The hotel gets high marks for a nice feel and look to the public areas and the guestrooms. The staff was also very professional and courteous, starting with the general manager Matthew.
I was staying at the Doubletree because the hotel I normally stay at during my family trips was booked and I had some concerns after reading reviews about this property. I called Matthew and he was very accommodating. He checked on my reservation and made sure everything was as requested.
The hotel is very close to several dining and shopping options and is a huge convenience.
This property also has a pristine pool area, with a pool that ranges from about 3 feet deep all the way to 9 feet. You just don't see that much anymore and I was very impressed. The staff keeps the pool and the area around it neat and tidy and there are always plenty of tools. This it one of the better hotel pools I've experienced in a long time and was a very pleasant surprise to the trip.
The biggest issue with this property is the noise. I had read the reviews about the proximity to the train tracks, but I dismissed it. I was proven wrong ... the first night there, the train came through at least a dozen times during the night with its blaring horn. It was almost obnoxiously loud.
Also, I'm not sure what the cause is, but you can hear quite a bit of noise from the halls and other rooms. This included slamming doors, running and loud talking in the hallways, the ice/vending machines and especially the elevator.
Some of this was out of the hands of Matthew and his staff as there were several youth lacrosse teams staying at the hotel. Unfortunately young boys behave like young boys do sometimes and there seemed to be little parental supervision as groups of youth announced themselves by running, yelling and acting out of control (hopefully they grow out of that type of behavior).
All in all, this was a good trip and the hotel is a nice place to stay. However the warnings on the trains and noise are highly accurate and one has to decide for themselves whether that is something that would bother them. I would be willing to give it another try and see if staying in a different part of the hotel would help with the noise issue.
Plus, who can resist the warm chocolate chip cookies!
