What a great find! Terrific staff, central location.

Excellent accommodations! Very clean, creatively decorated & courteous staff!

Great location. Staff is wonderful. Best cocktail bar in Chapel Hill

Great location, great service. We used this hotel for a wedding block.

What a lovely hotel! We wanted to stay here for our recent trip because we had stayed there after our wedding a few years ago, and it was not very much at all more expensive then the next closest choice. No free breakfast though. The staff was great and the bed was so comfortable. Like sleeping in a cloud. I'm very happy with my stay.

The room was very comfortable, 4th floor facing Franklin St, and there was a very nice "seating" area outside the room which acted like a living room for those of us staying at the property. The staff was very friendly and helpful when it was possible. Unfortunately, the toilet in my room would not flush (the float in the tank stuck open) and there was no maintenance staff available to correct the problem and no available rooms in which to move. The staff was very apologetic and compensated me for the problem encountered.

This is a first class hotel located right in the middle of all the action on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill. Wonderful experience!

Chapel Hill ModernNovember 27, 2011 El Dormido FromLivermore-Amador Valley, CATraveler Type:CoupleTravel With Kids:None Amenities: 5 / 5 Location: 4 / 5 Room Cleanliness: 4 / 5 Room Comfort: 5 / 5 Staff: 4 / 5 Value: 4 / 5 Our experience on the night following Thanksgiving was both very pleasant & mildly comical. The bellman very capably showed us all the fine points of the room, referencing the extras that he could bring us. As he concluded, he noticed a nice bowl of grapes on a side table, and a packet of fine goat cheese in the refrigerator, neither of which he expected in the room. We could all only conclude that they had been left by housekeeping. Our daughter couldn't resist mentioning Goldilocks. The rest of the room was impeccable. Management decided to comp us a couple of drinks in their bar to make up for this surprise. We did not feel this was necessary. The walk-in shower & rest of the bathroom were very attractive & functional. The bed featured goose down pillows which could be replaced if we were allergic. The complimentary breakfast next morning was first class, and was enjoyed by lots of happy-looking guests including children. The hotel features a central atrium which would have been very pleasant had we been able to stay longer. The staff were very professional, attentive & quick to remedy any short-coming. Night LifeTip:By all means, be sure not to miss Sugarland ("We won't let you down, or hold you up, but we will dessert you.") for scrumptious cup cakes, other baked goods, Italian ice cream, and lots of truly imaginative layer cakes for every occasion.Distance:Short Walk Yes! I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

Great service and location. Room was nice if a little small. Not much closet space. The water pressure could be better. But all those things are small and overall a great weekend at the Franklin.

I loved the location and having easy parking in Chapel Hill's busiest part of town. It is really easy to get to Carrboro from here as well. The in room office, turn down service, internet, and tv are all easily enjoyed.

The Franklin was a real find! It is a tiny jewel of a hotel right in downtown Chapel Hill. We stayed here during the orientation for admitted students to UNC...and it could not have worked out better. Being so close to the campus offered us the opportunity to stroll through at any time of the day or night, and gave us the chance to frequent the various college hot spots on the main strip... We loved the accommodations...from the plush linens to the LCD screen...from the on-site, under-hotel parking to the balconied rooms. Great little hotel!
