In Durham for a Duke event, I tried the new Museum 21C hotel. Although some of the modern art is loud, to the point of needing to be unplugged if the gallery is in long-term use for a catered event, most of the galleries provide guests and their visitors with visual entertainment, brief explanations, optional headphones for the multimedia pieces, and an introduction to thought-provoking professional artists. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff were helpful. Brand new and still working a few bugs out, so elevators, for example, were in and out of service as I was trying to check out, but that looked to be a temporary thing, easily remedied by a call to the front desk. Checkerboard, next door, saved the day with a late night roast chicken dish and a cold gingery drink after my all day flight from the left coast.

"Comfortable but needs to finish upgrading rooms."
Looks like the rooms are still in process of upgrading--bed, tv, wifi, bathroom fixtures were very good. But bathroom & closet doors old & worn, closet doors didnt shut properly, plumbing seemed older (toilet). And used plastic utensils & paper plates, bowls for breakfast and happy hour--big turnoff! Manager's happy hour should have a real bar and real glasses (not plastic)!

I recently stayed here and it was great. The room was clean, nice bed, and good shower. It's super close to downtown and parks!
The only thing is that the rooms smelled a little weird when you first walked in and that smell got on our clothes.

The hotel has good size room, clean, comfortable beds, sink outside bathroom for convenience, also has a microwave and a working refrigerator, which usually not available in other similar hotels, plus the free breakfast, I think a very good deal, pleasant stay. will come back again.
