This hotel is older and it shows but mostly maintained. I booked it on Priceline as a 3.5 star hotel which would put it in the category of a Marriott or Sheraton but I assure you that is undeserved. There is limited breakfast room service only and I would not try the restaurants. Why would you when the place doesn't... More

I stay at the DoubleTree University a lot and the service is always great! My room is always clean and quiet. Very professional staff and quick to see to our needs when we have our meetings there. The WiFi is strong and the conference rooms are very nice.

This hotel is in a great location. 1 mile from downtown but away from all of the downtown traffic. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. the rooms were very clean and modern. All of the updates that you would expect from a Hilton.

From the beginning to the end, the entire process with the Hotel was great. The Hotel staff provided exceptional service. My wedding coordinator stayed in contact with the Hotel,... More

The good, bad and the what? The good: best meal from a hotel restaurant in a long time. The bad: hotel car service goes to the highest bidder. Explaination: went to front desk to reserve hotel car (as requested to do) was told 10 minutes, car is arriving back at the hotel. Went outside as hotel car was arriving. Was... More

Stayed overnight on a recent business trip room was very comfortable people are friendly and helpful. Restaurant was good sampled some of the local craft beer at the lounge very good. Denny's is right next door if you want something different. I will be back on my next trip.

Yes, this hotel is within viewing distance of the UT stadium. I suppose that drives the price up. The hotel is okay but just average for the pricey rooms. The wi-fi was good. I stayed on the 5th floor for the honors guests. There is no refrigerator. The air conditioner is a unit box in your room, next to the... More

The lobby area of this property is very nice, and I only have nice things to say about the staff, that is where the good news here stops. The hotel is literally a stones through from I-35 and if you are on that side of the building you hear traffic all night. The rooms are also in desperate need of... More

Convenient location to the downtown area and great rate. Very helpful and friendly staff. The pool was great at the end of a busy day. So close and convenient to the University of Texas and great restaurants. I advise taking an Austin Detours to get a good overview of the city for planning your stay. So much to do!
