The Doubletree is located a few miles north of Charlottesville on Rt. 29. Coming from Charlottesville expect the “iron curtain” of traffic lights and also beware of the turn in to the Doubletree is confusing at best it looks more like a turn into a car lot. Once you find the driveway the hotel is at the top of the hill and looks nice from the outside. Parking is free, well lit ground lot, and plenty of it.
Check in was easy. The staff was putting up the Christmas village decorations that added a nice touch to the lobby. Being a Hilton Gold member seemed to have netted an upgrade to a Suite. Suite 110 is located in the basement or ground floor. The Cons of the suite loooooong way from the front door, the hallway is poorly lit with lots of dark corners which may give some folks the willy's. Once inside the Suite you are met by a large living room with small refrigerator, flat screen TV, sink, couches, etc. The Bedroom had a large jacuzzi tub in the corner. (It took over 10 minnutes of running the hot water before it got hot). The view from the room is onto some grounds and a wooded area.
Problem #1 killed a dime sized black spider on the side of the bed and the enxt morning found another baby black spider on the bathroom floor.
Problem #2 while hunting for additional spiders I looked under the bed and wished I had not! There were large dust balls, a piece of wrapped candy, and a ½ empty jar of icy hot, amongst other things. Looking behind the bedside tables there was dust balls, paper clips, pens, bits of paper.
I was working long hours and never brought this to management's attention so I don't know what their response would have been.
On-site Gym next to indoor pool is bright and open and has free weights! Breakfast was complimentary with the Gold membership, $13 otherwise. It was good, waffle and omlette station and a mix of hot and cold food.
I would stay here again
