Such an unexpected gem. From the beautiful room to the great staff to the free goodies in the pantry. We only stayed 1 night but that 1 night made an impression on me. Great job 👍!!

Why stay at any ole hotel when you can stay at the Rizzo Center. The rooms are beautiful and breakfast is included. The staff is excellent and make you feel like family. The facility had great business work rooms and a pantry with coffee, tea, soda, popcorn, ice cream, juices and more to keep you going.

What a delightful find! We've never been to Chapel Hill but we stopped for the night on our way back from D.C. We booked the Rizzo Center on hotwire because we got a great last minute deal. We are now planning on coming back for another longer trip. We want to be able to explore the beautiful grounds more and check out some of what the area has to offer.

This place was incredible! Everything was perfect from top to bottom. Cleanly, the decor was appealing and calming. I love the shampoo and conditioner and such.. Luxurious! One of the coolest things was the complimentary ice-cream, popcorn and drinks! My husband and I got some popcorn, ice-cream and a drink and watched a movie in our spacious, cozy, comfortable room. Will recommend the Rizzo with enthusiasm for sure! Definitely will be back when in town again. Thank you 🙏

I enjoyed the Rizzo Center. I just wish we had more time. The Southern charm is very apparent at this hotel. From the young man at the front desk who did a great job checking us in and making suggestions about various restaurants to the servers in the dining hall who were very attentive during the complimentary full breakfast. The rooms are ENORMOUS. I cannot recall the last time I stayed at a hotel with this much space. It seems this location was renovated about four years ago with a very cozy, modern, and well thought out floor plan. The decor reminded me of a very upscale home featured in ""Southern Living" magazine. There is also a common area available on every floor and every wing for guess use which includes a kitchen, a bar, and a laundry room with full size washer and dryer. They even have snacks in the kitchen. Enjoy! 😊😎

An excellent place to lay your head for a spell..or more. Totally blown away by the complimentary breakfast! Not fancy mind you! But it had enough food items to satisfy my early morning cravings. The hotel room was nice and clean as well I’d definitely go back!

Only problem with this location is the parking is confusing. There are building names “halls”. And there is no such one called “Rizzo Center.” So if u made the mistake I made, you park half a mile away from hotel which has very convenient underground parking! I think all these honorary names are nice and all but make it easy. Especially when you’re attending a meeting and don’t have anything more specific. Would have been nice to not be so vague in their signage. Not the easiest place to find based on the people who set this up. I would think Rizzo center could have understood this and made sure whomever was scheduling to provide a room number and a building name!

Great staff. The food and hospitality is off the charts. This place brings out the best of those interested in becoming thought leaders. You're able to step away from the office and feel more integrated within the rich learning environment. The amenities keep your mind focused.

What I do know about Rizzo Center would only fill a thimble. But it is well worth talking about. This facility has a Five Star rating. And is well deserved. The staff, from the front desk to the banquet waiters, the Kitchen staff, and the managers, all go the extra mile to bring that special experience to each and every guest that enters the Rizzo Center. I know this because I have worked there.

I absolutely love the free breakfast, free laundry detergent for the free washing machines and dryers, and the thermostat inside of the room. The gym is decent. Again, the breakfast was great. Fried eggs, harsh browns, oatmeal, fruit, bacon, sausage, breads, grits, and more. The eating area looks great. The workers are extremely nice.

Best"unknown" hotel in rdu. Great buffet breakfast and top perks that are usually not discussed. I won't either. Usually good pricing if there's not an event going on.

Really nice hotel. The rooms are reasonably sized. The beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were modern. To top it off, they had free breakfast that was pretty good and "pantries" filled with soft drinks and ice cream desserts as well as coffee and popcorn. They had business school offices and facilities on site and lots of other space that I did not explore. There was also a shuttle bus to take you to campus so you don't have to worry about parking.

UPDATE- as a frequent visitor at the Rizzo, I’ve gotten to know the afternoon/evening front desk staff pretty well. I needed to book a couple extra rooms for my November trip so I mentioned it to Roderic and he asked me to come back later to book them. I totally forgot about stopping by and came back to a message in my room from him saying he had booked my rooms for me! I needed to make some adjustments to the reservation, and Dawud and May easily made that happen to accommodate my needs and get the cheapest rate. THIS is AWESOME customer service that I’ve never experienced anywhere else! THANK YOU Rizzo Staff!!! ———————————I love the lounge staff- specifically Eric and Tanya. They provide top notch customer service despite a packed bar. I’ve had other bartenders at the Rizzo who didn’t even come close to the quality of service they provide. Each visit, they make us feel like family. They not only remember your drink for the night, but they remember you as an individual. Its evident that they work together as a team to provide outstanding service. Thank you guys!

