Much to my delight, my one night last minute business trip to Jefferson City was highlighted by my stay at the Doubletree Hotel. The hotel is perfectly located. The State Capitol building is within walking distance as other city buildings and fountains.
Jefferson City is a small rural city rich in Americana. It was inspiring to see so many American flags soaring over many of the buildings. Certainly not a tourist destination, it is a quiet and friendly city. No shopping nearby other than small local shops and cafes which may be worth a look but I didnt experience any of that.
The hotel is clean and comfortable. I was given a spacious king suite on the 6th floor. The bed was AMAZINGLY comfortable, as is the case with most Hilton properties. The bedding was soft and the pillows WONDERFUL. The bathroom was standard fare in size, was exceptionally clean. One of my favorite things in the room was the chaise chair. I was able to sit in the chair and watch the sun set while compiling my reports.
Front desk staff were very helpful. Quick check in and multiple people offering to assist with unloading my rental car. Parking was easy and close. By the time I parked my vehicle- staff had my belongings in my room.
I ordered quesidillas for dinner room room service. I wasnt expecting much of Mexican food considering the area of the country. To my surprise the food was GREAT and incredibly affordable (under $15.00 including tip and service charge). They even brought me a "free refill" of my soda. Hotels have NO IDEA how valuable a free second soda is with a meal when working long nights in your room. HUGE BENEFIT. Of course my piping hot cookie Doubletree gives to all guests was delightful.
There is a restaurant on the top floor of the hotel. I did not eat there but the room service is a good indicator. Room service ends a bit early- 11PM.
The rate was very affordable. I called the hotel and booked directly with friendly staff. I usually stay at the Hampton Inn (another Hilton property) about 9 miles away since the rate is about $20 cheaper per night. Definitely worth the extra $20 for this stay.
THE DOWNSIDE- Really only 2 issues I would change. The first is minor0 the flat screen TV is too small for the room. Not a big deal, its acceptable but just small. The only true negative is the internet connection..........very slowwwwwwwwwwww. I had to use my air card some of the time. That costs me money if I exceed my usage. I still think its an excellent place to stay.
