We stayed for three nights this month as part of our family reunion. The DoubleTree gave us a wonderful group rate which included a full buffet breakfast.
Room: The room was perfect for our family. The "sweet dreams" pillows were a nice touch. Everything was clean and well-maintained.
Food/drinks: The included breakfast was great for hungry mouths -- and I loved the fresh squeezed OJ. I also enjoyed the onsite Starbucks kiosk which had caffeine for me and milder drinks for my daughter. Another perk of the hotel is warm chocolate chip cookies upon check in -- however, they were made with nuts. We weren't informed of that until I looked at the cookies. (My family is nut allergic, so sadly the treats went in the garbage.)
Service: The front greeter and bellhop/valet staff were extremely warm and helpful. Their service rivaled some 4-5 star hotels I've stayed at.
Location: While not near Disney, it was close to the other charm of Orlando -- lots of independent restaurants and boutiques. We especially loved being so close to Ethos Vegan Kitchen and Infusion Tea -- two shops we wouldn't have entered were we closer to Maingate.
