Always excellent

Posted Aug 26, 2014
This hotel is one of our favorites- from free (and excellent) coffee in the morning to wonderfully decorated rooms, it is superb. Best place to stay in Durham.

Wonderful views and Southern charm.

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: The decor was fabulous.
Cons: The mini bar situation has outlived its prime. When we arrived, to our dismay, the mini bar had been ransacked: open cans of nuts and cookies,etc.
Great bellman and front desk personnel. Decor was superb.

A Classic Southern Hotel, Charming and Gracious

Posted Aug 10, 2014
Pros: Everything from the spotless rooms to the exceptional food in the the dining rooms. The car service was a nice touch to Duke campus. Loved everything
Cons: It's pretty wonderful as is.
Location: Duke Chapel is a must see. There are great places to visit in Durham and Chapel Hill.
I can't say enough about the welcoming staff and very helpful valet attendants. I used to be a Ritz-Carlton patron, but the Washington-Duke is my new favorite in Durham. A gorgeous facility, beautifully managed and staffed, this is a MUST STAY location. The leisurely pace and gracious assistance makes you feel like a VIP. Congratulations to the managers of this exceptional hotel. I will be back especially because of the warm, friendly, and accommodating staff.

beautiful hotel with full amenities & free parking

Posted Aug 7, 2014
Pros: First Class Hotel on a gorgeous golf course.
Location: At Duke university. This hotel is on a golf course and there is a nice bar and restaurant inside and outside right off the golf course.
We were upgraded upon arrival to a 2 room (both King beds), 2 full bath room at no extra cost! Great set-up in room to get ready and plenty of luxurious space with all the amenities you need.
