This hotel is way overpriced...when my husband visited with Manager about daily rate, ($289.00 + 36.85 in taxes for a total of $325.85) ...he said that it was because it was the only big hotel downtown and they could charge that rate - a guest two doors from us was paying $96.00 + tax and we actually saw his invoice...

Marriott City Center is very well located in downtown Raleigh. Has a Starbucks inside and several restaurants around. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The Posta Bar & Restaurant is also very good for happy hours or a dinner. I recommend trying the Arancine antipasti, fried risotto balls with mozzarella, salami and pomodoro sauce. Delicious!

This is one of the finest hotels I have stayed in in a very long time. My wife and I traveled to Raleigh from Evansville, IN for the wedding of a friends son. We stayed at the Marriott because it was recommended as being close to lots of attractions. This hotel is staffed by one of the most first class... More

This is a totally average Marriott. Staff is lovely and helpful. Lobby is really nice. Location is convenient. Rooms were ok - clean enough but not super clean. Sheets had holes in them from wear. I would stay again but it's pretty average.

This Marriott is located in the center of downtown Raleigh. It is within walking distance of many government buildings. Excellent restaurants are also within walking distance. However, the hotel restaurant is also very good with a wide range of selections and prices. Each of the staff goes out of the way to make your visit pleasant. I had an error... More

I stayed at the Marriott City Center in Raleigh, NC for 4 nights. Very nice hotel!! Hotel staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The only downside was when my party arrived, there was only one bellhop working, but we were able to get the luggage cart, unload the car, and take the luggage to our room. I... More

I stayed for 3 nights at the new Marriott in downtown Raleigh in June and had a great experience. Having stayed at RTP outside of Raleigh for years, this location was perfect with so many great places to eat, a new "safe" downtown area to walk around and shop, even at night, and a great location to many venues.

I spent a couple of days here this past weekend for a conference. The hotel was awesome because they were able to handle an overwhelming number of females without major glitches. The first day housekeeping was extremely slow so we simply asked her to freshen up the bathroom when she finally arrived. The restaurant on site was not prepared for... More

I spent a couple of days here, while participating to a conference at the Convention Center. The hotel is in downtown Raleigh and connected to the Convention Center. Although this might sound like a plus side of the hotel (and this is why we booked it), you're not necessarily closer to the Center. For example, you have the same walking... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback. All of your statements are correct. The hotel does have complimentary WIFI in the lobby for all guests use. Parking is owned and operated by the City of Raleigh and not under the control of the hotel. Typically, all full service Marriott hotels charge for breakfast. We regret that you were... More

This is in a great location. Find out when downtown Raleigh will have events. Like 4th of July. You will be right in the middle of everything. So many bars and places to eat. If you bring the family you can walk to parks and family fun.
