Our recent visit to Santa Monica was an escape from the cold and snow of home. This property provided us with a conveniently located base from which to enjoy a long weekend in SoCal. This Doubletree is a very short drive to parking at the south end of the 3rd Street Promenade.
We had room 729, which is directly above 4th Street and was high enough to provide a southeasterly view of the ocean. We typically avoid rooms adjacent to streets but there wasn't enough noise to disrupt our sleep. Our room was nice enough. The bed was compfy and we slept well. One complaint pertains to the bathroom. It appears it doesn't have sufficient ventilation. After two warm showers each morning, it's like a sauna inside. And it takes a bit of time to cool down.
As HHonors members, we were given vouchers for free continental breakfasts each morning. Our breakfasts usually consisted of cold cereal, yogurt, fruit, muffin or croissant, and juice. We had the option for $8 to upgrade. That would have provided the opportunity to choose from made-to-order omelettes, french toast, pancakes, and bacon and sausage. The restaurant was very busy each morning. I'd suggest you get down early (NLT 0900), given them your name, and expect to wait 5-10min.
We visited the pool area just to soak in the hot-tub/whirlpool. It was surprisingly hot. We enjoyed a couple of visits just before the 10pm closure.
I looked at parking before our trip and discovered you can park directly across the street for $5.00 a day. Save a few bucks and use this parking. It is a very short walk.
Service was great. We were always greeted each time we left for the day and when we returned by all hotel employees. They seemed very eager to assist.
