I love traveling to + exploring new areas - especially when that travel involves a place like The Durham Hotel (Durham, NC). The moment we pulled up to unload our bags, it was obvious that booking this particular hotel was a smart move. Its striking exterior has a sleek, impressive design and the interiors are fully decked out in mid-century modern decor. When we got to our room, we found thick, hooded robes and white slippers waiting for us (sooo cozy), along with a tray full of local snacks and chocolates. After a full day of eating, sipping and checking out some local shops downtown, we returned to our room to find the lights on low, chocolates on our pillows and classical music softly playing from the ihome sitting on the nightstand.  So many fun little touches, which made this a really hard place to leave! With a super clean room, relaxing stay, and such a friendIy, accommodating staff - we just can't wait to go back.
