4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Came to town to visit UT, and all other hotels comparable to this class were closer to $300 a night. Got a room here for closer to $200 (all prices listed are before dreaded taxes). Figured that a hotel this close to the uni would likely be kind of run down, since what it really has going for it is... More

Rooms were nice and the bed was very comfortable. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. I stayed in an odd side room and there was lots of road noise from I-35 and sirens. Would recommend staying in an even room on the other side of the building. The hotel restaurant was actually very good. Traffic was so bad in... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. My little interaction with the staff was positive. The room service offerings were very good and I chose to dine in twice. The workout facilities were nice, if a bit limited for the size of the hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean. Parking's a bit weird. You park in a deck and then... More

I always choose Doubletree for the value and this hotel fit the bill for our 5 day stay. It's a neat, clean hotel (nothing fancy) in a location that is convenient for touring Austin as most of the museums and other places of interest are within one mile (a bonus for a motivated walker although crossing IH 35 does present...

Our stay at the Doubletree was not a good experience. We were not checked in properly nor did we receive a cookie. The noise in the parking lot kept us from a good night's sleep as did a sagging bed and water running from the toilet.

My wife and I ended up at this hotel unexpectedly when our previous arrangements did not work out. The last minute booking made for a reasonable, but not great nightly rate. None the less, we enjoyed our stay and found the accomodations pleasant and relaxing. My only real complaint is the quality of the room itself. There were corners of... More

The hotel is very convenient to the university and the administration area where campus tours check in. This hotel is very clean and staff is knowledgeable of the area and can direct you accordingly. Although, son made comment about its proximity to the 'large' cemetery which is adjacent to the property.

Title says it all but if you happen to stay at one of the Austin locations near downtown, you better make sure you put you trash (no matter if it's a small candy wrapper or otherwise) in the provided wastebasket because it won't get picked up if you don't. Your room will be cleaned less ANY trash left on the... More

My stay in the hotel was nice and it served my purposes. the access to the hotel is limited due to the location and the highway noise is really loud in the room. Everything else was very nice and clean as excepted. the noise was ok considering it was close to my business purposes.

When you think Doubletree you think high quality but in this hotel's case, no. This is a very cookie cutter hotel, very compact at every aspect, (i.e., lobby, restaurant, bar). I was in a group (not my booking) and we never were officially welcomed and presented the trademark cookie (I have taken groups to other Doubletree's and they give me... More
