This is such a modern and upscale luxury hotel, with a staff second to none in service and no matter how many times you go there, you feel the level of service and helpful responses to any request made. This is one of the best kept secret in Durham.

Stayed here for two weeks. Had an amazing experience as an exchange student. The restaurant Market Place was good and tasty. Since we were about 60 people, we probably had a special treat, however the chief is wonderful. We had similar menu everyday, however hot meals differed everyday. Mostly loved Mexican and Indian cuisine. Overall the hotel is very cozy and well-designed. The gym is quite small, its pity haven’t had time to visit swimming-pool and sauna.Special thanks to staff, who were attentive, kind and welcoming. Hope to visit soon 👑🌷

This place is beautiful. I was here for a one day conference. Parking is convenient. I was able to validate my parking. I'm not sure if that was because of the conference. The lobby is beautiful and comfortable. The man at the Bell desk was friendly and helpful. The conference rooms were spacious and comfortable. And the buffet lunch was delicious and had a range of options from which to choose, some dishes from other countries.

Duke JB hotel is real nice. We are here for work and also have family for campus tour. It’s massive and beautiful. Very clean and safe. The food at JB Duke is better than most 4 star hotel. I was amazed how good the food is. Being in Portland we are a foodie city but this hotel doesn’t play around. Staff is super nice and place is clean. This was a enjoyable stay.

Beautiful modern hotel nestled in the woods of Duke campus. Peaceful and relaxing. Stayed a few days and no complaints. Food was excellent and the dining area perfect. Staff excellent and willing to assist. Free laundry facility which we took advantage of. Complimentary shuttle service around Durham was a must. Many thanks to Mickey who drove us around and gave great advice on local options and conversation.

I had a 5-star experience at this hotel. The amenities are amazing. The rooms are quite spacious and feature modern finishes. The lobby and the rest of public spaces are excellent. I also wanted to give Kudos to the staff at the front desk who were able to accommodate my personal concerns. I would highly recommend staying there!

Best ever. Every single person on staff could teach a class on hospitality. I've never seen so many people so helpful. STAFF - you guys are amazing!

Great location on duke campus. Excellent, just excellent conference room for about 40 to 50 people. There are larger rooms too, I think.

The guest services team was spectacular BUT, the rooms were very small... specifically the closets... and it took FOREVER to get someone to help us with our luggage and to get our car! Super impressed by the general manager who actually pitched in to get cars for guests who valeted. A great guy who didn't seem have an ego just because he's an executive.

From the moment we arrived they made us feel like the most important people they’d see that day. Every staff member we encountered the whole weekend made us feel right at home. The room was spotless and came with plush bathrobes a mini bar and cozy seating. Finally a hotel with quality pillows!!
This was a staycation for our 15 year anniversary. We had more plans in downtown Durham,which is just around the corner, but the hotel was so lovely we decided to relax there instead.
The restaurant/bar/lounge area was such a relaxing place to have a cocktail and do some people watching. We enjoyed a great burger and some shrimp and grits. In the morning we enjoyed breakfast with an omelette and waffle station. The service was great and they have amazing local NC products including honey and jams. Shouldn’t every hotel have this!
I think it’s safe to say we’d definitely stay here again. Maybe I’ll start to plan our 20 year now!
