Rekindle the spirit of your alma mater at the smartest place to stay in town. Located right on Franklin Street, Graduate Chapel Hill (formerly the Franklin) is in the heart of downtown and just a short walk from the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. Guest rooms are dressed in shades of Carolina Blue, with touches of Greek Revival and nods to the region’s natural beauty. Discover elements honoring campus icons and notable Tar Heels, including the Old Well, Mia Hamm and His Airness, #23. In the lobby, more classic blues mingle with views of the coast while the Front Desk forever flashes that iconic score from 1982. Stop by Poindexter, our café by day and bar by night, for coffee or a local brew. Our hotel is an ideal venue for your next celebration. With 2,400+ square feet of flexible meeting and event space — both indoors and out — we offer a variety of distinct settings to host groups of up to 175 guests. Prepare to be inspired by our hotel, where little moments of surprise and discovery meet you around each corner and down every corridor. Malin + Goetz amenities, complimentary wi-fi and other little luxuries enhance your stay.
