I have seen this property given high praise in many reviews yet many fail to mention one of its best features--it is located on the campus of UNC. If you have a reason to be on campus, this is the place to stay. The hotel provides a shuttle for appointments at UNC, and I was dropped off and picked up promptly. The hotel itself is lovely and charming. The rooms are nicely decorated, extremely clean, and up to date, especially considering that it is a historic property. The staff is helpful and changed my room when I wanted one closer to the elevator. The one drawback is that it has only one restaurant which is quite expensive and I believe over-rated (see separate review). Thus there is no quick, simple and reasonably priced place to eat. Room service was on time, accurate, and tasty, but again, very expensive. All in all, this is definitely the place to stay if you are looking for a deluxe property on or near UNC.
