The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Located in the charming town of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, is one of America's most enchanting inns. The Carolina Inn, a AAA Four-Diamond Award property, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and originally opened in 1924. It is architecturally noteworthy, as it marries elements of antebellum styles with Georgian and neoclassical features. Part of the Destination Hotels & Resorts collection of posh properties, The Carolina Inn is located on the actual campus of the University of North Carolina, and is a popular hideaway for intellectuals and socialites. You will find a collection of well-appointed guest rooms including seven luxury suites, with a palette of rich colors, priceless antiques and cozy furnishings that resemble those found in a lavish Southern estate.

The Carolina Inn is also home to Carolina Crossroads restaurant, which boasts Mobil Four Star and AAA Four Diamond Award status. Its elegant setting provides an inviting backdrop for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a menu of seasonal fare and interpretations of classic Southern cuisine. The inn's long-standing tradition of serving afternoon tea is as enticing now as it was seven decades ago - as ladies and gentlemen convene in the dining room surrounded by heirloom china and silver serving pieces. Sunday brunch and room service are also available. Be sure to explore Chapel Hill, a town rooted in Southern tradition and charm. Step outside the inn and discover a vibrant arts and cultural scene coupled with a collection of upscale boutiques, wine bars and delightful sidewalk cafes.

Ask for one of their suites for a very special treat. The room was clean, quiet, and exceeded our expectations. And the location was absolutely perfect. You can walk to town and walk through the very beautiful UNC campus.

I stayed in this hotel while on a business trip, on arrival the reception was lovely and I left my bags there, so that I could have something to eat in the bar. My bags were taken up to my room which was perfect. I went to sleep around 8pm as I was still on UK time and got woken up twice, once to see if I wanted any towels and the second time was to bring a drink up that I had pre ordered but was supposed to have been done shortly after going to my room (this call was at least 4 hours later)... Breakfast was great plenty to chose from and that staff were lovely. That evening I arrived back and I decided to stay in and have room service, and this is really where my feedback is reflected in the score. The is no menu or anything in the room to inform you of breakfast times, room service. There is some sort of pantry that was near the lifts but there was no information on how you access this for things like water, ice. I like to have a guide in the room I don't want to have to keep calling room service to find out. I rung down for a menu and was told to log onto the internet and find the menu there, this was not what I was expecting and felt that given the type of hotel it was, this was very lazy. The hotel was spotless and the service was excellent, I just think that it lacks those finishing touches that I would expect from a hotel like this. I would finish by saying that I would definitely stay there again.

Here for a meeting. Brought my wife. Very friendly & attentive staff. Bed turndown every night. Rooms spotless. Got to sample breakfast, Southern BBQ, an Asian and an Italian Food buffet. Food was excellent. Very nice part of town near college campus, art museum, and Planetarium. Short drive to NC botanical gardens. I would highly recommend this place.
