“Awesome location, but expensive parking”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The hotel is at a walking distance from Santa Monica Place Mall, Santa Monica Pier and the 3rd. Street Promenade. In a city like Los Angeles, where you must have a car to go anywhere, is very pleasant to be able to walk at night and go some place near to dine, shop, movies etc.
The pool and jacuzzi at the hotel is a plus. The only problem is the parking price: US$ 32 per day.

Very pleased to read that you enjoyed all of the amenities of Santa Monica, especially being able to walk to them.. We are one of the few hotels that offers free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel as we try to offset the expense of parking.

I have stayed there last year and the year before and I like the Hillton standards plus that Im walking distance from great attractions in Santa Monica like the Pier,the beach,Venice,The Promenade and Montana Avenue plus shopping galore.

Room Tip: Request one with view towards the Pacific on a high floor away from elevators!

My first time to LA. This was a great hotel, fab location. Could walk to the beach, shops, restaurants. Santa Monica Blvd is only 5 mins walk away. We spent July 4th here which was great. Pool and especially gym was excellent. Pool could do with some more chairs and loungers. We were stuck for chairs for a while which was a bit annoying as pool was so busy. All of the front of desk and concierge were brilliant, excellent service. Would highly recommend and looking forward to next visit!

Whether business or pleasure, the Double Tree Santa Monica is conveniently located, has excellent accommodations and a very helpful and knowledgeable staff. You can't go wrong with this facility. Located a couple of blocks from the famed Santa Monica Pier and Beaches and great shopping. I highly recommend.

We like staying in Doubletree brand hotels. they are fairly standard good quality hotels. This one in Santa Monica was a short walk to the beach, and to the 3rd street. Parking is a bit expensive, although in line with most other hotels in the area.

Good location to explore Hollywood etc and and usual facilities from a Hilton brand hotel.

The suite for 4 of us was comfortable, clean and good value for money. It had a decent sized 2 queen bedded room, a comfortable living area with a nice sofa, table and tv and a modern bathroom. There was also a small kitchen area with sink, fridge, microwave and sink.
Everywhere was very clean and well decorated.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast buffet was brilliant- one of the best we have had anywhere.
Location is great- although not on the beach, the beach is only 5-10 mins away as is the bustling 3rd street.
Overall a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Valet parking is around $30 per night. There is a relatively new multistorey car park directly oppos...
