My wife and I completed our second stay at this hotel this past weekend.
While not my favorite lodging in the area (see my earlier review of the Princeton Westin), the DoubleTree offers comfort at a fair price. The rooms are reasonably spacious and pleasantly (though not elegantly) appointed. Consider spending a few extra dollars for an upgrade to the Executive floor. Here you will have access to refreshment room with breakfast items and afternoon snacks, and helpful staff members who go out of their way to make you feel at home. Sadly, we were not able to visit the room on our recent stay due to its limited hours. However, we did receive vouchers for breakfast in the main dining room, which was appetizing and well prepared.
The hotel could do a few things to increase its appeal: (1) provide free wifi service to all rooms, or at least to those who have paid more to be on the Executive floor, (2) expand the hours of the Executive lounge, and (3) on the next upgrade, provide more closet space in the rooms.
Also, I did find a number of soiled spots on the carpets, both in our room and in some of the public areas. Management should increase the frequency of cleaning/replacement.
On the plus side, the front desk staff were welcoming and responsive, as was the wait staff in the restaurant at breakfast.
On the whole, I would say this hotel delivers excellent value for the price, particularly compared to some local competitors.
