A Contemporary Hotel Nestled On Duke University’s Campus

When you are visiting Duke University, we invite you to enjoy a tranquil retreat at one of Durham’s premier lodging destinations. Our 198 spacious guestrooms and suites welcome you with warm neutral tones accented by the deep blue hues of Duke University’s palette. Each of our guestrooms is equipped with an outstanding selection of modern amenities, and inside our spa-inspired guest bathrooms you will find a delightful collection of complimentary Gilchrist & Soames London Collection soaps, lotions and shampoos. Come and experience a uniquely modern twist on Southern hospitality. We welcome those guests who are traveling for reasons related to Duke University to stay with us at both the JB Duke Hotel and the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club. However, should you find you will be in Durham for reasons other than those related to Duke University, please visit to reserve your room at the Inn located just across the street from the JB Duke Hotel.

While we are here offering heartfelt, Southern hospitality to all of our guests, you will find we’ve amended some of our services due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have suspended daily housekeeping service, valet parking, and bell service. All guests are required to wear face masks in public spaces of the JB Duke Hotel, unless actively dining. Our spectacular team of hospitality professionals is thrilled to be here to welcome you.

The JB Duke Hotel welcomes guests of all abilities. Our building entrance, registration desk, elevator, rooms and suites are ADA compliant under the Department of Justice 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design. For more information about accessible and non-accessible features, please see our Accessibility Statement.

Welcome to your Durham home away from home, where comfort and convenience connect.

Unwind with a cocktail in our Lobby Lounge, indulge in post-game eats and take in the energizing atmosphere of our dining room bar or enjoy an a la carte meal in our full-service restaurant.
