“San Diego Family Trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Nice clean place, but not laundry facilities and house keeping was not up to the mark. Had to pay extra for parking. Good front desk staff - very helpful. Pool hours and thru 10:00 pm so this gives the guest time to enjoy the pool after a long day outside

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We recently travelled to the Double Tree to stay for the weekend for a soccer tournament. The parking garage is a little small to park in so if you have a big car, I'd recommend trying to park in the oversized area. The hotel had 3 elevators and one was out during our stay so it made wait times a little long at times. For having a number of soccer teams staying for the weekend, the hotel was very quiet in the evenings and there were no issues with kids misbehaving at night. The lobby was a great place to gather in the evening to visit with friends. Outside they had a fire pit, small pool and spa to relax at during the day and evening. The staff was very friendly. I didn't find hotel circle to be particularly close to anything I'd visit if I was on a family trip but it was a short drive to the beach and downtown. The rooms were very quiet and it made it easy to get a good nights rest. I'd recommend the hotel if you have business in the area.

Four of us enjoyed a 4 night stay in a double room. While it was a little small space-wise, the room was nice, clean and modern. Overall the hotel was nice in and out. There is one pool, one hot tub and a fire pit. The business center was convenient and useful. If I remember correct, we were on the 6th floor and the view from our room was great. Our entire floor was quiet. The beds were comfortable, nothing spectacular, and the pillows were extra comfy.
What was great about the hotel was its proximity to local attractions, shopping, food and the airport. Everything seemed to be within 15 minutes or less. Hated the parking garage, it is built like an obstacle course. The staff was friendly. Never saw housekeeping but never had to ask for anything, fresh linens and coffee were in our room by the time we returned each day.

An extra separate space for the little ones is attached to the room, with a door that can be closed (but seen through). This kept the adults sane during our family vacation in San Diego. The bunk beds were a special treat for the 5 and 6 year old, and there was room for the porta crib, too. A kid-size table and chairs and their own TV set made everyone happy. Nice pool area - not too big, but big enough. 2 minutes from Sea World.

The hotel is well maintained and clean. The pool is large with a nice hot tub. The staff was friendly, and helped us with a room change when necessary during our stay due to noise. The two bedroom 'suites' are not as big as expected, cramping space when filled to capacity. But overall, for short stays this was fine. The parking garage was an added bonus, be careful of the tight turns though!

Got a room with balcony (I think they all have it). Not much view though except for the pool and freeway noise. But the breeze was good. Have to drive somewhere else to eat, since I did not notice much restaurants I could walk to. Friendly staff and breakfast was good.
