I sometimes feel, when reading reviews on Tripadvisor, that people are only happy in brand-spanking new hotels.
Well, we like more mature and more comfortable and the Doubletree typifies that. On top of comfort, every single member of staff we encountered were unfailingly friendly and helpful. And a location that can't be beaten.
We had a "junior suite" with the beds and bathroom "upstairs" which meant a good-sized living room with sink, fridge and microwave "downstairs". For some reason the bathrooms are tiny. Squeezed in, almost as an afterthought. Also, no safe. I do expect to see a safe in a good hotel room these days. Another minor criticism is that there were two rather old TVs on which several of the channels were mis-tuned. There was no channel guide and neither was one available from reception.
Breakfast buffet was good - especially as we got free coupons for this, as Hhonors Gold, in lieu of a room upgrade, presumably. Staff here were really great!
Turn-down service is also provided.
Special mention to one of the reception staff who went out of her way to find an emergency dentist for us. Thank you Gabby!More
