We stayed here on our college road trip the service was terrific. Any thing we asked for from extra towels to a flash light when the electric went out due to a storm in the middle of the night, was given to us within minutes of the request. The front desk and bellman were very friendly. We were able to...

I only stay here if I know I need to be in the Durham area or north of town. The rooms are nice as well as the bar area. They do have a shuttle which can take you to the Tobacco Warehouse area that has dining, bars and the baseball stadium. However, it's difficult to park, unless you valet. Not...

Hotel was adequate. Clean, quiet. We asked for a quiet room. Not near an elevator. We were given a 2nd floor room overlooking a roof and giant fan. The windows were coated with some type of opaque residue that made it difficult to see out. We were visiting Duke University so location was good. Otherwise ok. Front desk staff very...

I attended a conference at the Marriott City Center's conference room. The location of this hotel is great if you like walking to good restaurants. The downtown area of Durham was a pleasant surprise. This was my first time in Durham. If I go back, i stay at this hotel again.

The Marriott City Center is in a great location, a block from Main St., and a 10 min. walk to the ball park. Lots of good restaurants close by, and a short drive to the Duke campus and Duke Medical center. The rooms are large and well kept, but the best feature is the staff. Everyone is warm and friendly,...

We recently returned to Durham to mourn the passing of our 24 yr. old nephew.

The folks on the front desk could not have been more helpful and friendly.
