My family and I stayed two nights at the Doubletree Club checking in on Friday night. I had a test to take at the University of Arkansas the next day, so we wanted a place that was near the university but not right next to I 540. We also wanted a hotel that had an indoor pool and a complimentary hot breakfast. The Doubletree met our needs. We booked the bed and breakfast package with two queen beds on the hotel's website. I had requested a room away from the other guests, so I could get a good night sleep for my test in the morning. At a previous hotel, our room was adjoined to another room, and we could hear the guests through the walls. They weren't being loud, but you could hear everything they were saying.
Upon checking in, the front desk person offered us free hot chocolate chip cookies, which were fantastic. When we got to our room, we had some trouble getting the door keys to work. Once we got in, the room was very nice. However, our room was adjoined to another room, and we could hear the other guests talking. They weren't loud, but I didn't want to be disturb. I went downstairs to the front desk and explained the situation and also about the keys. The front desk person moved us to another room and had a hotel employee accompany us to our new room to make sure that the keys would work properly. The hotel employee offered to help us move our things. After a couple of tries with the key, we were able to get in. Although the room had a king size bed instead of two queens, it was quiet.
We had the hot breakfast the next morning. We were given tickets for the breakfast bar when we checked in. If you didn't have a ticket, you were charged $7.50. The breakfast bar included eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, yogurt, cereal, pastries, toast, instant oatmeal, fresh fruit, two different kinds of juice, coffee, and milk. Pancakes are served only during the weekdays. The breakfast was good. If you decide to eat elsewhere, there is a Sonic on one side of the hotel. Next to the Sonic is a Waffle House. On the other side of the hotel is a Wendy's, and across the street from Wendy's is a McDonald's.
The hotel was near I 540 making it quick and easy to get to the university (about 15 - 20 minutes). That night after dinner, we went swimming. The pool was great. There was also a hot tub (spa) and a sauna. My 1 year old really enjoyed being in the pool and hot tub. The only thing about the hot tub was it seemed someone had dumped detergent in it because there were lots of suds, and you couldn't see the steps to get in and out of it.
Overall, the stay was very good.
