Event FAQ

Booking the Inn or a block of rooms

Can I reserve the entire first floor (Sun porch, Parlor and Dining room)?

Book the entire Inn (17 rooms) and you are welcome to the entire first floor and the Brodie Duke Hall at no additional cost. If you have not booked any rooms at the Inn and have under 48 guests, you are welcome to book either the Parlor (cocktail style for up to 25) or Dining Room (48). If you have over 48 guests you must book the Brodie Duke Hall.

In order to ensure privacy for your event, and that of the other guests of The King’s Daughters, a block of guest rooms may be required to secure a particular event site. You will be informed of these requirements based on your site selection and vision.

I have up to 100 people attending our reception, are you able to accommodate us?

Yes, if you book the entire Inn, you are welcome to use the entire first floor and the Brodie Duke Hall at no cost. However, due to city zoning restrictions, even though the capacities of these rooms add up to more than 100 people, not more than 100 total people at any one time can be accommodated in the event spaces. Please keep in mind the Inn does not have a room large enough to hold all 100 people at any one time.

How do I go about securing a block of Guest Rooms?

Room blocks are handled through or 919. 354.7000 x203.

Why should I book the entire Inn?

The King’s Daughters Inn is the perfect setting for any event offering the best combination of lodging and privacy. Imagine all of your friends and family under one roof, enjoying cocktails in the parlor before dinner, attending a bridal brunch in the dining room or rent the Inn for a business retreat.

An event at the Inn inspires memories that no large hotel can provide.  Everyone is able to mingle with those closest to them before the big day providing a family reunion atmosphere. Book the entire Inn and enjoy:

  • Exclusive use of the Inn — 20,000 square feet including three events spaces and seventeen luxury rooms and suites.
  • Overnight accommodations for 46.
  • Gourmet breakfast for all overnight guests.
  • Complimentary use of tables, chairs, linens, glassware and table setup.
  • Full commercial kitchen available to your choice of licensed caterer.

Do I have to pay for each of my guest’s overnight accommodations?

You have a number of different options. You are welcome to pay for everyone’s accommodations, a few, or none. Additionally, you can also choose to subsidize a partial amount of your guest’s rooms.

What is included with your room block rate?

A "whole house" Inn rental includes exclusive use of all event spaces, overnight rooms, linens, tables/chairs, glassware, flatware, china, and access to our kitchen (for a full-service caterer). All guests spending the night receive afternoon tea, port and chocolates at turn down, a hot gourmet breakfast the next morning and have access to complimentary wireless internet and an iPad in their rooms.

What time is check-in?

Check-in starts at 3 p.m. Checkout is at 11 a.m. You are welcome to request early check-in on your reservation; however, this is not guaranteed and is often dependent on the guest staying prior to your arrival. If you require a guestroom to dress or otherwise prepare for your event, we strongly suggest reserving a room the night before the event. Arrangements can be made to store luggage for later departures. Please advise your guests accordingly.

We have welcome bags for my out-of-town guests; can the Front Desk hand out gift bags at check in?

The front desk is able to hand out a card or note at check-in. To have us hand out gift bags or place them in the rooms, we would need them 24 hours prior to check-in.

Do you allow pets?

At this time we do not allow any pets. We are happy to recommend quality local boarding options. Our preferred boarder is the Creature Comforts Inn. www.creaturecomfortsinn.com 200 West Cornwallis Road Durham, NC 27707-2934 (919) 489-1490

Do I have to schedule a tour to view the facility?

At any one time a private event may be hosted at the Inn. Therefore, we ask that you notify us in advance with a phone call or email prior to you arriving for a tour. In order to maintain our goal of providing a truly unique experience for your event, we strongly recommend you take a tour of the property in person prior to firmly selecting your event site.
