“Excellent hotel in diversifying downtown”
Reviewed July 25, 2010

We stayed here for a one-night getaway from the kids. The hotel is clean and well-maintained. Typical high-quality Marriott product. Raleigh is not typically known as a happening downtown, but we ate at a nice restaurant, had beers afterward at a fun bar and ended the evening with a walk down a surprisingly vibrant Fayetteville Street. We would highly recommend this Marriott if you visit Raleigh -- one of the best in the city!

Even though I was perturbed by not having my room ready when I checked in at 4:30pm, I'm still giving this hotel a 4 star because the room was so spacious and comfortable. From the bed to the drapery to the great bathroom, it was first class. My biggest gripe is that my room wasn't ready - a king-bed room I confirmed online months in advance. Upon check-in, they offered me a "handicap" room with king, so I said OK. I found that it was right next to the ice machine/vending room, so I told them I need to move. They finally offered me a king room on a lower floor - the 4th where the pool and fitness ctr are, with a view of the ugly concrete roof. But I just shut the curtains and not look out. While the headboard was great because it was equipped with 2 tiny reading lights, one was broken. They didn't provide any bath gel, and there was no bath vent. What is really galling is that this first-class hotel charges for wireless access, as well as use of the business center! Come on now, let's rise up, people! In this day and age, why are these so-called first class hotels still nickeling and diming us??

My husband and I spent fathers day weekend at this hotel and found it to be a great location for a weekend getaway. Walking distance to resturants and a short drive the everything else.

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.
