The moment I stepped into the lobby at The DoubleTree by Hilton in Claremont I felt like a welcomed guest. The employees were friendly and helpful. Of course, there were also delicious chocolate chip cookies waiting for me!

The hotel is on Foothill Boulevard, which is also historic Route 66. There is food and entertainment within walking distance. Claremont Village, the colleges and the botanic garden are all just a short drive away.
