I stayed at the Doubletree Tulsa in Mid-April 2012.
It is a very reasonably priced, centrally located business hotel in Tulsa. Overall I was happy, my room was clean, recently updated, the front desk staff was very friendly and nice, and the lobby was open, bright, and inviting. I would stay here again without concern, just for the clean room and the great rate.
There are 17 or so floors in this hotel, many of them have been updated recently. Contemporary carpet designs in the elevator lobby's, pleasant muted tones in the hallways, good lighting. Feels very current and comfortable
Views: Great view of downtown Tulsa--which may not sound that great, but I could see the First United Methodist Church, which is huge and gothically beautiful, and it was a pleasant surprise to have a nice view.
Rooms have duvets, and the famous comfortable Hilton bed, nice granite counters, good a/c, very comfortable.
Bar is big, lots of seating, and good selection of spirits and wine. Fast service, and reasonable prices.
Workout room had plenty of space and Precor machines.
The bathroom is updated, but it's still an older layout, so the shower/tub/commode area is extremely tight. They did leave the old "sunlamp" fixture in, complete with it's retro timer knob, and I couldn't decide if it was retro kitschy or old and tacky, but I'll go with retro kitschy.
I'm going to give overall lowlights, and then some that were unique to my experience (overall)
Garage: The garage is adjacent to the Convention Center, and is apparently used by both the hotel and the Convention Center, I had to go to the 5th floor of the garage before there was room. The elevators in the garage are gross and dingy. Note to the DoubleTree--This is your first opportunity to make an impression, and it's not a good one
There is apparently only a buffet, no option to order from a menu. That may not be the case, but that was my case, as no one checked on me after I was seated to see if I wanted a menu. I had to finally wave over a busboy to get coffee. Very frustrating experience. The food on the buffet was decent, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, gravy, pancakes, yogurt, limited fresh fruit, toast, bagels, and apparently they offer muffins at some point, but by 8am, they were all gone, and they didn't replenish.
Frankly the reason this hotel is getting 3 stars vs. 4 is that my breakfast experience frustrated me
Lastly, my checkin didn't go well. They gave me the wrong key--technically the right key, they gave me the wrong room number, but I had to go back down to the front desk to sort it out. Not ideal, but this happens occasionally at all hotels, so not a big deal.
