I chose this hotel because I'm working across the street, so it couldn't be any more convenient. Also, the downtown Durham area has some interesting boutiques and restaurants to explore, so location is excellent, plus they have a shuttle to take you places, but the hotel itself is pretty average compared to other Marriotts. Marriotts are my favorite because they have the awesome concierge lounge for gold and platinum reward members, but this one needs to revamp their concierge lounge. It's super small, which is okay if there's < 10 people up there, but some mornings and evenings it can get pretty packed and you're constanty trying to maneuver out of someone's way. Other than that, the offerings are pretty much the same...I will give them bonus points for serving REAL EGGS in the moring :). Service is also very good...Parking is in an open lot across the street, so it's a little sketch, but then again--it is downtown.
