“Indulgence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

I remember coming here once or twice as a kid when visiting family. It enchants me just as much now as an adult as it did when I was a child.

Yes, it's possible to lace a hotel with the most indulgent decor and eschew all that is tawdry. I love the way it looks and feels: "Wealth." Sometimes that's fun (and sometimes, little run down places are just as much fun). Rates are very reasonable given the amenities and swanky atmosphere.

Not exactly walking distance to Franklin Street but close enough for a reasonable drive. Fabulous bar and evening appetizer menu, which you can enjoy outside among the flowers and wicker chairs while gazing at the fountain.

I always want to come back.

This was my second stay at this wonderful hotel. Each stay, has been a memorable experience. The staff really could not be better. When I walked into the lobby after a long drive, the front desk staff and the bellman greeted me like a friend. Check-in was effortless, and my room was just beautiful. I had requested a quiet room, and they did a great job with the location. Since I was just exhausted, I ordered room service which was fairly priced, prompt, and delicious.

My husband and I travel quite a bit, and we've seen it all. I really wish we had occasion to stay in Chapel Hill more often, since I am in love with this hotel! Top Notch!!

Room Tip: I requested a quiet room and they absolutely accommodated. I had a corner room on the 5th floor. Rea...

Let me start by saying I stay in hotels over 100 nights per year for business. This is a great hotel very close to UNC Chapel Hill. Service is great. Platinum Marriott Rewards members get a free breakfast in the restaurant. Bathrooms are really nice. It's not a Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons but at $150ish rates, you will not find a nicer hotel.

We came to Chapel Hill for a campus visit of UNC and chose The Siena simply because it was a Marriott hotel. What a wonderful surprise! From the doormen who open the door EVERY time you enter, to the personalized one-on-one check in, to the hotel to campus (and return) shuttle service they provided (while allowing us to leave our car at the hotel so we didn't have to fight for campus parking!), every minute of our stay was terrific! We did not eat at IL Palio, but maybe next time we will...because if we are ever in Chapel Hill again, this is where we will stay.
The only bad part of our stay was that we were only there one night!

Our daughter is a student at UNC Chapel Hill and we have stayed at the Siena every time we are there to visit. From the minute you walk into the lobby you feel special. The staff is so accommodating and check in is always a breeze. The rooms are beautiful and always spotless. We use the van service to and from the University and it is very convenient. Parking is free and the restaurant is always excellent. Love the bartender, even remembers our drinks from the last time we visited. Love the open atmosphere of the lobby/bar. Will always stay at the Siena while in Chapel Hill! Love it!

Room Tip: Have never had a bad room!

What a treat to find the Siena, a Marriott Autograph Selection. The service was A+ and the breakfast was so good we chose to eat in everyday of our stay. If Chapel Hill is where u=you want to be, this property is perfect. It has a touch and feel of both France and Italy and you will feel the relaxed setting from the time you pull on the property. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a corner view and balcony

I have stayed at the Sienna many times. It's character is a little different this year as it is now a Marriott signature property, but it is still a very pleasent place to stay. The room is well kept, and the staff is helpful and friendly. Gone is the big southern breakfast that I really loved. All around nice home haste in Chapel Hill.

Room Tip: The back side is a little quieter
