This is in a nice location right next to Downtown disney. We walked over and it was about 10 minutes. They offer buses to the parks and downtown disney. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help you. We were given adjoining rooms as requested and check in was easy. The rooms are basic Holiday... More

Myself, my husband and his son (15, boy) visited Florida during April school vacation week. We are typically a Disney World family but this time my husband really wanted to see the new Harry Potter attraction at Universal Hollywood Studios and I also wanted to spend a day relaxing at the ocean. So we flew into Tampa (cheaper than Orlando,... More

My sons and I stayed here for 4 nights over MLK Day weekend in January and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The hotel is very conveniently located: less than 10 minutes walk from Downtown Disney and a relatively short (free) shuttle bus ride away from the Disney parks. The staff was very friendly, especially David the outside... More

If you want to be close to Disney but not pay the high prices of staying on site then Holiday Inn DTD is worth a try. This hotel is located a 5 minute walk from DTD and easily accessible for SeaWorld and Universal. The hotel is located very close to loads of good reasonably priced restaurants. There are a few...

We stayed here for 3-nights during a recent trip to the Orlando area. The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to Downtown Disney (about 10-minutes or so) so it's a great place to stay if you plan to spend any time there.

Hassle free stay at the Holiday Inn. Amazing value for money! Well appointed rooms - very clean! Great room service breakfast! Free shuttle was very useful and close proximity to Downtown Disney was appreciated. Would definitely stay here again!

Stayed here the last week of March 2012 with my daughter. Great hotel. Upon our arrival we were upgraded to the 14th floor overlooking pool and downtown Disney. Fabulous view.

I chose this hotel based on the Trip Advisor reviews and the online room rate. The reviews were right on target. My top priorities in a hotel are cleanliness, location and customer service. The rooms were spotlessly clean and included a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The beds were very comfortable and had a choice of soft or firm... More
