Great location in the Gaslamp District Only a one night stay but this hotel is really cool and has a lot of character. Rooftop was sweet with great views, if only there was a bar up there. Luckily there's a liquor store nearby so you can throw your own soi·rée in a pinch! It's also a quick walk to countless bars and restaurants. The location ...

So close to Petco Park, I can watch the game from my floor to ceiling glass windows. Convenient location. I walked to Gaslamp Quarter and Little Italy from the hotel. Convenient location (by Uber) to Coronado, LaJolla, and the airport.

Posh and Charming Hotel Lots of atmosphere. Highly preferred to more expensive hotels that only offer a sort of "wholesale swank" feel.

Wonderful Stay at the Double Tree Great hotel. Very clean, nice amenities, beautiful view, loved the hot tub. It's not a 5 star rating because it's more of a business Hotel and not a luxury hotel. It's close to everything you need but Downtown San Diego itself isn't that exciting
