DURHAM’S KING’S DAUGHTERS INN SNAGS AAA DIAMOND RATING & SELECT REGISTRY STATUS

Here is our press release from last week about our new awards! We are so honored to be presented awards from these prestigious industry organizations.


Durham, NC - Durham’s newest, luxury Inn, The King’s Daughters Inn, has recently acquired dual recognition this month from both AAA and Select Registry.

Since the Inn’s opening in 2009, the boutique Inn has gained a local and national following of supporters and patrons. Located in the heart of Trinity Park in downtown Durham, the Inn has the charm of a bed & breakfast including afternoon tea with home made scones and muffins, turndown service with port and chocolate truffles and full, hot breakfast, but includes the modern amenities of a high end hotel (i.e. wireless internet, in room Mini Mac computers, large 42” flat screen tvs and an in house massage therapist).

Select Registry, a group of industry professionals that grades independent bed & breakfasts as well as small luxury hotels throughout North America visited the Inn for it’s anonymous evaluation in March. The organization scrutinizes over 200 qualities of upscale inns, bed & breakfasts and small hotels to seek the “distinguished inns of North America”. The King’s Daughters Inn met the extremely high expectations of the inspector and have been inducted into the Select Registry elite.

AAA awarded the 17 room, Art Deco style Inn as a Four Diamond Rating of Approved Lodging. According to the AAA website, Four Diamond is described as “These establishments are upscale in all areas. Accommodations are progressively more refined and stylish. The physical attributes reflect an obvious enhanced level of quality throughout. The fundamental hallmarks at this level include an extensive array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service, and attention to detail.” The Inn will be listed in the 2012 edition of the AAA North Carolina Tour Book guide that is released in May.
