We stayed at the Franklin Hotel while visiting UNC. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well decorated. The staff is very pleasant. I loved the location on Franklin St. We walked to campus easily even though it was cold outside. There were two negatives with our stay. The first was the cost of the rooms...we paid over two hundred dollars per night per room once taxes were added in...not sure the convenient location was quite worth it. The second was the size of the dining room for the "free breakfast." (Breakfast was included in the price of the room and it was fabulous..french toast, omelets, made to order eggs... not buffet style but in a dining room with a waiter.) Unfortunately, the dining room is small so we had to wait to be seated and then, in order to be seated together, we had to sit six people to a four person table. We had time to wait but I was annoyed. They should make their dining room larger. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.
