Places to Stay in Cary, N.C.
Cary, N.C., has a lot to offer when it comes to finding a comfortable place to make your temporary home away from home. And the amenities of a stay in Cary go beyond just the convenience to downtown Raleigh (a 15-minute drive from one downtown to the other) and sense of security (Cary is consistently ranked one of the safest towns in America). Cary has a wide range of full-service, limited-service, extended-stay and bed-and-breakfast options that include major meeting hotels and luxurious spas, plus hotels with quick access to outdoor recreation opportunities, RDU International Airport and more.
Tucked away not far from William B. Umstead State Park, surrounded by pine trees and bordering a three-acre lake, is the 150-room Umstead Hotel and Spa—recipient of a Five-Diamond Award from Forbes Travel Guide and a Five-Diamond rating from AAA. Consistently ranked not just as one of the best places to stay in the state or region, The Umstead is often recognized for offering one of the best accommodation experiences in the country. A 16,000-square-foot spa and a Five-Star restaurant, Herons, plus incredible service make The Umstead Hotel and Spa a trip-worthy destination in and of itself.
In downtown Cary, The Mayton Inn is equally impressive. The locally-owned and -operated, Georgian-style, boutique property has 44 guest rooms, each of them with a completely unique design. A gorgeous lounge area, full bar and restaurant, spa and gym make The Mayton a perfect “treat yourself” getaway just steps away from popular eating, drinking and shopping spots in fast-growing downtown Cary.
