Original style welcomes design aficionados at this appealing boutique hotel.
In a terrific downtown Chapel Hill location, The Franklin takes its energy from the lively vibe of Franklin Street, right outside its front door. A personal “host” reaches out to each guest prior to check-in to provide a point of contact and customize stays according to tastes and preferences. As for the moment guests arrive, they know instantly that they are someplace special.
Stylishly appointed guest rooms and suites are done in handsome style, with an emphasis on luxury details such as parquet, velour and 1,000-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens. Among the notable room features are private balconies, Keurig coffee makers, fridges with freezers and organic bath amenities. The hotel's sunny atrium/lobby stocks board games for guest use, and modern fitness facilities accommodate workouts round the clock.
For casual meals and quiet drinks, Roberts Lounge serves traditional American fare, while Windows offers hearty, cooked-to-order breakfasts. Four meeting and event spaces have an eclectic sense of style, adding an individualized spirit to both business and social gatherings.
