We booked our room on Hotwire and were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room, pool, and restaurant was. The bed was comfortable. The only thing that I was a little bothered by, was the rust in the bath tub! The parking is also 18$ night! The staff is great and friendly. Loved the tiny balconies you can walk out... More

I was satisfied with the room itself. I didn't like the tub filling with water when I took a shower. I was charged for parking when I didn't use that service. I received bites on my upper arm and buttock cheek when I woke up on Friday, 9/26/14. They didn't itch so I don't think they were bed bugs but... More

Web site described pod-based coffee maker. We purchased Keurig pods specifically for our visit and they did not work with the hotel coffee maker. We had never seen anything like that coffee maker before. The coffee it produced was lousy. Coffee in lobby was very good. Also requested coffee from room service and this was excellent in all aspects (quality,... More

Riki, We are sorry we were unable to provide you with the quality of amenities you expect from Hilton. We apologize that you were not made aware of the correct coffee maker in your room, our websites do not state we have the Keurig coffee makers as you mentioned but if you could let us know where you saw this...

We'd been travelling around for a week and a half before we arrived at the DoubleTree and were not disappointed. The staff were lovely, the food was the BEST I'd had in the entire USA - their Mediterranean salad - try it!! The best was so comfortable and the rooms were very cosy! We will be back!

It is nice to have a room for the kids that is attached to the parents without have to spending an enormous amount of money! I recommend this hotel to ease your enjoyable time with your children. We have stayed here two times and each time we have had great service.

I was very happy with cleanliness of the hotel from the lobby to my room. Our room was in great shape and beds were super comfy. All the staff were pleasent throughout our stay and were very accomodating to our requests. Wifi was excellent (not common these days) and thanks for the cookies!

Everything was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying here again. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The cookies we received at check in were AMAZING! Everything in the room was clean and tidy. All of the fixtures in the room worked. We had a great stay and there was nothing we would've changed about... More

The location was great for proximity to our event at USD. It was kind of hard to sleep due to noisy people in the hallway and then they come around at 4:30 am to lip your bill under the door and the noise of that wakes you up. I would still stay here again.

First the good stuff: Great beds and bedding. But tries to nickel/dime like a 4-star in the 3-star category (eg, wifi is not free). The bathroom is updated (sink, vanity) but the showers are still a little dated. Staff is not particularly nice, but not rude either. They changed my room when I mentioned the noise issue, but it felt... More

My family and four other family's all stayed at the Doubletree Hotel Circle in the beginning of September for 4 nights for a 60th birthday party. The rooms were ok but the customer service was not. We checked in with no problems and even upgraded our room to a family suite, the second night we went to dinner and our... More
