If you're passing through and need a bed, this is a good place to spend the night. The service is friendly (I hope the lady behind the reception gets to write her book) and above all, the rooms are large and clean with good beds. Breakfast is included and quick if you want to get on the road again. Parking is easy and free.

This hotel is the Best Fairfield in which I have ever stayed. Bed was very comfortable, the shower was hot, the room was spacious. There is a fridge and microwave in the room. Indoor pool was perfect for a quick swim. They have a large breakfast area where you can relax/work anytime day or night. Breakfast, I had the cheese omelette, was much better than some other high-end hotels. The wifi was strong throughout the hotel. The hotel has an indoor atrium from the ground floor to the top floor. There is a small, but more than adequate bar that is open in the evenings. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate was available 24 hours. The staff was very friendly - like we were a guest in their own house. Restaurants are across the street. It was perfect!!!!

I travel to RDU once a month and this is my favorite place to stay. The rates are reasonable, it's close to shopping and restaurants, and it's close to a gym I visit (and 1 exit away from my corporate office!) They have a good breakfast (free) with the Greek yogurt I love. The staff are friendly and is a safe neighborhood. Close to highway and gas station also right next door to fuel up before taking the rent car back to the airport!

There is only one thing you need to know about this hotel...Drew the bartender is the absolute best. Room was great and nice sitting area outside with a fire. I had a great time and will be back for my next visit to GE.

We stayed here while attending a DPAC performance. It was great. Hotel seems more upscale than your typical Fairfield INn and Suites. Breakfast was actually awesome. I usually hate hotel buffet eggs but these were fluffy and great. They had options for us GF DF people...and our group of 4 left full. Decor is nice in this hotel too. Close by Southpoint which is a GREAT shopping area.

Top floor(6th) looking out on the Bonefish Grill and a short walk to Chick Fil-A and the SouthPoint Mall. Checked in at 1105 on Monday June 12, and my room was ready, as was Mary Jane at the front desk, always ready to assist, with a spontaneous smile when called upon, no matter what the inquiry. Excellent breakfast buffet with workers always ready to refresh whatever began to empty. Coffee hot 24 hours a day, and excellent ice water with True lemon packets available. Only gripe, mattresses showing their age, a bit soft, but no other negatives.

One night-stay on a business trip, and it was a great choice. I walked to Target and bought snacks/drinks for my in-room fridge. Walked to the next-door mall for dinner. Enjoyed a wonderful selection at the full free breakfast (including fruit-to-go for my meeting!!!). The room was fine: bed firm and comfy, bathroom clean and good water pressure, etc. Interior spaces of the hotel are interesting: rooms along a hallway that opens to the great room/lobby below, kind of like an outdoor motel but enclosed. The very best part was the staff. They were AWESOME. Check-in was great. Five minutes in my room and someone knocked on my door to make sure I was pleased. Later that night and the next morning the same two people greeted me by name and gave me a warm send-off. I felt very special, and that's a rare treat for a chain hotel. Well Done!

I love this hotel! The staff is super friendly, Laurie and Diana were super accommodating and we're quick to help me locate the best of the nearby dining and shopping! We ended each night at the awesome bar - full service, and some time around the fire pit. Will definitely recommend this place to anyone!

My first stay at this location. Check in person was functional but not friendly. Room looked clean but there was BLACK MOLD on the shower curtain liner (see photos). Check out staff was friendly, and receptive to constructive criticism regarding the bathroom. Otherwise comfortable stay. Didn't eat breakfast so can't comment on it.

What an amazing hotel!! Definitely not what we expected. I love the trendy upscale look. What a gem!! The hotel staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. This is my first time in Durham, and Laurie was very patient as I asked for several suggestions. Comfortable bed and clean rooms. We will definitely stay here again.
