Yesterday I was frustrated - I wanted to be witty and clever but I ahve so much trouble typing on this thing that it was all I could do to get the outline of what we did down. Today will be even harder- I would have to be a poet to even begin to describe what the day was like. We spent 8 hours on the train from Ankorage to Denali- this is nothing like 8 hours on a plane. The first floor of the train held the restaurant, the bathrooms and the gift shop. The seating was all ...
... from an animal called a musk ox - the animal sheds its wool and the native women collect the wool and weave it into caps and scarves. it is softer than angora, warmer than wool and washable. unfortunaley it is rare and very expensive- a simple cap costs about $200. It is only sold in one shop in Ankorage and and it is a way the native women make some extra money. We would have loved to be able to buy each of you something ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Raleigh Hotel
Was nervous about staying here April 17-23 when I read the other reviews. However, I'm very glad I stayed at this property. My room was very clean, the furniture was terrific and the bed and bedding were to die for. I slept extremely well during my stay. The bathroom was always well stocked with fresh towels and sundrie items. The air conditioning was excellent and I liked being able to open my window for fresh air. The front desk and bell staff were very friendly and a great help to me. The hotel is a four minute walk to a lot of restaurant choices (Woody's is an excellent sports bar) from Italian to Irish to American fare. Check out "Big Ed's" for breakfast! Excellent food and a great atmosphere.
Don't waste your money
Unfriendly hotel staff. Old rooms. Not clean at all. I thought it would be like one of those Sheratons in Europe but i was wrong! I will never go back there. Please do not waste your money.
We don't have much positive to say about our hotel stay there:
After reading the reviews, I was apprehensive about staying here. I was in town on a Friday night for a concert at the Progress Energy Center, so the location couldn't be beat.
Rest assured this is NOT the best hotel in Raleigh. The entire experience was the worst I've had in MANY years and I'm a frequent traveler for business and pleasure.
The hotel is supposedly "Raleigh's finest," which would be a pity if true. It is located in the heart of the city, just a few blocks from the state capitol. This is a dodgy neighborhood, at least during weekends, when downtown Raleigh is eerily empty. Right now downtown is rather torn up; they're turning a failed pedestrian mall back into an active street, so there is construction everywhere. This makes it a bit hard to navigate when trying to find the hotel.
Don't stay here if you want service....
The facilities were standard of a hotel of this class, but the level of service was far less than expected. It is a convienient location if you have meetings in the downtown area, but the lack of ammenities (coffee bar not open on weekend and no curbside luggage assistance) did not live up to expectations. I will avoid this particular hotel in the future...may try others dependent on how my written complaint is handled.
Beautiful clean rooms, nice people, & good food.
The rooms were nice & the food was good. However, it would be nice for someone to help & direct you with your luggage. Always useful when the desk knows what's going on in the town for guests looking to spend time/money in the city and for something to do. The people in the eating area are the nicest. Oh, let's not forget the people in the parking garage. One peron took the time to call someone she knew to help us find an area. In my book, she went above and beyond the call of duty.
Checked in and checked out again within 30 minutes
Hard to list how many things were wrong.
You can't stop in front of the hotel and there is no help with your bags is a good start - but you can park for a charge of $8 a day in a multi storey opposite and then drag your bags over to check in.
The hotel is very difficult to find - in a street blocked off by some kind of construction activity - not the fault of management - but not mentioned to me when I phoned for directions...
The facility appears to be part of a shopping mall...in a rough part of town - you know - I'm not going to bother writing any more - awful !
The room we stayed in was supposedly non-smoking but actually had a very strong smell once you turned off the AC (You had to turn off the AC for it was freezing with it on).
The room desk was warped and there was a suspect white stain on a blanket.
Also, you are pretty much forced to pay for parking across the street which has a flat rate deal with the hotel.
Seemed more like an aging business hotel more than anything else. I guess the downtown Raleigh area is pretty dull. We moved to the Chapel Hill Sheraton after 2 nights. That hotel was much nicer...
