Thank you so much for taking time to leave a terrific review for our team. We are pleased to know you enjoyed your stay and had everything you needed close by. We are located about 4 miles from the Hospital, Cancer Center, Children's Hospital and Burn Center. Our hotel shuttle runs that route at the top of the hour. We hope you were able to catch a ride with over to your doctors appointment with one of our drivers. It was our pleasure to host you during your visit to UNC Medical Centers and we hope to see you next time you are in Chapel Hill. Safe travels to you and your family!

Staff continuously worked to make sure your stay is comfortable. I don't think you could ask for any better service. The hotel is convenient to any campus activity and several restaurants and shops are within walking distance.

I am so sorry, I did not look at alert. I do hope you stayed there, it is very close 3 miles or so. You are past the highway so you do not have all the traffic of other hotels. Hope you had a great time, at the game.

We also did not have a handicap room, but they probably have at least one. I would call to check though, just to be safe.
