Historic Chapel Hill Accommodations with Southern Charm

Since 1924, The Carolina Inn has served as a comfortable and cheerful hotel for visitors to the campus of UNC Chapel Hill, and a home for returning alumni. Built by prominent alumnus John Sprunt Hill and designed by award-winning architect Arthur C. Nash (who also designed a number of other University landmarks) its mix of early American and English Regency styles creates a unique atmosphere of easy elegance and historic ambiance.

The Carolina Inn has completed its first phase of lodging renovations which has revitalized many of our guestrooms and maintained the historical charm and elegance for which The Carolina Inn is known. Completing this portion of our guestroom renovation has greatly improved the Inn's sustainability and efficiency, and increased guest comfort and amenities. 

If you are staying in one of our newly renovated deluxe guestrooms, you will be pleased to know that these rooms have extra features that further expand our efforts to be a responsible member of the community.
