“Ideally located, clean and comfortable”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We met colleagues here for a 2 day working session. One of us booked a suite and we used that.

The staff including the front desk service were friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and reasonably appointed. The bed was comfortable.

Wifi was a little slow and dropped us a few times. Something to consider if you are having a business meeting that requires video internet access.

The hotel is located right off RT 89 and about a mile from downtown Burlington. There are many options for dining.

Older property, like many Doubletrees, but don't let that put you off. It's been redone, hallway ceilings are still low, and hallways are "Vermonty". But the rooms themselves are clean and modernized.

Our check in was lightning fast. I am a Hilton Honors Elite member, so we had an upgrade to a suite waiting for us. No need to ask like other brands that I hold higher status at (Holiday Inn, I'm looking at you!). The staff had the suite ready, breakfast vouchers were ready, and there was even a personal note from the staff in the suite. Made me feel welcome for sure. And we seriously were done with check-in within a minute of walking in the door.

The suite had been updated, current colors were on the walls. Desk, fridge, and microwave were all in good shape. HD channels on the flatscreen, but a list of channels would have been handy if only to tip off that HD channels were available.

We used the pool and hot tub. The pool was cold, either not heated or not heated enough. There were a lot of towels left by guests who had obviously left, but staff had not cleaned up after.

Drawback, as others have noted, was internet speed. I used speedtest.net, and found the download to be 0.4mbps, uploads even slower. Yeah if I were trying to watch video on netflix, it wouldn't have worked. But the upload speeds weren't enough to quickly even upload email for work, let alone download for play.

Overall, I'd stay again, mostly based on my guest experience. But if I need to work, I'll be seeking out a starbucks or mcdonalds for faster internet.

Room Tip: Suites are at back of hotel, loooooooooooooooooooooong walk from the lobby.

We value our Hilton Honor members and strive to provide our guests with exceptional service from the moment they walk in the door.

We are gearing up for a complete upgrade to our wireless internet access, which will bring our speeds from 1 mbps to 20 mgps, which will be a great improvement! In the meantime, if you do stay with us again and choose to or are upgraded to a suite, please know that there is hard-wired access in our suites, which may make doing work a bit easier for you.

If you want full access to the internet, I don't recommend this facility. Their WiFi is not much better than dial-up internet access, and the ethernet access still won't allow you to view online videos. Recommend you look elsewhere to stay if internet access is important to your stay.

Thank you very much for your review of your recent stay at our hotel. We apologize for any inconvenience that you may have experienced with our wireless internet. We are aware that guests expect and rely on this amenity when they are staying away from home, which is why we are excited to prepare for a wireless internet upgrade, which should be taking place next month!

In addition to our internet upgrade, we are also preparing for the renovation and addition of a gift shop/grab-and-go area to be added next to the front desk, which will provide additional convenience to our guests.

Thank you for your review of your recent stay at our hotel. I hope that you enjoyed your time in Burlington! I appreciate your feedback regarding the size of our bathrooms. Although we cannot change the size or layout of our bathrooms, we did recently undergo bathroom renovations and are currently working on some new upgrades around the hotel like carpeting, wallpaper, and the addition of a "grab and go" gift shop next to our front desk. We apologize for your experience in Trader Duke's Restaurant & Lounge as you were trying to enjoy your breakfast, but I am glad that your second server was able to satisfy your needs. We hope that you will have the chance to visit our beautiful little city again and appreciate you taking the time to review our hotel!

We were in Burlington on a holiday weekend in the fall so unsurprisingly lots of places were solidly booked even a few months ahead - so we ended up booking a chain hotel.

My girlfriend was overjoyed to get the usual cookie on arrival and we went to the room. Spacious, clean and standard it was a good room with a good bathroom. Nothing amazing here but just a solid room. The service from the desk was very good - very friendly staff and anything i needed (bottle opener for example) I was able to get and I very much liked the apples that were on the front desk to help yourself.

I cannot comment on the facilities beyond this as we didn't use them. In terms of location the hotel is on a bit of a busy road with nothing much around it but chain food outlets - it is good for driving though since it was handy or most things in the area, including free-ways.

Nothing amazing or unusual perhaps, but just a solid chain hotel with friendly and helpful staff.

Thank you for your recent review of your stay back in October - we appreciate you taking the time to provide us with some feedback! We are so happy to hear that your girlfriend enjoyed our signature DoubleTree chocolate chip and walnut cookie - this is one staple that DoubleTree guests have come to love! Our friend desk staff always aims to go above and beyond when it comes to guest service, so we are so glad to hear that this was demonstrated for you during your stay. Our location just off Williston Road is ideal for business and leisure travelers alike and I'm happy that you appreciated the convenience of our location in proximity to Interstate-89. We hope that you will visit us again if you make it back to our wonderful city - thank you again for your positive feedback!

Booked via PL for 60$. Coming from a more rustic place to this was nice, mind you, I didn't have the great breakfast of the Old Stagecoach, but was nice to relax and watch TV and surf the web. The check in was friendly, received my DT cookie, and took possession of my room. Fairly big room with a very comfortable king bed, LCD TV, free wifi, but the bathroom configuration was old school Holiday Inn, with the sink outside the smallish bathroom....mind you the sink was 4 star grade, as was the furniture in the room. The gym was well appointed with 3 of each ellipticals, treadmills, and bikes, some weights. The pool is quite decent for laps, and there is a nice Jacuzzi for relaxing. There is a restaurant on premise I did not use. The complex is quite big, but there is sufficient parking on premise. Downside is the long walk to downtown...I wish the South Burlington hotels would offer shuttle service, for this 1 mile distance. Other cities do it. Still, a good deal on PL.

Room Tip: book via priceline, bid 3 stars in Burlington.

Thank you for your review on your recent stay at our hotel. We hope that you enjoyed your trip to our beautiful city! We are so glad that you recognize all of the wonderful amenities that our hotel offers: Comfortable and spacious guestrooms, 32" LCD flatscreen TVs, complimentary wi-fi access, a well appointed fitness center and indoor heated pool, ample complimentary parking, and of course, the famous DoubleTree cookie! We have been operating successfully as a hotel since the 1690's and do recognize that the set-up of having the bathroom and vanity separate are not all guests' preferences. Althought this is something that we cannot change, we did recently undergo bathroom renovations and are currently working on other upgrades like carpeting and wallpaper and the addition of a new "grab and go" gift shop which will be located next to the front desk. I hope that you will consider the DoubleTree the next time you are visiting Burlington - thank you again for your wonderful feedback!

I have stayed at several hotels in the area and the Doubletree is by far the best one in my opinion. The front desk employees were very welcoming and professional. I stayed in a king suite which was pleasant, clean, and comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good. All in all, it was an excellent value and I would definitely return.
