This DoubleTree is an updated old 2-storey Radisson hotel, across the street (route 28) from the airport. Not bad, but they seem to have stopped short of a complete remodel. The outside of the hotel tries to look like a "Cape Cod" style building, but doesn't quite make it. The lobby is nicely redone, but the halls, stairways and rooms haven't been treated to much more than a fresh coat of paint (and some of the trim around the stairway has yet to be finished or painted). And, another anomaly was that our end of the 2nd floor hallway was 8 steps up from the main floor (with no elevator to that level) ... not too bad if you don't have a lot of luggage, but the stairs are very shallow, so watch your step.
Our room was large enough, with a good size bathroom (including a Jacuzzi, that we didn't need). The bed was very comfortable ... I didn't want to get up in the morning! The TV was a modern flat-panel set, but it returned to the "home" page every time you turn it on (I'd prefer that it goes back to the last station I was watching ... since no one is familiar with the channel lineup in a hotel room). And, the HVAC unit was a typical (bad) hotel unit ... either too hot or too cold, with nothing in between (and it seemed that the unit turned itself off during the night, probably because their was no movement in the room).
The breakfast room, Ivy, was nice enough, but the buffet was just ordinary. We had breakfasts coupons as premium HHonors members, which includes the cold buffet, but (as they remind you each morning) there is an up-charge to take the hot items ... don't bother paying the extra amount for hot food that's been on warmers for a while.
All in all, not a bad place ... especially if you are an HHonors member, or prefer to stay in a large, upscale chain hotel. But the location (though not far from downtown Hyannis) is not great ... on a busy/noisy road, across from the airport (the noise from the road was actually louder than the small planes landing).
