I did get this hotel at a deeply discounted rate but was surprised that it had the Doubletree name. My particular room had an outside entrance and was a 2 story building. They have a high rise building as well on the property that seemed more luxurious. My room felt more like a 2 star hotel room with a nice bed and TV. I did kill a large 2" roach in the room near my last day and the carpet looked like it needed to be cleaned. They did charge for parkign - $8 a day plus tax for self parking.
The thing that ticked me off the most was the exhorbitant fees they charge for some things. They charge $10 per package to receve a package for you at the front desk. Internet service in the room is also $10-$15 a day, but I expected that from Doubletree. They also had some of the most aggressive bellmen I have ever seen. Even after telling them "I got it" several times, they take your bags or boxes anyway, ignoring what you say in order to milk the tips. I found this very irritating.
Would I go back? No, I would look elsewhere. If I am going to be in a 2-story external entry hotel room, there are many choices without the hassles of paid parking, exhorbitant fees and over-aggressive bellmen.
