A few weeks ago, as part of our Raleigh, North Carolina press trip, we had the opportunity to stay at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel, which is located right downtown. Although we were only there for a short time, we really enjoyed our stay, and would recommend a stay at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel with kids.
Our stay at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel was complimentary as part of the press trip.
The Sheraton Raleigh Hotel With Kids
The Location of the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel
If you are planning a Raleigh family vacation, the Sheraton is a great spot. It’s located right downtown, and is within walking distance of some popular attractions, including the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, the North Carolina Museum of History, and the Videri Chocolate Factory. It’s about 20-25 minutes from the Raleigh airport.
The Rooms at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel
We arrived at the hotel at 1am, due to a delayed evening flight from Boston. We were able to get quickly checked in and up to our room. Rooms at the Sheraton Raleigh were renovated in 2016, and are very modern. Our room had a sofa, a small table, and a desk, along with a coffee maker, a complimentary bottle of water, and a hairdryer. Other room types club rooms, executive suites, and a presidential suite. We found the beds to be extremely comfortable – something I always like in a hotel.
Amenities at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel
The Sheraton Raleigh Hotel offers some family-friendly amenities, including an indoor heated pool and fitness center. There’s a Sheraton Club on the 17th floor that is offered to those in the club rooms, as well as SPG Platinum Members. SPG gold and silver members can redeem points for club access.
There are also workstations in the lobby that can be used for printing and internet access.
Food at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel
While we only had one meal (breakfast on our first day) at the hotel, it was delicious. The hotel offers a full service restaurant, Jimmy V’s, which is located in the lobby. It offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and has a wonderful bar area as well. For quicker service, there’s a small coffee bar, also in the lobby. In addition, room service from Jimmy V’s is offered for much of the day.
