Great hotel 5/25/2008

I usually don't stay at hotels this fancy. But for a special occassion (which was this case), it was definitely worth spending extra money. And compared to other hotels in this class, it's actually not too expensive. Everything about the hotel was great. Il Palio is a great restaurant. The employees were great. If you are willing to spend this amount of money on a hotel, I suggest making reservations at Siena. Pros: Great hotel Cons: Pillows a little uncomfy more

Fun place to stay, great Jazz on Fridays 2/17/2007

Fun place to stay, great Jazz on Fridays and a wonderful wine list. The room room we stayed in was newly renovated and had a great bed. The staff made us feel very welcome. Pros: Service, Music, Food more

The Siena Hotel is the best! 1/12/2007

Great Hotel! The Service is amazing; the rooms are very spacious, and well appointed. We celebrated my wife's 40th birthday this past weekend, she mentioned, this made up for all the birthdays I had not come through. So I am finally out of the dog house. We started the weekend with an in room massage and then had a private dinner service in our room with our own waiter for the evening with an in-room table side prepared dessert, WOW! I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. Pros: Personalized Service Cons: nothing more

I was truly in Italy :) 11/20/2005

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Siena Hotel numerous times for both business and pleasure. The service is always gracious, attentive and consistant. There is nothing nicer than entering a hotel that remembers your name and knows your prferences. Dining in the Il Palio restaurant is always an experience, the creative italian fare is fantastic, and food is one of my passions. Close to UNC, Duke and RTP, I am always minutes away from my clients. This hotel makes you feel as though you are in Tuscany at a private villa, complete with italian antiques and hand carved furniture. This is by far one of my favorite hotels in the United States. Pros: Ambiance, Service, Food more

A comment for the last comment 6/9/2005

I want to clarify a few things mentioned: The lobby is ""small"" and intimate. The Siena is a European Boutique Hotel which exactly describes what it is! The furnishings are unique. The fabrics are typical of classic Italian decor. The larger rooms are called ""STUDIO SUITES"" which means one large room with a sitting area. No, there's no pool or gym onsite, but guests have access to one down the road. The restaurant is perfect for a romantic evening or business lunch. The lobby and restaurant are non smoking. The service is very classy and you're always warmly welcomed. If a pool and jacuzzi are the most important aspects of a hotel for you, then stay elsewhere. Otherwise, if cleanliness, hospitality, great service, food, and a quiet place to stay is important- then this is the place for you! Great to go for a celebration too! Pros: location, food, service Cons: no gym, no pool more

Disappointing 4/26/2004

My husband and I recently stayed at the Siena and, after reading the reviews, were disappointed. Yes - the lobby floors are marble but so are the floors of many hotels. The lobby is rather small and the furniture is interesting but a concoction of mismatched fabrics. It was pleasant but far from spectacular. The suite that we stayed in was not, in fact, a suite - it was one large room with a small couch and 2 chairs. The furniture fabric was rather dowdy and the room, although big, was a bit dark. The ceilings are those stippled, 1960's things. I think it's time for a renovation. more

a flame broiled whopper 8/25/2002

Remember the commercial from what's his name, the english chap who toured houses of the rich and famous? Count on feeling like one of those wealthy, prestigious folk when you stay at the Siena Hotel. My wife and I stayed there about a month ago for an anniversary, and we were treated with the respect and politeness one of the ""well to do"" expects. It was a wonderful trip... now, all they need is a swimming pool/spa as the coup d'grac. Congrats Siena on a fine hotel! Pros: luxury, space, treatment Cons: public jacuzzi more

Clearly the best! 8/23/2002

What else can describe this classy hotel? By far the most eloquent hotel in the Tiangle. A great thank you to the staff at the Siena for making my stay as memorable as it was. more

The Best 8/23/2002

I stayed here and it was awesome. The food was great. The service was superb. more

Little Italy 8/21/2002

We stayed here a few years ago. The food in Il Palio and the rooms were very luxurious! I would highly recommend this hotel. The hotel provided transportation locally in Chapel Hill. The driver was very friendly and proficient. There are not enough superlatives to describe our experience at the Siena Hotel. more

A Fine Hotel 8/1/2002

I can't imagine that anyone one would have anything bad to say about this hotel. The rooms are more spacious than any chain hotel I've ever stayed in and the staff is completely dedicated in making sure each guest is treated to 4 diamond service. I love staying in this hotel and would never stay anywhere else when I'm in the area. Keep up the good work. more

Eat and drink here but stay elsewhere... 6/4/2002

The restaurant and bar are enjoyable- much better than one typically encounters in a hotel outside of Las Vegas- but whoa...stop at the elevator. I've stayed here twice and both times I was given accomodations which were much smaller than the typical chain motel room. In fact, they were smaller than my college dorm rooms and very spartan in terms of appointments. The rates do not justify the size or the quality of the rooms and service, while generally pleasant, didn't compensate for lack of other amenities. Way overrated...someone should really offer some high-end alternatives within the city limits. Now I just stay outside of town. There are far better alternatives among the various inns and clubs. Pros: location Cons: room size, room quality more
