What an incredibly pleasant surprise to find the Rizzo Center. I booked through a mass booking site several days before the trip. The Rizzo Center offered the best price for the amenities I was looking for. With a dinnertime arrival and morning departure, the location to UNC was just right. Our only set back was dinner in the lounge: great...

Everything about the Rizzo Center is fabulous, from the winding manicured lane to the lobby and then the gorgeous room! The staff was absolutely fantastic, especially the shuttle driver who took us to the UNC campus..dropped us off right in front of the admissions building...and when we were ready to come back we just called the front desk and she...

Lovely, large hotel with great amenities including complimentary breakfast, snacks, beverages, and laundry facilities. Clearly geared for business travelers but convenient for leisure travelers as well. Beautiful property, nice bar/rec room, plenty of parking and a shuttle into town.

Arrived at 3 for UNC game. Nearly 5 before checkin. Late for early dinner. Public trashcans in restroom and outside were overflowing. Housekeeping knocked on door at 8am next am to "clean" room. Free breakfast is institutional fare. Rooms are nice and quiet, great location, but canceled upcoming reservation.

Dear Frieda H, I'm very sorry that you did not have anything less than a stellar experience. We have already made several changes as a result of this particular weekend which was very busy due to the UNC basketball game. That is certainly not an excuse, rather an opportunity to improve. One of those changes involves housekeeping, which will now...

What a lovely stay-cation find in Chapel Hill--- amenities were incredible, furnishings were beautiful and the pool, fire pit , bar area and free breakfast were all great. What a nice surprise off the path and close enough to campus to enjoy activities but not be in the midst of the bar scene.

Dear 21lizr, Thank you very much for the kind words. That was a really great description you provided. We do have our own secret little hide-away here, where it's quaint and quiet, but a very short distance to the action when you want it. I hope we'll see again for another "stay-cation" in the future. All the best, Brent

The downstairs game room with outdoor pool and fire pit was awesome! The hotel provided a great game room for watching the UNC vs UVA basketball game. We were also able to play pool with friends after the UNC win!

Everything was on point! Food, service, atmosphere. Love! Love! Love! The service was amazing and my favorite part was the guest pantry. I am pretty sure I gained 5 pounds on my 4 day stay and it was totally worth it!
