My husband and I were in town for a conference and, understandably, stayed at the hotel where the conference was (not Doubletree). The hotel was awful. They gave us the wrong room, the sheets were scratch, the A/C didn't work, and we had no cold water. When I called to request some bottled water, the front desk clerk stated, "I'm... More

My room was nicely decorated and clean, with plenty of space. If you like to exercise, the hotel gym has a good selection of equipment. As others have mentioned, you pay a nightly rate for parking that most of the other large chains charge in the area. I ate several meals in the hotel restaurant and enjoyed the items ordered....

Overview: Its has updated rooms and lobby on Hotel circle. Room 416 was clean and comfortable for the week I was there. A lot of kids on the weekend so the pool was very loud, WIFI kept dropping out and had low speed. Be sure to add in $18 parking and $16 breakfast to your pricing. Fridge but no microwave... More

I had a gentleman named ador who was very rude with me when I checked out on thursday 2/19/15 morning he has bad customer service and when I asked him if I can get some service he told me I'm to busy right now and you have to wait because I'm by myself and I can't help you

We apologize that you did not enjoy your encounter with Ador at our FD. Ador is usually very personal and friendly with our guests. This type of service is unacceptable and we apologize that this happened to you during your stay. We hope that this was an isolated incident and I assure you Ador is not typically like this while...

Pool noise can be heard clearly in room. Breakfast for large group was basic, and we had to find staff to refill coffee and utensils. Had to advise check in of Hilton Honors and then, upon check out, found that the person at check in did not apply my Honor account information. Person at check out did verify she had... More

I always try to stay at Hilton properties because I have the Hilton credit card and use the points frequently for free travel.

Overall this is a nice location. I had issues with noise in my room and at check out nothing was offered to resolve it. Additionally, I asked for a King bed with balcony(paid more for it). Got two queen beds and adjacent room with bunk beds that got the balcony. Hardly the couples night we planned. Why would you give... More

I had read the mixed reviews prior to arriving so I was hoping for the best as we have stayed in Double Tree on several occasions before and always have enjoyed our time. I agree about previous reviews mentioning the small lobby, but since it was not busy when we arrived, this did not pose any problem. The lobby was... More
