WA, Orlando is part of the Hilton properties on the Bonnet Creek Resort Lane and is located inside the resort area. Beautiful property and facilities, relatively medium sized hotel which shares a Golf Course with Hilton Bonnet Creek. The room was well appointed with clean business like upkeep. The WiFi is charged, though for business and leisure travelers, it is a hygiene, which must be offered complimentary.

The 18 hole Golf Course is exemplary and though the hotel has a spa and a fitness centre, running/jogging on the Golf Cart tracks in the morning were absolutely priceless. Overall a fantastic property and good facilities to boast of. There are regular complimentary shuttle services to Disney Resorts and Premium Outlets, which is a bonus and were well appreciated as otherewise, the wait for cab is a long one.

Stayed for 4 nights, a fantastic experience overall.

Room Tip: Ask for pool facing rooms

This is an excellent hotel and has a great staff(who know you by name). I'm happy to recommend it. I stayed here for leisure while my wife was attending a convention. It has been consistently provided great service and the hotel is in great condition.

The staff members, lovely amenities and great food make this hotel one of the best in the area. It was actually surprisingly affordable and the rooms were sparkling clean. Shuttle service between Disney World attractions were frequent and very reliable. We even had a view of the Epcot. In addition to this, we could also see the nightly fireworks from our window!
Room service was expensive but not surprising at all. The food was worth every penny. I look forward to coming back to Orlando and when I do, I'll be sure to return to the Waldorf Astoria.

Room Tip: Higher floors= better views of the fireworks at night

We stayed four night at WA for a family vacation. The hotel is a calm oasis in Orlando with everything you would expect from Waldorf: service, cleanliness and high prices. Pool was not overcrowded, the restaurants were good, the shuttle to Disney convenient, noise level low and the proximity to Hilton increased the array of options and activities. Nice hotel, but rather big and dry.

From the moment we walked into the property we felt special. Everyone was using our name. I cannot say enough about Steve, our Bellman, he was very informative, engaging and professional. The room was beautiful and clean and we had a gorgeous view. Can't wait to return.

I saw a review describing this place as a 'Wanna-be" Mandarin Oriental or W. That's not exactly how I would rate the Waldorf Astoria Orlando but I agree there is definitely something missing, that could otherwise make the experience a true "palace hotel" one. To be honest the hotel is just simply victim of its location : Orlando. The Wanna-Be are actually the customers. There is a degree of "I made it" pretention that somehow ruins the party. The problem is that it spread to the service levels which are a bit "4 star resort like", i.e. nowhere near a NYC or London top class establishment.

Being keen on wine and food, as well as good quality hotel furnishing, I was really impressed by the quality of it all. My steak at the Bull and Bear was out of this world (but don't count on the waiter to explain to you what it is), the wines I tried where outstanding for the price (but again no advice), even the bar food was superb. My bed was of the utmost quality and I slept like a log in the quietest room ever. I would recommend the sport amenities, golfing in particular, where the equipment provided was just of un-heard quality (Brand new Nike set for everyone) and the course a true delight to play around. So Kudos to the designers, the chefs, the housekeeping and the Golf Club, just remember to assess your customers better and take the staff out on a trip to other NYC properties so that they get a feel for what Waldorf Astoria means truly.

A wonderful place for couples to getaway. SPA services are excellent. We recommend the couples massage. If you're a guest of the hotel you receive complimentary access to the SPA services all day and night. The amenities are top notch and offer a relaxing environment.
