Stayed here for a work trip. The rooms, food, location, decor are great. There really are no negatives for this hotel except the price. Definitely would not stay here on my own dime, but would return without hesitation if the prices were lower. The hotel is right next to Duke and offers many amenities including pool, spa, golf, and hiking... More

This is a lovely hotel just across the street from the campus of Duke University. Although built recently, it has the feel of an early 20th century build. Breakfast was lovely in the main dining room.

This is a very classy place. We were blessed by the friendliness of the staff. On several occasions, a staff member obviously went above and beyond the norm to help us find our way or to serve us in some unexpected way. Good solid accommodations. Beautiful and elegant.

Stayed here for 2 weeks to attend a program in Duke. First of all, it's a pretty nice building; the room is clean and maintained well; and bed is pretty comfortable. The service was ok -- you may expect more if you think it's a Ritz (by its look) but unfortunately it is not. Good enough. However, the food was... More

Very elegant surroundings, plush and comfortable with lots of seating arrangements, excellent if pricy bar and restaurant. I definitely love being addressed as Sir and offered help all day long. I was here as part of a class-and I can't remember being so full with excellent food and snacks. The walking tour of Duke was very nice and I hope... More

I stayed her for a business off-site meeting. It's a beautiful building built in a classic style and decorated with numerous mementos of the Duke family. Meeting rooms are covered with wood panels and the guest rooms, while small, are cozy and comfortable. Service was pleasant at the bell desk and in the bar area although it is by no... More

Although I'm a UNC alumna, I stayed here once with my parents because the Carolina Inn was sold out and we wanted to get a feel for the Duke atmosphere.
