This was first time here since it was a Holiday Inn. So, a very long time. From check in to check out, staff was very professional. Excellent room and breakfast. Only downside, I was there only about 12 hours due to late arrival. In addition to business stays, I would recommend to families due to the unique pool which is...

It was nicely decorated with all of the modern amenities - WiFi, convenient...

We had a 2 room suite and loved it. Nice restaurant with great food. Speedy room service with reasonable prices. A little off the beaten path and no left turn out of the parking lot. The mattress on the sofa bed was in need of replacement.

You would expect more from the Doubletree… The stay was just in passing… So it was OK… But everybody likes to made to feel special… This was not the case. I would have been OK for $79 plus tax… But it was nearly 150...elevator was full of cigarette smoke coming from the bar… First room AC in operable… Second room...

Decent place, but not the best hotel I've ever been to. First room had a horrible smell, but the staff was very nice and relocated us to an upgraded room and gave us free meals for our stay. Location was not the best, but better than Huntsville.

We attended our Annual Yacht Club's Commodores Ball at the Double Tree Hotel by Hilton and had a wonderful time. The staff was excellent and professional, the food was great.

Just don't. Loud area that is on the river and next to a major bridge that is in middle of heavy industry. Hard to sleep unless you like Jake Brakes waking you up all night. Pool and Riverfront was out selling point, pool is indoor/outdoor swim thru so it's still chilly. AC or heat in too. Not good for Alabama...

Business travel - found this to be a very nice and accommodating location. Very good food on site with exceptionally nice people. Will definitely be back next time my travels bring me to the area. We be equally nice for a quiet weekend getaway.
