Sugar Plum Brunch and holiday dining among memorable experiences available at Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club
The popular Durham hotel property is ringing in the holiday season with delectable cuisine, signature décor, warm ambiance and a staycation giveaway inspired by A Christmas Carol
DURHAM, N.C., December 12, 2022 – Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club, the AAA Four Diamond hotel property located on Duke University’s campus, is accepting reservations for festive dining experiences and stays throughout the holiday season. Highlights include traditional Afternoon Tea, Sugar Plum Brunch on Christmas Eve, and special prix fixe dinner menus for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve.
The Washington Duke Inn is a favorite destination for holiday celebrations of all sizes and continues its annual tradition of adorning the property with more than 20 Christmas trees and trimmings. Adding to the excitement of the season, the Inn and JB Duke Hotel welcomed talented cast members from Theatre In The Park’s internationally acclaimed musical comedy, “A Christmas Carol,” to experience the festive décor on full display. In this year’s holiday video Scrooge joined Tiny Tim, Fezziwig partygoers and chimney sweeps to rediscover the holiday spirit and help the hotel properties share warm holiday wishes with their valued guests.
One lucky guest will win a special holiday staycation package that includes a one-night stay with breakfast for two at JB Duke Hotel, dinner for two at Fairview Dining Room and two tickets to see “A Christmas Carol,” which runs from December 14-18 at the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) in Durham.
