"This was our third stay - highly pleased."

"Our favorite place to stay when we are in the area."
"Great place. Very distinct from cookie cutter hotels."
"Hotel services met all of our needs. Courtyard is beautiful. I love the chess set. The shuttle service was extremely helpful! I used the shuttle service from the Amtrak station and to the medical clinic. The location is perfect for walking. I wish I had stayed here after my brain tumor surgery instead of at my Aunt Nina's house! :o) Lovely accommodations."
"WiFi works great! Grounds are lovely."
"This place was the perfect place to bring our father to allow him enough time to recover from his stay at Duke University Medical Center before making his trip home. He really enjoyed being here."
"The staff has always been great the four times we have stayed at Duke Tower this year. See you in November."
"I'll be back. An outstanding stay."
"You have a nice place here and all of your services suited my needs well. Everyone was extremely polite and helpful. The kitchen is well equipped appliance-wise and storage and closets were more than adequate. I am very satisfied with the accommodations. The shuttle service was done very well and timely - that was important to me. The drivers are terrific!"
"This is the best value in Durham! Great staff and amenities."
"The garden is really nice and should be given more prominence on the advertising and web site. It's good to have a feeling that you are not in a hotel, but at home."
"We can't say enough about the availability of transport to and from Duke during these times of stress everyone of the transport staff has been wonderful to us!! We love the landscaping. Flowers and plants are a special hobby for me. It makes me feel righ at home here. I love the whimsical artwork! The ability to walk in a secure and covered walk way is a plus! Bravo for recycling! Breakfast options are good! The ability to stop at a grocery story is very good and healthier. Plus it saves money."
"We have stayed in many timeshares and condos throughout the world and this place is delightful. The grounds are beautiful. The pool is great. The staff seems to care about the guests. The drivers were so helpful. The Tower breakfast was great."
"Regarding transportation: Everyone has seemed to drop everything accommodate us. Transportation is the main reason we initially chose Duke Tower. It has been so important to us and we certainly understand that we are only 1 set of residents."
"Everyone I met at this facility was extremely helpful and friendly. The courtyard is beautiful; great work by someone."
