This is a Basic Marriott. Spotlessly clean with comfortable king bed. Bar closes early at 12 midnight. Employees super nice. Food basic. Very close to airport. Very quiet location except the noisy air conditioning system which starts and stops with a roar.

I stayed at the Courtyard in Durham for a business trip, mostly because it was the closest hotel to my work. While I wouldn't say anything is particularly wrong with it, I also wouldn't say anything is particularly good about it. It is basically an older hotel that hasn't seen any renovations in a while. For example the bed wasn't comfortable, The one elevator (heaven forbid if it ever breaks down) clunked around as the door opened and closed, the Internet was almost slower than dial up, and when it came to Internet connectivity, there was no WiFi, only wired.

The only thing that was good, was the breakfast buffet in the morning, at only $6,95 for all you can eat, complete with made to order omelets, it was a great deal to boot.

I stayed at the Marriott RTP this weekend on a road trip with my church. The hotel staff was very friend and hospital. Laronte Bryant made a point to introduce himself to the group and make sure we were accommodated. Overall the staff went above and beyond for such a large group. The rooms were spacious and immaculate as well. There was even an awesome decorated pumpkin display in the lobby.

I was part of a church group that stayed at the Marriott. We received excellent service from Laronte B. Our rooms were extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable! Also, the gentleman who provided our coffees and teas in the morning wasn't overwhelmed by the 50 or so choir members asking for tea. I believe his name was Vaughn. He was very very kind and completed an excellent experience.

My only complaint is that due the hotel being very booked because of a football game, we had to wait about 30 minutes for our rooms to be ready.

I was on a business trip, and stayed at this Courtyard for one night. It was clean, and no surprises, still in the "old" style of Courtyard, which I prefer to the new and improved version. The staff was friendly and helpful, the only problem I had was navigating around the side streets nearby to get to the entrance of this hotel, just it's proximity to a busy street and the need to know that there was a back way in past the Residence Inn next door. Morning was a continental breakfast, that was good, plenty of fresh fruit, oatmeal, and good coffee, good service... Would stay here again when in the area.

Room Tip: Back side of the hotel faces the highway, so a room on the front side is my preferred location.

Room was clean enough, property is definitely showing signs of age, but it is better than some of the other old-Courtyards I've stayed at. Admittedly, I tried to book the newer Courtyard property closer to the Airport and it was full. That is a newer style location and I would gladly pay a higher rate for a cleaner/newer hotel.

No issues, and it was not unclean, it is just aging. good location off the Interstate.
