“Great Value, Great Location, Pretty Good Hotel”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I stayed at the Hilton Berkeley Marina for a wedding in the Berkeley Hills. It is a good value for the money. It's not the most luxurious or plush hotel in the Bay Area, but it's a great value. Service was great. Location is ideal.. not far from Bay Bridge. You really need a car if you stay there, but the good news is that parking is FREE! (Can't say that about the Claremont!) The front desk folks were very nice. Bed was comfy. The buildings are dated, but beautiful views of the Bay. It's a good choice if you don't want to stay in San Francisco and will have a car!

Room Tip: Ask for a Bay view. You will need a car when staying here.

It is great to know you appreciated the value you found when staying with us at the DoubleTree by Hilton Berkeley Marina. Our location makes it easy to get around Berkeley and the surrounding areas and we are just a short distance from BART for points beyond. We are so glad you found our guest rooms comfortable and the service to be, as you put it, great! We hope you will visit us again.

The hotel and its location is very nice. It is in the Berkeley Marina and you can enjoy the view of the bay, the Golden Gate bridge and the city. The service was excellent at front desk. I found the service in the restaurant, the Bay Grille, ok and the food good. I would definitely come back stay.

I was in the area on business. Love the area, but the hotel was just ok to me. The marina view is great, and the restaurant and bar in the hotel was average, nice place to relax and watch the game if you don't want to go to your room. What I did not like was the location of my room being in Bldg 4, which I think has to be the building furthest from the lobby. I asked to change rooms but the hotel was booked or something. I felt a bit uncomfortable walking alone some nights to my room by myself, not unsafe, just uncomfortable, hurrying to get there. Seems like an older hotel, so the rooms were average, nothing fancy. But, the Doubletree cookies are always a plus! :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. I didn't gat that but I'm sure it would have been nice! Also try...

There are not a lot of choices of upscale hotels in Berkeley. We choose to stay here because it was a hotel chain and normally the chain hotels are up to a certain standard. This place is just ok, the rooms are clean but far from spectacular. They don't have room service but they do have a menu in the room for a pizza delivery that is open late (pizza hut?) The location is pretty good because it is on the water but you need to drive to anywhere you will be going.

Thank you for sharing your encounter with us. While we are glad you found our accommodations to meet your needs during your time in the area, it is disappointing that you were not fully impressed. Please know that we do feature in-room dining with our delicious entrees and snacks delivered directly to your guest room, but we apologize if you were not aware of this particular service. While some guests choose to drive to visit us, others make use of our complimentary shuttle service and BART to get around the area. We hope you will consider another visit.

We went to the Doubletree Marina in Berkeley, CA, for a seminar. The area is beautiful and situated by the water and the hotel room was decent. The seminar room was good and the workout room was reasonable for a hotel. After the seminar we went to the lounge for some appetizers and drinks. The waiter ("Roger") was great and the food quite good for Pub-Americana. The bartender was rather unpleasant but the managers handled it well and with great professionalism. On the whole, it was a very good stay.

When we arrived I was greated at the desk with a Happy Birthday and was treated to a free upgrade. When we arrived in the room the staff had left goodies of cookies, chocolate, water and champagne. Of course at check in you're given a melt in your mouth cookie too. The rooms are clean, beds comfy, staff is friendly, and we had a great Marina view. Perfect for watching fireworks on the 4th. Thanks to all the staff. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

I thought my stay at the double tree was fantastic. The moment we checked in we were treated well and was even give free breakfast vouchers for our whole stay. The facility itself was clean and was always prompt with room cleaning. Parking was free, staff were welcoming, everything about it was positive. Will definitely come back!
