I expected more from this Doubletree hotel. I stayed at a Doubletree hotel in NY metropolitan area and had a good experience in a hotel with very high traffic. So I expected this from the Doubletree in Alpharetta as it is somewhere in a suburbs of Georgia. It turned out this hotel is very average. I would rate it to about the same level as a Holiday Inn, which it should be above that. It is very small like a motel you pull over for the night on one of the Interstates. It was definitely not a business hotel. The front desk treated me like a second citizen because I booked my reservation through one of the travel websites. That was my mistake #1. Book your reservation through their website. However, Marriot never treated me like this, so there's the comparison. The room was somewhat outdated, reminds me of the 70s/80s. There were stains on the comforters, which I did take a picture and will post it when I get a chance. Other than that, it appeared clean. However, there was no bathtub, just a shower made of very cheap material. For the pros. There was free Wifi, so that was good. I also slept well as the bed was very comfortable from my point of view. The AC/heater appears brand new, so at least I could take comfort in the fact that I'm probably breathing clean air. I just made sure I stayed away from the part of the comforter where there were stains.
In the morning, I made sure the stains were clearly visible for the cleaners, but that comforter was still there when I came back at night. The room was somewhat quiet, but I could hear the guy next door with his television as well as when other guests close their doors. This never cut off my sleep; however. Would I stay here again? Maybe, but only if there are no availability at the Marriot and the other hotels in the area.
As a tip, for breakfast, go across the street as there is a Starbucks there. When I was there, I drove to Starbucks, grabbed a quick fix and headed to my clients.
