Fodor's Expert Review Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club

3001 Cameron Blvd., Durham, North Carolina, 27705, USA

On the campus of Duke University, this luxurious hotel evokes the feeling of an English country inn. Guest rooms with classic furnishings and creamy wall coverings overlook either a park or the golf course, designed by Robert Trent Jones and redesigned by his son, Rees Jones. On display in the public rooms are memorabilia belonging to the Duke family. In the lobby, you'll find the quietly sophisticated Fairview restaurant.
