“Pleasant Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is a great hotel with a subtle elegance and a friendly, helpful staff in a great location. We went for the larger king room and felt very spoiled for 3 nights at an average of $135 per night. Their weekend rates were actually cheaper than their weekday rates. Its conveniently located right off of the 210 so easy access on and off the freeway. Besides the hotel's restaurant, you will find a Claimjumper, Red Lobster and Outback in less than a 5 minute walk. The area feels very safe for walking. There's lots of off-street parking. We stayed here hoping for easy access to Santa Anita Racetrack and shopping and we were not disappointed. We were very impressed with our extra large, modern suite-like room. It was clean and comfortable. We only had one problem and it was quickly sorted out by the staff. I wish we'd had time to use the pool but we did enjoy some time in the pool area.

We booked this hotel at the last minute, literally the night before check in so I didn't have time to do my usual Trip Advisor checks. We got a good rate, it was Hilton so we thought we were pretty safe. On arrival all looked good, it was easy to find, they have a large free car park and we were given a warm cookie on check in. It was late afternoon and we were the only ones waiting to check in, the process was quick and painless and the woman on reception was pleasant enough.
Our room had a view of the pool, which we didn't use, but was very quiet (but it may be different in the summer) which was great. It was very spacious with two comfortable beds, desk, TV and phone. The bathroom was a good size, but there was no tub, just a shower (which was fine for us) and towels and toiletries were provided (beware of the fancy looking bottles of water they place in the bathroom, they are not free!!). It all looked super clean and tidy although the lighting in the room was so poor it would have been easy for them to cut corners with the cleaning as we wouldn't be able to see. Having now read some of the other reviews about the lighting, I have to admit that if i'd read these prior to staying here I wouldn't have taken it very seriously but it's actually really frustrating that even with all the lights on and curtains open at 11am in the morning you can still barely see enough to do your make-up in the mirror. Wasn't so much of an issue for my boyfriend but us girls need a bit of light for our hair and make-up.
Lighting aside I did like this hotel and was very happy with it especially given the last minute booking, but because we didn't spend that much time here we weren't really able to put the amenities and service to the test. We also didn't eat here, but the cookie was good!

Room Tip: Ask them which rooms get the best light.

We really like our stay in the Double Tree Monrovia. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Since we got there late and left early, they were nice enough to place us close to the elevators. We got wonderful warm cookies upon arrival and even though we came in super late, getting extra towels and soaps were not an issue. The rooms were sleek and modern and our students really love the wall mounted flat screen TV. Would definitely stay here again if we are ever in the area.

Room Tip: Paying extra for the larger space is worth the fee.

The upper floors are for executive stay and the rooms are perfect not very roomy but workable.
Rooms are clean and the restroom was clean. I would not book for children as this room was to small but I think they have larger rooms for families that book a reservation.

The breakfast place in the hotel was better than most "comped" just for asking!!!! The warm cooky was worth the trip....

Room Tip: If traveling as acouple book executive upper levels of the hotel I think floors 7-10 and your good...

After an afternoon at Santa Anita racetrack, then some drinks and dining, we decided to stay locally rather than drive home that night. After booking on-line a good price and even better with AAA discount.
Hotel appears to have be remodeled and was very clean and modern, Room included wall mounted TV, modern lighting, free wi-fi, microwave and fridge...
Close to freeway and numerous restaurants or bars. Would stay there again...

The room was very clean and comfortable. We also ordered something from the restaurant and took it to-go - the food was good. Would definitely stay here again The locatoin is very close to the freeway and was not too far from Azusa Pacific University which is where we were headed.

Room Tip: The rooms were very modern and had been recently updated. I did not experience a noise problem.
