The Raleigh Marriott City Center provides all of the services and amenities you've come to expect from a Four Diamond hotel—and a few extras designed to provide an unforgettable experience. Our beautiful Gala hotel is located on Fayetteville Street, in the center of Raleigh’s revitalized downtown.

  • Guests will enjoy small conversation areas, access to wireless connectivity in a newly-redesigned and inviting modern space.
  • After a multi-million dollar re-concept to the restaurant space in 2014, RYE Bar & Southern Kitchen offers a refined take on traditional Southern cuisine, inspired by the bounty of quality ingredients from North Carolina and surrounding farmers. RYE Bar features carefully selected local and regional craft beers, an innovative cocktail menu and a premium wine list.
  • The Marriott’s Four Diamond level accommodations are not only convenient and connected to the new Raleigh Convention Center, but opens to Fayetteville Street - North Carolina’s “New Main Street” with vibrant entertainment, dining, arts, museums and festivities.
