Stayed at Washington Duke Inn while attending Duke-UNC basketball game. From the men at the door, to the reception desk, to the waiters in the restaurant everyone had a smile and "can I help you." As busy as the inn was, each person took the time to make each guest feel special. The inn is obviously a pro at handling large numbers of fans and had bar and restaurant facilities ready and waiting. The restaurant "tailgating" buffet was an added pleasure. The best BBQ ever, lots of choices of fresh salad, desserts, and the best service ever for a really busy night. Then a quick walk to game, happy quick walk back, and comfortable, quiet night at the inn. The best place in Durham to stay especially if visiting Duke University.
