Writers and artists call this leafy, picturesque hamlet home. But beneath the folksy facade lies a vibrant university town and high-tech industry. Book a stay in our Holiday Inn Express® Chapel Hill hotels and discover why locals call this "the Southern part of heaven."
Be a guest at our hotels in Chapel Hill to tour the historic University of North Carolina campus. Founded in 1795, the university sprawls over a rolling green landscape shaded with oaks. At the heart of the campus is the Old Well, where the UNC football team gathers on game days. Nearby is the 1851 Playmakers' Theater, an elegant Greek Revival building unceremoniously used as a horse stable during the Civil War. Explore the galaxies at Morehead Planetarium, on the campus' east end. Basketball is practically a religion in these parts; when the Carolina Tarheels are playing, the Dean Dome campus arena rumbles. Alongside the UNC campus, Franklin Street has a welcoming, low-rise appeal, with vintage coffee shops and affordable cafes. It doesn't cost a dime to get around town: public buses serving Chapel Hill and the university are free.
From the comfort of our Chapel Hill hotels, you can dine at some of the region's favorite restaurants, many of them reasonably priced for student budgets. A local landmark is Mama Dip's, which has been serving up Southern soul food for more than 30 years. Just off Franklin Street is Cat's Cradle, the legendary rock club that showcased stars like Nirvana and Pearl Jam before they were famous.
Book a stay at our Chapel Hill hotels and get caught up in the energy of university life, whether you're touring the historic campus, attending a big-time ball game or taking advantage of the college's engaging roster of free public events.

Staff is excellent
The staff is fantastic. And the room was clean. Good hotel.[Less]
The manager and her staff were more like family members than the usual hotel staff you sometimes run into. The location was the best suited for the reason for my stay; and how lucky was I to stay[More] here. After the first day/night I was greeted by name (as was my family) and just felt like someone special. This may sound corny but I was sad to say goodbye to them.
I don't normally do survey's but I felt compelled to do so in this instance.[Less]
