Look, but don't stay A review of Clarion Hotel State Capital
If I could give this place NO stars, I would. Drive by and look at it if you want, but never, never, never - every - stay here. Unless, of course, you happen to like inattentive and/or abuse front desk staff, rooms that were maybe clean 30 years ago, and a restaurant where serving something called food seems to be a complete mystery to the staff. Our experience there started out bad and went downhill from there. We were booked for a week but left after 2 nights of broken promises and indifferent service. Maybe this was a class act 30-40 years ago when it was built, but now it is just a shell that should either be gutted and rebuilt or demolished. Or it could be used as a training ground for how not to run a supposed 3-star hotel. If you need to stay anywhere in downtown Raleigh, pick someplace else. Anyplace else. A park bench would be a step up from this place; at least the homeless people who hang around the hotel are polite!
