I need recommendations for a place to stay in Raleigh, NC
Posted 18 March 2013 - 07:19 PM
Things to know:
I only stay in Marriott Hotels
I like lots of dining options that are easy to access from the hotel (either by walking, or a short drive).
I need a place that is centralized in the city, where I can access major highways, etc...
Thanks in advance!

Downtown...lot of food options. Catch the R to any other areas for great restaurants. 5 minutes from I-40. Others are on the north side of the beltline, which means you have to go east or west about 10-15 minutes to get back to I-40

The other is near Duke Raleigh hospital and near North Hills mall and closer to downtown to get to lots of better restaurants, BUT it's near the beltline. Don't know how old it is and how that one is. You're right at the inner beltline and can get to most anything fast. The other is on the outer beltline area and while nice right at the mall...that's about it.
I'd say a lean to the one off Wake Forest Rd, but not by much.

Only areas of concern should be near Wake Med area and into town from there...and around the Moore Union Square area and heading south/southeast from there. You'll notice there are some issues around Triangle Town center mall/minicity area that I warned you about.

But seriously, if you can't do the downtown one, go for the North Raleigh one. Nice/rich area.

I've stayed at the Marriott downtown and it's fine. I'm leaving this craphole tomorrow and going to a Hilton Garden Inn to get a nicer room for half the price.
