“Best Hotel Experience to date!”
Reviewed 19 May 2012

After getting asked to leave the Marriott as the "over booked", we were sent to this absolutely wonderful Gem!

It was beautiful, quiet, and they were very accommodating. The Guest Pantry is open 24 hours a day and we enjoyed the full size beverages and Snacks.

The breakfast is not only well done the setting was beautiful, it was welcoming, delicious, and relaxing.

I will only stay here in the future when I am in Chapel Hill and I am a frequent traveler.

Great Job!!!

Room Tip: You may have to make a short walk up a beautifully landscaped brick walk way if the parking lot next...

The Rizzo Center rooms are spacious and immaculate; conference rooms available day and night; refrigerators stocked with complimentary soda/water/juices and ice cream on every floor. Delicious buffet
Breakfast in the DuBose mansion across the way for just $9 more/night is an EXCELLENT value.

Very convenient location to UNC Chapel Hill. Clean and comfortable rooms. The amenities were also very nice. Would be nice to have on demand TV but did not affect our overall experience.

Food is out of this world, both in quality, variety and quantity. Nice, quite, clean rooms with excellent furnishings. Nice amenities - fitness center, printer, wireless or wired internet, sports bar, pantry with coffee, softdrinks and ice cream. Beautiful grounds.

We went to Chapel Hill and tried for weeks to get two rooms at Carolina Inn (our son studied at the NCU and we came to see the place). No reply from Carolina Inn. Instead we booked Rizzo. And what a beautiful place! We stayed in 2 rooms in the main building - a fantastic old house with a magnificent hall, carefully restored and furnished just like in the old days. Large pretty old-school rooms. Wonderful breakfast. Great service. Full of atmosphere. Stay here! It's a little out of town - a mile or so from the main street. But if you have a car, no problem. You'll love it!
