I stayed here with a friend this past weekend, and as soon as I checked into the hotel, the first thing i texted to my buddy who hadn't gotten to the hotel yet is, my god, this isn't a doubletree, it's a motel 6 with Doubletree furniture! now don't get me wrong, this hotel is perfectly fine, but it's not a Doubletree. It's a traditional motel building, complete with old Soviet era-style concrete motel balconies with the parking along the side of the building. the sliding glass balcony doors are also old and hard to work, and they don't block out much of the outside sounds. there was some street work going on across the street, and it was very loud in the room, even with the balcony door closed. the bathrooms are also really small and are clearly motel style bathrooms. but that being said, they fixed up the front lobby of the hotel nicely, and they have the nice Doubletree furniture in the rooms, so the rest of the rooms are nice. The beds are actually great and very comfortable. and everything is clean, and the people working at the hotel are really nice and helpful too. the location is okay. it's near the NC State campus and is a little less than a mile away from downtown Raleigh. there are a few bars and restaurants a very short walk from the hotel.
