My husband and I were looking forward to a quiet, romantic night at this beautiful mansion. The parking lot was full when we arrived because of a community board meeting and there isn't anyone to help with bags. Our room was beautiful and large, and the porch was wonderful, except for the constant sound of several leaf blowers and the insane amount of dust being blown around. This went on for the entire afternoon until I called downstairs at 4:45, when my allergies were overwhelmed and my head aching from the noise! They did finally cease, but by then it was dark and too cold to sit outside.

In the morning we thought, we would finally walk around the gardens, but the leaf blowers started up again. There was a lot of remodeling of the gardens going on, so mud was a problem. If we would have been warned, it might have been nice.

The afternoon cookies were a nice touch, but there weren't any cups for the coffee and the hot water for the tea was cold. The restaurant was not open, but there was a buffet in the morning.

Perhaps the future will hold better management and a quiet and clean place.

We recently spent two nights at the Duke Mansion while visiting Charlotte for the first time. We
chose it because it was ideally located for walking in the historic Myers Park area, one which
we especially wished to see. We also had a mid-week special on our room. We were not disappointed in our choice, despite a bit of room heating problems our first evening. With a
sharp temperature drop our lack of heat was a bit uncomfortable, but a portable radiator got
us through and they got things ironed out the next day, The room was small, with a double bed
versus a queen, but was nicely appointed and had full amenities. The breakfasts were well done,with a number of menu options. It was not speedy, but the pace allowed conversation with our fellow guests which we always consider a plus for B&B stays. The building and grounds are lovely and as we hoped, the location was super for Myers Park sightseeing.
While you could easily catch a bus downtown on nearby Providence, we chose to walk to the
downtown area. It was a good distance but not too strenuous for those who like walking.
While we could have stayed closer to the downtown area, we were glad we chose the Duke
Mansion. The staff was most helpful, and assisted in our walking and locating our evening
dinner locations as our GPS was having problems. While the primary focus of the Duke seems
to be on attracting business events, travelers and larger events, it treats other guests with
attentive, courteous service.

This is far more than a homely B and B . We realised this the minute that we turned into the drive and caught our first glimpse of the elegant building surrounded by gorgeous gardens. Our room was huge with an equally spacious bathroom and the sleeping porch complete with swing seats and rocking chairs was a marvellous place to relax and chill out. We took full advantage of the hot drinks and cookies available on the landing.
As it is a B and B there is no restaurant, but it is only a few minutes walk from a road with a selection of restaurants, cafes and a superb delicatessen with a menu of take away food so long that it took us half an hour to read it and almost as long again to choose. We took our selection back to our room and had a delicous picnic out on the sleeping porch.
The one disappointment was the breakfast. Hotel information states that a gourmet breakfast is served every day. We were expecting a menu with a choice of items freshly prepared and served. What we found was a breakfast buffet with a reasonable choice of cereals and juice alongside big serving dishes of scrambled eggs, sausages etc which had clearly been sitting around for a while. The pastries and muffins were les than fresh and there was no bread of any description-I found this surprising as there was such a good bakery a few minutes down the road. I would expect this sort of breakfast at one of the big chain hotels, certainly not at such a place which in all other respects offered excellent standards of accommodation and service.

The Duke Mansion is a beautiful venue for a wedding or a romantic weekend away. My family just spent 3 nights at the Duke for a wedding. As you pull into the driveway, the mansions beauty is a bit overwhelming. Being from New England, the charm of the south is very appealing. The grand entrance and the details of the place are amazing. The room we stayed in, a funny name - Van Every Room, was beautiful. Many of our NYC friends commented on how the single room was sadly larger than their apartments in the city. The fireplace and the grandiose furniture is lovely. The sleeping porch is beautiful. Breakfast is included with your stay. A buffet style, however the server in the dining room is extremely attentive with proving drinks and anything else needed. It's a very special place. The setting is just perfect for a wedding. I would definitely recommend having an event at this venue or spending a romantic weekend in this historical mansion.

How the Mansion provides its elegant reputation and service as a B&B and be a Conference Center at the same time to the degree it does boggles the mind, but they do and they do it with panache. For this I give them plaudits and praise. They run two the entities with meticulous care and it shows. The rooms are immaculately maintained, and you feel upon entering as if you enter into a world that has disappeared. In this they have succeeded in their mission in preservation of the mansion. Breakfast, while seated at a large table and not a private table is delicious and served by friendly staff. When in Charlotte, if you do experience the Mansion at least once, you are missing out on a singular experience in a beautiful established neighborhood.

Room Tip: Any room here is excellent
