Once a working plantation, then a country estate, the setting for The IHRSA Institute now includes a modern hotel and state-of-the-art conference center on a 30-acre hilltop just minutes from the main campus of The University of North Carolina and Chapel Hill's quaint yet vibrant downtown.

Spectacular Facility with Five-Star Service



The registration fee to attend The IHRSA Institute includes single occupancy for three night’s lodging (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) and meals as noted in the schedule. Additional amenities include fitness facilities, a pool complex with outdoor lounge areas, a UNC-themed sports bar, guest pantries stocked with beverages and snacks, laundry rooms, and top-of-the-line technology offerings.

Double occupancy rates are available.



If you would like to stay additional nights, or bring a guest, the following costs will apply:

  • $210.00 per additional night, per person, including breakfast, plus applicable taxes.
  • $70.00 additional fee per night for double occupancy (spouse or guest, non-Institute attendee), including breakfast for the second room occupant, plus applicable taxes.


Beginning in April, IHRSA will contact all registrants to determine arrival and departure dates, discuss special requests, and secure a credit card to guarantee reservations. The credit card information will be provided to the Rizzo Center for any additional fees and for onsite incidentals.
