Well, let me get the negatives out of the way first. I am in healthcare and the first thing I noticed in the hallways was that they smelled like a nursing home. It is not like that in the rooms or lobby ares, but the hallways to your rooms are like that. It is tolerable since my room and common areas smelled fine. The next thing is the $19.00 per day charge for parking. Lastly, as a Diamond Hilton Honors member you still only get a free continental breakfast. Staying at the Hilton Garden Inn or Embassy Suites in the Hilton family get you a cooked to order breakfast. I think the Doubletree should try to do better with this.
Now for the positives. The room s are very large. They have all the normal amenities that you expect in your room (no mini refrig though). A small balcony associated with every room. It is not really big enough to sit out on, however, you can at least step outside and get a breath of fresh air without going downstairs. The bed was excellent. I slept really well all 4 nights. Also, very quite. No issue with noise from the hall or outside. Beautifully appointed swimming area, pool and jacuzzi. Finally, the Fitness Room had a great selection of equipment and enough of all of it. This was much better than what I am accustom in most hotels.
The hotel is very close to the San Jose airport. I didn't find a lot of restaurants in the immediate area, other than the ones at the hotel. They seemed pretty expensive.
I felt very safe at this hotel. Overall the hotel was very nice and you would be fine staying here.
