So it's fine and comfortable in all the ways you would expect. But it all feels pretty much phoned in from casting central, the decor impeccably boring, the service polite but soulless. There's a bottle of water waiting for you on your desk in the room, with a $7.00 price tag attached. A note tells you that if you touch... More

We stayed here on a visit to Duke. It was really a fabulous hotel. We stayed in a family suite and it was perfect. The room was huge and so nice. We ate at the restaurant outside overlooking the golf course. Sheer paradise. I'm no hoping my kid gets into Duke just so I can stay at the hotel again!

Top shelf hotels need to be beautiful, spacious and attentive--and our last stay there was that plus. We had our daughter's wedding there--and everything went phenomenally. Food, service, and room were flawless--everyone liked the food--very unusual for my family and friends.

This was the second time my wife and I stayed at this lovely upscale inn on the edge of the Duke University campus. The deluxe king bed rooms are large and well appointed with a large comfortable bath area. The lobby is elegant with plenty of comfortable places to sit, read, or just people watching. The bar is a good... More

My family (2 adults, 1 teen and 1 tween) stayed here for my neice's wedding. We stayed in the family suite, which was very roomy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The biggest downside was the mattress, which was broken and fell to one side. Other than that, we loved it and would stay there again.

We came in a little after 3 and room was not ready and hotel was not sold out. They make dogs go thru back entrance and aren't allowed anywhere on the grounds. Even on eating patio! Beautiful golf course and great location to Duke but a little snooty and not extremely helpful or friendly.
