We've been staying at this location several times over the last few weeks. It's easy to find and there is plenty of parking. It's located close enough to just about everything you could possibly need yet you don't feel you're in a big city, some are within walking distance.
The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is professional and helpful.
They don't have coffee available all day like some places. The breakfast is OK.

We stay here periodically for UNC dr visits about twice a year for 3 years now. It's easy to get to nearby restaurants and shops. The staff has always been super friendly and helpful. Rooms/common areas are clean and free breakfast is included. Family and business traveler friendly. Highly recommended.

The room we stayed in was clean and spacious. For a family of 5, it was very useful having a separate space for the toilet and the shower. And having 2 sinks for bedtime and mornings was very handy too. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
I gave a rating of 3 stars because there was a lot of broken things in the shared spaces. The elevator buttons were broken. There was only one working treadmill in the exercise room-- the broken one didn't even have a sign on it noting it was out of order. The internet on the TV in our room would randomly cut off, and the TV would go blank.
The lack of attention to the small details felt so off for the Marriott standard. I chose this location because there were so many good reviews, so maybe my stay just occurred during a weird time.

This hotel provides convenient access to Duke, UNC, RDU and other popular places around the Triangle. It's towne centre-like location puts it within walking distance to Duke Health and a number of well-known retailers and restaurants. A special shout-out to Wilmur at the front desk for providing 1st class customer service!! The modern lobby was clean and inviting. Loved the split bathroom layout in our suite. The suite unfortunately had a "musty" smell that somewhat improved after requesting our '3-day stay freshen up'. The staff struggled to set up (maintain) the hot breakfast buffet on time; however the food was tasty. Will definitely stay here again when visiting the area!
Tip: Parking is shared w/ the other businesses during core hours, so note the posted signs. Daily RV/trailer parking is available in the East end parking area (towards Home Depot).

Best room ever can’t complain ! Sucks breakfast is over so early possibly they could extend. I also didn’t like the homeless sleeping outside in tents.

Decent sleep for a one night work trip. However, the room is extremely cold and even though I turned off the AC it’s still freezing hours later. I can hear people in adjacent rooms using the bathroom and flushing their toilet. Continental breakfast is extremely limited and nothing is labeled. The front desk staff member was rude and unhelpful. Definitely an average to below average experience.

More like 4.5 stars . Perfect location! There were a few places within walking distance for lunch or dinner. We were in town for the weekend and this place was nice and quiet. Also, it wasn't far from a shopping mall. When in town again, I would definitely stay here.

Very well suited to doing college visits in the area. Liked the Studio/suite setup that provides separated shower and toilet (sink with each) and mini fridge and microwave. Walking distance for quick food stops like Five Guys, Duck Donuts and pizza.

This place was the perfect spot for our trip to Durham. The room was spacious and the beds slept great! Staff have all been so nice and helpful. Location was great too. Highly recommend!

Good: quiet room, comfortable bed. I was not interested in the chain restaurants nearby so I went to Carrborro. Stay here instead of airb@you know, please(the hotel was reasonably priced). After coming to the place we rented and hearing a loud party, this hotel was so quiet. Nice shower too. The room was updated.
They only gave us 3 large towels though. We needed one more. I love the lotion they provide, it smells amazing.
You can sometimes hear vehicles outside the window, but the bed was comfortable.

Location, location, location.! Dinner is only 100 ft away. Extremely close to six restaurants that are walking distance and maybe another 25 places within half a mile. Clean, updated and super friendly staff. Nice gym and a really nice indoor pool and hot tub. Had a blast with the family. Love the Marriott
