    This hotel has a real sophisticated yet rustic Italian flare to it. As soon as you pull up to the hotel you'll notice the quaint juliette balconies on all the room windows. The rooms themselves have a unique look to them and are distinctive from room to room. Right outside the front door of the hotel is a comfortable lounge area. It serves as a waiting area since you will need a car to get anywhere. The hotel is fairly close to lots of places but not close enough for you to walk to them. The lobby is spacious and comfortable. Be sure to get a drink at the bar. I had the Illimonatti and still remember it fondly. Well made, nice and strong. The service is very warm and friendly and quite quick too.

    This hotel is pretty unique and has a really cool European feel to it. The Italian theme is everywhere – from the décor in the lobby, to the Juliet balconies off the guest rooms. The rooms are spacious and I like that each one is unique. This place is definitely not a cookie cutter chain hotel. I think it’s the service that really stood out and impressed me – everyone from the doorman to the bartender was super friendly and helpful. I thought the fitness was decent, nothing special, and the bar is cozy but on the smaller side. The only real negative for me is that this hotel is not walkable, since it’s located a mile or so from downtown Chapel Hill and Carrboro. I know they offer free transportation within Chapel Hill, but I find it more convenient to just walk places. Overall, though, this is a good hotel option in Chapel Hill.
