“great restaurant staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

i stayed at this hotel 2 weeks ago the rooms were decent but i got moved to a handicap room without even being notified which was kind of a bummer the front desk should have made me aware of this change also there was bugs in the bathroom, but other then that we had bfast the both days we were there and it was great! the waiter Carlos i believe was so helpful he definitely knows customer service he greeted me with such a big smile and was always so kind!

WE travel to San Diego about once a year as our children are in a research project with SDSU (see FASD101.com). We generally don;t get to stay in such a fancy place but we got a great deal online and boy were we excited!

My husband and our three children stayed at this hotel It was clean, quiet, comfortable and plush. The daily cookies were such a fun treat and yummy. they actually gave us more cookies than once a day. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. I wish someone would have told me about the free Starbucks coffee served daily downstairs. I found it out the last day we were there. The daily parking fee of $16 was high. I wish they would lower it or not charge for parking. Other than that, this hotel was a wonderful treat for our family.
thanks Double Tree for letting us have such a nice experience.

Great location, nice rooms, friendly staff. Just two complaints...the signage is not good from Hotel Circle. Make sure you are going in the correct entrance, not down the dead end maintenance driveway. Also, they CLOSE THE ICE MACHINES DOWN AT 9:00pm! So lame for a hotel of this size! We were both thirsty and needed to ice recent injuries that were exacerbated by all the San Diego walking. I've never seen a hotel with that rule, and they didn't inform us until AFTER I had gone from floor to floor trying to find an ice machine that was working!

The hotel staff was extremely accommodating for all of my needs when I was there to host a business seminar for 3 days in June. Everyone was helpful and made my experience an enjoyable and smooth process.

Both of us feel special when we come to Double Tree! The accomodations are always what we expect. My wife is a clean freak and she rates this an A+. Good for me! The other amenities include a excersize room and towels at the pool. Staff is well trained and are helpful in directing you to wherever you want to go in or out of the hotel.

Very nice fresh baked chocolate chip cookies .. starting the review with this because this was the first thing that you get as you check in

We had done our booking online .. and it was very very smooth to check in .. although we had to wait just a bit because another guest had the reception .. still, the still-warm cookies made up for it

The room was good .. clean & nice, with the usual amenities

The incidentals like a breakfast voucher etc were missing .. although this hotel does have free wireless internet

The swimming pool & heated pool were nice .. as was the poolside

The in-hotel dining option .. the Panini Grill & Bar .. was quite a horror .. far too salty and far too sour buffalo wings, an inept salad, a limp pizza .. all of which were quite costly

In all .. quite a good option to stay .. BUT EAT ELSEWHERE

Room Tip: High floor, poolside .. keep balcony door closed when not needed to avoid freeway noise

Really thought that the Doubletree was a very good choice for my business trip to San Diego. The location was excellent and the accommodations very good. It was fairly priced for San Diego. I would stay here again.
