Does not seem like you are close to the airport and freeway when you are at the pool / restaurant area. Hotel was clean and well-designed. Staff was friendly and helpful. Excellent value at only $99/night when I went. Parking was free. There is a small casino in the lower level which was really great because blackjack was around $2 (1000 C) minimum per hand which I love to play because if I lose it's not that much. And I broke even after about an hour ;-) Casino staff was nice and helpful too... Read more

The location, near the airport, is great. There are a few walkable restaurants, bars, and markets which is a definite plus. The on-site amenities are really nice as well. but the room just felt empty. It was large but not in a useable way. I'd say one entire quadrant of the room was completely empty, no seating, no storage. It made the room feel a bit tenuous and unfinished. That aside the place is quite nice. There's a restaurant & bar on site, as well as a casino. The service was great!

We chose this hotel for the tail end of our stay because it was close to the airport. Walking in, we were impressed. It looks like a beautiful hotel and its in a beautiful area. But, the longer we were there, the more we realized it wasn't really the best. The bathrooms were outdated and felt old, and the door leading to the balcony was anything but sound proof. All of the balconies over look the pool, so if you have loud guests staying up till 2 am (which we did experience the first night than... Read more

The Doubletree is a great hotel if you are on an extended business trip. If you are staying over a weekend there's a great travel desk that provides tours of the volcanos and other fun and interesting parts of Costa Rica. The hotel also provides free shuttles to and from most of the local office parks which is great for your travel budget. Use that $ and go downtown and find a good local restaurant.

I often stay at Hilton chain hotels: despite appearances, it was moldy and musty. The Spanish style decor was gorgeous and I loved that the flora/ fauna was labeled. I had easy access to the pool as well from the first floor room. The restaurant had a small menu for dinner, but the breakfast buffet was delicious. It was easy to get transportation to the airport. For some reason, I was denied hotel points, not sure why?

We had a group of 15 stay here for 3 nights. The majority of the hotel is open air which is suprisingly cool. Not very many bugs biting at night, but would definitely bring bug spray. The pool was huge and very nice, however we never used it. The casino is small, but we got them to open a table of black jack for us. We were winning so they changed dealers 4 times in 30 minutes. It was entertaining to say the least. The rooms are clean and have tile floor. Beds were comfortable and bathroom as ... Read more

Stayed here for business (very close to many companies and the airport) but felt like a vacation. The hotel is built in a Spanish style - 2 stories with rooms all around an open area where the pool and dining room is. Not the boring American chain style some of the other hotel in town are like. The service is excellent - always with a smile. Breakfast is fantastic. Only small issue is that the bathroom (at least in my room) needs a little refurbishing/cleaning (mainly the tub).

We spent our last night here before flying home in the morning. Bottled water in the shop was outrageously expensive as was dinner in their restaurant. We had a king room. The room was clean and comfortable. It had tile floors and one lounge chair (but only one). We did not use the pool as the evening was cool, but it looked nice. We were originally given a room with two beds and when we asked to switch, the staff was friendly and accommodating. We left before breakfast.

The room was great, large, high ceilings, good aircon.

Stayed here for 4 nights. In my opinion, it's the best hotel in San Jose, hands down. Even my family staying at the Best Western Irazu were Jealous and wished they were staying where I was at. The Doubletree has an enormous pool with a big whirlpool and big kiddie pool, plus a swim-up bar. Even though the swim up bar was closed and an empty space, the employees let me and other visitors I met use it. We brought down our own liquor, music and we had a pool party going. Plus, what was so cool, the... Read more

This property is not suitable for a handicapped individual. The room is unsafe since the floor is very slippery. There is a small hold bar in the bathroom. The bathroom floor is polished ceramic tile. The room does not meet ADA guidelines although the property is owned and operated by a US-based company.

Our flight back to the US was cancelled due to a volcanic eruption, so we were forced to find a hotel for the night. We chose this hotel because it was the only one we knew of having stayed there 10 years prior. Although basically clean, the room was dated/worn and very musty and mildewy. The windows were nailed shut (possibly because we were on the ground floor) so there was no way to get fresh air in. Also, the room was freezing and the thermostat did nothing despite changing it to the "he... Read more

Our flight back to the states was cancelled due to a volcanic eruption, so we were forced to find a hotel for the night close to the airport. We had stayed at this hotel years ago and because I wasn't familiar with anything else in the area and had no wifi to look, I chose to stay here again. First off, the room, while basically clean, was extremely musty and mildewy. The windows were nailed shut so we couldn't open them to air out the room.

The hotel is beautiful for being so close to the airport. I loved the layout of the hotel and the privacy of the pool. My family of 5 stayed in one room with 2 beds and a roll away. Very spacious room even with the bed. Clean and lots of closet space. The Fitness center was great! Lots of great food options within walking distance, Pizza, Sushi, Sports Bar, Italian.

Rooms are large with windows on two sides for good cross ventilation, though the AC was powerful enough. Water pressure was good and never ran out of hot. Staff very friendly and accommodating, though they often tried to upsell you on things like their travel service instead of the much cheaper red taxis. Lobby and walkways to rooms are totally open air, but bugs were not a problem. In-house restaurant was decent, buffet pricing was high, but they worked with me every time to make it cheaper...

The hotel is clean but old and showing its age. The volcano erupted while I was there and we had a heavy ash fall on the area which covered everything in the common areas including the pool. The pool was never cleaned while I was there (stayed for 5 days past the mess) and looked really bad thus no one used it. The rest of the areas were cleaned the by the next day. All the food and gifts in the gift shop are very expensive (4 t-shirts and a magnet over $100 American) so be prepared.

If you plan to work at your room the internet doesn't work take that into consideration. As business is ok, as tourist not the best place for Costa Rica it is to far from the beach or any county attraction. Traffic is horrible in this area. There is a very small casino :(.

The rooms are very good and breakfast is one of the best I've had. They have a huge and I mean superb breakfast selection. What really sets it apart is all the great dining just a block away along with a grocery store. It's 10-15 min away from the Intel behlen campus. Personally I think it's much better than the Marriott and so much cheaper. Free breakfast, free Wi fi, so many food options within walking distance and a great local bar called the times.
