Hotel located by freeway, so it was noisy. Room was extremely small and had an odd smell. Just not up to Hilton standards that I am use to. Way too expensive for location and quality. I won't recommend this Hilton hotel to anyone.

We really enjoy our trip, and the hotel had very friendly front desk staff who always assisted us when we needed. I definitely will recommend this hotel to my friends and families when they plan a trip to Seaworld. I am looking forward to visit again with my family.

I love Doubletree and this one is right off the 5 and within walking distance to Little Italy. But $25 for parking and no complimentary breakfast takes it till. The property is a warm, clean and pleasant. At the right price this would be great. And, the cookies are awesome.

Dear Lawrence D ~ Thank you for your comments and Yes, The DoubeTree Cookies and our location are quite amazing!

Pros: This hotel's location is great. It is very close to the airport. They also provide free shuttles to the airport. The rooms are great. You'll have easy access to restaurants if you're willing to walk for five minutes. Who doesn't want to walk in wonderful weather! Cons: you can hear everything in the hallways from the room. Doors make...

My friend and I participated in a 56 mile bike ride, starting in Little Italy. The Doubletree was conveniently located 3 blocks from the start line. The hotel staff was very friendly and welcoming. When we arrived, the room was not ready but we were given complimentary drinks at the bar and the nice room was quickly ready.

Functional Hotel with nice rooms that are well lit. Location isn't bad -- there's a street fair outside on Saturdays, and its walking distance to most attractions. Quiet neighborhood, but safe. Narrow ramps for parking can be a challenge, but otherwise a good bang for the buck. Oh yea, free cookies on check in that are big and good.
