U.S. News Review
Flanking the southern edge of the Duke University campus in Durham, North Carolina, 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 will discover tributes to his life and legacy throughout the property, including painted portraits and the family's coat of arms. In the rooms, guests will find flat-screen TVs, Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities, minibars and coffee makers. Visitors adore the Inn's warm atmosphere, as well as the adjoining 18-hole championship Duke University Golf Course, which has been challenging golfers 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. And as far as the staff is concerned, recent visitors said they were hit or miss: Some guests said they encountered friendly doormen and front desk employees, and sour restaurant servers and bartenders.
