21c Museum Hotel Durham

111 N. Corcoran St. (W. Main St.) Durham NC

A unique art gallery/hotel hybrid for lovers of fun and funky style.

Four-foot-high fuchsia penguins (limited-edition sculptures by Cracking Art Group) waddle throughout this property, letting guests know immediately that their 21c experience isn’t going to be like any other hotel stay. This innovative brand is famous for merging contemporary art, service and accommodation with stunning results. The Durham outpost makes its home in the historic Hill Building, housing 125 boutique rooms and suites packed with clever, creative design and details. There’s also a full-fledged contemporary art gallery that stays open to guests round the clock (as well as to the general public 365 days a year) with guided docent tours twice a week. The accommodations showcase original terrazzo floors, high ceilings and Art Deco windows that let in a flood of natural light. Composed of fresh, seasonal building blocks, the dishes at the Counting House kitchen are as visually appealing as the rest of the hotel. The menu highlights modern regional cuisine and craft cocktails in a space that was once occupied by the Ellis Stone department store. A fitness center, sleek meeting spaces and an in-house spa round out the extras here.
