During the summer months, most Del Mar/La Jolla area hotels raise their prices and I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel room. I chose to stay at the Doubletree because they had a great room promotion, only $95/night if you prepaid your room in full. I'm glad I didn't pay their regular rate which would be about twice as...

During a family visit to SD area I found a good rate on this hotel. The well maintained room was excellent but the staff was even more amazing. They went way out of their way to help make our stay pleasant with endless supply of cookies, apples and advice. The pool area is a resort area in itself.

Not really the greatest place to stay for a golf vacation-the place was always having some sort of conference. Was kinda funny though-went to their restaurant Sunday night for dinner and the next morning for breakfast, when there was no one there really (lull in the conference schedule), and was just standing around waiting to be seated both times.

I am staying at the Doubletree Hotel San Diego/Del Mar on business and am happy with both the service I have received as well as my room.

Del mar is jewel of a location. So close to Torrey Pines gorgeous beach. This hotel was great - with a wonderful pool, plenty of parking, and a couch in the room.

We've stayed at this Doubletree several times and it's clearly one of the best options in the Del Mar/Solana Beach area. Staff is courteous and the pool/patio area is spacious and well maintained. Love the fire pits and the movie by the pool for the kids on weekends. Also, kudos for free parking, which isn't the case across the street... More

My wife and I have stayed here several times on business, it's the closest hotel to our corporate headquarters. The rooms are small but well appointed and the hotel is nice.
