Location: At first look I thought the location would be a huge con because it is not right in the middle of downtown like most of the other hotels, but we found it very walkable to UT, LBJ Library, the Capitol Building, and 6th street. We found ourselves taking a cab back to the hotel from downtown after a day/night... More

We stayed in a hotel close to a university in Des Moines, IA, and it was the worst hotel and worst experience ever. So this Double Tree close to the university was a very pleasant surprise. Room and bathroom were very clean. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend. The ice machine was broken on our floor, which... More

I feel the Double Tree brand is trying to provide good quality for the price. The Buffet breakfasts still seems to be a bit on the down side. The standard eggs seem to be difficult to get right. Way overcooked. Eggs always hard. Potatoes soft with moisture...

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.
