Excellent Accommodations a Level Above The Rest
Posted Sep 27, 2016
Double Tree by Hilton Hotels are my first choice for personal and business travel. The are the best bet in a more moderate price range. This particular property was just about as good as I expected. There just a few tiny details that I found a bit disappointing: like the lamp on the left bedside night stand that didn't work; and all the outlets in the lamp bases on the nightstands and desk were very loose and barely held my phone, computer and tablet plugs. They were clearly worn. Also, upon check-in, the front desk person simply took my name and credit card, processed my check-in and said, "Enjoy your stay." No other information that you always get about breakfast, where the elevator is located and other ancillary information. Never had that happen before. Otherwise, the stay and staff were excellent.
I found this Double Tree tiniest bit "tired" (at least in the room itself) as compared to the one here in Olympia, WA, which is stunningly excellent. I stayed there recently so I was able to make a detailed comparison in my mind. The Olympia hotel is prefect in every way...they even warm the gourmet chocolate chip cookie they give you upon check-in. Tonton Falls handed me a cold one. Big difference! The Olympia desk people were also the nicest, sweetest people I've ever had a check-in with. Tinton Falls was professional, but not the most welcoming.
