The Doubletree by Hilton Raleigh Brownstone is in a great location, within walking distance of the NC State campus and the happenings of Hillsborough Street. When approaching the hotel, one might be turned off by the rather dated exterior; but once inside the property, it is easy to see that Hilton has spent a lot of money on the updating of the hotel. The lobby is spectacular and spacious, great for receiving large groups and reception. All rooms have a balcony, which was a nice touch to my top floor king suite. The guest rooms have received adequate updating, with flat screen tvs as well as central air conditioning which made the room very comfortable. The bedding and furniture was up to par with that of other Doubletree properties and made for an excellent night's sleep. The top floor balcony offered a great view of the Raleigh skyline. My only disappointment with the room was the space and age of the bathroom. It is easy to see that the bathroom was the only part of the room that was left untouched by the renovation--it is rather small for a Doubletree property; however, the terry cloth robes in the closet were a great added touch. Overall, a definite return trip for any visit to the NC State area.
