Europe in our soul…and Carolina on our mind! This new AC Hotel in downtown Chapel Hill NC transforms Southern hospitality, melding contemporary architecture with local art, including a community mural. Guestrooms are an oasis of modern design, with sleek furnishings, classic hardwoods and the amenities that matter most – think free WiFi; charging ports; wide-screen TVs; individual climate control; and the best bed you’ll sleep in besides your own. A 24-hour fitness center means you don’t have to leave your exercise routine at home. Hang out in the AC Lounge – all the locals do! – for small plates and specialty cocktails mixed with local spirits from Chapel Hill’s own Top of the Hill Distillery; our patio moves easy Carolina evenings from sweet tea on the front porch to G&Ts around the outdoor fireplace. This beautiful new hotel near the University of North Carolina is walkable to everywhere (there’s a free shuttle, too), fostering sustainability along with urban style.
