Recommended Accommodations near UNC

Document Actions
The Hampton Inn is the official hotel of TriZPUG Boot Camps at UNC-CH. There are several other options, mostly more expensive ones. Because space in Chapel Hill around the university is at a premium, plan to stay at least a couple of miles out and take hotel shuttles, or utilize Chapel Hill's free bus service.
Chapel Hill Free Transit Service
The Chapel Hill Hampton Inn on Hwy 15-501 is 2.87 miles from Phillips Hall. Rides from the Hampton Inn to Phillips Hall will be available each morning of Plone Boot Camp. Joel Burton, your Plone Boot Camp facilitator will be staying here. Cignex, the largest Plone service provider, stays here. Serviceable, no frills, and easy on the wallet. McDonald's, a Chinese buffet, a large sports bar, a shopping center, and the Sheraton are neighbors. On the D and CL bus lines.
The Carolina Inn is the ultimate in convenience. It is one half block from Phillips Hall. The definition of old Southern gentility. Six figure traveling university big wigs stay here. Developers generally don't. But developers have been known to spend Friday evenings in the summer sipping Mint Juleps on the porch here while listening to live bluegrass. Stay here if money is no object.
The Courtyard is 2 miles from Phillips Hall. Brand-spanking new. Next to the UNC System's Friday Center for Continuing Education, a university park and ride location served well by the free local bus service (take the FCX, HU, or S bus line to Fetzer Gym). Small breakfast room, fitness center and indoor pool. The fashionable restaurant and shopping center of Meadowmont is directly across Hwy 54.
The Sienna Hotel is two miles from Phillips Hall, is four star, and is home to the famed Il Palio fine Italian restaurant. Only Michelin star in the Triangle. Great place for a wild wedding party. On a free bus line. On the D, CL, and F bus lines.
The Best Western University Inn is 2 miles from Phillips Hall. It's an ancient place with roadside motel "charm" if that's your thing. At one time the only place to stay in Chapel Hill. Literally. Next door is Aurora, hands down the finest Italian restaurant in the Triangle. A shopping center with a Thai restaurant is less than a half of a mile away. On the HU, S, and V bus lines.
The Days Inn is 2.5 miles from Phillips Hall. Adjacent to a quirky shopping center with very casual restaurants. Across the street from the Holiday Inn. On the F and G bus lines.
The Holiday Inn is across the street from the Days Inn and a shopping center. The hotel is very seventies but full service. Many civic clubs and local conventions meet here. On the F and G bus lines.
The Sheraton Chapel Hill Hotel is three miles from Phillips Hall. The fine dining restaurant and lounge inside were once hot spots, many, many years ago. Same price range as The Carolina Inn. On the D and CL bus lines.
The Red Roof Inn is farthest away at 5 miles from Phillips Hall. The absolute least expensive, this is not all that bad. Stay here when every penny counts. On an interstate interchange across the bridge from a mega-huge shopping and commercialized dining sprawl zone. Short walk to the D bus line.
