The Doubletree By Hilton Raleigh Brownstone University

A friend and I will be staying at the Doubletree By Hilton Raleigh Brownstone University on Hillsborough in May and are planning on going downtown to have some drinks at night. How do you think we should plan on getting downtown? I understand our hotel is kind of in a more residential area and is about a mile or two from the bars downtown. What is the cab situation like? Is it easy to find a cab and how much should we expect to pay each way for a mile or a mile and a half trip? Also, if we decide we want to walk it one way, does Hillsborough have sidewalks or would it be a dangerous walk on the shoulder of the road? Thanks!

It is not that far and there are sidewalks. See my other response to your beer question. Boylan brewpub is closest to your hotel. Could be considered walkable. or the hotel can get you a cab. And you can take a can or pedicab home....it's that close to Diwntown.

But you also have one of the most classic bars in raleigh, Players Retreat ( the PR), across the street from your hotel.
