I'm typing this whilst speeding along I-10 through Western Texas at around 80 miles per hour; incredibly the rest areas in the State offer free wi-fi which is more impressive than our suite in Austin last night!

Yesterday morning we awoke in sunny Galveston. Sadly our $34 a night motel didn't offer beach views (it did have …

... truth. Plus it's one of the key facets which makes GTA this impressive-seeking game. Head to Northwood, where you'll locate a building by having an ad that suggests "video and Rock-Star audio and dvds" using a modest Rockstar brand onto it. I'm unsure which section of Northwood. Among the huge draws for PC gambling is multiplayer, so if they can make an original Laptop-oriented multiplayer experience, it ...

A few dobs in the park

... Sue, Sam and I drove around to a massive park and out came the Sherrin for a few dobs...... end to end. I haven't kicked the footy since Sam was 15 so it was a rusty start. But it wasn't too long before I was dobbing a drop punt 50m and the odd "Screwy" 60m. I even got the checkside working. It rekindled a few memories for me, 30yrs ago when I was in my prime!

... learning about Area 51, The Roswell Incident, and UFO's, it was time to hit the road. Another long and boring drive is ahead of us as we head out of New Mexico and in to Texas.
This trip is about a lot of things, but one the most important aspects is food. One of the main reasons for choosing Austin is the BBQ, and one of the premier Q joints in the country, Franklins BBQ, is based just up the road from our hotel. We knew from previous research that ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree Suites by Hilton - Austin

    My favorite Austin hotel

    from

    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.

    Rooms are fine, but service is lacking

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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.

    Great Get-a-way Weekend

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Good experiences at the Doubletree Suites

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Wonderful service

    from

    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.
