Fabulous 8.8 From 463 reviews

DoubleTree by Hilton Austin - University Area
My stay at doubletree was absolutely wonderful. Both myself and my partner enjoyed the experience! The hotel is conveniently located close to downtown Austin. Going from 6th street back to the hotel only took about 5 minutes (late at night with minimal traffic). Plus there's a Dennys right next door! In terms of the room, it was spacious, clean, and the bed was comfortable.

Bed sheets were very comfortable and front desk staff was excellent.

Great value
This was our third year to stay in this hotel for the same annual business event. I typically bring my team, which requires that we have seven total rooms for a week. The staff is always helpful, and the rooms, while nothing special, are great for the rate. The location of the hotel puts you within five minutes of most things downtown while not breaking the bank like most of the hotels actually located in downtown. Recommend for that reason.

Disappointed -in resturant service
The hotel was great, however the restaurant staff that morning I checked out was not friendly - I had to ask twice for hot tea. The host/server was unorganized and rude. I stay here often and this is the first time I have had bad service.
