So this was it...one of our team's last of of town travel tournaments. We've made this trip to the Raleigh/ Durham area for times, and this was--by far--the best trip. This property was very conveniently situated half way between both parks where our games were held. And it was also close to the airport and to all the local universities,... More

Airport is relatively close. En route to southern North Carolina, I stayed here for a night. Good service and room. Check-in was a breeze with good service. Bed was very comfortable and good price on a weekend night.

I was only in Raleigh, NC for 36 hours on business and arrived late at night and left early in the morning. Fortunately, the team at this Marriott property took great care of me and provided me with an upgrade to the 5th floor (where you can enjoy complimentary breakfast, snacks, after-dinner desserts, etc.).

I'm guessing this Marriott's probably on the list for renovation sometime in the next few years. Rooms are a little dated -- they're Marriott v.6.0... the ones with the clear red lamp fixtures and the spotlights over the bed. It works fine, but is starting to look a little old. The staff here tries hard and is quite friendly. The... More

I stayed on the 5th floor with the complimentary Marriott Gold and Platinum reward room. They offered great continental breakfasts, appetizers for dinner, and yummy desserts. The staff in this room were so friendly and sweet. They made my stay that much better. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends.
