I drove up at 9:00 pm and parked in the dark parking lot front of the cemetery...literally a tombstone 18 in. in front of my car. After checking in I was told to go back outside to put a parking permit on my car and to use a more convenient rear door to get to my room. The rear door... More

We stayed one night at Doubletree in the University area of Austin. The hotel lobby is fine and the staff were fairly friendly, but the hotel was just okay. They have a dining room but we never saw anyone using it. We were there for 1 day only but probably would stay somewhere else next time.

Best value in Austin. Unparelled staff. You will be thankful you booked here. Great location, excellent staff and overall, best in Austin. We were there for a graduation at UT and could not be more impressed.

We had a great experience with our stay. We had a graduation to attend at the Frank Erwin Center. The hotel was very close and we simply walked to the graduation from the hotel as there is a crosswalk and bridge very close. All of the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Everything great except the lighting in the room and especially the bath room was too dark. All other services were excellent. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I would stay here again.

The Doubletree by Hilton, University area, Austin, is a tired, worn hotel in desperate need of refurbishing. Do not stay there until Hilton gives some needed attention to this property. I paid $189 per night for a dimly-lit, well-worn room next to the I-35 freeway. Terrible location--I heard every car and truck go by for two days! Dirty, worn carpet... More

This was the most horrible hotel I have ever stayed at ! I would not recommend anyone to stay there from the food to the housekeeping to the professionalism of the staff. The location was the only thing that was worth my stay. BEWARE OF THIS HOTEL IF YOU GO TO AUSTIN !

It is close to the University area but you have to cross the highway. Next time I will take an hotel on the other side of the I35. The room was excellent but the service very limited. The restaurant is small so you have to go outside and cross the highway...

Stayed at Double Tree last week while I was there for a conference. I was in one of their Queens room which had two queen sized beds. Pros: 1. Spacious rooms with two queen sized beds and still enough space to move around. Quality of beds was v good. 2. Working table/Wifi 3. LED Tv with quite a few channels... More
