We've stayed several times and have always had a delightful experience - feels like being in a fine European boutique hotel. Very comfortable room, great food, excellent service, appreciate free parking, lovely gracious staff, convenient location - look forward to returning!

Made the mistake too many times of grabbing an expensive hotel at RDU or in downtown Raleigh with minimal amenities to serve the needs of a business trip. Stumbled upon this castle because those bland hotels were full and I got a better price than the ones close to airport. The lobby is staged with high back chairs simulating thrones;...

I am very picky about hotels and was very comfortable at this one. Clean rooms, comfortable bed and very friendly staff. This year I need to make monthly trips to Durham and this will be my go to place.

We found this place looking for a pet friendly hotel on a recent trip. It is but it is so much more also. The staff were truly warm and kind...when we arrived late with our two big dogs they arranged food from the kitchen for us and offered amenities including a doggie room service menu of treats. The place is...

With such a great restaurant (Il Palio) they could not have had a hotel with rooms on a lower level of quality. Easy access with private parking. Extremely nice people at the desk and an elegant atmosphere give you a first impression that won't be disappointed at all once you will reach the room. Ours was absolutely perfect and clean....

The accommodations are beautiful, but it's the staff who stand out. They are always smiling, greet you, and are so very helpful. It's hard to find places where people seem to really enjoy what they do and have a cheerful attitude. If you want a lovely room and a pleasant experience, this is your place!

My husband and I spent New Year's Eve at the Siena Hotel, and it was like Mary Poppins: practically perfect in every way. We opted for the "Grand Romance Weekend" package, which includes a junior suite room, a $100 gift certificate at the hotel's wonderful Italian restaurant called Il Palio, a $40 credit for breakfast (either in room or in...
