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!

The hotel was fine, the room was comfortable and the staff friendly. However, when I left I needed a cab to the airport. Someone at the desk called for me. When I arrived at the airport the cost was $45! The cab to the hotel was only $32.10. I called the Marriot and the person speaking for management just laughed... More

I thought I enjoyed my stay here, until I realized I left my MAC Laptop in the room when I checked out. I called the hotel to ask them if they found it. I know for sure it was in the room. They did look, but simply said they trust their staff and I could file a police report. Someone... More

Stayed in room 219 on Saturday 26.04.2014 and to be honest, not impressed with the size of the room or the poor view to the rear carpark, having paid for a better room.

I have to travel to Durham for work on a quarterly basis. This is our preferred hotel and I know why. The service and rooms are great. Room service is quick and polite. The bath tub has a fixed mat which makes taking a bath unpleasant. Otherwise everyone is friendly. Would recommend.

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.

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
