About the Rizzo Conference Center

Loudermilk Hall at UNC

The Rizzo Conference Center is a sophisticated Chapel Hill, North Carolina hotel and meeting destination ideally situated near the UNC Chapel Hill campus, Research Triangle Park (RTP) and the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

Secluded on 28 acres of lush wooded landscape, the environment and architecture of the conference center and Chapel Hill area hotel inspires creative thinking and encourages fresh perspectives.

The focal point of North Carolina's Rizzo Conference Center is the DuBose House, a grand Georgian Revival-style home, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Surrounded by landscaped gardens, this is a gracious central gathering place for dining, socializing and relaxing.

Designed to complement the architecture of the historic DuBose House, the Rizzo Conference Center's contemporary buildings are exceptionally well-equipped for meetings and accommodations.  Loudermilk Hall's conference rooms feature comfortable ergonomic furnishings and the latest presentation and instructional technologies including high speed Internet and Wi-Fi capabilities. All meeting space meets the standards of the International Association of Conference Centers.   

McLean Hall's executive-style guest rooms create a private haven, and the DuBose House offers an elegant suite and three luxury guest rooms.  For recreation, the sports bar and fitness center are popular choices at this hotel in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
