All are surrounded by spectacular landscaping and the challenging Duke University Golf Course.

Wonderful stay

Beautiful hotel and setting. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Location right in middle of Duke campus with golf course and restaurants on site. Pricey, but good value for the cost, and not that much more expensive than other hotels in area.

Romantic Evening

Courteous service and beautiful rooms. My only complaints were the few hairs left behind in the shower and the decision to not provide my wife and I with a few of the golf course on a not busy weekday night.

Can't wait to go back.

We just got back from a three day stay. We have travelled all over the world and this was by far the best experience we have ever had. The food and service was amazing. Never before have I enjoyed eating as much as these few days. We tried all the restaurants and were impressed by everything offered. Can't wait to go back.

A truly special place

We were only able to spend one night at the Washington Duke. The hotel is luxurious, and the staff very accommodating. We had dinner in the Bull Durham Bar in the side room watching Duke play basketball. Fabulous service and the most comfortable surroundings in any bar ever. You will not be disappointed in your stay or restaurant visit.

Superb Hotel Right on the Duke Campus

This hotel is beautiful and perfectly located if you're doing something on the Duke campus. The rooms are well appointed and clean and the mattresses are very comfortable (In fact, when we were checking out they were bringing in new mattresses for the hotel#. The restaurant and bar have a nice #if small) selection of food and drink at reasonable prices. We ate dinner at the main restaurant and were very pleased. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All of the AAA 4-Diamond plaques will give you an idea of what you're in for. A great experience for an excellent price.
