“Would stay here again”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

For a family with 2 active boys, this was an all-around win! We loved the warm-cookie greeting. Our room was clean and well appointed. The kids and my husband loved the indoor pool and hot tub to work out the travel energy and relax. We opted for the additional breakfast buffet, which was located in the restaurant looking out on the marina. The buffet had yummy somethings for all our appetites. We would definitely stay at this location again.

Whenever I'm in Berkeley, I stay at the DoubleTree. The facility itself is modern, clean and very comfortable. The service is excellent - what you would expect from a Hilton hotel - I asked for an extra blanket and within minutes a warm, fluffy blanket was delivered. At check-in you are greeted with warm cookies. The location is fantastic! There are walking/running trails right outside the door. The views of San Francisco and the Bay are unbeatable. There is ample (free) parking and free wifi. There is a fitness center and 2 pools. 4th Street shopping is very close by - don't miss breakfast at Betty's Diner and coffee/tea at Peet's. This place feels like an oasis in the middle of a very bustling area, and the easy access to the freeway makes it convenient to get anywhere. It took me under 20 minutes to get to the Embarcadero in SF for our Alcatraz tour and under 20 minutes to get up into the Berkeley hills to see an epic sunset.
The management really cares about the customer. When I was filling out a survey after our stay, I mentioned that the rollaway bed mattress didn't seem very comfortable and I recieved an email from the manager taking the charge off my bill. I was already a loyal customer, but now even more than ever.

Room Tip: if you can upgrade to a "premium" room, it's worth it - views of the bay and larger ro...

We stayed for a week while visiting family at Christmas. It's clean, has a great bar, wonderful views at breakfast. We ended up in a third story room after asking to move from the first floor. If it was only one night the first floor would have been fine, but we were near the exit and heard the door all night long. The third floor has vaulted ceilings so it feels much more spacious -and the balcony is great.
This is a great location -especially an easy jump onto the highway for the Bay Bridge, or even going across the freeway to Fourth Street shops and restaurants. Would stay here again!

Dear Jakerbreaker,

Thank you for your recent comments and review on Trip Advisor -

I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit during the Christmas Holiday!

I personally enjoy the rooms on the third floor myself with the vaulted ceilings. In addition, I think we have one of the best views in our restaurant/lounge area (best viewing time is when the sun is setting and you can only see the outlines of the sailboats).

Again, thank you for your feedback - we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

We have been coming here for years as our children attended CAL Berkeley. We love the location as it is by the marina and yet close enough to campus. We have always gotten great service from the staff and the rooms are spacious and clean specially since they have all been refurbished.

Room Tip: Upper floors are preferable or overlooking the marina...

Stayed for one night. Like any other double tree so you know exactly what you re getting. Pool is small. For one night it's a good stay. Breakfast isn't so great but needs are comfortable and rooms are clean. Staff were very helpful and friendly. No problems but definitely missing that extra something.

Dear Jessica K,

Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor -

I am glad you were able to use the pool facilitiies; however am not sure if you were aware that we had two pools on property. The one right off the lobby is a bit smaller and allows all ages; however we do have a second pool located on property for 18+ which is larger and can be used as a lap pool (located near the fitness center).

Again, thank you for the feedback!

Always clean and efficient, good value for the money. No parking problems. Good security. Great breakfasts for start of active day with grandchildren. Easy use of business center for printing boarding passes. Use of pool and fitness center. Watching marina activity a bonus. So good, we scheduled our wedding anniversary dinner there.

Stayed here since they had a bayview restaurant inside and we did not want to have to run all over the Bay Area looking for parking to get lunch on New Year's Eve. The restaurant was closed for a wedding which was fine, since they were serving at the QuarterDeck Bar and it was not busy, but it still took 1 and a half hours to order two lunches and pay. Kind of defeated the purposes of choosing to eat at the hotel.
