“Glad I was there only one night”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

I stay at hotels at least three days every month for work and I never leave reviews but this hotel is a joke. At check-in with my wife and two small children with me in line they proceeded to give us a room with one queen bed (when we reserved a two doubles). Had to move everything once they reassigned a room and didn't get an oops or sorry just a "lets see what else we have". Charged $10 for parking but have enough spaces for maybe 1/2 of the hotels guest (parked down the street when the lot was full). The A/C unit was extremely loud. At 3am the fire alarm outside our room either was pulled or malfunctioned. If someone pulled it to be funny that is not the hotels fault but what is their fault is the hotel workers on their radios for the hour after it talking as loud as possible. The luggage carts are for bell hop use only but seems none work at the hotel. No way is this a three or three and a half star hotel. The Hilton name must have bought a couple stars. Avoid this hotel.

Room Tip: Stay at a newer hotel in the northern part of the city.

This restaurant was GREAT! The service was incredible especially a waitress named Sara. She was very professional and went out of her way to serve. I give this hotel and restaurant 5 stars.

I enjoyed my stay at the Double Tree. I was there for a business meeting for five days. The staff was very hospitable, beds were comfortable and everyone was courteous. I would recommend this location to other colleagues.

Room Tip: I had a corner room that provided much privacy.

The hotel staff is completely incompetent.

The room doesn't have a mini fridge or microwave.

It's over-priced for what it is.

The "gift shop/store" has nothing you actually need. Such as, nail clippers, a lighter, etc.

The only laundry option is to pay for them to do it for you, no coin machines.

Housekeeping never came during my three night stay. I never put on my "do not disturb" sign. Trash was piled up, I had to keep calling to get fresh towels. I called for housekeeping services three times and never received them.

Breakfast is NOT provided. To feed my wife and son, it cost me $30 at the hotel and with no fridge or microwave, it's kind of hard to go get groceries.

There are a ton of hidden fees.

When I called to get the gate code for parking, the front desk said that our room wasn't even occupied.

This has been the most frustrating hotel stay I have ever had. I use hotels all the time and I have never seen this level of service.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel.

Dear RJ0429,

Thank you for your candid review. I feel badly that you didn’t enjoy your stay with us and offer my personal apologies for not receiving housekeeping service; I plan to address this with my team as this is in no way a company standard, especially missing housekeeping service for 3 days. As we are a full service hotel, there are amenities that are not included in your stay, and we offer additional services as compared to hotels that do include breakfast. I truly regret that you were dissatisfied, so please to contact me as I would like to get more details with regard to your visit.

Regards,

Gus Luna, General Manager

Tagged along with hubby for a business convention, (not in this hotel). The parking, as many have noted is not free, and you are almost forced to park in the pay lot at check-in, due to congestion at the entrance. Check-in was seamless, lobby is open and updated, room was modern, bed comfortable, all of the normal amenities available. I have seen comments about the lack of a microwave and fridge, but have found that is not unusual in downtown hotels, in other cities, unlike suburban hotels where they are common. No strikes on that count, it seemed reasonable. What was not reasonable, was almost $4 for a glass of iced tea from the kitchen, that evening. Breakfast the next morning, in the same restaurant, was very tasty, well presented. The service was SLOOOOWWW, and I'm not sure if it was just a bad day, but I had to ask for flatware, a napkin, refill of my drink, when there was only one other table. After that, I chose not to eat there again, though I was really thirsty our last evening, so hubby got an iced tea at the bar, for much less than the restaurant, (note to self, check bar prices first!). Our last afternoon, while on the elevator, a maintenance worker and asst. were riding down with us. He asked how our stay had been, and not wanting to lie, we said, "OK". He asked "Is there anything I could do to make it better?" WOW...Never had that happen before. He gave us needed directions to an attraction we wanted to see, and wished us well. The housekeeping staff was equally pleasant and unobtrusive when cleaning around me as I stayed a little later than usual one morning. The cookies we got upon check-in were a definite plus, and the really great towels and fluffy robe were nice. Would we stay again? If we got great rates, sure. The location is VERY convenient, and after not visiting ABQ in 25 yrs, I must say there was more to see this time! Tried to review a restaurant we went to, but they are not on Tripadvisor yet, so check out Q Burgers, downtown, under the One Up Lounge. EXCELLENT and unusual selections, with funky/modern decor!

Room Tip: We were on the 13th floor, overlooking the city bldgs and plaza. Not noisy like others have said, th...

My adman uses hotels.com for my corporate travel, on this occasion she said most of the hotels I like are comparable so would the Doulbletree be ok it's near the hospital I needed so I said fine. Upon arrival I find they charge $10 to self park you car outside and unprotected. I don't appreciate the fact that this hotel is charging and the others I would have stayed at do not. I asked to speak to the manager and was told he's left for the day, hotels.com shoud have made the fact be known about the extra charges. $10 is still 10 dollars.
