I am writing to discuss my disappointment at a recent Doubletree stay while visiting the Austin area. I have never been in a hotel which did not offer complimentary coffee in the morning for their guests or a hotel where I park the car myself, in the park lot right in front of the hotel but charge 25.00 per night or there is not a newspaper to be found. The last part which is what I also found very frustrating is when I went to give my Hilton Honors number for my stay, and they say that I used a 3rd party to book this stay (Expedia) so it does not count. Hilton gives permission for Expedia to help service their customers and then punishes them if they use the service. That in my opinion is absurd. A disappointed customer.
