“Great Night's Sleep GUARANTEED”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

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 EXCELLENT experience at this location.

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 on an upper floor with a view of the trees and was very quiet, which I appreciated greatly. Offer a breakfast buffet - continental and full and can also order off the menu, however servers direct you to the buffet even if you just want oatmeal. This option was fine, oatmeal and fruit were extremely fresh. Ate dinner in the restaurant one night, salmon was cooked perfect. Although there were some knats around my table which was annoying. However the hotel and restaurant was very clean. Service was outstanding in all aspects - front desk, shuttle, room service, and dining.

Room Tip: higher floor.

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, very nice and large room, free internet, hotel well maintained and serviced, staff very friendly and helpful. They have shuttle that drives you wherever you want in a certain radius, but int runs every 30 mins only, and having you picked up to return can be slow and at an unpredictible schedule.

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 location was perfect!

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.
