There was a major problem getting rooms turned over on our check-in day. Most everyone arriving was asked to wait in the (small) bar/restaurant area or go back out in the snowy cold and come back later. Not a good option for us as we had to change for a function that was a hour after the quoted check-in time....

After traveling from the coast we came upon this really nice structure in a let's-get-gentrified section of Durham. There is construction going on all around the area but it is not an issue with noise or traffic. Walking distance to DAC and some really interesting restaurants and bakeries (Ninth St. Bakery is right across the street). Rooms are nice but...

From arrival to check-out I was greeted with kind words and smiles. Terrific suggestions were provided for local eating establishments and the food eaten in the bar area was also good (make sure to try the house-made Ranch dressing). The bed was comfortable and the room had a coffee maker and refrigerator - both appreciated! I would definitely return to...

Great rooms, great staff and service. Our room was clean and well maintained. The bathroom is a little small and has no exhaust fan but not a deal breaker. The hotel restaurant is part of the lobby and barely screened off and so is the bar. Great fitness center but no pool.

Kevin greeted us warmly when we arrived, several hours early. Got us right in and also told us we got free wifi due to being Marriott Reward members. The room was spotless!

Spent two nights at this hotel during an ice storm that hit Durham in January. Overall a very pleasant experience. One note - two of the three treadmills had no audio to the TVs. As I ask on lots of Marriott properties - Why would you spend $250K on a fitness center and not spend $10/hour 1 hour a day...

We stayed here over Christmas 2013 and found it a lovely and pleasant place to stay in Durham.

Stayed last night, 1/2/15 for an event at the Durham Armory. The Bellman helped us cart our display across the street to the event. The front desk was helpful. The restaurant had a great breakfast. Everything was well done and the facility was immaculate. Thanks for a great experience.

Arrived on Friday and left Monday morning - we were visiting friends in the Mebane area. Great restaurants within walking distance. Valet parking is inexpensive and convenient. WiFi did not work even though we were given a free access code. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Altogether a nice stay.
