Stayed two nights for a business trip. This is an average Marriott located in the downtown area of Durham. Positives: I enjoyed the complimentary valet parking and the comfortable beds. Front desk staff was very friendly. Negatives: I was stopped by two people asking for money within a couple blocks of the hotel which made me a bit nervous to explore the rest of the area. Wished there was a pool at the hotel. Internet service was spotty at best. May have been the smallest hotel bathroom I've seen in a long time. The door barely makes it past the comode.
