Pros: location, renovated rooms, friendly staff, free covered parking, views, price
Cons: tiny bathroom, no free breakfast
We had never been to Raleigh before and were unsure about what areas to stay in, so we opted for downtown between three breweries and a bar we were planning on hitting that night. The price was good when purchased through Hipmunk - $83 - which was very reasonable. The reviews were extremely mixed about this hotel, but we were delighted.
The location was perfect. We were able to walk to everything we wanted to - which is key when visiting breweries. The parking was great and we were even able to park right outside the elevator - making loading and unloading very easy.
Our room seemed to be renovated - at least the decor was modern and it was very comfortable. The view from our room was really nice looking out over the city. The A/C worked well, the bed was comfortable enough, and the room was clean.
My only issue was that the bathroom was TINY. You couldn't even turn around in them. I mean, really small. Just be aware.
If we ever come through Raleigh again, we will be staying here. It was the nicest place we stayed on our whole 12-day trip.
Ask for a room higher up so you can take advantage of the view
