The DoubleTree Mission Valley has a Starbucks nearby.  ;)
The doubletree mission valley is awesome!
Stayed there for 5 years.
A movie theater is next door, along with a B&N, and a sports bar.
The trolley stop is across the street.
The trolley ride is long though. About 45 minutes with 2 transfers.
I never used the express as it started after I was already at the convention center.

And you get a warm cookie at checking.

If I may, I would also recommend checking out some of the hotels in Chula Vista. That's where I stayed last year and it was just a quick 20 minute ride on the trolley right to the convention center.

I stayed at the Best Western South Bay Inn. Not fancy but clean and quiet. It was also much more affordable (I had 4 nights for under $400!!!)

This year, we are booked into the Hercor Hotel in Chula Vista, also on the trolley route. I think rooms are running about $200/ nt at the moment if you book direct through the hotel.

Note Embassy Suite has a Dunkin Donut, but it is in a sketchy part of town.  I waiting for the Early Bird Sale as I am looking to save money and don't need a downtown room, as I am not into Hall H panels.

No longer need to transfer. The green line, which is the line that services Doubletree, as of 2 years ago has been extended and is now also the line that services the Convention Center. No transfers and a much quicker trip now.
