We were visiting Durham to see a show at the Carolina Theatre. You can't beat this hotel's location, it was right next door to the theatre. That was the best part of the hotel. The other positive was the bed was comfortable. The cons: I felt it was overpriced for what we got, the hotel needs updating, parking is not free as trip advisor lists (there is a $12.95 valet fee) and you have to pay for Wifi in your room. It is free in the lobby area. At the time we visited there was only one elevator working which made for long elevator wait times, and crowded elevators. Breakfast at the hotel is $16.95 a person. We walked across the street to Blue Cafe Coffee and had the $4.99 breakfast special which was very good.
