As Chapel Hill's premiere residential, shopping, dining and entertainment destination, Southern Village is the ideal location for Chapel Hill's first hotel south of downtown. This summer construction will begin on an upscale 110-room Hyatt Place Hotel. The hotel will be located on US 15-501, between the Market Street and Arlen Park Drive entrances to Southern Village.
The Hyatt Place's front will face the highway and the rear of the hotel will face the Southern Village Apartments district. An attractive stairway to Barksdale Drive will make it easy for hotel guests to walk to the Village Center for dining, shopping and movies.
Southern Village was conceived around three guiding principles: design, density and destination. These founding ideals account for the neighborhood's charming small-town feel, with its emphasis on walkability, green spaces, pedestrian-friendly architecture, community and convenience. The hotel will build on these traditions in both form and spirit.
