My wife and I are season-ticket holders for the Longhorn games and come down from Dallas for each game. We like staying up by the Arboretum as it offers an easy route back to I35 using the new Mopac toll road and the closeness to the Domain restaurants. We used to frequent the Embassy Suites across the street, but have moved over to the Doubletree the last 3 years because of the lower nightly prices, bar availability, less kids running around and a better breakfast buffet. Parking is okay. Some of the upper spots are way too tight and the lower level parking apparently had some issues with crime in the past, but we've never been affected. At least it's free.
Front desk are always very helpful and nice. I'm Hilton Diamond and we're always treated great. As a Diamond, the front desk will often give everyone in our room the full breakfast buffet coupons which we love. Much better buffet than what we used to get at the Embassy Suites including omelets to order and table service. The bar is friendly but because many of the rooms overlook the bar, we usually choose a room looking outside the hotel. Rooms are fine, pretty typical for a Doubletree. That being said, this hotel does fail two of my primary grades for a hotel, bad drainage in the sinks/bath-tubs and very loud air-conditioning that everyone who travels with me to the hotel seems to mention. It often wakes me up. I don't know how they could fix the individual air conditioning units in each of the rooms, but I sure wish they would fix the very slow draining I usually receive.
