The nicest part about this hotel is the outdoor pool & it's across the street from Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure which are the parks we were visiting during our stay in Orlando, Florida. The hotel rooms are just average & smelled a little moldy-Unfortunately there was a large cockroach right in front of our room which wasn't a good start!!

The staff at the Double Tree were incredibly nice and welcoming from the moment we walked through the doors. Cookies for the kids and a room upgrade without even asking. We will definitely include a stay here on future visits to Orlando!

It's a good option if you want a hotel really close to Universal, you can even walk there. Premium Outlets it's also close. Taxi fairs on the hotel are too expensive, better take Uber or a taxi outside. Overall it was a good hotel.

We wanted something close to Universal and we got it. We walked. The shuttles did not run at convenient times for us and we were close enough for us. We loved the Spa and the rooms were almost perfect.

From the moment you arrive to be greeted with a warm cookie until the time you check out, the staff could not do more for you. They are friendly and will go the extra mile to make your stay perfect. The rooms are large clean and comfortable. We stay twice a year for up to six weeks in total and... More

We chose this hotel because we wanted to be close to the park without paying the price to stay on property. The Doubletree fit the bill. It is an easy and pretty walk to Universal or there is a free shuttle you can take. You do need to make a reservation for the shuttle. The Doubletree does charge for parking,... More

The hotel is located less than a mile from Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and City Walk. We were able to easily walk to the park, and I'm in my 50s. The I-trolley has a stop our front as well. Great location. The rooms are a bit dated, but they are clean, have a mini fridge, and was quiet. The... More

This hotel is at the entrance to universal. The rooms are a good size but as others have said a bit tired. The main problem is the lack of charging points. For the money the hotel is fine, parking at $17 is bit expensive but at least internet was included in our rate. If you want a hotel near universal... More
