Super convenient to DPAC

Posted Jul 15, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: A wider variety (larger) snack shop
Location: I am not familiar with Durham so I can't really say much about the location other than what I already did about the convenience to DPAC.
We were only there for a 1 night stay. We were in town for an evening event @ DPAC. The staff was great from the moment we pulled up until the moment we drove away the next morning. The valet staff was very helpful with directions & extremely prompt when we were ready to leave. We walked to the event (hotel is about 4 blocks from DPAC) but they (valet & desk staff) made a point of asking us, "How was the show?" when we returned. The walk back was late in the evening but the area was well-lit & we felt completely safe. Room service was faster than Jimmy John's! We really could not have asked for a better experience.

Great hotel, location was terrific.

Posted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: If it had a swimming pool, it would be perfect.
Location: Resturants, pubs, parks, it has it all.
Came here for a wedding, about 50 guests booked here. We took over the lobby/ sitting area near the bar. Even thou we weren't buying drinks or food, the staff let us occupy the tables. The entire hotel staff were extremely friendly & helpful. The hotel is within walking distance to numerous resturants & pubs, no need for a car.

A very out of date Marriott with that 80's style

Posted Jun 28, 2014
Pros: It is well located
Cons: Elevators need a major overhaul. Lobby needs to be updated. The only reason to stay here is that there are not many other options.

Good location & comfy rooms. No WiFi or breakfast

Posted May 30, 2014
The hotel is in very good location right in the heart of Durham center. The rooms are quite comfortable and everything else is like any other Marriott. They recently started to charge for WiFi in the bedroom which really is a deal breaker. I'm very much against this policy and I most certainly will be going to another hotel as soon as there's something else in the area. Complimentary breakfast is another miss, but this has always been like this.

Cons: See above
Would be nice to offer internet in the rooms rather than just the lobby. Site stated free internet and free parking. Parking was free on the street no parking lot.

Cold Room

Posted Jan 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
We got a nice corner room but all the windows made the room very cold. Even when we turned the heat up the room never got warm.
