Top Notch Accommodations and Overall Service
This is well beyond one of the best DoubleTree hotels that we have ever stayed at. My husband, a pilot who spends much of his time in hotels, was extremely impressed with every aspect of the DoubleTree Burlington.
We booked a King Suite for a one week stay while waiting for our furniture to arrive from California. Our suite was spotless and like new. The cleaning staff were very pleasant and helpful. The front desk staff were very kind and most helpful in trying to accommodate our every need. The wait staff in the hotel restaurant were extremely attentive and friendly and the food was excellent! To top it off, the rate that we paid on our suite was very reasonable.
Next time you are visiting the Burlington area for a conference, just passing through, or in town for an extended period of time, I would most definitely recommend that you stay at the DoubleTree. We were made to feel like we were right at home.
Very clean, very friendly, and very respectful
I was very impressed with my recent stay at this property. I had reserved a non-smoking, King Suite, and I truly felt like a kind while I was there.
The suite was so clean. I felt as though no one had stayed there before me. The bathroom was spotless and quite large. The kitchen area, and the appliances therein, were also very very clean and appeared to have never been used. I was very impressed.
The front-desk-staff was very friendly and very willing to accommodate. I requested an early arrival and they were more than willing to oblige. They also give you a warm chocolate chip cookie upon check-in. So, good :)
I would highly recommend this location to anyone needing a place to stay in Burlington, VT. I work in a Customer Relations department in the travel industry, and receive so many complaints, I feel it is my duty to report great experiences.
We just returned from a 2-night stay at the Doubletree; it was a mini-getaway with another family.
We were thoroughly impressed with the condition of all 4 suites. They were impeccable, down to the corners of the bathroom floor tiles. I don't think we've ever stayed in such a spotless establishment! The hallways were also extremely clean. Everything looked brand new. It seems that most of the rooms are non-smoking (YAY!). The only room-related complaint of all 5 adults in the group - the beds and pillows were WAY too soft.
The suites were spacious and well-suited for privacy. The fridge, microwave and sink came in handy, as did having 2 TVs in each room, given we had 6 kids ranging in age from 4 to 17 with us (NB the channel selection could use some improvement).
The Front Desk staff were pleasant and helpful. We were also impressed by the legions of housekeeping staff we saw in the mornings - all of whom greeted us with smiles.
Trader Duke's Restaurant, which is attached, is just OK for dinner (convenient in inclement weather), but breakfast is very good. For $20 more per room, 2 adults and 2 children can choose whatever they want from the breakfast menu.
The fitness room looked well-equipped; the pool is too small for serious swimming.
For someone who has difficulty walking, I suggest advising the hotel when you reserve. There are some VERY long hallways to traverse to get to the higher-numbered suites, although you can park your car near various entry doors around the property to be closer to your room.
The hotel is well-located, but there is very little within walking distance.
We enjoyed our stay, and would return to the Doubletree without hesitation.
What a room, on arrival we were offered a free upgrade to a suite (as we had an infant). Greatest bed in North America ! We had some food in Trader dukes (not great food or staff here) and the bar (again not great staff). Check-in staff were really nice though.
Only drawback if there is one, is that the room was about 500 miles from the reception desk !!! But ultimately no big deal.
Deserves More Stars!
The hotel staff here always gives me a warm welcome and I was delighted to get a letter in my room welcoming me back to the hotel. I thought this was a nice touch for a HiltonHhonors Gold member. I got a complimentary upgrade to a suite which is very nice. The beds are great.
The location is ok. Downtown Burlington is close (and wonderful) but not within walking distance unfortunately.
Trader Joe's does an exceptional breakfast and goes way beyond the typical "hotel" restaurant.
This hotel deserves more than two stars.
A nice place to stay
I stayed at the Doubletree Hotel in Burlington in June and I have to stay it was decent. They were doing several renovations so the hallways were crowded with construction supplies. The rooms were nice, but the pool was small and got crowded. We happened to visit Vermont during a heatwave and the air conditioning in the hallways didn't seem to work properly, but our room was comfortable and cool. Trader Dukes restaurant was fairly reliable and we ate their often. Overall we had a good experience and were satisfied with our stay at the Doubletree.
A great hotel in a reasonable location
My family and I stayed in the Doubletree in July 2005, as part of a long touring holiday. We had a one bedroom suite that consisted of a bedroom with 2 x double beds and a separate living room with a double sofabed. Both rooms had large TVs. The bathroom was of a good standard. You are welcomed at check in with a warm cookie!! The hotel has a good swimming pool, hot tub and patio areas. Downtown Burlington (a lovely college town) is only a 5-10 minute drive away. There are also shops and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. This is an excellent hotel in North Western Vermont, a short drive from some beautiful scenery, the Ben and Jerry's Ice-Cream factory and Lake Champlain, gateway to upper New York state and the Adirondack Mountains.
Now the Doubletree
This hotel is being renovated and becoming a Doubletree. The entire hotel was filled with screaming teenagers when we arrived, and they kept us up late and woke us up early, but this wasn't the hotel's fault. The halls and elevator are like a sauna, and the AC in the room doesn't work all that great. Even the "updated" rooms seem dated. I would probably not stay here if I went back.
Great value in Burlington
Stayed here for 3 nights in September 2003 and had a very pleasurable experience. Hotel is well located for visiting downtown Burlington as well as Stowe and Waterbury (Ben & Jerry's - mmm!!). Also not far from Lake Champlain and Canada! Didn't eat in hotel restaurant but hotel is close to lots of dining choices. Staff very courteous and efficient. Room very comfortable and clean. Bathroom a little small - the wash basin is not in the bathroom but outside in the room. Had a fridge though which was a bonus. Lovely swimming pool. Recommended!
Price good, restaurant disappointing
Price was good. Close to highway, UVM and shopping, nice pool, small rooms, Trader's restaurant - service great but food mediocre and pricey. DO NOT get Brunch special - overpriced, long lines and pitiful selection of food. Eat somewhere else.

Well we've had our first mechanical trouble on this trip. Just after we gassed up and left Lake Placid, Phil had to pull over because his check engine and oil lights came on. We pulled over and checked it out with Uncle Jeff's help, but since the bike seemed to be running fine and we were in the middle of nowhere we had to press on. About 5 miles after that stop the battery warning light came on. 15 more ...
