“Loved The Proximity To Universal Orlando!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Stayed at this hotel for one night in early November.

Loved how close we were to Universal and the I-4 highway.

Diamon upgrade was a free breakfast in the morning that was very good. Would stay again!

This was my first stay at this hotel and I couldn't have picked a better place. At first glance the hotel seemed huge but it really is quite easy to get around. The restaurants & pool are closer that they appear. Check-in was a breeze as was check-out. The only item that I thought was an issue is that guests must pay to park. I want to give a great big thank you to Nigel, hotel manager, and Joseph Teano, security for all their assistance. I had an accident (no fault of the hotel) in my bathroom and they were very accommodating, thoughtful and truly looked out for me-providing all types of assistance.

An older, but well kept property that's really in a great location right next to the park. Although they charge for parking, even though their lot is huge and should be free, you save a lot of money by being able to walk into the park. The hotel has a starbucks, another restaurant or two, and the breakfast buffet was staffed by very nice personnel. Overall a good experience.

We booked last minute as we decided to go to Universal Studios on our last day. So glad we did. We could walk to the park (15 mins) avoiding the £15 car parking charge. The reception staff were really friendly and we could check in immediately at 9am in the morning and had a late checkout at 12pm. We also used their phone to sort an issue with the hire car - really appreciated.
The room was spacious with 2 queen beds. Lovely coffee maker, good TV and nice views from 11th floor. Bathroom could do with updating but was fine and for what we paid this was great value.

This hotel has a very large hall, the concert/event went with out a problem and we are very satisfied with the result and the hotel staff. Highly recommend this hotel to any body that needs to have an event like ours.

I stayed at this Doubletree for the first time this week, and was not sure what to expect. The excellent and warm welcome at the check in desk was most comforting, and the small gift of a warm chocolate cookie and two bottles of water was proof that the hotel cares for it's guests. The room I had was more than comfortable and spotlessly clean. The bar was well stocked providing excellent service and what thought was a great idea by probing individual speakers so you could select which of the wall mounted TV's without the sound upsetting people nearby. I only had breakfast in the morning. The selection of food on the buffet not only looked tempting but was hot where it should be, and I could help but notice that dishes were replaced before they actually ran out. The Omelette bar was run by helpful chefs who did their utmost to please. Every employee I had reason to talk too was more than pleasant, and helpful, and lived up to the badge they were wearing whit had the letters WIT, that I found out means. "whatever it takes". They certainly do that. The hotel bears testament to management's desire to go the extra mile. I have stayed at other Doubletrees, that have all been good but this one stands out on it's own

Room Tip: Stay in the tower rooms

I stayed at the hotel in October for the Spooky Empire convention, overall I was pretty happy with the Hotel, the rooms were always clean and staff very very friendly and helpful. Just some minor issues I saw:

My hotel room did not have a shower curtain the first night for some reason, had this taken care of the next day. Service at UNOs was really slow, took us an hour to get our order. The upper floor lobbys don't seem to have AC running, or it was set to hot. Other than that, everything was great. I did not have any major parking issues that others have reported, one time my key did not work on the gate, but a staff member answered the callbox right away and let me out with no problems.
