“Very Nice Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2009

I recently traveled to Burlington to attend 3-days of work meetings at the Doubletree Hotel. I brought my wife along and we stayed a few days extra to enjoy what Burlington had to offer.

It's about a 5 minute drive from the airport to the hotel. I believe they provide a free shuttle service to and from the airport; however, I rented a car so I don't know the specifics on that.

Check in was quick and easy and yes, we did receive the warm cookies that other reviewers seem to bring up. My wife loved them and may have gone back every morning for more?

We stayed in a two room, King suite and it was worth the additional price. The room had a couch, table with chairs and tv in the main room. A small bar area with full fridge, microwave and sink separated the main room from the bedroom. The bedroom was spacious, even with a king bed, and had plenty of closet space and drawers for your clothes. The bathroom was clean (one thing I'm big on) with a big, spacious sink area and the shower had good water pressure. If I could add anything to the room it would be a DVD player. Most hotels don't have them, but it would be a nice perk as we had brought along several movies to watch late at night before calling it a night.

The hotel's location is great. It's not the downtown area, but Church Street is only about a 10 minute drive by basically taking a left turn out of the parking lot and following the road through the University of Vermont. There are numerous restaurants within a mile of the hotel (McDonalds, Starbucks, BK, Applebees, IHOP, Pizza, etc) as well as University Mall is close by.

The staff at the hotel was very friendly and I would have to say it was the friendliest maid staff that I have ever encountered in a hotel. First, they spoke English so you could actually ask them something and not receive a puzzled look as so often happens at hotels throughout the country and secondly, they always said hello when you passed by them. Not a big thing, but it's those little things that make guests feel welcome.

The hotel had a nice meeting facility and offered free wireless internet to all guests! A huge perk as I'm used to pay $10-$15 per day at most other hotels. The in hotel restaurant, Trader Dukes, was nice. We only ate there once, but the food and service was good. The bar area was also nice and featured several local beers on tap along with several tv's for watching the games.

Overall, I was very impressed with this hotel and would definitely recommend it.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2009

We stayed on points for 2 nights. Diamond status with Hilton and no upgrade given. The hotel is old, particularly the hallways and stairwells. Carpet needs to be replaced in the halls and rooms. The hotel is not 100% non-smoking and you can tell, even in a non-smoking room. Our room could have been cleaner as it looked like one of those yummy Doubletree cookies left a chocolate stain on the duvet which led us to believe it probably hadn't been washed prior to our arrival. Our room was cramped with only 2 people. No place to store a second suitcase and the room is oddly configured with the bathroom sink basically in the living area. Noisy room as there's a significant gap under the door leading to the hallway. Flat screen HD TV but no HD channels so the picture is of poor quality.

The hotel warrants a 3 star (vs. 2) rating because the staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the location can't be beat for freeway access in downtown Burlington. But I would stay somewhere else if ever returning to the area.

We stayed in Burlington for one night during a recent trip around the New England area. I picked the Doubletree because the price was right and it got good reviews. The customer service is fantastic. A WELCOME experience from our previous hotel. The rooms were clean, front desk staff was very knowledgeable about the area and with making recommendations for dinner and drinks. They were trained well when it comes to making you feel welcome.

Hotel is about a 2 mile straight shot from the heart of downtown where there are many little shops and restaurants. Overall, a terrific night's stay.

We stayed here on our college visit to the area. It is very convenient to UVM and St. Michael's College. There was a hint of the smell of cigarettes as other reviews have mentioned.

Best locations at 10 minutes from Airport and 5 minutes of Midtown Burlignton. They are a good restaurant near the champlain lake on the left name : "Seafich". For the breakfast or lunch see on Mainstreet.
The rooms are quiet and clean. The services are good.
