Raleigh, N.C. "A Great Place for a Celebration"!

A short walk from The Renaissance is where I took my Niece, and her fiancee' this week to dine.  She had never been to a "French Bistro" before and enjoyed escargot, flounder, scallops, steak and shared the same with her "Husband to be"!

 

The hotel is spacious, and there is plenty of shopping that can be done from this location.

Coquette Brasserie, is very comfortable and the menu is varied..

She just got her Law Degree, so it was a "Double Celebration"!

 

Do you have a favorite "Bistro", hopefully as close to a Marriott Property?e

      anadyr,

       

      Thanks!

       

      She is a hard worker, and her Dad (My brother), just got laid off from his NASA job at Kennedy Space Center.  So it's a real break for all of this to become  a "Happy Event"!

    jerry,

     

    The Renaissance  is my favorite place to stay in Raleigh.  Its the only hotel I know of that is connected to a Gold's Gym and they  give you full access.  Lots of nice shops, restaurants, and a movie theater are all within walking distance.  If you have time you may also want to check out Firebirds, its an excellent place to dine.  The Cilantro-Grilled Chicken is my favorite.   The last time I went to the Renaissance's concierge's lounge there they had some excellent cheesecake for dessert.

    Raleigh has come a long way since I lived there, when starting my career, in '76 - '79.  The Angus Barn, near the airport, was the great place for steak and from what I understand, still is.  Also, a funky little place called Irregardless Cafe opened just before I moved there and from what I understand is still going strong.  Just off Hillsborough, near St. Marys.  http://www.irregardless.com/

    We just got a chance to stay at this property and everything you said was true.  Appreciate your posting on this hotel.  We enjoyed it immensely.

          we had a business conference there in May and we were treated well. The best part of this hotel is also the shopping and restaurants near by. sometimes conferences are in hotels with nothing near by and you are forced to spend all your free time in the hotel. This hotel has a lot nearby so would recommend it as a venue

    I've been to Raleigh many times, and stayed in a half dozen or so different Marriott properties there.  For me, there is no match for the downtown Marriott.  And it you need to be near the airport for an early morning flight, none other than FFI Brier Creek.
