Helpful staff, outstanding views and property and decent food.
The hotel is very nice in almost every way - great facilities, nice restaurants, decent scotch options at the bar. The air conditioning doesn't work at night! Total deal-breaker. Not only did the air conditioner stop blowing out cold air, it started blowing hot air as soon as the motion detector stopped registering us. If you are staying here, be prepared to sweat at night, or figure out some way to hack the motion detector so you can sleep!
good for young families=not teenagers. Ocean front room was actually pool front with beach in background. The adult only pool had few chairs which they allowed to be saved for hours with only a book and no one in site. the food service at the adult pool was very slow with ingredients unavailable for the day. would say they need to improve greatly on this issue. the spa pool is beautiful but we felt like we were nickel and dimed at every turn. 30 dollar valet parking and 25 dollar hotel charge with an extra 40 dollars to use adult spa pool. No turndown service given. None offered as an option. No towel racks in bathroom. No newspaper given nor offered upon check in.
We stayed for our 20 year anniversary and really enjoyed it. Luckily this website saved us about $100 on the room rate, otherwise we may not have stayted there. It is nice, but we have a hard time spending over $400 for one night's stay anywhere. It's a very relaxing place. Lots of walk ways along the oceanside, places to stop and sit and have a drink. There are several restaurants as well. Our meals were pretty good. It's definitely a place to lounge and relax. Keep in mind that although this alongside the ocean, there is no beach front to speak of for your kids to play in the water. There's a patch of sand they built but to get to the water there's about 50 of rocks that you don't want little ones to cross. Have fun! Expensive food and drinks. My husband and I had 2 glasses of wine and 3 beers and our tab was over $50.
Beautiful scenery. Incredible rooms. 5-star service!!
Dinner at mar'sel was amazing - very enjoyable. 1/2 price sushi rolls at Bashi on Sunday afternoon was a nice way to finish the weekend. Having to take the elevator up and down 1 floor to get into and out of my first floor room.
terrific activities, nice amenities and the right personal touches for young families. food was average, but wish menus would be improved a bit at the hotel restaurants.
The adult pool option. The different food options including casual dining at nelsons. The cliff side walking trails and the terranea cove! The bartender who went to the bathroom at nelsons and didn't wash his hands.
Rooms were clean 1) Beds were very hard. 2) Night office staff was borderline unfriendly 3) Parking was hard to come by
Excellent staff; courteous, responsive, helpful, professional. The water was hot, the AC cancelled any noise(I slept well all 4 nights). 3 of the four rooms we rented were recently refurbished, but my room was a bit shabby, though okay for the $. I had lawn chairs for sitting, no desk, some stained carpet.
The location was nice for what I needed and the cleaning staff delivered anything we asked for quickly and were very friendly. The manager has absolutely no customer service skills. I was charged an extra night that I did not use and she REFUSED to speak to me about the charge. I understand if I did something wrong but at least have the customer appreciation to talk to me. There was a clog in our shower from hair. Another group's shower knob freely spun so they were unable to change the temperature of their showers. I won't stay at a Ramada Inn again.
Everything was as advertised. Great location and friendly staff.
Get longer curtains.
Free breakfast, nice staff. The surrounding rooms were loud. There was no pool or gym. Cleaning wasn't done everyday.
Clean Quiet Easy check in and out No ice machine on each floor. It was hidden in a weird looking garage next to the lobby. Uncomfortable towels Limited breakfast items, should be more than just cheap bread, frozen waffles and 2 kinds of cereals The hallway smells bad There are exactly one table and 2 chairs in the office for breakfast. I didnt have anywhere to sit down. Creepy looking staff in the morning.
The bed was comfortable, check in was easy and it was accessible to shops. The toilet was a bit clogged.
WE STAYED THERE THE EVENING BEFORE A CRUISE AND LOVED IT...IT WAS BEAUTIFUL...SERVICE WAS GREAT AND WE LEFT OUR CAR THERE UNTIL WE ARRIVED AND WERE PICKED UP BY THE HOTEL VAN. IT REALLY WAS A NICE START TO A GREAT VACATION.
