“Nice Hotel with Everything to Offer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is a nice hotel with everything to offer. There is a great restaurant on site serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as round the clock room service. Of course it has a pool, hot tubs, office space, ect.. In addition to the on site restaurant, there is also another great Italian restaurant, as well as a dueling piano bar, that all share a parking lot with the hotel. They also have an agreement with a local recreation center offering a full gym, saunas, pools, tennis courts, ect.

The hotel staff were all incredibly nice and accommodating. Every desire was met and surpassed. I would gladly stay at this hotel again.

Hello rmcl26,

Thank you very much for such kind words of how you thought the hotel was nice and had everything to offer.

Yes our Orchard restaurant on site does serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as round the clock room service.

Our pool grounds are one of our favorite areas and yes what a great way to end the day in the hot tub.

The DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont is in a great location with many options of local eateries and of course our dueling Piano Lounge Piano Piano is a lot of fun!

I will pass on the kind words to our hotel staff on how nice and accommodating they were.

We look forward to having you stay with us again.

Warm regards,

We had a big problem upon check-in with the front desk woman. The big woman at the check-in counter was very rude and extremely unfriendly, that day was 103 F maybe the heat got to her a bit, we totally dislike her poor attitude working as a front desk lady.
At first, she can't located our reservation, then she told us we can't change room - We had booked a none smoking room with a king size bed, but we were giving a smaller double bed room, not to mention the room smells bad (we can leave the window open while running the A/C try to cool off the room while outside temp. is 103F..
We had lots of luggages but there's bellboy at this hotel to help us with our luggages.
Our room was located at the far end of the facility, it was a long walk to get there,by the time we were in our room, we were so angry and sweaty!

We dislike the color of the room - from light dirty brown to dark horror brown! The bed was so uncomfortable I can feel the springs poking my body.
There were loud ventilation noise in the bathroom which can't be fixed or turned off! One of the hotel staff told us all the room in this hotel has the same noise. Reeeeeally !!!

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for a wedding event, we hated everything in this hotel except the little restaurant. The food is not fancy but the friendly staff made this place felt adequate.

Hello Suzycutie1212,

First of all thank you for taking the time out of your day to write a review on the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont. I am very sorry to hear of the mishap that you had upon check in. This is not our standard at all and I am very surprised of hearing of the poor attitude. This will be addressed and discussed further with our front office manager so no further incidents like this occur.

All of our rooms are configured a little differently and we try to accommodate our guest to the best of their needs, our apology this was not to your liking.

We do certainly hope that you would give the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont the chance if you are ever back in our area again to really show you what we do pride ourselves on and that is outstanding customer service.

With kindest regards,

Shirlene Maldonado

Have you ever been relieved to find a great full service hotel for regular business trips to the same location? Super fast and free WiFi, clean quiet well appointed rooms, a well outfitted fitness facility... sounds good so far.... Then you come across one detail, which you ignore as you think it might be an off day. But then the same irritating problem keeps reoccurring all week and ruins the whole experience. It even becomes the joke of the regular weekly business guests who openly talk about it while dining at the adjoining Buca De Beppo in the adjoining property. Why are regular hotel guests not dining at the hotel...?

After your initial positive experience of what is a great hotel, you might encounter the hotel bar and restaurant. You will stroll in after a tough day at work hoping for a drink only to wait with five other travelers wondering why the three staff members are telling jokes behind the door. Or maybe you will walk into breakfast where three employees are "hanging out" while the shift supervisor is forced to wait all the tables by himself for four consecutive mornings. Or perhaps you will walk down at 10pm for a light snack and the waitress tells you to call room service, then when you do 3 minutes later, it's the same person on the phone taking your order.... Great hotel, but requires a massive cleanup of their food and beverage. That is a one point deduction.

The second deduction point is for showing up at 2:45pm after a 9 hour flight and 90 minute car ride from LAX and attempting to check in. I am told, "we are not allowed to check anyone in until 3pm, why don't you have a drink at the bar". I asked if rooms are available and she stated, "yes but I'm not allowed to check anyone in until 3pm". Then I went to the bar and encountered a 10 minute wait for a drink with three others who were also waiting..... Sounds like a vicious cycle because it is. I probably would have forgotten about this experience if it wasn't for the restaurant.

I think it's time for the GM to follow his regular guests and see how much food and beverage revenue he/she is losing by a poorly managed restaurant.

Dear MKristian,

It is a real shame to read your feedback on the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont Hotel that this was your experience of the Hotel. This review has been discussed with our restaurant manager as well as our management team. This is not our standard operating procedures at all and will not be tolerated.

These concerns have been addressed as The DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont will not tolerate this type of customer service, nor should our guest have this type of experience so our sincere apology.

Just to reference at this time Year to date The DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont Hotel is ranked #23 out of over 250 DoubleTree Hotels in the United States. So hopefully you can see we do not take issues like this lightly.

If I can be of further assistance or would like to discuss further I would really like the opportunity to speak with you. You can reach me at my direct # 909-445-1824.

We do hope that you do give us the chance to really show you what The DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont is truly about.

Warmest Regards,

There are not many choice of hotels in Claremont Colleges area and we chose Doubletree for its great location and reasonable room rate. However, it came to my surprise on the overall value for money that this hotel deserved the positive feedback. The lobby is spacious and the staff are friendly, but as they were always busy not many point of personal contact (only good but not GREAT yet). The room was clean, well maintained and the bed was comfortable. The wi-fi was fast. We stayed here 2 times first we got a room on a ground floor with small patio opened to the garden consequently there was a big bug in our bathtub. Our next stay we got the room on the 3rd floor all was in good condition. The pool area was well looked after. The garden and the ground around the building was nice. Overall I like this hotel for its comfortable and well maintained environment, as well as its convenient location near the college.

What should one report? You're in CA and you get a hotel room for just over $120 per night. Reason to be happy. Sometimes. In our case, not so sure. First off, the experience of check-in was very unpleasant to say at least. The front desk clerk admitted that their reservation system was at fault, but she was unable to fix it. 2nd, the rooms are dark and very dated. The bathroom was equipped with some kind of a noisy draft fan that ran continuously, without the possibility to be shut down, not even by hotel maintenance staff. During the day, garden maint. personnel used their gas powered blowers for hours, adding more noise and dust to the scene.
The upsides ? Good question. The staff in the restaurant are very friendly, and the property itself would offer a nice setting, were it not for the noise that lingers around everywhere.

Dear Mike D,

I am sorry to hear that you did not have a very pleasant experience here with the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont. These details will be discussed with our management team of your mishaps as this is not the normal for our service as you can see by most of our comments on Trip advisor.
These concerns are not acceptable within our hotel policies and procedures so again these will be addressed with our management.
As for the noise concerns that you heard sometimes things like this are out of our control but we do have a no noise policy in place. So if there is a continued complaint by a guest we do make a phone call to the room making the noise and if it is continued they are asked to leave the property.
Thank you for the nice comments on the staff of the restaurant, this will be forwarded onto the team.
We do hope you give the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont another chance to really share our outstanding customer service and our attention to details that we do pride ourselves on.
Kindest regards,
Shirlene Maldonado
