No one who works here seems to care if the guests are taken care of or not. The hardest worker was the waiter in the restaurant and unfortunately the food was horrible. The maid service was non-existant at times and poor at others. Offered turn-down service and mints at bedtime...never got it. Toilets overflowing over an hour to get help...tv... More

My room was comfortable and included a balcony, which I loved. Don't plan on timely service if you eat at the restaurant but the facility, overall, was good and there are plenty of places to eat near by.

Came down with my girlfriend and roommate for a night. We all enjoyed the balcony and view, free wifi, and lovely room. Overnight parking was $25. Seemed excessive. Lobby restaurant was great. Service from Alberto was outstanding. Our meal was the highlight of our stay.

Spent a week here for work and would say that everything was just "o.k.". That's not to say there was anything glaringly wrong or right, everything was retry much just average. The location is close to the Little Italy neighborhood of San Diego and in pretty close proximity to my new favorite place "Extraordinary Desserts". Now, this place was definitely... More

This Double Tree has easy access to and from Interstate 5. Lots of great restaurants in the area and just two blocks from Little Italy section of San Diego. Nice healthy walk to the Gaslight District. Great view of planes landing at the airport on the north side of the hotel. Air traffic is non existent during sleeping hours.

Convenient location. Can walk to the midway in minutes. Nice lobby. Good breakfast, though ours was included in our rate. Nice pool, jacuzzi and bar on 5th floor where the bartender poured my drink so strong that I had the spins from just one drink! Rooms fairly large and clean. Had to take a room on the freeway side. Noise... More

First, the positives: the staff at this hotel is really friendly and very helpful. They are always available, bend over backwards to help you out, and always have an answer. We got great recommendations for restaurants and bars in the area from the staff. They were prompt and courteous in the restaurant, too. Now, the averages (no real negatives here):... More

Very well run Doubletree. Easy access to Little Italy, Central Downtown and airport. Nice breakfast. Of course, tasty cookies. :) Great front desk team. Fun pool. Easy freeway access if you are driving.

Check-in took 2 hours because they kept placing us in rooms that had not been cleaned yet. We finally were given a clean room on the 4th try. The staff was not accommodating or apologetic. At one point they did not believe that we were checked in to another dirty room so we had them walk to the room with... More

During the initial check-in I was not recognized as a HH Diamond member, nor, was I offered a room upgrade once I conveyed my status to the attention of the front-desk attendant. I was sternly told there were no room upgrades available, which appeared odd considering this was an off-peak period. Upon checking into our room we noticed the size... More
