This was our first time in the area. We were driving through en route to Atlanta. I spent a lot of time researching hotels in the triangle region and finally decided upon this hotel. It is on the Duke campus which is beautifully landscaped. We saw many runners and bikers passing on the trails around the hotel. Check in was expeditious although the front desk staff was not as friendly as I would've expected. The decor was upscale and clean in both the lobby and room. We stayed in what was considered a junior suite. There was a king bed and pull out couch for the kids which was adequate for the night. There were double doors that separated the two areas for a little privacy. Although they did not lock and the curtains were somewhat sheer. We had requested the fold out couch be made up while we were at dinner, and when we returned it was not. We again called and someone came up promptly to take care of it. The staff on the floors (housekeepers and maintenance people) were friendly and always said hello. We did find a deodorant behind the tv which did not belong to us, which always puts me off a little. Otherwise, we had an excellent experience and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.
