We booked at the last minute, and chose the Doubletree because they allow pets with a $25 fee, compared to the Omni ($50) or Jefferson Hotel ($40.) I read the reviews on here afterward, and cannot believe I stayed at the same hotel.
Our room on the 15th floor was large, with a medium-sized fridge and microwave, and the bed was so comfortable. Everything was very clean and there was free Internet as well.
We asked the front desk to suggest an inexpensive hamburger place and they were very helpful. We loved the later check-out (noon) and the quiet room.
The only down note was the Sunday breakfast and the $14 parking fee, which seemed quite high. The buffet mentioned in the hotel's book was non-existent and the only place you could order was the bar area. Our simple eggs were very greasy and it was possibly the worst coffee I've ever had - l swear the in-room coffee was better.
But on the whole, we'd happily stay here again - we'd just go out for breakfast.
