Hotel is very nice with nice amenities - outside pool, restaurant and bar, shuttle service that will take within 5 miles of travel. The staff at the Hilton were exceptionally kind and accomodating. Stayed for seven days for business and the hotel accomodations made the stay very relaxing. Outside pool very refreshing. Rooms are nice and clean. My room was... More

This hotel is in the "Hilton" category of the portfolio. In my opinion, it should rather be a "Garden Inn". The lobby is quite basic, with a small "Pantry"-like shop, and the restaurant is in an open-space and in a dine-like setting (food was not really to remember) . Not really what you expect in the "Hilton" category. Besides that,... More

Our stay at the well-situated Hilton Hotel Durham was a most pleasant experience. From room service to the breakfast buffet, the food was well prepared and enjoyable. Our room was exceptionally clean. Hilton could not have done more to accommodate us. We felt like VIPs during our stay. We have a need for medical services at Duke U, so the... More

We needed a pet friendly hotel during our stay. The hotel is very convenient to Duke Medical Center and the hotel and staff were very accommodating. We ordered room service since we had our dog with us. The food was very good. I would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is staffed by some of the nicest, most helpful people out there. Giving friendly 5 star service is what they practice - not what they do on occasion. The hotel itself is very clean and well stocked with very good products and services. The food is great!!

We stayed here for a week while moving our daughter into her Duke apartment. Most everything was perfect. The shuttle taking you to any location within 5 miles was a nice perk and eliminated the need for a rental car. Only problem was a slow drain in the bathroom. We would definitely stay there again.

This hotel was an "experience" -- from the fun, friendly lobby to the quiet, luxurious room. My 14-year-old grandson and I were there to check him into a summer education program at Duke, and we both really enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend this hotel.

Convenient to Durham Performing Arts Center. Clean facility. Shuttle provided to and from the venue. Bar/room service not available after 11pm. The animal lovers would appreciate that pets are allowed. We would stay here again.

I stay here frequently while on business trips. I find the location and facilities relaxed and for the most part very quiet. It is convenient to all major roads, but far enough away to not have constant road noise. I find the lobby and the bar clean and relaxing and the staff friendly and helpful.
