We are in town for a medical school interview, so we chose the downtown location to be close to VCU's medical campus. It is close to everything we need, and easy to get around from here.
Friendly and free shuttle service for anywhere withing 3 miles has served us well.
Front desk staff, valet, shuttle drivers, restaurant personnel -- all have been really friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is attractive and well maintained. We arrived a little bit early on January 1 -- after a huge New Year's Eve party the night before - but the staff was still helpful and friendly and managed to get us into our room before 3:00 pm.
We are on our second night here. Comfy beds, clean rooms, easy in and out over and over again. Just nothing at all negative to report. It is not an "ooh ahh" property, but everything is nice and the staff have been terrific.
For a Doubletree, I'd say the room is a bit small, as is the bathroom -- but I would stay again because the people have been so friendly and helpful.
