N.C. State’s new on-campus hotel is for all of Raleigh

by Jessie Ammons

There’s a new hotel in town, this one on N.C. State’s Centennial Campus. The StateView Hotel opened this fall, a sleek, modern venue meant for both university-related business and Raleigh visitors. There are nods to the Wolfpack throughout: guest rooms are called “dens,” bright red books stud bookshelves in the common area, and featured beers on tap rotate from the department of food, bioprocessing, and nutrition sciences’ Sheppard Brewing Lab. College of Textiles professor and artist Susan Brandeis, whose work has been featured at the Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C., donated two fabric pieces permanently on display in one of the StateView’s lobbies. Outside, the hotel overlooks Lake Raleigh and connects to a protected forest and walking trails. The spot feels secluded from campus and from downtown, but it’s convenient to both. If you’re in need of somewhere for a last-minute holiday visitor to stay, the StateView might be just the place.
