This campus style center was a pleasure to visit. The grounds are beautiful and the buildings make you feel like you are on a college campus. Clean and well designed rooms, some of the nicest I have ever stayed in. The guest pantries were a first for me! The overall experience felt special and unique!

The Rizzo Center is one of best accommodations I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. Its primary function is as a conference center, but even though casual travelers aren't the intended audience, it is a perfect location for anyone visiting the area. The atmosphere is exceedingly comfortable and relaxing. Unless there is a large conference going on, occupancy seems...

I went to this hotel for a work conference and felt like I was on vacation! The grounds are gorgeous, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the conference rooms were lovely. And what is a conference without constant food? The food provided was exceptional -- I loved that there was something for every type of diet. And the...

The Rizzo Center was wonderful; both for services offered during the training I attended and the hotel accommodation. Excellent food, beautiful grounds and comfortable accommodation; couldn't ask for anything more.

The accommodations were very nice. The breakfast buffet was better than the typical continental breakfast at most major motel chains. Our group had a buffet lunch at the adjacent Dubose House. I only wish I had more time to tour the grounds and spend more leisure time looking around the area.

Dear HankO726, Thank you for the kind remarks about the experience you had here at Rizzo. I hope that you will have the opportunity to return and get that tour of the grounds worked into the next visit. There's 30 acres to explore and the gardens are truly spectacular. All the best, Brent

Soooo comfortable, welcoming and accomodating. We had a great view of the pool, a spacious room with super-cozy beds, and a quiet restful sleep. This is a beautiful facility. In fact, we weren't sure it was actually a hotel when we arrived in the dark of the night as it has a bit of a residential feel to it! Close...

Dear rbsla, Thank you for the wonderful review of your visit to Rizzo. The residential feel is absolutely intentional. The property was once a family home and we've honored that tradition with the design of the rest of property, the beautiful, original gardens and the genuine, familial nature in our interactions with everyone. I'm really glad you enjoyed your time...

We were in town for a wedding, and so enjoyed our stay at the Rizzo. From the beautiful rooms and incredible amenities, we couldn't have been more pleased. The location was perfect for our needs, as we were a stone's throw from all of the activities we wanted to enjoy (namely, a Blue Cup at He's Not and a BLT...

We will never stay anywhere else when visiting Chapel Hill. This hotel is well appointed, has a kitchen suite on every floor for guests to enjoy free beverages and snacks. The staff is friendly, helpful and you are about five minutes from campus. The rooms are immaculate and the bed was great. Who could ask for more?

We were in town for the UNC vs. Duke game and chose the Rizzo based on the reviews I read online. We were not disappointed. The grounds, buildings and view are gorgeous.

The Rizzo Center is a lovely property! The room was very comfortable and well presented. The pool looked great - shame it was too cold for us to try it out. Perfect distance from UNC - very close, but felt like a country getaway!

Dear SherdenM, Thank you for sharing the kind remarks about your time with us at Rizzo. It was a bit of a chilly weekend, but the pool is heated. So if you don't mind the chill in the air while getting to the pool, the pool itself is in the low 80's. Hope to see you again on a future...
