Reviewed yesterday NEW

The facilities are great -- everything appears to have been recently upgraded. The bar and gym were both nice and the rooms are generally comfortable. The only thing I would suggest is upgrading for a firmer mattress.

Very clean and well-kept property. Excellent sports bar and outdoor patio area, as well as good proximity to UNC main campus. Conference and break out rooms are exceptional, and Wi-Fi was very dependable.

Met and exceeded my expectations. The grounds were well manicured. The rooms were updated and clean. The staff was curtious and very helpful and last but not least the meals were top notch as well as the grounds.

I attended a weekend-long board meeting at the Rizzo center. The hotel is nice, but the food and service are outstanding. There was a county-wide watermain break and the hotel had to completely shut down. The staff seamlessly rebooked our entire group to another excellent hotel, then made sure the new facility had our scheduled meals and meeting facilities ready....

Dear GadaboutCSB, Thank you very much for the kind words about your experience here at Rizzo. The water issue was a challenge and I can't thank you enough for your understanding and cooperation as we were forced to relocate the group on the final day. Your patience and support through the emergency were vital in a smooth transition. We hope...

I stayed for a week as part of an executive program. The attention to detail made the trip memorable. Although I was busy, the service helped me focus on my studies. I was so busy I didn't make it out of the area, but that was ok.

Priceline.com gave us an express deal and we were surprised to find ourselves on the school campus. Very nice. Clean. Very professional check in. Comfy bed. Would be nice if coffee was available in the lobby, not on 3rd floor.

Modernistic comfortable and welcoming environment, with old world charming service. Location especially ideal for conferences or business related to UNC. Idyllic surroundings, remarkable even in February. Hotel rooms good bit spread out so even getting to the front desk takes some walking. Food was good in a California way, bar well stocked with multitudes of TV monitors. Limited in-door parking.

this team goes above and beyond in meeting their customer needs to ensure that all doges well during the stay. The facility expansion is impressive. Only complain was late night noise with a group that was onsite for classes - but that was probably due to the location of my room which was right next to a seating area.

We enjoyed our stay here. Our floor pantry was stocked with Ben & Jerry's, Dove Bars. There is parking directly under the hotel (but no signage). You have to use your own bellman carts, but they are available. I found that the hotel floors were hard to navigate but the floors were extremely quiet and the bathrooms were nice.
