Stayed at the beginning of January, 2014 for two weeks with a large group for business. I used to come down to Raleigh about once a year, but this was my first trip in a few years, and my first stay here. I was amazed. The hotel itself is new, clean, modern, and in a VERY convenient location to the airport and Route 540. The room I stayed in had a small kitchen area, along with a living room and a separate bedroom. Everything in the room was great. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was huge. When I travel I like to be able to workout if possible - and the Embassy Suites here does not disappoint with their exercise room. There are treadmills and elliptical machines, and one multi-exercise cable machine. However, what sets this one apart is that there are a couple of adjustable benches, and dumbbell sets up to 50lbs. I travel quite a bit, and seeing the dumbbell sets is rare. There is also a pool and hot tub that I never went into, but a bunch of my co-workers did and they had no complaints.
If you get hungry there is a nice menu for room service, or you can go downstairs to the bar/restaurant area and order something direct. They even have a pizza oven right there that they will put together and cook a personal pizza for you with. If you have dinner plans somewhere else, you will still want to head down to the bar area for the Manager's Special every night from 5:30 to 7:30. Upon check-in you receive a couple of tickets for free drinks that are good during that time frame.
As good as everything is about this hotel, I have to say the biggest thing that separates them from any of the other similarly rated hotels in the area is their staff. Everyone is so friendly, and willing to go out of their way to help you in any way that they can. Special thanks to Natalie, Wally, Jenny, and Turner, along with the rest of the staff, for making the time I spent there with my group as nice as possible while being away from home.
Will definitely stay here again.
