Could use a little update

I stayed in this hotel the first time I ever went to San Jose in 2000. While the hotel is in good shape, it looks exactly the same in 2014. The rates are not cheap and the hotel sells out because of its location, so there's not much incentive to update the decor. I don't think I would stay here again.

Good times

Got in to San Jose without a plan so this was a spontaneous booking... This was one of the cheaper rates that came up and I booked it based on price which can be a nightmare. The hotel is fairly large and that property itself is basically resort style by an airport. You can tell it has been there a while, not a dated feel but a lived in look. Everything was clean and the room wAs huge with a balcony. I was impressed to say the least. Would definitely stay there again.

Getaway Weekend for FreeStyle Explosion II

We Stayed here for an event at the SAP Center, its close to close enough to the hotel that a cab fare is only about $18.00 each way. Rooms were clean, Bed was really comfortable, Staff was accommodating. They don't have a refrigerator which sometimes comes in handy.

General caveat

The staff was friendly and helpful, but check the actual hotel website before booking as we were not aware of a $19/day parking charge until we checked out. But they graciously took it off our bill. But knowing this in advance would have made the difference as to where we would have stayed.

Great Conference Facility

Travelled as part of a three day conference and found the facilities to be perfect for our needs. The break out rooms had padded chairs--a great benefit when lots of meeting are involved. The staff did a quick turn around on the last day in the large hall, resetting meal table to conference tables and providing two super-large wall-sized projection units. Although I ended up sitting in a large cool draft in one breakout room the first day, I was more attentive to the A/C after that with no other issues to report. Conference lunches were high quality, coffee breaks and sponsored snacks likewise. We even had a live-band in an evening reception. Everything was high quality and seamless in terms of facility use.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

$2.00 for the light rail ride train to downtown is a great deal and puts you within a short walk to multiple fun activities, museums, or theaters. No parking, no cabs. just pay attention to which side of the street you're on so you're headed in the right direction.

Doubletree Review

We stayed in the hotel due to a weekend soccer tournament nearby. The hotel had a great array of restaurants in the lobby. There was an issue with the pool on Saturday, and it was closed most of the day. This was one of the main reasons we chose the hotel. However, the pool was re-opened on Sunday morning and the staff were very gracious in making amends with complimentary parking, as well as passing out free ice cream and popsicle treats to everyone at the pool on Sunday. The customer service alone would bring me back to this hotel!
