This hotel is loud. Walls thin and rooms encircle the elevator. People getting off at 2 a.m. speaking in normal voices are completely audible. The bathroom is hilariously small. A large or obese person would struggle to "sit" comfortably. The staff is, to put it nicely, curt. The location is at least 3 miles from the walkable section of Raleigh's... More

The hotel needs a serious remodel and upgrade. I could not believe it was rated a 3 star hotel by priceline. The 20 story hotel had one working elevator and it rattled and swayed as it moved. The bellcarts were old and wobbled. The room I was given was small, had an order and was cramped. They charged 7.00 a... More

I have stayed at this hotel on a few occasions in august and always checkin after midnight. By the time I get to hotel I'm tired but the girl checking me in made it quick and easy. Her and the other clerks I dealt with during my stay were very genuine. A few months back I had to come to... More

Impromptu visit with my adult son set us in the center of historic downtown Raleigh and its manifold museums, restaurants, walking paths and parks. Immaculate room with 2 queen beds part of an Expedia special.

We had a layover at airport and United Airlines put us up at the Holiday Inn. We met the greatest bartender James Soarito and host. He made us yummy drinks with twists and well shaken and served us a delightful meal. James is a great asset to the Holiday Inn.

This was a purely leisure trip and it was wonderful overall. The hotel is right on top of a wonderful Greek Restaurant (see the other review of Taverna Agora). I have stayed here before but it has been a while. It is an older property, but it looks as thought it has received a "facelift" and it didn't smell old.... More

We were in town for a Carolina Hurricanes game and I got a 2 queen bed room for $45 for one night through a Hotels.com special. The room was clean and quiet. I was just at this hotel to save money and sleep and it served its purpose. If this hotel was at its normal price (around $125) I most... More

The hotel is very nice. Its round! The decor is great and so is the restaurant! I didn't like the bathroom though. It was hard to get in and out. It was clean though and the beds were really comfy. I highly recommend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday night, and I knew that this location/property was an older property. For that said, I was a bit disappointed in the room. The room was clean and a bit small, and tight in the bathroom area and there was also "no" small Refrigerator in the room. For today standards every hotel... More
