We stayed at the DoubleTree Suites for one night. While the property appears to be lovely at first glance, it is clear upon further inspection that the rooms have not been properly maintained.
Location: This hotel is in the heart of the Carmel medical district. There are many hospitals and medical facilities in the surrounding area. It takes about 25 minutes to get to the city center.
Pros: The towels are lovely, large and fluffy. The bedding is comfortable. (It is so nice to have real bedding and not a scratchy polyester bead spread.) The TV's are large but not obtrusive. The air conditioning works marvelously. It is fantastic to have a fridge and microwave. The decor is understated and comforting. The front desk staff was lovely. The pool area is very nice with pleasant places to sit with friends.
Cons: The carpet was filthy! And I mean really disgustingly gross filthy. It was the first thing I noticed about the room. I assumed that it was simply stained. But when walking barefoot some of the spots were actually sticky! I don't know that I've ever been in a hotel room that I was afraid to walk barefoot in. There were also numerous cigarette burns in the carpet. The other things are just details. But all the details add up to giving the place a pretty run-down feel. The bathtub drained very slowly so water was up to my ankles while showering. The hook on the bathroom door had been torn down and replaced with one screw so it hung haphazardly. The sink was cracked. There was trash in our room when we came in and drink rings on the end tables. While we registered four people into our room there were only two glasses and three towels. The sheets for the pull out bed were ripped. Our receipt was not delivered under our door in the morning. The cookies were hard. (Okay, that one's pretty picky.)
I know that some rooms are probably in great shape. Sadly, ours was not. Enough so that I would not stay here again and I would not recommend it to others.
