Hotel in North Carolina Recreates Michael Jordan's Old Dorm Room


A hotel in North Carolina is offering the chance to stay in a room that is a recreation of Michael Jordan's UNC dorm room. Interesting idea!

If you're still feeling nostalgic about Michael Jordan while watching"The Last Dance" (Episodes 9 and 10 begin at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN), there's a new hotel you might want to visit.

Graduate Hotels is opening a Chapel Hill, North Carolina, location this fall, and it will feature a detailed reconstruction of Jordan's University of North Carolina dorm room, as featured in a 1983 Sports Illustrated photo shoot.

"The room is an identical replica," said Graduate Hotels CEO Ben Weprin. "From the ceiling, to the brick wall, to the record player and records, the posters, the pennants -- every single piece in that room, we have it."

The Jordan Suite -- Room No. 23, of course -- isn't just an exhibit to look at. You can actually stay in the room, too.

But there will be lots more to see in the hotel -- including game-worn sneakers from 1983, a $5 check Jordan cashed after winning a game of pool, and last but not least, Jordan's actual student ID card.

Once things get more back to normal, would you stay there?
