Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hotel is renovated and in good condition. Five minute walk to NCSU campus, very convenient. Also very close to Cameron Park area with lots of food and shopping choices. Hotel staff are very friendly. The only thing negative that can be said about this hotel is that the rooms are too hot.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This is my 2nd stay in this small, 1960s-era property, and the renovation is very successful. Rooms were immaculate; beds very good. The staff was great, very attentive and professional. Business lunch and dinner were very good. If you have a meeting or need to be in this part of Raleigh, this Doubletree will not disappoint. The small size precludes...

This is not my first experience with this Hotel. Had the opportunity to stay in one in Memphis last year and it was a great experience. The staff is friendly and the cleanliness was most appreciated. Looking forward to another stay in these excellent accommodations.

We were in town for an open house at NC State and it was in a perfect location. We got to experience the nearby campus and were in walking distance to restaurants. The beds were very comfortable. Great parking and easy to get in and out of.

I worked as a wedding planner with the team at the DoubleTree Brownstone. The staff were the most amazing to work with. Natasha was so helpful and accommodating. Darlene and the day of staff could not have been better partners for our mutual client. They anticipated needs and everything was as we discussed.

The hotel has very comfortable beds; however, in my room the thermostat didn't work properly and could not open the sliding glass door to the balcony. There was a bad smell in the lobby area but staff were very nice and accommodating.

The stay at the Doubletree was wonderful. The location next to NC State and downtown is great for getting around but also offers many options for eating and walking around. The staff are friendly and the rooms are comfortable. The cookie at check in was amazing and still warm. Loved hanging out in the lobby/bar.

Double Trees are usually a higher quality but it was obvious that this hotel was one that many college students/athletes had used over the years...needs updating. I would only stay again if the price were lower.
