Just celebrated out son's wedding in Durham. The wedding was basically a destination wedding for 90% of our guests making the very central location of this hotel perfect the a weekend full of events. Most of our friends and family that drove were able to park their car and never move it again until they left. The rehearsal dinner was down the street at Motorco Music Hall and we had a shuttle service to the wedding which was at the Museum of Life and Science. The restaurants, bars and shopping all within walking distance of this hotel could keep you eating, drinking and spending for weeks. Not to mention the Durham Bulls Ballpark.
For us the staff was exceptional! Very warm and welcoming and willing to do anything to make our stay a pleasant one.
My only suggestion to the hotel is that the hotel bar, on the weekends, should remain open after 11:00 pm. A number of our guests returned to the hotel (a rainy evening) wanting to continue socializing and were unable to do so there. They would have had to go back out on a rainy evening to find another bar nearby.
