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.

Only bar food after 9.00pm and room service ceased at 10.00pm. I arrived late after a long frustrating trip, I am diabetic and the only suggestion from the front desk was "walk to the main street , something might be open". The night I stayed there was torrential rain and an active tornado watch! Not the experience one would expect from a 5 star prestige hotel

We were there for a family funeral, and the Caroline Inn did a beautiful job handling the rooms, perception, and any requests we had. I truly professional experience. I have stayed there a number of times, and I've always been pleased with the experience.

It seemed like there were a series of small issues that occurred during our stay that, taken individually, wouldn't be a big deal, but added together resulted in a mediocre experience from what is supposed to be a highly rated hotel. The breakfast delivery hanger had already been filled out prior to our check-in, so it required getting a new one. These weren't available at the front desk when we swung by, but delivered to the room. Since the menus for the restaurant are not in the room binder, we went online and ordered coffee with dessert on the evening of check-in. We were contacted after ordering that the French Press coffee of the online menu was not available and only could order a hoddle. It would be nice if the website was kept more up-to-date. We had left a contact case at home, so because it is not something that is carried in the gift shop, we had to run home to get it. If we weren't locals, we would have had to run to the drugstore (our fault that we forgot it, but a rather common travel item that might be good to stock). Our housekeeper came by twice the morning of our departure, once before our breakfast delivery had arrived and once while we were waiting for breakfast delivery errors to be corrected (i.e., if we have requested breakfast delivery at 9:30, we aren't going to be checked out at 9:15). Our breakfast delivery initially omitted glasses of water and coffee cream and went to bring them back. During that time, we found there wasn't butter with the pancakes, which resulted in an even longer wait before eating. Some of the TV channels seemed to have errors (e.g., static-y/jerky frames occasionally). During breakfast, someone's phone call was transferred to our room, instead of the restaurant. Also, the survey that was to go to the hotel said it couldn't save and to try again later, but now the survey link only lets me fill out this TripAdvisor survey. Arrival, room cleanliness and amenities, and check out were all okay. Would recommend the hotel for the experience of staying in a historic place, but not for the expectation of a perfect stay.

The whole experience was excellent and exceeded any expectations that I may have had. The room was lovely, the sleeping on the delightful beds enhanced the stay. The food and ambience at Crossroads was very good.

We stayed at the Carolina Inn for a family graduation. The Traditions are visible and special throughout the hotel. A perfect venue to celebrate a visit, graduation, or other event associated with a family member attending UNC Chapel Hill. Located in a perfect place, near the University and downtown Chapel Hill. Note that price levels were extremely high compared with more conventional out of the direct area chain hotels. For a special occasion, a particularly wonderful choice.
