Just finished another game weekend at the Franklin Hotel. We have been coming here for the last 3 seasons. We started out splitting our weekends between the historic Carolina Inn and the Franklin. But the Franklin won our hearts. Don't get me wrong the Carolina Inn is a tradition and a wonderful hotel. But the Franklin is our favorite because it offers the following:
1- a modern hotel with large rooms beautifully decorated, a spacious living area with sofa and desk, an in-room fridge and separate bath and dressing/make-up table.
2- an elegant dining room with delicious (and free) buffet breakfast.
3- a passionate staff that has not changed in the three years we have been coming here.
4- a fun bar that is there mainly for the guest's enjoyment.
5- a location that is walking distance to the university and the best area restaurants. We park our car and don't get into it again until we leave town.
6- free parking
We feel like family when we visit. There are some downsides. Outside of the complimentary breakfast and a bar menu there is no true restaurant or room service. But isn't it more fun to explore Franklin St and support the local scene?
Thank You Franklin Hotel!
