Iconic hotel and golf course

Posted Sep 9, 2017
My wife and I were in Durham for a medical appt and procedure. We spent two nights. We were treated very well. Hotel, grounds and golf course are well maintained. Short walk to the Duke campus. 3 mile walking path adjacent to the hotel.

Awesome Durham Retreat

Posted Jul 1, 2017
The hotel is awesome. It is very quiet and the rooms are well appointed and first class. The indoor pool and gym plus golf and walking trail give you no excuse to not exercise. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The food is fabulous.

Nice hotel close to Duke University

Posted Jul 1, 2017
Expedia messed up our reservation and we didn't have enough room for whole family. My daughter had to sleep on a chair. I even called and asked them how many people fit in room to make sure and they were wrong. It wasn't a good way to start our vacation. The hotel was nice thou. It was so close to things we wanted to do. I wish we would have had time to golf. The course looked awesome and the golf shop had so many nice things. It was was a beautiful hotel. I was a little disappointed the hot tub wasn't open, but the kids had fun in the pool.
