AAA Inspector Notes
A stylish industrial theme adorns this modern hotel, located at the doorstep of the Durham Performing Arts Center and just steps from the Bulls' ballpark and American Tobacco Campus. Dozens of downtown restaurants and nightlife spots are a short walk away. Rooms are equipped with current technology and a flair for minimalism. Platform beds feature plump white duvets and ample pillows, and the large windows afford lots of natural light and city views. Most rooms have large, tiled walk-in showers. Bathtubs are found in a handful ADA-compliant rooms only. A grab-and-go market in the lobby offers snacks all day and light fare for breakfast. The lobby lounge, with a billiards table and dual-sided fireplace that opens to the front patio, is the setting for unwinding in the evenings. Smoke free premises. 134 units. 6 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).

Pros: Location was excellent. Went to a Durham Bulls game next door on a lark.
Cons: There is no restaurant. The breakfast area is a cellophane wrapped food nightmare. It's like trying to find something to eat in a 7-11. There is no restaurant nearby for breakfast on the weekend. I had to drive to eat something decent.
