Very good hotel. Staff were courteous and helpful. Good food withing walking distance and very close to NCSU campus. The only issue I had with the room was the patio doors are old and extremely loud when neighbors open and close their sliding doors. No patio furniture.

I do travel frequently for business. I would stay there again. Great location and the staff make you feel welcomed. A warm cookie on arrival and complimentary beverages in my room were perfect. All of the staff have a smile on their face and greet you.

Great location, very friendly staff, comfortable room but had too many events going on at one time. We returned to our room at 8:30 p.m. following a wedding & there were no parking spaces to be found. We were informed there were 3 weddings taking place that evening on-site & guests would start leaving around 11:00 p.m.! We finally found...

From the checkin to checkout this hotel had lots going for it. Attentive clerks, comfortable room with a good mattress and pillows, and clean, comfortable surroundings. Went to a wedding reception there and the food was outstanding. Recommend this hotel very highly.

Great location. Clean. Great bar and food. But the foam mattress is a lump. No insulation in the windows--can hear all exterior noise, even conversations in the parking lot. Had internet issues so no connectivity.

I used the DoubleTree Raleigh on Hillsborough Street for my recent event and utilized 40 of their rooms and had dinner there two nights. My guests were comfortable and they raved on and on about how great the food was both nights. I am forever indebted to Derek Allen and Nicole Jones for taking such good care of my guests....

Comfortable hotel. Was a little loud and busy but looks like its used for conferences also. Room was clean and beds are nice. Was a lot of noise coming from the parking lot and road and could use some chairs on the balcony. Not a bad stay

The Hilton Double Tree has been renovated within the last several years but even with that “it’s NOT worth the price.” I was told by hotel management that the building was constructed in the 1960’s, well I can tell you “she’s feeling her age”. Yes, the walls are freshly painted and the bed/liens are bright and comfortable but the bones...

The quality is not what I expected. I had to have my room changed from 610 or 612 to 514, because my original room smelled like mildew. The balconies needed to be pressured cleaned and the decor of the rooms were dark and dreary...Great cocktails in the lobby!
