I was in town for a conference. THe conference location was conveniently attached to the hotel. Check-in was easy, the staff were very friendly and the rooms very comfortable. I am a nut about cleanliness and my room was clean. I stayed on the top floor and it was quiet. The food is surprisingly good for a hotel. I was exhausted one night and ordered room service. I was banking on the meal to be marginal but it was actually pretty well prepared.
I didn't have time to explore the area much so I have no idea how convenient it is to Duke, UNC etc. There doesn't seem to be a ton to do right around the hotel but there are restaurants and bars.
A bonus is that is a very quick ride from the airport. In short...I recommend it.
