On the campus of Duke University, this luxurious hotel evokes the feeling of an English country inn. Guest rooms with plaid bedspreads and creamy wall coverings overlook either a park or the Robert Trent Jones and Rees Jones–designed golf course. On display in the public rooms are memorabilia belonging to the Duke family. At the quietly sophisticated Fairview restaurant ($$$$) you can dine on poached tiger shrimp and mango cocktail sauce followed by prosciutto-wrapped
monkfish with goat-cheese grits.
