Stayed at the Marriott City Center in Durham, NC overnight June 13th because we were attending the American Idol concert at DPAC and did not want to drive 100 miles home afterwards. DPAC is only about a 3 block walk from the Marriott so we did not have to drive OR take a taxi. That was a wonderful Perk.
From Check in to Check out, this hotel was wonderful. The staff from the Valet that parked our car to the check in people to the housekeepers to the host and wait staff and cooks in the restaurant were above the top. Every one went out of their way to help us. For example, I had cut my hand when we went out to eat and it was bleeding and I could not seem to get the bleeding stopped. Of course, we had no bandaids. The wonderful lady behind the counter found me some supplies in their first aid kit that I was able to use. They did not have to do that.
Also, I am on a very specific special diet and the restaurant bent over backwards to accommodate my needs.
Everyone was friendly and helpful.
The room was very nice. The hotel is older, but it does not matter. The furnishings were updated. The room was very clean. The bed was very very comfortable. Nice Flat screen TV with plenty of stations. You can even rent movies from off the TV. The water pressure was great.
So many places to eat within walking distance of the Marriott. The Tobacco Warehouse is within walking distance and is right across the street from DPAC. We ate at Tyler's and enjoyed the Grilled Chicken Salad and Salmon salad respectively. They have a large variety of Beer on Tap.
Was so nice not to have to worry about driving home after the show.
We will definitely visit the Marriott again when we are visiting Durham again.
