We only stayed here for one night but it was very good. The room was comfortable but elegant and very clean. There was some confusion about our room service but someone came and sorted it quickly and without hassle which was great. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Stayed: June 2014

I booked directly from the hotel. We ended up upgrading to a junior suite which consited of five rooms. We have a few complaints about the room. Some of the upgraded technology did not work such as one of the extra TV screens. The Coffee station was not cleaned and had already been used by someone. If I had not noticed the night before I would have been furious becaus I am a coffee person. The only coffee available in the room was a kuriegg and without the K-cups it is pretty much useless.

Room Tip: If the upgrade for a reasonable price it is well worth it. We upgraded for $30.

We stayed the night here after getting a good deal on Hotwire. We are local and were moving from Durham to Raleigh, and our movers had our stuff overnight. Sometimes with Hotwire bookings we have found service/rooms to be a bit lacking, not so here at all. The front desk staff were very friendly and accommodated our request for a king bed immediately (rather than the double queen that was originally booked).

The grounds and hotel are incredibly beautiful. We are not golfers and arrived at the hotel around dinnertime and had to check out first thing the next morning, so we didn't have time to experience any amenities, but the indoor pool looked great. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant either, the prices were pretty high and because we are local we knew the good restaurants around town there.

The bathroom in our room was absolutely gorgeous - full tile and a granite countertop double sink vanity. Shower was hot and water pressure was good (and felt great after moving furniture and boxes all day). Towels were plentiful and thick. Air conditioner was great and not that loud which is a huge bonus. TV was a little weird, I couldn't figure out how to display the guide showing everything that was on right then, but not a big deal. We usually watch TV on our Ipad anyway using Netflix. Internet was free and fine.

I wish that we would have been able to spend more time at the hotel checking out all they had to offer, but for our short stay it was a wonderful and much needed break in the middle of our move. I would like to extend a huge thank you to the staff at WDI for making our stay awesome.

We love to stay at the Washington Duke Inn. It is comfortable while being elegant. Waking up early you can find a number of nooks to read in near a fireplace on scattered comfortable chairs or couches in the Inn with coffee service in the bar area. Want a nice afternoon tea? Available in the Fairview dining area that is delicious and accommodating as well.

Simply an annual event that I would never want to miss.

The WDIGC is an excellent host venue for a fabulous weekend.
The hotel and golf course are unbelieveble. Staff at the entire property meets and usually exceed my expectations. All you need do is ask. They are ready to help.

The improvements/renovated greens of the golf course were fantastic. This is the best course I play every year. I enjoy the course so much that I play a 18 hole practice round, the 18 hole event and then a replay 18 holes in the heat of the afternoon following the event.

Dear Jeff A,

It is wonderful to know that you enjoyed your annual visit to the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club for the Yorkey-Rainey Invitational. It's a special event and we are happy to host! We are thrilled that the service from our outstanding staff not only met, but exceeded your expectations, and you were able to play the course three times during your stay. The Duke University Golf Course is absolutely beautiful and we are fortunate to be surrounded by its stunning views. We look forward to welcoming you back again next year to enjoy your weekend on the greens!
