Doubletree by Hilton Torrance - South Bay
Ranked #3 of 20 Hotels in Torrance
Reviewed October 5, 2011

I am a Hilton gold customer and I could not believe the room I got. The clothes must hang in the closet sideways and only 4 can hide on each side of closet. Bathroom had no counter space for toiletries and was so small you had to dry off after a shower in the room. Actual room was very small with king bed. Never could get the air right in the room. It was either stuff or registered 60 degrees on the temperature gauge. Curtains could not be closed all the way to block out light. Had to plug hair dryer INTO lamp base which made me nervous - thought it might catch on fire. Lobby of hotel was great. Meeting room where we conducted business in the Penthouse was fabulous. Had some problem with staff misplacing boxes we had fed exed to hotel. Finally got two hours after meeting started.

Wondeful place for the stars that it have, nice rooms I stayed in one bedroom at the court yard and then I extend my stay to the tower its really wondeful with a nice view. There is no mini bar in side the rooms, that is not important. The laundery you need to do it with your self and need coins for that , in the room there is a iron and the table.

The pool nice and the restorant nice.

Room Tip: If you want a connecting room go for the rooms in the tower. Internet free wifi inside the room

My 3 other girl friends and I stayed at this hotel last week for 3 nights for our reunion. We had a rather small standard room with 2 double beds, flat screen TV, an armoire/closet which housed the coffeemaker and tiny ref, ironing board. There was a set of drawers beside the armoire, a desk with swivel chair, and a chair beside the windows. Rate was a reasonable $119 for that period of stay and for the room size.

We did not take advantage of the wonderful patio/garden area beside the pool which had trees and fountains and tables/chairs to relax in. The lobby was larger and a little grander than other 3-star hotels. The front desk/concierge were helpful and polite. Many restaurants surround the hotel. Overall good value for the rate we got.

We flew in for a wedding and stayed here for 3 nights. Location was ok - probably better suited for business travellers. Room was clean and breakfast was excellent - we didn't get the buffet - ordered off the menu and had a more than generous, tasty and excellent breakfast that cost half as much. Computers and internet access available for free. No parking fee. Close to alot of local restuarants, and the beaches...and ten miles from LA Airport. Staff were friendly and helpful. Dissapointed in the concierge service. Steered us wrong on a Hollywood tour - we ended up disembarking and getting a cab back to the hotel. Not paying $130 for a airport shuttle van tour. In their defense, it was not their first choice. Worked for what we were there for - a wedding, at a wedding package price. Decent value and decent accomodations.l

Some of the rooms have a small balcony overlooking the pool area. It is an older building but nicely maintained, newly painted and decorated very nicely. Mini fridge and coffee service in room. Free parking at this hotel which is great as you would need a car in California. Close to major shopping malls and beaches.

Room Tip: This is a Hilton property so if you have a gold card you will be upgrated to a better room. Ask for...

Stayed here for a week while on a business trip to Torrance, CA. The hotel is well maintained, lives up to the standards you'd expect of a Hilton anywhere else. I had a ground floor room by the courtyard and it was quite interesting.. Has a nice pool and a hot tub in the middle of the courtyard which is very nice to relax in after a hard day's work. The hotel is very close to the open air mall (Del Amo) and is literally surrounded by restaurants of all kind. There's even a Benihana's just across the street! If you are a visitor and not familiar with the area, make sure you have a Sat Nav.. the surrounding place is full of twists and turns and you can get lost in no time!

Room Tip: Get a room by the courtyard

Had a lovely time when we stayed there over the weekend. The rooms were clean and the location was really nice. Of course you need a car to get around. We had vouchers for free buffet breakfast at Andre's which was offered more than your typical continental breakfast. I thought miso soup and salmon was an odd thing to have at a breakfast buffet but they cater to a lot of flight crew from Singapore airlines and other asian airlines. Hotel was only 15 or so mins from LAX. Short drive to South Bay beaches. Fridge and coffee maker in room but no microwave.
