Don't know what I was expecting but I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms are nice the beds are comfortable there's a refrigerator and a microwave and a safe to lock your valuables in. There are pantries on every floor filled with pop and water and juice and ice cream.

Perfect experience dropping our son off at UNC. Couldn't be a better place for easy access to roadways and a break from the moving process. The pool is perfect as are the walking paths. The guest pantry with real fresh coffee and water, not to mention laundry is so necessary yet rarely available. Every hotel chain should be watching.

I came here on a business trip. The experience was great. The staff were very nice; the hotel room was clean and big. We ate at the Dubose House and the staff were very accommodating and nice. I would recommend it.

I booked the Rizzo Center for a night online not knowing anything about the property. I must say it exceeded my expectations. After a long day of moving my daughter into an apartment for her sophomore year, the amenities and room were just what was needed to relax. I will definitely be staying here again for future visits to Chapel... More

The Rizzo Center is the best off campus option in Chapel Hill. The open pantries that offer free soft drinks, ice cream, coffee, tea, and popcorn make a stay that much better. We used the commercial sized washers and dryers to do our UNC student son's laundry. The physical beauty of the place and the high level of the accommodations... More

Excellent location. Very quite two night stay. Only wish the energy saver controlled room air unit would have cooled our room more quickly after we re-entered the room as it cut off when we were out and took some time to get to a normal comfort level. Staff were very polite and efficiently handled everything really well..

Dear E4513WXroberto, Thank you for the kind words about your visit here to Rizzo. We do have some environmentally friendly practices in place, like the placing the key card in the holder just inside the door to control some of the lighting, we also recycle everywhere and compost as well.

Ok. So I purchased a room at McLean Hall in the Rizzo Conference Center on the campus of the University of North Carolina. I'm thinking that an upgraded dorm room would be in order. I was shocked when I got off the elevator!!! The wood paneled walls and hardwood floors were nicely done. The room was one of the largest,... More

The room was great. Finding the entrance to the hotel was a bit challenging. It looks like all the other buildings on the campus. During my travel of NC this week, this hotel by far had the best accommodations. Would enjoy staying there again.

The Rizzo Center offered our group to meet in convenient areas and stay in close by private rooms. Southern charm with modern amenities, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Center. And we were well fed at the DuBose house!
