I've had the opportunity to work at The Durham Hotel a few times through the years, and it's such a great venue for intimate weddings! Not only are the rooms beautiful for guests to stay, but the rooftop is fantastic for outdoor ceremonies and cocktail hours with a view of Downtown Durham. The first floor restaurant is great for hosting a wedding reception, and the first floor outdoor patio is a lovely way to get fresh air without leaving the hotel. We love recommending The Durham Hotel for intimate weddings.

Excellent stay at The Durham! The lobby is comfortable and open for work, a quick meeting, coffee, breakfast or lunch.
The rooms were spacious with ample pillows and comfortable linens on the bed. Lots of hanging hooks around in addition to closet space which I loved. The bathroom, also spacious, had a wonderful shower. Big ups on the robes and slippers for lounging and enjoying the fresh ground coffee (delivered to your room each morning for in-room brewing.) There was also a selection of local snacks for purchase in the room and a couple complimentary small bottles of water. You could choose to have daily housekeeping or not, just request via the door placard.
While I didn't stop by the rooftop as it was closed for a private party, I look forward to a cocktail the next time I return!

We had a great one night stay at the Durham. The location is perfect for walking or scootering to everything in the downtown area. The staff were friendly. The room was very clean, but I will say is very simple. I wouldn’t say this is luxurious, but more Modern and unique feeling - more of a local business feel. We had a great time and would stay again. Loved the unique local offerings within the room. The beds were very comfortable as well. Tv has limited cable options. Very few towels given in the room.

I loved my stay at the Durham hotel. It is such a convenient location and the rooms and building are beautiful. The staff are incredibly welcoming and accommodating. I loved that the snacks available in the room were all local or from North Carolina. Room service was quick, easy, and delicious!

This place was perfect for walking back to after a drinking night on the town. Rooms were really extra simple and no fluff or frills. The building is totally retro. Very sufficient for the circumstances and area. But not anywhere near worth $416 a night. I would stay again for $250 tops. I travel for a living and have stayed everywhere.

Don't forget to use HotelBolly.ᴄᴏᴍ when booking any place. They compare thousands of booking web sites and usually will have rates a lot cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This hotel is one of the highest rated in the area. I have been coming here for a long time. If you decide to stay here you for sure won't be disappointed.
The Durham is a terrific hotel and is well located (you can walk to just about anything). My wife and I had an enjoyable stay here, despite visiting during a weekend with lousy weather. The room was clean, comfortable, and had a nice view. We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to others looking for a great place to stay.

I'd heard so much about the Rooftop Jazz on Thursday nights
and because it's open again since Covid, I drove up from Atlanta to check it out.
VERY NICE, GREAT CROWD
and Now, I have Four New Friends. 😎

The roof event space was great. The food was perfect and they could add walls against rain or wind if needed. Staff was top-notch

I've eaten here twice and, as a steak and oyster lover, the steak and oysters are phenomenal. Great atmosphere as well. Mostly wanted to write a review though to acknowledge Andy, who works at the front desk, who took the time to write and print a list of local restaurant recommendations for me. The Durham Hotel restaurant is closed today, but I really wanted steak and oysters, so Andy researched and then printed a list of 5 recommendations for me. It was thoughtful and I appreciate that she went above and beyond.

We loved our stay! The staff were capable and courteous. Our room on the fifth floor was spacious and charming, well-lit and quiet. The view was lovely. The whole facility was clean and well kept. Our morning coffee was prompt.
The location is perfect for exploration. We parked in the deck across the street and left our car there for the duration of our stay. We’ll be back.
