Very nice rooms with all amenities that a business traveler would need but the highlight was service I received from the staff.
My flight getting in was horribly delayed and I arrived at RTP airport at 3am (when I was actually supposed to arrive at 10pm but kept getting delayed). I had called up the hotel from my connecting airport earlier and then at 3 am from RDU - they arranged for a taxi and picked up the tab for the trip (short ride and even at that hour would have been ~$15 per the cab driver - but the action counts).
The next day, I realized that my co-worker (coming from another office location) and on whose name the shared rental car was going to be, also couldn't make it in, the previous night. When I asked the staffer at the front desk (different one from the previous night - I believe her name was Michelle) for a cab, she had the hotel shuttle drop me to the my RTP office location free of charge and offered to pick me up as well if I needed.
I was left completely speechless with the genuiness with which both the hotel front desk staffers (at 2 different times) helped...will definitely stay here again if I have the chance to return to this area...
