If you saw my review for The Inn At Afton in Waynesboro you will know my little adventure there that caused us to leave ASAP and we proceeded to the Charlottesville Doubletree. Check In was fast and easy especially considering we had no reservation and were just hoping they had a room available, Front desk staff extremely friendly!!! We managed to get a room on the Club Level floor for the 4 nights we were staying for $129 a night, Club level basically just free breakfast on that floor every morning and guaranteed top floor room not a big deal but I hate staying on lower floors so for me this was perfect. Got to the room and it was very nice and relaxing only problem at all was the a/c unit, it wasnt too quiet and it ran most of the night, and cutting it off quickly made the room stuffy again, but my girlfriend and I are sound sleepers so it wasnt an issue for very long. The first night ate in the restaurant and the food was great and surprisingly in my opinion anyway very inexpensive for a hotel restaurant with great food, had several drinks from the bar, also inexpensive, martinis were like $5.50 I believe? cant beat that!!! In the morning we had our club level breakfast included with room and it was great, then we headed out to do some sightseeing and shopping, later on coming back into C-Ville stopped at Red Lobster for dinner, should've known better honestly there awful here in Virginia Beach, and just as bad there too, in fact the next 3 nights we just ate in the hotel restaurant because it was just that good!!! upon checking out the friendly woman asked me how was my stay and how was the breakfast, I told her breakfast was great but we missed it on our last morning because we overslept, well to my surprise she gets the Manager and the Manager says even though you overslept we think you should still be entitled to that free breakfast, she took us into the restaurant that was closed until lunch, seated us and manged to find a waitress and said we could order anything wed like and its on them. That was simply amazing and I never would expect that from anyone being it was my fault we missed breakfast, management and staff here just went above and beyond their duty and that just shows how great this hotel is!!! The Inn At Afton sickened us, but this hotel turned what we thought would be a nightmare into heaven!!! I think I kind of realize now its best to just stick with what you know and stay at chain hotels, versus independents, always had good luck with Hilton/Doubletree brand and this one was exceptional!!!
