“Doubletree - Columbia MD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

I am a business traveler (HH Diamond) and have tried the Garden Inn and the Doubletree. One week at each. This hotel was in a very quiet place and as such there was not much activity around the area. In fact the bar/restaurant was like a morgue. The menu was very limited, but I tried it anyway. Very so-so as bars go. Having HH diamond status should have at least put me up on the HH floor, but this did not happen. So who gets to go up to that floor? Overall staying here was OK, but I would prefer a place with other restaurants close by that I could walk to. The closest places were at a mall a couple miles away. Breakfast was good, not cooked to order, but a nice hot buffet that changes day to day. Open at 6:00 a.m. which was good for me since I start my day early.

Dear Robert W C,
I am so sorry that we did not meed your expectations. As a Diamond member, you should have been on the HHonors floor. I appreciate you bring this to my attention and we will try to not let this happen again to you or any other Diamond guest. I hope that you will see fit to give us another try.

The lobby in this hotel is spectacular. Rooms are well furnished and extremely clean. A great Hilton property through and through. But the main reason this hotel is so great is the staff! They will really make you not want to leave! The hotel itself is tucked back off the main road so it's quite peaceful.

I would highly recommend this hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are large and fresh. And the cookie sure helps. If you plan to stay on a night when an event is booked in the conference room, ask if there is music and if so do not stay in a room on the courtyard.

This is a great place to have a meeting! The staff is friendly, attentive, and professional. You can really tell that they go out of their way to make sure your event runs smoothly. They handle those last minute event changes with ease and really make the day of an event stress free!

The rooms are clean and contemporary. The hotel is located in an office park. Close to a Walgreen's, easy drive to Columbia Mall. Staff was friendly. Food options limited to in-house restaurant. Room 244 overlooks dumpster, compactor, next to ice machine, across from housekeeping office, but still pretty quiet.

convenient, great accommodating staff, quiet. would recommend for pleasure or business. First class place and service. Staff went above and beyond to fill a request I had, which was very pleasing and above expectations.

Except for a problem cause my own carelessness, this was probably one of the best hotel stays I've had in the last 3 years. After a 6 hour drive on Friday, we arrived at 2am Saturday morning and changed our reservation from one to two "Double Queen" adjoining rooms...warm cookies were a pleasant surprise. There was ample parking with several luggage carts. Except for a poor housekeeper (just a bad apple), the service was excellent.
