I was pleasantly surprised with how great The Umstead was. I was not sure what to expect for my first visit to North Carolina. The hotel was a pleasant oasis. It is close to the highway, but managed to feel very secluded. The pool area was beautiful and well-staffed. We appreciated the ice cold water that we were offered, as well as a spritz bottle to keep cool in the sun. The hotel had a very calming feel. There was a harpist playing at night in the lobby / lounge area. Our room was immaculate, nicely appointed with a very large bathroom. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Raleigh / Cary.
