“Good for Business Travel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Arrived to check in late and encountered no problems. Room was clean, and the bed was pretty comfortable for a hotel bed. Has several restarants, one of which was closed when I arrived (about 9pm on a weeknight). But, the more posh steak restarant was open, and the more casual one in the center of the lobby was open, and the latter proved to be a nice place to sit, watch TV, and catch up on email and such. Has a nice looking pool on the center. The 5-10 minute shuttle to the airport is complementary, and starts very early. All in all a nice business stay.

Stayed June 2014, traveled solo

The bathroom had a broken counter top and the door leading to toilet was FILTHY. When I wiped it with a handwipe it came off black. Housekeeping does the basics well but this hotel hasn't been deep cleaned EVER. Smells like many a party (cig smoke and booze) happened in this hotel ... Yhis giant meeting/convention hotel is so big to be overwhelming for anyone not participating in a meeting.

Well, let me get the negatives out of the way first. I am in healthcare and the first thing I noticed in the hallways was that they smelled like a nursing home. It is not like that in the rooms or lobby ares, but the hallways to your rooms are like that. It is tolerable since my room and common areas smelled fine. The next thing is the $19.00 per day charge for parking. Lastly, as a Diamond Hilton Honors member you still only get a free continental breakfast. Staying at the Hilton Garden Inn or Embassy Suites in the Hilton family get you a cooked to order breakfast. I think the Doubletree should try to do better with this.
Now for the positives. The room s are very large. They have all the normal amenities that you expect in your room (no mini refrig though). A small balcony associated with every room. It is not really big enough to sit out on, however, you can at least step outside and get a breath of fresh air without going downstairs. The bed was excellent. I slept really well all 4 nights. Also, very quite. No issue with noise from the hall or outside. Beautifully appointed swimming area, pool and jacuzzi. Finally, the Fitness Room had a great selection of equipment and enough of all of it. This was much better than what I am accustom in most hotels.
The hotel is very close to the San Jose airport. I didn't find a lot of restaurants in the immediate area, other than the ones at the hotel. They seemed pretty expensive.
I felt very safe at this hotel. Overall the hotel was very nice and you would be fine staying here.

The quality of service, food, lodging and amenities were all excellent. Travelling by car, we easily located the hotel and the parking facilities and accessibility accommodated our daily needs. Other parts of San Jose were conveniently located from the hotel and reached with a minimum of travel time. The staff was very courteous and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel.

It's not always the case with chains, but this Doubletree pretty much met the standard of any other Doubletree I've stayed in. Very large hotel, expensive (but so was every other hotel in the airport area), nice spacious room with no issues (my co-worker had an issue with hot water in his room but they switched him right away AND gave him some compensation for his troubles), and the bar downstairs had some good food and drinks. All in all, I would have zero problems staying in this hotel again.

The hotel stay was excellent with good service and cleanliness. The shuttle to the air port was immediate. The only thing were the long walk to the elevators and the hotel location was far from the downtown area.

Conveniant as it is right outside of San Jose Airport. Speciaous room yet it shows age. Well kept. Check in was superfast with welcoming 'HOT' cookie as it is Double Tree Standard. Parking fee is bit higher but one should accept this as it is airport location.
