Loved the music on the lawn on Friday evening. The staff, our room, the historic Inn and Chapel Hill were all fantastic.The bar is a great low-key place to hang out as well. There's history in every corner of the Inn.

This hotel could not be nicer. The room was spacious, beautifully furnished. Lots of history on the walls. The location is ideal for walking around campus and going to restaurants.
Wish we could have stayed longer!

My husband and I stayed here for just one night for my birthday this year . It has been on my "bucket list" for awhile. It was incredible! So beautifully decorated and very welcoming. We will definitely be going back hopefully soon!

Stayed here for one night in June while my boyfriend toured me through his favorite place (Chapel Hill). The hotel was beautiful, the staff was wonderful, and I didn't want to leave. Everyone was welcoming when we arrived, taking care of us the second we pulled up to the front entrance. The hotel is beautifully decorated, with places to sit and relax throughout. We were looking forward to attending Fridays on the Front Porch but after walking around Chapel Hill all day, we were exhausted and unfortunately there were no seats left. It looks as though this is a very popular locals event so everyone arrived early and staked out the chairs. The only recommendation I would make for the hotel is to provide blankets or camping chairs for guests to borrow. Since we were visiting from NYC, we obviously didn't have access to anything like that. So we ended up at a local bar, enjoying a drink before dinner, instead of staying at Fridays on the Front Porch.
The last thing I should mention is that the beds are incredibly comfortable. We were upgraded to a king and I can say that I didn't want to get out of bed the next morning!
Thank you for such a wonderful stay in a beautiful and historic hotel. We enjoyed stopping to read all of the stories and pictures posted throughout the hotel and learn a bit more about the hotel's history.
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Chapell Hill

Southern hospitality at it's best. We were in Chapel Hill for orientation a the university with our granddaughter. We had a lovely room, and enjoyed the hotel very much. The breakfast was lovely, especially the red velvet pancakes. The staff was professional and very helpful.
