Historical Traveller Reviews of Doubletree Guest Suites Hotel

Loved this hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
I only stayed in this hotel for one night. It was great. The living room was seperate from the bedroom. Which was nice because I had just had lasik eye surgery and I could close the door from my mom and sister (who accompanied me) so that I could rest, and they watched tv in the livingroom. We had 2 very comfortable beautiful double beds. Very nice sheets. It had a small round table that I ate my dinner. It was great. I would totally stay there again.

Good Business Hotel

from Sketchdnky
As a business traveler who logs 100+ nights a yar I rate this hotel above average. Usual clean hotels expected with this hotel chain. Above average front desk service. Beautiful facilities (Lobby, Pool, Resturaunt.) Great views of the causeway. Excellent sunset. Would stay here again.

Ummmmmm...okay...I guess?

from RueStPeter718
I'm really conflicted with regard to the Doubletree Guest Suites Tampa Bay. I suppose what is giving rise to those mixed feelings is the wonderful view and serene pool area. Because of these two things, I'd consider going back.

Check in was not overly friendly or attentive. Not what I've come to expect as an Hhonors upper tier member, or as a guest of any hotel, frankly. Arrived around 12:30 on a Friday and was told by the young lady (J) that, nope, nothing ready. It may have well been the case, but it was the 'Too bad, so sad, see ya', wouldn't wanna be ya' attitude that was so out of character for Hilton properties. No 'Can Do' attitude here as Doubletree professes. No biggie; we simply left and came back a couple of hours later. Other staff we encountered seemed friendly.

While they've tried to update, I had a general 'ick' feeling when I was in the room. Maybe it was just more of a 'blah' feeling--I can't quite put my finger on it. Housekeeping seemed to have done a fine job in the room. But the fridge was positively archaic, as were the bi-fold style closet doors which separated the bedroom from the LR area. The big stain on the BR ceiling from the blowing (or the intake?) of the AC was more than obvious, and things like this are easy to take care of. Oh, yeah--the chocolate or BBQ sauce smeared throughout the in-room dining menu prompted us to head out for dinner instead. At least I'm praying it was chocolate or BBQ sauce...

Having said all of this, the view was indeed beautiful, and the pool area was very relaxing with above par pool towels available and a fabulous ocean breeze. Basically, the beach minus the sand. As a gal who grew up in FL, I can live without the sand! This alone MIGHT make me tolerate the other things if I were given an offer I couldn't refuse. We paid $99 for the night with a AAA discount. I wouldn't pay anything higher, and suspect I'd have to find an even better deal to return.

Had a Wonderful Stay

from redshoetraveler
We had a wonderful stay at the Doubletree Guest Suites in Tampa! The staff was very courteous and helpful in accomodating every request we had. Our room was very comfortable, quiet, and large. We had a king suite and were very happy with both the size of the bedroom and living room area. Nice view of the water. Quick drive to the airport. Nice linens and comfortable pillows. It would be nice to have solid doors between the two rooms, but we didn't have any other complaints. Loved our stay!

STAY AWAY FROM THE ELEVATORS

from mkreed
During a recent trip for a marathon, we stayed at the Doubletree, Rocky Point. After a brief dinner at Landry's (yummy), we retired to our room for an early evening. We were placed in a room which was right next to the elevator shaft. I was not too concerned having stayed in similar rooms previously and typically there is a ton of insulation to reduce the sound. This Doubletree has NO INSULATION and not only did we here the Whoosh Whoosh of the elevator the entire night but we were also party to conversations of those on the elevator. What a treat. I think collectively we got about 3 hours of sleep. I am scarred for life and will not seek out Doubletree again.

Very nice stay

from Barneslover
My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night (January 7, 2006) after attending the Bucs/Skins game in Tampa. We won a Priceline bid of $85 for the hotel and we were just happy that we had a place to stay after the game.

We usually stay in 4 or 5 star hotels, and seeing as this was a 3 star hotel we weren't expecting much. However, we really enjoyed our short stay. Parking was a breeze, check-in was quick and efficient and our room far suprassed our needs. The hotel is an all-suite facility and we had more than enough space to move around in. Everything was clean and we felt very comfortable in our surroundings. The bed was extremely comfortable and we both slept soundly.

