Reviewed 4 January 2017

We stayed in a two queen suite. We had three adults and two kids. Very spacious, super nice. There were two closets, a kitchenette with a small dorm fridge, coffee pot and microwave, TV in living room and bedroom. Bathroom was a little small, but doable! Breakfast was ok. Great pool and workout room. The value was amazing!

We were traveling fromy Indiana to South Texas and stopped one night in Decatur. Nice town with lots of food choices and a great hotel. We usually try to stay close to the highway we're traveling but decided to take the detour to Decatur. So glad we did! Highly recommend Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Decatur Waterfront!

We enjoyed our stay. Check in and check out was prompt and friendly. Room was clean, light and comfortable. We felt comfortable using the pool. The only part we weren't so impressed with was the service in the restaurant for breakfast. Food was ok, but being a buffet, both days we ate there the choices had not been refilled and...

We have family in Decatur, so we visit often. We've stayed at a number of hotels here and this new DoubleTree is the best in town. Right on the river, excellent location, clean, comfortable, reasonably priced and an outstanding staff. Stay here. You'll be back.

Having family in Decatur, AL, we frequently require a hotel. This Doubletree has an excellent location right on the Tennessee River and is easy to access. The rooms were in great shape, the beds were very comfortable and the staff was professional and warm. This is a no doubter, stay here!

Worth the drive off of I-65. We decided to stay as a last minute decision while driving through Alabama. Quick check in, clean and comfortable king bedroom and big breakfast buffet to get us on the road the next morning. Southern hospitality all around.

This Doubletree seemed to be a "no brainer" when choosing a place to stay while visiting relatives. Our room on the HiltonHonors third floor was spacious and the beds comfortable. The restaurant downstairs was exceptional when compared to many other hotel eateries. However, after a noisy, sleepless night of trains passing outside our room and dealing with a defective heat...
