Stayed here one night while attending a Carolina Hurricanes' game at PNC Arena. The location was great since it was close to the arena and easy to find from the highway. Making the reservations were very easy on their website. Check in was quick and the staff very friendly. The room was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable, firm but not hard. The bed pillows were the perfect size, not those huge overstuffed ones you seem to get most of the time! The room had a view of the roof of the entry lobby but it didn't make much difference to us since we arrived later in the afternoon and were not in the room that long. Biggest complaint I had was concerning the heater - we tried to use the heater and it could not be controlled by the wall unit and kept blasting cool air (not good in November!) off and on as we tried to sleep, so we eventually turned it totally off. Luckily it was not a very cold night so the room temperature was ok. If we had been staying longer that would have been an issue. Also, the room was on the front side of the hotel and you can hear traffic noise from the highway. I would advise using ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. They offer a complementary basic breakfast in the lobby which was good. Overall, its a good deal for the price.
