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.

This is not the normal Hilton doubletree that you come to expect. Old and filthy. Holes in walls. Dirty at entrance. Dirty throughout. Bed was comfortable. Poor drainage of sinks. If you want a pool..july and they were pumping it out!

Cheap hotel with a fancy but dirty lobby/elevators. Broken equipment in rooms. No respect for top tier Hilton Honors status. If you’re going to spend top dollar on a hotel room then spend your money at a Marriott. They always treat me well and never had a problem with their rooms.

We spent Saturday night in room 305. The bathtub is so clogged that within two or three minutes of turning on the shower there were several inches of standing water. How do you clean a tub like that? Impossible. The sink was clogged as well and the bathroom simply wasn’t clean. When we checked in two out of three of the elevators were not working.… Read more
We spent Saturday night in room 305. The bathtub is so clogged that within two or three minutes of turning on the shower there were several inches of standing water. How do you clean a tub like that? Impossible. The sink was clogged as well and the bathroom simply wasn’t clean. When we checked in two out of three of the elevators were not working. I called the front desk a bit before 9 pm to see if there were towels down by the pool and was told that the pool closes at 9 pm so we didn’t swim. There were still kids in it shortly before 10 though so I guess they don’t really enforce the rule? In the morning when we got closer to the pool we realized that it was green and murky, so I’m glad we didn’t swim in it. We have stayed at many, many Hilton properties over the years. This hotel is not well maintained. We have stayed at the Homewood Suites in Lafayette in the past (we would have stayed there this trip but it was full). Definitely book Homewood over this property if you have that option. Read less
