Reviewed yesterday NEW

Rooms are dated and the bathrooms are quite small. I was surprised at how small the rooms are. Lots of misses during my visit for remediation of my disappointments. Chain brags about their cookies and never offered at arrival. Asked for a space heater for the room and never received. Thought breakfast was included; it wasn't. $12 a person... better...

I enjoyed my stay here. Omar at the Front Desk was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. He suggested a place for dinner that we really enjoyed. He was always willing to help and was a joy a talk to. This hotel is very close to NC state and was convenient to other locations that we visited as well....

Beds were so comfortable. Room was on the ground floor, near the laundry. There was a gas smell which made us nervous. The gym was on the same floor. Overall the stay was very nice. Breakfast was ok, but not worth the price (similar to other hotels). I was attending a wedding, and they did a very nice job with...

We chose the Brownstone because of its location. When my wife and I were dating she lived in an apartment directly across Hillsborough street from the hotel. We no longer live in the area, so when invited to a wedding in town, we thought it would be fun to stay close to were we started. The wedding we were attending...

It's tough to find a better place for the money. Great staff, clean rooms, close proximity to downtown and great price. Dont pass up on staying here because they do a great job. In fact, don't stay here because I want there to be vacancy when I want to stay.

My wife and I enjoyed the Doubletree and its convenient location to the Hillsbourough Street restaurants and to the YMCA next door. The room and hotel in general were updated, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Please note that this hotel does not offer a complimentary breakfast. However, we had the breakfast buffet which was very good with excellent wait staff.
