Pros: Nice lobby; fairly quiet; nicely appointed rooms; convenient (but hard-to-get-to) location
Cons: Very hard to get to the hotel entrance due to it being on a one-way street and construction around the hotel; $30 mandatory parking fee (no self-parking so, if you have a vehicle, the valet parking is mandatory. This makes the parking fee inescapable if driving a vehicle.); thread-bare towels in the bathroom...this is not expected at a Hilton property, especially at this level.
The hotel was originally built in 1962 and was just converted to Doubletree from Marriott earlier in the year. The furnishings look new, but there are interesting upgrade consequences, such as cutouts in the wall behind one of the night stands. There was a power strip inside the cutout being utilized by several products. I failed to get a picture of it, but I have never seen this before.
The warm chocolate-chip cookie presented upon check-in is a good gesture, but checking in close to midnight does not bode well for the freshness of the cookie. It was warm, but hard as a rock. Plus, there were two of us and one cookie. Surely the hotel could spare one cookie per person (although they need to be fresh).
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone needing to stay in this particular area. There is a Hampton Inn a few blocks away. If you want to venture away from Hilton properties, there is a Westin across the street.
