    Convenient to visit University of Texas.

    Was not expecting to hear so much highway noise at night and have a grave yard on the other side of parking lot when we pulled in. Be sure to e-mail and fax reservations there. They throw the faxes away!

    The king size bed was very comfortable and the room was perfect for our needs to relax and unwind before meeting with friends. The cookies are wonderful too! We were able to check in an hour early and were given a great room with a view of the pool without asking. Very nice to be able to have Denny's next door to walk to in the morning for breakfast completing our stay. Convenient to UT stadium, alumni center and Erwin center, LBJ Library and right next door to the state cemetery.

    it was so totally convenient to the frank irwin sports center

    the air conditioning in my room didn't work and the hotel didn't fix it

    Convenient to Frank Erwin Center.

    Air conditioner leaked water and the floor stayed wet, internet didn't work.

    Clean and upgraded property with a new design and wonderful staff.

    Too far to walk to 6th street comfortably during the summer...too hot and too far from convention center and nite life!

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    I liked the courtesy of the staff and their willingness to help or answer questions.

    It was hot in all the hallways and the road traffic kept me awake.

    The room was clean and the staff were friendly.

    The location is not ideal. The hotel is sandwiched between a graveyard and a highway. Unless you have a hire car, I would not advise staying here.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Location perfect for downtown and university.

    Dont like fact that there's no free breakfast. Set up like all other major hotel chains who do offer free breakfast but doubletree charges for simple breakfast items which are included in many other hotel chains.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    I liked how close it was to ut

    The water and the linens smelled really bad! Like sewer It was expensive I only got oatmeal for breakfast and was charged for a complete buffet Because the restaurant staff was not communicative They didn't even ask if we preferred a menu they just assumed We wanted buffet

    Location

    The resturant did not have what was on the menu. The internet connection was broke sometimes and when it did work it was very very slow. The bed was too soft for me and the room had to much noise from the street.......and we were on the fifth floor. I asked for a room not looking over the cemetary, maybe I should have had one that did it might have been so noisey

  • Group of friends

    People were very nice there. Close to ut and the Erwin Center.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Staff very friendly, room clean, onsite parking at no additional fee. Restaurant staff was excellent!

    Failed to inform us of location/time for breakfast, or to give us code for wifi. Failed to provide wake up call causing us to be quite late for a morning appointment.

    Proximity to UT campus. Did not have to travel far to attend my classes. Room was clean and comfortable.

    (1) Air conditioning was not working in hallways and elevator area. (2) Dairy coffee creamers in room were spoiled. One was so bad it had already congealed and the other was just spoiled. (3) Room service did not clean room until after 5:00 PM. Had to leave my room so they could clean.
