The lifestyle images sprinkled throughout the site do the entire hotel justice, highlighting its Art Deco architecture, iconic pool and lush landscape. While we wish the photos accompanying the room descriptions included a closer look at the rooms, we do like the list of in-room features (Deep Soaking Tub? Yes!) and floor plans.
The room photos often only show a small corner of the room, but the lifestyle imagery featured in the site’s Gallery section does help fill in the gaps.
The booking engine is also a breeze to go through, too. However, unless you have super human vision, it’s best viewed on a tablet or desktop. What we would love to see is a rate calendar to help users with flexible travel dates shop the best rates.
With the new site, comes the Raleigh’s Always Iconic hotel package, including: a room upgrade (based availability, 20% off the best available rate, and (the best part) a waived resort fee. The $20 resort fee covers WiFi and two beach chairs.
February rates with the Always Iconic Package start at $370 a night.
