I have stayed at the City Center Marriott several times. It is a great location with an easy walk to most of downtown Raleigh and the Capitol. The hotel is very well appointed, but the big reason to stay is the staff. I have only great things to say about them from check in to check out. The bar and... More

I have stayed at this hotel for both business and personal trips and would recommend to colleagues and friends. The hotel is in a great location surrounded by many things to do. The staff, service, and rooms are top quality and what i'd expect from a downtown hotel. The hotel has been more than accommodating even during last minute trips... More

This hotel never fails to impress me, from the front desk staff remembering me, to the upgrades they offer me for being a platinum member, they go out of their way. The staff is excellent and up to and beyond Marriott's high standards. The restaurant is great, although being a platinum member the executive lounge has a great breakfast and... More

Perfect location. Very clean, but the rooms are starting to show its age. Really great indoor pool, however, it is too cold to swim. Hot Tub was just a little too hot. The staff was amazing, quick and responsive.

Shopping mall only 500 Meyers away across an 8 lane road. Plenty of places to eat nearby. Hotel itself was clean and tidy and had a nice bar and a lovely place outside to sit in the sunshine. Pool was not open yet but looks like it will be nice even tho it's next to the hotel parking area.

I recently stayed for the Internet Summit and thoroughly enjoyed my visit! The room was very clean, bed was comfy. I thoroughly enjoyed the Netflix streaming provided in the room and appreciated the ability to earn loyalty points by bypassing the daily housekeeping service. I also really enjoyed the bar downstairs, food and drinks were fantastic. Each staff member I... More

After waiting 20-30 minutes to get checked in because they had to work us in, although we had a reservation, they sent us to a room that someone was already in! So you are not safe anyone can get to your room! Then they gave us a room that was not what we had booked. No refrigerator, no microwave and... More

We have stayed at Marriotts all over the world and this one left something to be desired. The best thing about it was the location meaning there are lots of other places you can walk to to eat and drink. The room was fair, a bit outdated and worn. The concierge lounge was closed to elite members in the evening... More

I want to off with the front desk, Josh was amazing! He was helpful, and just fun to talk to. The bar and restaurant, had good prices and as a Raleigh resident I never knew they had amazing daily dining specials! This hotel is in the middle of everything, and a short uber trip to glenwood for more fun. This... More
