I needed a quick one night stay anywhere in the area as the property I was moving to had a much better rate to check in on a Monday. Since I stay in the South Florida area 2-3 weeks per month, finding a new property to try and be able to review is always fun.
This hotel has SO MUCH going for it including some good rates especially in this non-peak time of year. If you are not a big party person that needs to be in Miami or Fort Lauderdale, this part of the region is gold. The Deerfield/Pompano/Boca beaches are second to none and far less crowded. The free parking is nice and was ample near doors.
I was pleased at check-in to be upgraded as a Diamond member. They said I was in a duplex room which I assumed to be a 2 room suite. Yes but not next to each other....2 floors which was kind of neat. The good was that someone could be louder downstairs watching TV or working while the other relaxed upstairs. The 2 rooms were narrow but served the purpose. The downside was that you have to hoist your bag up the stairs to your room. Both upper and lower had nice bathrooms. The TVs on both floors were also very nice. In the bedroom, it was mounted up near the ceiling to make viewing easy from bed. I gather this was formerly a HIlton and the bed is still a Hilton bed which is perfect by me. The couch (pictured) was one of the nicest soft leather couches I have ever sat on especially for a hotel room.
So why the 3.5-4 point review? A few things jumped out as having an opportunity to be better. First, the pool area is very nice except for the hoard of smokers outside of the bar that filled the pool area with smoke. Kind of disgusting to be out enjoying the supposedly fresh air. It was not anywhere near a capacity night there either and the smoke was pretty heavy even on the far side at the hot tub. Next, the hot tub had one jet that was more like a circulation jet than an actual jet. Nice tub, no water movement. Needs to be upgraded. Lastly, the breakfast for Diamonds is in the executive lounge. Most Doubletrees do full breakfasts in their dining area vs. shuffling you off to a lounge. What made this harder to enjoy was that there are just a few tables and a couch/coffee table. No place to sit and eat even with low attendance. The host stood and watched while coffee was empty, OJ was empty and the fruit tray was empty. It was still very early so I could not understand the lack of items and the apathy by the host to take care of it. They need to either close the lounge and give the elites the full breakfast or expand the lounge to accomodate the business travelers.
I would stay here again as long as the rate was right. They need to visit some other established Doubletrees and learn how it is done.