Room not ready an arrival. Room not cleaned the next day until after several phone calls. Noisy party on balcony next door not quieted until after phone call. Abt 130 AM.
Hotel was nice with a good restaurant. Fun place to walk around with a park close by. Great shuttle to cruise line.
We took the Super Shuttle from LAX. First stop was another hotel. We were in awe of the people getting out at this stop because the hotel was so 'rich' looking. The first stop seemed so 'tight' because the hotel was embedded in the city. We didn't know what to expect at Doubletree. Next stop was the Doubletree San Pedro. Oh my gosh, we felt so lucky! Everything was perfect. The room was clean and well appointed. The balcony was roomy and refreshing. The weather was fabulous. The hotel shuttle took up to a restaurant nearby and picked us up. The morning of our cruise, we have a wonderful buffet breakfast. I would recommend this place just because of the beautiful views. Looking out at the marina was breathtaking plus we saw our cruise ship arrive the next morning! Just try to get a room with a balcony.
If you have a boat, this is the perfect place to stay. People are nice. Service was great. Location is a bit out of the way to cruise around LA, but great if you are just staying around Long Beach.
This hotel does not transport to Carnival Cruise lines terminal in Long Beach. I was misinformed when I called Doubletree San Pedro and asked about shuttle transportation. I was told that they provided it as a complementary service but failed to tell me that this did not include Carnival Cruise Lines (which I was sailing on!) I found the service efficient but not friendly. The dining room staff was very friendly and quick to resolve a problem I had with their white rice (which was terrible!). They resolved this matter quickly. The room was comfortable but the TV needed replacing as it had a terrible picture. It's a clean and safe location but not a 5 star hotel.
We spent 4 nights at the Doubletree before going on a Panama Cruise and we enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is located in a quiet area but close walking to restaurants, etc. The surroundings are lovely and also it's very convenient to the docks for people going on a cruise. Another bonus is that the hotel supplies transporation to the docks when you ready to board the ship. All in all staying at the Doubletree was a very pleasant experience and my husband and I would highly recommend it.
The rooms were nice. The food in the restuarant was very good. The view of the marina was lovely. The staff was courtesy and helpful. The only downside is that the pool, although heated, was outside and it was not quite warm enough to utilize. The fitness facility was stocked with good equipment. I would recommend staying here.
As I sit in my run down room with no hot water for the second day in a row, I feel the need to warn any potential guests of this facility to not be swayed by the great views of the marina. That's really the only redeeming factor for this poor excuse for a Hilton property. The furniture in the rooms is shabby , dirty and in need of replacement. I do not have a desk chair, but a chair from the banquet facility. No hot water for two days and a staff that could give a flip. I stayed T this hotel last month and I had no airconditioning. I will not be coming back.
I actually stayed at the wrong place. Our cruise was leaving from Long beach instead of San Pedro, Ca. The hotel provided transportation to Long Beach. which is not their standard procedure. We enjoyed our stay at a very lovely place.
We had a very nice 1 night stay at the Double Tree in San Pedro, CA. We ate in the resturant and the food was quite tasty. It was spacious, very clean and comfortable. The front desk people were very helpful and got the room ready for us before the designated check in time, as we arrived early. I loved their cookies! 4 thumbs up out of 5!!!
In short, the hotel presents itself as an upper scale water front stay, but is in fact worn down and dirty. The rooms and buildings are showing their age, and have TERRIBLE up keep. Wost of all is the completely dishonest and apathetic staff. The front desk manager tried to at first give me a completely different room than what I had reserved and pre-paid for, then tried to give me a sub standard room. When told that I wanted the room I paid for, I was told that despite being 30 minutes past check in time, my room wasnt ready. I came back later in the evening and got a room of the type I had reserved. It was in poor repair, with exposed wires and loose electrical outlet covers, dirty bathroom, and stank of cigarette smoke despite being a non-smoking room. The next morning there was NO WATER. When I called to ask what was going on, I was essentially told 'tough luck'. I will spare you the saga of trying to deal with management and corporate. AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!
