Can we bring our 13 lb. dog?

Hello, All of our suites are proper 1 bedrooms with a door between the bedroom and the living area, so you should have no problem with the sleeping child. The sofa in the living room is not a sleeper sofa, but can comfortably sleep a child under 10. We do offer pack n plays which you can request from the front desk if you would like to use one. As an alternative, we also have king rooms with adjoining double rooms. Our front desk agents will be happy to discuss your needs if you would like call us. We look forward to welcoming you to Durham soon. Cheers, Craig Spitzer, General Manager
