Most everything was up to my expectations. There was a flyer in the room advertising a 10-inch pizza from the hotel restaurant. When I went down to order, I was told they did not make this size. As I did not see a mini-fridge in my room, half of the pizza was wasted. Outside of this slight disappointment in wasting...

Generally a nice older building about 1.3 mi. from the convention center. Be aware however, when a shower is running in a nearby room there is a very audible squeal that resonates through the walls - it was loud enough to wake me early in the am (around 4am when someone on my floor was showering). Tried changing floors /...

Went here for a business meeting, the hotel is somewhat out dated, the rooms need a refurbish, elevators were very slow and crowded. The hotel is in a good location as (that was about the only plus). Does offer a free hotel shuttle to airport but you have to reserve as it gets crowded. The breakfast was sub optimal, the...

The location of this hotel is in downtown San Diego close to many options for shopping and dining. With the bus service and trolley service you can get to lots of locations within a short trip., you will enjoy your stay.

We spent the night at the Doubletree after attending a friend's birthday party ion Little Italy. It's an older property but well maintained from what we could see. The location is excellent if your activities are located in Little Italy. The SD Trolley stop is only a few blocks away to go further downtown or other locations. Our room was...

Located just minutes from Little Italy and a longer walk to the Gas light but in a great location. The rooms are good size and the internet is pretty good. If back in the San Diego area I would stay here again.

Good hotel for the price. Location is close to Balboa Park and San Diego Zoo. Clean & comfortable. Room service could be improved. Coffee in lobby should be kept up. One day it was cold and full of coffee grounds. Staff could be a little more conscientious.

Be advise! the hotel requires a hard copy of the credit card to be kept on file upon check-in. This can be a potential risk for fraud. Recommend the hotel review the current policy. I requested the hotel return the original receipt upon check-out.

In a last minute decision to stay downtown for 2 nights of my vacation, I chose this location because it was the only one offered that I had enough points to book. It is right on the tip of Little Italy and my and my friend were able to enjoy a couple authentic eateries just steps away. Also, having the...
