“Just average could use a bit of updating”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

Stayed at this hotel for business,the staff is helpful but some could not be bothered. The restaurant for breakfast was good staff was wonderful. The one thing that could be improved is the shuttle,it foes not start until 5am and many east coast flights start at 6am having the guests pay for a taxi. The other thing is the shuttles sit all day it would nice to use the shuttles to transport guests to the convention center. The rooms are a little tired, needing paint and new carpet.
I used my tea bags the first night and they were never replaced for the remaining three nights of my stay.
The neighborhood is a little on the sketchy side at night.

The drain and sewer had a venting problem that would wake you up at 3am. We were told the shuttle to the airport runs at anytime. That didn't happen. Ot only runs between 530
and 11pm so no red eye flight unless you take a cab.

The reception staff were free friendly and the rooms very clean. I attended a seminar there and the luncheon served was outstanding. The downstairs seminar room staff could have had more courtesy while working the refreshement table during our meetings though. Very loud and distracting! As for the hotels restaurant for dinner....don't do it! I was treated rudely by the host and when my mac n'cheese with soup finally showed up 1/2 hour later for take out while I waited I wasn't sure which was the soup. Soup was over salted and the mac n'cheese had no flavor in it's milky bath. So, if you stay away from Ariana you will be fine!

I've been here 5 nights and it's terrific. The location is hard to beat. Five min from Little Italy with over 20 awesome restaurants. The staff is friendly and caring. I would stay here again and again!

close to farmers market on saturday and little italy. love the comfortable beds and delicious cookies that they give out. I will look to stay at a double tree again next time i travel anywhere. You do need to pay for parking which is a bummer however some hotels don't even have enough parking for their guests, and they allow you to go in and out.

This hotel is located in a great area of downtown San Diego near Little Italy area which we totally enjoyed. Lobby is ultra modern and updated. However, the rooms were nice, but not updated like rest of hotel was so we were a little disappointed.
