So let me begin by saying that if you book this hotel through someone other than them directly they will treat you horribly.. I even called Hilton directly and spoke to the highest manager I could . She told me there was nothing she could do because I booked through tripadvisor... Second "Deluxe" king room simply means you get bathrobes... More

There was a snafu upon check-in and the staff member was rather short with me, but ended up being very friendly the following few days. The rest of the staff was very friendly. The hot tub and pool area is very nice. The rooms are very clean, beds are comfortable and the atmosphere is great. I would certainly stay here... More

This hotel is the best for miles around. The staff is very helpful and the main restaurant is terrific. The rooms are clean and very comfortable and the hotel is in a very nice area. This was my second stay at this hotel but it won't be last.

Nice clean hotel with large indoor pool. Warm cookie on check-in. This location was close to a wedding venue we were attending and the hotel had a bus shuttle from the hotel to the venue. Nice lobby to hotel, and really quiet rooms. Keurig coffee machine in room with coffee, hot chocolate and tea cups. Good security with staff attentive.

New Years ever was without a doubt one of the best culinary experiences I've ever had in a Hotel.... The food was as well or better than we could have expected . Course after Course never let us down. The Disc Jockey played an array of music mixing it up and it was non stop.... The Pool and Hot Tub... More

What a delightful gem in Bristol, CT! In the midst of holiday stuff that has nothing to do with this, "holy-day," this hotel was and is a true "gift!" Let me start with the staff - stupendous, friendly, warm, welcoming, and I could go on - and this is true for everyone. At check-in, the gentleman who helped up with... More

I thought I might have had my room upgraded since the hotel wasn't full, but I ended up in a normal room. At other Hilton's and Doubletree's that I've stayed at recently, I got an auto upgrade when I checked in.

The idea was to stay one night to visit our son and the next day continue onto Vermont for a family reunion...your staff made the stay so pleasant that we decided to stay an additional night. We would like to emphasize and commend the wonderful and courteous manner of the staff at the restaurant for both dinner and breakfast...very attentive... More

I love Doubletrees. They are quite a bit more upscale than a Garden Inn, or certainly a Hampton, and they can usually be had for a comparable price. This one is lovely. Spacious lobby, very clean, very friendly and welcoming staff. The room was large, the bed comfortable, and again the step up from the other brands in the chain... More
