Exceptional experience

I booked the room a few days prior to my stay and the great rate I got left me wondering what the hotel would be like. I was VERY pleasantly surprised when I walked in. Greeted by welcoming, kind staff and then by a clean, quiet room. Had a great night of sleep. While it's not in plain site off the highway, I will certainly look into staying again.

Decent value hotel

Hotel appearance and lobby is great along with the pool and fitness gym right next door for use of hotel guest. The room on the other hand was not so impressive with the exception of the bed. Extremely outdated. Mold in the ceiling tiled In the bathroom. The room is very large but tons of empty space that needs more stuff. They could probably add a kitchen or something. Looking for a budget four star this is your place. Get what u pay for.

clean, executive

Pretty good, although somehow a noisy party came through at 2 am, but security thankfully took care of it. Super clean, good breakfast spot and Starbucks downstairs.

Very clean

The Sheraton is a nice hotel, very clean. My stay was short, but the front desk was very helpful and when there were some noisy folks coming in late (arguing in the hall and not acting courteous at 1:30 am on a week night) I called downstairs and security came up right away to take care of it. I feel as though this should not have happened though, this loud and obnoxious clientele shouldn't be anywhere near the Sheraton.

Quick College Visit

My son and I traveled to Raleigh-Durham to visit several colleges in the area. The hotel was convenient to the airport, clean with friendly staff. The hotel restaurant was just okay.

Overnight Stay

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room service food was fabulous and reasonably priced (the greek salad was amazing). The vending machines are frustrating; I had to try three different floors before I could buy a drink. The water pressure in the showers was not good. There's a massaging shower head, but not enough water pressure to use it. The mattress was incredibly comfortable, but the pillows were not. The room has a large desk that is perfect for spreading out work.

Nice hotel,but need improvement

We visited Durham-Chapel Hill for 3 days, stayed in this hotel. It was nice,just had a little problem when we got out the high way. They don't have a clearly sigh to show you which way will go to the hotel,little hard for the 1st time visiting there. Otherwise,it's a nice hotel to stay. convenient to everywhere. The room was clean,the bed was very comfy,TV has lots HD channels.Service was excellent. But the bathroom counter was a little too small, not enough space for 2 people. The shower was little dated,shower head was too small, not comfy for the showers. The restaurant look pretty,but the food was not the sheraton's standard. We will prefer to drive outside to look for nice restaurant to eat,even for the breakfast. I'll stay there again,but I'll never eat at their restaurant again.
