This is a great place if you are doing work or visiting on campus at Duke. Don't be put off by the mediocre exterior of the guest room area, they are quite good for a conference center and they more than fulfill all your business needs. The service is beyond top notch and the location is nestled away, which made it possible for me to bring my family--including a baby--along and them be happy with their clam, quite retreat. The highlight is the alternative to in-room refershments: Complimentary snack lounges with decent snacks and drinks! Beware, everywhere on campus is a bit of a hike (literally) and anything in Durham is a good 10+ minutes drive, so I would never go here for generally Raliegh/Durham/Chapel Hill visit. But, I will choose this place again next time I am on Duke's campus. If Trip Advisor allowed my real rating would be 3.5 stars.
