Great location, fantastic restaurant. Very comfortable rooms. Staff goes out of their way to be helpful. Currently going through renovations but still a great place to stay. Prices are very competitive with area hotels.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with family

It's tough to find a more perfect place to stay in the Chapel Hill area of NC. Just a mile from downtown and UNC campus, the Siena Hotel has to be the friendliest hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff go out of their way to always say hi and offer to do whatever you need to have done. The building itself is beautiful with a top rated restaurant (without outlandish prices) and a spacious lobby. Wireless internet throughout the hotel. The rooms are large with marble floors in the bathrooms and large walk-in showers.

I only wish the hotel was just a little closer to the airport (about 30 minutes).

We've been coming to the Siena for more than a dozen years. It's been a homebase for us when we were working with companies in the area and more recently, when we've been visiting family in the area. As we approached this visit, my wife and I wondered whether we'd be happy to be there again. Over the past few years, the Siena has needed a serious update. To our delight, when we arrived, we found that a very serious update has just recently happened. The rooms have always been large and now, new carpeting, new furnishings, new safes and refrigerators... and totally new bathrooms have totally modernized the place. Free wifi, and a very nice b&b breakfast if you select that option have been added. What a change. We're happy to know that we can keep coming back to a place we've always fundamentally enjoyed, knowing that it has updated its facilities to provide a quality upscale experience for this century.

I stayed here overnight for business and was happily surpised by the decor as well as the size of the rooms. The staff was very helpful at check-in and check out. We also dined at the restaurant (Il Palio) that night and the food was delicious.

Room Tip: My room was only outfitted with a shower, so be sure to ask for one with a bathtub when making your...

I stayed at this hotel when it first opened many years ago. It was Christmas season. Beautifully decorated.
Recently stayed again on business and it was again an excellent accommodation. Large spacious rooms, enormous marble baths. Tucked away among old oaks. Very quiet and peaceful. The staff was professional and courteous. The bartender made a very nice crafted cocktail, which was of some surprise, given it's a 6 seat bar, but very intimate.

A long time visitor (and once upon a time resident of) to Chapel Hill, I had never stayed at The Siena before. I will be back. The recently remodeled hotel is lovely and the staff was professional and courteous. The fitness facility was a pleasant surprise and the room upgrade was much appreciated. The renovation appears to still be in progress, but caused no issues for me. .

Room Tip: The corner king rooms are very nice.

This is a beautiful hotel located close to UNC. We had a corner King room and it was amazing! The bed was very comfortable and all of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The area is great for going for a walk and easy access to restaurants etc. There is a drugstore just across the street. The restaurant at the hotel is very nice and the food was wonderful. My only complaint was that the service in the restaurant was slow.I will most definitely stay again! There is no swimming pool on the property.

Room Tip: Corner King Room!
