This hotel has a gorgeous lobby. You will find that the hotel is located about 5 minutes away from Downtown. Fine for either walking or driving.
I found upon checkin as a Gold HHonours member that I wasn't upgraded, though a Diamond HHonours member checking in at the same time, was upgraded. I wasn't affected by this though. I didn't exactly think that the checkin process was what it could of been. It was "Yep, yep, and you are Room 15.., oh and you're a Gold HHonours member, thanks for your loyalty..."
As the DoubleTree by Hilton promise goes, you do get your cookie upon checkin! The hotel also has a shuttle bus going to Downtown and around the place too.
The room was clean, and tidy. The bed was super comfortable! They were dated in terms of age and décor, though to the hotels credit it is not new. It kept in a clean fashion, the hallways and communal areas are also clean.
The breakfast buffet here in the restaurant was fantastic. The best one I've ever been to for a Hilton hotel and any hotel for that fact.
I would recommend you staying at this hotel if you are looking for an option in Orlando, Florida!
