Very nice room, comfy bed, great view of NCSU clock tower from room 606. Yummy warm chocolate chip cookies available from front desk. My only problem was that the digital key didn't work but the card key worked fine.

Poor HVAC system does not allow guest control of heat and staff admitted that there needs to be a certain number of guests complaining before heat will be turned on. Room temperature was 67 and uncomfortable for 5 hours. This is a franchise hotel and Hilton has little control over operations. I will avoid in the future.

Siobphan is awesome. Can't wait to come back to visit he front desk staff was cool. Just didn't seem as engaging as I had hoped. The banquet staff was on point. I was late to the event and they not only noticed that I had just arrived but they went out their way to make sure I had a meal.

Our housing Authority hosted a Christmas party at the Doubletree Hotel. Both hostess Chanda and Darlene were AMAZING!!! If you are looking for a great party and host that add a special touch, then the Doubletree on Hillsborough is your place for your next event.

Facility is poor and staff to fix things unresponsive. Poor HVAC system with no control over temp or airflow. Breakfast is excellent. Rooms are clean. Requested repair of shower handle and it was never addressed. Would not recommend this facility.
