My husband and I stayed here for a weekend in August. We were able to book using some of our Hilton Honor points in conjunction with money- so we got a really good rate. Pros: -Location: right off the freeway. Very, very easy access to the parking garage from the freeway off ramp. This hotel is like a 5 min... More

I first want to say that the staff was very nice. However, the power going out, needing to swap out my key card 3 times, my remote control needing to be replaced 3 days in a row, and the elevators were slow and the parking was terrible. My experience was awful at the Double Tree and I will be second... More

Nice size room. Clean. No refrigerator or iron, which would have been better than a coffee pot. The view from the 14th floor was great. Glad there was a balcony. Wasn't prepared to spend a minimum of $10 in the gift shop because I used a credit card. The staff were friendly and accommodating to my needs. I've stayed at... More

We stayed because of the $125 government rate. I wish we had given more weight to the low ratings here. Place smelled musty at best (mold?). There was no fan or towel rack in the bathroom and no trashcan in the bedroom. Just a lot of annoyances that make no sense. You can do better.

Nice hotel as expected, ask for a room near the top and either facing the water or so you can watch the airplane come in over the city (kids really like this). Hotel seemed safe, parking in the ramp was not a problem. Pool on the 5th floor is small but good views, they have a bar at the pool... More

Stayed at this hotel in July 2014. * Location is great. It is right by Little Italy so wonderful restaurants and ~ 20 min walk from Convention Center/Petco Park. * Transportation. They provide a free shuttle to/from the airport. After calling from the airport, only waited ~ 10 minutes for the driver and very welcoming. Going back to the airport,... More

Clothes under bed, mold in bathroom, coffee supplies not refilled, parking garage so narrow that it gave clostraphobia and was nearly impossable to navagate. I stayed a third night somewhere else. I would not stay there again.

I guaranteed 4 nights, but a fire alarm at 10:30 pm Aug 7 had my daughter in tears in hallway. Earlier she was stuck on elevator for 15 min. To calm her I had to go to another hotel for the next 3 nights. Please consider refunding the unearned portion of my prepayment.

The rooms, lobby, food, and most of the service is certainly upper class, but one person cost me an hour getting from the airport to the hotel, with excuses. Ouch, that left a mark. Okay, I'm not counting the number of characters, and nothing else to comment on.

It was a very nice stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well taken care of. It was withing walking distance of restaurants and the harbor. Nice view from the balcony. And the warm cookie that was given to me when I checked in was delicious.
