Great Birthday Weekend

Stayed at the DoubleTree Hotel in Bristol CT this past weekend to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The staff was extremely customer service oriented and the amenities were wonderful. Friday night they were serving a small plate menu and drinks in the open air courtyard while a band played. They also have a terrific fitness center and salt water pool. Everyone had a great time!

Great business hotel

Very friendly reception, room was excellent, Sports bar nice - might expect to see sports stars since it's practically next door to ESPN (but didn't this trip at least) - didn't get a chance to try the restaurant but the menu looked quite tempting.

Spectacularly good business hotel

Lovely decor, welcoming staff in all departments, everything looks brand new and is sparkling clean. Gym full of high-quality equipment. Buffet breakfast is all the usual suspects (scrambled eggs, bacon, potato, sausage, juice) as well as yogurt/ fruit etc and really well done, also the people working there are really attentive and pleasant. Only criticism is the food at the bar is not up to the quality of the rest of the hotel.

One night stay- very good overall

I booked based on the reviews and location. The outside and lobby of the hotel looks clean, modern, and well cared for. I requested early check-in and arrived at 12:30 expecting it to be too early, but they were able to accomodate, which was fantastic as I had a wedding to be at by 3PM. We got a warm chocolate chip cookie, our room keys, and off we went. The first elevator we tried wouldn't move, so we tried another and were on our way to the sixth floor King with upgraded amenities. We had Crabtree & Evelyn soaps, Fiji bottled water, a bath robe, and slippers. The bed looked comfortable with 5 pillows spread across the headboard, the white linens were clean, and the bed was made tight. The bathroom was spotless, very well lit, a large mirror and vanity, and above average size. The downside: the shower curtain was too small to accomodate the curved shower rod, so it was difficult to keep all the water in the shower/tub. We went to get a burger at the aports bar on premise and it was fantastic! 1/2lb burger cooked properly on a toasted brioche roll, very crispy fries (mine were truffle and parmesan seasoned#, a nice crispy dill pickle, fresh beefsteak tomato slices, and a friendly waitress / bartender. The next morning, we decided to try breakfast after our excellent burgers- that was a bad idea. My wife and I both got the $16 breakfast buffet. The 4 hot items #eggs, bacon, sausage, and red potatoes# were served in Le Creuset dutch ovens, which are very unwieldy for a buffet setup, and ,did not allow the heat from the heatlamps to keep the food warm. The eggs, sausage, and bacon were luke warm, I was fairly certain they were about 100 degrees, which is a huge danger in foodservice. I mentioned it to the waitress and she delivered the message to the kitchen. The waitress brought the french toast we both ordered as an option with the buffet #french toast, pancakes, and oatmeal were options available but made to order from the kitchen, not on the buffet line). Surprisingly, the french toast was made with standard slices of sandwich bread. The french toast was dusted with cinnamon and served with real maple syrup, but tasted like overcooked egg with a soggy interior. I forced my way through one triangle and left the rest. My wife had the same luck with her order. Fortunately she ordered a bowl of oatmeal and brown sugar, which was good- good quality oats, not quick oats. I resorted to a bowl of granola with some peanuts, almonds, and dried cranberries. The waitress returned and dropped off our check and said "they removed one buffet from your check" and walked away. I opened the check and saw the bill had an $8 continental buffet charge and a $16 buffet charge. I'm okay paying for what I eat; if you're billing me for a continental breakfast, just tell me that, don't tell me one has been removed. The breakfast was thoroughly disappointing- I don't know that I would give it a second chance. The hotel as a whole is very nice and has great staff. I would most likely stay here again, even though I have family in the area.

Great Location

The hotel was very clean inside. The pool was way in back of hotel,dirty and high grass, broken fence and much to far for toddlers to get to bath room. Great location for Canobie park. The worst part was rude staff who ignored you in breakfast room. Not enough food out, dirty counters, no one refilling food items. If you were in rush to get some where you wouldn't of made it The desk person refused to give me comment card. h However the location and large clean room hard the most comfortable bed i have sleep on in a hotel. So we will return just be prepared a little more for wait at breakfast and be sure kids use bathroom before you take them to pool
