I recently stayed here for just one night, so I did not get to enjoy many of the amenities (poo, spa etc.). My stay didn't start very well. I was very surprised when I pulled up to the front to register that they only had valet parking. (I was even more surprised when I checked out and found out that...

I was helped by abbi kim and she was a pleasure to work with. she also followed up when she said she would which made my stay that much more pleasant. the service by the pool could use some help but the front desk was excellent. for travelers planning on staying at...

The Duke is a beautiful hotel with well appointed rooms, a very nice bar, great food and restaurants, and it is shockingly near the airport! The look and vibe of the property is definitely one of mid-town Chicago or a scene from Madmen. The staff was extremely accommodating and conscientious.

My sister-in-law booked the room for us (for a nearby family wedding). I did not bother to check on it and assumed that she had done her due diligence. Upon arrival, the hotel looked good and the room turned out to be clean and comfortable. But: (a) it was hard to find, drove by it once, small signage and the...

I had previously been here when it was the Fairmont and it was fantastic! Sadly, it has gone completely downhill. Management is TERRIBLE! Firstly, my room smelt of marijuana and cigarettes; this was coming through the vents. I asked them to de-ordorise the room, and it wasn’t done. It was not a great experience and barely slept that night before...

With easy access to John Wayne Airport (SNA), the Duke hotel impressed me at every turn during my multi-day stay for a business conference. Having spent time in the lobby, the bar, the back 'porch,' the Bamboo Gardens outdoor event area, the meeting rooms, the pool on level 3, and my room, the Duke hotel is a great modern hotel....

I booked this hotel through Priceline's 4 star express deal. What a pleasant surprise. The rooms were lovely and quiet. The bed, super comfortable. Very nice hot tub and pool. All of the employees were very friendly, especially Abigail and Chantal at the front desk and Alex in valet. Would definitely stay again.

Had the opportunjty to stay at the infamous Duke Hotel while attending a workshop at UC Irvine. The hotel is very nice and up to date. The staff is pleasant and accommodating to us as guests. The only downside is no on site parking for guests, only valet. When coming and going this is a pain.
