Europe in our soul…and Carolina on our mind! This new AC Hotel in downtown Chapel Hill NC transforms Southern hospitality with a touch of cosmopolitan flair, 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; private label toiletries; 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 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 firepit. This beautiful new hotel near the University of North Carolina is walkable to everywhere, fostering sustainability along with urban style.
