High quality hotel with reasonable rates. Close to downtown Chapel Hill, Durham and the campus. This place is a destination of its own. Beautiful facilities - well maintained. Very friendly staff and excellent food/service.

Outstanding facility that was a quick walk outside to our classrooms at Loudermilk Hall. Only recommendations are to accomoddate late check outs for all of the LOGTECH students as our last class starts at 8 am and ends at 1 pm and later hours at the bar. Very polite staff, clean and well maintained rooms and facilities and an excellent... More

Great property, but most important - great service and customer service by staff! The food selection was awesome and the rooms reminded me of Marriott properties. The campus is extremely clean and could not ask for anything more.

Dear 92530ChrisA, Thank you for great comments about your experience here at Rizzo. Almost all of the finishes are brand new, courtesy of our recent expansion and renovation.

The hotel was clean and had excellent amenities. I was there 7 nights for a conference and the staff made it feel like home. Erin and Eric in the sports bar were excellent providing fast, friendly service for our large group.

I stayed at the Rizzo Conference Center from July 15-19 2016 because I was attending an onsite conference. Not only are the grounds gorgeous, but the rooms are nicer than most hotel rooms I've stayed in! Spacious, pretty views and clean.

I would encourage all programs to have there professional workshops at this location. Way too many conveniences and bonuses to discuss. But the private study rooms, free shuttle, stocked kitchens for daily snacks and free WiFi are a few.

I was part of a group that booked the conference center for two overlapping workshops. The staff and facilities are perfect.

We stayed here as part of a wedding group. We had four of us in one room; we thought the rooms were large compared to other hotels and the bathroom was updated. We used the pool and health club, both which were very nice. Centrally located to UNC and Duke. Also found the pantry and washer and dryer very handy.... More

The Rizzo Conference Center is an excellent choice when visiting the "Southern Part of Heaven." Great accommodations, service, and food and it is convenient to local venues, restaurants, and shopping. Best hotel value for the money in the area and the free "Klondike" bars aren't bad either.
