I'm pretty independent, and I'm sure he doesn't want to follow me around for the day! However, in an email from UNC, I remember them saying that they'd have an info session about apartments and all that, and I would like him to be there for that type of thing. When we move to CH, we'll be focusing on starting our professional lives there, so we need to have info about apartments and around town info.
But, logistically I'm not sure how far hotels are from the school that would make it easy for him to meet me on campus later in the day. I know parking at UNC is crap, and I'm not sure that there are hotels or anything within walking distance. I haven't been to CH in two years so I'm a little fuzzy.
Oh and FYI-- I love eating at Top of the Hill! Everyone should check out that place sometime.
Depends on how much you want to pay for a room. The Carolina Inn is on campus but is $$$$, same with Franklin Hotel, close but $$$. Next closest is the Siena, not convenient walking distance and also $$$. Less expensive but decent lodging is out 15-501 towards the I40 or in Durham.
Parking is not bad on the weekend in spring and there is visitor parking on campus as well as public parking on Franklin St near campus.
