Comfortable accommodations in a beautiful old building. The decor is lovely. Chocolate and port in the evenings is a nice touch. Great location. Excellent breakfast. Very nice stay. Would highly recommend.

We attended a wedding in Durham and were put up at the King's Daughters Inn. From the moment we entered the doors until we said goodbye three days later our experience was lovely in every way. Because of a mix up about length of stay we actually stayed in two rooms. Each had its own compelling character,and the other rooms... More

While planning my fiancee's 50th birthday celebration, her children suggested that we end the night at an artistic and distinctive hotel. Not wanting to disappoint, I called every boutique hotel in the Triangle and visited a number of them as well As soon as we walked into the Kings Daughters Inn, we all exclaimed that the web site does not...

From the gracious greeting and free snacks at check-in to the friendly hellos when you come and go, this place is fantastic. I only spent one night but it was a terrific night. They matched the price I received on Hotel Tonight which was almost $90 off the regular price and provided me a great room with a single queen... More

We make regular trips to Durham so that my wife can participate in a clinical trial at Duke. Our visits are made under the worst of circumstances. The bright spot in each visit is our stay at The King's Daughters Inn. The rooms are great. The staff is thoughtful and always there to help. Morning breakfast is delicious. The bed... More

We stayed here while visiting Duke Medical Center for a night,and when we were held over an additional night there was no question of where we wanted to stay.

Each common area and every uniquely decorated room feature magnificent materials and appointments. From bowls, vases, lamp shades, hutches, mirrors, headboards and much, much more, our amazement was non-stop. The creative combination of fabrics and materials makes it a joy to just walk through the hall-ways. We stayed in the Saunders suite and we're thrilled with the additional room adjacent... More

The King's Daughter is in a nice quiet neighborhood. The hotel pays attention to every amenity, right down to two glasses of port on one's bedstand prior to bed. The room was nicely decorated, comfortable and larger than a standard hotel. The only thing that I missed was a gym but I made up for this lack by walking extensively... More

Our son was married in Durham this past weekend. The entire wedding party, including parents, stayed at the KDI Friday-Sunday. We hosted the rehearsal dinner, welcoming reception, wedding "after party", and Sunday brunch there. We could not have selected a more perfect place!

My son and I stayed here during a college tour, and it was outstanding in all the ways other reviewers have remarked. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, the location convenient, the breakfast ample. The management was gracious and I observed them bending over backward to accommodate a family who appeared to have misunderstood the accommodation they booked. Finally, I... More
