A couple of weeks ago, we had the opportunity to preview the new Unscripted Hotel by Dream Hotel Group in Durham. The doors first opened on July 19, following a $19.5M property-wide renovation.

The new hotel is located at 202 N. Corcoran, the former Jack Tar Motor Lodge, and is a 74-room, boutique hotel with five locally-inspired food and beverage venues and a rooftop pool deck and lounge. Located in the heart of downtown and within walking distance from the American Tobacco Campus, Durham Bulls Athletic Park, DPAC, restaurants and bars.

When we first arrived, we were greeted with cocktails and socializing/networking before being escorted upstairs for a tour of the hotel.

We were able to tour a couple of the rooms, which are furnished with complimentary WiFi, smart LED HD TVs with Netflix and Hulu, USB charging stations, Bluetooth sound system and a fully-stocked minibar.

Following our tour, we were led out to the Patio, a retro-inspired poolside lounge that overlooks the Durham skyline. Here we were treated to a sampling of the menu items and cocktails.

The Patio features food items such as Sushi Cones, Chuka Bun Bun, Carolina Popcorn, the Patio Burger, Lamb Pops and the Fullsteam Roasted Chicken. We look forward to visiting again sometime, perhaps for a weekend, staycation, getaway.
