I stayed at the Doubletree in Del Mar for two nights during a business trip in October.
-Rooms. Clean and well appointed. Bed was comfortable and double blinds sealed out all light from the adjacent parking lot. Nice, spacious bathroom.
-Bar/Restaurant. Despite alternatives within driving distance, we ended up back at the Doubletree bar both nights of our visit. The food is good and the multiple large TV's indoors and gas fireplace tables on the patio make it an appealing spot to hang out and enjoy some drinks. Our waiters and bartenders were friendly and made us feel at home.
-Location. The Doubletree was very close to to our client site and convenient to Route 5, so getting to and from the airport was easy. A car is required to get to the beach, or shopping and dining.
-Lack of free internet in rooms. This is just inexcusable and a big reason why I dinged the hotel on value. Both the wired and wi-fi options in the room are $10/day.
-Elevator outage. The Doubletree has two elevators, but one was out of service for the three days we stayed. This meant LONG waits for the one operating elevator and overcrowding, particularly in the morning. At five stories, the property really needs both elevators operational and I'm hopeful that service was restored following our departure.
