Stayed at this hotel over the Easter weekend. The staff was friendly and professional, very attentive. Like being at a resort. The room was clean, beds very comfortable. Air conditioning worked great! Even has a setting for "white noise". I definitely recommend staying here.

Reviewed 11 February 2017

This hotel has been recently updated with the past few years. Stayed only 1 night on my visit to Cameron for the unc vs Duke game. Love the option of checking in via phone app and not having to check in at desk. The app allows you to check your room and than gives you a mobile key less check...

This hotel is tucked away and in an area of town close to Duke University, but also mostly fast food chains between Duke and hotel. The hotel was very nice, clean, friendly. Also close to freeway, yet very quiet at night.

Second stay at this hotel - it is right off Duke's campus so very convenient. I especially enjoyed the option of an allergy-free room. The bedding and air quality were excellent. The staff was helpful without being annoying. Parking right outside the lobby. We also dined in the restaurant and food was excellent.

I would like to stay at the Hilton hotel when I have a vacation with my family. At this time, we stayed at the Hilton hotel near Duke university for 2 nights. In my thought, this hotel should be renovated to provide a better stay for the customers. I felt a little disgusting smell in the room and the cleaning...

We stayed at this hotel the first week of April 2017 and were delighted. The hotel is beautiful throughout and the 2 queen beds room we had was roomy and nicely decorated. The food is great but the best part of this hotel is the staff. They assisted us with several issues regarding our trip and were so friendly and...

Room Decor is Subpar for a 3-4 star hotel. TVs are the smallest flat panels I've seen for this type of hotel and cost pee night. Wallpaper coming off the wall and stains on the wall lamp shade Broken.

This is a neat old Hilton (1960s architecture?) that has been recently renovated. It is conveniently located in Durham, NC, right off of 85. If you are on a road trip and looking for a place to stop in this area, especially if you have dogs, this is an excellent choice. I was pleased that their generous pet policy accepted...

Great full-service Hilton with excellent customer service and large, clean, updated rooms. Love that there is plenty of parking. Breakfast buffet was very tasty and included all the staples plus biscuits and gravy! The only negative I experienced was the dinner room service and this might just be due to what I ordered - calamari was not good. Other than...
