Pretty hotel- recently remodeled. Pool was beautiful, a nice calm retreat! The hotel diner was surprisingly good- basic fare, but really fresh! All the staff that I encountered was extremely nice- and of course, the cookies are HEAVEN!!

Stayed two nights for a UT recruiting trip. Love the location and wanted to like the hotel. Lobby, bar, and breakfast area are all well-maintained and attractive. Elevators are extremely slow, loud, and do not inspire confidence. The rooms are mostly clean, though the paint on doors, around light switches, etc is very dirty and visually takes away from other... More

This DoubleTree was selected as the recommended hotel for our meeting, particularly due to its location across from the University campus. The hotel was a very good value and a pleasant experience. Very attentive service and clean, attractive lobby and rooms.

We stayed at the Doubletree near UT in Austin, Texas while visiting our son and his girlfriend. This was our first time in Austin and he suggested we stay there, it is close to his home and the university. The hotel is very clean, updated and friendly. A good location not far from downtown but at a much more affordable... More

The room and furnishings were excellent. The location was superior for University-related events. A thunderstorm at night kept me awake for about an hour, but Austin needed a rain. I will plan another stay at Doubletree next year.

This experience was much improved from our previous one that was one prior. Room 301 did not have a must smell and the value was good. However their was rust in the shower and no stopper in the bathroom sink.

The hot water did not work and I did not realize till the following morning when I was getting ready for a meeting. For some reason the hot water in my room was off and had to be turned on. Other than that my stay was very good and breakfast buffet was great.

There was a Huge cemetary outside my window for the view. Other than that, the hotel was ok. it was below the typical double tree service level/expectations Did not use the other amenities, as I was there for business and had no time to vacation.

The location of this hotel was the best part for us, right across I-35 from UT campus and the state history museum (it was important for us to not have to use the highway during rush hour... weekday trip w/ Austin traffic). Our room was near the elevator, but we did not hear much hallway noise. We felt the cost... More

Those alone are my sole reason for staying here! Room was great. Get a suite - you won't regret it. Front desk staff were excellent and the view was not bad either. By the end of the week, bartender had my order down solid. I will definitely stay here again.
