excellent experience

arrived late but had excellent service at the desk an comfortable room with very comfortable bed.In the dark, it was a little difficult to see signs to the self-parking lot. Location was not as close as it could have been to following day's meetings, but that was not hotel's fault.

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 Extremely outdated.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.
