“Business trip with all the comforts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

My recent stay was great. I was here for 3 nights. I had a 4th floor room with 2 doubles. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable after standing all day long. The front desk staff is very welcoming and nice to see a smile on each and every face. I ate at the italian restuarant one night and it was delish the second night we ate sushi. Very busy resturants so make your reservations early. There are 2 great pool areas and a cabana, a cute little beach shop and disney store. The walk over the downtown Disney is only 5 minutes. Ask if I'd stay again? yes!

We got an amazing price and the stay was great. The room was fantastically clean, was a very nice size, and was a great location. The only downside was the wait for the bus to and from the park. It wait was a little lengthy, and Disney transportation is more reliable, but the value of thus Hilton can not be compared. It was great for the price and would definitely recommend the hotel, even at a higher price. Two thumbs up!

I usually do not write reviews.. But we had such a great experience and it all had to do with the employee's! We were greeted by Dolly at check in and she was such a great help. We just left a disaster from the North East and was so happy to get away from it. We shared our experience with her and asked as a gold member if there were any upgrades available. Without hesitation she looked and was able to get our family of four into a small suite. Thank you for making our trip so enjoyable! She is a GREAT employee!

As for the hotel, it is your typical disney resort hotel. 24 hr store with snacks, drinks and sandwiches. The rooms are simple and clean. The buffet character breakfast was well worth it. Bus service was great to have and saved you the car rental plus daily parking fee.

My only suggestion is that you need to update your pools. We have a small child and both pools started with depths of 3 ft. There was a small children's pool, but was more for infants. This is the one thing that needs to be updated. If you update your pools we will stay here every time!

This hotel is in walking distance to Downtown Disney, the rooms are clean comfortable and the onsite restaurants and bars were often busy with a good atmosphere. We were on holiday at the end of October and we were pleased at the good rates we got due to being low season.

If you're wanting to visit DisneyWorld, but don't want to stay on-property, then the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista is for you. It's a large place that can accommodate families (with connecting rooms), but it's also fully plugged into the Disney experience. You can take the buses directly to the parks or other hotels right from the Hilton and it's directly across from Disney Downtown (it's a two-minute walk).

The rooms are just fine and the beds are comfortable. If you're there on business, you'll have wireless internet access (which was speedy enough to watch videos on) and a desk for getting work done. They have a nice workout facility, a great pool (with bar/restaurant) and several excellent restaurants there on site, including a Benihana.

On the downside, this place can get crowded and they are sometimes unable to accommodate requests like upgrades or king beds. If that upsets you, pay the extra and stay on site. Otherwise, this is an excellent choice that offers the best of both worlds.

Room Tip: Some rooms have views of the Disney park fireworks. They charge extra for these (of course), but it...

We got sucked into coming here as part of a Hilton promotion for time share, we were told we were getting a beautiful suite, upon booking I realised I was put in a two dbl bed suite, I emailed Fanny twice, and she informed me it was fixed. So upon checkin it hadn't been changed, we didn't get a suite at all, and appears we were downgraded to an older style room, nota suite at all, and nothing like the pictures, paint peeling off the roof in the bathroom.
This hotel is a tourist trap that caters for those who only want to spend all their time at Disney parks or Downtown Disney, nothing else nearby unless you have a car. It cost $20 in cab fare to the nearest pharmacy at Walmart, only food available is from the Hilton which is a little cheaper than downtown Disney. So don't forget you'll need plenty of money, $20 each for breakfast. It says the hotel is four star but I wouldn't give it much more than a three. Was disappointed their was no hot shower at night, so if you like a hot shower have it in the morning. Buyer beware of the holiday plan, think how much interest would you earn if you put the money in the bank, how much holiday could you get with the annual fees. Do your sums, and if we couldn't be accommodated in November what chance does anyone really have.
