A great location for downtown centric activities, walking access to all things downtown (plus convention centre). Clean, modern, attractive decor - would recommend for business and vacation travellers.

April 18 to April 20 2014. I am an elite member of the Marriott rewards scheme. We arrived at the hotel after a days travel. So dropped our bags and went out for dinner. On return we crashed, the hotel staff and room were very good. But when we woke in the morning, we saw that their was a large... More

Thank you for your feedback regarding the housekeeping operation at the hotel. Obviously, this is not the standard that we strive for. I have spoken to the housekeeping team regarding the condition of your bedding and used it as a training opportunity. If I may ever be of service in the future please do not hesitate to contact me personally.... More

My family and I stayed here for the inaugural Rock and Roll Raleigh 1/2 marathon. This is a perfect location not even a block from the start and finish lines. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance as well. It's easy to get to most of the attractions from here, and the staff is one of the friendliest I have... More

First the hotel is about 20 minutes from the airport. It's located next to the Convention Center (direct access). Underground Parking is shared with the Convention Center (there is plenty). The other option is Valet Parking. There is a full service Starbucks in the lobby. It has a very nice breakfast buffet. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. We... More

We were there during a huge weekend- inaugural Rock and Roll Raleigh Marathon and Half Marathon. The location was ideal- at the start finish line! The race expo was at the convention center wich is connected to the hotel through an underground tunnel. They opened the Starbucks at 4am so we could all have our coffee early. This hotel meets...

We just spent the weekend in Raleigh for the Rock and Roll Marathon. The Marriott was one of the host hotels. Everyone at the Marriott was so helpful and polite. The location was perfect for the marathon, right at the start and finish. Many restaurants are within walking distance. I was just so impressed with the service and attention to... More

I was there with a friend to run the marathon last weekend. It was a great location close to the start AND finish - and connected to the convention center. We were in a room directly across from the ice/vending but there is a door to the ice room so we did not hear the machine. Room was clean, beds... More

I stay here almost exclusively, as we have an office downtown. I love the location, and I have never had an issue with the service, including food (which is really good by the way). We use their Board room for meetings, and the service is top notch, from the valet, bellman and desk clerks. They didn't have a king sized... More

Stayed this week for the first time at the City Center Raleigh Marriott and would highly recommend this hotel. It looks brand new. Stayed on the Concierge floor and the carpet and decor looked like the hotel just opened. The Concierge Lounge offered some of the best evening hors d'oeuvres I've ever seen at Marriott. The bed was super comfortable... More

I have been traveling all day so I show up to this hotel later than expected due to a flight delay and they gave away my room. It is 1:00 AM and I am still waiting on a cab they promised me. I have to do interviews here tomorrow and give this hole a lot of business. Does not seem... More
