Duke University Hotel & Travel Guide

Pack your bags and get ready to experience Duke University, an important part of any travel itinerary.

You'll find it along with many other attractions in Raleigh, the dynamic state capital.

Despite the fact that there's a nice selection of 13 hotels within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of Duke University, it would be a good idea to book early so that you get the best deal available. The King's Daughters Inn, the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club and the Hilton Durham near Duke University are three that are popular, and they are just 1 mile (2 kilometers), 0.9 miles (1.4 kilometers) and 2 miles (3 kilometers) away, respectively.

Instead of counting sheep, you'll be counting the dollars you pocket because you chose to stay at the budget-friendly University Inn Durham next to Duke University Medical Center. As an added bonus, it's only 0.6 miles (1.0 kilometer) away.

After a busy day, rest your worn-out feet at a deluxe establishment that's not too far away. Fabulous choices would have to be The Durham Hotel and 21c Museum Hotel Durham.

If you need a second wind, you can keep your brain alert with a burst of caffeine. You can order a cup of coffee from The Terrace Cafe, just a short walk away. If you're after something that's more substantial, Chick-fil-A is nearby. You know it's the right time to round up your friends for a drink when evening shadows appear. Ask the bartender for a locally-made spirit or wine at Erwin Square Cafe, only five minutes by foot.
