Downtown Orlando is a fairly confined area. Then there's the outskirts and then it gets a little sketchy and dangerous. This would be in the outskirts area. The hotel itself is just fine. Good staff, clean room, coffe maker and my favorite tea in the room.
Free internet and of course the warm cookie were great. Paying for parking though? Come on, that's just a rip off. Its a Doubletree not a full blown Hilton. That was my only big problem with this place. That and them having downtown in their name.
This hotel is not downtown it is next to downtown. I'd stay here again anytime as long as the rate was right.
