Excellent for Christmas shopping
Recently had a great time at this hotel. Stayed just one night, so that we could powershop at the nearby mall. The front desk was welcoming and friendly. The bellhop was more than happy to drive us to the mall and pick us up when we were done; much easier than trying to fight for parking. Good food in the Quiet Bar. Clean rooms. Agree with previous reviews that the television channels weren't great. The Sweet Dreams beds had many pillows. Slept better than I have in a long time. Excellent light-blocking curtains--accidentally overslept (oops).
Will definitely stay here again. Would recommend to anyone looking for a shopping getaway.
My wife and I stayed here two nights recently. The rooms are very spacious, clean, and quiet. The beds were the most comfortable ones he have run into in a hotel.
The location is very convenient, right off the freeway.
Our package included two breakfasts in the hotel restaurant. The food was very good and the service very attentive.
This was our second stay at the Doubletree, Bellvue. We plan to stay here again next year, while visiting our friends.
I spent a couple nights at the DoubleTree in Bellevue, WA on October 31 and November 1, 2005. After reading some earlier reviews I was a little concerned about the charge for parking, which seemed odd. While I was there, it may have appeared that they were charging for parking (you had to get a ticket to enter the gated lot) but there was no one manning the booths and you just exited without having to pay anything.
The rooms were extremely spacious and well furnished. The beds, linens and towels are very good quality. The hotel has a number of amenities including a decent workout room, restaurant, small gift shop and a bar.
The internet access is about $12 extra a day which is a little high considering most other hotels in the area provide this for free.
Best in Bellevue
I was very impressed with the Doubletree Bellevue. The staff was exceptionally friendly, the location was great, and the rooms were very large for standard rooms. We had a king sized bed and it was by far the most comfortable bed I've ever sleeped in at a hotel. I do a lot of traveling with business and wish more places had beds like these. We were there for 3 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The only drawback was that parking was $11 per day. We kinda cheated and parked at the hotel next door for free. It seemed pretty strange that they were charging for parking - almost nowhere in Bellevue does. I booked the room through a mileage plan program so I could earn bonus miles for my stay. Beware of a double charge if you do this. My card got charged twice for the stay because there was a mixup. They were very appologetic and reversed the charge right away, but it was still a little bit of a hassle. Overall though - it was one of my best hotel experiences. I will definately return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All common areas were attractive and well kept. The room was enormous and the beds were perfect! Staff was also very friendly. The only negative was the $11/night for parking (the lot was never more than 2/3 full and the area didn't seem busy enough to justify the parking cost).
Huge, comfortable room with a nice view
This hotel reminded us of our hometown Hyatt - big and busy, yet nice and efficient. We enjoyed our huge comfortable room with a view, the warm cookies upon check-in, and the "Quiet Bar." The location is great for exploring Seattle, too. Consider taking a side trip to the east to visit quaint Issaquah and/or Snoqualmie Falls. We have no reservations about recommending this hotel.
Nice, but a few gripes
Spent two nights March 11 & 12 for a convention that was very conveniently located on premises. The room was very nice, quiet and comfortable, with updated furnishings and bedding, and the bathroom was also fine, well-lit and roomy. However, the on-site restaurant The Atrium was a failure! We ordered oatmeal - and I mean, how can you screw up oatmeal?? Well, if you cook it to mush and then serve it lukewarm so that the sugar won't even melt.... and others complained about eggs benedict with a hollandaise with the consistency of library paste. Service was cheerful and the manager ended up not charging for the eggs. The prices were typically high, $5 for oatmeal, $2.50 for coffee... they should be able to fix these restaurant problems.
Another gripe: they wanted $9.95 per day for internet access. This made smoke come out of my boyfriend's ears, so we didn't go for it.
Third: we needed to find an auto parts store, so asked at the front desk. We were referred to a sort of low-rent concierge who whipped out a map that listed the local eateries. First he drew a nice green line to a local Fred Meyers. Then, when pressed for an auto parts store again, he drew another line to a Radio Shack. (We needed a new ball hitch.) We should've just swiped the yellow pages.
So if all you're looking for is a nice room in a good hotel, this is a fine choice and well-located in a leafy part of Bellevue. But if you are looking for those extra service touches... just be informed.
Huge rooms, clean and well appointed
We got a great deal for this hotel through Hotwire. This hotel seems a bit older but the rooms seemed to have been recently remodelled as they were well appointed with nice furniture and nice carpet. The rooms are huge. We got one by request with 2 queen size beds, very nice if you have 4 people staying. Another nice extra is that they have a full bathroom, shower, toilet, sink, and then another sink just outside the bathroom, again very nice if you are sharing the room. The location is also nice, with very easy access to the freeway, only about 15-20min from downtown Seattle and nearby mall in Bellevue with lots of food options.
Average but Comfortable
Stayed on business visit to area in May 04. Very nice big, comfortable rooms with great bed and pillow. Very clean. Choice of TV Channels felt very old (News & Sports but no MTV) but was fine just to spend your nights there. Great mall nearby in Bellevue and the hotel were very kind to take us there and pick us back up after shopping. Was fine for 2 nights but wouldn't like to stay much longer.
Good place to stay for Seattle tourists
We stayed here for 2 nights during Memorial Day Weekend 2004. Very spacious rooms, heated pool and whirlpool, and convenient location adjacent to 405 and I-5 were among the pluses. It was simple to go to/from Seattle and Mt. Rainier from here if you have a car and time your travel as to avoid rush hour. We had no problems, and really enjoyed our stay.
