Well I must say I'm impressed. Not even here 10 minutes and front desk calling to make sure our room is OK! Very modern and very clean! The TV is huge!! Here for medical stuff at Duke. This is a wonderful place to stay their prices aren't bad at all even their food.

CAMBRiA is very convenient to Duke University as well as the Duke Medical Center and surrounded by several restaurants in walking distance--although you'll probably drive to them. The rooms are cute, kinda have a dorm room feel to them. The platform beds are cute, but darn does it hurt if you catch a corner with your shin. Don't be fooled...
