Very Good8.0
Would Stay Again
The Valet attendant was patient and kind. We showed up early and we were able to check right in and received the much talked about delicious cookies! The hotel itself was very clean. The room was comfortable and clean to standard. Called to request sheets for the pullout couch and they delivered them right away. Quiet all night...until 9am when construction outside the window woke us all with a startle-not the hotels fault of course! Overall a pleasant experience.

The front desk left me a complimentary bottle of wine for my birthday, and I felt totally at home.

Good6.0
Iffy shuttle
Was in town with family for a few days to catch a couple of Wings games and see the new arena. First night everything went smooth with shuttle to and from the game. Second night we decided to walk over to the Hard Rock for dinner before the game and took the free shuttle from the Hard Rock down to the game. After the game we called hotel for pickup like first night but apparently it was a different driver who picks up at a different point outside the arena. After waiting a while we called hotel back and they said he had already picked up everyone from arena at that different point and was done for the night. So we had to walk all the way back to the hotel from the arena. Not good that different drivers have different pickup/drop off points, should be consistent for the hotel guests. Also shuttle only runs until 10:30 when games get done a little after 10. If you have overtime or any other delays, you’re screwed. Should run shuttles later on game nights! Other than that little hiccup, trip was very enjoyable. Hotel staff was very nice and room was plenty spacious enough for the 4 of us. The only recommendation I would have for the hotel is more lighting in the bathroom. Only had one little light in there and it was over the toilet area so it made the shower very dark.

My friends and I have stayed at Double Tree for years and have always found it to be the best hotel downtown for the price.
