... Alberta re a high paying massage job working with the mining camps. She was after 6 girls, so very pleased to hear there as 2 of us. We organised a skype interview for Monday. Our last night in Austin we went to dinner with Kim at a restaurant that use to be a petrol station. So many alternative places around Austin that are really funky. We left Kim some chocolates that morning and hit the ...
... me and my belongings wet. I stood there having a bit of a mental break down. hours were going by, I was wet, cold, Broke, and tired. I couldn't get pessimistic thought out off my head. Hitchhiking can have it's mental struggles, and I wasn't winning this one. I was 2 hours into standing there that morning when I turned to look behind me. There was a car stopped, clearing out it's passenger seat. Instantly the worry and the rough thoughts went away and I was in ...
Stopped off at a cute little town called Gruene on the way to Austin (most of the towns round here were settled by Germans). Saw a chameleon! The waitress wasn't as excited as we were, but was very nice and didn't look at us weirdly. Austin is a bit of an 'indie' town apparently, and it did have a nicer feel than the other cities we've been to. The bars ...
... and the initial thinking was that there was a jumper on the bridge. 10 minutes turned to 20, and 20 to 30 -- all sitting still with the engine off --, and then we happened to hear on the radio something about President Obama's visit to Austin and then it all made sense. So at about the 55 minute mark we were finally emancipated and headed into the city, where apparently we were about a block away from the president's ...
... in Austin for an extra night, and a flight to New Orleans on Monday.
I would totally recommend Austin to anyone. Great city and very clean with a good vibe. EXCEPT one thing...BUGS!!! As y'all know, I'm not at one with nature, but unfortunately, nature is determined to be at one with me. Even at 17 floors up, my balcony seemed to attract all manor of bugs, which played havoc with my smoking regime. I even had to shout at a bat that flew a bit too close (again) ...

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree Suites by Hilton - Austin
My favorite Austin hotel
I read a few of the negative reviews and was astonished, since I have never had anything but an extremely pleasant experience here.
The rooms are always comfortable and clean, and the staf goes out of their way to help you. This is one of the few hotels that can always be coutned on to provide a good experience. The view from the rooms on the south side is magnificent, as it overlooks the grounds of the State Capitol.
Several times I have stayed in a penthouse suite and they are absolutely incredible!
I highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Austin.
We spent two nights at the Doubletree Guest Suites while in town for job interviews. The hotel is located a bit outside the central business district, but close to the Capitol and state office buildings. The rooms were fine, if a bit dated in their decor, but the bed was not as comfy as at other Hilton properties. Our room did have great views of the Capitol.
Nice rooms -- shame about the road noise!
My wife and I were in Austin for a few days whilst in the USA, and booked into the Doubletree. The rooms were OK -- a bit bog standard by other "suite hotels" standards. The kitchen was miniscule, the lounge not very large but the bathroom and bedroom were OK by our standards. ABSOLUTELY AVOID staying on the 15th street side of the hotel -- the road noise starting at 0600 doesn't end until about 2000 and a late sleep in will be ruined. You can't knock the location, but to charge $ 12 for self-parking, is a bit of a laugh.
Book this hotel!
Had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for a night during a business trip and would have gladly stayed for more. Within walking distance to UT, restaurants, and bars. Spacious accomodations that were clean and beds were very comfortable. There was only one elevator working, which was a bit annoying. The workout facility was smaller than anticipated as well, but a good jog around the city should make up for that. Room was booked through Priceline and was quite reasonable.
We stayed at the Doubletree in January 2005 for a "get-a-way" weekend. I used frequent travel Hilton points for the room, and was curious about the treatment we would get. I'm pleased to say that we were treated really well the entire stay. The hotel was beautiful, and the rooms were nicely appointed. We had a pretty downtown view from a small balcony. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was large with great counter space. My only complaint about the bathroom was the water temperature fluctuated hot and cold in the shower - probably related to the age of the hotel. The close proximity to 6th street, the warehouse district, and the capital made getting out easy. The staff was courteous, even with requests made during the wee hours of the morning. We didn't use the pool, but it was pretty, and the exercise room didn't have the type of work-out equipment we needed (weights), but we didn't miss it. We only encountered two problems during the stay. The first was the parking garage was too small for our large truck, but there was plenty of parking on the street (for free, at that). The second problem was our breakfast room service order was never picked up and made, but the hotel made up for that with free breakfast the next morning (and it was really delicious). Overall, I am an extremely picky hotel guest, and I was pleased with the Doubletree. We will definately stay there again.
Very good value for the money
This hotel offered a good value. I book it with Priceline so I didnt pay much for it (59 / night believe it or not!)
The rooms were very clean and the bed was very confortable, and my little balcony was clean. No complaints about the Double Tree. It was nice to get a warm cookie when checking in. The lobbie was a little dark at night. Parking is a little expensive but you can park on the side streets no problem. This hotel is within walking distance to the main 6th st area, so that is a plus. We went on Labor day weekend, so the hotel was booked solid...nevertheless, we had a great experience.
I would stay here again.
An average hotel w/ downtown apartment feel
First, this hotel right next to the capitol and close to 6th street(the only place to hang out in Austin). Unfortunately, I found it drab and average. Balcony was small and full of bird droppings. Walls were thin and I could hear my neighbor's phone conversations. The fitness room had a non-working water fountain and only two towels for patron use. The pool looked nice, but I didn't use it. The service at the restaurant, 15th St. Cafe, was very poor and the breakfast buffet was overpriced, espcially if you eat continental. Hard muffins and no hot cereal. Juice was extra. Geez.
I had that meal comped, but only after a few sighs and lingering stare from the hostess. Parking is $11 bucks/ day. Stay at the Hampton!
I frequent Austin alot and I am actually a fan of the Doubletree Guest Suites in Austin for a few reasons. Here's the Pro/Con breakdown:
Awful Austin Hotel
We stayed in this hotel in January 2004 for more than a week. Our room was not vacuumed. A pair of my husband's sandals disappeared. The staff was unfriendly, particularly when I bought newspapers every morning.
They advertised a heated swimming pool--the water was like ice in the pool, although the weather was warm for at least three days that week.
When we left, a young man at the desk did not greet me or say anything except "Was the bill we shoved under your door accurate?" I regret that we did not change hotels after the first day. Oh, although we had requested non-smoking rooms two months in advance, we were given non-smoking rooms on a smoking floor that really smelled. This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.
Just returned from a trip to Austin for the State Tennis Tournament. The Doubletree Suites was great. We enjoyed the bar too. The service from the bellboy was fantastic. I have never been to a hotel that was so friendly and helpful to us.........meant a lot to us. Thank you, we will be back and recommend it to others. Judy Wichita Falls, Tx.
