How very happy I was to discover the Oakwood during a recent business visit -- a welcome respite from the standardization of less than exciting hotels! The hosts cld not have been more welcoming. We were most appreciative of their prompt action to move us to an upgraded back-facing room room when an unexpected water main break on the street in front left crews working late. The bedrooms with modern baths, are beautifully appointed with antiques and the gas fireplaces in each, a rare treat! The Inn is within easy walking distance to town, and the many surrounding streets of heritage homes make this a terrific destination for those who appreciate architectural treasures from Raleigh's past!
