        The staff was very nice and helpful and everything was clean!

      • Couple

        Reception staff was very ill-mannered and inexpert. The online reservation was processed bad, when we arrived at the hotel we had to wait almost 1 hours because they didn't find the reservation. Their suggestion was that we call to Booking and solve our problem!! Sorry but, solving attitude was horrible!!

      • Couple

        The bed was extremely comfortable! I loved the decor of the hotel in general. I was pleased to see an energy efficient toilet and of course, I loved the warm cookies offered @ check-in.

        The only thing that I didn't like about the Doubletree was the air conditioning was extremely loud in the room. Also, if you want to be in the midst of downtown (I.E. - Riverwalk), you should consider staying elsewhere. It is not within walking distance.

        We enjoyed the convenience of the bus system, even though we were confused at first with the different types and colored routes. There is no public transportation near our home, so new experience, but fun. We walked almost everywhere and found the hotel convenient to the downtown area. The hotel is beautiful and well kept/clean. Our room was spacious, clean and very convenient for a traveler.

        The "sleep number bed" even though considered a luxury, was not comfortable for us no matter what settings were used. We didn't always come back to a made-up bed/room and fresh towels. That was frustrating, but easily remedied with a phone call to the desk for towels.

        The coffee they provided was great, and the room was comfortable

        Good breakfast, the room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Internet WIFI in the room is free.

        The hotel is very near The Mexican Market but you have to go by car to the riverwalk. Besides, the noise from the street could be heard inside the room.

        10.0

        The cookies were awsome, parking is free. Busy hotel with bar, and the view of the city from the top floor parking lot was great.

        breakfast is not free.

      • Family with children
        7.4

        Very clean and comfortable. Close to alot of activities.

        Could not easily get on hwy 35 north. No continental breakfast.

      • Single
        5.8

        Broken equipment in gym, electronic keys problematic (room and gym). Front desk under-staffed. Air conditioning too loud. Bathroom not cleaned (hairs in shower, mold) Clothes iron not clean. Pool not clean (a lot of debris).

      • Family with children
        7.0

        Hotel staff were very good. For instance, there was a problem with the resturant bill at checkout, the staff immediately worked it out going above and beyond what I was even asking. Room was good for the price.

        Restuarant service was very uneven. Sometimes attentive and sometimes you could not get served. One morning I asked for coffee from four different people, each of whom said they would take care of it and then proceeded to meander around and not bring the coffee. Did not care for parking costs or the lack of shuttle to Revierwalk.

      • Family with children
        4.2

        Beds were comfortable.

        I was very disappointed in my stay. We have stayed at many other Doubletrees and expected the same atmosphere. I understand they were just remodeled, however, in my experience, anything over 120 usually comes with amenities such as a mini fridge or microwave. There was nothing like that here. The ice machines were broken on the last 3 floors so we couldn't keep anything cool. The bathrooms have no privacy, they do not lock, they simply slide shut. The white linens where stained. All together we know we will not be staying there again.

      • Group of friends
        7.4

        Easy to find off of freeway. Excellent front desk staff. Lovely breakfast dining area.

        Don't plan on relying on the shuttle service. We were told the shuttle would leave at the top of each hour. We waited 20 minutes, along with 17 others, and finally we all drove our own cars downtown. Downtown parking is difficult to find and expensive when you do find it.

      • Family with children
        5.0

        Bed was comfortable.

        We reserved 2 rooms with king size beds a month in advance. Called night before and confirmed reservation. When we got to the hotel, they did not have king size beds available.
