“What a great place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The property is very clean and located near many of San Diego's various attractions. The staff is very friendly. They went the extra mile for me in making sure my stay was enjoyable. The food is great. My server, Laila Shams was so kind and helpful. She exemplifies what serving is. My glass was kept full and she made me feel at home, in a genuine caring way. I can't speak highly enough of her and how important she was in making my decision to stay again at this property, a no brainer. I stayed once before and because of her and the staff, will continue to make Double Tree Hotel circle my choice for future trips to San Diego. Keep up the great work.

The room was nice and clean even though i booked a King bed and got 2 queens instead, got to read that fine print i guess. The only issue i had with the room was the shower that turned into a swimming pool 5 seconds after i got in. The staff wasn't very nice either, kinda snobby. the best experience i had here was the waitress at the restaurant (Laila S) she was nice and attentive.

My two biggest issues here is you have to pay $18 for parking!? seriously? why? they don't even tell you until you're checking out, i wake up with this lovely receipt shoved under my door showing my card has been charged $38 for parking... 2nd, breakfast is not included, I've never seen this before. I've been to places that didn't have breakfast sure, but when i pay $120 a night somewhere i feel breakfast should be included....

This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel which is located just around the corner from Old Town in San Diego. It is very close to attractions like Old Town and Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego as well as restaurants and the main highways around San Diego. With clean, quiet rooms, a great outdoor pool area with Jacuzzi and a fireplace it is a great place to relax and unwind after a day of traveling.

This hotel is really nice. The staff here are wonderful. I am used to having it where you leave money out on the table, house keeping does not touch it till you leave. I had a slight issue with this while there but talked to someone and the issue got resolved fast. Breakfast every morning was awesome and I loved the coffee they had every morning. This is a nice hotel. The bed was as comfy as mine at home. Very nice place to stay while visiting San Diego. The bar in the restaurant was decent, don't let the look of it fool you, they can make any drink you want.

Room Tip: I think this is a non smoking hotel. Everyone had to step outside to smoke.

Double Tree by Hilton was fabulous. The manager and staff were great with our group of 70+ Wounded Warriors. They were extremely accommodating to our needs. The hotel had an update and modern look. The fire pit was a great place to hangout at in the evenings.

Room Tip: Definitely bring a swimsuit for the heated pool and hot tub.

We needed a room for Memorial Day weekend that was convenient to the two soccer fields where our granddaughter was playing in a tournament. The hotel the team had chosen was fully booked, and we're so glad! Sometimes things happen for a reason. While the Doubletree is not that easy to find (Hotel Circle is on both sides of the I-8, and the hotel's driveway is hidden by a curve), it was a very pleasant place to stay on a busy weekend. The facility is two seconds from either the eastbound or westbound freeway, five minutes from a trolley stop at Fashion Valley (so the whole San Diego line is accessible), the staff is pleasant and helpful, the Panini Grille was actually good (we had breakfast there one morning -- ordered off the menu rather than the buffet, and it was "just right"), and parking was convenient. One note about the parking -- the garage turns are very tight, so a very large vehicle may have a challenge, but there is "over size" parking behind the hotel. The walkway to the hotel from the garage isn't covered, but it's a short hop -- not a problem We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area and not looking for a hotel with a view.
