For us, staying here is like going to see family. We have gone there for years and the reasons we return are numerous, but one reason stands out, the staff. Their smiling faces, willingness to accommodate our every needs and the way we are treated is why we are repeat offenders! Because we stay on the executive level and have had access to the lounge all of these years, it has resulted in friendships that will truly last a lifetime. In fact, because of the friends we have met at the private lounge over the years, we return time and time again to meet up with just those friends who have become like family to us and who we keep in touch with throughout the years.

But, there is a change in the winds my friends. The new owners have decided to close the lounge on weekends. We have such limited time with these friends we have made that taking away that privacy at the lounge 2 nights of our vacation kind of stinkst. It is not just the friends, it is Anne and now Vickie who is new up there, there is just not enough words to express how wonderful they are and how lucky the DoubleTree is that they work up there. They are real in their love of what they do and the enjoyment they share in visiting with all of the returning guests.

I know this may seem petty, and we could go somewhere else to visit with our friends, but it is the quietness, privacy and no children in an environment not seen at most hotels that is truly the treasure of the executive lounge at DoubleTree Oceanfront in Cocoa Beach. Also, there is nothing like being able to grab a cup of coffee steps from your room and return for more fun with the staff over breakfast. It is all of those little things that make a great stay for hard working people who look forward to vacation at the hotel..

We have a trip planned to celebrate and meet up with our many friends, so it was a little disheartening to learn how the hotel is starting to change. Somehow being handed vouchers for the main restaurant is just not going to be the same. If management is trying to save a few bucks, the conveniences guests look for is not the way to save money.

Please note that since you have to pick a date of travel on trip adviser and we have not returned yet but will shortly, we put Feb, 2013.

Dear VermontSusie,

Thank you for such a detailed review of our hotel and thank you for the 5 stars! I couldn't ask for a better first line...that it feels like family here. I'm sorry for the change in our weekend hours for the executive lounge. Our "regulars" like you have told me they having a hard time with this change, especially because Anne & Vicki have made the club such a home away from home for our guests. I'm very lucky to have them running the club. Some of our guests have actually told me they prefer going down to the restaurant on the weekends because the hours go later, so I've definitely heard pros and a cons to it. I will continue to monitor the feedback on it and share with our ownership. Fortunately, the rest of the changes our new ownership is planning are really great and the hotel will be getting further upgrades to many of the areas. I certainly hope you will continue to stay with us!

10 minute drive to Port from hotel. Hotel was clean, safe, and comfortable. We arrived late and left early for the port so we couldn't take advantage of many offerings. One note, if you plan on visiting Ron Jon's surf shop, the hotel offers a 15 percent discount on purchases.

Great staff and great location. Very comfortable beds.The restaurant manager was a real jerk to his staff when we had a meal there but it didn't spoil our stay. The food was very good son that did make up for it.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Doubletree. Very helpful and accomidating. The staff were very cordial and the food was wonderful and not to expensive. The view is breath taking from our room looking out over the ocean. They kept my auto while we were on the cruise in there parking lot no charge.. We will return there for sure.

I am Hilton Honors member and made the choice to stay here versus the Hilton property because all the rooms have balconies. The Hilton is just four or five buildings down the beach, so the locations are nearly identicial. It was a wise choice, because sitting on the balcony in the afternoon with my computer in my lap was priceless.

There is no 'free' coffee in the lobby, but they do have a small pod maker in the rooms (Wolfgang Puck).

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of the water/beach (even without the pricey upgrades). The higher floors room...

The staff were very cordial, the rooms were nice and it was in a good location in the town. If you are planning on visiting this area, I would recommend staying here, but plan on eating out for breakfast (the food was too expensive for just being okay).
