This fall we stayed at the Trader Dukes Hotel in South Burlington, Vermont. This property was formerly a DoubleTree by Hilton property. It was reflagged in mid 2018, and the ownership group has announced they will be performing a top to bottom $5 million renovation of the property. Without a doubt, this property is very tired and certainly needs a total renovation. While we were there, the restaurant, lounge, and front lobby were closed for renovation. This work has since been completed, and now all the suites, pool and fitness center are closed for renovation which is scheduled to be completed by year end. There are several conference/banquet rooms that need renovation along with all the corridors and remaining guest rooms. Quite frankly, I would hold off visiting this property until all renovations are complete.
This hotel is convenient to the downtown area, Lake Champlain and the University of Vermont. The personnel at the property were very friendly and accommodating.
