I love this Holiday Inn. They are always super friendly and the place is always clean. It has a 60's vibe decor and the restaurant/bar is on the top floor. Very convenient for when I've been at meetings all day and just want a glass or two of wine and a quick bite.

Heat stop working around 1 am. They sent a security guy to check it out and he didnt know what to do but unplug the unit and plug it back up. They sent us to another room in the middle of the night. Bathrooms are very small. No microwave and no fridge. They have very nice housekeepers. I was confused...

Dear Veronica L, Thanks for letting us know about your experience and choosing to stay with us. I'm glad at knowing you had pleasant encounters with our housekeeping staff. On the other hand, it is disconcerting to know that there was an issue with the heating system in your initial room which caused you the inconvenience of having to switch...

We spent 2 nights at this location for the Raleigh World Beer Festival. Location is the best thing about this hotel. There are many restaurant/bar choices within walking distance. Plus, this city is aesthetically pleasing to wander around. The architecture is different and the views frequent. This time of year was great to experience the early blooming of trees &...

One of the only hotels in downtown Raleigh, so it commands a premium price on its rooms. The other unique aspect to this hotel is its shape. It's round! As such, access to your living area is different. This can present a noise problem as we found out. The room itself, although odd shaped, was nicely furnished and the bed...

We had two side by side rooms at the Holiday Inn. They were quiet, clean and comfortable. We had dinner and breakfast at the top floor restaurant , which were quite tasty (shrimp scampi pasta, vegetable hash with eggs). The location was fine, close to museums and the capitol building.

We actually live in the area but stayed here with out of town guests who were attending a family event. Great location within walking distance of downtown entertainment districts and decent restaurants. Funky old timey round Holiday Inn shape. Rooms are nice -- the hotel is showing some age. The parking is a bit challenging going up the round decks...

Pleasant stay at this hotel. No complaints other than parking is a little confusing at first since the large lot beside it is not theirs. Staff was great, rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Walking distance to several restaurants and bars. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

I remember when this building was built when my family was living in Raleigh. I always wanted to stay in this round building, and I finally got the chance. The room was wonderful, the view was wonderful, the staff was very friendly. The restaurant is on the 20th floor and has great food, friendly service and the most beautiful views...
