Can't beat the location, situated in city center of Durham. The hotel is typical Marriott: larger building, standard rooms, lobby restaurant/bar, etc. Rooms are comfortable and clean. But the high point is the central location. Be sure to ask the staff for recommendations on local dining. They know what you're looking for, and are sure to get you to the... More

I was very impressed with the bar tender he was very cool and must be an asset to the hotel since he has been there 14 years. Would stay there again if I... More

We Thanksgiving'ed in Durham and stayed downtown. Very quiet time given the holiday, but we found staff to be friendly and helpful. Restaurant had an abbreviated breakfast menu most of the week, but the buffet seemed plentiful when it was available. Concierge Lounge was not open all week, so if that's your thing be sure to call ahead to check.... More

Unfortunately we only stayed here for one night for an event... We checked in late and left early too. I wish we had more time to spend at the hotel and downtown Durham. But, from what I gathered during our short stay was a great hotel. The lobby is large and looked nice... We didn't spend any time in it,... More
