We stayed for 3 nights recently to tour around New England and use the waterpark attached to the Doubletree. The family room was fantastic! Two small beds (they say "toddler size" on the website but my tall 7-year old had room to spare - it's more of a short twin than a toddler size) in their own area with their own TV, dresser, night table, lighting etc, then the enclosed bathroom jutting out and separating the two areas, and in the other side of the room, a king sized (very comfortable) bed, TV, etc. The same price as a regular room with two double beds, but so much nicer! There was also a fridge in the room, and free wireless. I did find the room (1st floor) somewhat dark, especially since I kept the curtains closed so people couldn't see in from the parking lot. The hotel was very clean, but the carpets, etc, are quite worn. As with most hotels, the walls are thin and the first two nights we were there we had very noisy neighbours. As far as service goes, there is some room for improvement - we called for extra towels our second day there and waited over 2 hours for them to finally arrive. This was after my husband went down to the front desk after 90 minutes and asked to have them immediately, since the kids and I were in the hotel pool and wanted to get out and dried off. The front desk staff varied; about half were very helpful and cheerful and the rest very curt. The concierge was incredible though - he drove us to the commuter rail station to get the train to Boston, told us to call when we were heading back, and was there at the station to pick us up when we returned! Very friendly guy too, and he explained how to get tickets for the train and other things we needed to know to get around in the city. The kids very much enjoyed the waterpark and also the regular hotel pool (which was large and not crowded when we were there). The location in Danvers was very convenient to visit Salem, Portsmouth, and Boston. Danvers itself is very confusing to get around in though - GPS is a big help. We were pleased with our stay at the Doubletree.
