Nice property set back which has its pluses and minuses, you can slightly hear the expressway from the parking lot but otherwise is a quiet and peaceful setting. The down side to that is your not really able to walk to restaurants or shopping if needed. The property has a restaurant, bar, and gym so you can just hang out there. The food was decent. But is was a bit like being on an island.
The pool area and outdoor covered seating areas added to the resort feel. The staff were friendly and helpful.
I enjoyed my stay but if I were to nit pick I would recommend more constant cleaning. It seemed the some of the common areas didn't get vacuumed often enough.

The property is very cozy with great touches like white rocking chairs, porch swings, a large fireplace in the lobby, and a pool area with a pool house, lounge chairs and lots of greenery. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, the water is hot and the pressure is standard. It could use some updates (as most everyone said), the standard pillows in the room a bit a bit hard, the walls are quite thin and, in case it matters to someone, there's a mirror at the foot of the bed, which can be a no-no in some cultures. Property is a solid 4-to-4.5.
Everyone at the property has been incredibly chill and accommodating of my requests, especially Darnell. He has that great mix of easygoing, warm professionalism that really made me feel welcome and valued, bringing the charm of the property full circle, and putting the final star in my 5-star rating.

This is one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in. The room was clean, nice and well kept. The service was excellent and the attendants, bartenders and staff were nice. We didn't eat at the attached restaurant but the bar was well managed.

The staff are very friendly & accommodating. The rooms are dated, but acceptable. Cleanliness was slightly below average. There were smears on glass table tops & carpet looked like it needed a deep clean.

100% recommend. Helpful and very friendly staff, rooms are good enough, breakfast is better than most other hotels. The hotel manager, front desk manager and other reception staff members took good care of all the guests. If you are planning to host a big group of people, this is your hotel to stay !

I rarely leave reviews, but this place is simply amazing. The hotel is clearly an older property that doesn't fit the generic business class model. It should serve as an example on how to maintain a classic venue. It has balconies overlooking a well maintained courtyard, tons of covered outdoor spaces, an outstanding restaurant that's not just an afterthought, a nice bar, and tons of meeting space. Every member of the staff was polite, courteous, and seemed to genuinely care about my stay / experience. The front desk staff was beyond phenomenal, and the management folks were even better! I had a last-minute meeting space need and they actually arranged for me to use a room that had been vacated early. Without question, this is the only place I'll be staying on future trips to Raleigh.,

Have been staying at this hotel quite alot over the years and have always had a good experience. This was one of the first hotels to offer any kind of food and drink to go in the midst of the pandemics early days. The bar staff here is amazing and the food is good too. This is my go to hotel whenever I am working in the triangle.

Although we have stayed at other Double tree hotels. It was our first time staying at this location. The exterior of the hotel was very clean and inviting. Very convenient location between Durham and Raleigh. The airport is conveniently located less than 15 minutes away. The check in process was quick and seamless. The host he was professional and friendly. That's kinda rare these days in the times we are in.
The interior of the hotel was very inviting, modern, sleek, and clean.
Although there appeared to be a wedding reception going on it wasn't bad.
The room itself it was very clean, sanitized. However I wasn't a huge fan of the carpet. But it wasn't a complete deal breaker. The bed slept great. When and if we travel to the area again I think we would consider staying at this location again.

As a Gold member you will enjoy the free breakfast coupons for both of us and free drinks at the bar for both of us ($15 each to spend), not including tips. Very nice and big place. The swimming pool.is not operating during the week, just weekend. No one swimming during the week when I was there. Over all I am happy, just the pillows that were thinner, but u can ask more to make them thicker. Thanks to Tom and Charlie to make me feel better with the cold water and extra pillows. It helps me sleep better.

We stayed one night as a stop over to visit family in the area. We checked in around 9 pm. The employee at the check in desk was so cheerful and welcoming. The lobby was packed with people enjoying food at one of the tables or kids watching the TVs. The weekend we stayed always had a baseball tournament so we weren’t surprised by the number of kids around. The room was clean. It didn’t seem outdated to me. There was an instance where the power surged at one point, but everything came back on after a second. My only complaint is that the AC didn’t seem to work in our room right. It was set at 65, but the thermostat said our room was at 70 degrees. It felt much warmer, not enough to make a big deal about for one night, but enough to disrupt our sleep.
