University towns and college settings often make
solid family-friendly choices for meetings because
many are already reaching out to families on a
regular basis. Gregg Hilker, general manager of JB
Duke Hotel pointed out the property is right on
the Duke University campus – a destination for so
many families making the incredibly important
decision of what college to attend.
"Very often, visits are made by the entire family
exploring campus, attending a sporting event,
visiting the Nasher Museum, Duke Gardens and
the many other family-friendly venues on campus
and in Durham," he said. "Being a part of Duke
University, families are integrated into what we do
The property, which recently reopened fol-
lowing a two-year, $62 million renovation and
expansion, often caters to families who have had
several generations attend Duke. "We tend to take
a look at every guest interaction generationally
versus as just a transaction," Hilker said. "It won't
be long before today's students will be back with
their families to attending a sporting event, alumni
weekend, parents weekend or bringing their own
children or grandchildren to visit with hope of
keeping the long-standing tradition of a Duke
education in the family."
