Came in with a large group of Baylor fans setup by Gary Simpson Travel. Upon arrival I was really impressed with how nice the hotel was, how easy check in was and that rooms were ready on time. The rooms were phenomenal and so comfortable. The bar area is large with lots of seating options or down in the dining area or out in the patio the options are endless. Being on campus was a major plus. To be able to walk a few minutes to the game was great. All the staff we encountered were super nice, especially the valet guys. We will be back soon!!!

The JB Duke is a very new facility on the Duke University campus. Rather than compete head-on with the very historic Washington Duke hotel just down the street, the JB has embraced the fact that they can’t replicate the character of the century-old WaDuke, and instead have opted for a very clean, modern (but still warm) feel. The lobby area is expansive, with lots of comfy seating arrangements to accommodate groups large and small, and “window walls” on two sides provide nice views of the woods surrounding most of the hotel. The restaurant and dining patio are also very nice and offered similar wooded views. The rooms were comfortable, bathrooms were good-sized. Everyone (front desk, bellmen, concierge, restaurant, housekeeping, & managers) was exceptionally friendly and accommodating.

Good afternoon! Thank you for the kind words in regards to your stay with us here at the JB Duke. We have to agree that our Lobby Lounge is a great spot to hang out and enjoy an afternoon beverage, and the view of the forest is quite refreshing. Our staff was very excited to host the fans of Baylor and to extend our hospitality for a fun football weekend. We do hope that you will stay with us if you return to the Durham area, thank you, have a great day!

I stayed at the JB for a couple of weeks during my GEMBA residency at Fuqua. The location is unbeatable, amenities are top notch and the staff is off the charts.

There is always great ambiance at the bar, as students, professors and guests gather to share their knowledge and experience.

If you are visiting Duke, nothing beats staying at the JB Duke.

If you have business in the Duke campus area, you cannot beat the location of the JB Duke. It is a newly renovated hotel that has a beautiful lobby. The front desk was very friendly and helpful with any questions. My room was located in the older portion of the hotel. The room I had was extremely small, but it was updated nicely. If you are needing a crib or staying with children the room is almost too small. Also my TV never worked. I stayed two nights and my room was never serviced, which I found was odd. We enjoyed breakfast in the hotel which has plenty of options and an omelet bar. Again location can't be beat, but they need to work out a few kinks.

Stayed here while attending a conference at Duke. Charming staff, comfortable rooms, good restaurant and bar. All very sleek and modern which isn't my favourite style, but really comfortable and convenient. The shuttle service to the campus is useful, but it's easy to walk.

Good afternoon! Thank you for the kind words in regards to our staff, room accommodations, and food and beverage services we have to offer here at the JB Duke Hotel. I am happy to hear that the shuttle service was also readily available to you and that you chose to take in Duke's Campus during your stay, it truly is one of a kind. We do hope that you will stay with us again when you visit the Durham area. Thank you, have a great day!
