My husband and I stayed at the Franklin Hotel when we brought our daughter to UNC to move in. She is living in Granville Towers which could not be more convenient to the hotel. It is within easy walking distance of all the fun places to eat and shop on Franklin St. We had a king room with a view of Franklin Street.
I found everything about the hotel to be fantastic. It is a beautiful place, right down to the marble floors in the elevators. Our room was spectacular. There were tons of big, fluffy towels, a huge glass shower w/ European door, granite countertops, and more. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room quiet. I had read here about the noise of the AC but we had no such issue.
They gave us a pillow menu that we didn't have a chance to use but was a nice touch.
It was spotlessly clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating. I will definitely stay here again during our next 4 years in Chapel Hill, provided I can get in! It is much sought after during big weekends (parent's weekend, basketball games, etc).
