I was a little dubious when I saw the location, and the front desk staff did NOT help with my first impression, but everyone after check-in truly went above and beyond to make us feel taken care of and welcome. From the sous-chef coming out to our table in the restaurant to Rachel the room service lady going over ingredients knowledgeably and tirelessly (my son has a peanut allergy) over the phone, consulting the bartender on the merits of various draft beers for my husband, then decorating the plate of my son's dessert "Spiderman"-style and delivering our (very heavy!) tray promptly and cheerfully, the staff of this hotel is amazing! We never passed them in the hall without a friendly greeting, and it went a long way to easing the tension of traveling with three children (and a dog! Love that the Doubletree is pet-friendly!). I would absolutely stay there again, although there really needs to be better staffing/training of Front Desk Agents.
