This hotel property is modern, clean, and has a good vibe. Service was good in all areas except room service which was average. Having a Starbucks connected to the lobby is a huge bonus. Valet parking at $30 a night is unreasonable given that self parking is not so obvious. The food at the hotel is very average....not bad but...

We've stayed here before, we weren't sure if we should stay again. When we got here this time they were overbooked for the same suite we literally booked for. It wasn't like booking for a double\king. We booked for an executive suite just so we could have literally one king bed together to cuddle before hubby deployed. At check in...

The hotel is in the centre of the downtown with walking access to the area to very convenient. It was a large and sophisticated vibe with a bustling lobby and a very cool bar and seating area and a very hip feel. The room was clean, attractive, and well maintained. Service was friendly and competent. A good choice for a...

I was rather surprised by my recent visit to Raleigh. I stayed at the Marriott hoping for better than a Days Inn, no it wasn't that bad but when you compare the price of the two, I think you get better bang for the buck at Days Inn. I arrived for a conference so shared a room with a co-worker....

The Raleigh Marriott was great. The staff is helpful and professional. The Bar and Restaurant are well run and the food and drink was very good. The lobby is beautiful. The room was clean and comfortable, although the bathroom was a little "tired" looking and due for an update/refresher. Was very happy with our stay and will be staying again...

Staying overnight for a cheer competition we were so pleased to find out that access to the Convention Center was simply through a door in the hotel lobby. VERY CONVENIENT!! Staff was courteous. Very clean facilities.

I go to Raleigh 3-4 times a year and have stayed at multiple hotels in the past.. I have over time turned completely to the Marriott for my visits... they consistently deliver good service. The hotel is well positioned to walk to many restaurants. Comfy rooms but I really comfy beds.. I sleep well in the beds :-)

Easy to find off the highway in a good downtown location. Note: you can park on the street for free after 5pm - but must get your car before 8:00 am. Otherwise they offer valet or self parking at this property. The lobby is very LOUD due to the high ceilings and marble floors. Therefore, when a lot of people...

We had our wedding in North Carolina. We had a great experience hosting our Rehearsal Dinner at Rye Southern Bar & Kitchen in the hotel. We even were able to meet with guests coming into town early for a bit at the bar afterwards. The staff was very accommodating to our guests and the hotel was very clean and still...

Stayed here for 3 nights for a vball tournament that was at CC next door. Check in - perfect. Quality of room and sleep was very good. The only frustrating thing was that we were out of the room from 8am until 2pm and the room was not touched. Crew came through between 3and 5 while we were resting/showering so...
