Duke Tower is a quirky place to stay -- an old textile mill converted to 1-BR condos which can be rented for either short or long stays. The units are clean, quiet, comfortable, roomy and feel like an apartment. There is a full kitchen. We stayed here while dropping off our daughter at Duke, and it was convenient (3 blocks to East Campus). Our unit had two queen beds in the bedroom and a long sofa in the living room which was adequate as a single bed, even for our 6-foot tall child. The units look as if they were built in the 80's, and are being updated bit by bit, so our unit was a mix of up-to-date and out-of-date. The only negatives were that the fluorescent kitchen light was harsh and the bathroom was small. The grounds are spectacular and peaceful -- large pool, blooming crepe myrtle everywhere, sculpture, shuffleboard, and a few mini-golf holes. This place isn't for everyone. They don't make your beds every day or have an elegant lobby, but it's a comfortable and peaceful alternative to a typical hotel.
