Nicely updated rooms. Professional staff. Easy drive to Duke Clinic. Multiple restaurants nearby, which is fortunate, since they don’t currently have restaurant service at the hotel during the pandemic. Biggest advice: do NOT select a room on the pool side of the hotel, as it is also the I-85 side and the noise is impressive, even on the 6th floor.

This visit to a Hilton Hotel was a true disappointment. We had a visit at Duke Cancer Center and were exposed to mold and mildew in the first 2 rooms we were given. Upon moving to room #3 we were asked to make sure it was up to my standards. I'm sorry but doesn't this hotel have it's own standard. I don't have any acceptance for this situation when it comes to my husband's health nor my any and no person even employees should have to deal with this. I hope there are improvements made and other rooms checked. And one last thing. How can you effectively remove mold/mildew by only covering the spot you see or barely cutting 1in around the area. Masking what you see doesn't remove what you cant. Very, very disappointed. And this was shown to doctors at Duke since this hotel offers discounts for Duke patients

We just got back from a three night stay and were really disappointed by how lax the staff was about the mask policy. People were wearing masks for the most part in the lobby, but almost nobody wore a mask in the hallways or elevators. There were a few times where we got trapped in our room because a large choir group in town were congregating outside our door (waiting for the elevator) and not one in a mask. When I asked the front desk what to do, there response was essentially "it is what it is" and that "we try to enforce when we see it in the lobby." I'm not trying to sound overbearing, but we were in town for a medical procedure for my daughter so it was of the utmost importance that we not be exposed prior to her surgery. We chose this hotel because of their mask policy. Huge disappointment. Other things to note, which will probably be only relevant if traveling with small children. We stayed in a King suite, the room was huge and there was a kitchen area with a sink and mini fridge, but no microwave (but there is one in the lobby). No dining area in the room, and the bedroom doesn't have a door so it's all one giant space. The pool is great, although it opens about an hour late each day. No towel hooks in bathroom, and the overall cleanliness of hotel could be better. The incredible woman running the breakfast situation deserves a raise, she provided excellent service.

After spending 8 wks at this Hilton I have to say I am disappointed. With Covid going on the obvious adaptations are lacking: 1. How about a trash can somewhere near the entrance or lobby to put trash and especially masks so I don’t have to step over the multitude of garbage in your lot. 2. Back to trash, if you don’t have housekeeping Due to Covid maybe larger trash cans or bags can be given to guests staying for a while. 3. Housekeepers, I have no confidence in them since my rooms on numerous occasions were not vacuumed and barely touched. I know this because I had the same room on occasions just to see, even left food in the fridge that was still there when I came back, I learned to bring my disinfecting wipes. 4. On hundred degree days you might want to consider a maintenance person available to fix the AC in the suite I had, but I guess 5PM is way late to ask for this, but hey, I moved just fine to another basic room smelling of perfumed cigarette smoke. There are more things but I will stop. I was asked one time about my stay and that was the 1st night I stayed and never again did you ask me how things were. Covid is a challenge for all of us but you still need be able to give your guests a feeling that you care about their stay...you have failed to do this and I hope you can find a way to fix it. On a positive note the young lady making breakfast sandwiches in the morning is awesome, she is the brightest light in your hotel right now.
