This is my second time staying at this hotel, I love the rooms that look downtown, you get the view, but not all the noise. The location is close to little italy for dinner, but if you want more cuisine choices, it is quite the walk to get to the true downtown. The location also makes getting on the highway...

Breakfast to expensive and the Internet cuts in and out and when it does work it's very slow. Hotel is very outdated and pricy for what it is. I personally have stayed at almost any brand of hotel and this is not up to Hilton standards at all.

Have you ever walked into a Doubletree , Courtyard or other franchise template hotel and thought "where am I"? More specifically, one wonders has the face of the organization changed? New concept or theme? That is this location- other than the cookie folks-stay away and try another San Diego venue. My list of concerns/complaints went unanswered despite multiple calls/e-mails to...

I didn't rest well here. The air conditioner jarred the room like a shotgun blast about every 15 minutes. Thin walls and neighborly snoring. Dirty entrance. Worn finishes. Got it cheap but at a high price of no rest.

The hotel runs well although none of the rooms seem to have much of a view: it is either the freeway or the airport. The location is ideal for Little Italy. Parking is fairly priced and a cheaper alternative is provided. The breakfast buffet is excellent. The bar has limited craft beer selections.

Very nice hotel within easy walking distance to Little Italy and Gaslamp district. I even walked from the airport to the DoubleTree. And upon departure after a four-day stay, I walked from the DoubleTree back to the airport. It's about a 2 mile walk and takes 50 minutes as you walk by sailboats along the paseo around the Bay. The...

Pros: Great hitel, very clean, very helpful and friendly staff. Rich breakfast, friendly staff again. Beautiful view all the way around. Cons: Parking is challenging due to the narrow ramps and tight turning space.

Was not satisfied with our room as a Hilton honors member expected so much more..the staff did try to accommodate us as best as possible. Hotel location very close to little Italy a plus. Parking $25 a day! That sucked & it was a very tight squeeze trying to park.

A bit above average, but good value for the price. Location is good for the office district of San Diego and they have a shuttle to and from the airport. Elevators need to be updated, slow and not all working at the same time. Hotel Staff was excellent and accommodating. Gift shop attendant somewhat indifferent.

The San Diego downtown DoubleTree Hotel is very attractive and the rooms are spotless. The check-in staff was warm and friendly. I was dissatisfied with the housekeeper's attitude. I gave her my tip in person. She placed the money down, gave a lukewarm "thanks" then looked away. The waiters in the restaurant spent a lot of time filling out paperwork...
