The Washington Duke Inn is a great hotel that I recommend to anyone staying in the Durham area. The service was outstanding throughout the hotel. The food was high quality. If you're there to visit Duke University then all the better due to the convenience to campus. I didn't play it this time but have played the golf course previously... More

We've stayed here twice in the past few months and have enjoyed our stays. The decor/style appears to vary from room to room, and the first suite we stayed in did not have a desk, but the second one did, so if you want a desk to work at, I would specifically ask for it, Both rooms had tvs. The...

An outstanding property in the "old school classy" way... Clean, quiet, comfortable and classy... My only suggestion to the management is after renovating the rooms, replace the "vintage" iHome docks with the 30 pin connectors with the modern ones with the Lightning connectors... Come on, you are on a University Campus... Even a 74 year old knows that is so... More

Attended a conference here and was very satisfied. Staff was exceptional. Very quiet in guest room. Nice surroundings. I do not play gold so cannot comment on that! I used in-room dining twice, food arrived the right temperature and staff reminded me gratuity was included in the check. Housekeeping staff were friendly.

The WaDuke is a delight! It's easy walking distance to Duke. The bar (lots of mahogany and walnut) and patio are fabulous! The wait staff is pleasant and helpful.

I had an opportunity to visit Durham for the first time in several years and could not pass up the chance to stay at the Washington Duke again. Like revisiting an old friend. Excellent service, formal, yet comfortable. A wonderful flashback to my daughter's college days.

Had lunch in bar at the Inn and it was delicious! A wonderful waiter and interesting menu. We split a cheeseburger and outstanding fries. Mixed drink were unique . We'd go back . We ate at two o'clock so it wasn't crowded.

Our family stayed here during our visit to Duke to do an official tour. It is literally a stone's throw from campus. Very classy place and fantastic service. Great if you golf, and also nice jogging trails out your doorstep. Highly recommend.
