Sure, the location was only minutes from the airport. Their airport shuttle is very convenient, and the drivers were quite friendly. The hotel was in a very nice neighborhood (Little Italy), with lots of people walking their dogs, and a good selection of restaurants was just a few blocks away. On Saturday morning, the street market is just around the... More

This is more of an airport hotel than downtown hotel. It does have a free airport shuttle but over a mile away from downtown or Gaslamp. We were here to see some baseball, so the walk to Petco was a bit annoying, guess should have looked at the map closely before I booked. The location is close to Little Italy,... More

A bit pricey for a solid mid-range hotel. The cleaning staff was excellent: very clean, courteous and prompt. Bed was a too soft. Weight scale in the gym was not working. No soap in the gym bathroom. Bartender rather slow. Receptionist-guy not knowing directions to airport. These are not deal-breakers, but hotel could earn so much more favorable ratings with... More

Friendly, courteous and helpful staff help this clean, comfortable and conveniently located hotel be # 1 on the list when coming to San Diego to stay. Getting a warm cookie upon arrival is a nice touch. Being able to get here easily as well as return to the airport using their shuttle at no extra cost is a wonderful value... More

We have visited San Diego a handful of times over the past 2 years to visit family. We usually chose Hilton Brand because of the consistency of quality, service, price and rewards system. This was our 2nd time at the Doubletree downtown, and contrary to other reports we would stay again. So here is our report "Looking for reasons not... More

A group of 4 people stayed in a two floor room on the 22nd floor and we thought we would have more than enough space due to the look from the pictures. When we walked in, we were surprised to see that the room was a lot smaller than shown in pictures. We made the space work but would've rathered... More

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.
