    Great Place to bring a large dog!!!

    We recently stayed at the Hilton Durham near Duke University for our son's baseball tournament. We picked this hotel because they allowed for large dogs. The hotel is perfect for anyone traveling with pets. They are very accommodating for pet owners. They have extra poop bags and a place to drop your dog's poop in the back of the hotel.

    All of the staff were amazing but we did have one staff member that my wife and I wanted to highlight, Alexander Taylor. He was so friendly and attentive during our entire stay. He answered questions and was very friendly with our husky Eli. If you're planning your next trip to the Durham area and especially if you're traveling with a dog, The Hilton Durham near Duke University should be first on your list of hotels!!!!

    Great Stop With Puppers

    Not only is the staff welcoming to dogs, there are plenty of areas to walk them! Definitely would stay here again if ever in the area.

    Great staff and very pet friendly

    The staff alone make this hotel worth staying in. The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel is pet friendly, and the staff goes out of their way to be accommodating to the pet as well as their humans. They are very understanding when a pet “accident” happens.
