I stayed at the Doubletree after agonising about other options; there are so many seemingly great hotels in San Diego. While it is not the most modern or contemporary hotel (and I generally prefer a contemporary style), the "can do" attitude of its staff made me feel like a winner. The service was superb from the moment I entered the... More

I stayed at the Doubletree at downtown San Diego for a week on a business trip. As a loyal Doubletree customer, I didn't hesitate at all to make my reservation with them. I've honestly never been disappointed in a Doubletree, let alone THIS disappointed. Here are a few observations about this particular hotel: 1. Terrible customer service. I arrived at... More

This property needs a major upgrade! Out dated carpets in hallways and rooms, very old furniture and bathrooms are unacceptable for 2015! Across the street is a Sheraton property that has MUCH better value.

Came to celebrate a birthday and family recommended this hotel, it was great place to stay. All of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Try the breakfast buffet, the choices were plentiful. I would stay here again.

As soon as you walk through the door the friendliness starts. Staff is energized and spring loaded to help. Very polite and easy to talk to. Rooms are spotless. Breakfast buffet is outstanding and you can't beat the location.

Every room has a nice view and many with an Ocean view.. The only downfall is the Elevators are so very. slow. The food is great both in the banquet room and at the breakfast buffets. I was told the cookies were awesome, I would have no idea, we were not offered any.

I usually like to stay at Doubletrees when I can because I am usually always happy with them. This one is downtown and in a good location just a half mile away from the cruise port which was the reason we were in town, so that was a plus. The lobby and bar area were so small and right on... More

This was out first stay at this hotel and it was the perfect location! We had decided not to rent a car, and we were pleased to see that we were able to walk or ride the bus or train to get everywhere we wanted to go. There was an art fair going on down the street when we arrived,... More
