“Not up to doubletree standards”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Rooms need an uplift and are very dark. Beds a bit too soft for me. A/C a bit noisy. Still not a bad place to stay - just not up to standards for this chain. Close to univ. Stadium and a few blocks from the capital but all on the other side of I35. Also view out window is a cemetery.

Stayed June 2014

I'm a fan of Doubletree, even without their cookie. (Delicious, but I'm health-conscious) Nice location in Austin, with the Capitol, Austin Campus, and LBJ Library nearby. Polite staff, easy check-in. There's a nice little bar, and a restaurant if you don't feel like going out. The only walkable restaurant is a Denny's, which shares a parking lot with the DoubleTree. Unless you have a breakfast pass for the hotel, go to Denny's. Rooms are comfortable and clean. I was in Austin for a conference, and this property was the most reasonably priced. Five minutes from the Austin Conference Center and nearby sites. Use this place as your home base, and save yourself some $$$.

Awesome staff and close to downtown. the weather was great and the bikers that were there were fun. We had an awesome time. The staff let us know what was close and where to go. I have nothing else to say. Just go and find out for yourself.

This Doubletree is not up to Doubletree standards. The room was too dark (dark paint), not enough light for wife to put on makeup. Door to hall did not close correctly. Bathroom room was cracked. The breakfast buffet selection was poor - I expected more at a Doubletree. The front desk staff was very good - too bad that the room was not equal to the staff. There are too many other good hotels in the Austin to stay at this Doubletree. I would not recommend this Doubletree to others.

The hallways and elevator were dirty and needed to be vacuumed. Pillows were dirty and partially stained. They were rolled up in a ball and stuck in the pillow case. When the were put in pillow case correctly they were flat and very uncomfortable.

Overall stay at the conveniently located Double Tree Hotel directly across IH-35 from the UT campus was quite nice - excellent staff & spacious room. Only problem was that the light fixtures in both the bathroom and dressing area put out so little light that we felt like we were in a candle lit cave!

I have traveled all over staying in other Hilton's and this hotel was just average. Not worth the $200/night rate. A/C in hallways not working, staff was great, but décor average. You can tell this is an older hotel, with a low grade make over.
