This hotel is right on the waterfront w/ lovely views. However, it's going through some upgrades. While we were there, the elevators were being used to replace all the mattresses and also working on the A/C system. They definitely need to do these upgrades, and there's not an easy way to replace mattresses. Bathrooms are small w/ only one sink,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

This hotel is situated on a sound very close to restaurants and historical areas. We found very pleasant and well appointed room equipped with amenities typical for upscale hotels. The beds were comfortable and had pillows sufficient for any type sleeper. Heat/air conditioning controls were wall mounted. Walking distances to downtown location were a short walk. We found numerous high...

Rooms did not have amenities advertised. Reservations and check-in accuracy was pitiful. Beautiful site, great location. But, poor management makes this a horrible place to stay. There was no microwave in my room, no fridge in my in-law's room, several family and guests could not check in until HOURS after check-in time. There is little to no attention paid to...

I had stayed here once in 2016 and thought I would give it another shot in 2017....mistake. This property is old and not kept to Hilton standards. The location is ideal, but that's about it.

The rooms need renovating. This room had one of the worst mattresses I have ever tried to sleep on, so sway-backed that it was not even comfortable to sit on. Even though the bathroom sink had several large cracks running across the bowl it did not appear to leak. Very low toilet - why can't hotels use standard or comfort...

I stayed for the weekend at the New Bern Doubletree. I had a very peaceful stay. The workers were there to assist us. They did an excellent job. The food was delicious. The breakfast buffet is well worth the money. Loved those gravy biscuits. The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean on arrival and towels changed each day....

Not sure where to start on this one...the architecture of the hotel is....let just say, not thoughtful. The lobby is ugly, elevators are hidden and once inside the lift there are broken floor tiles and missing wood panels on the wall, hallways with windows overlooking HVAC equipment are atrocious but I'm looking forward to a room with a view and...

Had the opportunity to visit New Bern and stayed at Doubletree with wife & our pet. Comfortable, clean rooms, well kept for a pet friendly property. Small issues with wifi and TV but not a game changer. Would like to see continental breakfast option included.

New Bern Double Tree from what I have read has a reputation of having the ability to take its guests back to the 90's, OK I get it but it was clean and very well managed and a very good price per night. The view from the little balcony was nice but you have to request chairs to sit on...

Family get together for Old Homes tour. Nice time, lovely views, but jhotel needs updating, but acceptable nonetheless. Recommend, but other options such as bed & breakfast home trump the Doubletree at this time.

Yes. We had a microwave in our room in addition to a fridge and a coffee maker. We stayed in a riverfront corner suite which is larger than the standard rooms and included free, made to order breakfast. Extremely nice accommodations. Would highly recommend staying there.

It appeared that all of the rooms had Juliette balconies. The glass doors were sliding doors, not French doors. The balcony was wide enough to stand on, but not large enough to place a chair. The room we stayed in did not have a Whirlpool tub, so I believe that is something you would need to request.

According to their website there is a $50 dep. and 50 lb weight limit. I'm not sure how strict they are with the weight limit, we have 2 Goldendoodles - 65 & 75 lbs. but didn't take them with us.

Good Morning

I would first like to say that we have an excellent restaurant on property and on Friday nights we do a Seafood Exploration that our Chef is in the restaurant preparing a special fish of the day to order and also offers steamed clams and steamed shrimp and comes will all the side fixings. Our Chef Sonny does an amazing job. But we also have several other restaurants in the downtown area that are very good.
