Front desk staff members deserve much praise. They are friendly and very well-trained. When confronted with problems, they resolve issues quickly and try to accommodate the guest the best they can with an incredible attitude. They are a pleasure to talk to and are clearly trying to make this Doubletree hotel a better place. That's a tough job, considering the aging property, which has some cleanliness and maintenance issues. We noticed a number of problems in the rooms: shredded towel, stains on the comforter and mattress pad, and dust throughout. The couch smelled old and dusty. The bathroom was clean overall, however. The elevators were old, and the hallways could use some new wallpaper. The restaurant had some problems, as well. We ate breakfast there. The food was adequate, and the waiter was friendly and attentive. However, the coffee mugs had stains on them, and one of our water glasses had a gel all over the inside of the glass at the water level. It didn't smell like detergent, so I'm not sure what it was. We drank the water (hopefully it won't cause illness). Cleanliness was a serious concern in the restaurant.
Otherwise, the hotel looked tired overall and could use a remodeling but was adequate. Room was large. AC/Heat worked well. TV was good, although the channel selection seemed limited. Bed was comfortable. Shower had good water pressure. Vanity was fine.
There is a 24/hour pool and supposedly a good fitness room, although we didn't take a look at those facilities based on the cleanliness issues we encountered elsewhere in the hotel.
If this hotel made some improvements, particularly with their housekeeping staff, we would consider staying here again.
