“Our stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

The hotel overall was fair. It would have been good if not for the twenty mosquitoe bites my wife received that night in our room while sleeping. Our shower drain was clogged and there was a $15.00 parking fee to park in the hotel outside lot. This is a first for us to have such a fee.

In preparation for our vacation I read many hotel reviews online, so I was very apprehensive about what to expect at whichever hotel we decided on. To my surprise and relief, our stay at the Double Tree Hotel in Marina Del Rey, CA was very enjoyable. It was very clean throughout with a pleasant appearance and smell. The warm cookies, free lobby computer use, and free parking made the stay even more enjoyable. The shower water pressure could be stronger, but overall it was a great stay. I definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone and I plan to stay there again when I return to L.A.

Front desk staff needs to be more friendly and accomdating. Most are former Marriott Courtyard employees as this hotel has recently switched over from a Courtyard (03/2013). Optimistic improvements will come. Hopefully I'll feel more welcomed on the next vist or that next visit will be changed to another area hotel. Time for room renovations as well although I have found the beds and linens to be very comfortable and in good condition. The building structure itself is that of and older hotel and this may be the reason for some of the problems. Not an easy fix, but a more friendly/accomdating staff is.

Comfort is the operative word here - comfortable beds, comfortable surroundings, comfort in knowing your are in a secure environment, everything about this hotel was delightful. We booked the hotel because of its location to Santa Monica, but at a more reasonable rate than the Santa Monica hotels, and we ended up wishing we could have stayed longer for a mini-vacation. The pool is inviting, great gym, warm cookies and fruit, plus a refreshing cask of citrus water to quench one's thirst. Loved our stay and will go to Doubletrees when we can. Why pay the long dollar when you can get equal quality, comfort, and amenities at a more affordable price?

Hotel MDR was an extremely convenient location for our visit as we attended LMU graduation. It's in walking distance to many restaurants and some shops. But also quick cab ride if you're not in the mood to walk. Rooms were clean, safe, staff superbly friendly and accommodating. Nice movie theatre across the street. Will come back again when we visit the area.

Newly converted from Courtyard, hotel felt clean but outdated in some aspects for the DoubleTree brand. They look to be continue their conversion work, so that is a good sign. Location is OK for the Marina area, The Marriott and Hilton Garden Inn down the road is a better location for the "Marina" Lifestyle.

good news, it's a standard courtyard type hotel, clean sheets, etc. Lots of mediocre things: internet connect was TERRIBLE and inconsistent. I called the front desk and they could not care less. The food and menu in the bar was awful along with stale popcorn and snacks and terrible decorating. Very noisey room with lots of humming noises. And finally, airconditioning was that old style - you can only turn it ON and select a dial number or OFF. Very difficult to get a good nights sleep. The rooms are not sound proofed, I can heard kids right now and I write this. The location is not idea - it's a walk to the water for sure. I was not impressed although it could be worse.
