Only had a one night stay here, but can't really find anything to say about this property except that it's pretty much perfect. Even with a 1st floor room, on a busy Saturday, I didn't hear anything. The room itself was huge, very well-maintained, and clean. Loved that a bar and restaurant were available. The bar staff were friendly and... More

Hilton is wonderful unless they have a power outage, then it's everyone for their self. They do not care about your safety or comfort. They do not have a back up plan in place, just throw their hands up in the air and say sorry.

I stayed at this hotel for one night while my son attended a camp at Duke University. It was very clean; staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were spacious and I can't say that I was able to hear any sounds from any other rooms. The beds were very comfortable and I was able to get a good... More

This was my first visit to Hilton Durham. Prior to my stay I reached out to hotel management with a request which they replied and obliged to honor. I checked in later then expected and requested complimentary shuttle to Durham Bulls game. After the game the hotel shuttle picked us up and we proceeded to our room. It was a... More

I've worked in many hotels in the past and I really felt comfortable staying at this hotel. I felt that the room was up to my high standards! It was extremely clean, smelled fresh, and the beds were very comfortable. The hotel itself is very beautiful too. The front desk staff was professional and friendly for the most part. My... More

Great hotel. Affordable. Clean and nice. Still need a car for arrival from the airport or to go out in Durham. Came to Durham for a buisness trip, and was really happy with this hotel. Definitely will come back if need to be there again though next time will rent a car at the airport.

This hotel surprised me a lot. For the price it was very clean, and looked nice aesthetically. I consider myself very picky with hotels, and I still recommend this place very highly. The rooms were spotless and there wasn't any kind of strange smell like we had a few nights earlier at a Holiday Inn where we had to demand... More

Loved my stay at this Hilton that is tucked away on I-85. Close enough to hwy for easy access but not a bit of highway noise. Clean, neat hotel with excellent mattress and bed linens. While it looks like an older property due for an update, the staff is excellent and responsive, and everything in my room worked perfectly. Overall... More

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
