The staff is very friendly and helpful, great breakfast, nicely remodeled and clean. Located off access road off highway is the only slight downfall, but plenty of parking. We had two rooms as our Family was staying with kids in college.

We stayed here when taking our kids to move in at the University of Texas. It is in a convenient location, clean, and the staff are always friendly. Outside self park is easy. Located near a Denny's but rooms are quiet. We recently stayed in a newly remodeled room and it was great.

Very nice hotel. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. It was under construction but it did not interfer at all with my stay. The new rooms are beautiful. The coffee in the morning was a great treat.

I had the opportunity to attend an Upledger Workshop for 4 days at this location, August 11-14 2016. The staff was awesome, quick to clean bathrooms and very helpful. The room was able to hold 50 persons with massage tables. Great location for food, lodging and sights. Thanks Double Tree for your accommodations. The restaurant staff was also very helpful... More

Hotel is in a good location, albeit a little inconvenient to get to. As always, great cookies upon check-in. Elevator was being repaired during our stay, so only one was functional. Worst placement of an AC unit that I've ever had. It's loud and literally blows right into the face of anyone sleeping on the bed side next to the... More

Beds were wonderful, very clean overall, friendly staff, breakfast is so so. Nice that they have coffee in the lobby. Rooms are quiet and comfortable. Location closer to convention center would have been better but really enjoyed the staff and clean rooms

Location was great, just around the corner from the capitol building. Staff was attentive, friendly and helpful. Check-in/check-out was great. Warm chocolate chip cookie was a great touch. The rooms were clean, spacious, quiet and comfortable. Coffee in the lobby.

Only complaint is the mandatory $15 parking fee to park under the sun. Everything else was great. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. There's a Denny's right next to the hotel, which is nice if you're out late and get hungry. It's also about a mile from 6th street.

This hotel delivers what you would expect from a DoubleTree. Pleasant staff, clean rooms (some are updated, some are in the process of being updated), and warm chocolate chip/walnut cookies whenever you ask nicely. The hotel has an outdoor pool, but nothing too fancy. It also has a restaurant / bar (even with happy hour specials) and Denny's shares a... More

We chose to save a few dollars and stay in the University area of Austin rather than Downtown and this place fit well with those plans. The price was very good and the service and room were both very good too. When we were researching the location seemed further from Downtown than it actually is and if you have a... More
