This time I had to go to North Carolina for work I stayed in Chapel Hill. This was located very close the airport. Only about a 30 minute ride. For the few days I was there we went to a handful of restaurants & bars including Local 506 & Med Deli. I stayed at the Aloft in Chapel Hill. It seemed to be a newer property and wasn't that busy. The one thing that was difficult about it is that the entrance is around back from the road. Many of the Uber drivers had a difficult time finding where the entrance was. The rooms were spacious and comfortable.
The other plus of the trip was the amazing view of NYC when I was returning.
