Our Visit to Hilton DoubleTree Austin!
Recently our family took a trip to Austin, Texas. One of my favorite states to visit! Everyone was excited about this trip though, because we were staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton while in Austin! The DoubleTree is located in northern Austin, pretty close to the University. It is in a very quiet area though, so don't let the idea of a University nearby scare you.
Checking in was a very smooth process, and we were welcomed very cordially by the front desk staff. At check-in, we were presented with some cookies. Not just cookies either-4 chocolate chip cookies that were still warm! Nice and fresh, and very much enjoyed by the family.
Our room was on the 6th floor, which the children really enjoyed. (Why do heights always impress children?). This made looking out the window one of their favorite activities during our visit!
The room itself was very nice, and the decor was perfect. I know it's not the most important aspect of a hotel, but I much prefer staying somewhere with a tasteful decor, rather than the bold, clashing colors I've seen at a few places! The dark wood was lightened by a brighter carpet and bedspreads. In addition to the beds, our room had a chair, dresser, and a nice L-shaped desk. One side of this was perfect for computer work, and the other side holds a coffee maker. This is a little more of a gourmet coffee machine, rather than the standard piece you find in most hotel rooms. As coffee is one of my weaknesses, having this in the room was very nice!
In the bathroom, we found a selection of shampoo, soap and lotion. The bathroom was very spacious, with plenty of counter space as well. (Very important for getting ready in the morning, especially with several girls :)
As you can see by the pictures, the DoubleTree by Hilton in Austin, TX is a great place to stay. Whether you're traveling for business or pleasure, vacationing with the family, attending a conference, or visiting someone at the local University, the DoubleTree is the perfect place to stay! If you're not planning a visit to Austin anytime soon though, don't worry. DoubleTree by Hilton has locations all over the US, so reserve your room today!
