First I must preface that I'm certain this hotel caters to a business clientele. I love Marriotts, I love the Marriott beds, and I even love the Marriott burger. My only issue with this Marriott is it's location. It's pretty secluded. Granted it's close to the airport and probably had a mission statement regarding the numerous airport passengers they accommodate....

Dear Parliamentboy, Thank you for your feedback. We have a great location in the Research Triangle Park right off I40, close to 540 and just 3 miles from the airport. The property is surrounded by trees giving a park like feel. There are local restaurants less than a mile away. We are close to many local businesses such as Cisco,...

I'm from the West Coast, and had always heard about Southern hospitality--Marriot at Research Triangle Park delivers this like none other! The hotel itself is a traditional style Marriott, and includes an exercise room and outdoor pool. It's located close enough to the airport to be handy, and far enough away that you don't hear planes overhead. In fact, I...

We are lucky enough to stay at a lot of hotels, and we are very picky about where we stay, as we seek out nice hotels with excellent customer service. The Marriott at RTP did not disappoint! From the managers Bill and Marty, to the front desk staff, to the restaurant workers, to the custodial staff, to the little personal...

We stayed the night at this hotel. For a Marriott this hotel seems a little in need of some updating. The bed was comfortable. We did enjoy drinks at the lobby bar. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

This is not a place to stay if you want to be in the middle of everything. If you want to focus on business or don't mind a little drive to get around, this is the place to stay. Just be careful making a left out of the drive-way. There's a serious blind spot in both directions with not a...

As a typical Marriott traveler, the Marriott Durham Raleigh was by far the best full service accommodating and friendliest Marriott in the NC region. Joanna and Johanna both made our stay enjoyable with their welcoming hospitality. The hotel was exceptionally clean in rooms and public space!

So this was it...one of our team's last of of town travel tournaments. We've made this trip to the Raleigh/ Durham area for times, and this was--by far--the best trip. This property was very conveniently situated half way between both parks where our games were held. And it was also close to the airport and to all the local universities,...

Airport is relatively close. En route to southern North Carolina, I stayed here for a night. Good service and room. Check-in was a breeze with good service. Bed was very comfortable and good price on a weekend night.

I'm guessing this Marriott's probably on the list for renovation sometime in the next few years. Rooms are a little dated -- they're Marriott v.6.0... the ones with the clear red lamp fixtures and the spotlights over the bed. It works fine, but is starting to look a little old. The staff here tries hard and is quite friendly. The...
