Booked this room thru the Doubletree website two months in advance. Upon check-out I was actually charged $10.00 less than I was originally quoted. Pros: Relatively safe area, older hotel but very clean, good-sized room (1020), quiet, right off the freeway, downtown, 5 mins from airport, free cookies (lol). Cons: Some might complain about the air traffic noise but it... More

after traveling for work in and out of town for months....DoubleTree by Hilton downtown on Front St. was a welcoming stay. Certain staff members went above and beyond to assist in making our stay the best ever. I even came back to stay several other times since my first stay. The breakfast staff was amazing )Thanks Alberto! You are amazing!... More

I booked a room at this hotel for a weekend in San Diego and absolutely loved it! Our room was on the Hilton Floor overlooking the pool and city and part of the harbor - gorgeous views. We loved this. The rooms are typical for Hilton, clean and efficient. We were able to park before checking in since we arrived... More

The hotel is downtown, just a few blocks from Little Italy and a bit of a farther walk to the business location I needed to be in, as well as the Gaslamp Quarter. But I enjoyed the walks, so the location was just fine. My hotel room was clean and the bed was comfortable. My only criticism is that the... More

We stayed one night on the way to Hawaii. When we arrived there was a party bus parked outside and lots of noisy young people. That was fine until we got to our room. There was a party going on next to our room at 11 pm. We just wanted to sleep. Called front desk and they sent someone up... More

I have been a Diamond member for several years now, and i can say this was a real let down for the Hilton property. I will say the breakfast is very good and restaurant staff is friendly. Now the front desk should all be retrained or let go. I came in late night(10:30) and the front desk was indifferent to... More

the overall look and feel of the facility was great it was just the rough patch we hit checking in having to wait an extra 45 minutes before we could go up to our room and having our food not prepared the way we asked 2x in a row just ruined my valentines day

I would avoid this hotel. The check in service is horrible. The manager does not know how to treat guests and lies about the over booking. I also saw a water bug in the lobby on the wall. I will never return to this hotel. I never had a problem before with a Hilton or Doubletree and I'm a HHonors... More

On 2/8 and 2/9/15 I stayed at the Doubletree Inn in downtown San Diego. I reserved my room several nights before my arrival, informing the property I would be arriving late and asking for a room at the highest floor, my usual request. As a Hilton Diamond member I believed that such a simple request would be easily accommodated. When... More

This Double Tree is perfectly located for walking to the Midway Museum and to great restaurants in Little Italy. The rooms are clean, especially the carpet. The staff is friendly and very helpful. They have a nice Happy Hour in their lounge and the bartender, Michael, was a lot of fun. Their breakfast buffet was good and your eggs were... More
