Quick visit to Durham to drop off our college sophomore, with a one-night stay. The WaDu once again was a welcoming refuge after a long drive down the I-95/85 corridor. Front desk staff unfailing polite and efficient, and quickly adjusted our room reservation to accommodate a last minute change. The Bull Durham Bar staff was a very few minutes away from closing for the night when we came in for a late meal, but cheerfully took and served our order without missing a beat. Room was comfortable as always, golf course view worth it on wake-up. Covid preparations and procedures were well-organized and evident throughout the Inn - for example, lots of strategic Plexiglas protecting guests and staff, ensuring essentially contactless visit without interfering with check-in, bar service, etc. We did not see any staff member without a face mask during our stay (same for guests - seems people may have gotten the message). We've stayed at the Washington Duke whenever possible during our visits to Durham (reservations are sometimes elusive during major campus events). It's good to see that the WaDu is up to the Covid challenge, and has maintained the Inn's excellent pre-virus standards, with some sensible precautions (e.g., don't expect valet parking).

This hotel is very quiet and the beds are marshmallow soft! We stayed in an accessible room which afforded plenty of space for a wheelchair. Arriving too late for room service, the bar staff helped us get a meal to our room when they didn’t have to. “Above and beyond type” service is what my son and I experienced during a stressful time after an emergency room visit. The in room Keurig was much appreciated. This will feel like your home away from home. I have stayed pre-Covid and now during the virus. I notice the changes being made for our safety like absence of door men. It’s truly understandable.

We decided to stay to get a feel for the property upon coming to meet Diane regarding hosting our wedding. We were very much so happy with everything. Diane is simply amazing and such a genuine person, super nice. The rooms does not disappoint. Housekeeping very prompt and efficient and the food was superior. I was definitely pleased with our stay. It was the first time in a long time that we did not have to call the front desk to tweak or assist with anything while staying at a hotel. Very pleasant stay and we will definitely be back.

We stayed here for several days recently. The hotel itself is lovely, the grounds are beautiful and the rooms well appointed. Although we were limited on activities and dining options due to COVID-19, we really enjoyed the stay and were so impressed by the level of service. We felt very safe, everyone was wearing a mask and there was a lot of cleaning & safe distance displayed. We hope to some day come back to really experience everything it has to offer. And the staff was absolutely amazing!

It's not a fun time to be traveling, but the Washington Duke Inn has it all together. Protocols for health and safety are clearly evident. Everything is spanking clean. When they could not accommodate a request they were courteous and clear. There are no amenities now--of necessity--but in-room dining is prompt, food is delicious, and the staff put together a few things that were not on the menu.
