Very Underwhelmed

At first glance,, Millenium Hotel looks nice and upscale. But once inside....the lobby couches were worn and faded from the sun. The room-the carpet was pulled away and fraying from the tile. There was black and pink mold on tile grout and black mold growing under the poor caulk job in the shower. The vanities were extremely low-faux granite. The bath and sink stoppers were black from the chrome being worn off. Wifi was $9.95 for twenty-four hours-what hotel charges for wifi anymore? Not impressed at all!

Depends on the room

I spent a quick night in Raleigh-Durham (arrived very late evening and left early next morning) and chose the Millenium because I am familiar with the NYC property. The hotel is very large and rambly and seems half renovated. I was assigned to the unrenovated half. The room was large but shabby -- and of questionable cleanliness. I would have complained but was too tired to do so. I did wonder however if I was put this room because of the discount Orbitz rate, regardless of whether better rooms were available.

Terrible Customer Service

The staff would not accommodate our needs whatsoever. I will be visiting Duke for many years to come, and will stay anywhere but here.

Not Staying There Again

I remember the Millenium being a nice place to stay a decade ago, but the quality has clearly lapsed. There was mold on the ceiling above the shower. The room was non-smoking, but smelled of cigarette smoke. On the Saturday I stayed there, there was a massive party, and a heavy pot scent reeked through the halls. Though the bones of the place are perfectly fine-- nice bar and pool, nice entrance and parking, and great location to Duke, it's not a hotel I'll be staying at again.

Not so great location, bad wireless

The hotel is located close to Duke, but not in a great neighborhood. They do have a shuttle to Duke campus, as you may not want to walk the 5-10 minutes to campus. Wireless was flaky. No cell reception inside building.

Power outage

The hotel was nice as usual, but there was an issue with the power. During our stay, the power went out one night and made for a horrible evening. It would also be nice if you could get some cell phone service in the hotel. At this time you cannot use your cell phones while in the hotel because of no service.

A Night's Sleep Spoiled

Because I was familiar with this hotel, when it began life as a Sheraton in the early 1980s, I hate to say anything less than nice about it. Unfortunately, I am compelled to point out the irony that the fourth floor of the hotel is occupied by Duke Sleep Disorder Clinic, which is where we wanted to head after just one night at the Millenium. On the bright side, it is very convenient to the Duke Campus, were we needed to be, the room was generously sized and the public areas and amenities of the Property are generally fine. However, the absolute most important part of a hotel stay, which is the bed in which one rests, was inexplicably awful! It appeared to be a king bed, but bore a closer kinship to a trampoline, in that the entire bed shook when my wife or I moved even a little. The sheets were either a very cheap cotton or had been super starched (or, perhaps, both), since the noise they made when they rustled was loud enough to wake you when you were fortunate enough to fall lightly asleep. The prefab shower had mold stains in the seams and all of the faucets were difficult to operate. The shower head worked more like a water hose than a spray. Of the two computers in the lobby business center, one was marked "out of service" and the other wouldn't connect to the internet to allow us to print boarding passes. Fortunately, the woman manning the front desk was kind enough to print them at her computer. Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, the play was fine!
