The hotel is close to the hospital with a quick easy drive. The beds are always comfortable and the rooms are clean. This is our 4th stay at this hotel and will not be our last. Staff is very nice and accommodating.

The staff is pleasant and the price is right, but this is an older property which is in dire need of maintenance and updating. It seemed a little “too good to be true” that rooms rates were so reasonable. I can only assume that this is why.

Dear bwowmp, Thank you for taking the time to share feedback from you recent visit. While we strive to provide excellent service and accommodations to all guests, I am sorry that we let you down. It is true that some renovations have been delayed due to the pandemic, but we are working very hard to catch up and make sure that all guests have the same great experience that our hotel has been known for. I hope that in the future you will give us a second chance to provide you with the experience you expect and deserve from a Hilton property. Thank you again for letting us know about your concerns. Kind Regards, Doug Pender Assistant General Manager doug.pender@hilton.com

Dear tinasmirchandani, Thank you for your five-star review of our hotel on TripAdvisor! We do not always get to hear from guests who have a great experience, so it is truly heartwarming to share this feedback with our staff who most of which have only returned to work in the last two months. We truly appreciate you taking the time to let us know about your experience and look forward to seeing you again for future visits to Durham. Kind Regards, Doug Pender Assistant General Manager doug.pender@hilton.com

Stairwells were smelly and trashy. Carpets in and around elevator were stained. Not a Hilton by Hilton previous standards. Covid has caused major changes and this hotel reduced staff. I understand that everyone is nervous about working these jobs right now.

Dear Voraciously, Thank you for providing feedback from your recent stay. I appreciate your understanding of how the pandemic has severely impacted the hospitality industry. Across all hotels, restaurants, and tourism areas, major staff furloughs were required because there was simply no demand. It was a very saddening experience seeing so many team members without work and for such an extended time. We are grateful things are finally improving, and with the recent increase in travel we have been working very hard to hire more staff and return our service levels to what they were before the pandemic. Please know that we are accommodating a large number of guests who do have a good experience, but unfortunately due to the impact of the pandemic, it has increased the number of problems reported such as the ones you encountered. I truly apologize for the unsatisfactory experience and am sorry to hear that you would not recommend us. Thank you for being a guest of the Hilton Durham near Duke University and for sharing your experience with us. Kind Regards, Doug Pender Assistant General Manager doug.pender@hilton.com
