Our room was clean when we got there. AC was nice and cold, I forgot my blow dryer and was happy they had a regular conair blow dryer instead of the baby ones hotels usually have. Front staff was friendly and helpful while we checked in and out. Didnt stay in the room much but while we were there we didn't have problems.
We thought it was the one more downtown but it was only about 3 exits down from the doubletree that is downtown so it wasnt too bad.
This property is beginning to show its age. Needs some maintenance work.
The AC did not get cold and was miserable at night. They were remodeling our floor so we were woken up at 7 am by construction workers loudly working in the hallway. Very unsatisfied and disappointed with the hotel.
I didnt understand why house keeping had to go around the floor at 9am in the morning asking everyone if they needed house keeping. We were leaving that morning anyways. Didnt see why they had to wake us up and ask us.
Value of being in a nice hotel close to downtown Austin for a reasonable price.
Tough to get to hotel from freeway.
I enjoyed that there was more in the room than just a bed and a tv. There was a couch and a coffee table, as well as a French door going out to the courtyard/pool area right from your room. Just be careful not to close the door behind you without grabbing a key like I did; the door to outside locks behind you! The location was great. Since it's right off of highway 35, it's fast to get anywhere in the city.
I wish there had been free self parking, but the price was so good that even with the extra $10 a day for parking, this hotel was still cheaper than other hotels.
The Hilton DoubleTree is a Hilton Hotel but does not recognize their own Hilton Honors loyalty program members that book through Kayak. If you book through Kayak, they treat you as if you were a total stranger staying at an unbranded hotel on the moon. None of your Hilton Honors amenities apply. They won't even record your Hilton Honors number on your folio.
Tried to pass off a queen bed as a king.
The grounds of the hotel were very very nice and the staff was amazing.
The pool is sort of enclosed so even if on the streets it is 90 degrees, it feels about 80 by the pool, and it is all shady, Not good for laying out.
The bartender & waitress that was on duty while we were there on saturday p/m 10-23-2010
