We recently returned to Durham to mourn the passing of our 24 yr. old nephew. Jahmed and the rest of the wonderful Marriott staff handled rooms for incoming relatives despite two local schools graduations, finding us beds when none were available knowing only that we had experienced a terrible tragedy. They provided us with food, help with reservations and comforted... More

The folks on the front desk could not have been more helpful and friendly. I hesitated to book here because the Marriott pricing is usually more than I want to spend (especially when considering the extra costs like parking, internet and breakfast) But when I found they were the only possibility if I wanted to walk to the Durham baseball...

From the time I pulled up with my family and was greeted by the assistant manager and valet, to the check in process, to the lobby bar, and every time I walked by the front desk, everyone in this hotel was super friendly and attentive. The room was what I expect in a Marriott, well appointed, clean, and comfortable. Its... More

The Marriott Center City is in a great downtown location next to the Carolina Theater and within a couple blocks (or less) of several top-notch restaurants. It's within a short walk to all downtown has to offer. The staff is incredibly friendly and offer impeccable service from the moment you pull up for valet parking until you leave. They make... More

If you need to be in downtown Durham or are in town to attend a Durham Bulls game, then this is the place to stay. From what I saw, this is the only good hotel located in downtown Durham. Room was great, amenities were good, service was good, and they had valet parking. We were able to walk to the... More

The wife and I attended a concert at the Carolina Theater next door and stayed here overnight. We found nothing outstanding about the hotel, but there weren't any problems either. It was about what you would normally expect from a Marriott. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room itself was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

With a location downtown within walking distance to many restaurants, this Marriott should be ideal. Unfortunately, it is below average and that is a shame. There were no cars in front of me when I pulled in, but I had to wait at least five minutes standing by my car before a valet came out. I should note that parking... More

I stayed here two nights for my college reunion. The hotel itself is fine -- not memorable -- but it provides the basics for a comfortable stay. My room appeared clean, and the bed was comfortable. The TV was in functioning order. The generously sized mini-refrigerator was a nice touch. The bathroom was clean, though somewhat dated (bathtub, in particular).... More

The Durham Marriott Hotel is a clean, efficient hotel in downtown Durham. Not elegant, but not expensive either. Beds are comfortable, coffeemaker and refrigerator in the room, coffee available in the lobby by the elevator in the morning, replaced by strawberry water in the PM. Charge for basic wifi in the room.
