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.

Nice hotel, but the valet service.....Refused to let a business associate park his car and I complained about that. He had to park in an outside lot. Then coincidentally half an hour later the valets lost the keys to my car. Well well well.

My wife and I come here every year for New Year's Eve. The staff is always more than helpful and the rooms are always prestine. These are just a couple of good reasons why we return every year. Now I'm just filling space... :)

The facility is beautiful. Very clean and unique. My only compliant is that I could hear alarms, televisions and conversations in the rooms next to me. It made me feel uncomfortable and that my room was not private.

We spent two really nice days at the Carolina Inn. We arrived late but were able to meet many from the wedding at the bar downstairs. The next morning had a great breakfast there and then walked around the town. The wedding was held inside because of rain and was still a pleasant experience. That evening we sat by the fire pits and the next morning once again shared breakfast before checking out. We really love the beds and pillows would love to find the same brands for home.

We're Chapel Hill locals and brought our visiting Grandmother to a delightful afternoon tea here. The food was outstanding and abundant--"delectable" according to my daughter. The tea was delicious and everything was served so beautifully. Our server, Anna, was attentive and helpful. She took great care of us! A very special memory.
