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.

A little hidden away, but a nice hotel. Standard Marriott, but with fabulous staff and a good lounge. Ideally placed for Research Triangle Park - though as TripAdvisor doesn't know about this city -offering me all sorts of options including Yosemite when I searched for it!
