Modern History – Urban Elegance
Experience the best of both worlds.
No two rooms at the King’s Daughters Inn are alike. Crafted faithfully from the building’s existing layout, each guest room or suite has a unique configuration and distinct character. Choose from a wide range of 1920’s styles – from Classic to Art Deco. Though each is distinct, all rooms feature the same full slate of amenities including luxurious robes, triple-sheeted beds, all-natural toiletries, phones with personal voicemail, writing desks, flat-screen HDTVs, and individual climate control. You can just as easily connect with the world as tune it out.
Overlooking the stately oak trees of Duke’s East Campus, The King’s Daughters Inn occupies an ideal location in Durham, NC – a short walk to Duke University, downtown Durham, Brightleaf Square, and 9th street; a short drive to Research Triangle Park, Raleigh-Durham Airport, and the Durham Performing Arts Center. Though close to so many lively urban districts, it blends seamlessly into Trinity Park, one of Durham’s oldest, most established, most walkable urban neighborhoods. This location gives our Inn the feel of an urban oasis.
Historic preservation and green building practices are fully compatible because both rely on the lightest touch possible. Our commitment to both environmentally responsible building and living drove us to find creative ways to offer our guests sustainable lodging without sacrificing the warmth and charm of a historic inn, or the conveniences of a modern, luxury hotel.
Please see our section on sustainable lodging to learn about the many innovative ways we’re saving resources.
With three group event spaces, each distinct in scale and character, we can create just the right ambiance for your function. Celebrate weddings, rehearsal dinners, or family reunions; plan conferences, seminars, or awards ceremonies; stage an informal gathering of friends, an afternoon tea-party, or a partners’ retreat. Whatever the nature and scope of your gathering, we will work with you closely to ensure that we share your vision.
