Cary Meeting District

When your must-have list includes charming and renowned quality of life, you’ll want to plan your event surrounded by everything Cary, N.C., has to offer.

The town has the only Five-Star hotel in N.C., the superb Umstead Hotel and Spa, as well as the exquisite downtown Cary boutique property The Mayton, both made for those who like to be surrounded by luxury and both with inspiring meeting space. In addition to those meeting hotels (with more than 2,500 square feet of meeting space!), you can also find comfort and all the amenities your needs at Embassy Suites Raleigh-Durham/Research Triangle, just a short drive from Raleigh's William B. Umstead State Park, and Hilton Garden Inn Raleigh-Cary, right in the Crossroads Plaza shopping area.
