Double Tree Holland Michigan

We ended up crashing at the Double Tree in Holland when snow forced us off the highway.  No one as going anywhere that night and many people were hitting hotels.  We quickly went online and booked a night at the Double Tree in Holland.  When we drove up a little later we were given our cookie at check-in and off to our room.

Being pretty full we were given a 4th floor room facing the highway.  No big deal, I did not hear highway noise at night and with the snow the road was pretty empty.

We had a standard two queen room.

Being more of a conference hotel they had a desk instead of a table in the room.

They had a great pool area that we wished we had been able to use.  Not planning on a stay we did not have our suits with us.  There is a hot tub and ping pong in the area.

Being Gold I had free breakfast in the am.  This was the highlight of our stay, sad but true.  The waitress was very friendly and efficient.  The french toast bake, bacon, fresh berries and potatoes were very good.

Double Tree Holland remote fail

A post shared by Stretchingittotravel (@stretchingittotravel) on

I severely dislike having the back of the tv remote dangling each time you pick it up.  And if you remove it the batteries fall out when you set if down. (Tried it and didn’t want to shlep out to the front desk for some tape in my pj’s.)  Housekeeping had to have touched the remote at some point right?

And then later when I was chilly I attempted to quickly run a bath to soak my cold feet.  The hot water pressure on the 4th floor was very low.  It took well over 20 minutes to get that tub 1/4 of the way full.  I gave up at that point and soaked my feet/ankles for a bit while reading on the edge of the tub.

Now these things really are not that big of a deal unless you are crabby from a snow storm.  Add in an idling snow plow driver at 4am right under your window and you can see how breakfast was the highlight of my stay.

Would we stay again?  I will say yes to any port in a storm, the Residence Inn was full so I ended up here.  IF we had our suits and planned to swim the night in the pool followed by a tasty breakfast again then yes.  Otherwise I think I will pass in the future.

Sometimes “Points with Cash” is a better option!

Sometimes unexpectedly you need a hotel room. It might be the snow falling at 2 inches an hour, it might be due to a lack of electricity, any other sort of fun surprise that the weather can throw at us.  I use most of my hotel points for vacation but some nights I just need a place to sleep  when getting home isn’t an option.  Last night was one of those nights, I had game plan and when I heard the road was closed near home I was able to quickly book the room online. 

Last night my closest and cheapest option ended up being the Double Tree in town.  Rack rate for two queens was $129, AAA rate was $122. Standard points redemption was 20,000 points or $.00645 a point in worth.  But Hilton also offered a Points and Cash option.  8,000 points and $40 cash.  So $89 off the bill for 8,000 points, that made the points worth $.0111.  I would much rather use only 8,000 points as I don’t have my summer travel planned out yet.  And $40 isn’t bad for a night.  Free breakfast buffet in the morning since I have Hilton Gold Status was a nice perk. But not being stuck out in a snow bank was well worth the $40.
