I stay at this Doubletree 3 or 4 times a year for business. While there are other nearby hotels (Marriott, Hilton Garden Inn, Sierra, etc), I stay here out of habit and for the Hilton points.
On the positive side, the staff is wonderful. They are very nice and very accomodating. The flat panel TVs are nice, but most Doubletrees have these now. I ordered room service and it came ontime and the food was good for a Doubletree.
On the negative side, I've noticed a couple of negatives in my last few stays. My room was starting to show a lot of wear, especially the carpets. Additionally, the tiny bathroom with it's 1987 fiberglass shower enclosure is really looking bad. Most of the redone rooms these days have opened up the bathrooms were possible to give them a less closed in feel. The problem with this property is that there would need to be a serious rework to get rid of the fiberglass surround and open up the bathroom. There just may not be enough space in the room to make the bathroom larger.
Additionally, there were a few items broken in my room. The light inside the shower was burned out. Normally, this is not an issue, but because of the way the shower surround is closed in, there is little light entering the shower space from the other bathroom light. It's a small thing, but one that the maid should easily catch when she's cleaning the shower. Unless, she's not really cleaning the shower...
The desk lamp was also broken, with the light hanging down. Again, hard to miss if you are cleaning the room.
In the end, this is a good hotel if you're in the area for business and you're chasing Hilton points. Otherwise, hit the Marriott.
