The Carolina Inn has sat on the doorsteps of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill’s campus; serving as the central meeting spot for students, academics, faculty, local townspeople and visitors, since it opened in 1924. Though the structure itself has evolved since John Sprunt Hill first built the Inn, its luxury has remained constant.
The Carolina Inn pioneered what’s now known as the Southern Colonial style; a mixture of Georgian, Neoclassical and European influences. The original façade of the building was modeled after the front of Mount Vernon facing the Potomac River; and the entire structure embraces the feel of a plantation-style mansion. An extensive collection of antiques, along with a few items original to the Inn, complements the casually elegant décor.
Extensive renovation has restored much of the Inn’s traditional warmth and grandeur; while adding modern features and conveniences necessary for a building next to one of the country’s best universities. And today The Carolina Inn has 185 guestrooms and suites, a Four-Diamond and Four-Star restaurant, over 14,000 sq feet of unique event space, elegant ballrooms and meticulously landscaped courtyards.
