We were extremely pleased with our stay. The room was spacious and clean and the beds comfortable. We appreciated the large shower and full sized shampoo/conditioner/soaps! The 'guest pantry' was a wonderful surprise, and we thought it was a brilliant idea to have the washer and dryer, which we used with pleasure (while enjoying ice cream and a drink). These...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 days ago

The Rizzo Center was a complete and delightful surprise. The property is gorgeous, the room was spacious and bright, the amenities were generous and unexpected. A short 5-10 minute drive to the center of town and campus. Highly recommend.

Friendly and helpful staff and on the same level as the Ritz in Chicago to the Four Seasons in Boston! Do yourself a huge favor,...

Stayed at the Rizzo Center for B School graduation. My wife and daughter loved it. Rooms were flawlessly clean, the amenities are fantastic, and the value was evident throughout the stay. I've stayed at other properties in the area and there's no question I'll be making the Rizzo Conference Center my preferred venue going forward.

Had no idea that "Rizzo Inn" listed in Expedia under lodgings was linked to UNC or Business School. Nor did we expect the awe inspiring setting of mature trees and spring flowers. The Inn at the conference center is impressive. Rooms are spacious,well furnished and comfortable. One flaw is common failing in hotels/motels-no exhaust fan in bathroom/toilet. Parking on site-breakfast...

Dear Grayendo, Thank you for the kind and thorough review of your visit to Rizzo. We recently underwent an expansion and renovation of all guestrooms and public space. Additionally, the property resides on 30 acres with 3 different buildings and several points of entry. Subsequently, we put a lot of thought into way-finding considering the sprawling nature of the property...

Our experiences with the Rizzo Center have been very positive. The room is very spacious and very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. At night, it is quiet which is far different than many other places we have stayed. It is our favorite place to stay when in Chapel Hill.

All my expectations were exceeded! The rooms were fantastic, the beds were incredibly comfortable. I loved the guest pantries. I was there for a conference, and was able to experience breakfast, lunch and dinner and all were excellent. The drinks were delicious, and the courtyard was a perfect place for social hour.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Rizzo. the snack closet was a bonus (ben and jerry's ice cream, Klondike bars, popcorn, sodas and water), as was the free shuttle service to anywhere within a 5-mile radius. the free breakfast was exceptional...not just cold cereal and make-your-own waffles.

First time visitor to the Rizzo Center. Booked two rooms while we were in town to tour UNC with our daughter. The grounds and accomodations are beautiful and make one feel as though you are staying at a resort. Loved the family pantry at the end of the hall. The interior decor was lovely with many luxurious details such as...
