This Hilton gives the typical quality of the DOubleTree Hilton chain, but performs better than it appears on its website. For instance, its pool area is really nice and it is a reasonably large pool as compared to most Hilton pools in the larger Bay Area. It also has wings with few floors only, making it much more personal than the pictures of the large, impersonal building suggest on the website. Breakfast is good, too.
My only two concerns were related to issues that cannot be remedied: first, the hotel is right on the highway, so it is in a not-so-clean and noisy environment, whatever you do, so you do not want to plan your longer family vacations here. Nevertheless, when you have a room facing the inner courtyards (such as the pool or another one), this is not so disturbing, you do not notice this, and when the windows are shut you do not hear any noise.
Second, the hotel is going under renovation and the room we got was on a newly done floor that resulted in a very strong smell of chemicals from new finishings and glue, etc. I wish we were informed about this in advance, or that we had the option to choose a less smelly place. I am an environmental scientist and I do not trust these smells. I recommend the hotel to advice any guests who are given such rooms in areas newly refurbished that they are aware of what they get, in advance. I was just too tired to fight this at night when I arrived.
