Rated 4 out of 5 by ESA13 Great beds!
The room was extremely comfortable and clean, especially the beds. Super comfortable! I would have like to see some other casual food options. The downtown Raleigh area is not very active on weekends. Many restaurants and stores were not open.
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoeyGTO STAFF AND FACILITIES
Very friendly, excellent staff especially at check in. Made us feel like valued customers.
Common areas were very classy and "high end".
Hospitality center was unavailable which was disappointing.
Room appointments were average at best. Could not adjust the room temperature controls. Room was very cold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Librarian18 Great Hotel for Conference
My husband and I spent three nights at the Sheraton Downtown Raleigh, while I attended a conference there. Our room was nice and clean, although a little small. Everything worked fine, except the fan in the bathroom was a little noisy, and was not on a separate switch from the light. The conference facilities were wonderful. No problems finding the rooms for the workshops and sessions, and the food furnished by the hotel was really good. While there are many restaurants nearby, there are no "convenience" stores or drug stores open later in the day or after lunch on Saturday to get toiletries, sodas or snacks. Everything closes early, which is really strange.There is literally no shopping nearby. Lots of museums within walking distance, though. Three blocks from Amtrak, so it is very convenient for that type of travel. Overall, it was a good experience.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lovejoy Very poor and under renovation
When I booked this hotel I was not informed of renovations taking place. No bar or restaurant available. Over $200 a night! Staff were apologetic but this is simply not good enough. Still a picture of the bar on website and no mention of ongoing work either. Certainly will not revisit this hotel again (even after makeover) and will only choose a Sheraton hotel anywhere when there is no other choice

Rated 3 out of 5 by Reasonableperson The band played on....
Until 10:30 outside, in the area. Don't stay here if you need to get a good nights rest. While the staff were willing to accommodate with earplugs and moving me (while I was already in bed) outdoor bands should not be playing after 9 pm NEXT DOOR to a motel. That is a neighbor issue that needs to be addressed by motel management.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NAOMI37 This hotel made a difference
I stay in a fair amount of hotels over the course of a year for business so the little things that are at each location really make a difference .
I was really impressed by the friendliness of the staff at your location , but the extra things like water bottles in the rooms were really great .
Please continue what you do ! I am sure it will make a differnece for someone else too . Thanks for a great experience .

Very nice hotel, with friendly staff, great housekeeping, comfortable lobby. It was the perfect location for the International Bluegrass Music Assoc venues. There's a nice restaurant attached (Jimmy V's.)
Close to the capitol and museums.

Front desk should have written directions when someone calls whether it be either from the north/south. They should also know what time the coffee shop opens.
Chair in room had giant stain as well as a cigar burned into the base of the tv. Lounge smelled like wet dog.

Great restaurant directly connected to the hotel. It was not setup for room delivery or take out since it just opened. It was very busy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stengie86 Wonderful staff, great food and and comfortable stay
I stayed here on New Year's Eve and found the staff to be so friendly and accommodating! The next morning we ate brunch and Vinny's Osteria, which is the restaurant attached the hotel. The Eggs Benedict and Bloody Marys were certainly quite satisfying and delicious. And the Margerita and Rocco pizzas had this New Yorker defying her vow to never eat pizza outside the NYC metro area! Wonderful hotel with awesome staff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Libby48 why wasn't there housecleaning available?
I was disappointed that my room wasn't cleaned during my stay. I did put the "Green" tag on the door indicating that I did not need my towels changed. But I didn't know that also meant the bed would not be made, the trash & recycling not emptied, and no refill packs for the in-room coffee maker.
I also presented two programs and neither meeting room was set up as I'd requested in writing.

This hotel was a prefect location for us while working the World of Bluegrass show. In close proximity to all the locations we needed to be, friendly staff, and great accommodations. We will be back next year.

Here for a wedding. Professionalism of stay at check in was amazing...off to a great start. Asked for any specific requests...found a quiet corner room, map of the downtown area, free parking pass, extra towels, etc. comfortable bed and cleanliness through out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jean37 This hotel has excellent features for wedding guests.
This is not a false review like I saw on Good Morning America. This is based on an actual stay.
The king-size bed was the most comfortable bed I had ever slept in...covering up with the nicest cleanest linens.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rgerbertxn Good but pricey for what you get
I normally stay here when I go to Raleigh but this hotel needs some serious updating! On my latest stay -
old/dirty carpet in the room. Scuffed paint on closet door. TV didn't work either.
Staff has always been super friendly.

I have stayed here before and each time it is like a different experience. I missed the breakfast and the reasonably price cafe on the second floor, but the setting is nice and peaceful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TerTro Personnel is nice
The employees were super friendly and helpful. Your business center printer was down for several days, the closet doors in the room wouldn't move...too close to carpet, and the caulking in the bathroom needed to be redone. no way to valet park and check in, had to go to parking garage across street, not so safe for women. otherwise a decent stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Business29 Much better than most Sheratons
This si my third Sheraton in a month and it was so much better than the others. Staff was friendly, helpful and willing to go the extra mile to help. The bed was extra comfortable and after a quick trip from the engineer the a/c worked great and cooled our room beautifully. Easy walking distance to many places. Really a very nice hotel.

Thank you for your email asking about our stay this past weekend at the Sheraton Raleigh Downtown hotel. We truly enjoyed being at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel. Your front desk clerk, Bianca, was extremely helpful, courteous, and friendly. I commend hotels and businesses that greet you with a smile and enjoy serving their customers. I have always enjoyed being at Sheraton hotels and the Raleigh Downtown hotel is one I enjoy as well. Your service was commendable and the attendants were more than willing to do whatever it took to make our stay comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Myra08 from another starwood associate
I travel alot for work and stay in all starwood brands. Some Sheratons are not up to par but this one is. The staff at desk and bellstand are very nice and accommodating. the only thing I wish was better was the parking or they had valet. It rained while I was there and had to walk across in the rain with no umbrella.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happystay Hotel has the best people
Hotel is showing a little wear in a few places but the people make this hotel top notch. Reported my AC was not working and staff went out of their way to help me realize it was my user error without making me feel like an idiot. I was impressed to see that they had a lift at pool - my mother needs a lift to swim.
