I found the sleeping accomodations very good (as typical at Hiltons). The gym was small for a hotel this size, with limited options especially regarding weight training. My biggest frustration was the breakfast. I'm a Gold HHonors member this year, and most (by far) Hilton hotels include the full buffet for Gold members; this location only provided a continental.

Great hotel; clean, modern, well maintained. The gym was lovely and had good, quality equipment. Dislikes: The pizza advertised in-room looked like authentic, thin-crust Italian pizza. What was delivered was a doughy mess that I wouldn't have ordered. The housekeeping staff tends to "reset" your room daily. Throwing out once-used soap, replacing once-used towels (that were hung up, not on... More

Beautiful hotel. Awesome service. Room service was prompt, and the server was polite. Room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. I usually stop here overnight to rest up on my drive from Georgia to visits the folks, back to DC. I always wish I wasn't just crashing here for the night, and that I can spend a few days here!

I think this is a very good hotel, but it was a bit far away to call itself "Near Duke." However, if you have a car, it's not an issue and they do have a courtesy bus. Good beds, friendly staff. Rooms can get noisy if neighbours aren't considerate.

I am receiving medical treatment at the Duke Medical Cancer Center. The Hilton hospitality begins with the Shuttle and carries on from check in to services to check out. Although my purpose for staying isn't pleasant, the Hilton staff at the Hillsborough manage to make your forget you are far from home and feeling vulnerable. As a case in point,... More

The facility is a beautiful full service hotel. I would not select it again however because for the price paid, $200+, there is no complimentary breakfast. There is a restaurant that offers a cold breakfast buffet for $10.00 and a warm breakfast buffet for $20.00. The staff was attentive and helpful. If money is not an issue, you will enjoy... More

From the time we walked through the door until the time we left we could not have been treated any better. I was there for medical reasons, at Duke, and the transport and handling of luggage after checkout was so helpfull. Everyone, from one end to the other, was fantastic. Accomodations were clean & comfortable.

The Lobby is in wide open old style. The restaurant is in lobby as well. Bar is in lobby everything is out in the open. Very old style. Other couple near us commented on the very same. Not a Martini glass in the house!!!

I enjoy shopping in Durham and attending concerts at the DPAC and always choose this hotel when I go. The staff is friendly and helpful and Don (one of the courtesy shuttle drivers) is especially wonderful. His professionalism and gracious attitude would be a true asset to any business. The rooms are quiet and very comfortable and the outdoor property... More
