Double Tree is always good, but because this hotel had been a renovated building of an older, different brand, it offered some positive special surprises in the common areas, and especially good food at the restaurant. Staff was also very good.

I was very impressed with this hotel because of the staff and how clean and new everything looked. I was there with the women's soccer team, with about 30 people in our group. Since it is a large group, I was impressed with how organized they were and how they had our rooms ready right when we arrived. When I...

The hotel was clean and the room was clean upon arrival, as one would expect from a DoubleTree. I was there for a business trip for three nights. The first two nights there was a group of people on my floor who were partying in one or two of the rooms all evening and into the morning both nights. The...

Upon check in no A/C, noisy bus load of teenagers in courtyard. Much better value when it was the Cabot Lodge. We got breakfast and free drinks at happy hour. Not worth $205.00. Had to tell front desk and maintenance of our problems

We stayed at this Hotel many times before it was bought by the DoubleTree. I was given a Shands Hospital Discount Rate of $79.00. I assumed it would be that again.

Horrible customer service. Home 2 Suites or Hilton Garden Inn have much better service and are very close, I would stay there over this property. The rooms were not terrible but also not terribly clean either....Worst Hilton property I've been too though!

We spent two nights here and really loved the room. It was very clean and the bed was unbelievably comfortable. What struck us as odd was that there was no continental free breakfast. Out mornings were quite rushed both days, so we didn't try the restaurant, which we would have liked. But, for the price, would a free breakfast been...

Loved the bed and would have loved the room if the coffee area had been clean and restocked. Also never received room service breakfast. I told the front desk and they had nothing to say. No apology. It was weird.
