Would not recommend this hotel, was disappointed as a Hilton Honnors member. The hotel lobby was update and beautiful however the rooms do need a makeover. Restrooms are small and old looking as well. Would not pay $449 per night for a king bed not worth it at all

The hotel was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The bar was not my scene. Too few places to sit and people watch but fully stocked bar. I did not eat at the restaurant so I can't rate that. Cookies were available and warm and chewy. Bed was comfy and the room was nice. Parking lot was tight but not too hard to navigate. Will stay again.

If I could give half stars, this would probably get a 3.5, but since I love Hilton, I will round up to a 4. Location is great, just about 2 blocks from very cute cafes and restaurants in Little Italy as well as a stop for the Hop on Hop Off Trolley. Everyone was very friendly and we appreciated the complimentary airport shuttle. As an HHonors Diamond we were theoretically upgraded, but besides the floor (21st), I can't comment on how much better our room was. We had a partial view of the bay... Read more

This review is based on a traveler doing the San Diego Rock N Roll HALF Marathon (may have been different if I did the full). The location is perfect if the race start is still near Balboa Park. I left the hotel at 5:15AM and walked to shuttle drop off area around 5:30AM. And the hotel is maybe 5 blocks from the post-race festivities area near the water. So no need for shuttles or ubers as the walk is doable at the start and finish. That's a HUGE plus. The rooms were comfortable and had ev... Read more

This is an older property in need of some serious updating. That being said, the hotel is clean, well maintained, with a welcoming and helpful staff. This hotel is located just on the eastern edge of San Diego's Little Italy neighborhood, adjacent to the I-5 freeway. The neighborhood is mostly residential, so you will need to walk the 3-4 blocks down into Little Italy for dining options other than the hotel's in-house restaurant. Try to book a room on the south side of the building, which wi... Read more

The room next to me had a party, called several times to complain about it. Hotel wasn't to proactive to solve the situation. Then they moved the party downstairs to the pool and were even louder.

Room was pretty good, but ran out of bottled water. They had great cookies and they did allow me to have a late checkout so we could finish the marathon and then shower in the room before we left. Parking was expensive and the garage was very tight, if you have a large suv u will never make it.

A breathtaking view of the city lights, rooftop and harbor from our room. What a great place to stay for a romantic getaway. This is a good choice if you want to be close to the activities of downtown. We had a great stroll to the Little Italy area which was very vibrant and active with great restaurants and things to see at night. We will definitely consider choosing this hotel location again because it gave us a taste of what San Diego is all about.

Housekeeping was wonderful as well as the front desk staff especially Marina. We asked for towels and they were delivered in 3 minutes.

I'm usually a fan of Doubletree properties however the only thing that remotely felt like a Doubletree was the cookie. This is not the crown jewel of Doubletree hotels.

Once we checked in everything was ok. The view from our room was wonderful. Unloading and parking to check in was a problem. There is very limited parking on the street to check into the hotel.

View of the San Diego airport from our balcony. Parking is limited and the cost overnight is $25.00.

Really decent hotel. Mid class. A bit expensive for what it offered. Desk staff needs to step it up. It would be a pretty good hotel for a vacation. Also it's close to the airport. Rooms were pretty loud from the highway. Not well Soundproofed. Small balcony was a nice plus.

You can't beat the location for a quick business trip, very conveniently located just off I-5. Near Little Italy and all downtown. If you are looking for luxury this isn't the best option in San Diego. The room was clean but unremarkable. The staff was friendly. Parking was difficult and very tight even with our compact car. I would not want to attempt with a full size vehicle as the ramps are very narrow. If you are looking for functional, comfortable, and convenient without the expense of wa... Read more

The hotel was nice and clean! It was also in a great location! We were able to walk to the Gaslamp District, the marina, and Little Italy. The only issue I had was my hotel key for some reason would not work even after I was given a key holder to place them in. I ended up getting stuck on the elevator when my key again did not work. Front guest associate wasn't apologetic only huffed and blamed me...good thing I didn't have a fear of being trapped in an elevator. Pool was pretty tiny too.I would... Read more

This is an older Hilton Doubletree that is conveniently located at the edge of little Italy. In about 10 minutes you can at almost every restaurant in Little Italy. The hotel itself is average size. The top several floors are reserved for Hilton honor guests. One side of the hotel faces the pool. The other side faces the airport and 5 freeway. Each side has its share of noise. The walls are fairly thin and not the best in keeping out noise. My room faced the airport and freeway. With th... Read more

Upon arrival at the hotel I was greeted by some of the friendliest staff I have met. The check in process took longer than usual but the girl was in training so i was very patient and understanding. They also gave me a free breakfast for the wait. I got to the room and it looked like every other doubetree room i have been to but had a balcony and an amazing view of the airport runway.

Short walk from the bay front, and only a trolley ride away from all of the wonderful activities available in San Diego. Free shuttle service from the airport was a real plus. Friendly staff. Bar in the lobby came in handy quite often as a gathering place following our business meetings.

Stayed here for one week, good location that is walking distance from most downtown activities including the Gaslamp district and right next to Little Italy. Parking at the hotel will cost you $25 per day, so it's a little pricey. Service was very good, small bar and restaurant downstairs, food was good. The only downside is that it is an older hotel, you can hear the plumbing gurgle through the pipes as you are sitting in the room, AC was noisy and did not get repaired (squeaky fan), and I was...

The DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown San Diego is the perfect location. You are within walking distance to everything. The view of the bay from the hotel was spectacular. The hotel had everything you needed and the food was great. There is also a complimentary shuttle to and from the airport which was very convenient.

I have stayed at a lot of Hilton properties in different countries over the years. This is not the best by a long way. Check in took forever - not really sure what the guy was doing with his computer. I tried to purchase bottled water in the in-hotel shop and charge it to my room, but the nice lady was eating her lunch behind the counter and told me as it was a separate business I could not room charge. Room was fine - about average for Doubletree, but definitely not the best I have stayed i... Read more

I've visited plenty of hotels in my recent travels and I'm a firm believer in customer service. I was wooed and wowed by how respectful and nice the staff was to me. I'm a young college student looking character and usually get treated as such. Ivan and his coworkers were awesome. Not only did they take care of me but they also gave me tips on where to go and who to see. It was awesome. Thanks and keep up the good work.

False alarms at night were set off by unauthorized guest leaving by the back door. Front desk joking with the fire department when they arrived in response to the alarms. Also, the shuttle service to the airport was not on schedule thus risking late arrival to the airport and missing the flight. No concern shown by the hotel staff regarding either fairly serious matter. The hotel itself was very nice, location was good, and check in was welcoming.

I have traveled throughout the world and stayed at budget motels, 5-star resorts and everything in between. From the moment we checked in, the front desk people were rude and completely useless. We were supposed to be there for 4 nights, but I contacted Hilton Honors and told them we do not want to stay there and that they needed to find us another place. As if that wasn't enough, the room was not very nice...the bathroom was tiny and stained throughout. The hotel had advertised a swimming pool,... Read more

The free airport shuttle was great and the warm cookie was yummy we received when we checked in, but then it kinda went south. We just arrived after a six hour flight and were exhausted and were given a room that someone was already staying in. After going back down to the front desk we were given the room directly next door to the person we just woke up...kinda awkward. The room looked like it was from the 1980's and the traffic from the freeway was definitely noticeable. Nice free breakfast bu... Read more

If you're staying at the DoubleTree in downtown San Diego, you've probably arrive there because of the location. It's within walking distance of Little Italy and the GasLamp Quarter. It's right next to the interstate. It's near the airport and the bay. Location, location, location. You've probably also noticed it's not terribly unreasonable in the price department in comparison to other hotels in the area. If these are two key factors in your hotel decision, this may be the San Diego hotel for y... Read more

The only good thing about it-and it was very good-was the front desk staff. The rest was the worst experience all year. My room on the 11th Floor smelled like a nursing home-the cleaning solutions were overly pungent. The room was as clean as it could be but carpets, bedding and walls were stained. Mildew in bathroom. Splatter on bathroom wall. Outlets(experienced by many this stay) were so old your cords kept falling out. The bar was a joke-a few stools and two tables. The rest was overflow int... Read more

Parking was a nightmare. The rooms are outdated. Their food at the buffet was undercooked and not a good value. Although the front desk staff were amazing, it doesn't make up for what was lacking. The bar and bell desk staff were never available and very rarely where they were supposed to be. I was not impressed for the price we paid.

Employees disinterested in serving guests - don't expect a free breakfast - coffee cost $5.00 for small cup of regular coffee - water/coffee in lobby ran out early and was never re-filled. Restaurant service was very slow. This is a hotel used for conventions and the desk people did not know where any of the convention activities were being held (in their hotel !).

Felt like pulling teeth to get a resolution on a mishandled check in deposit. Overnight supervisor was no help and had to wait 20-30 mins for actual "manager" to arrive (told a 10 min wait). Manager never came out to address us even though I asked for him twice, he did fix the issue but service was handled poorly. Also multiple items in the room were requested to be fixed and one was left unaddressed... bedside lamp did not work properly. Overall poor experience.

Stayed here for work. The hotel is well located near restaurants, coffee shops, and the airport. The area around the hotel really comes alive on the weekends with lots of people coming for the food and drinks. The rooms are too noisy but I would like them to be more isolated from outside noise. The staff were helpful and they have a nice breakfast in the hotel.

This hotel offers excellent value for the price. It is a very easy walk from the hotel to the harbor area. It took me about 25 minutes on average at brisk pace. While near the freeway it is relatively quite. The biggest value of this hotel is the dining experience. It is very well done.

This hotel was nice, and if you head north and west, you get to some nice shops and restaurants in Little Italy. Head south and it's a little interesting until you get to the Gaslamp Quarter. I could see how this would be convenient for the airport, but it was a pretty tight parking ramp, I'm glad my rental was small.

The guestrooms are not quite on par with the lobby. Everything worked. The bed was very comfortable.

I love staying at this hotel when I'm in San Diego. The hotel is located right in the Little Italy section and about a 10 minute walk from the Gas Lamp district. The property is nicely maintained and the rooms are spacious and clean. Some rooms have a great view of the planes on approach to SAN. The staff always greets you with a smile and seem willing to help. I really enjoy this property and look forward to staying there again soon.
