“Family wedding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Overall the experience from a family/guest of the wedding it was good. A bit expensive for drinks/room but I know most hotels at this time of year increase their prices. The wedding itself was interrupted by an airplane going over so it was difficult for the guest to hear, but that is beyond control with the airport being located nearby. The staff at the hotel were extremely nice. We had fun!

I searched the web sight for a good place to stay near Fletcher Allen Hospital where I had a doctors appointment. I found this one online and it looked great! When I first pulled into the parking lot of this Hotel, I knew it was going to be GREAT! The premises was so inviting...all decorated for Fall. Very clean! The young lady at the front desk couldn't be more helpful and she was assisting three different parties of people at the same time. The cleaning staff was also very friendly. Our room was just wonderful. The beds and pillows (and I'm fussy about those items), were just like laying on a marshmallow! So puffy and inviting. I slept like a baby. The room was spotless and odorless. Our room was on the first floor, right near an entrance. So we parked our car literally right outside the door and didn't have to walk far at all, to our room. I would definitely return for another stay here. Best Hotel in Burlington! I'm also telling all of my friends about it. Thank you for such a wonderful experience. Oh, and don't forget about the chocolate chip cookie that you receive as soon as you arrive. They are the BEST!! Thank you!

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor and it was great!

Wow! What a great relief after injuring myself 2600 miles from home to check into the Double Tree in Burlington, VT. I usually hate staying in hotels and sleeping in used beds but this place was clean and everything felt new and fresh. Special thanks to Sarah at the front desk for being so helpful, kind and professional.

My grandparents and I stayed for an extended weekend in August. The front desk was helpful from beginning to end, especially in calling taxis and giving more cookies :) the adjoining restaurant is also great as well. The pool and fitness center were clean and spacious.
There are some things in walking distance but if you want to get downtown, you should either drive or get a taxi. There is a mall nearby and several restaurants.

The beds are comfortable, but my grandparents had a difficult time fitting into the double bed. It was still a relaxing sleep for all of us. Our rooms were always clean and housekeeping deserves an award for the amazing job they did!

Like most DoubleTrees, this hotel made our experience even better!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at the Doubletree by Hilton Burlington. We are so glad that you found our staff to be helpful throughout your stay, and that our services and amenities were comfortable for you. In the future you may want to look into booking a suite, which would provide a King bed, as well as a Queen sized pull out bed.

Second August in a row at this hotel.
Reminded of that old wood/hamster smell inside.

On Sunday night there were towels left on the ground outside, around the bins outside the swimming pool. Watched as a skunk stood on them as it tried to climb into the trash cans. I wouldn't like to think of getting one of those towels.
No microwave, lots of pet owners.

Will probably check out other hotels in the area if I'm back next year, in-spite of collecting hhonors points almost exclusively.

I thought that the price per night was more in the range of a place that has more up to date decor and furnishing.

Poor door closing mechanisms, other guests allowed their doors to slam shut from wide open at midnight and 7am

Friendly desk staff, practical location.

Stayed here recently with my 2 children. Check in/out was a breeze. My children loved the warm cookies at check in. Staff was very friendly. We booked a double room. The room was clean, but very small. Sink located at door entry and bathroom quarters were close. Very narrow passway between beds and dressers/desks. We didn't spend a lot of time in the room, but I think I would reserve a suite, when staying here again, for a little more breathing room.

We did have an issue with a leaking toilet, however, Jen at the front desk, promptly sent maintenance, who repaired the issue in a timely manner. Jen then called back to offer a comp breakfast for my family. Not necessary, but I appreciated this gesture.

The hotel was centrally located, with easy access to UVM and the highway. Withing walking distance is a bagel shop, Dunkin Donuts and McDonalds. as well as a few other small restaurants. The hotel has a restaurant onsite, though we only at breakfast here.

My son enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. Well equipped fitness room. Nice grounds outside, with a seating area outside of the pool. Overall, would recommend as a nice place to stay while visiting.

We stayed here while visiting daughter at University of Vermont. Wondered aloud why there were no King rooms available on-line and they instantly upgraded us to a king. Room was quiet, clean and the beds were very comfortable. Glad there was a fridge. We ate in the hotel's restaurant one evening and again for breakfast. (The food was pretty good although the service was lacking both times) .The DoubleTree was much cleaner,friendlier and a better value than others we have tried on this strip (Sheraton and LaQuinta). It will be our go-to hotel while in Burlington on short jaunts from now on.
