Until the Renaissance and Westin open next year, the Crabtree Marriott will be Raleigh's nicest hotel. Typical of the Marriott chain, it offers a bar and a full service restaurant called Allies American Grille. Rooms are comfortable, though not lavish or fancy. Standard Neutrogena toiletries are in the rooms. There are a pool, hot tub, and fitness room. Best is that it is across from Crabtree Valley Mall.
