We were in Raleigh visiting friends over Christmas and chose to stay at this hotel. We have stayed at the other hotels in this area and decided to give this one a try.
It was great.
Check-in - Quick and accurate.
Room - Very nice. It was clean, comfortable, and quiet.
Breakfast - Terrific. Very nice dining area.
Location - I really like the location. Right near the mall, but traffic isn't a problem. Centrally located between North Raleigh and Raleigh itself. And right near the beltway for easy access to everywhere else.
Price - Good. Not great, the Fairfield just up the hill was cheaper. But if you're looking for a place to stretch out and not be crowded, you can't go wrong with the Residence Inn.
Would I stay here again? Absolutely. The only reason I might choose to stay somewhere else would be because of location (Marriott in Downtown Raleigh, Renaissance in North Hills, or Hampton in Glenwood South).
