“Great Rooms, Great Price, Great Location - Inclusive approach to serving our community.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

The rooms at the Doubletree Downtown Orlando are great. Clean, comfy, updated and perfect for business or pleasure. The staff are friendly from the warm cookie greeting to the helpful valets. Breakfast options in clue n awesome buffet no full coffee bar right in the lobby. Walk to the artsy Ivanhoe district or take a quick cab ride downtown to all the best restaurants and clubs or shows.

The Doubletree Downtown Orlando is also a proud supporter of the Metropolitan Business Association and Come Out With Pride. They support the community and I support them!

Room Tip: Higher floors equal better views!

I booked a block of rooms for my family and guests who were coming in town for my wedding. The reservation staff was friendly and able to handle creating a group rate. I hit a few bumps with initial reservation communication, but the overall stay and quality of the hotel was fantastic. I know other reviewers had stated noise complaints, but I did not hear the trains at all and we had a suite with three walls of windows, so I feel like we would have heard it. My only complaint is that the air conditioner in our suite was crazy cold! Better cold than hot though!

Good hotel to crah for the night. Will recommend if you want some buffer from downtown Orlaando. Overall service is good. One annoying point is the train railroad track is not too far from hotel and the tracks are very busy at night.

Stayed at this hotel for a wedding. The car valet seems overwhelmed and perhaps they need to have a float help during busy times. Otherwise, the hotel was great and the staff was very accommodating. I had a pool view and never heard the trains. The rooms were clean,

Be aware there is a train that goes by multiple times in the night blairing it's horn. Hope there is nothing going on in the hotel when it is time for lunch because the restaurant takes forever to take your order and get your food.

Great staff, clean and comfortable room, perfect meeting accommodations. Our meeting included a great buffet style meal. Definitely recommend this hotel. I used valet parking which was great. The fitness center was excellent. Concierge Lounge was self serve and excellent.

The DoubleTree Downtown Orlando is a modern, well-kept and convenient option for business travelers or those visiting the city. The prices are great for the level of accomodations offered. They also are within walking distance to the Ivanhoe arts district and a quick cab ride to all that Downtown Orlando has to offer from the arts to the Amway arena. Its inclusive support of the community is also very much appreciated!
