U.S. News Review

Flanking the southern edge of the Duke University campus, the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club invites visitors into a historic, collegiate environment. This hotel honors Washington Duke, the founder of the Duke University and a renowned philanthropist, and guests discover tributes to his life and legacy throughout the property, including painted portraits and the family's coat of arms. Visitors adore the Inn's warm atmosphere, as well as the adjoining 18-hole championship Duke University Golf Course, which has been challenging swingers since 1957. The hotel's Fairview Dining Room also impresses guests with its cozy arm chairs and creative Southern cuisine, though many diners warn of the restaurant's high prices.
