    Standing in the heart of Chapel Hill and roughly 32 miles northwest of Raleigh, North Carolina, The Carolina Inn has welcomed guests since 1924 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Crossroads Chapel Hill Restaurant and Bar's decor recalls the early 20th-century South, while staff serves homestyle dishes with a modern twist. Guests say that the inn's Southern hospitality truly shines through the friendly customer service.

    Nature-lovers can rest easy at the Proximity Hotel, as it is one of the greenest hotels in the country. Located about 3 miles northwest of downtown Greensboro, North Carolina, this property was specifically designed to use 40 percent less energy and 30 percent less water than other comparable hotels. But not all guests choose the Proximity for its environmental friendliness. Some love its unique design (especially the "floating" 12-foot steel front desk and the sweeping spiral staircases in the Social Lobby). Others rave about the views from the guest rooms through the massive windows and the tasty food found at Print Works Bistro. Most importantly, visitors praise the Proximity's friendly customer service staff and fairly low room rates.
