I enjoyed my recent three night stay at the DoubleTree Inn near the University of Texas campus in Austin from the facilities (pool, exercise room), the lobby seating areas, good breakfasts, and friendly bar service. My room was comfortable and clean and I had good, free wifi.

I'm not usually so negative about a Hilton brand hotel as we are diamond and usually very pleased but there was almost nothing good I can say about this hotel. I will start with the one positive. Check in was good the young Ladies that worked the front desk were pleasant. Past that nothing good. This was our second try... More

This was an excellent hotel. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and the bed comfortable. The breakfast buffet was very good with excellent choice. This hotel is a short walk from the State Capital building which is one of the bet guided tours I have ever done and it was free! The hotel is... More

Very conveniently located hotel and very friendly staff-truly enjoyed my stay. Looks fresh and newly remodeled-will come back. Next to University of Texas and downtown-takes only a few minutes to go to 6th street and can see UT stadium from the hotel.

Our conference negotiated a contract with the sales office of this particular DoubleTree months in advance. However, when it was time to check in, the sales rep had changed our room assignments and given us less rooms (and beds) than we had agreed to in our contract. Then, when we checked out, we were told that we were being charged... More

This was a decent hotel and if you like the location then it'll work well for you. It's not near downtown, so you'll have to drive to get most places. I was not happy with being far away from all the action. We had to stay here because it was a busy weekend and everything else was booked. It was... More

Really like the hotel. Staff was friendly, rooms were nice & overall pretty quiet/comfy. Only issue was that room kind of smelled like feet at first & didn't get towels refreshed after first night but was okay because I didn't use but a couple. Only thing the room could've used was a fridge. Overall, really liked this hotel.

Hot in hallways and elevators...no one to assist you with luggage when we got there or when we got ready to check-out. Positive room was clean and cookie at check was good as always. Paid quite a bit for lousy service.

Thank you for leaving us a review and providing us with valuable feedback. I am so sorry we were not able to exceed your expectations during your stay. Our hotel does not have a valet or bell service department , though our desk agents or management are always happy to lend a hand. This should had been offered as a... More

Really nice hotel, as to be expected. Comfy beds, great service, great location. The two things keeping this from being a 5 star experience: -I asked the bartender where we should head for dinner "I don't know, I don't live around here". Sorry dude, but you work at a place where all of your customers "don't live around here", and... More
