We stayed here over Labor Day weekend with our one-year-old son for a wedding. We have traveled quite a bit with our son since his birth, and have stayed in 8 different hotels - every time, I put a special request on our reservation asking for a crib to be placed in our room. And every time, I end up calling the front desk to have one brought up. Not a big deal, and it's never bothered me. But I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the door to our room after check in at the Doubletree, and a pack n play had already been set up! It's the first time any hotel has paid attention to our requests! The little things like this left a great impression on us.
Other positives of our stay - the staff was very courteous, room was spotless and quiet (we were in a room on the first floor and I was a little worried about the noise factor, but we had no issues), and the room service was excellent. They were also very accommodating when it came to early check-in; the wedding we were attending was on a Friday night at 5pm, normal check-in is 4pm. We contacted the hotel several days in advance and they were able to have our room ready by 1pm so we could get clean up and get dressed after a long drive.
My only complaint - and a minimal one at that - is the temperature of the indoor pool. It was 96 degrees outside that day and we were hoping to cool off, but it was VERY warm. Not just the water, but the air inside the pool area was slightly steamy. Understandable to have a heated pool in Akron, Ohio, but it would have been nice to have it turned down a little for the summer. We still enjoyed it!
