We were visiting Durham to see a show at the Carolina Theatre. You can't beat this hotel's location, it was right next door to the theatre. That was the best part of the hotel. The other positive was the bed was comfortable. The cons: I felt it was overpriced for what we got, the hotel needs updating, parking is not... More

Really no complaints about this hotel, it just didn't "wow" me. It's literally in the middle of downtown durham, so the location is perfect! The dessert in the concierge lounge was pretty good. Room was clean. Staff was as expected, but again, nothing that "over-the-top" impressed me. I was torn between an average and a very good rating, but decided... More

Arrived after a long stress full drive. Friendly greeting from staff and a upgrade to concierge level added to a relaxing night in a very comfy bed. Breakfasr was ample in quiet room made for an overall happy stay.

Very close to everything! Walking distance to many things including Durham Bulls Ballpark. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Ronnie the Concierge went out of his way to assist. He was very knowledgeable of local area and places to eat. He is an asset to the Marriott. Would stay again, no issues!

My check-in was easy, the room was clean and large (it was a corner room), and the bed was comfortable. But the "restaurant" (which was only the bar later in the day) was only mediocre, and frequently it was hard to find someone to wait on you. There was a snowstorm during my stay, and there was only 1 person... More

The hotel is located in the middle of Durham which makes it easy for doing things inside of the city as most things are walking adjacent. This was a quick overnight stay, but the staff was more than hospitable with all requests and with recommendations.
