10 members of our family- ages 13-70- thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. 3 of our rooms were suites which were unbelievable especially the giant balconies and living rooms. The guest pantries were a great treat for the teens.

Excellent property with amenities and close to UNC Chapel Hill. Use the shuttle service to Franklin Street. We liked the location as well as the grounds. The pub on site was excellent. We took the complimentary shuttle service to the football game.

A beautiful spot but watch out for extra charges. Our 4 year old loved wandering around the grounds and she was so excited to visit the snack room/kitchen and pick out her own juice and Ice Cream! Plus they have a washer and dryer just in case of accidents. Bonus was the excitement of our 4 year old seeing the...

Good experience overall. Would expect to be allowed upon request a room with 2 beds... especially when most rooms were empty. Also the pool wasn't heated. Would have lived to enjoy that. I'm sure most people enjoy the guest pantry...that was very nice.

Comfortable rooms and beautifully decorated. There are free snacks in the pantry (ice cream, pop corn, drinks and such). That was a nice touch! The only negative is that our room smelled like a leach field and the girl who checked us out didn't care.

I booked the Rizzo a couple of years ago when The Carolina Inn was full and I have stayed here ever since. I will stay here for at least then next four years while one of my children finishes their education at UNC.

This hotel is second to none when it comes to value. Very nice quality room, linens, and bathroom. Best of all is the pantry that offers free ice cream, Klondike bars, popcorn, and beverages on each floor. They even have washers and dryers with free detergent. Beautiful setting and friendly staff. Highly recommended.

My wife and I booked a two night stay at the Rizzo Center Hotel for Phi Beta Kappa ceremony at UNC Chapel Hill. The hotel exceeded our expectations. The staff is very friendly and professional. We were so satisfied with our room that we booked an additional room for our son to share the experience.
