When I checked in the front desk staff didn't bother to tell me that the entire hotel HVAC system was down. The lobby was hot. The elevator lobbies even hotter, and so was the room. The front desk staff also didn't bother to tell me that they were not giving me the king room I reserved. Instead they checked me... More

My husband and I stayed here recently and I wasn't impressed. The staff was nice and friendly and the rooms were nicely furnished. I thought the bed was comfortable but the sheets were stiff and kind of itchy. Our room was near the ice machine which was a little noisy but ok. My biggest complaint is the air conditioning situation.... More

Stayed with the folks at the Sheraton Imperial Sunday through Friday.....check in was perfect, front desk staff was accommodating and amazing. The SPG (rewards) acknowledgement was constant throughout my stay. I can not say enough about housekeeping, the daily breakfasts, and the parking. (Shuttle service was offered daily, the hotel is located with a half mile of some great restaurants).

I stayed 2 nights at the Sheraton for a business trip. We also held meetings in the hotel during the entire stay. Check-in was very nice, the gentleman at the reception desk; like everyone at the hotel, was extremely pleasant, genuine and nice. My room was rather bland, very brown and dark. Brown carpet, brown wall paper, brown curtains, dark... More

The hotel is located outside of downtown Durham and is about 10 miles from the RDU airport. We drove from our home in Maryland and arrived mid-afternoon on a Thursday. Prior to arriving,... More

I stayed here while on a business trip and it was a very nice hotel. The breakfast buffet was good with custom omelette station! I had dinner there as well and the Salmon was awesome! The pool looked very inviting and I will check it out in a few weeks when I return for another training!

Stayed one night recently on a business trip. Hotel is clean and bright. Lobby is spacious and has usually sheraton amenities. Staff was very friendly and accomodative. There is also an executive club. Mattress and bed quality was very high (Sheraton Sweet Sleeper) Easy access to major roads.

A hidden gem! Very comfortable with all the amenities - a comfortable room, a good meal to be had, a pool, and a kind and accommodating staff. They have walking trails and an herb garden, created and developed by the staff! I would definitely recommend this hotel for the value, quality of service, convenience, and location.

Stayed here twice in July. Staff was excellent, accommodations were as expected from a Sheraton property, restaurant on site (Seasons) was excellent (Rasam did a great job), Crab Cakes were the best I have had in some time. Would definitely stay here again.
