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.

Not having stayed at the Carolina Inn in the last 4-5 years I was pleasant reminded as to why I enjoyed staying at the hotel in the past. Great quality and service. If I was on business the room could be configured for a more business stay but for a leisure weekend this place is perfect. Obviously, located perfectly if you want to be immersed in the UNC campus.

Beautiful houses, rooms and surroundings - perfect for any situation. Personnel helpful and genuinely friendly. Location central and nearby all you need in Chapel Hill. Rooms personal, clean and very nice. Quiet area and no disturbance from traffic at night (or day)

My wife and I have stayed at the Carolina Inn many times over the years. We are both graduates of the University and appreciate the unique nature of the and relationship between the Inn and the University. It is always impeccable without being over the top. My only small complaint would be the price charged for graduation weekend. I certainly understand the nature of Supply and Demand (I have an Economics Degree from UNC Chapel Hill!) but the graduation weekend pricing almost seems like gouging. With that said, would I do it again...of oldest was graduating and we wanted to best Chapel Hill experience possible...and the Carolina Inn always delivers!
