We had to make several trips to this area to take advantage of the doctors at Duke University Medical Center. This is a very convenient, new hotel at a very good price. The lobby is great, continental breakfast included every morning, great outdoor sitting area and glassed in - indoor pool. Room was great, get one that has the refrigerator and microwave. Gym is great also. Good neighborhood, close to highway and new mall. I highly recommend this hotel over the other ones closer in to Duke. This one is nicer and only 10 minutes away.
