I was afraid this Doubletree by Hilton in Costa Rica would feel a bit "Americanized," but it wasn't. It was a lovely spot to rest up at both the beginning and ending of our trip. It was a bit further from San Jose than I preferred, but we took a bus one time and a taxi the next. It was so convenient to the airport. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The meals were great! We seemed to have buffet breakfasts throughout our trip. Theirs was the best... with lots of variety! And their salmon dish on the dinner menu was especially good!
