After getting bumped from my Delta flight, Delta put me up at the Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport-Brier Creek, which is an RDU Airport hotel about 6 minutes from the airport.
Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport-Brier Creek review – location
The Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport-Brier Creek is located at 8021 Arco Corporate Drive, Raleigh, North Carolina 27617. As I mentioned earlier, this is about a 6 minute drive from the airport. There is an airport shuttle. If you are arriving to the airport, you do need to call the hotel to have them send the shuttle – the Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport-Brier Creek hotel phone number is 919-484-0500. For departures, there is an airport shuttle that goes on the half hour and you do need to sign up at the front desk; the first airport shuttle is at 5 a.m.
Note that there are 2 Hampton Inns near the RDU airport, so if you’re heading here, make sure you get on the right shuttle!
Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport-Brier Creek pricing
With Hilton’s dynamic award pricing, the cost in Hilton Honors points varies – most dates I checked had it at 30,000 points / night. A quick sampling of dates showed prices about $150 / night per tax. As a comparison, my bill showed that Delta paid $89 for my night after they bumped me off my flight from RDU airport.
RDU Airport Hampton Inn and Suites room
I had a standard 2 queen bed room at the Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport-Brier Creek and it was as expected. In contrast to the Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley hotel where I had spent the past 3 nights, I found there to be quite a bit of light in the room, both natural and electric.
There is a standard bathroom with shower

Hampton Inn & Suites RDU Brier Creek food
The Hampton Inn and Suites RDU Brier Creek has complimentary breakfast. Unfortunately I had to catch the 5 a.m. shuttle for a 6:30 a.m. flight so I missed the breakfast. I assume it was pretty standard with eggs and 1-2 meat options with cold cereal and other choices.
In theory, the Hampton Inns are supposed to have a “Breakfast to Go” available for early departures like mine. It was mentioned to me when I checked in that these would be available, but when I came down to the lobby the next morning, there were none in sight. I didn’t have the chance to mention it as I was out the door on the shuttle.
If you’re up for something more substantial, there is a full restaurant at the Embassy Suites Brier Creek RDU which is located just behind the Hampton Inn RDU Airport.
Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport-Brier Creek amenities
The Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport-Brier Creek has an indoor pool
as well as a full fitness center including free weights, a recumbent bike, 2 treadmills and 2 elliptical machines.
There are also a variety of conference rooms and a business center.
All in all, the Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport-Brier Creek was nothing amazing but fit my needs for a basic airport hotel.
