Stayed one night here. Woke up covered in bed bug bites. This is absolutely unacceptable. I would suggest staying elsewhere. The location is great but not worth the hassle of dealing with the bed bugs.

Stayed here June 27th. Fire alarm went off around 1:30 a.m. building had to be evacuated. Fire department showed up and cleared the building. Went back to our room and the alarm strobe light was still going off- it would stop for a few seconds then start again telling everyone to leave the building. This went on for about 15-20 minutes.Upon check-out the next morning, we were told we would be contacted regarding some kind of " compensation". We never were. I've contacted the hotel directly twice since with no response. IHG group no help either- just recommend contacting the hotel directly

Husband and I did an overnight here to explore downtown Raleigh. Very convenient location to explore the area!! Room was good, standard, what we expected. The water in the shower and sinks got hot quickly and had good water pressure. Because of COVID there were not a lot of guests...I think we were even the only people on our floor as we didn't hear anyone else use the elevator. At 130am the fire alarm went off and the whole hotel had to evacuate to outside. Every one was very orderly and the staff handed out free water bottles and Gatorade while we waited for the firemen to clear the building. It was just a false alarm, but because the staff didn't panic and was visible, all the guests were patient and polite while we waited outside (about 30 min). They very nicely gave us an extra hour late checkout the next day to catch up on missed sleep. Would stay here again.

I stayed in the hotel for two nights February 3rd and 4th for a business trip. The first morning I noticed a couple of red spots on my body but ignored them and to work spending the entire day going to various meetings in downtown Raleigh. Waking up this morning I had itchy bites across my body and blood spots on the sheets. I called the front desk to inform them at 6:30am and the person in attendance, in response to me saying there we bed bugs in their room said "its not my room", let me know they were going off shift and would leave a note. I packed and called again at 7:30am, that person also seemed nonplussed, and let me know they would leave a note with my number for their manager. I left and went to work, no call or follow up from the hotel. Not sure if they addressed the issue and it didn't seem to alarm or surprise the staff. Apparently it is not concerning enough to warrant a follow up with the affected guest.

Checked in and the two front desk people were very friendly, efficient and informative. The room was spacious and clean. The internet worked well and the desk had plenty of work space. They could use a few more outlets. The bathroom was small, but not any issue.
