The Waldorf Astoria in Orlando is a very good hotel. The front desk staff during the day are very nice. Late at night, the front desk staff is so so. I paid $500/night for a king suite. In the future, I would choose a king room for $300. Even though I booked thought Amex platinum, I did not receive an upgrade. I got a room on the third floor overlooking the roof. The interior was very nice. The room had 2 plasma tvs and the bathroom was large. The bar, peacock alley had excellent servers and a very nice atmosphere. Breakfast at Oscar's was so so. The hostesses are very kind. Jose was our waiter the first day. He was the best employee at the hotel. He engages you in intelligent conversation and remembers your name the next day. The server the next day was slow and subpar. His "my pleasure" sounded so fake. The carpet and furniture at Oscar's was garrish. It looked like a crummy Hilton. A lot of the other wait staff and omelette chefs were space cadets.
Overall, we had a good stay, but not worth $500/night. They have attentive staff, but still not worthy of 5 stars. More
