I stay at the Doubletree Del Mar mostly for business, but a few times a year I bring folks with me. The staff is always welcoming, and the rooms and grounds are very comfortable. The hotel is a bit out of the way, but the staff is always willing to take you places in the van. They have taken me shopping, into Del Mar of Dinner, or even to the beach. They drop you off and you call when you want to come back.
