I delivered a cake here for an event. I told them I wanted to set it up but they wouldn't let me as the party started about 2 hours later. They assured me it would be set up. They promised the out of town mother that they would set it up with a cake stand. I was sent pictures of it after the event. They presented it to the birthday girl IN.THE.BOX. the mother wasn't very happy and I certainly wasn't. In the future I will only be setting up my own cakes at this venue. I've attached how it should have been set up and how they gave it to her.

The Durham does almost everything perfectly. They take mid century modern and combine it with local fare and the result is near perfection. The beds are soft, the robes are a delight; the in room snacks are all made in NC. Even the in room coffee service is specially ground for your specific coffee preferences. My only complaint, and I hate to even say it: everything, and I mean everything, in the room was sourced from NC and then they give me Fiji water...at least give me water from North America! Water shipped across the ocean really makes me feel some kind of way. Other than that: perfection.

Clean and reasonably priced in the heart of Durham. Staff could not be more helpful. Rooms were spacious and functional. Showers were large and inviting. Rooftop bar was just the thing on a cool night. Only complaint is a slow elevator! Two thumbs up for the Durham hotel!

The Roof Top lounge is a great place to be. On certain days, there is are live music and the offer yoga classes. The hospitality service is awesome. Great atmosphere.

The rooftop bar is something special to behold. It was recommended to me by my coworkers as the best view in Durham. You feel like you are in a larger city like Chicago or New York looking out over downtown. It was such a special place, I proposed to my fiancee on the rooftop, after watching the sunset.

A little Wes Anderson, a lot amazing. Wonderful service, great accommodations and beautiful views. I'd highly recommend.Best part? They deliver freshly ground local coffee in the morning. Really! Easy access to the Conference Center and anywhere else you need to go.

Great rooftop bar/restaurant, and liked the communal lobby areas and the breakfast, but the room was very ikea feeling, kind of lipstick on a pig updates. Comfortable bed though. We are early risers, but others who weren't had big complaints about the construction starting at 8am sharp directly outside their windows (scaffolding up the whole building)

Location is perfection. The view from the rooftop is amazing. Sit by the pool, order a cocktail, and relax. Rooms are small but updated and very comfortable.

Even though it was cloudy and drizzling, this was still a pretty cool stop along a downtown Durham exploration. For full disclosure, we didn't stay at the hotel, just had drinks at the rooftop bar. Their house created cocktails were awesome and the view is great.
