Rated 4 out of 5 by ConnorC dated rooms
Great staff- always- I stay here 5 or 6 times a year. The bedrooms are dated, public areas nicer. Noisy on side facing I-40. Access to the gym is a great plus (main reason I stay here, even with the $7 fee), but agree with other reviewer that they should have their own fitness center for those who don't need full gym. Food is fine and priced well. Good location. Even has a 2 mile jogging trail right by hotel.

The customer service at this hotel was outstanding. Dean the doorman met us with a smile that lasted throughout my stay. He was warn and welcoming.The check-in did not go as I planned with the 1st person but I quickly found another person who quickly found me a room. I had a little mishap there and Andrea quickly rectified it. Throughout my entire stay I found this to be the BEST CUSTOMER HOTEL SERVICE EVER!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ConnorC nice staff, needs updating
the hotel is older. Staff always very professional. only gym is a very nice full servie fitness center next door, for $7-great for a full work out, but if you just want to run for 30 min on a treadmill, it is steep. Outdoor pool is nice The rooms are a bit beat up, though they have begun to update the bathrooms. lounge/business center are nice. restaurant breakfest buffet is good, other meals not very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ggmjr 2 small "dings" that impact the property
1. I have been at this property for 10 nights over 4 stays so far this year. Twice I actually booked a club level room hoping to get a suite upgrade. To date, I have never gotten a suite upgrade.
2. It is VERY frustrating to be locked out of the club after hours. I work 5p-2a. I cannot get there in the evening, I will not got up for breakfast. You cannot get in after hours, even for a bottle of water.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TaraKiwi Good room, bad food
I was here recently for a conference. While the room with clean and comfortable, the food was not good at all - particularly lunch and dinner. Poor selection of healthy foods and fairly tasteless overall. The shining expection was breakfast for which I had a delicious omelet three mornings in a row.
Also, very easy to get to the highway and anywhere else you might need to go in the Raleigh-Durham area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Travelin49 Check In Policy
There was confusion when checking in and out. Seems, no one had the same directions and had to have three people involved. Eventually it was settled to everyone's satisfaction. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Maryland5 My Experience
Overall, this was a great experience. The majority of the staff went above and beyond to make it a dynamic stay. I did have difficulty getting on the Internet during my stay. The meeting room worked fine, I had difficulty in the room. Overall, I am looking forward to my next visit.

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 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 4 out of 5 by SPGguest13 Great lounge!
The staff in the lounge here is very warm, friendly and welcoming. They always have fresh food and drinks out. Definitely the best SPG lounge in the area!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarolinaRecyclers Very, very nice. Most hotels should take lessons from this hotel's staff members
Stayed here because our work conference was booked here. I usually feel like a hotel is a hotel, they are all about the same. Just give me clean sheets and a decently clean facility and I'm good. However, here after I checked in, I told my husband (who giggled at my comment) "The clerk that checked me in was one of the friendliest, most easy going ladies I have ever dealt with when checking in." Most desk clerks I've dealt are fine, but she was most definitely different. Through the rest of our stay, we found that this hotel was different in many other ways. They simply just just did everything right - not just okay, but very very good. The doormen too - they had a genuine cheery attitude and smile that will have you walking away with a smile and feeling (as corny as it sounds) a bit uplifted!
I wish I could bottle whatever it is that this Sheraton feeds their employees and bring it home for my employees !!

Rated 2 out of 5 by sfklug Good location, needs facilities and services upgrade
Valet forced me to get a new ticket every time I checked the car in and out. In 4 days I went through 14 tickets...was told this was their system... room is tired and needs an upgrade. dirty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MMMCLM Needs work.....
We were fortunate enough to upgrade to a suite. In the first suite we were assigned, the carpet was buckled throughout the living area & bedroom. We asked to move. In the 2nd suite no carpet issues however the sofas need to be replaced. They were completely worn out and dirty. Also, issues with the wallpaper bubbling. Not at all what we expected.

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 4 out of 5 by DiscoTommy Room and Bar
The Air conditioner cycleing on and off was very loud and sounded like the vents were loose in room 118 which kept me awake half the night. I noticed that your Bar was empty all night and i know it was due to the high alcoholic drink prices.$5.25 is too much for 1 beer and $10.00 for 1 drink.Room was set up beautiful with the nice king size bed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bobrob Additional charge
In general our stay was pleasant. Usually, I ask for a room with a refrigerator if available. At everyother hotel we've stayed at this was complimentary on a first come first serve basis. At check out - we were charged $10/day. No one mentioned this fact to us and frankly I did not think to ask. The hotel staff should have mentioned this.

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 5 out of 5 by Jay66 Good Stay....
I am a Plat and this was my first time at this hotel. I've got to say that I was impressed all-around.
Staff was very friendly, I received a decent upgrade, and the club lounge ladies were VERY friendly.
The hotel is in a nice office park with plenty of trails for walking & running. Next time I'm in the RDU area, I will be staying here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lawrence Room lacks some things
Bedside table lacks extra outlets for cell phone chargers, etc. Have to plug them in across the room and get up for phone calls at night. No refrigerator/microwave so ice/water bottles is a headache. If you get ice the night before, it's melted in the ice bucket the next morning. Room lighting is inadequate - very dark w/all lights on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SWconf Conference visit
Hotel was great with the exception of the fitness center. I always like to use the facilities inside the hotel when I travel. At this hotel there was no fitness center inside the building. Next door was a fitness center that was available to use by the hotel guest for a nominal fee of $7. For such a nice hotel I did not expect this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barry00 Room great, bathroom sub-par
The room was great, no refrigerator which was a little unexpected, but a cooler and an ice machine made up for that.
The bathroom suffers low pressure in the upper floors, evident in the toilet and shower drainage. Also the sink suffers from a clog of some sort when we first got there, wish this was caught prior to us checking in.

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 5 out of 5 by Velva38 The hotel met my expectations
I expect cleanliness, comfort and professionalism when I stay at a hotel, and this hotel met these expectations. The room was clean, roomy, and the bed was comfortable. The staff was courteous and provided a list of nearby restaurants and shoppng centers, along with directions. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Peter57 Average conference hotel.
Two items definitely needed improvement - the quality of breakfast and the front desk staff. I ordered off the breakfast menu - the sausage was very cheap, very fatty, the bacon was clumped together, and the pancakes were greasy and undercooked. I had to wait two minutes to get a copy of my bill. Front desk staff never smiled.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Monique Hotel Good for Business Travelers
My overall experience was very good and staff was responsive when I called about not being able to call the front desk. Hotel maintenance arrived within five minutes which was great; however; it made me a bit uncomfortable to notice that the shower head in my room was changed during my stay without any type of notification.

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 3 out of 5 by JRobJ Service was the plus
I found the service at the hotel to be quality. Staff was friendly and responsive.
Me and several colleagues were unable to access the internet via our company issued laptops. That presented a problem to getting work done in the evenings. Amenities were good, however, it's time for a makeover (e.g. carpet).
