We needed a last minute room and this was perfect! The room was clean and the bed was super comfy. The staff was nice and fulfilled everything we needed. The only thing was that we didn't know you had to pay to park in the hotel. You can park in the street for free as well, but we got there late at night on a Friday night and didn't want to go around to look for parking.

Dear Doubletree guest I was happy to review that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the parking. Hope you will stay with us again in the future.

Nice facade, but terrible room.

Pros: Clean Good dining facilities. Central location for traveling to nearby venues.
Cons: Do not use rooms next to elevator shafts.
Location: Not an area to walk in the local area in the evening. Each time you left the garage there was a fee. Security was minimal in garage area.
Our room on the seventh floor was appropriate, however it was located immediately adjacent to the elevators. The shaft was beyond the wall and was constantly in use, and noisey,until it diminished in the early hours of the morning. Very poor sleeping environment. The dining room staff was excellent. Front desk personal were curt, but effective. Parking was additional and expensive.

Nice, clean rooms with comfortable bed

Pros: The maid did a good job cleaning the room
Location: It was within walking distance of the train station and the Opera House.
The hotel was nice. Unfortunately there aren't any restaurants open within walking distance on a Sunday morning. We ended up eating the breakfast buffet at the hotel. It was delicious. I recommend the omelets and muffins.
