Had a very nice visit with the Durham Sheraton Imperial. I was there on business and the folks who took care of me during my stay were incredibly warm and friendly. Looking forward to traveling there again. The only comment I have is that the rooms are a bit dated and worn. But the bed was very comfy - which...

Attending a convention at this location for the 5th year in a row. I can only provide very positive reviews while wondering why quite a few others have provided less favorable comments. Maybe it is because the prices are a little high. It is a great location. If you are using this location before or after traveling out of Raleigh...

I feel a little guilty writing this review as I'm wasting my time, my phone battery and YOUR time reading it. I have NOTHING good or bad to say. As others have said, it's a little old, needs a refresh, but provided quiet comfortable sleep, in a comfy bed. Everything else was so so ....

The only reason this hotel exists is because of its location. They staff if discourteous to the point of being rude and it makes me wonder what sort of training do the employees go through? The hotel smells old and the carpets are dirty. The room was Ok Food from room service was horrible. I moved out to another hotel...

This place is in need of a serious renovation. The service is attentive and the rooms are comfortable but it's really rundown. I went for a business trip and the company that brought me in apologized in advance for putting me up there and said it was their last choice. So I expected a lot worse when I arrived but...

Given the age of this property (guessing over 25 years old), it is very well kept. I have stayed in newer hotels that were more run down. The rooms are very large and include a nice sized mini-fridge. The beds are very luxurious. I could have stayed in it all day. One touch that I like to point out (because...

Overall, the hotel was a nice place, but my trip was ruined because of a faulty wake-up call. I asked for one at 7:45am, but somehow it was set twice, so it woke me up at 2am as well. I had a lot of trouble falling asleep after that, so it pretty much ruined my stay. I told the front...

This is a beautiful, modern hotel. From check-in to check-out, the staff is great. The rooms are clean and the beds and linens are great. This hotel is also reasonably priced. Great location too! I stay here each year for a business trip, and have never had one thing to complain about.

This hotel is in good condition, clean and service is good. The location is out of town and despite this annoyingly the windows didn't open. The building is very concrete and inside is a bit soulless but it does the job for a business trip. Breakfast was ok, dinner a bit average.
