How to Get There
I recently gave myself a writing retreat at the Franklin Hotel in Chapel Hill. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Its decor was lovely. My room was extremely comfortable, clean, quiet, and had great views of the city. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants, coffee shops, and small boutiques. It is also a short walk to UNC-Chapel Hill's campus. You can easily park and walk to most everything you might need. If you reserve a room with a terrace, some rooms are bigger than others at the same price point (some include desks and some do not). There is no room service, but there is a restaurant in the hotel and plenty close by. Parking, in my opinion, is a bit steep, but the hotel is in a city with a lot of other parking options.
Lovely rooms and cheap rates over the holidays. Right in the middle of the action with Carrboro nightlife and food. Off-street parking and friendly staff. Must have been one of the best in the years passed.
The location of this hotel is perfect on Franklin Street. Very convenient to restaurants, shops and UNC campus. The breakfast service can be a little slow, but the food was very good. Would consider staying here again.
