The igloos were so cool! There’s an electric fireplace inside so it’s nice and toasty, and a Bluetooth speaker so each igloo can pick their own music. It was harder than I thought to reach the $50 per person minimum. We ordered almost all the appetizers, one of each dessert, and multiple rounds of drinks for everyone before we hit the minimum, so it was a great value. All the food was delicious. I’d say the Brussels sprouts were my favorite appetizer and bread pudding was my favorite dessert. The spiked cider was really good as well. Our waitress was really nice and chatted with us a lot. She had good recommendations on food. I will say that they don’t tell you gratuity is added to the total. They bring you a receipt with just the total and a line to tip. So, if you give a tip, you’re really adding that to the 20% gratuity that’s already included in the final price.

Dined last night in one of the rooftop igloos and it was a fantastic experience. The owner came to talk to us, great guy. The chefs are amazingly friendly telling us about the food. The servers were super friendly and fun too. Now, the food was something else; it was superb. Everything that I tried was delicious. The drinks were different and excellent. Lastly, the ambiance was so cool that we felt that we were home, guaranteed: we will return.

My family and I went for dinner on 11/24 at the igloos at the unscripted. And it was such a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was incredible, the igloos were well decorated and included a heater. We fit a family of 8 people and we’re very comfortable. The food was spectacular and the desserts were out of this world! 10/10 would recommend.

I’ve only gone to the outdoor bar but I’m in love with the fun vibe and great views. This hotel looks amazing and pushes that 1960s decor to the hilt. If you are looking for a perfect night out in Durham you can’t do better than hanging by the pool and sipping a cocktail overlooking the city.

Friendly staff, wonderful accommodations, great common spaces like the lobby and patio. The food and drinks at the patio (with a pool!) were delicious, the lobby space is great for meeting, relaxing or even working. The rooms are spacious and modern. Highly recommend!

The hotel room was very nice and comfy. The food at the patio was delicious. The location is right in the middle. We walked around and enjoyed the night life and live music. The only complaint I have is the hotel only allowed a late check out of 30 minutes after the normal checkout time. Other than that our stay was good.

Fun place to stay, amazing location with many fantastic restaurants and bars within walking distance. We enjoyed a late night chilling by the pool and listening to the DJ. I would recommend one of the rooms away from the pool otherwise you will not be able to escape the noise. 433 was great. If you want a quiet place do not stay here, this is a more social hotel. We will be returning.

This place is pretty cool. My husband and I stayed the night and it was nice. You get free coffee in the morning in the lobby. My only problem is that they charge $20 for parking a day when the parking garage alone charges $15. This is the only hotel I've even been to where I had to pay for parking. They should at least give their guests a deal at like $10 a day.

Staff was extremely professional and respectful. Service at the poolside was attentive and courteous, but I was very disappointed to learn their staff is not allowed to sit down even when the temps are above 95 degrees. That’s a sign of management that is MUCH less attentive and courteous than their staff. Shame!

I really enjoy this hotel. Nice 3rd floor open pool deck and views of Durham. The bed and linens were superb! The room was clean. The only thing that keeps me from giving a 5 ⭐review is the shower water pressure was low and the room had no coffee maker. Will stay there again next time I'm in town.

A great location that is walkable to many restaurants, shops, and the Durham Performing Arts Center. It seems to cater a bit to the party crowd, especially with the poolside rooms. Pro tip: don't take one of those rooms if you are looking for a quiet evening. The hotel is cultivating a 60s vibe, down to the psychedelic wallpaper on many of the walls. Beds are comfortable, though the rooms are not spacious. I was disappointed that there was not a separate bin for recyclables as you find in some hotels. You should definitely be on your list of possible choices if you're visiting Durham.

Excellent. Amazing drinks. Delicious food, appealing atmosphere, helpful staff, and brilliant service. Bar staff are oustanding. Matter of fact all of the staff will give you nop notch customers service. My go to spot. When i come back home from a long work trip. Sometimes to much at times. I just like the people and service!!

I went with a group of 7 friends last week to eat in the igloos. It was really fun and a beautiful night to be there. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. I personally really appreciate that they have an extensive nonalcoholic drink menu because I don’t drink alcohol and it is often hard to find good nonalcoholic drink options. I got the ginger beer mocktail which was really good. We ordered a ton of food because we knew we had to make the spending minimum. We liked all the apps. The entrees were not as exciting in my opinion. I got the burger which was just fine but nothing special. We brought our own birthday cake and they sliced it and served it for us without charging a plating fee which was nice. We ended up staying an extra hour past our time slot and we really appreciated not feeling rushed. We were some of the only people there so it would have been rude for them to kick us out, which I know has happened in the past. I know this place has gotten negative reviews in the past for a variety of reasons but overall we had a lot of fun and the igloo atmosphere is super cool.

Everything was amazing. Food was good, service was great and it was beautiful. It was definitely cold. The heater is small so it takes a while to heat up then the cold air comes in every time the waitor comes in. If you can get a spot book it!
