I chose the Millennium Durham hotel because it was close to a wedding I was attending on Duke Campus, as well as a quick drive to downtown Durham to explore. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. They are doing some renovations in parts of the hotel, but I did not notice any strange smells or loud noises because of it. There were a couple small aesthetic things inside our room that were probably due to the renovations: the shower faucet was pretty wiggly, some paint smudges. But really nothing that effected our stay. Sound does travel a bit between rooms/the hallway/from outside (our room was on the ground floor, so that's on us for choosing that floor!), but nothing that kept us up at night. Overall, we had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay, and the price is very reasonable compared to other hotels of the same quality in the area. Would definitely recommend the Millennium Durham to friends visiting the area!
