I had the good fortune to be able to stay at the Franklin in Chapel Hill this past weekend...it continues to be one of my favorite hotels and I always look forward to being there. As always, I was greeted warmly at the front desk by David and Stephen, who genuinely seem to be happy to see me! I stayed in a different room this time and was completely happy with my self - imposed mix up (I requested the wrong room number). The bed was so comfortable and the room so pleasant that it's hard to leave! I slept wonderfully. Breakfast was simple yet very good as always, served by Neri, who is always very courteous and helpful. Had a quick drink the night before with my favorite barkeep, Bryan. The bar was active and busy...a tad loud with the live music, but it was fine. Friends were also staying in the hotel at my suggestion, for the first time. They really enjoyed it too. All in all, the Franklin doesn't disappoint! I love it!
