This was our fourth time to Florida and we have previously stayed in the Best Western Lake Buena Vista but decided to upgrade this time to the Hilton, and what a great decision that was.
Check in was prompt and the staff at the desk were extremely welcoming, providing us with information about the resort and the buses to the parks. We had requested a view of Downtown Disney which also gave us an opportunity to see the fireworks in the distance at night. The room was very clean and comfortable, with plenty of space and light and complete with a sofa bed also.
Breakfast in the hotel was great. We stayed for a little over a week and got to experience two character breakfasts and there was plenty of food available in the buffet (which we opted for each morning). There was also a mini mart on site which was great for getting snacks and drinks at night when we arrived back from the parks. We had dinner in the hotel one or two nights, at the bar, which had a good menu. Had we not been in such close proximity to Downtown Disney we probably would have eaten in one of the other two restaurants also.
The location is brilliant-right next to Downtown Disney with plenty of choice for food and entertainment at night time. The buses for the parks seemed to be more frequent on this visit. I'm not sure if they have consciously worked to improve this since we were last in Disney World but previously we could have been waiting 45-1 hr sometimes for the right shuttle bus to come along, but the service seems to have improved. It's worth noting that we stayed in June too - high season, but had no problem getting onto the bus.
The concierge also arranged transport for us to Universal/Islands of Adventure on two days which wasn't too expensive and arranged a game of golf and a lesson with the course pro for a member of our party, which was extremely enjoyable.
I would definitely stay in this hotel again. You expect a certain standard from a well known chain such as Hilton and the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista certainly met this standard and more.
