The StateView Hotel, part of Mariott’s Autograph Collection, opened in October 2017, on the shores of Lake Raleigh. The hotel is adjacent to the Park Alumni Center and conveniently located across the street from the Lonnie Poole Golf Course – all nestled within NC State University’s Centennial Campus, just minutes from Downtown Raleigh and I-40.

The ground floor of the property features eight commercial and special event rooms ranging from a grand ballroom that can hold up to 400 attendees to intimate rooms for smaller groups – perfect for sales planning meetings, breakout sessions, and smaller trade shows or presentations. There’s also a private dining room set beside the main restaurant at this property that’s ideal for private lunches or dinners seating 20 or so guests comfortably.
Each room has AV equipment included in the rental price and an AV technician who works on-site. (NICE! Those fancy devices don’t always work as expected.) Enjoy the high-tech amenities including drop-down projection screens and charging ports for all your digital attendees. Room setups can be completely customized to fit unique event needs: theater style, classroom, e-shape, u-shape, t-shape, receptions, ovals and rounds, banquet, conference, and everything in between, plus they have all the tables and chairs you could need!
Outside of the conference rooms is a spacious pre-function area for networking that leads to an amazing outdoor space. Cool feature alert: when the property was being built, the concrete slab has tent tie-down hooks built in so you can create a spectacular tented space for outdoor entertaining rather than having to accomodate for clunky water barrels.
Several of the conference rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows that provide ample light as well as the feeling that you are in the country. Outside are views of trees, land, and the lake. No stuffy conference room vibes here! If you are looking for a team outing that feels like an out-of-town escape without the travel costs, this is the place to do it. It is quiet, serene, and convenient.
With a huge patio overlooking the gorgeous pool, this space is perfect for everything from team meetings to weddings.

The onsite restaurant features American cuisine with views of Lake Raleigh. On the bar menu you’ll find locally-themed cocktails, two kinds of beer from NC State University’s own brewery, as well as selections from other local breweries. This offers a great space to take a break or enjoy happy hour. (If you forgot for a second you were on Centennial Campus, they also serve Howling Cow ice cream available to grab during meeting breaks.)
The StateView has plenty of room to allow for overnight guests and remain an attractive option for conferences drawing attendes from out of town with 90 king-size rooms, 70 double-double rooms, and three suites – each with a little wolfpack flare. There are in-room phone chargers and docking stations, crisp linens, and high-speed wireless internet.
