DoubleTree by Hilton Lafayette

Lafayette, Louisiana

The hotel

A riverside retreat in Louisiana, this hotel lies along the Vermilion Bayou, just 3 miles from downtown Lafayette – but it offers a much more refreshing swim in its outdoor pool, which sits on the riverbank overlooking the water. The pool’s spacious deck’s a perfect place to let Louisiana’s river life pass you by, but you can also experience the Southern spirit in the local brews and light bites of Club 337; in the Cajun classics served at SoLA, including po’boys, gumbo, and shrimp cocktails; and even in the warm chocolate chip cookie you’re greeted with when checking in to Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Lafayette.

Our group had a great time considering what the country was going through nationwide. The staff came through for us especially when our main event got cancelled at another location . We appreciate everything that was done to make our event special and memorable for the kids.

The hotel is quite nice, but I have never stayed in a hotel where the sound carried so easily from one room to adjacent rooms. A TV in the room next to us, turned to what I assume was a normal volume, made it impossible to sleep. Conversations from adjacent rooms could be heard easily. For this reason alone I would probably never stay at this… Read more

My room was spacious, the staff were friendly. I accidentally left my diamond earrings in the room. I contacted housekeeping who confirmed they were found. They offered to send them to me, but I opted to pick them up on my next trip to the area. BEYOND glad they were returned to me. Such honesty! Thank you!!

We stopped in after a day of traveling. The hotel was beautiful. It was quite busy that night but the staff waited on us as soon as we walked in. The cookies were nice and warm! Our room was on the 11th floor and was clean and cozy. We will stay here again.

This hotel is pretty great! It has a huge lobby, so it doesn’t ever feel crowded. It has plenty of free parking. Every staff member I dealt with is friendly, and seems to know how to be attentive to the guests with just the right frequency. Some things I really like about this hotel are the quality of the food from the SoLa restaurant. I had the Ribeye, asparagus, and mashed potatoes and that plate was cooked perfectly. On a different night, I had The House Burger and sweet potato fries, and those were cooked perfectly as well. Oh, and the hamburger patty on that burger was THICK! Yes!! One morning, I just came down and asked for a cup of coffee, and the greeter was happy to go in the back and get me a fresh cup. Super terrific staff! There are a bunch of conference rooms, so if your organization needs plenty of event space, they have it. The pool area was still closed and locked, so I couldn’t use the pool (March 3). I did use the fitness center 3 times. It is a bit on the small side, so you may have to wait for a treadmill. There are two of them. However, the fitness center was clean so that’s good. The Internet connection is doggedly slow on busy nights. I even have the Premium Internet because I am Diamond, but it was still too slow on Wednesday and Thursday night. The Manager should probably look into upping the bandwidth of the hotel with the local Internet provider. The bed mattress was not the most comfortable, so it may need to be changed (Room 512). Also, the very far downhill side of your parking lot has a plugged drain. You may want one of your staff go down and clean it out, so proper drainage can happen. I am sure the rain puddle down there gets ankle deep. Really, not many complaints here at this Doubletree. The cookies are warm and fresh! Keep whatever magic you have going on in the kitchen. I stay at many Hilton’s each year, and few have a kitchen that produces the quality of food that yours does. I also saw one of your staff cleaning up the parking lot and making his rounds to keep it looking good. This is something that a lot of hotels do not perform anymore, and it makes me sad when they don’t. This hotel has pride, and that always keeps me coming back. Thanks for the stay, and I will see you again when I come back in a few months. Read less
