“I wish all hotels were this good”
Reviewed June 30, 2010

I stayed at the City Center in Raleigh for 3 nights and it was wonderful. The room were clean and the beds were like sleeping on a cloud. They had a flat panel TV and all the hookups needed if you wanted to connect your laptop to big screen. The reason I gave it 4 stars was because the wireless was HORRIBLE. It was like going back to 56k modem. Also the room service menu could have been better. The house restaurant has an Italian theme and I not real big on Italian food. But there is a restaurant down the street called "The Big Easy", definitely make it a stop.

Stayed one night to attend a local country music concert. Great hotel location in the central downtown area, brand new property and a beautiful layout/appearance, very friendly staff, and an overall terrific stay. Before you leave town, visit Jimmy John’s across the street for a terrific sandwich. I highly recommend this property!

Check in is quick and efficient. Hotel has an excellent fitness center and swimming pool. Rooms are very clean with a comfortable bed. Best hotel in downtown Raleigh area with dining options nearby. Full service Starbucks in the lobby.

Relatively new hotel and it shows. It is directly connected to the convention center so very convient if you are attending an event there as I was. Concierge lounge could do with a little more variety of food but overall is pretty similiar to other Marriotts.

Room was big and very well setup for a business traveler like me - overall a very pleasant stay for the couple of days I spent there on business - I have no complaints.

We stayed at the Raleigh Marriott recently for the NCSU graduation. The lobby is very attractive and spacious. I recommend the valet as they are quick and you pay one price for in and out priviliges as opposed to the parking garage. We weren't able to use the elite members lounge as we were told this is a convention hotel and the lounge is only open during the weekdays. No big deal. There was a big street fair going on that weekend, so we had to work around it, but we had a nice walk and there were a lot of restaurants nearby. The rooms were clean and well-appointed. The room service came a little late in the day (2 pm), but we were able to stay in our room and leave and tell the front desk that they could come back and clean while we were out. The restaurant at the hotel was good - they have a breakfast buffet and although it's an Italian-themed restaurantm, you can get other types of food. This is the second time we've stayed in this hotel. It was a little more expensive than other hotels in the area, but we'd stay there agian.

Came down to Raleigh for the beer festival. It was located next to the convention center, starbucks, krispy kreme. GREAT location and very close to lots of eateries for one to walk to. I recommend trying Clyde Cooper's BBQ or the Pit BBQ. Consider the Raleigh Rickshaw- it's free and works on tips only.
Anyway, the bed was great and you've got to love bath and body work's toiletries.

My stepmom and I traveled to Raleigh for a conference and stayed at the Marriott. We were greeted upon arrival by smiles and hospitality. Our room was very clean and spacious. The lobby was beautiful and the entire staff was friendly. We loved that the Convention Center was linked to the hotel and we didn't have to go outside in the cold and rain. Everything is within walking distance. Loved this place and I cannot wait to go back next year!!
