“Overpriced.”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

The hotel was wayyy too overpriced. The value was decent but should not have to pay that much for an average hotel. The internet was complicated to get into as well. You could easily find another hotel with a better price and better value.

This hotel is conveniently located near restaurants, theaters and other entertainment. Travel, both by personal car and by taxi, was easy. The quality you get for the price is good. Friendly, helpful staff. Free (fast) internet access.

Went to visit family and won this room on price line. It was a biker rally and every room was booked by then, but it wasn't a big deal because nobody comes to Austin to stay in the hotel now do they?

The staff is very courteous and accommodating despite maximum capacity, and the free cookies were the highlight of my stay!! The room was pretty drab, semi updated, and kind of clean. I say kind of because there were beer cans under the bed when we checked in, and a mildly musty odor that later subsided when we kicked the ac on max for a while.

All in all,a pretty good place to rest your head, but don't pay the full price unless you dive and swim in coins when you go home

very comfortable room with good service, wireless internet had plenty of bandwidth. definitely a good place to stay. trip advisor is really stupid because it requires 200 characters in this field; I like double tree but I don't like trip advisor. I hope this is enough to make this stupid survey valid...

Wanted to stay downtown, but unwilling to pay a small fortune. This hotel satisfied the location and the budget. While not the nicest DoubleTree we've stayed in, it was clean and friendly. Little disappointed that they did not offer a shuttle service like many of the other hotels I've stayed at in Austin. We wanted to take a shuttle downtown and catch a taxi back. No deal on the shuttle. Cemetery location did not bother us. Highway noise was an issue, but the air conditioner drowned out the noise. If you don't mind the noise of a loud air conditioner (white noise), you shouldn't have a problem. They offer a breakfast buffet...$13.99. Wasn't impressed with the selection. Denny's is a 30 second walk away. My son and had a great breakfast at Denny's, while the queen slept a little longer. I'd give this hotel 3 1/2 stars. Slightly above average, and I would stay there again. One last bit...nice little bar with a friendly bartender. After a long drive, I surprised the wife with a margarita that she said was great, and picked a cold beer from a good 25 brand selection.

I was in Austin for the UIL Competition and this was the hotel chosen by the Burkburneet ISD. The location was the best with regards to BASS Concert Hall. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable.

I was traveling on business and when I tried to check in they did not have any record of my name. It seems I made the reservation at the other Doubletree on I-35 by mistake. They quickly accommodated me with a room and helped to cancel the mistaken reservation without any penalty.
The room was nice and clean. The pool area was pleasant, although noisy because of it being right next to the highway.
There is also a Denny's right next door.
