DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Austin
Why We Love This Hotel

- The Texas State Capitol is a ten-minute walk away.
- A free on-demand shuttle takes guests anywhere within two miles of the hotel.
More like apartments than hotel rooms, the options at the DoubleTree Suites are all home-like and extremely spacious. Families love spreading out across several rooms, and appreciate the separate kitchens with full-sized refrigerators. The hotel is also popular with business travelers who note the ample workspace and immaculately clean facilities.
‘Suite Ride,’ a free, on-demand shuttle, brings guests anywhere within two miles of the hotel. That area encompasses the Texas State Capitol (only ten minutes on foot), Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, Blanton Museum of Art, and the University of Texas. Football fans are regular guests at the DoubleTree, because of the quick trip to campus.
Onsite, make use of the fitness or business center. An outdoor pool and whirlpool allow guests to take advantage of the Texas sunshine, while the famous Southern hospitality is evident in the treatment from staff. 15th Street Café serves all three meals, specializing in American and Southwestern food. Meals can be taken outside on the patio terrace. In-room dining is available from 6:30-11pm. Previous guests recommend this hotel for business travelers and families, though some suggest the price is too high for the lack of inclusions.
