“Avoid rooms facing the highway (noisy)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Good service. Decent facilities, although the pool was very small, and the tiny gym only had free weights and a few treadmills/elliptical. Rooms facing the highway are extremely noisy from traffic through the night. Ask for a room not facing the highway. A/C provides white noise, but point at the bed and cannot be redirected using the vents. Rooms have low ceilings and feel a bit cramped. This hotel is right across from UT.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The staff was very courteous and helpful, the room was comfortable and attractive (the black and white photos of Austin are especially effective), all the amenities were in place and high quality, and the location was ideal for anyone to get to downtown or the university; in our case, we were able to walk to and from the stadium. However, there is a hospital very near by and we heard amublances numerous times both nights. We have a sound box that plays numerous different sleep-inducing sounds that we will bring with us next time. Otherwise, it gets an A+ from us.

The hotel was average. The young ladies serving our meals were most accommodating, pleasant and efficient. The steak on Thursday night was tough and dry. The rest of the food was plentiful and adequate in taste.

My daughter and I have enjoyed this hotel on our visit to Austin twice already and the service and experience has been great. The hotel is nice and clean. Great amenities and service. Nice comfy beds and pillows. A lot of pillow (just the way, I like it).

The hotel staff was cleaning the carpets in the elevator lobbies on the 1st and 5th floors (I don't know about the other floors). This facility is always clean and well kept. I love staying at the Double Tree and I look forward to more stays.

This hotel has been remodeled in the lobby area since the last visit several years ago. It is very nice, modern and efficient. Very pleasing. Staff very nice & attentive. Rooms are dated but clean. They have not been updated. Elevators were hot! It was 100 degrees outside but it was 90 in the elevator & 80+ in the elevator lobby. The room AC did not cool well. Overall a good hotel but not 'very good'.

Found a special rate for this hotel and was happy I selected the hotel. The staff at the front desk was extremely friendly handling the check-in process with speed and smiles. They were helpful in pointing out a few places I might like to see during my stay and offered to be my point of contact should I have any issues. The room was very clean. The hotel is not new but you can tell they take very good care of the property. The bed was comfortable and the linens were fresh. The room had a great view of the capital building.

I used the fitness center and ate in the restaurant. The wait staff in the restaurant worked together to keep everyone served. Again there were plenty of "good mornings" and smiles all around. The equipment in the fitness center was in good working order and I had no problems completes all phases of my workout.

I would recommend this hotel as that place combining a great rate and a comfortable experience.

Room Tip: ask for the capital view
