Gainesville - Tallahassee I woke up early because i was meeting my host Nicholas at a subway restaurant at 11.30 p.m in a little town called Trenton only 30 miles away north of gainesville. It was a short easy laid back ride. I didnt feel like doing effort, so i enjoyed the landscape and cycled at a slow pace. I arrived at the subway and sat there for a hour waiting for Nicholas, making advantage of one of americas greatest things: refills. ...
So. Not much to report here. Except I learnt a key lesson - don't leave things to the last minute, especially when you're hungover! I knew there was a bus leaving Miami at 6:00pm to Atlanta that was overnight. Except when I went to book it that day, it was full. Oops. I had no accommodation in Miami so I had to ...
... a line!
This afternoon we finally got around to mowing the lawn. It's not that we are lazy. You see, it has been wet in Tallahassee lately. The original plan was to mow the lawn yesterday since Steele had the day off, but mother nature had other plans. Mother nature planned for us to mow the lawn this afternoon between afternoon showers. I sure hope that this is not an omen of what's to come.
We call this the real starting point because this is where we left the Interstate highways for the scenic byways and rural roads of America. Our day was filled with small town USA, Wonderful farms growing corn, wheat and soy. The historic old downtowns, each with their own special ...
... Tina was about go to a interview for a job and offered us to come with her to the city. So we went with her and got some good burgers in the city. After that we had a drink and talked about all kind of stuff. The funny thing was that I (Mactar) forgot my wallet with my ID in the car, Tina and Max showed her their ID and she couldn't figure out Max's age so we just told the waitress that I'm 21 and she believed it haha. So we had a couple beers, after a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Doubletree Hotel Tallahassee
I stayed at the Doubletree February 28 while conducting business with the State. The room, bedding and bath, were nice. I had a great view of a Federal courthouse. As a Hilton Honors Gold VIP member, I was given a couple of drink coupons at the in-hotel restaurant and free breakfast. My chief complaint relates to computer support. They have wireless internet, but I needed a modem. They only had 2 and those were checked out. The front desk said that everytime they rented them out, they ended up being stolen. When I explained that the deposits were more than enough to go out and buy some more, she replied that they hadn't done that. One of the business center computers did not have access to the internet. The front desk was not concerned with that either. Overall, it's an okay hotel, but don't expect anyone to bend over backwards to help you.
Horrible Customer Service
I have stayed in this hotel several times as it is located close to FSU and downtown area. Each time I have had something go wrong from rude desk clerks, poor room service (food), broken A/C, dirty bathrooms and arriving late (confirmed reservation and credit card on file) to find out my room was given away. No manager on staff really cares as I have complained each time and I filed a complaint with Hilton who owns property. I will no longer give them top $$$ for this kind of service.
Find some place else to spend your $$$.
The Doubletree Hotel in downtown Tallahassee should be much nicer than it is. While I don't expect a Doubletree to be luxurious, this hotel did lack in certain areas. The room in which I stayed was spacious and clean and had a nice view of the old capitol building. The room furnishings, however, showed their age. I would characterize the decor of my room as "yard sale" style because of lack of consistency. The color/type of wood differed greatly among the furnishings. Some of the furniture was early American style, some appeared to be French provencial style, while some were modern such as the arm chair with its brushed metal legs. While the bedside tables actually matched, even they were different: one had a ceramic lamp with a loose lampshade that swung in the air due to the A/C while the other had a rusted wall mounted swing arm lamp (that looked ready to fall off the wall) directly above it. The television, though big and new, only received about a dozen channels. The bathroom was clean and reasonably sized and had clearly been renovated; however, there was again a lack of attention to detail by this hotel. A large length of the tile baseboard was missing from my bathroom leaving a long gaping hole.
I had already made reservations for this hotel when I came on tripadvisor and read all of the reviews. I nearly cancelled because of them, but since it was only for a night, I decided to stick with it.
This hotel has the worst customer service. I stayed here for two weeks. Week #1 they put me in a room 509. I had to listen to the elevator all day and night long. I couldn't sleep. Week #2 was worse. At check in they got my reservation wrong. Even though my reservation was in my hand and said a King bed, they insisted that it was not defined and I ended up with two double beds. Then I got to my room and there was only feather pillows. Being alergic to feather pillows, I called the front desk and asked for nonfeather pillows and I was told that they do not have any. Next I turned on the TV and it didn't work. When I called they said tht all rooms ending in 17 or 19 did not have TV. They refused to move me to a new room until anther person in our group insisted that I be moved before our whole group check out. Then no one would help me move all of my bags, even after I asked. To top it all off, I didn't even get my cookie at check in.
Stay somewhere else at all costs. I've now stayed in three hotels over football weekends. This hotel was the most expensive and by the far (hands down) the worst one of the three, and one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. The only plus to this place is the location, and maybe the lobby (isn't not bad). The rooms are dirty...exceedingly dirty. The carpet had tons of stains all over it, and not just tiny little ones, but enormous ones. The furniture looked like it hadn't been updated in about 20 years...all torn up and scratched. The bathroom was simply gross. There was mold around the sink and all over the shower/tub. The water in the shower was decent pressure, but it alternated constantly between hot and cold. The fixtures in the tub were also falling off...oh yeah, the ceiling in the bathroom was caving in. It sounds horrendous...it is. This is probably one of the seediest places I have ever stayed...it kills me that they charge $240/night for football weekends. It's worth about $30/night or should be rented by the hour. The staff is all right...a bit rude...but mostly just lazy. Nothing gets done. I went down to the exercise room to find that the only thing that worked in it was the TV. The maitenance guy was in there watching a football game and jokingly said, "I'd rather watch the game than fix these things, you know what I'm saying?" That summed it up. The management at this place is dismal. Whoever runs this hotel should be fired. I've stayed at the Courtyard and the Raddisson, which is also downtown. While no place in Tallahassee is going to be an incredible four star hotel, those other two were by far better (the Courtyard was the cleanest). The Doubletree is really, really bad. Unless your only concern is being right downtown, avoid this hotel like the plague.
Renovated rooms are nice...
Came to the Double Tree after checking out of the Governor's Inn. Got a renovated room and was not disappointed. For the area, the renovated rooms are above average. Brand new bedding, rugs, etc. Bathrooms are beautiful -- New tile, new shower/tub, new toilet, new mirror. Chairs are recovered with beautiful new fabric.
Of course, remnants of the old exist too -- Some of the furniture (slightly marred), one of the pictures (just plain ugly), and the air condition (old, window unit). Room did seem a bit humid, but where in Tally is it not?
No wake up call; No TV; No shuttle reservation; No cookie; No information about the city; you be the judge...
Stuck in a Nightmare
Staff was made up of young, snooty, condescending brats. There was little concern for special circumstances involving young patrons or students. Check in time was adjusted around football games to the disadvantage of everyone else. Business guests and students who were without student housing, were forced to leave the hotel to become homeless to accommodate football patrons over homegame weekends. All FSU parents should AVOID THIS HOTEL!
What is that smell?! Urine! in all common areas. Room was dirty and outdated. Slime running down window from a.c. unit in room above ours. Vagrant's coming in to use restroom and watch T.V. NOT a good experienc.
