Durham Marriott City Center

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed there one night, and the rooms are clean and modern with a great location within walking distance to lots of great downtown sites. However we left our car with the valet (which is a fair price of $12) and when we picked it up our gas card was missing. Stolen out of the middle console. So unfortunate because we tipped our valet well, and although we can't be sure who did it, it made us skeptical about staying here again.

Always a pleasant stay at this Hotel. Located I walking distance to shops , restuarants , DPAC and the ball field .

GReat stay for just a quick business trip to the durham area. Great location. Breakfast buffet was a nice-to-have

My husband and I stayed this past weekend. We were able to walk to the Tobacco Road Cafe for lunch and catch some college football games before enjoying a Vienna Tieng concert next door at the Carolina Theater that night. This is the only downtown Durham hotel that is close to lots of attractions and provides all the amenities needed.

Had a very nice stay and would return to stay there again. Only downer is there was no pool but otherwise top notch hotel!

The Marriott was perfect for what I was looking for in Durham. The location is great. There are several bars and restaurants within walking distance, and it was easy to get to Duke. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable. I also appreciated the free parking across the street. I would definitely stay here again.

I booked here because I wanted to be close to the social life, but not to far from Duke's West Campus... It was a perfect location! Will def stay here again when I travel down here!

Clean rooms and friendly staff were a plus. The location is within a close distance to most restaurants and bars. Downside is there is no on site pool or hot tub.

The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean. Overall not a flashy place but convenient for seeing a show at Durham's Performing Art Center and the bed was comfy. Parking is offsite, but close.

Friendly staff, clean room, comfortable stay. You can't ask for more!

The small things like the orange flavored ice water near the elevators make it a nice, friendly place to stay. Also the proximity to the Durham Bulls baseball park add to the convenience. We also were able to make a short drive to Chapel Hill for some world famous barbecue.

Very friendly staff, great central location in downtown Durham.

Our room was comfortable and clean. We were in town for a wedding and extra time was limited. Went shopping at the Brightleaf Square shops for small items to take home but didn't find anything. The shops were more eclectic. We did have a wonderful dinner in the hotel restaurant, but there was no 'complimentary' breakfast and their cold breakfast buffet was $14. I'm glad we got the room at a reasonable rate!

Friendly staff. Perfect locstion for the trip activities

My husband and I were just exploring North Carolinas so we spent several nights in several hotels. The price for this one was really good for what it offers. Clean room, confertable beds and they offer free pakring, if you park by yourself or valet at $10/day. Great location.
