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...

Very nice hotel in an extremely convenient location. The hotel is located only a five minute walk from the museums and state capital downtown. Also very friendly and attentive staff. My fiancé and I had an amazing dinner at the Angus Barn and brought back leftovers. Our room did not come with a refrigerator, so we asked the front desk...

Good clean room with great service in a unique hotel. Good views. Standard offerings for the chain. Walking distance to most downtown locations. Was here for 1 night on business. Would stay here again if in the area.

Room on the 18th floor was much better than other reviews had indicated. We believe the room had recently been renovated and was very clean. The review should be higher as the service and environment were excellent but the doors allowed much hallway noise in to the room...didn't sleep at all the first night until about 4:00AM. Recommend rooms not...

I reviewed this hotel last year. It has improved since then. I gave it a good review last year but this year commands even a better review. My company has class in one of their meeting rooms once a year. There are two Mike s here and they do a superb job of making you feel special. The food also...

My husband and I were in town for a wedding and were really excited because we had never been to Raleigh. We originally picked this hotel because we are ihg members and thought the location was good. The location is good. The hotel is bad. The lobby is well kept and nice but as soon as you take the elevator...

Very clean hotel. Every employee was helpful and happy. I was there for a conference and we took a break about every 2 hours. Each time, I visited the ladies room and it had been re-cleaned. GREAT JOB! The Keurig in my room was an amazing touch.

I recently stayed here over the weekend for a confere. I arrived late at night after a very long trip and waited a while to check in, as there was only 1 person available to check people in. Once I got to the room, I took a shower and the water would get slightly warm and no warmer. Since it...

I enjoyed an absolutely great experience. The concierge , Brandon at this hotel was exceptional throughout my short visit. A room was available before standard check in and he readily allowed me early access. He also provided his recommendations and all were proven correct on places to eat and visit. I found the hotel staff all warm and inviting and...

Where do I start.... I visit the Raleigh area at least twice a month for my job with NC State University / Cooperative Extension. This Holiday Inn accepts the state rate so I can stay at this fabulous hotel. Not only are the rooms comfortable (I believe they have renovated within the past 5 years) they are VERY clean too!...
