DoubleTree by Hilton Las Vegas Airport
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
Arriving back in Vegas last night Dan and I decided we wanted to hit the town like crazy wild kids. Unfortunately, for me, going out meant I would have to tackle my hair. Now, people never tell you the down side of convertible cars when you have reasonably long hair. I settled myself on a comfy chair and requested Dan left the room as brushing the …
Tim's entry says it all really.......a relatively incident-free flight until Vegas, where my bag was left behind. Apparently "seen" in LA, it was to arrive in Vegas on a later flight in the afternoon. With that sorted, and with new friends met, we departed the airport and checked in to the hotel. A bit of shut-eye for some, a swim for others, TV, …
The trip so far - according to Tim. We are here. Wow, what a journey. The trip went well, for me relatively quick. The departure was tough on everyone. Tears flowed as loved ones said goodbye. Kids were left feeling numb as mums and dads headed through the doors. Tears of sadness rather than tears of joy. "I can;t believe we are doing this" I said …
Staying overnight at the Doubletree Hotel after taking the Friday afternoon flight from Albany. Plan on getting an early start driving to the Grand Canyon on Saturday morning. Assuming we're not too exhausted from the "flight!"
12/17/06 After a short rehearsal the first night the band stopped at the Double Tree Hotel in Modesto California to sleep. This is basically the low down on what happens when the Oregon Marching Band checks into a hotel (I had the opportunity to discover that though the band's sects act independently of each other, essentially the same activities …

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Las Vegas Airport
We stayed here for pleasure. I loved this hotel. It was nice and clean and off the strip so it was quiet! The shuttle service was great. It dropped us off at the MGM and picked us back up when we called. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a view of the strip from our 6th floor room. Very nice! Would definately stay there again!
You can have your cookie and eat it too in peace.
This is the perfect place to stay in Las Vegas if you want to get away from the crowds, the traffic, and the noise of the Strip. The hotel is in a good location to quickly get to the strip and the airport but far enough to avoid the trappings. The service was great, not to mention the free chocolate chip cookies!
This is the most businessy hotel you're going to find in Vegas. Not one slot machine in sight, nor even mention of one, or where to find one. (Heck, there are even slot machines in the Safeway!) Not that this is a bad thing, just rather unusual for Vegas. The hotel itself was perfectly nice. Not as good as other Doubletree's I've visited but tagged that as being product of an "airport" hotel. Funny thing is it's is really no closer to the airport than much any other hotel in Vegas. This location is down below the airport....south of the main Las Vegas strip - but they did have a reliable and free shuttle that would take people to the MGM at decent intervals. Please note however - for persons traveling for business or planning meetings at this location - the hotel doesn't even have a real restaurant. It has a little bakery...that's it! There is an Applebees out front, but that can get boring pretty quickly. They will tell you there are other food options in reasonable walking distance, but not really. Quite a long jaunt down the road there is a sandwich shop and some other stuff, but it really isn't comfortably walkable. So without a rental car you're pretty stuck for quick convenient food.
We stayed here as a reslut of our flight being overbooked when flying out of Vegas on March 6, 2005.
I found the staff were very nice. Was only in town for one night, but the free shuttle to The Strip worked for me as I had no car.
Had dinner when I got back at the Applebees at the far end of the parking lot (yes there *is* a restaurant nearby, as well as an Au Bon Pain off the lobby).
Very convenient to airport.
Good alternative to casino hotels
We found this hotel to be attractive and well-maintained. Our room with two queen-size beds was spacious and clean. The pool area was neat and the water was clear. The hotel has a nice exercise room which we did not use. There is a bakery located on the first floor that is open from 6 a.m. until about 10 p.m. I found the front desk staff to be very helpful with questions about Las Vegas sightseeing. I needed an unusual-sized box to ship something in, and they quickly found one for me. I needed a photocopy made at 4 a.m. and they helped me with that (the business center was closed, of course). This Doubletree is very convenient to the airport.
Great airport choice!
Excellent LAS airport choice. Check-in was fast and friendly. The room was clean and spacious. They have an excellent Au Bon Pain cafe in the lobby which serves great food at reasonable prices. Very convenient location. The cookies are outstanding!
My boyfriend and I had gotten stranded in Las Vegas overnight due to a back up in flight delays so our airline put us up for the night at the Double Tree. We had been at the airport for over 5 hours waiting to find out if we were coming or going.The airport first of all, has no selection of places to eat. Whatever is available isn't always open either so needless to say, we were starved.We arrived at the hotel to check in and it was a complete mess. They were asking people to use their credit cards to make a deposit on the rooms. This shouldn't have been our problem. It should have been dealt with with the hotel and the airline. I felt bad for this one lady who didn't have a credit card but only a few dollars and her little boy with her.This hotel was generally ok. It was quiet and clean but there was no room service, nowhere to eat and was in the middle of nowhere. I didn't really think that the hotel staff was particulary friendly. They seemed more irritable than anything.Check out time was 11am. At around 10:15 am, I was getting dressed and getting ready to check out when the maid service opened our door!!!!!!!!!! She had the nerve not to apologize, asked us rudely when we would be done and then came back again before 11 am. I went downstairs to inform the management and told them I would be out of the room before 11 and that I just needed to go back and get my things. I went back upstairs and found that my room key no longer worked. I went back downstairs to get another key. When I finally got in my room, that same maid was cleaning the room (at 10:35) even though my things were still there.Avoid this hotel if you can. The staff, location and service are horrible.
Nice & confortable
Stayed here in July 2003. Nice confortable rooms, nice furniture, small but nice pool. A bit far from strip, but easy to park and get to your room. Complimentary shuttle to strip and airport. Good hotel to stay in if you do not have a car, or do not wish to stay in a huge hotel with loud casinos.
Nice property, a bit far but you can park nearby!
Overall, this property is a good value if you get a good rate, for which I did at $35/night for a weekend!. Since it's a non-gaming establishment, there's no noisy or busy atmosphere. Just park your car within footsteps of the lobby, then go to the room elevators just a few more steps away. The fact you can park your car and walk to your room so quickly more than makes up for the off-strip location. Room was quite large and nice but nothing to write home about. Only complaint was the loud AC unit, as it wasn't central air, just a huge window unit that didn't have any problem cooling the room off even in 115 degree heat!
