Stayed at the Hilton Orlando for a one night getaway with my wife and was very impressed. As you pull into the hotel's front loop you already get the feeling that your stay will be elegant and luxurious. The Hilton's Lobby is warm and rich with a huge black marble front desk. The desk is divided into different sections that allows the agents to come out from behind the desk and escort you back to their station creating a more personal and welcoming check in experience. This was how Josh checked us in at least. During check in Josh noticed that my HHonors preferences did not match up with the room type i booked and asked if i would like to change rooms which I did. After a wonderful check in the a very quick elevator ride up to the 14 floor i got to my room which was very nice. The furniture was well maintained and i didn't see anything that was scratched or damaged. The hotel also had a large selection of TV channels to choose from as well as on demand options. My reservation also included access to their executive or VIP lounge. The lounge on the top floor provides cocktails (Prices for drinks were incredibly reasonable) and a small complimentary buffet of appetizers, crackers, cheeses, fruits and more from i think 6p-7p. The lounge also does a desert spread from i think 8-9. The staff in the lounge was great. We met Courtney and Josh. Courtney was perfect, she was engaging, relaxed, and yet very professional I don't think you could find a better host in my opinion for that room and my wife and I plan to return in no small part because of her. Josh was also a star. I felt like Josh really went above and beyond what i would expect to see, just so my wife and i could enjoyed ourselves. Later that evening we went down to the pool deck. It was colder that evening so everyone was in the hot tubs which they have two of but are spacious enough to hold plenty of people. We also braved the cold to float down the lazy river (nicely heated water) which was scenic at night with all the landscaping. Spraying water jets got a little annoying on a cool night but i could see how during the hot days they are great. Pool deck is massive with a huge pool, water slide for kids, 2 built in basketball hoops for an in-pool ballgame, a full basketball court and child sized half court just off the deck, large activity lawn with a volleyball net, tennis court, 1/4 mile jogging track, two pool tables, two fooseball tables, lockers available for rent, and a large restaurant/bar. They also have a very large fire pit just outside the pool gates that is a great meeting place to hang out and have a drink. Rest of the property is simply amazing and needs to be seen first hand. Staff in the store was also very helpful getting medicine for my wife who wasn't feeling well in the morning. The store has a large selection and seemed to be stocked with enough items that if you came for a weeks vacation with no luggage they would have you covered with everything from swim trunks to a full suit and some Disney souvenirs to take back home. From start to finish, check in to check out the staff and service was incredible and would recommend this to any person for any travel needs. We will be back.
