DoubleTree by Hilton San Diego Downtown, San Diego
The staff was incompetent. I booked a double room and they give me the keys telling me it was a double, I get upstairs and it wasn’t. The WiFi didn’t work. Someone pulled a fire alarm at midnight which I get isn’t the hotels fault but they forgot to let everyone back in who was in the back of the hotel.

Very Good8.0
Good business hotel but only if you get a deal
Nice hotel but just off beaten track in a local business area. Yes, it has balconies but no furniture on them and lots of traffic noise so they are kind of pointless. Very small pool and workout area. Front desk staff were friendly and maid service good. Not very close to restaurants (did not try in-house restaurant) or tourist areas but if can walk 25 min. Gaslamp district. and close to airport.
