    Good? Kind of?

    Elevators are broken, so prepare to wait up to 10 minutes like we did to get up to our room. Even if you want to take the stairs, you can’t because they don’t go down to the lobby or to basement level parking. Beware the parking garage- it’ll cost you $30 a day with no promise of an open spot (when we returned late one night we were told we’d have to pay to park somewhere else, what’s the point of paying at the hotel then?) and is incredibly narrow- be ready to make a 15 point turn to navigate onto the ramps. On a plus, it’s in a good location and the rooms are new and clean. We won’t be back

    Great location with a few issues!

    The location of this hotel was phenomenal! The rooms were nice….we had a very scary balcony with amazing views of the airport and downtown but wished there had been some chairs on the balcony as standing that high up was a bit terrifying for those fearful of heights:) We went to put our beverages in the refrigerator inside the room and the refrigerator did not feel very cold I called the front desk and they told us that it would start working in there they would not come and fix it because there was nothing wrong with it they said… We went to a concert and when we got home six hours later our waters we put in fridge were still warm (almost warmer than before we left) which was very disappointing as we were looking forward to cold beverages after a 2 mile walk from the venue back to the hotel…We called the front desk and they offered to move us rooms which we were just exhausted and did not want to move all our stuff so this one individual did offered to run us up 2 cold waters from the front desk which we appreciated:) There is also no microwave in this room… The cabinet door where the coffee maker was wouldn’t stay open so we had to move the coffee maker to a different part of the room to make her coffee in the morning… Ironically enough when we woke up in the morning our beverages are now cold …. Shower did not drain properly….Coming from a different county we did not realize that masks were required but the hotel did not have any for purchase or complimentary..

    Unfinished Reno

    Cookies were not fresh baked but handed to us out of a cooler, Parking was $30/day there were not enough spaces, no AC, no exhaust fan in bathroom, safe was unoperable, carpet was very dated and filthy, no service of room, renovation tape still on all the room doors... for DoubleTree to own this property it fell way short of the brsnd expectation...clearly this location was opened too soon

    Disappointed

    The hotel room was nice but the AC wasn’t working and it was hot in the room all night. We told the front desk guy and he was nice enough to get the AC checked out. Other customers were also complaining about the AC. There was no accommodation was offered which was so disappointing. We paid the room almost $400 and we didn’t enjoy sleeping in it because it was hot. We will not comeback to this hotel again.

    If your a drinker or a smoker you’ll lover it here

    The customer service is ok, but enough to not stay here again. We had issues with our room as well as the actual stay. The room next door had a full blown party till 4 am ! On both nights as nothing was done. I called several times to report it and at 3 am had to go downstairs to the desk and yell at them for allowing it to happen after I called letting them know. For the amount of the room I would have expected better and that wasn’t the case. Doubletree is usually good but this one is one that I will not return too .

    Elevators Need work

    Site is not bad, yet definitely needs a review of elevator repairs. there are 4 elevators, only two are working. this often leaves a very long line in front of the elevator to return to your room or get out of the hotel.

    Convenient Hotel

    Nice hotel but very noisy room from the freeway traffic. No coke machines onsite and had to walk three blocks to get drinks. Also, elevators were very very slow. Nice walk to the Gas Lamp district and enjoyed the food and drinks there.

    Worst.Stay.Ever!!

    It was horrible, and I'll never go back. From customer service - Jessica in particular, it was the worst stay anywhere.

    The room spelled of marijuana, the elevators where overly crowded, the freight elevator was shut down which lead to the staff having to utilize the guest elevator.
