"I stayed at this hotel last summer when I was visiting Raleigh for a weekend-long event at the city’s convention center across the street. I had an overall pleasant stay and here’s my full review/analysis of the property. Check-in/Lobby Area: As per usual for me luckily, check-in went very smoothly. The staff member who checked me in was very professional and extremely nice. He even gave me a paper highlighting certain things about the city of Raleigh which I appreciated. As for the rest of the lobby it was very beautiful. Lots of room which was good considering the event I was attending had a lot of people staying at this hotel and many of them were able to comfortably mingle in the lobby without problems. The lobby also features a restaurant/bar and a Starbucks. The Room: My room was on the 4th floor of the building (not on the top floor for once!!!). The room was very clean and well maintained. I only have a few complaints about the room overall and some on them can be seen as minor complaints for some people. 1. The mini fridge in my room was broken (or at least I think it was) because when I turned it on it never really got cold. 2. Soundproofing in this hotel isn’t all that great. It’s very easy to hear someone walking past your room and I was even able to hear the person in the room next to me talking to someone else pretty clearly through the wall. 3. Probably my biggest complaint about the room. There are no trash cans in the room or on my floor that I could find that had some kind of trash bag in it. First day I was there I went out and brought fast food back to my room for lunch. I ended up having to throw my trash from it away in a garbage can in the Starbucks down in the lobby. Rest of Hotel: I didn’t really explore this hotel much outside of the lobby and my room. However, the facilities such as the elevators worked perfectly fine with no maintenance issues. It also appears that this hotel offers car valet services as the had a little podium with some staff outside the front doors that looked like it was set up for that purpose. I couldn’t tell personally since I Uber’d to the hotel to and from the airport when I was there. Hotel Location: I don’t normally include a section about this but I feel this hotel’s location warrants one so here are some key points that I personally noted: 1. If you’re into tourism and want to see the NC Capital building, this hotel is only a few blocks away and easily within walking distance. 2. As I mentioned before it’s across the street from the convention center so I would highly recommend it if you’re coming to Raleigh for an event at the convention center. Overall it’s a great hotel and perfect if you’re traveling to Raleigh for a convention or general tourism of the city. Aside from my complaints about the room (which I personally think the hotel can fix a couple of them easily) it’s probably the hotel I would choose to stay at again if I ever find myself needing to return to Raleigh in the"
"I used Marriott points for an overnight stay in August, 2020. Check-in was seamless. The room I was given was clean and quiet, probably because there were only a few guests. The Fitness Center was closed, and the only restaurant in the hotel, the Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen, was only open at night. However, there is a Starbucks in the hotel lobby that is open until 2:00 p.m. Pros: Professional Employees, Excellent Service (2) disinfectant wipes in room (3) hand sanitizing stations all over public areas (4) face masks required (5) signs reminding guests to maintain a distance of 6 feet or 2 meters from others. (6) clean, quiet room Cons: (1) I found the hotel hard to find even with GPS, especially since the street in front of it was blocked because of anticipated protests (we later learned after we left that the protests resulted in vandalism, not to the hotel itself, but to other businesses in the city). We had to circle around the block several times after the GPS told us we had arrived. Luckily, I saw a "Marriott" sign and drove through an alley-looking street to get to the front of the hotel. (2) No valet parking Overall, though, I would recommend the hotel."
"We spent one night here for a dance competition at the convention center. The hotel was very accommodating. We arrived almost two hours early and were able to go to our room. They also extended our check out time by a few mins to fit with the dance schedule. The room and hotel was clean and beautiful. The convenience to the convention center was perfect for what we needed. A few surprises- the pool was extremely cold, the hot tub/spa was not working, breakfast buffet was nearly cold with very slow service, and we had an odd experience with valet taking over 20 mins to get our car when they couldn’t find the keys when we were trying to leave and go to dinner.
