A super quiet hotel tucked into a park like setting. Newly renovated rooms are very comfortable and the staff is first rate. Restaurant has a limited but very good menu. Concierge lounge is one of the best for Marriott Gold & Platinum members. Highly recommend when in the Raleigh/Durham area.

Stayed here more than a few times now...the renovated club is better but not superb; very friendly staff. Is it the ritz or jw? Nope, but being so close to the airport; clean; and having decent size rooms it's an easy go to choice for a weeklong trip.

I feel as though I was staying in a different hotel to the other reviews. Old, run down, and sad breakfast offering. At the airport at 11pm, shuttle buses for all the other local hotels were passing by. Called the Marriot, was disconnected twice, then told abruptly that the shuttle does not run after 11pm and I need to take... More

The hotel itself is fine, clean, with grounds which allow for nice walks. What's remarkable is the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. I was traveling with my 4 year old son who loved the room and the staff made sure to tell him to call next time he's in town so he can be sure to have the same... More

This hotel is located near the airport conveniently between Raleigh and Durham right off I-40. Staff was very friendly and professional, from front desk to restaurant and housekeeping. I had no complaints with the property. It was clean and well maintained and in a quiet and safe area. Highly recommended for it's overall appeal and excellent value.

From the front desk to the maintenance man in the elevator, every staff member was friendly and asked how our stay was going. I've stayed in many hotels and I've never experienced staff who take such pride in the hotel and the guest experience. Room was nice. You can tell it has been recently upgraded. Extremely clean. Beds comfortable. Pretty... More

This is a solid hotel - with a very good concierge lounge (breakfast is a bit light). The rooms are old, but nice. The gym has decent equipment - and unlike most Marriott properties, the TV works. The restaurant is decent for dinner as well. I like this place.

In my view, it is tough to get better than this. I visited Durham on business and this property hit the mark in every single respect. Location worked well for my business needs. Plenty of parking. Check in was lighting. Room was high-end Marriott finishes, super clean, and lacking nothing. I needed to check out one day earlier than planned... More

Reached the hotel pretty late at night due to delayed flight. The restaurant had closed but the staff went out of the way to offer me some Hot Coffee on a cold night. The room was clean and efficient, the bed comfortable. The breakfast was good and filling. Over all a nice stay
