Marriott at Research Triangle Park is in a wonderful location right off I40, close to 540, and 5 miles from the airport. It is a full service Marriott with a pool, workout room, restaurant and bar. Our first room had an extremely strong musty smell and the gentleman at the front desk cheerfully changed our room. The smell is the... More

On a college visit to Raleigh / Durham, we got a room here on Priceline and it was great. It was convenient to both the Raleigh center and NC State, but also Duke and UNC. Marriott always has the nicest amenities and the most comfortable beds and great staff. I love staying at Marriotts.

This is an older Marriott property but the lobby and restaurant is very nice and the rooms have been updated. Good location just a couple of exits down from RTP airport and right off of I-40 so it's easy to get around RTP, Durham, and Chapel Hill relatively quickly. Friendly staff and good service.

This was an excellent venue for our recent family reunion. The entire hotel staff was the best that I have ever had the pleasure of being severed by. Our accommodations were very good and served well for our group of about 100 people.
