Millennium Durham is located minutes away from Duke University Hospital and Duke University, and is an easy drive (if you're an athletic-minded traveler with wheels) to downtown Durham. This property boasts 316 suites and rooms, as well as all the modern comforts travelers come to expect (free WiFi, refrigerator, Keurig, and down pillows), but nothing compares to the deal hotel guests are privy to with a nearby gym.
Millennium guests are treated to free passes at the nearby Millennium Sports Club. Despite the similarity in name, there's no business relationship. The hotel provides a shuttle for guests to make the one-mile journey to this full service (no pool) fitness center. Make sure to bring your room key to the gym and sign in to get free access to a much better sweat experience than the hotel provides.
Swimmers should look to the Downtown Durham YMCA to take a dip. It'll cost you $10/day to swim, but while you're there, hit the weights to get your money's worth.
If you want to refuel from the day or the workout, Bel Gusto serves up Italian food, or you can enjoy a snack and cocktail by the fireplace at The Varsity Lounge and Grill.
