If you are going to the Raleigh Convention Center or to Maymandi Concert Hall, this hotel is is a perfect location.
It is a fairly average Marriott--there are many much nicer Marriott hotels in the world, but as would be expected from this brand, the hotel is a safe and decently clean place to stay.
That being said, our room was clean, but a little short on the housekeeping details: the toilet paper roll was almost empty when we checked in (there was a spare roll left by the toilet that we had to change ourselves), the complimentary bottle of water had already been opened, and the already chintzy complimentary in room tea "assortment" of two tea bags had one tea bag missing from the cardboard pouch.
The hotel doesn't have many elevators, and on the weekend that we stayed was full of kids and families attending weddings, beauty pageants and convention center activities. Since the concierge lounge closes at noon on Fridays, there wasn't anywhere in the hotel to get peace and quiet other than in our room.
I would recommend this hotel to people who are attending an event at the convention center or have business downtown. It is definitely not a great place for a romantic getaway, but is a decent and safe hotel.
