Hotel Report

Why Stay At Carolina Inn

Completed in 1924 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this charming 185-room hotel is set in one of America's prettiest college towns—Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

The Scoop

College towns can make for unexpected getaways, and Chapel Hill—known for its historic architecture, sports scene, and beloved Southern food spots—is a great example. Here, Georgian classrooms surround a leafy quad, and, from November to March, sports fans pack the Dean Dome to cheer on the Tar Heels basketball team. Set on the campus's western fringe, the 185-room Carolina Inn, built by university trustee John Sprunt Hill in 1924, features a blend of Colonial and Antebellum architecture, complete with a two-story portico and cupola inspired by George Washington's Mount Vernon. For a taste of true Southern cooking, the hotel's Carolina Crossroads restaurant serves seasonal dishes including peppercorn-dusted pork chops with whipped sweet potatoes.

Insider Tips

Staffers from the Spa at Bell House in nearby Pittsboro will come to the hotel for in-room massage treatments. Contact the hotel concierge to schedule a session.

If the Dean Dome is sold out, catch the game from an oversize leather chair at the inn's Carolina Crossroad's bar—and be sure to order a seasonal ale from Chapel Hill's Carolina Brewery.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) which is approximately 28 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 35-45 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.
