Rated 5 out of 5 by Marshman Great Place to Stay in Raleigh
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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LMK1907 Decent hotel stay
Generally, this hotel is nice and up-to-date. I really liked their option to stay "green" by declining housekeeping services, which goes the extra mile by presenting incentives to do so. Housekeeping services and food left something to be desired.

The staff was great. The manager was friendly. The front desk staff made me feel welcome. I will always choose Sheraton and return to see my extended family. Rooms were comfortable and area was convenient to our destination. Great job!

Rated 4 out of 5 by R704 Needs Some Work
Hotel is very nice but I am concerned that, after paying over $130 per night for my stay, the hotel would nickle and dime me and ask that I pay for 1) parking at a rather exorbitant fee and 2) internet at $10/ day for shoddy connections!

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.

This hotel is always friendly and welcoming. The excellent wait staff are helpful and follow up to ensure your satisfaction with their services. The rooms are exactly as expected, comfortable, clean, and well equipped.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dissapointed101 Time for a major renovation
Rooms were old and "worn out". Rusty fixtures, closet door off the track etc.... Only two towels provided, had to request additional towels for morning showers. Staff appeared to have a lack of enthusiasm toward guests.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Banjomaker Great place to stay
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.

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 5 out of 5 by CPAMike GREAT STAY !
Was recognized and upgraded at no charge to club facilities. Hotel was crowded with convention and prom kids, but never noisy or inconvenient. Hotel staff were excellent and recommended that we attend a nearby art fair. They had excellent local references etc. Great - would definitely stay again. Club room was nice and had all the amenities of the NYC Sheratons....

My experience was wonderful from check-in to departure. The staff and their attentiveness made my trip pleasurable from beginning to end.
I can't wait until all of the renovations are complete!

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 2 out of 5 by candl2014 Needs improvement
Check-in at arrival was great. Staff even offered a roll out bed which worked out perfect. Once in the room, entered the restroom and the toilet was running and would not flush. Contacted front desk. The room was extremely hot. Adjusted the thermostat. Left for several hours - returned to a room that was still hot. Contacted the front desk. Maintenance arrived, identified the problem and made a temporary fix to cool the room. Decided to order room service. No menu. Called front desk. Ordered our meal and was told to expect a 45 minute wait which turned out to be more like two hours. Very disappointed in our stay at the Sheraton.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rockytopron Nickle and Dime you to death
The hotel itself is great, but they nickle and dime you to death with the extra charges. The rooms are price enough without having to charge extra for internet and parking.

Good business hotel- simple and no frills. This was my third stay here. Walkable location downtown. Minus the construction it is an enjoyable place to stay.

This hotel was very convenient to all that I needed in the Raleigh downtown area. Convenient parking, food, and across the street from my place of business.

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 3 out of 5 by Dedyva Nice Hotel
This hotel is very nice, the beds and pillows were good too. I was dis-appointed that there was not a microwave or fridge in the room. I also thought the morning cafe should have stayed open until the evening for small refreshments, since there was only on other restaurant on the premises.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JED12 This hotel needs improvements
While the stay at this hotel was fine and nothing particularly went wrong, there were elements of staying at a $250/night facility that I expected to be nicer. My room seemed very run down. The bathroom door had a terrible paint job, the door handle was loose and the showerhead cover was coming off the tile. It seemed grungy to me. I understand that there are improvements on the way, but those types of aesthetic features are simple fixes that should never be visible to a guest.
I’d like to say the banquet staff was wonderful. Very friendly, personable and accommodating.
I also received many mentions of the bartending at Jimmy V’s to be less than pleasant to guests.

Rated 2 out of 5 by UnhappyGuest12345 Not who I was expecting to be treated
I will start by saying the only GOOD thing about this hotel (apart from it's location to the convention center) was the BELLHOP staff and the HOUSECLEANING staff.
When we arrived, the long haired blond at the front desk was who assisted us (her name can be provided to management if requested since it's on my invoice) she was totally rude. I would ask her questions and she'd cut me off or respond with attitude. I requested the total that was being charged to my card and her response was "I don't know" ..... seriously? You've got a computer in front of you and you can't tell me what you're charging on my credit card?? When we requested a feather free room due to a SEVERE hospitalizing allergy, she didn't even sound like she cared or was listening. We then had to wait OVER an HOUR and had to call the front desk 2 more times before someone came. Meanwhile, the guest with the allergy is lingering in the hallway because they couldn't be in the room..... That was only check in on Thursday..... Sunday AM we discovered a ROACH, still alive, in our room (next to the beds we slept on!)
I would've gone to the front desk about it, but after the lackluster customer service at check-in, I found it doubtful they would've done more than just laugh about it. Basically, I'll never stay in this hotel again (which is a shame because your staff that does all the hardwork--bellhops & cleaning staff) were very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rune Anniversary Plans Gone Wrong...but Made More than Right
I had planned an anniversary stay at this hotel about a month prior to the stay. My wife and I had our wedding reception here, and spent our first night as a married couple together at Sheraton Raleigh.
While making the reservation, I had made a special request for the exact same room we had on our wedding night, and it was confirmed by the staff shortly after the reservation.
I followed up the day prior to the stay to make sure the request would be honored, and once again, the staff assured me that I would have my requested room.
When time came to check in, however, I found out that my requested accomodations had been taken by another guest, and we would have to spend our anniversary in another room.
Having explained that I specifically requested this room and my reason, the front desk (Holly) recognized my request in their system, then promptly without any hesitation, comped the stay.
In addition, they offered to send up a plate of chocolate-covered strawberries and a bottle of champagne (the latter of which I declined). Regardless, their response totally took me aback and exceeded all my expectations.
Accommodations were well-appointed, and in great condition, as expected. And while the club lounge was under renovations, the front desk provided vouchers for Jimmy V's Osteria, who had a very nice breakfast available until 11am.
Thank you again for a wonderful experience, Sheraton Raleigh. We'll be back again another year.
