We stayed here this past weekend for a soccer tournament. The hotel was extremely busy (sold out), with over ten different soccer teams from all over the United States, plus two different wedding parties. The staff managed to keep it together and run everything as smoothly as could be expected. The rooms were comfortable and clean, although the carpet could... More

Diana is amazing! Her sense of humor, her ability to look at the bigger picture, and to anticipate the needs of our stay made this place the right locations for us to stay. We were in town for Surf Cup, and the Doubletree definitely knows how to host this major event. Thanks! Crossfire B97A

My wife travels for work, so when she stays within the state, we leave the kids with the grandparents, and I go with her, to her locations. Del mar is one of the prettiest locations in all of California. The beautiful coastline is so inviting I didn't want to leave. Marriott is usually my wife's preference over Hilton because the...

This hotel is very nice, the service is excellent, you really feel the worm and interest from the employees. The rooms do not have enough space for clothes, the drawers are not enought and the closet has only space for hangling. The room do not have a safe box and the do not have neither in the reception

I stay here every time I'm here on business. Service is always good, never had an issue of note. Restaurant is OK, standard hotel food, but there are so many other options nearby. Staff is always friendly and accommodating. Best of all, the cookies!

Excellent choice. Only had one bobble as we did the digital check-in and the you lady at the desk too a while to find me in the system and she kept messing up my name, but it was a great facility overall.

Appears it just recently changed hands. Granted the weekend we stayed it was full but elevator was having issues and finally one of them just gave up. Resorted to the stairs a couple of times. Very clean and very pretty. Just have one question during the night when the room is dark why is there a glow around the base... More

Repairs to the elevator have been completed; sorry if it presented you with any challenges.

My company is based here in San Diego and we have several price point hotels that we could stay in when flying in. I love this hotel - the staff has remained the same for the 3 years that I have been coming. It feels like home. Clean, happy, first rate, great food, wonderful rooms and a warm cookie. Really,...

Great place, parking is inadequate parking stalls are too small in width to accommodate your vehicle.. So get there early for parking because the parking stalls that are left over are very very small......

Stayed here overnight when everything else affordable in La Jolla was sold out. I recommend this 3-star hotel. Renovated rooms. Friendly staff. Unfortunately we didn't get to try the breakfast as it opened at 7am and we hit the road just before then. As a HHonors gold member, we got a great upgrade to a larger suite. Nice front desk...
