First off, this property should probably be listed as a boutique hotel, rather than a traditional bed and breakfast. That being said, this is a great place to stay in an amazing neighborhood. My wife and I walked every morning before breakfast just to admire the surrounding residential architecture. The breakfasts were delicious. The Duke is close to downtown and... More

This is truely a gem! The setting is both elegant and intimate. The mansion is secluded in an upcale residential neighborhood and sits amid 4.5 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. The staff is cordial and attending to the comforts of clients seems effortless. There are 20 rooms available, all large and lovely. Ours included a screened porch overlooking the garden.... More

I had a great one night stay at the Duke Mansion. I wish I could have stayed longer. The room and mansion are beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed my room, bed and a lovely screened patio with views of the grounds and fountain. I would happily stay again. Note that during my visit, a large outdoor renovation was going on, so... More

We were so excited to stay at the Duke Mansion as this was our first time in Charlotte! After using many references & talking to people we decided this would be the place to be. Our excitement was peaked when we drove in to the neighborhood - WOW! Driving up to the Duke is IMPRESSIVE to say the least! We... More

** As of late January, the back garden was being overhauled so you might see piles of dirt and hear backhoe noise on that side of the property until 5:00pm, as we did. ** This great old house tucked in an elegant enclave is ideal for anyone visiting Carolinas Medical Center, a five- or seven-minute walk away. We had a... More

What a beautiful B&B -- really an upscale inn -- in a lovely part of Charlotte. Will definitely return! Hate to give it too rave a review because there are few rooms and we may not be able to make a reservation when we return. (2015 is the 100th anniversary of the home that Doris Duke's father built so there... More

Recently spent 3 nights here in King bed room with porch. The room was very nice, clean and well decorated. Everything here is upper end, no shortcuts taken. Bed was comfortable, pillows were soft, and quality linens. Bathroom was good size with its own heater (needed it as we stayed in Jan during a cold spell). Flat screen tv is... More

This is a jaw droppingly gorgeous property. We spent the night on a long layover before going to New Orleans. The hotel is a classic Southern Belle. Beuatiful marble floors , chandeliers , fountains and gardens. We stayed in a King Room with a sun porch. The room was spacious and decorated with lovely antiques. The bed was very comfortable...

The French toast is one of my favorite dishes as well! And who doesn't love bacon? Thank you for feedback on the temperature controls. We are updating our HVAC system in this historic home. We have recently installed new mechanical systems and are in the process of installing new thermostats in each of the guest rooms. We should have all... More

Truth be told - the photos don't really do this place justice - when I rolled up at night time and was greeted by the stunning water feature with the glowing white mansion in the background, my jaw dropped. Surrounded by trees and sweeping gardens, the entire grounds and structure itself is gorgeous - a place where old meets new.... More

My wife and I discovered this jewel set in the midst of a residential oasis. We had a fabulous room, the service was impeccable, the hospitality was warm and gracious, breakfast was amazing (cheese grits at their most decadent), exploring the city nearby was convenient, and leaving was difficult. What more can you ask for?
