While the outside of the hotel appears dated the inside of the hotel has been totally updated. The staff were very accommodating.

Hotel staff were impeccable.

The valet parking, bartender and front personnels was an excellent experience. The wife, my sister and I enjoyed everything.

Close to everything in Downtown Durham

Pros: Staff, location
Cons: An update of the facilities.
Location: Durham Bulls Park, Restaurants, Saturday Farmers Market
Stayed at the hotel for a nearby wedding, and we are happy we did. Close walk to restaurants, and a wonderful Saturday AM Farmers Market! The hotel staff, especially the Valet and late night Bar /Restaurant staff couldn't have been nicer! Hotel could use an update, however our stay was wonderful.

Comfortable, ideally located for downtown

If you want to spend a weekend walking around downtown Durham and exploring the food, brews and baseball, this is a great location. Comfortable room and helpful staff. This Tar Heel fan felt at ease in Duke territory. FYI, the "free parking" mentioned on Travelocity is no longer in effect. Parking is valet only at $12 a day. But it's a worthwhile expense to avoid curbside parking spaces and lots that are permit only.

Elegant and welcoming...

Pros: Quiet
I only stayed here for a night, but it was a great hotel. I was surprised at how cheap it was, especially for such great quality. I will stay here if I'm back in Durham.
