From the moment I arrived until the day I left I was greeted by a friendly and helpful staff. There were several large groups at the hotel, but I never felt lost in the shuffle. My room was clean and quite comfortable. The hotel is quite nice (the decor I great) and connected to the city convention center. I have... More

The staff here is remarkably helpful. Two examples. First, on my checkout day I was rushing to leave my suitcase and arrange a taxi so I could get back to my meeting. The bellhop was busy and my frustration must have showed. Somebody stepped out of nowhere to help, took my bag and waited patiently while I fumbled for flight... More

Stayed 3 nights, 4 days for a professional organization conference. Perfectly located downtown Durham, attached to the Durham Convention Center. PROS: Central Durham location. Clean rooms and immaculate bathroom. Mini-fridge and coffee maker in room, hotel staff gladly provided additional coffee packets on request. HVAC worked well and was quiet, unlike some window units that tend to keep me awake.... More

Location: Right in the middle of downtown Durham, within walking distance to plenty of restaurants, bars, and the Durham Bulls Ballpark. Hotel Accommodations: Clean, spacious rooms; open lobby with restaurant and bar; completely connected to the Durham Convention Center.

The hotel is perfectly-located in downtown Durham. It's very convenient if you're staying in the area. The room, starting with the very comfortable bed and the spotless bathroom, was great. The only drawbacks at this hotel are the misleading parking situation and the WiFi (couldn't connect at first then found out you have to pay for it). I researched parking... More

This Marriott may not be the newest, it certainly has the best staff. I've stayed here several time, originally for its location in downtown Durham but came back because of the staff.

We came to see a show at the durham Performing Arts Center and it was a perfect location. As we did not have a car, we walked all over that area and were so impressed on all the renovation of the tobacco warehouses. The staff was extremely genteel and the hotel was clean. Would recommend.

The south is of course renowned for its overly friendly people and exceptional hospitality but the Durham Marriott City Center takes it to a new high point. Every one I ran into was cheery and helpful. From the bellman who greeted me at the door, to the desk clerks, cleaning staff and restaurant staff. It was noticeably exceptional! The room... More

This full Marriott is located in the heart of downtown, easy walking distance from dozens of restaurants, three or four blocks from the Bulls stadium and Durham Performing Arts Center, and is immediately adjacent to the Carolina Theater.
