Balcony was wonderful. Clean comfortable room, friendly staff.

Clean rooms and facilities...would stay there again

It was very close to downtown Raleigh and the mall. I was very pleased with the location. The room was great and pretty comfortable for my girls and I. I did feel that the breakfast buffet was very expensive and the food was not hot.

The staff was excellent. Cynthia, who worked the desk, made sure the guests’ needs were met. I wish there was a pool.

Nice hotel. It was in close proximity to all the places I had to go and within walking distance of good restaurants.

Everything nice but my wife tripped on an exposed pipe near the back outdoor stairs. She fell but did not hurt herself. You might want to move this.

Overall nice place. It's reasonably priced and walking distance or quick drive to a lot of things. The building itself is kind of old looking from the outside but the rooms have been updated recently. The rooms have balconies which are rusty but you can't use them anyway, which is pretty standard these days. We enjoyed our stay here.

On our recent visit to NC State for parent's weekend we wanted a hotel close to campus. We were hoping to find a hotel that also included breakfast in the room rate however this hotel does not. Our evening was compromised by a room filled with a very loud group. We believe that they had their balcony door open, in addition to hearing them through the walls. As the hour grew later, the crowd got louder. Our first call to the front desk was after 11 pm. Our third call to the front desk was after 12:30 am. The group finally quieted sometime after 1 am. That third call seemed to be more of an irritant to the front desk, which seemed odd. Parking is free however is not covered. Smoking is allowed just outside the door leading to the parking lot.

The hotel is within walking distance to NC State's campus and downtown Raleigh with places to eat and sightsee. In a quiet and safe neighborhood, very few students but only because I was here in July. The staff at check in gave me a warm chocolate chip cookie too! Definitely one of the better places I've stayed in Raleigh.

This hotel was almost perfect! It was very attractive and clean. Staff were friendly.

I stayed near NC State for a conference and it is in close distance. Parking is easy and check in is fast. I would hope they had complimentary bottle water in the room

Very Good Service at the hotel. Great Staff. Would stay there again.

This is an average hotel that is close to NC State. The location is good with a few decent restaurants and bars within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

-Arrived just after 3pm check-in time no cookies. -Room air conditioner very noisy bathroom vent dirty. -Mattress very uncomfortable needs replacing. -Door keys worked poorly. -Housekeeping did a very good job. -Excellent central location. -Will look for a better run Raleigh hotel on our next visit.

The rooms are old. I can hear everything outside and the double beds were very small and uncomfortable. It's way overpriced for the rooms. I would stay elsewhere.

We had a pleasant experience at this hotel. The bed and room was soo comfortable, friendly staff, and fantastic convenient location, with a beautiful view of downtown Raleigh without the hustle and bustle of being downtown. Lots of food and shopping choices within walking distance. The only downside is there is no mini fridge, but that was only a minimal obstacle. Will definitely stay here again!

I went to this hotel for a seminar. I thought that since this was a Hilton hotel that the quality of service and customer satisfaction would be great. Not really at all at this location. On both nights drunk people ran up and down the halls and on both nights the front desk staff and security guard did nothing to stop these people. At one point the front desk staff stopped answering when I called from my room. I had to go downstairs and demand to have my room changed. Dont stay here. Stay some where else.
