Family-friendly digs a trolley ride away from Qualcomm football stadium, the Gaslamp Quarter, Old Town and Petco Park.
Although the Doubletree Mission Valley is a bit off the beaten path, the amenable service, comfortable surroundings and moderate prices make the ride into town worth it. The modern rooms have style, and the outdoor settings are appealing, especially the blazing fire pits by the pool. This 300-room hotel is great for families with children who love to swim --- the fountain-like Splash Pad allows hours of fun while adults relax by the pool or swim some laps. Meeting space is on hand for business travelers, with an more than 8,000-square-foot executive ballroom. State-of-the-art equipment for audio/visual presentations and video conferencing are available. The hotel’s dining venue, the Fountain Cafe, serves breakfast daily in a casual, kid-friendly atmosphere.
