It's also a short, fifteen to twenty minutes' walk to Duke University. The train station is not far, and the airport only takes about 20 minutes' drive - an ideal location! The hotel is not the...

My son and I stayed at this hotel in Durham and from the car valet to the housekeeping, everyone was so accommodating and friendly! I would definitely stay here again. The rooms were nice - it's not a brand new hotel but it has been kept up nicely. The people at the front desk were so kind and I enjoyed...

Chose this hotel due to it's proximity to DPAC. The room and decor was very nice. Bathroom was spotless with plenty of towels and toiletries and the bed was very comfortable with plush pillows. Staff and service was excellent. I will be staying here again!

The staff here is remarkably helpful. Two examples. First, on my checkout day I was rushing to leave my suitcase and arrange a taxi so I could get back to my meeting.