The clock on the nightstand was illuminted in a way that made it very easy to tell the time, however, it wasn't an irritating neon glow that would normally bother me while trying to sleep away from home. The blinds really kept the morning sun out of our room. When we did open the blinds in the morning, we were treated to an excellent view of the water and the water fowl inhabiting the area. Although the pool was drained and going through a rehab, we didn't mind because the temperature was somewhere in the 40s.

We left our breakfast room service order on the door after we checked in (around 10:30 pm) and our breakfast arrived hot and tasty at the requested hour the following morning.

We enjoyed our very short stay and will certainly consider staying here again in the future. The room had ample space and is in a great location for anyone who is visiting the Tampa area. We hope to stay there in the future when we go to see the Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. :)

Loved the Doubletree Suites

from Trvlr37
We stayed at the Doubletree Suites one night for a pre-cruise. At check-in I showed my Hilton Honors card and we got upgraded to a room with a bay view. Our room was awesome and very large - we even had a TV in the bathroom! Certain areas were a little worn, but what made this hotel was the staff. We used the free shuttle from the airport and also went to the shopping center. When our driver learned we didn't get the Pepsi we wanted, he drove us to a supermarket. Our driver later took a group of 6 of us to the Bahama Breeze for dinner and picked us up when we called. The hotel also arranged for 4 of us to go the port the next day (for a fee). The hotel staff really went out of their way for us and we would highly recommend to anyone. It was well worth the $$. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Good hotel for the price

from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel was good for the price ($70/night on priceline). It's centrally located, and the most basic room - which is what we got on priceline - was a suite with mini-kitchen, dining room, living room, and enclosed bedroom and bath. It's slightly run down and could use some cleaning and redecorating but overall, I would recommend it.

Nice hotel

from MSTR
Nice big rooms. Small beach and a good restaurant on the opposite street. The location is pretty far from the downtown and there is no decent public transport.

Terrible, tired old hotel

from Charpature
This is my very first time posting a review in ANY travel website, but we just returned from this hotel and I had to post something.

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for an overnight stay in Tampa to visit friends. The picture on the website looked promising, was reminiscent of the Contemporary in Disney. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful.

The room itself was....tremendously lacking. I was impressed with the size, and the seperate living/bedroom areas. However, the dining room table was absolutely filthy, with crumbs in the space between the top of the table and the sides and what looked like ketchup stains. The carpets looked very dirty. The TV in the bathroom (yes, there is a very small b/w tv by the toilet in the bathroom) did not receive picture - but also looked like it had not been cleaned in years. Not something you want to see in an appliance near a toilet. The gauzy lining of the drapes by the computer desk had what looked like to be a few old blood stains. I slept in the bed wondering when was the last time the mattress pad had been cleaned. The decor itself was very out-dated.

I am not a very picky person at all, but I was grossed out to even touch the remotes. The high speed internet service was $6.95/day. I would have been happier at the Holiday Inn Express.

Yuck!

Top Local Tips for Tampa

hit the beaches but tampa is not the place to do that - yhou have to drive to clearwater. if you're not there in summer, disney is 1 1/4 hour away (universal a bit further)

Know the neighborhoods of Tampa Tampa and the Clearwater Beach area have awesome things to do and great hotels but check out Trip Advisor before booking a hotel. You want to know the neighborhood you are picking to stay in. Traffic is also a consideration so make sure your location to stay matches your itinerary.

Try Bern's Bern's Steakhouse has a national reputation for excellence. Based on our experience, it is well-deserved. The service is outstanding and the wine selection is virtually without peer. The steak is prepared to perfection (Of course, there are other alternatives), and soup, salad, baked potato, onion rings and home-grown vegetables are included with your entree. The price is surprisingly reasonable. As first-time visitors, we were offered a tour of the kitchen and wine cellar, about five minutes. Make reservations for the dessert room. Many tasty options, though pricey. Again, knowledgeable servers and a funky atmosphere make the dessert area a good way to wrap up a memorable evening of fine dining.
