I had the pleasure of checking into The Franklin Hotel for a one night stay July 20, 2011 with my Mom. We were in town on business, and the hotel was a much needed break after a very busy day. From the moment we pulled in and the gentleman Stephan helped us out with our bags. The Franklin has underground self parking for hotel guests with in and out privileges. We kept our keys which made it a breeze to come and go, you just use your room key to access the parking lot. We were offered sweet tea, ushered to the reception desk and check in was lovely. Becky and Deidre both answered all of our questions and welcomed us to a great stay. Our room was extremely well kept, very clean, and quite spacious. We did have a room with a balcony. It was 105 degrees in Chapel Hill so the balcony was not used. The room had complementary water and wireless Internet which is always a plus. I was also made aware of a free made to order breakfast in the morning, unfortunately due to time constraints we did not partake in breakfast. Overall I would really have to say that The Franklin Hotel raised the bar extremely high for other hotels not only in the Chapel Hill area, but hotels in general. My experience was simply wonderful.
