We stayed here to tour NC State Univ. Good spot. Close to campus. Easy to walk or drive places. There must have been 50 restaurants nearby to meet a variety of tastes. We walked to have dinner. We drove onto campus for the tour because the tour location is on the far side of campus from this hotel. Clean, Comfortable... More

I stayed here for a business trip and was impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms and common areas and the friendliness of the staff. The rooms are very nicely updated, however having a small refrigerator in the room would've been welcome. I was unable to get good wifi connection. The coffee maker in the room was a definite plus!... More

This hotel was very nice. Location for both Durham and Raleigh was good. Clean. All personnel was helpful and courteous. Complimentary coke, and of course, COOKIES!! Free internet. Great size of TV . room very comfortable and roomy. NO real views to talk about, but good location for NC State visit. I'd recommend if you're going to the College.

My kids and I made a trip to Raleigh for a birthday party. We stayed at the DoubleTree only because I bidded on the rooms through Priceline.

Karena B., Glad you had an enjoyable stay and hopefully the birthday party was a success. As for the parking lot lighting we installed a new lighting package when we renovated the hotel 4 years ago. There are 21 lights in our parking lot. We certainly met the Hilton standards. I will discuss your concerns with our Chief Engineer. Thanks... More

I was staying at the hotel as a business trip; I had no choice, as the meetings were held there. But the service and accommodations were so good, I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

Doubletree Hotel with warm cookies so starting on a high note. The hotel staff is helpful and pleasant. Complimentary wifi is iffy. Nearby church takes homeless overflow so that sometimes it is very noisy!

The entire staff was excellent the facility was clean. However, the hotel only has 2 elevators and only 1 worked during my 4 day stay. There was a convention booked and this was uncomfortable for all guests.

This was the most positive stay I have had at a hotel in a decade. The place was immaculate, service was great and I highly recommend anyone visiting the area to stay here! I have a daughter attending NC State and the hotel is perfectly situated near the University. I plan on staying here for every visit.
