Recent guest reviews

My family and I had a wonderful relaxing stay in a junior suite.

Elegant and cozy w/ many nice spaces and a comfortable bar.

Warm and welcoming staff that clearly takes pride in their nice facilities.

Like to have better restaurant , better or easy ( not needing reservation for hotel guest) access. I am not there to play golf and I do not have hrs. to waste on reservation

sayyed total 6 dasy( 3+3) in 1 wk, overall like the facility

Stayed for one night with school age kids while visiting Duke campus. Beautiful, well kept hotel. Staff very friendly. Room was nice, clean but little small. Beds were not that comfortable but not bad. Indoor pool was a nice bonus

One of the nicest Hotels that I have ever stayed in. great experience. I will be back next spring!

Beautiful hotel convenient to Duke. Staff was superb. Will return often.

As always, the WaDu was excellent! Hotel is very comfortable, right on campus and you are always greeted with a warm welcome.

Second visit here.Staff exceptional-from valet staff to wait staff. Welcoming atmosphere.Rooms stylish and comfortable. Extra detail taken to assure pleasent experience. Bar very comfortable-great food. Beautiful property and golf course.

Wonderful caring staff. Beautiful setting. Good food.

This is a great hotel near the university! Very clean and comfortable. This has been my 5th visit to Duke and this is the best hotel I stayed in

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.

It is always a pleasure to stay at this property. General Manager Daniel and his Staff never disappoint.

Washington Duke Inn is everything advertised. Elegant hotel, wondrful courteous staff, room had all the comforts required. Loved dining facilities. Extraordinary place. Will come back.

Upgraded to a suite but unfortunately it was dirty and tired. Place needs an upgrade. Furniture is dated.

No better place to stay when visiting Duke University. It's within easy walking distance to the campus.

Our second time at this hotel and both times a wonderful experience. It is a beautifully kept property with good restaurants- especially loved their Tea with the scones. Good staff and service too.

Reading, comfortable service for a quick overnight

Great hospitality, beautiful decor, elegant without being overwhelming
