My sister was scheduled to have surgery and I wanted to be there to support her. I booked this hotel because of the Hilton's reputation for cleanliness and attention to detail. I was disappointed to find that the hotel lacked basic needs (vending machines (saw only ice vending) and a basic scale in the small fitness center). A scale is... More

Staff is always friendly and willing to go out of their way. Shuttle service to anywhere in the area and local AMTRAK station is close by. Food is great. Parking is easily accessible with parking garage connected to the hotel. Shuttle driver can take you to nearby restuarants and shopping mall.

The hotel itself is average for a Doubletree. Not bad, not great. The room was clean and up to par with Doubletree standards. The one thing I found weird, lighting was poor in the room and in the concierge lounge. In room, every fixture had compact CFLs, but they were the "daylight" CFLs, which had a harsh bluefish tint, and... More

Totally enjoyed the overall stay experience at DoubleTree. Customer friendly staff. Hotel was very clean. Rooms were spacious, clean and smelled fresh. Decor was up to date. In room food service was fast and tastey. Loved the warm cookies. Will definately be using the Brand again :-).

Friendly staff greeted us. We were there for the Jim Brickman show at the Grand. We were given coupons for free appetizers or drinks, and free breakfast. The room was very clean and beds were really comfortable!

My daughter and I stayed here to attend a concert at the Grand Opera House. This hotel was great, everyone was so nice and very professional. Room was nice and quiet and very clean. Definitely would stay here again. Right around corner from grand opera house, walking distance to many places to eat. Chinese food place (Kampo Garden) right across... More

Management needs to take a closer look at this property. The team working there do a good job but it's like putting lipstick on a pig. The building is just not up to it and needs serious changes if this place is really going to work

My stay was excellent. The room was clean neat and the temperature was right. That was my first time staying in the Double Tree hotel. I think when I decide that I need a getaway I will definitely make my reservation at the Double Tree.

this is an older property..the furniture is chipped and somewhat soiled in places. The staff is very pleasant and welcoming.. it is just that the hotel was a bit of a disappointment. We stayed in an executive room.. it had the amenities, however, the bed seemed like it was just a mattress with a padded mattress cover .. nothing to... More

Very nice hotel, conveniently located. Garage self-park on premises/easy hotel access. The warm cookie was a real treat at check in. Hotel has all amenities, you really don't have to leave. Food is very good, staff attentive.
