“good suites, and breakfast buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

This hotel is at the end of the downtown Disney hotels on this street--you can walk to downtown Disney in about ten minutes--nice suites, excellent breakfast buffet--but don't go here for the pool, it's small---bus service is ok--keep in mind the downtown Disney hotel busses stop at each of the hotels on this street that are on the same side, and it also goes to 2 of the parks, which means you may have a longer ride. Plenty of restaurants around the corner once you exit Hotel plaza blvd. and the Lake Buena Vista factory shops. Free warm chocolate chip cookies at check in, and any time you ask for that matter :) We stayed last December and my husband and son got sick, and we needed to leave the next day, they graciously did not charge me for the full stay, which was the decent thing to do.

We booked this hotel through a promotion we saw on MouseSavers. They'd given it a great review, and for our family, it delivered. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We really loved all the servers at breakfast - especially Rolbert. We didn't spend much time in the hotel, but we did relax in the pool and had nice drinks when we first arrived. The time we did spend there was enhanced by a great variety of good quality breakfast items and upbeat employees. My kids also loved the cookies! And a shout out to the great lady working at the Disney store in the lobby - she was fantastic in helping us get souvenirs!

When you've worked hard a whole year and you go on vacation you want to enjoy your free time feel from the moment you're already out of work, when you get to the hotel,the first
impression is front desk ,it was a really rude lady over there ,

We arrived at the hotel at 1: 00 pm and had to wait until 4:00 pm to get ready our room, we sat in the lobby and saw many people who came after us,hotel is not that good after that ,pool is dirty and small ,rooms are ok but not very clean ,really bad coffe ,so if you can go to another place better .

Recent took a family vacation wanted to base out of orlando are for some attractions and amusement parks. Choose this hotel for the proximity to Disney and centrally located for other activities. Hotel staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. I only are complementary breakfast during my stay and was enough to keep all in the family well off for a few hours. Good variety. Mickey Mouse waffles were spot on and actually had fresh fruits and healthy options. Unfortunately coffee was horrible I tried it three days in a row and all three days it one sip and done. I can't explain it but I personally did not enjoy the coffee. The room was spacious and comfortable. Cleanliness on par with hotel chain. The pool was a bit of a disappointment. The pictures on the website make it look larger than it actually is. The pool was pretty empty during our time there but we did notice as kids walked about a few loose cobble tiles around the pool area that could be a hazard. Mentioned it to hotel staff who said they would look into it. Another disappointment was after a long day running around and walking the parks I tend to want to sit in hot tub and by pool with a drink and relax. On the four nights I was there the pool bar was never open. Of course you had the option to call room service and order but no menus no way of knowing what was available. If your going to have this feature at least staff it a few hours a day. I would have spend more time trying to recover in this area if not for this. The hotel had a disney shop where you could purchase tickets to disney and you have the Hilton vacation club folks waiting to offer you a "free prize" for stopping by and chatting them up. I avoided the vacation club but did stop in the Disney store in order to purchase tickets for my adventure. Unfortunately for two full days the machines were not working so I had to wait in line at the park. Great feature to have at hotels but did not get to use it. The hotel did offer a hotel shuttle to all Disney parks and downtown disney. We took the bus to and from the park but it makes stops at four hotels and due to the doubletree location we were the last to board a very crowded bus. It was a free ride so can't complain but definitely very crowded. Buses run 1 hour prior to park opening and stop around same one hour after. Over good stay had some ups and downs but good hotel option if Disney is your fancy. A lot of resurants near hotel most within walking distance or short cab fair. Overall good stay.

I'm all about the chocolate chip cookie...and unfortunately, this is the only thing that this property delivered.
The only calling card is it's location to downtown Disney attractions. I was somewhat shocked that they charge you for self park. It just seems like a gauge. It is a very a la carte locations focused on getting as much out of their guests as possible.
The front desk associate was not engaged in her job. Note: we are called "guests" not "cattle".
The rooms are comfortable but seem outfitted by TJmaxx (and I'm sorry, TJ).
If you are solely concerned with close proximity to Disney and are not looking for ANY kind of hotel experience; then this property is for you. I wish you well and have a Disney-rific vacation.

We stayed at the Doubletree as part of our honeymoon trip, and we were overwhelmed by the warmth of the welcome. We were greeted with complimentary champagne and strawberries, and a thoughtful hand written note. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable, with a kitchenette and a television in both the lounge and the bedroom. The bed was huge, and comfortable. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Took our family for a vacation around the Disney World area and enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the hotel staff were all very friendly. Would go back again no doubt.
