Garden Courtyard Hosts Events

Duke Tower receives many compliments and referrals from guests for which we are greatly appreciative. One aspect of Duke Tower that is mentioned over and over again is the beautifully-landscaped courtyard and garden, a wonderful discovery sheltered from the sites and sounds of Durham by the hotel that surrounds it.

Carefully planned and lovingly cared for by Duke Tower staff, this little-known gem is enjoyed by the guests whose hotel suites face the lush courtyard. It is also the site for many Durham gatherings:  family reunions, graduations, small wedding parties, corporate or social events, anniversary celebrations, musical performances, art displays and organizational events.

From a small dinner group of 15 inside the historic Tower Cafe to more sizable event of 200 in the flower and art-filled courtyard, events range from casual to formal in a completely unique Durham setting.

Not only does Duke Tower’s Garden Courtyard provide a stunning and unusual backdrop for an event, the hotel’s other offerings, such as the recreation area, the charming Tower Café or the sparkling pool can also be incorporated into the plans.

Located minutes away from Duke University and Duke Medical Center, combined with the hotel’s partnerships with many area healthcare providers, arts venues and business organizations, Duke Tower’s Garden Courtyard is a convenient setting for events.  There is also plenty of free parking.

Rental fees are based on the area of the courtyard to be used and the specific arrangements to fit your needs. An event at Duke Tower is especially ideal if there are guests arriving from outside of Durham with package rates for a combined courtyard event and overnight accommodations.

Whether for a social, family or business event, Duke Tower’s Garden Courtyard provides a distinctive and enjoyable venue for memorable event.  More photos are on the courtyard phototour section of the hotel website.
