Providing easy access to Raleigh-Durham International Airport via the Dan K Moore Freeway, Courtyard Raleigh Midtown is conveniently located near William Peace University, North Carolina Museum of Art and North Carolina State University.
We were hoping for the suites with a microwave and minifridge but this is a regular hotel room. It was basic but super-clean--clean grout, tile, floors, carpets, and beds--however, my bed or maybe one of my pillows did smell faintly of pee after a while. However, they advertise clean air and they provide it. I wear a reading headlamp that reveals every particle of dust in the air and there was barely any. I'd recommend this place to those bothered by allergies, dust, perfume, chemicals like air ""Freshener"", etc. It's also easy to get in and out of the parking lot whereas the Hilton can be a pain with its large, crowded lot. Its' an easy run up to the Duke hospital on Wake Forest or around the corner to Rex.We didn't call about the neighbors making a racket all night, guess we should have. The place does seem like a bit of a party hotel or maybe a place where people live in lieu of student housing. However, there was nothing creepy going on on our floor. I think the management would have been helpful if we had called. When checking out the elevator stopped working (again) and a very helpful maintenance guy helped me carry my bags down the stairs.
