Rated 4 out of 5 by SusanandBob Convenient to Research Triangle
With easy access to Interstate 40, this hotel was a convenient mid-point on a long drive. There's not a whole lot for a tourist to see or do in close proximity, but the stay was nice and the staff were friendly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doctor19104 Good for conference but lacking amenities
I attended a 3day professional global health conference at this Sheraton. It is very convenient to the airport. The beds are comfortable and the rooms have been updated. Water and coffee are provided gratis in each room.
There was no minibar nor any food or drinks (other than water) in the room. The beds are comfortable, the shower pressure is acceptable; but the hot water faucet came off in my hand on the bathroom sink.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Concerned13 Worst Suite Ever!!!!
Wall paper coming off walls in suite 133. Carpet dirty. Chairs dirty. Ceilings dirty. When air condition comes on and you are watching TV you can't hear because it is so loud. Front desk staff did not give me all the amenities when staying in a suite. For example: 9th Floor breakfast for suite guests.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizeth04 Extremely pleased!
This hotel exceeded our expectations. My family and I stayed for two nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The staff is very professional and very friendly. The hotel was impeccable and so was our room. Not to mention the food at the restaurant....excellent! Very pleased and will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MMM247 Not the Sheraton Hotel experience I am used to
I was disappointed with this stay. There were dirty socks left in the room behind the curtains and a dirty wash cloth under the chair. Hotel staff were not the usual friendly type - this was especially odd since this stay was in the south. When I called regarding the free continental breakfast, I was told I was not at the right level to receive the benefit but no explanation on how I could get to that level. This is not a typical Starwood experienced.

Great hotel. What you'd expect for a Sheraton. Near the airport makes it also convenient.

Rated 2 out of 5 by guestJuly Staff very unfriendly and not helpful
I stayed in the Club Room floor and the staff assigned during the evening shift assigned in the Club Room were extremely rude. You would think that they would treat you better since you are paying more for the stay. Also, the restaurant staff was argumentative about their menu options.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KCT142 Gym not on site
Staff pleasant but did not inform me gym is not conected to hotel and you need to pay 10 AND bring a photo ID to use. Gym next door staff not pleasant at all. too complicated to deal with at 5:30AM for me. If you want to workout in the morning plan ahead or stay at the other hotels down the road that have free gyms on site.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MrsHacker Nice hotel - Not so nice staff.
We stayed at this hotel this past Friday for one night, as we were traveling home from the beach, and needed to drop my mom off at the airport. We read the reviews of this hotel, so we decided to give this hotel a shot. Well, when we arrived, the parking lot was closed due to re-paving, this wasn't much of an issue, just a further walk, no biggie. We went inside to check in, and the staff was immediately rude to us, they didn't acknowledge our SPG membership at all, they didn't even say "HI", just said "Last name". We asked if they had a luggage cart for our luggage, and they said "NO WE DO NOT" and walked away. The only nice staff member from this hotel was the guy who ended up helping us on the elevator with a luggage cart and helped us in our rooms, and get everything together, he even got us ice, showed us the emergency exits and was VERY nice! The hotel was very loud (yes I understand it's a convention center), which is fine but people slamming doors, screaming, talking loud, and running down the hallways at 2-4am is NOT normal for hotels, in which we were told "it's normal and they can't stop it". Wrong! The pool is nice, it was cold, but the kids warmed up quickly. The rooms were nice, very warm when we got in them but by bedtime they cooled down, the hall way was covered in food and trash, and no one had cleaned it up as of the time we were checking out. This hotel is overall "okay", but I think they need to hire more friendly staff for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sheila2 Have to keep paper receipts
Disappointed that cash given for incidentals was not recorded in computer and therefore I lost $20 because I lost paper receipt I think example of bad bookkeeping. The extra dollar I paid to make up difference for prepaid bill was shown but not the $20. Oh we'll as the clerk said to me. Lesson learned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jason65 This hotel is awesome, very plush
I enjoyed staying at the Sheraton greatly. My only complaints would be that after paying what I paid (and I got a discount) I still had to pay for a mediocre breakfast. Even cheap motels GIVE you breakfast now-a-days. The rooms were perfectly clean, and the beds very comfortable. Everything was GREAT.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rjbour Enjoyed my stay at Sheraton Imperial Hotel
The hotel staff were all friendly and very helpful. Everything was clean and fresh. The Club Room was nice and the food was perfect. My room was as I expected, lots of space, clean, and very comfortable.
The shuttle took our group of 11 to a near by restaurant without problem or delay. Our return ride to the hotel was there within minutes. I can't say enough good things about the staff and hotel.
Everything was Perfect!
Thank you Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center for a great experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by spgwhiz They dont make them like the used to
This is one of those properties that they dont make them like they used to. Wide open lobby and restaurant, very fast elevators on both sides of the property, central air, large bathtubs, and as much hot water as you can take. Sure you can stay at those newfangled sporty hotels opened up in RTP that are showers only and no bathtubs so this place was like a real hotel was supposed to be. The staff is as friendly and well trained as the reviews suggest, I visit here a few times per year and never much see a new face so turnover must be low. Appears to be well run and well managed. There is an actual painting (not picture) of the general manager off to the side in the lobby and according to the painting he has a connection to Brooklyn, a distinct touch. Like I said, they don't make them like they used to.

I recently stayed in the Sheraton Imperial for a conference. The staff was courteous, knowledgeable and went above and beyond to meet our needs. The beds were so comfortable I wanted to take them home with me!!! Rooms and banquet areas were immaculately clean and well maintained.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ben64 May 29th stay
Although I was upgraded to the 7 floor preferred guest level, the room 917 was very noisy at night due to garbage compactor removal (3:00am) as well as the building exterior metal structure was cracking during night as it contracted and cracking in the morning as it expended due to heat from the sun. I had a very disrupting night of sleep. The air conditioning in this room was also very noisy during the start and stop sequence, to the point where I jumped couple of time as I did not expected this type of noise from a room AC.

Rated 2 out of 5 by martimal Service is inconsistent
Front desk service is trending down. I've stayed at this hotel over 35 times in the past year. They forgot to provide me my corporate breakfast coupons on my last stay and never apologized, acknowledged that they will send my folio via email 3 times and didn't do it until I called. When I requested a power cord for a meeting, they didn't send it up until we called a manager. On the phone right now and the person was rude. Again, no acknowledgement of not sending my bill and waited for over 5 minutes. Not sure what is happening with this hotel but considering to switch.
