SpringHill Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport/Research Triangle Park
Ranked #36 of 71 Hotels in Durham
Reviewed 30 March 2017

Reception personnel - Asia, Kim and Nathan - are great. Kim and Nathan essentially saved my trip. I mentioned to Kim that I would be at the hotel again in a few days. She quickly checked the reservation file, and couldn't find my "second" reservation. My error! I thought I had booked two stays at the hotel, separated by a couple of days. However, I had booked my second stay at a different hotel in the Marriott family. Kim quickly corrected my mistake. Then, when attempting to confirm my arrival for the second stay, I hit "cancel". A quick call to Nathan corrected my second error, and I was able to request early check-in.

Cecilia in food service is a delight. The breakfast offerings are varied and plentiful - eggs, sausage, ham, cheese, hard-cooked eggs, breads and muffins, porridge, dry cereal, two types of yogurt (Activia and Oikos), fresh strawberries, oranges, bananas, pineapple.

The hotel is close to I-40, so if traffic hum is bothersome, request a room away from I-40. Ask for a room on the west side of the hotel.

The fitness center is small, but adequate: 2 treadmills, 1 elliptical, 1 bike, free weights, 1 bench. It would be improved with the addition of a second bench or a yoga mat for stretching and floor exercises.

I recommend adding a second grab bar at the tub. The single grab bar is installed at the head of the tub, which is adjacent to the toilet. It's awkward to hold the grab bar while attempting to get footing on the floor, and avoid the toilet. It's much easier to exit at the foot of the tub, but there's no grab bar.

Room Tip: Rooms on west side (away from I-40) are quieter. Top floor (4th floor) rooms are quietest.

Our daughter had an early morning flight out the next day and we needed a place close to the airport, so the location and price were great for what we needed. We arrived late in the afternoon to find a crowded lobby and only one person behind the desk. We had to wait a few minutes, but another person came back to answer another guest's question who had been waiting. We had to wait a few minutes to check in, which was no big deal, but it seemed like we were a bother, which should have been a big red flag. We headed up to our room, which was clean and adequate. We decided to head down to the pool, but found it full of kids, jumping and running. Water was coming out from under the door and into the lobby area, making the area by the elevators very slick. So, we went back up and came back a couple of hours later, only to find the same kids having a birthday party and the water was still there all over the floor, only a wet floor sign had been placed in the middle of it. We gave up and went back up to get ready for dinner, thinking that by 9:30, it would be clear. Nope. They were still there and so was the water all over the floor, except it had travelled to the entrance of the elevator. No one seemed too concerned at the front desk. I wish that I could say that it got better from there, but it didn't. We had to be up at 4am and had hoped to get a good sleep, but were continuously awakened by kids running up and down the hallways screaming from about midnight until 1 am, which with the thin doors, was really loud. The beds did sleep good when we were able to sleep. When we left at 5 am, we were greeted with throw up all over the elevator side and door as we got off in the lobby. We told the desk clerk and she said that she knew who did it and was trying to figure out what to do. That same throw up mess would still be there when we came back from dropping our daughter off at the airport an hour later and when we came down at 7 to eat breakfast. It was finally gone when we headed back up to the room at 7:45. The breakfast, was well, lacking, very few options. After staying at the Springhill Suites in Chapel Hill recently and having a nice selection with fresh fruits, meats and breads, this was terrible. The eggs had no flavor, the turkey sausage was dried up and overcooked. They had a few muffins, bread and make your own waffles, which just had whipped cream and syrup for toppings. The seating area is very small, so I had people crowded around the waffle makers at my back as I tried to eat. We thought about trying to give the pool another try, but the same kids were in there again and the water was back. We won't be staying here again.

Please accept my sincere apology that we let you down during your recent stay at our hotel. It's unfortunate, that the kids kept you awake and not able to utilized the pool/spa area. We pride ourselves on service excellence and it was disappointing that we did not provide the service that you have come to expect with our brand. I truly appreciate your feedback as it will help our management team continue to improve and strive towards providing great service every stay.

Not my favorite Springhill, but it wasn't bad for the price. When I made my reservation on the Marriott app it was for an "Executive Level Suite" but when I arrived I received a room on the second floor. I asked the gentleman at the desk about my room and he informed me that there was no "Executive Level" and that all the rooms were the same. The location is not ideal as there are no shops or restaurants in the immediate vicinity, it's more of a office park location but it is close to I-40. The rooms were spacious with a comfortable bed couch and desk. The breakfast buffet area is small and there wasn't enough seating for everyone, one of the staff did however open up a congress room for guests to dine in. If you're in the area for business or stopping on a road trip this is a good option. Definitely do t recommend for a family or couple looking to dine out and shop.

Thank you very much for choosing our hotel for your recent stay. It is good to hear that you enjoyed the comfort and size of the room. We do have a preferred location and property for business travelers and guests stopping in during a road trip. I feel that we could have helped you more with the dining out and shopping. We are within 5-6 miles of two brand new shopping centers. One is Park West Village and the other is Parkside Town Commons. Each has a large variety of dining and shopping. They are both about 10 minutes from the property. We have a shopping list at the Front Desk for each of these centers if guests need to see what will be offered. We can make recommendations for dining in each of these locations. We do frequently open our Boardroom for breakfast guests that need a place to sit. We try very hard to watch the flow of our guests coming into the lobby. Concerning the Executive Level Suites, they were originally labeled as such when we added in the Keurig coffee makers and other amenities. Initially these upgrades were only offered on the 4th floor. We have since added them into each room. The size and layout of the rooms on the 4th floor are identical to the other floors. We apologize for the unexpected change and hope you would stay with us again. We appreciate your feedback very much.

Friendly staff.
Room design was not good. After trying to watch television, the ache in my neck was so bad I had to take some Advil. If you sit on the sofa or lay in bed you have to twist your neck to see the TV. The lighting in the bathroom was absolutely terrible. You cannot see to put make up on-day or night. Could hear the people walking in the room above us. Will not stay there again.

Needed a quick stopover en route to flying out the next morning so went with Marriott. I was offered and accepted this hotel. I had previously stayed at Fairfield Inn Brier Creek, a wonderful experience. Tired off the road and a tough project, I had to wait while the front desk clerk took a guest down every side street to get to a restaurant. I grabbed a beer, observed the interior but she kept talking. Finally I interjected and asked if I could check in. No apology, no orientation, no bottled water for being a Marriott Rewards member. Nevertheless, the room and property were standard Marriott clean and quality. Location may be good for those visiting nearby businesses but I prefer the Brier Creek area and professionalism.
