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. The rooms have been refurbished relatively recently and my two stays there in the last year have been great. I believe the... More

Stayed here for a wedding in Durham. From the moment we arrived the staff was attentive and courteous. Great location with many restaurants and activities within walking distance. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. The valet staff was awesome, even making recommendations for golf for my husband and friends and informative on drive times for our sightseeing adventures.

Staff were polite, greeted us every possible opportunity, and constantly asked if they could do anything to make our stay better and more comfortable. We had a great time. The fitness center was clean, and among the better I've seen in large hotel chains.

I stayed at this hotel in June. Staff throughout was very nice. Fitness center was adequate and served my needs. Both attendants in the Concierge Lounge were exceptionally friendly - I enjoyed speaking with them both! Overall - very good hotel!
