“Ideal location to explore”
Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

We stayed as family 4 nights and found the room comfortable and of a good size. Staff friendly and the room service gentleman particularly worthy of mention, so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. This was a good location to explore Santa Monica , the boulevard and street musicians are extremely impressive. There is also a great choice of restaurants in the vicinity . This location is also good for buses to Hollywood and other parts of LA.

Another first for my husband and I when we arrived in Santa Monica. We found the hotel easily but were disappointed that it wasn't a little bit closer to the beach.

The room was spacious and comfortable and the staff were very friendly. We found the valet parking staff to be extremely helpful and very pleasant also.

We had one evening meal in the main restaurant but my husband ordered pizza, which was definately out of a box. We were not charged for this when we complained about it.

The breakfast menu was adequate but after a couple of days, we decided to purchase take-out breakfast from their coffee shop.

The only downside we found, if you are not aware of at the time of booking, was that the valet parking charge of $28 per day.

We would probably stay here in future but it wouldn't be our first choice.

This was the fifth stay here for our family of five, and once again we were delighted with the DoubleTree.
There was more than enough space for our three teenagers to sleep, chill and watch TV (when we weren't out and about in the LA sunshine), and this time they made use of the gym and pool which they enjoyed. The rooms were quiet, spotlessly clean and regularly replenished with bottled water (much appreciated), tea, coffee and toiletries.
The always-cheerful concierges were helpful and approachable - nothing too much trouble.
The location of the DoubleTree Suites is perfect for the beach, pier and shops - just a few minutes safe walk from all the attractions.
The car valet service took good care of our car, and the drives to Disneyland and Downtown LA were hassle-free.
All communal areas were immaculate, with pleasant seating areas. We made use of the small Starbucks cafe for a light breakfast before starting the day.
We look forward to returning in the future.

Stayed as a family in a one bedroom suite. Room was spacious, quite and clean. Front desk was very courteous and efficient. Pool is large but did not feel "crisp". Fitness room is decent. If you are staying with family the one bathroom in the bedroom is limiting but was OK for one night.

The rooms are great, as well as the restaurants. Expected to be a bit closer to the beach, but it was not a bad walk. Bell services were terrible, but no complaints otherwise. I would stay there again.

We stayed here on a family holiday from 15th-23rd August. It was our first time visiting California and had a wonderful time. The hotel itself was well presented with exceptionally helpful/friendly staff, clean large suite rooms, above average dining facilities and a great gym/outside pool area. In terms of location it is perfect, within walking distance on Santa Monica Pier and most nearby tourist attractions are easily accessible. During our stay we also visited downtown LA, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Sunset Boulevard which were all booked via the Hotels concierge service. We also took a helicopter scenic flight over LA which is well worth doing. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here, it easily exceeded our expectations and would definitely reccomend.

First hotel stop-over in our family road-trip around California, and it didn't disappoint. Large suite with 2 beds, bathroom and living area with sofa and chairs. Good quality large-screen TVs in both the bedroom and living area. Drove direct from LAX, and easy to find, just off the Santa Monica Freeway (no road noise in our room on the side facing the high school). Nice welcome from the staff at the door/valet park, and quick and easy check-in (it's been said many times, but the cookies are fantastic). We stayed for 5 nights. Staff were excellent throughout, and the hotel and room were spotless. 5-10min walk to the pier, beach and 3rd St Promenade. For out-of-town visitors we also used this as our base for visits to Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood, Beverly Hills etc, all readily accessible by car from here, as you are on the freeway almost as soon as you turn right from the hotel. A lot of people on here have complained about the price of valet parking ($27?) versus local public parking. For us as a family the convenience and safety was worth the extra cost (at least it wasn't the $37+ tax our hotel in SF wanted!). A very enjoyable stay, and the best hotel we stayed in on our trip.