Truly a luxury experience. Bath products were very nice and high class. Tall ceilings, very quiet and classic traditional style with beautiful updates. Staff were very friendly and there were complimentary drinks and snacks for late at night. Will always come if I’m in the area! Also in a beautiful neighborhood!!

This was THE place for a quick quiet day. The grounds are NC gorgeous and the business / conference environment provided the low noise I needed. Big opening windows, coffee maker and fridge... now I dream of coming for a lengthy stay with a conference!

Exceeds ExpectationsRoom was spacious, comfortable and clean. Very quiet. Staff are professional and friendly; Ali at the front desk was excellent. Grounds are beautiful. This is the best hotel environment in Chapel Hill at a reasonable price.

Such a beautiful hotel! Had my parents stay here for their anniversary and they loved it. There’s a complimentary pantry on each floor which has a microwave, ice cream, popcorn and coffee/tea. They do have a restaurant that is open for breakfast and a bar.

Wonderful place. Clean rooms, the staff was friendly, and accommodating. The only down sides are that it's a little hard to get to, you have to weave through side streets well off the beaten path, and the front desk is a trek from the parking area...which is out back. The room was comfortable and most rooms have some sort of view...all views are nice, ours was overlooking the pool area. Plus, they offer complimentary full breakfast in the morning, and complimentary ice cream snacks and soda throughout the day.

Couldn’t stay at a nicer place! This place is top notch! It’s absolutely beautiful, clean and the extra amenities make it all worth the $$. Love the rooms, atmosphere and you don’t have the maids knocking down the door every am. Definitely recommend this place to anyone who is traveling through, visiting the kids that are attending UNC or just a nice weekend getaway with a partner to kick back, relax and feel like royalty.

Ali at the front desk went above and beyond to ensure our stay was as wonderful as last time. Roy is so helpful and friendly - he is always working hard but ready to lend a hand. The pool was clean and the Rizzo center grounds and property immaculately maintained. Thank you for a lovely stay.

The Rizzo Center exceeded my expectations with customer service and the cleanliness of the facilities as a whole. The staff in the Lounge were phenomenal and the overall feel was that it was a home away from home. Thank you!

This was our first visit to the Rizzo Center Hyatt hotel and we are very impressed. The grounds and buildings are beautifully kept. The hotel part is very nice. The room feels like you are in a wonderful hotel. It's nice, well furnished and the bathroom is great. They have a hospitality room on every floor with sodas, juices, coffee, tea, popcorn as well as a large assortment of ice cream. Check in was great, we were done in just a couple of minutes. The staff is friendly, helpful and seem to really enjoy working at the Rizzo. We will definitely stay here again if Chapel Hill is on our way.

Beautiful place. Complimentary popcorn, ice cream, coffee, and other drinks was definitely a hit with the kids. The breakfast was phenomenal. Didn't get to the pool but it looked amazing. We did get to walk around the Dubose mansion and the gardens and these are a good relaxing thing to do after a long drive (we drove 10 hours that day). Check in was clearly labeled but definitely advise stopping there friar and then going to parking lot and taking luggage up to your room. Only bad thing was that I am a huge Duke fan and this was sadly part of UNC. Definitely will be back though since we come down yearly for vacation.

This hotel is fantastic. Booked a room here last minute for a baseball tournament. Rooms are very nice, resort style pool, basketball court for kids, huge gym, pantry with free snacks and sodas. Will be back. Isaiah at the front desk went over the top to help us out. Will stay here again.

Amazing quality for a 4 star hotel. Quite honestly, it should be rated a 5 star. Impeccable room, grounds, lounge areas. Free shuttle service to Chapel Hill restaurants. Can I say anymore? Oh yes the complimentary ice cream, popcorn and drinks, Olympic size crystal clean salt water pool, bar that includes pool tables, food, drinks that over look the pool AND INCREDIBLE complimentary breakfast. I wish I could give more stars! This is by far the best hotel I have been to in a long time! Bravo, Rizzoli of Chapel Hill!!!

The room was great but the TV did not work when we got there and by the time we noticed it, it was too late to get help. The room was difficult to monitor for temperature and we were also cold the first night. And, sadly, they used to have a wonderful breakfast but that is no longer true. Everything at the buffet was stone cold. The lids to the containers were all open and so all of the food was cold and very unappetizing. Love the bar, the people, and the ambience. Wish they could go back to the great breakfast of years passed!
