The hotel is perfectly-located in downtown Durham. It's very convenient if you're staying in the area. The room, starting with the very comfortable bed and the spotless bathroom, was great. The only drawbacks at this hotel are the misleading parking situation and the WiFi (couldn't connect at first then found out you have to pay for it). I researched parking...

This Marriott may not be the newest, it certainly has the best staff. I've stayed here several time, originally for its location in downtown Durham but came back because of the staff. I'm sad I didn't get any names so I can give them individual praise but everyone from the valet to the concierge were friendly and helpful each time...

We came to see a show at the durham Performing Arts Center and it was a perfect location. As we did not have a car, we walked all over that area and were so impressed on all the renovation of the tobacco warehouses. The staff was extremely genteel and the hotel was clean. Would recommend.

The south is of course renowned for its overly friendly people and exceptional hospitality but the Durham Marriott City Center takes it to a new high point. Every one I ran into was cheery and helpful. From the bellman who greeted me at the door, to the desk clerks, cleaning staff and restaurant staff. It was noticeably exceptional! The room...

This full Marriott is located in the heart of downtown, easy walking distance from dozens of restaurants, three or four blocks from the Bulls stadium and Durham Performing Arts Center, and is immediately adjacent to the Carolina Theater. The rooms have been refurbished relatively recently and my two stays there in the last year have been great. I believe the...

Stayed here for a wedding in Durham. From the moment we arrived the staff was attentive and courteous. Great location with many restaurants and activities within walking distance. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. The valet staff was awesome, even making recommendations for golf for my husband and friends and informative on drive times for our sightseeing adventures.

Staff were polite, greeted us every possible opportunity, and constantly asked if they could do anything to make our stay better and more comfortable. We had a great time. The fitness center was clean, and among the better I've seen in large hotel chains.
