A nice sofa for you to relax and watch tv.
Bathroom & Toilet
There is shower which run both hot and cold water and a clean bathtub.
Clean towels are fold neatly at the rack.
If you open the wardrobe, iron and iron board are there in case you need to iron your clothes.
But, charges for water!
There is no complimentary mineral water. If you drink the water on the table, you need to pay $2.95 for a bottle. Quite expensive I find, we just went to nearby supermarket to get our drinks, less than $0.50 or zero cents if you drink from the tap.

Final thoughts :
Overall I had a great experience in Double Tree by Hilton San Diego – Mission Valley. The whole hotel, lobby and hotel rooms are very clean and well kept. The hotel room is very spacious and comfortable. Plenty of space to move around beside having three huge suitcases in the room.
What I most delighted was receiving the warm cookies from the front desk! It was such a nice gesture! The cookies are still very warm and taste wonderful as we just need some bites before finding our dinner.
