The hotel has very comfortable beds; however, in my room the thermostat didn't work properly and could not open the sliding glass door to the balcony. There was a bad smell in the lobby area but staff were very nice and accommodating.

The stay at the Doubletree was wonderful. The location next to NC State and downtown is great for getting around but also offers many options for eating and walking around. The staff are friendly and the rooms are comfortable. The cookie at check in was amazing and still warm. Loved hanging out in the lobby/bar.

Double Trees are usually a higher quality but it was obvious that this hotel was one that many college students/athletes had used over the years...needs updating. I would only stay again if the price were lower.

Stayed here on short notice because it was close by. Inside is fine. Room and bed/pillows are very good. Breakfast buffet was average but included hot items with good bacon and sausage. Peeling paint on balconies and balky slider to the balconies need attention. Thermostat seemingly won't let you cool the room overnight.

This hotel was conveniently located next to NC State and not too far from downtown Raleigh. The hotel was clean and the lobby area was really nice. It looks like the lobby area was an expansion to this hotel. The hotel tower itself, where the rooms are, seems a bit older from the outside, but the rooms are really nice...
