Best hotel in chapel hill! Sexy decor. Sarah at the front desk was awesome. Flavio the bellman is the smartest bellman you will ever meet! Wonderful stay. Only place I stay in chapel hill—but tough to get it booked. Awesome when you can.

We stayed here last year at the same time of year, for our professional organization annual meeting. The experience starts with smiling staff and a plate of warm chocolate cookies. The staff are uniformly friendly, courteous, and intending to please.

Description
We'd love for you to stay with us whether you're in town for business or pleasure! We are the only hotel in downtown Chapel Hill, right on Franklin Street - just steps away from all the action such as UNC Chapel More Hill's campus, Dean Smith Center, Kenan Stadium, UNC Hospitals, Morehead Planetarium, Ackland Art Museum, and tons of shops, restaurants, and entertainment options. Our guiding principle is to be hospitable, so we focus on our interactions with you above all else. Less

When I was there I did a run roughly following the Pumpkin Loop in the Carolina North Forest. You can just Google for it. That was a nice run in forest surroundings, slightly hilly, relatively smooth gravel surface.
