The rooms were a great size but for the price, I expected a nicer hotel. Online photos are not an accurate depiction. Pool area felt dirty with leaky ceilings and towels not replenished.

Great hotel very clean and nice staff. I prefer to stay here instead of Huntsville while working in North Alabama. These beds are the best- I sleep so well in a doubletree love the beds. I like the location and the friendliness of the staff. This is my weekly place to stay for work

First time here since the remodel we had a great stay. The beds were great very comfy. A small issue with the ice bucket upon arrival was resolved quickly. Loved the complementary warm chocolate chip cookies but some what surprised free breakfast was not included.

Being in a Hilton hotel chain, I expected better. The hotel was just renovaded, but seems like a lot of wasted space. My husband ran out to the corner for some beverages where there was a gang fight going on. We left to grab some dinner at 7 and barley anything was open. We ended up back at hotel restaurant....

Me and my husband stayed here for just a little get away for the night. Rooms were great, very clean. Bed slept great and big tv was great to watch Bama Football! Staff was very friendly. Riverview wasn't quite as I expected but it was there. Price very reasonable!

Hotel was very clean, staff were very helpful. Inside portion of the pool was not warm but we still had a great time. Suites give an added benefit with children for meals instead of eating out every meal.

We wanted a quick overnight family trip to Point Mallard in Decatur, AL. The Doubletree provided a clean, comfortable, modern hotel room with mini-fridge and microwave.
