Sneak Peek of the new JB Duke Hotel in Durham at Duke

Recently I was invited to tour the newly opened JB Duke Hotel located in the heart of the Duke campus. The new hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to athletic and academic facilities like Cameron Indoor Stadium, the Duke Medical Center, Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club, Duke Chapel, Sarah P. Duke Gardens and much more. The hotel is linked to the Fuqua School of Business. The hotel's recent renovation features contemporary and modern design. It's airy and light-filled spaces connect to the outdoors with landscaped courtyards, terraces and plazas. Nearly a third of the entire building is glass. Floor to ceiling glass windows in the lobby bring in amazing light and stunning views of Duke Forest. The decor and furnishings highlight history, craftsmanship and community of North Carolina. The lobby is stunning with hand crafted furniture and carpet that mirrors the Duke Forest tree shadows.

Located at 230 Science Drive, the hotel offers 198 guest rooms which is great for staying on campus for football, basketball, parent weekends, graduation or other campus events.

There are two bars and a full service restaurant specializing in a la carte and conference dining with plenty of convenient work stations. The hotel is ideal for executive education, conferences, weddings and other social gatherings.

Design inspiration from natural settings extends into the guestrooms where neutral tones of warm grey and gold set a backdrop for the room with accents of deep blue, inspired by Duke University’s colors.

The facility offers a 5,450 square foot ballroom, several multi-purpose spaces, two state-of-the art boardrooms, two fixed-tiered classrooms seating 65 attendees, generous pre-function spaces and a business center. State-of-the-art systems in each room will assist its global and local clientele.
