I stayed twice within the same week at this Hilton Doubletree property -- what a difference in the day of the week when one stays!
The first time I got a room mid-week on the third floor facing the south side of the hotel. The hotel was full of what looked to me to be business guest. The hotel was generally quiet, except for being able to hear people in the hallway (more on this latter) as another reviewer has already mentioned. The room itself seemed to be recently updated -- for example I noticed that the HVAC is one of those types of units that are mounted in the wall and that this particular unit was controlled by a wall mounted thermostat. Next morning I was surprised to find-out that the breakfast buffet was not included with the charge for the room --- went down Bluemond Road to the Pancake House instead.
The second time I got a room on the weekend on the third floor facing the "courtyard" on the north side of the hotel. The hotel was hosting a wedding reception and the hotel was full of families with either young adults and/or teenagers. These guests were in a festive mood -- so festive that they were running up and down the hallway and talking in a loud voice (too much champagne perhaps?). The reception area is attached to the hotel in such a way that one either has to circle around the hotel in order to get to the north side or enter though an outside side door and then though the fire escape door so as to not intrude on the function. The HVAC in this room was controlled via switches on the unit itself -- the thermostat was on the wall but was not connected to the HVAC -- generally this room appeared to be older than the first room I stayed in.
Something that I found curious was when I asked the front desk how long does it take to drive to MKE airport during the morning rush period the person said that she did not know -- a hotel marketed towards business clients and the front desk person does not know? Tsk-tsk!
