We stayed here a year ago and loved it -- which is why we returned this year. Mistake.
There seems to be no one overseeing the housecleaning staff, at least if our room was anything to judge by. When we arrived, I saw various bits of dirt on the carpet, and the desk chair was filthy. (Something on it, in bits, that I tried to clean off but couldn't. Eventually, I asked for a replacement chair, which was provided.)
When we returned after our day out -- and after leaving behind a tip, incidentally -- the carpet was still dirty (same pieces in the same spots), our ice bucket hadn't been emptied, our dirty glasses were still there (without replacement clean ones), and the hairdryer bag, which I'd left out with the dirty towels because it had a smear of dirt on it along with two gobs of someone else's toothpaste -- was returned to the shelf. Dirty. And the hairdryer wasn't even put back inside. Oh, and did I mention the bathtub drain? Apart from the fact that it had no strainer, it was pretty bad -- great if you like taking showers while standing ankle-high in backed-up drain water.
Charlottesville DoubleTree? Big, big disappointment this time around.
