Doubletree Indialantic Potential But.... A review of DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel Melbourne Beach Oceanfront
The rooms are quite nice -- King size bed with small patio overlooking the ocean/beach. Large TV; Small closet with iron and ironing board. Separated by vanity area with hairdryer. Towels white and fluffy. Small bathroom with toilet and glass enclosed shower (note -- no tub). The "living room" area has a pull out sofa and table, 2 chairs and it's own large TV plus a microwave, small refrigerator, and in a drawer the coffee maker/service. Perfect if travelling with kids as the bedroom has a sliding door which offers some privacy. Or if on business the table works well for plugging in your laptop (the cable connection and an outlet is well up on the wall above the table)....
Other facilities -- small pool with deck and chairs; pool towels replenished frequently...a little wooden ramp to go over to the beach -- where most of the people are... Very small beach bar (only 4/5 chairs). The pool is cold (think brochure says its heated)and the hot tub wasn't working...but area nice enough to enjoy the sunshine if you can find a chair.
Major problem -- the food service! The food isn't the best and they are still working out some kinks. The staff is also in need of additional training which we hope comes soon. Important -- if Ashley is still working there request another waitress -- very rude and snippy!! She definitely needs to be in another job where there isn't any customer contact...
Some other things -- The hotel is working on their satellite dish cause adding more channels so TV doesn't always work; Some people get cookies and some don't; Our air was fine -- cold even -- but other people in lobby complaining theirs wasn't up to par. No security personnel are visible anywhere -- don't know if this is good or bad...
But the management is trying and we hope will soon bring the property up to the Doubletree standard.
