Overview

Located on a 300-acre property entirely within the bounds of Duke University, the Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club in Durham is designed with the understated elegance of the English countryside. Each of the inn's 271 rooms and suites overlooks the Duke University Golf Course and comes comfortably equipped. The hotel's attentive staff and concierge service is happy to assist travelers with dinner reservations or tee times. The golf course is the only one in the region designed by Robert Trent Jones; it was the site of the NCAA championship in 2001 and has been ranked among the best by Golf Magazine and Golf Digest.

Fun get-away while college hunting

Would recommend Tue, Feb 24, 2015
I stayed at the "WaDuke" with my younger child, while my older child was visiting Duke. I had stayed here before on business, so knew it would be nice and I wanted to give my daughter a treat for being dragged along on yet-another college trip. The hotel didn't disappoint! It's a luxury hotel that is equally appropriate for business travelers and families. Great pool/hot tub and fitness center, nice restaurant and pub/bar that were welcoming to kids, and bar doubles as a quiet place to work in the morning with a cup of coffee while kids are still asleep in the room. Perfect for doing business at Duke as it is an easy walk to the center of campus. The only negative is that the pool closed in very cold weather (despite being inside) and there are no options for grabbing inexpensive, quick food within the hotel itself.
