Stay was OK. Staff very pleasant and accommodating. Hotel is a drive to any of the attractions in the area but not a long one. It's time to update the television sets.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2008

I stayed at the DoubleTree in Charlottesville on July 4, 2008 and July 5, 2008. When I arrived at the hotel I was welcomed with the traditional DoubleTree chocolate chip cookies.

Although I didn't use the swimming pool, I noticed that the swimming pool is now open again. The hotel doesn't appear to be currently under construction or renovation.

The room itself was nice and spacious. The double bed in the hotel seemed a bit more narrow than the traditional double bed.

There was one thing that I found unique about the hotel. The lobby and front door where you walk in is actually the third floor of the hotel.

The hotel is located a couple of miles from downtown Charlottesville. If you drive past the hotel away from Charlottesville you enter a rural part of Virginia. The local attractions such as Monticello are probably a 15-20 minute drive away, without traffic. This ended up not being much of an issue since holiday traffic wasn't as bad as I anticipated.

  • Liked — Clean and comfortable
  • Disliked — Far away from downtown Charlottesville

We have stayed at the Doubletree several times before and found this visit the best. We were giving the VIP treatment the entire time we were there. The Executive Floor had breakfast and appetizers in the afternoon. Everyone was very helpful.
The only downside was the air conditioning in the lobby was not that great. Too warm! We will return again.

The Doubletree has recently renovated its dining rooms - and the room with the breakfast/brunch buffet is lovely. Very airy, roomy, with comfortable chairs. Best of all, the food is terrific. The fresh, made-to-order omelets are unbelievably good. This is our family's favorite place for Sunday Brunch.

Where to start.... well my room was missing all the towels when I checked in

Then the building work started coating my room in dust from the ventilation. The next day I had some work done in my room without asking me - and the room was left filthy.

I complained, and it didn't get cleaned up until I complained again the next day.

More towels missing the next day & some staff member had been making calls from my room while I was out....

very poor given that it was alright on my previous visit

After a disastrous stay at the English Inn, we fled to the Charlottesville Doubletree for a one-night stay. It was the perfect antidote to our previous experience: friendly, helpful management and staff who really wanted to make our stay pleasant. The warm cookies at check-in were a delicious treat after being outside most of a cool, drizzly day, and our room was very comfortable. Although I don't usually like to eat at hotel restaurants, we were tired and had eaten a large, late lunch, so we checked out their restaurant in the evening. It was a very pleasant facility and the appetizers that we shared in lieu of dinner were quite good, especially the crabcakes. The next morning we barely made it downstairs before their breakfast cut-off time, but they happily served us--and a few people who came in after us--without a word, and even left the buffet open until they were sure everyone was done. I highly recommend the Doubletree and would definitely stay there again.

  • Liked — Friendly, helpful service
  • Disliked — A little bit far from the center of Charlottesville.
