We visited for our first time over Spring break in March for a Duke campus visit for our daughter and a friend, and we very much enjoyed the property, impeccable accommodations, and a top notch, attentive staff. We look forward to visiting again!

I came here on business didn't know much about this property or its setting. Both were an amazing surprise. The hotel and grounds are extremely well maintained with a peaceful, beautiful setting overlooking the really picturesque golf course. The rooms are quiet and well-appointed. The staff is wonderful. I'll be back soon with my family to stay and play!

After Duke beat UNC in the semifinals of the ACC, we looked online to see if a room was available. With only four rooms left, we decided to splurge and go over the next night for the ACC basketball final. (splurging means we drove from Raleigh to Durham - just 25 minutes away) Having lived abroad for 20 years and...

The Washington Duke is a great spot for families, people traveling for business, and even college visitors. Very close to Duke's west campus, the hotel doesn't stray far from the university vibe but certainly maintains it's own identity. The surrounding foliage as well as the adjacent Duke Golf Club make for a great setting at the Washington Duke. I believe...

I joined my husband on a business trip and stayed here because he's been talking about his stay here for years. It's as good or better than he remembered. The staff was extremely helpful, the grounds are spectacular, and the restaurants are great. Best of all, though, are the rooms. We got a golf course view, the beds are very...

We love the WaDuke. The previous time we stayed there was about 18 years ago. The hotel continues to be the best option in Durham, specially if you want to be close to Duke University, as the hotel is on campus. The golf course is outstanding.

Country-club luxe, overlaid with Southern hospitality. The Wash Duke, as everyone calls it locally, is far and away the best place to stay if you're visiting Duke. The lobby and the public rooms are all very handsome in the best of traditional decor - lavish upholstered seating at every turn, handsome views of the golf course which surrounds the property....

The staff is intelligent, friendly, helpful and very patient. The condition of the hotel is spotless and well maintained. It's lost a little ambiance due to expansion and convention like facilities.
