They have a shuttle, but we did not utilize it, we just got to Duke early to park in the better spot. I am glad we did that because we could head directly after that to UNC. But originally I had planned on using the shuttle and I think it is a great option. Very comfortable hotel, and what looks...

This is my third stay in a Courtyard Marriott. They all looked the same, and I like the decor and amenities. Clean and comfortable. The price was excellent, although note that breakfast was not included. For a small cafe, the food offerings are quite good, although the small staff was pressed to meet the demand at 8 am. It was...

It's an older property, well located, convenient to restaurants by walkng and nice. The bistro is good. Rooms - i don't like the drab gray design but many Courtyards have that. The bed was comfy and the furnishings modern. They perfumed the pig very well here. The gym was nice - but you had to go outside to get there....

I recently checked into the Courtyard near Duke for a one night business trip. The front desk staff, the property aesthetics, the room features and accessories were all top notch. I'd been on the road a while and this one night let me recharge in comfort. I made the reservation from the road and I was traveling with a colleague...

While the hotel is in need of a refresh the staff and public space makes up for some of its negatives. The shuttle to Duke Medical was a main driver in choosing this hotel and I would likely return if the situation dictated a return to Duke. The room is on the small side but comfortable. Wifi is not very...

I expected better for a Courtyard. Walls are thin, very loud a/c, mold on bathroom ceiling, pathetic shower and sandpaper toilet tissue. Bed was decent. Room was clean and did not smell weird. Good location.

Adequate for staying one or a few nights. Has a pool, work out space. The meals are decent, but sometimes slow, especially during peak times. Often there is only 1-2 people cooking meals, making the Starbucks coffees and taking the orders, so it seems to be understaffed at times. Rooms are comfortable and decent access to nearby restaurants and Duke...

I come to Durham a couple of times a month because I prefer to have my spa day down there. The hotel always accommodates my stay. The staff is friendly and always answers the questions that I have. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Stayed here when my usual hotel was booked up. This is not a new property although the common areas have been recently refreshed. Parking is more than adequate and very well lit. Check in was easy and fast and I was able to get into my room before standard check in time. My room was small but adequate. Temp control...
