Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Durham. In no time you'll be strolling peaceful gardens on the Duke University campus or watching the minor-league Durham Bulls hit the baseball diamond on a balmy summer day.
Our hotels in Durham put you close to the Research Triangle Park, a center of high-tech industry. It wasn't so long ago that the tobacco crop fed the fortunes of this Piedmont town. At Duke University, learn about tobacco baron Washington Duke's rise to riches at the Duke Homestead State Historic Site, where you can tour Duke's early home and tobacco farm. Then stroll the Sarah P. Duke Gardens and admire the impressive Gothic-style Duke Chapel, both on the college's West Campus. When the weather warms, head downtown to the retro-style Durham Bulls Athletic Park, home of the Triple-A minor-league baseball team made famous in the movie 'Bull Durham.'
Our hotels in Durham put you near celebrated local restaurants in what's been called the "Foodiest Small Town in America." You can dine in no-frills barbecue joints on pulled-pork barbecue and fried chicken, or you can reserve a table in one of the city's nationally recognized eateries, where innovative chefs serve updated Southern classics. Shop and dine downtown in the century-old tobacco warehouses at Brightleaf Square, or browse the antique shops along Gregston Street nearby. After hours, head out from our Durham hotels to the cafes, shops and live-music clubs of buzzing Ninth Street District.
Book your room in our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Durham in September for the Bull Durham Blues Festival or for the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in April. Dance companies from around the world gather at the celebrated American Dance Festival held in June and July on the Duke campus.

I enjoyed the view from the 9th floor of this Holiday Inn near the Crabtree mall. I enjoyed staying in for dinner after a long drive.[Less]
We have stayed at this facility time and again because of its proximity to our family in Apex, NC and feel like we are always welcome guests. The facility is very clean and comfortable and has all[More] the amenities we need with the fitness center and free laundry and free coffee. Parking is never a problem. We buy our own food at nearby grocery stores and cook our own meals. Therefore, we do not use the Community Cupboard, but we have noticed that many healthy food choices are available for families with children. We now know virtually all of the staff members--including the cleaning and maintenance personnel--and find them to be like old friends we are coming back to see for a couple of months, in addition to being with our family. It is and always has been a very enjoyable experience to stay here.[Less]
