“Great staff, comfortable rooms, perfect location, outstanding value”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Booked a large group for an extended stay of up to 2 months for some. Hotel staff could not be friendlier and more accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with recent upgrades to its style. Huge King bed with lots of pillows was a warm reception to crash on at the end of our long days. The maintenance team was very responsive and the food at the restaurant was very good. A fun bar in the lobby lounge with a superb staff always offered a chance to unwind with a friendly group. Would highly recommend the Doubletree-Brownstone to anyone visiting the city or booking a large group. Overall an outstanding hotel that is well managed.

Older hotel , remolded and updated. Staff was very friendly. Room was clean and very well appointed. I had a hamburger for lunch that was awful, just a large pre made patty . Homemade fries were good. Breakfast was horrible, pancakes and waffle pieces on buffet were cold as was everything else that should be served hot with the exception of some eggs with onions squash tomatoes that had just been replenished. Wait staff was friendly. I had indigestion after both meals. I'd probably stay here again if the rate was much less than my preferred hotels but I'd eat elsewhere.

Room Tip: Not sure one room is better than others. It's an old hotel that used to have outside rooms. Nois...

We stay at the Brownstone Doubletree regularly when we are visiting our daughter at NC State. The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly, it is in walking distance to the State campus and the YMCA, and it is attractively priced for people associated with NC State. Making reservations can be a frustrating experience. All calls to the hotel are routed to a call center in Florida where the service standards are poor.

When we arrived we were greeted by the evening manager to welcome us and given breakfast vouchers. We were in about 10PM and our room was great. The location of the hotel is directly 200 yds from the NC State campus and close to sidewalk cafes.

This was not my best stay at the Doubletree - Brownstone as I typically stay there every time I take or pick my daughter up from school. This trip my shower was dirty the day I checked in and the front desk manager had to clean the it that evening. I also ended up with a big black spider in my closet. Truly not my normal stay at this hotel.

My husband and I stayed at the DoubleTree in Raleigh, NC, while we were in the process of getting our daughter all set up for her first year of college. The service was excellent. The staff was most attentive and friendly. The hotel was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Great experience.

Great business hotel. Not recommended for teens or kids. No pool and rooms couldn't fit a rollaway bed. I thought I was getting a discount because we were touring NCS, but it was no bargain. I think you could find something just a bit further and more family oriented.
