Nicole D. in Sales and Catering was such a pleasure to work with. She helped me pull off this banquet against all odds! We could not have done it without her and her capable catering staff. Thanks to Darlene, Cliff, Bill W., Roz, Zulema, Juan, Engina, Maiga, Max, Cally, Heatha, Nicole and Derek!! You ROCK!!

The room was good, all the amenities, and clean, etc. The restaurant was worthless, they sent us to the bar for dinner where we were not waited on, and for breakfast, they were missing essential items on the menu. I realize we were paying for location, and not exactly luxury. Parking was very convenient, and free. Staff were very helpful...

Compliments to the staff at Doubletree for caring about my family! When booking our hotel stay, I meant to book the Doubletree in Raleigh-Cary since it is one minute away from my daughters apartment, but accidentally booked the Doubletree Brownstone. It wasn't until my husband and I arrived that I realized my mistake. When checking in, I explained my dilemma...

Great hotel to stay at when visiting students at State. Was within walking distance to campus and also to shopping and restaurants at Cameron Village. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Bed in our room was a bit too mushy memory foam mattress but was OK for one night. Bedframe squeaked upon every turn or movement in bed. We could hear...

Clean, neat. Rooms recently renovated and upgraded. I had reserved a king suite for my son's graduation from NC State. At the last minute, my daughter needed to stay with me. The hotel was very accommodating, switching my reservation to a room with two queens instead. Nice breakfast in the hotel market restaurant. All things considered, a nice stay.

The staff is great and very approachable. I'm never afraid to ask them for anything I need. If they don't know they will find out for you! also, they check back with you to make sure that you got what you needed.

Helpful staff, nice rooms, easy walking distance to restaurants (we tried David's, Tupelo Honey & sushi which were all good), easy driving into downtown Raleigh. Lots of events held here so ask for a room in a higher floor and all will be good.

Went shopping in Cameron village. My breakfast was great in their restaurant. The waitress greeted me with a smile. I will stay again.

Property was remodeled five years ago when the building should have been razed. Rooms are small and have balconies with old, peeling paint. Cigarette butts on balcony overlooking very noisy, public parking lot. No one asked for my car make/model, no security on property whatsoever. Doors held open and anyone has access to main elevators. Front lobby is well decorated...

Very good hotel. Staff were courteous and helpful. Good food withing walking distance and very close to NCSU campus. The only issue I had with the room was the patio doors are old and extremely loud when neighbors open and close their sliding doors. No patio furniture.
