Doubletree never again
San Diego
5 May 2014

They stole a purse..They've lost my future business

The best part about the doubletree hotel in San Diego was the view from the room. The staff was incredibly rude and had a poor attitude every time we spoke with them. I asked the front desk for a bellboy and/or cart for our luggage & she said "we don't have anyone-they're busy" and that was that. Once we got to our room I immediately called guest services for more towels & the entire time we were there they NEVER came. There were dirty dishes left out in the hallway near our room when we checked in & they were still in the same spot when we checked out. At checkout I called to the front desk for a bellboy and/or luggage cart to be sent to our room and again the front desk girl said "we don't have anyone, you have to do it yourself." When I went to the front desk to checkout, Jacob the front desk rep tried to charge me another $68 for our already paid for room and hassled me. My friend brought down our luggage on the cart and accidently left her small purse sitting by our room door, once she was in the lobby she realized this and ran back upstairs to grab it & it was gone. When we asked Jacob to ask housekeeping he told us we had to go ask them ourselves & they were on the 4th floor. When we went, not a single housekeeper claimed to speak English. We searched the hotel for over half an hour before giving up. We got a call from the hotel once we were back home, over 30 miles away, that housekeeping miraculously found the purse but wouldn't say where. $100 was taken from the purse & a set a head phones. The housekeepers claimed there was no money in the purse. How would they know that if they didn't go through the purse?!? Olivia the manager & Jacob the front desk rep just kept telling us there was nothing they could do about it and walked away from us. The entire staff was rude and unhelpful. I will never stay at this hotel again & will never recommend it!

worst hotel ever

Booked two rooms in the same name. When we got to the hotel we found out our rooms were on two different floors. It took two and a half hours to get rooms on the same floor. Rooms were half way down the hall from each other. When we checked into room 1120 our sink was plugged up. They fixed the sink only to find out the bathtub leaked. Toilet bubbled and erupted occassionly wetting the toilet seat. Parking ramps were so narrow we could barely get our van up and down. Coffee brewer was rusted and dirty where you pour the water. We had to replace the coffee maker. We ended up parking across the street paying 10 dollars a night. The worst hotel we ever stayed at. We will never stay there again.

Eat at little itay at Trattoria Fantastica.There's a 30 to 40 minute wait even if you have a reservation, but well worth it. Some of the best italian food we've ever had.

Great one night stay

This was my second time staying at a Doubletree and it has not disappointed! The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, the location was perfect and the warm cookies upon arrival were a fantastic perk! The view from our balcony wasn't bad either! Would definitely recommend to a friend.

Great Value!

We only stayed for 2 nights, but I would absolutely book this hotel again in the future. Front desk staff was extremely friendly, you're given a delicious warm cookie to welcome you upon arrival, the room was simple but very comfortable, and the location is great. On Saturdays during the summer, there is a street fair/Farmer's Market type event on the street behind the hotel, and you're just blocks away from some wonderful dining opportunities in Little Italy (I recommend breakfast at Pappalecco, myself). If you want a bit more of a walk, the Horton Plaza mall is about a mile away and there is some great shopping there. Overall, the price was right and the hotel was great, and the free shuttle to the airport on the day of our departure was the icing on the cake. I definitely recommend this hotel!

Quick stopover in San Diego

Free shuttle to airport. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location - walkable to many restaurants. Nice room, but wish they hadn't given us one overlooking the highway.

Decent accomodations for cheap price

The hotel is clearly very old, but for the price it was worth it. The parking garage is terrifying because the aisles are so narrow and you can tell hundreds of people have crashed their cars in there. They also charge you an additional $25 for parking...sucky. However if you are up for the walk it is technically walking distance to gaslamp. Also the radio didn't work, there was no air or fans, and the balcony's are disgusting. BUT if you are going to gaslamp to party and don't need to be in the room for long this is a great place! Beds were comfy!
