I'm from the Saginaw area and have always heard the Double Tree is a nicer hotel but I just didn't see why that is the case. I came in from Ann Arbor for my brothers wedding and had to attempt to check in early Friday as I was involved in wedding activities all day. The staff at the front desk seemed less than interested to accomodate my request to at least pay for the room and then have my bags sent up once the room was available. All I asked was to pay for the room and then have my bags sent to the room once it was open. The staff seemed bothered that I asked this and said they would just hold my bags behind the counter until I arrived. I stated this wouldnt be until midnight and they just shook their head and said ok. I travel a lot for work and this is not an unusual request and normally the hotel staff at other hotels state its not a problem to take my bags to the room and do so without a problem once a room is ready, but its not worth getting upset over so I just moved on. Once I was finally able to check into the room I was also not that impressed. The room was pretty clean and the bathroom was nice but that was about it. The air conditioning was basically non existent which was very frustrating. It was very hot in my room and could only imagine what it would be like if more than 2 people were in it. Overall this was an average place. Even with the small discount from the block of rooms that was reserved for the wedding guests I thought it was way over priced for the area and type of hotel. Unless the prices were more affordable and representative of the hotel I wouldn't come back or recommend it to family or friends.
