“Beware of the mattresses!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

The setting and appearance of the hotel and lobby led me to expect that the mattresses would be good quality. Everything was up-to-date and clean, service friendly, too. But the mattresses were mushy without providing support, like kids had jumped on them far too often. Other family members were renting other rooms, and one sister-in-law claimed she had never slept in a worst bed. Yet another ended up resorting to sleeping on the floor because the mattress was so bad. Since we were there for 4 nights, I told the front desk, and they let me check out another room - but the mattresses there were just as worn out. I say cookies upon check-in are nice and so are all the other amenities - but a good night's sleep depends on decent mattresses. These need to be replaced!

That's the way of the Double Tree! I spent three days at the Charlotteville VA Double Tree. It is a great place for business and/or leisure. Comfortable, curteous and customer focused. I will be staying there again! You bet your cookies I will!

I stayed at the Charlottesville Doubletree on Oct. 1 and 2 for a conference held at the hotel. The room was very clean, beds were comfortable, and the pillows were great. The air conditioner was a little too loud but did not interrupt my sleep.

I was distracted while getting ready to leave and left my iPad on the dresser. I noticed my mistake that evening when I got home and immediately called the hotel. The polite young man took pity on me and went to check for it. It was there! Relief! The housekeeping manager got in touch with me and shipped my iPad back. I'm typing this review on it now.

It is so nice to deal with such an honest and friendly staff. Thank you Doubletree Charlottesville.

Seven Seas Lagoon,
I am pleased that you were able to join us for your conference. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about the hotel. I am glad that you enjoyed your room with all of its lush features. Technology is such an important part of our lives, I don't know that I would do if my laptop or phone went missing. I am overjoyed; but unsurprised, to hear that our awesome team was able to reunite you with your iPad. All of the staff takes great pride in knowing that their hard work and dedication is making a difference to our guests. I certainly hope that you have a chance to stay with us again soon.
Enjoy today!

The hotel is nice, and the lobby is nicer than most Doubletree's I have stayed at. The room is decent sized and was quiet. The staff is friendly.

We had booked here far in advance as we had a wedding to attend. I called to alter our reservation and it was a royal hassle. First I was told, the computer wasn't working. Then I was told I needed permission from the hotel manager to shorten my reservation and he wasn't there on weekends. I was told it was a "special" weekend and they had been booked for months. Well ok, I wanted to shorten my stay - seems to me that if it was so "special", they'd have no problem filling the nights I cancelled. Mind you, this was a month in advance. I called the 800# and was told the same thing. I tried on-line with no luck.

I called on Monday and things went better. They changed my reservation with no problems. But what a hassle. I've never had that experience before.

We stayed here for a few nights. During the week, everything was perfect. On the weekend, no so much. The hotel had a wedding and the hotel was understaffed. Gym had no water, no towels. The restaurant was understaffed. At 3:30 pm, our room was still not clean.

Note that this hotel was sold out months in advance, yet the hotel did nothing to increase the staff. Tells me upper management or the hotel franchisee doesn't care about quality.

This hotel is a very good choice when staying north of Charlottesville. Close to the airport, super service, great facilities. You should really consider it. The restaurant and bar are superb. The pool and gym really nice. Check it ou!

If you like everything to be adequate but do not care to feel pampered, you probably will not mind staying here. No "extras" provided and do not believe them when they say a warm cookie will be waiting for you when you arrive.

My wife and I couldn't have asked for anything better. We had a nice romantic night at the Doubletree before visiting Monticello the next day and then heading on to Richmond. Of course, we enjoyed the chocolate cookie. The wine hour and the in-room Jacuzzi made the upgrades well worth the money.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a concierge level room or one with a Jacuzzi if it's available. It's well worth...
