Durham, NC – A Five-Star Hotel is set to open at the corner of Duke Street and Duke Street in Durham this summer.
The Durham-based chain is the latest to announce plans to open locations in the area.
The Duke Street location will be owned by the Durham Chamber of Commerce and the Durham County government.
Five-star hotels are a trend in the country.
The Charlotte-based company announced last month that it plans to set up a five-star room at its downtown Charlotte location.
The company is also planning to open two new hotels in the Charlotte area.
The Duke Street hotel is expected to open this summer and will include a hotel suite, spa and bar.
The Durham-owned Duke Street Hotel will be located in the Durham, Durham County section of Durham, New Jersey.
The hotel will be the second Durham hotel to be opened in the United States.
The first was the North Carolina-based hotel chain, Duke.
The new hotel will open in 2019.
The Durham Chamber is currently in talks with Duke about a hotel project in the town.
Duke plans to build a $5 billion mixed-use project with the Duke Street building.
“We are excited to welcome Duke into our community,” said Duke Chairman and CEO Jim Johnson.
“Durham is a dynamic, creative city and we believe Duke will be a tremendous addition to our community.
Durham is a great, welcoming city that has made tremendous progress in recent years and we look forward to continuing that momentum.”
