We enjoyed our stay at the DoubleTree in San Diego. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. We needed a hotel for one night during a layover for our flights. The hotel is very close to the airport. I especially appreciated the shuttle to and from the airport.

My wife and I had an amazing vacation in San Diego. The location of the Hotel and the personnel were fantastic. So many things to do within walking distance from the Hotel. The Hotel facilities were very nice to include the Restaurant and the Bar, computer available to customers, and fresh coffee and cold water was also very good. Highly... More

This is a great Hotel with excellent service and perfectly located near the airport, downtown San Diego and Little Italy. Lobby and Rooms are very clean and nice to look at. Great shuttle (free) to and from the airport.

It is shocking to me that Hilton would associate itself with this embarrassment. When we called for our shuttle, we were left stranded at the airport for almost an hour in spite of being promised every 15 minutes that it was on its way. After finally surrendering and taking a cab to the hotel, I was told by the manager,... More

Service was horrible. They seem terribly understaffed. Glasses left in the hallway and by the elevators and never picked up. The bar was unattended and dirty. Waited forever for a wait staff and after 10 minutes I gave up and walked down the street for food. We rented a 1 bedroom suite for 4 people. The hide-a-bed wasn't good enough... More

Great Location ..convenient to Gas Light although farther then hotel claims. Average room at best. We got view of I-5 and right adjacent to airport landing. Perfect if you like watching planes land. Value priced

The hotel's parking ramp is super narrow. The room was sub par. It looked great in photos but it wasn't clean. The service was super slow. I will never go back to this hotel again. Also the staff were not friendly.

I stayed on the top floor with two twin beds. The room was nice, with a gorgeous view of many of the cities landmarks. It is right by the freeway, so if you're not used to city sleeping - I am - it may be a little noisy for you. I made plenty of use of the hotel's swimming pool... More

Same review as my stay across the way at the Four Points - The hotel is older and needs some TLC. Not comparable to the brand globally for quality of property or level of service. Rooms were big, clean, and everything worked. It is not really that conveniently located but everything was walkable for me, others might not think so.... More
