This hotel was pretty much exactly what you would expect. Room was fine. In need of a lick of paint but perfectly comfortable for a night or two. I stayed in a Hilton Honours room. These rooms are in a little annex near the pool. Breakfast was good and served until 11.... happy days. The outside area was really nice... More

I would say, a pretty standard hotel like all the double trees. Rooms big and clean. Did not use the restaurant, as you have so many option around the peninsula. For a business trip the right hotel to stay.

I stayed 2 nights and wish I had stayed longer. The room is huge, luxurious with a super comfy bed. The hotel has nice amenities and great shower. Dining option are limited but the lounge in the lobby is nice.

We stayed here for 3 nights to get rid of our jet lag. We flew from China and met my daughters who flew from Canada. The hotel is within walking distance from a small shopping mall which has a good seafood restaurant in the back. Pizza ordered from the pool is quite tasty! Also, 2 blocks from the hotel is... More

I stayed three nights at the DoubleTree Oysterbay recently, the hotel is very nice, customer service is excellent. It's close to shopping with a view of the Indian Ocean. You can't go wrong staying here.

I stayed 1 night plus a full day the next day as I had a late long-haul flight departing just before midnight. The hotel was excellent value - for US$145 I had a large room, king bed, and an excellent breakfast. Really good night's sleep with lovely soft pillows - none of the huge, hard puffy pillows that some hotels... More

Overall the Doubletree is a dependable location to stay in the Oyster Bay/Spillway area. Reception staff mostly provides a very warm welcome. On this visit I stayed on the Hilton Rewards floor which has slightly upgraded baths (better shower head for example) so a little more up-to-date than the other rooms and has a later check-out time (good for those...

I stayed 1 night on business, would stay again. I arrived late morning, and they got me checked in by noon. The room was decent, wifi was passable (had a connection, but not a fast one), and staff was courteous and helpful. The A/C worked fine, and I had a view of the ocean. I thought the location was fine... More

Being the third Hilton hotel my wife and I have had the opportunity to stay in , within the past two years, I must say it has an extremely beautiful pool and outside area, very tight motor vehicle security and staff that made an effort. However I must add that our room had the bad smell of wet, undried fabric... More

This is a large Hotel , Room was fine , Food OK but the surrounding area was such that the Hotel Guards strongly recommend you do not leave. So you remain stuck in a very large complex. I would not return
