The Ninth Street District in Durham is where this place shows off its college town charm. The street is lined with old growth trees, funky shops, restaurants and bars. Adjacent to the street was a more than 20 acre parcel of land that had been undeveloped for decades. In the last few years, construction has brought residences and a shopping center, and now a new hotel.
Just in time for the holidays, Hilton Garden Inn has announced the opening of the 128 room Hilton Garden Inn Durham/University Medical Center. The hotel joins more than 65 others in Durham that offer over 8,000 rooms.
The new Hilton Garden Inn Durham/University Medical Center is the second collaboration between The Olympia Companies and SMART Hotels, with the goal of providing exceptional lodging facilities for Duke University and the Duke Medical Center guests. The hotel is managed by Olympia Hotel Management.
