King's Daughter was the perfect place to stay while moving my Daughter into her Dorm on East Campus at Duke. The staff is excellent, and was very helpful. And the location cannot be beat. What could have been a very stressful experience, was thoroughly pleasant. We were actually able to enjoy quality time in our comfortable room. And move in...

Just had a fantastic overnight with my wife as a little anniversary getaway. It's a beautifully restored building giving it wonderful charm. Great surroundings with a lot to enjoy in walking distance. We were able to see many of the rooms. Each was very uniquely decorated, and they have managed to find a wonderful balance of elegance and coziness throughout....

First of all, the website is excellent in describing each of the 17 unique rooms. We stayed in the Moss Room and would stay there again. This boutique hotel is in a large old home that has been renovated to perfection....soundproofing in each room, magnificent showers, perfect décor. The rooms are spacious. The bedding was the best quality I have...

We stayed at the King's Daughter's Inn for our 20th wedding anniversary and to drop our son off for his freshman year at Duke. The proximity to East Campus was amazing. On our drive from Tampa, the air conditioning went out in our car , so the complimentary water and soda in the lobby was greatly appreciated. The greeters at...

We've stayed 4 times, each in a different room. Favorite room is Saunders. Has a great separate sunroom perfect for reading and relaxing. Great breakfast. Plenty of spaces to sit back and relax. Will be back again.

Considering this building was used for 100 years as an old women's home, then sat vacant until recently, what has arisen from the ashes is fit for royalty. Each room is decorated with beautiful period furniture, a blend of art deco, and earlier periods. The inn was like a museum, with so many artifacts, books, etc. Our room was first...

We attended a wedding in Durham and were put up at the King's Daughters Inn. From the moment we entered the doors until we said goodbye three days later our experience was lovely in every way. Because of a mix up about length of stay we actually stayed in two rooms. Each had its own compelling character,and the other rooms...
