My husband and I stayed at the Double Tree Rochester for a family wedding. Little did we know that same weekend there would be a Little League hockey tournament. Check in was fine; the lobby area well appointed. I'm still not sure why the pool was in the open area across from the bar area. With the children screaming; it didn't lend to the ambiance the hotel was trying to convey with the decor.
The room was nice. Air conditioning unit sounded like a freight train. We didn't appreciate the hockey playing in the hallway; but the hotel handled that once they were notified. The restaurant food was good. Tip: Forgo the breakfast buffet. The selection was not worth the price.
The weeding, oddly enough was also in the lobby area, by the pool. It didn't lend itself to the romance that I think most hotels of this caliber would give. A portable room partition did not afford the privacy the celebration warranted. In addition, we were by the pool, so the noise was noticeable. Did I mention that the hotel decided on the day of the wedding not to provide air conditioning in the lobby area!?! We were uncomfortable for the entire ceremony. The location we were in was right under the glass enclosed area of the hotel so the direct sunlight added to our discomfort.
Overall, the hotel was ok for the reason we were there. I don't think I'd choose this particular hotel the next time I'm in the Rochester area. It did not live up to the Double Tree Hotel standards they are noted for. We were told that this particular hotel was the Holiday Inn before Double Tree took ownership- it showed!
Kudos to Chris at the front desk who not only remembered our names, but was courteous and let us know where the happenings were in the city.
