Washcloth left in my room.
There was a washcloth left in my room. That tells me the room wasn’t cleaned like guaranteed. During this unprecedented time of Covid-19, that should not happen. Very disappointed.

Family Visit to DE
With family in the area, I have been staying at this hotel for about 5 years. The service has always been great, rooms nice and spacious. Obviously with COVID-19, many services have changed or been stopped. I definitely miss the restaurant and bar service but I do understand. With the limited options, they definitely need to focus more on the cleanliness of the rooms. I can't wait for this property to return to full service.

Needing updates, but very clean.
The rooms were very clean and sanitized thoroughly. There were plenty of sanitizing wipes and pumps located throughout the hotel. The hotel has seen some wear and tear and is in need of updating. The furniture is showing wear. Only one floor had an operating ice machine. Otherwise, the stay was comfortable and the cleanliness was most important.

The DoubleTree hotel was built in 1978 (last renovated appx 2006). And it kinda shows. Room was spacious. But hotel no longer provides microwave in each room. Although the king size bed was comfy, I had to change rooms because sink water was super hot. But tub was barely lukewarm--even after letting water run for 15 minutes. In the new room, water was instantly hot in sink AND tub. The pool was open on Fri and Sat night. But air and water temp were barely 65 degrees on a frigid night where it's appx 35 degrees outdoors. Hopefully they'll be able to improve the site soon.
