A Tuscan Villa in Chapel Hill


Inspired by a Tuscan honeymoon, the Sienna Hotel, fashioned as a 79-room Italianate villa – the winner of Autograph’s hotel of the year award in 2015 – brings a little Chianti country panache to Chapel Hill.

This 79-room boutique exudes Italian enchantment, with marble floors, soothing colors, and modern décor with a splash of old world charm. It’s the perfect venue for retreats, weddings, and romantic getaways, with rooms and suites boasting Juliet balconies and large marble bathrooms. Like its namesake festival, Il Palio restaurant brings people together in celebration. Here guests find Italian flavors (think extra virgin olive oil from Umbria and pastas from Gragnano) mixed with local farmers’ produce to create dishes that excite the senses.
