Weekend Getaway

All the staff is super friendly, and the beds were so comfortable. We love the convenience of having the restaurant and bar inside the hotel. There was a small problem at checkout that someone had charged drinks to my room but it was quickly cleared up and credited back to my card. Will be staying again very soon.

Pretty Hotel

The furnishings of the hotel and room size were great. Be careful of the way you book - breakfast buffet is free if you book through an honors program but expensive if not. The location is not the best area of Durham but the city is small so it is convenient to Duke and the highways. There is no microwave in the room and the refrigerator did not cool to a safe food storage temperature. THis was mentioned to the staff but they did not offer any compensation. All in all, it was pretty, comfortable (nice beds) and rooms are larger than most. Food was very pricey - yogurt, fruit, croissant, coffee (for one person) was over $30. Lunch, dinner menu is small and quality was not very good. Pricey stay overall for the area.

Close to 85

2nd time stay. Beds are comfortable! Worth the price considering you are close to 85 and do not have to deal with circling around 40. Staff is extrememly helpful and excellent service.

Great Hotel

I was exceptionally pleased with the hotel. The facilities are relatively new and well maintained. The room was clean, modern and in general outstanding. The staff were courteous. The hotel is located near Duke University and its medical center, and the amenities included a free shuttle that would take you anywhere in a 5 mile radius. The food at the hotel restaurant exceeded expectations and was reasonably priced. I enjoyed my stay and will definitely stay there again on my next visit to Durham. Duke has used this hotel for some of its reunions and it is far better than several others that I have stayed at in this area.

Great for Visiting Duke Undergrads

I was in Durham to visit my sister who is a freshman at Duke. I picked this hotel because it's close to the East Campus where freshmen live and because it was relatively cheap. It was an adequate place to stay, but don't let the Hilton name fool. It's definitely not tre chic. If you want something more upscale stay at the country club by West Campus or just stay in Raleigh or Chapel Hill.

Best feature was shuttle (and driver/manager)

Hotel personnel nice, but manager who was doing the shuttle was exceptional. Girl who checked us out on 10/14 needed improvement in customer service. Room comfortable and clean but bathroom door had been patched with metal...not a good feeling of excellence.

Great Hotel, Needs better Room Assigning

Great a hotel but on Saturday night we couldn't sleep due to noise on our floor and after the 3rd call in to the front desk we found out that our floor was the center of a teenage slumber party for the kids of the Durham area. We had to move floors in the middle of the night in our pajamas and leave all of our luggage in the first room. This was a huge deal b/c I had a 9 month old and a small dog that barks at noise (I had to hold him all night before we moved so he wouldn't get up and bark). I just think that they should have considered things like that when assigning rooms - especially with a baby involved. This slumber part was only on the second floor so there were a lot of other rooms they could have put us. The man that helped us move in the middle of the night was very helpful though.

Nice with flaws

The air conditioning leaked all over the floor and some of my belongings. If the air was on, you didn't hear the noisy highway…. At all hours. The front office staff was nice and helpful, for the most part. The service in the dining area was awful. Next time I think I will try another hotel since there are many to choose from in the area.
