Hotel's Favorite
I recently stayed 3 nights here on a college visit to Duke University with my daughter. The Hilton Garden Inn was a great retreat during our hot days in Durham. The hotel was cool and inviting, our room was comfortable and clean and had great wifi. The staff had great suggestions for local places to eat within walking distance. There is also a supermarket within a short walk of the hotel. The rooms have small fridge and microwave. There is a nice pool and fitness center too, although we didn't have time to make use of them. We had breakfast there also; there is hot food and continental buffet style offerings. Lots of onsite free parking too. Campus was 3 minutes away by car. I would definitely stay here again!

Nice rooms, great service and yummy free breakfast (waffles with chocolate chips on top is A+, or oatmeal with peanut butter and chocolate chips - yum). Pool was indoors, so not super enticing, but relaxing. Very convenient location.

Great experience at this hotel. Check in and check out were efficient. All staff members were helpful and friendly. Hotel was exceptionally clean. Breakfast in the am was perfect for our 4 different needs. Location was perfect as we were visiting Duke University. No surprise charges at the end.

Review collected in partnership with Hilton Garden Inn
My son and I stayed here last month for a couple of nights while visiting Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to stores and restaurants on Ninth Street. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the hotel restaurant staff at breakfast were super friendly and attentive. My only complaint was that our room was located across from the hotel laundry room, so we experienced some noise at times when we were resting. Just avoid rooms in the 220's.
