So this Doubletree is a bit further from downtown, but closer to the convention center. These are both good things. If you want to go down to sixth street, it is an easy less than 2 mile walk with sidewalks the whole way. The hotel itself is perfectly acceptable, decent fitness room and pool, with a decent breakfast. The rooms were adequate, although the showers were a bit on the weak side. Staff was helpful and overall the hotel was clean and neat. After seeing the rooms some co-workers had at other hotels nearby, this place was a bargain.
