This is a smaller but newer Doubletree close to the UT campus. Stayed during the week on business. Nice and quiet. They did let me check in early. Room was clean and spacious. Only complain was in the bar they couldn't make a frozen drink and they had a very limited wine selection.

Lobby, elevators and hallways were all very hot and humid.The floors seem grimy and unclean. The phone in my room did not work. The staff was unfriendly and said as little to me as possible.The room I stayed in was so humid it felt wet inside.

I so dislike chain hotels but it was only for one night (and for once was not traveling solo and had to consider my companion's preferences), I booked it. It's decent. Nothing special. Staff was nice, room clean, no issues on our end. If you want to be within easy walking distance to 6th St, stay elsewhere. From what we... More

I stayed here twice in the week. Not bad. Parking...give the idiots a ticket who park in the DO NOT PARK red zone...it is for fire. Block it off so they cant park there. I was going to eat in the cafe but not much they offer. The Denny's next door was ok. Bed and room are good. They could... More

We spent a couple of days here around Independence Day 2014. We got a double room with a mini-fridge. The room and the bathroom were very spacious and very clean and quiet (even though the hotel is close to the Interstate), the beds very comfortable and the staff were amazing! Super friendly, professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The air-con was working... More

I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms, and the staff was very friendly, too. I was greeted as I entered the hotel and assisted quickly. As I arrived to my room I had a very clean and neat room. I did not have a remote to the TV and once I called the front desk they quickly... More

If you are visiting UT campus, great location and place to stay. Near campus in Texas Capitol in Austin. Now this review is becoming a pain. Will not do another one. Does this meet your 200 character requirement.

The room was very nice and clean. One of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on... I ordered room service Monday night and they said that it would be up to the room in about 25 minutes. I waited an hour thinking the kitchen got busy. CAlled room service again and apparently no one put my order in the... More

I stay here each year when I do work at the Thompson Conference Center on the campus of the University of Texas. The warm cookies are great. The staff is friendly and very helpful. No complaints at all.

I enjoyed my stay at the hotel. My accommodations were excellent. My room was clean. When I placed a Do Not Deserve Sign on the door, I was left alone to rest. I also liked the complimentary cookie that came on the first night. My room had a coffee maker. The hotel room was spacious. The bed was large and... More
