“Doubletree at Pomona”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

A very nice hotel. It was clean, the staff was helpful, and it is within walking distance to stores, groceries, restaurants and about 10 blocks from the village in Pomona. It has a Trader Joe's next door as well as an Italian and a Mexican restaurant nearby. I didn't eat in the hotel restaurant, so I can't comment.

Recently renovated to Doubletree Hilton standards combined with helpful friendly staff made the stay great. Restaurant food a positive surprise. Make sure to ask for special rate for visiting Claremont Colleges

My daughter and stayed on the ground floor, courtyard view of Building 4 on a Hilton Honors floor. We were allowed to check in early (10 am) as they had the one ground floor room available in an otherwise booked up weekend. Matt at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful, offered to shuttle us to the Claremont campus, the Village, etc., gave us warm cookies (for breakfast!), and was very kind and accommodating.

The property is fine. It's a bit on the dated side, as others have commented. Our room, even though it was a "larger" king room, was tiny. I can only recall seeing smaller rooms in Europe. The room was tastefully appointed, however, free internet, and the bed was clean and comfortable. There is a coffee maker and mini fridge in the room, which was convenient. The bathroom was well appointed, but the tub/shower combo is old and I can tell it's hard to keep it mildew free. There were hairs in the desk drawer, which is always unsettling, and the bed skirt had not been ironed. We had requested via the internet extra towels and hangars and they arrived without having to ask.

We spent some time at the pool after a long day on campus, which has comfortable lounges and towels provided. The pool and hottub were clean and a nice break from all the walking.
Building 4 is in the back of the property and I'd recommend it. There was a large wedding and a reunion during our stay and we heard very little commotion. - but I'm sure the rooms nearer the event had some noise issues. The room has a small patio that looks out onto a narrow courtyard. You can access the walkways from the patio for those on the ground floor.

All in all, a convenient, quiet stay, a comfortable but small room, and a friendly reception. There's a Trader Joes a block away, and it's about a 15 minute walk to the Scripps and Harvey Mudd campus - a bit longer to Pomona and the Village. It's a little under a mile and easily walkable through the beautiful Claremont neighborhood. The hotel will shuttle you upon request if you opt not to walk.

We would definitely stay here again - the convenience is too good to pass up. We did not have trouble with parking as some have said. I'd suggest a room in Building 4 facing a courtyard so you're farthest away from the busy street. We had booked a second floor larger king, but enjoyed the ground floor's convenience too.

Green Features: I appreciated the separate baskets for recyclables and trash. Although lighting was all updated with new low wattage lights, the room was still bright and well lit, unlike some other hotels where the new bulbs cast a dingy glow. Bathroom was very well lit.

Stayed here for the first night of our road trip. We arrived at LAX in the evening and we wanted to get as far away from Los Angeles traffic as possible for the beginning of our travelling the next day. We really just wanted a comfy bed in a quiet setting and the hotel didn't disappoint. Loved the beautiful grounds and courtyard and spent a relaxing morning around the pool. Breakfast was good and the staff very friendly. The rooms could do with updating but all was clean. A good start to our trip.

Everything is great at the Double Tree in Claremont. Some might say the best thing is the chocolate chip cookies at check in. Others might say the cleanliness of the rooms. Some the comfort of the beds. We like it all... but the chocolate chip cookies are sure good.

This was a very hectic time for a Birthday/Reunion at the last minute we decided on the Double Tree for a central location. It couldn't have been a better choice or a better place to stay. The staff was amazing the atomosphere was welcoming and accomodating, it was like being with more family! We enjoyed family and friends on the property, it was wonderful. Thank you Double Tree Claremont!!

There is no soundjprooofing between rooms. He heard everything gentleman in next room said. Sinks and toilets also carry significant noise. Large space at bottom of front door. Breakfast selections were fine and fairly priced. Cookies are always outstanding

Irene,

Thank you for your review of our hotel. We're so glad you enjoy our wonderful cookies! I'd like to apologize for the noise issues that you encountered during your stay with us, however. When you come to a hotel you're expecting to get a great night's sleep and unfortunately we were not able to provide you with that. Again, I thank you for your review and we'll be sure to keep your comments in mind as we make future improvements to our hotel. I'd love to have you back to give our hotel a second chance.

Best Regards,

Shirlene Maldonado
