“Good go-to option when in Claremont”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

We were visiting the Claremont Colleges during our stay. Staff were very friendly. I have no complaints about room size as we were upgraded to a larger room. The decor is dated and the bathroom was very small but the amenities are good. There is a recycling program and a Trader Joes practically next door! The Doubletree is a very good choice when visiting Claremont.

Stayed March 2013, traveled with family

The Claremont Doubletree is a very nice hotel. It will be my go-to hotel while my daughter is at Pomona College. It's very clean and quiet, nice grounds and nice interiors. We stayed 4 nights and it was splendid. Breakfast was great (a bit pricey for my appetite, though) Couldn't ask for better!!! Superb everything!

A 15-minute walk to Pomona College--and through glorious neighborhoods of 1920s and 30s California bungalows--beautiful area!!

Room Tip: Can't imagine a bad room location.

Please do keep in mind if your daughter does end up going to Pomona College we do have a family rate for all of the colleges to make sure and ask for it when making your next reservations.

Glad you found the hotel to be very clean and quiet, with nice grounds and nice interiors, and you found everything to be Superb!

Yes the 15-minute walk to the Claremont Colleges are great especially through the glorious neighborhoods with homes from the 1920s and 30s it is a beautiful area!!

This was a pretty hotel and the staff was very nice. It is also conveniently located near the Claremont colleges. Despite these positives the rooms were very small and only two double beds were an option for a family of 3 or 4. Breakfast was not included. At the price point most competitors now offer 2 queens and breakfast.

Dear Cate014,

Hello Cate and thank you for the kind feedback of how you thought that the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont is a pretty hotel and that our staff was very nice.

Yes it is very conveniently located near all of the Claremont Colleges within walking distance.

Sorry to hear that you thought that the rooms were very small and only two double beds were an option for a family of 3 or 4. We do have different room types that are larger for a family of 3-4 so please next time you are visiting the colleges again please inquire.

Breakfast is not included in most of our rates but we do have a great Bed and Breakfast special that is available on our website.

Please let us know how we can further assist when making your next reservation.

We stayed here, as many others, during a college visit to look at a couple of the colleges nearby. Its very convenient to the colleges and recommend this option. The hotel room was clean and has a nice courtyard area. I used the shared computer with printer in the lobby with no issues. The bed was comfortable. Check in was fast and convenient. We were given cookies upon our arrival. I would stay here again.

Dear Bobkatevan,

Yes there are many guests that do stay here at the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont to visit the local Claremont College nearby.

It is very convenient to the colleges and I am glad to hear that the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont was a great recommend option.

Good to hear that you found the hotel room was clean and you liked our nice courtyard area, it is very pretty as we host many weddings and social events in the Courtyard.

We just recently updated the 24 hour business center with larger screens so glad to hear it came into good use for you and there were no issues.

Also good to hear that the bed was comfortable, check in was fast and convenient and you were given our fabulous cookies upon your arrival.

Looking forward to having you return soon.

Stayed March during Spring Break to visit Claremont Colleges with our son. Check in was fine swift and courteous. Room was clean and wifi in room was good, we had a room overlooking the car park which was fine, nice balcony and little if any traffic noise!. Beds were OK but lack of pillow choice meant not a great nights sleep, a/c only just worked and like most it is VERY noisey, didnt like the sliding bathroom door, but whatever.

Biggest issue was housekeeping not once BUT twice asking to clean the room before 8.30am, the first time I said no, we would be checking out by 10am, second time I lost it and told her so, who in this world needs the room made up before 9am when you are checking out? Not good enough.

Breakfast was fine , nice lounge, courtyard even better, bit expensive and no grab and go cafe.

Overall visit was OK aside from Housekeeping, I'd stay again and likely may have to if the son gets into the Colleges, ask for the Claremont Colleges rate and get breakfast locally in the village.

Room Tip: Ask for the Claremont Colleges Rate, buy breakfast/dinner at the Trader Joe's next door and have...

Dear Englishman35,

Glad to hear that you stayed with the DoubleTree by Hilton Claremont Hotel during your Spring Break to visit the Claremont Colleges with your son.

Good to hear that check in was swift and courteous, and you found the rooms were clean and the Wi-Fi In room was good. We just recently updated our Wi-Fi so there is never a problem with our guest as this is a huge important factor within any hotel.

Our beds are by Serta and are very comfortable and if you ever need more pillows please reach out to our front desk and they will be able to assist you in getting more.

I will let our engineering department know that your a/c was noisy as this is not the normal situation for our hotel and this will be addressed.

Our housekeeping staff does try to get an early start since the hotel is very busy with a lot of rooms to be cleaned by 3pm check in time, so our apology that they disturbed your room, please always insure you have your do not disturb sign on the door so this does not happen again in any hotel.

Wishing your son success into getting accepted into Claremont Colleges, and yes always ask for the Claremont College rates.

Kind regards,

Shirlene Maldonado
