Searching for a Four-Star hotel to have the cleanliness of home, we were immediately disheartened. Upon entering, I knew the four-star rating was incorrect; there were stains on the entry pavement, litter, broken items, dead plants, and even an in-operational door. The elevator doors were faux painted when replacement is necessary, the interior of the elevator was perhaps the perfect... More

Nathan V. Without a doubt this review is the strangest I have ever had to respond to. Elevators perfect for a murder, definitely drug users hanging around, gunshots...six in a row. WOW! First this hotel is located in a very safe part of Raleigh. We are located on the edge on N.C. State University, the largest University in North Carolina.... More

No refrigerator or microwave in the room. No pool (indoor or outdoor). Water drained very slowly in bathroom sink. The nozzle for the bathtub was very loose. The shower curtain was very old. No free breakfast available. However, there is a restaurant on the premises that charges an arm and leg for meals. The meeting rooms and banquet room was... More

Juanita P I'm sorry if you thought we had a pool, not sure why you thought we did. We do have refrigerator and microwave available on request. As for our on site restaurant I think most guest find the prices very reasonable compared to other hotels and other cities. Our Brownstone Breakfast with two eggs, choice of grits or hash... More

I recently stayed for two nights at the DoubleTree Raleigh-Brownstone. I have to say that the front desk and bar staff were excellent. Friendly welcome and answered all of my questions. I travel frequently for business and have stayed in DoubleTree hotels before. I feel this hotel is OK, not bad but not great either. The room was clean and... More

Excellent people working there made this a great experience. I spent a week on business, it was clean and well kept, centrally located, easy access. but the staff made this a great stay. Looking forward to my next trip to Raleigh.

There is no pool. There needs to be a pool. The bathroom vanity is very small and you cannot fit hardly any of your stuff on it. HBO was provided. Great location in Raleigh. A few blocks from NC State and a couple more blocks to Cameron Village (nice outdoor shopping and restaurants).

Had a great stay and located only 1.5 miles from finish line and right on the run course it was very convenient for spectators. They were very accommodating for the athletes and allowed breakfast area use of microwave at 4 am. Rooms were clean and location near restaurants was also nice.

I satyed here for three nights with my daughter. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the buffet breakfast staff were cheerful. The only reason I didn't give it an excellent rating was because of the outside noise. The rooms have balconies and they have sliding glass doors. The outside noise travels right through them...

Slightly below average business hotel and good location. Basic amenities such as location and parking are plus at this hotel. However, for a business hotel this place does not meet the standards. In room Internet is subpar with no ability for premium service. Complementary breakfast for Hilton honors members varies depending on the day of the week and the influx... More

The service was excellent and the check in was great. I was very tired and had a late check in. The staff person had me in and out with a complimentary cookie and bottle water and up to my room pronto.

Considering the price, the hotel didn't really deliver optimal value for money - I had higher expectations in a place with this price bracket. The rooms were large and clean, but the A/C was really noisy, and kept on starting just to run for a few seconds, which seems unnecessary. The housekeeping was a bit inconsistent in quality, as in...
