Reviewed 22 May 2014

We stayed here in Mid-May. This seems to be a fairly modern hotel with a location about 1 1/2 miles from the central part of the Duke campus and downtown Durham. There is a small mall with a Whole Foods 1/4 mile away. The staff was friendly. The restaurant breakfast buffet and fitness room were great as well. If in Durham again, I would certainly look to stay here.

This is a very nice and well-maintained Hilton Garden Inn (fairly new, I believe). Friendly staff - nice decor - comfy beds. Desk chair and easy chair were also very comfortable. Nice bathroom and fixtures. Complimentary coffee, tea, hot chocolate and cookies in the afternoon. There is a dining room on the premises we didn't use except for a $3.00 "mini breakfast" that my husband purchased one morning. Note: There is an apt. bldg. going up directly behind the hotel but no construction took place during our stay. Did not particularly like the area of town where the hotel is located which is considered "Old West Durham." The street the hotel is located on is fine, however. Very convenient to Sarah P. Duke Gardens which is the reason we stayed at this location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the front.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Excellent service and a beautiful, clean and comfortable room. I had been hesitant about staying at the hotel as it was connected with a medical facility, but it was outstanding. It was graduation weekend so we were lucky to get in last minute. And we were able to use our Hilton Honors points!

Centrally located and fresh and clean. The dining room serves a delicious salmon dish. The menu is creative and the staff very welling to please. It is not recognized on Siri because it is a new property.

I stayed here for a night on business in early May. The hotel staff are excellent, efficient and friendly. The room was very nice. There was a wide selection at breakfast and the restaurant staff were very attentive and keen to do a good job. We were pleasantly surprised to learn about the free local shuttle that we were able to take advantage of - they even picked us up again after our meeting. I had to call afterwards to request another copy of my bill and I received it by email within 5 minutes of hanging up the phone. It was an excellent experience and I would be pleased to stay here again.
