Hotel is older but we'll maintained. Room is smaller but good use of space. The indoor pool is nice and they also have Jacuzzi. Work out room is good size for property. Staff is friendly. The location appears isolated but near a lot including RDU, RTP and other areas. Would stay again.

The staff was great from the van driver to check-in, restaurant staff, everyone I came in contact with was polite. The air conditioner in my room didn't work that well so it got a little stuffy at times & the wall paper in the room was starting to peel some. Overall stay was ok.

Stayed for few days for business and was able to get my corporate rate, even though the available rooms at the rate were already booked. Thanks, Edrick for helping me out. Additionally, the lobby lounge staff is very friendly, and the food is top notch. With the exception of one of the servers in the concierge lounge, every interaction with...

First I must preface that I'm certain this hotel caters to a business clientele. I love Marriotts, I love the Marriott beds, and I even love the Marriott burger. My only issue with this Marriott is it's location. It's pretty secluded. Granted it's close to the airport and probably had a mission statement regarding the numerous airport passengers they accommodate....

Dear Parliamentboy, Thank you for your feedback. We have a great location in the Research Triangle Park right off I40, close to 540 and just 3 miles from the airport. The property is surrounded by trees giving a park like feel. There are local restaurants less than a mile away. We are close to many local businesses such as Cisco,...

I'm from the West Coast, and had always heard about Southern hospitality--Marriot at Research Triangle Park delivers this like none other! The hotel itself is a traditional style Marriott, and includes an exercise room and outdoor pool. It's located close enough to the airport to be handy, and far enough away that you don't hear planes overhead. In fact, I...

We are lucky enough to stay at a lot of hotels, and we are very picky about where we stay, as we seek out nice hotels with excellent customer service. The Marriott at RTP did not disappoint!

We stayed the night at this hotel. For a Marriott this hotel seems a little in need of some updating. The bed was comfortable. We did enjoy drinks at the lobby bar. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

This is not a place to stay if you want to be in the middle of everything. If you want to focus on business or don't mind a little drive to get around, this is the place to stay. Just be careful making a left out of the drive-way. There's a serious blind spot in both directions with not a...

As a typical Marriott traveler, the Marriott Durham Raleigh was by far the best full service accommodating and friendliest Marriott in the NC region. Joanna and Johanna both made our stay enjoyable with their welcoming hospitality. The hotel was exceptionally clean in rooms and public space!

So this was it...one of our team's last of of town travel tournaments. We've made this trip to the Raleigh/ Durham area for times, and this was--by far--the best trip. This property was very conveniently situated half way between both parks where our games were held. And it was also close to the airport and to all the local universities,...
