Extremely friendly staff. Great customer service. Exceptionally clean room. Comfortable bed and pillows. Great all around experience. I'll make a point to stay at Doubletree hotels in the future based on this experience.

The water pressure in the shower was not great. Otherwise it was a great experience. I took the bus from the airport and the stop was walking distance to the hotel. Was able to walk to the UT campus from the hotel. Very convienient. Had a package delivered and they staff was very friendly.

A great hotel at a prime location convenient to the university and downtown. Picturesque cemetery view or city views. This was my second visit and I will certainly stay here again. Paying extra for parking is a practice I despise, however.

The DoubleTree Hotel by the University is an excellent place to stay. Rates are reasonable and great staff to meet your needs. Felt safe . At first it was a little difficult to get there due to access only off the frontage road. We were in town to go to St. David's Hospital and wanted to stay in a quality...

This hotel is Awesome! The rooms look like they were remodeled last week and the service with a smile is always a plus. I had breakfast, made to order omelets and waffles with a buffet. When I'm in Austin this will be my home away from home.

Whether you have a UT student in your family or just want to see Austin, the Doubletree Suites is a great location with excellent service! A brief walk to all UT sporting events and Erwin Center concerts, easy access to major highway, and the rooms are updated and very clean. Definitely recommend!

This hotel is truly within walking distance to the Frank Erwin Center in Austin. We also were able to walk through the neighborhood to eat dinner. We found a nice sidewalk bistro to eat at. It was also very close to Franklin's famous BBQ. Easy in and out of the hotel right on the feeder road.

We came in town for a show at the Frank Erwin center. Easy walk from hotel, 24 hour restaurant outside was good too. Parking cost 15 a day. Would have been nice if that would have been included. Would highly recommend.

I've stayed here a few times over the years because it's close to downtown (20-25 minute walk) but right on the I-35 and with plenty of parking. It was only on this last visit that I discovered that they actually charge $15 for parking. That's ~$10 cheaper than the downtown hotels but you're a long way from the centre. Having...
