Having just stayed at the Doubletree in Rochester, MN, the week before arriving in Orlando, I was disappointed to find out that the quality of the two is apparently not consistent. We booked this stay through the Seaworld website as It is one of its "partner" hotels. I think that must be a pretty distant partnership. When we checked in, the clerk made no mention of any amenities associated with our package. We were not placed in the tower, but in a room in one of the out buildings. The room was very outdated. The air conditioning definitely worked well though--as in it would never turn off--not a good accompaniment for the thin blanket on the bed. The walk to Aquatic involves exiting out of the back service gate by the dumpsters and walking on a dirt path along a busy road. The walk to Seaworld is out through another back entrance and through a large parking lot for the administration center and across another busy street without a cross walk. If the hotel and Seaworld boast about being in walking distance, it should really do something to make the walk nicer and well-
marked. The grounds of the hotel weren't much better. We walked by a cottage cheese container left on the railing for about two days before it was finally picked up. When we went to the coffee shop at about 9am, the coffee was empty, which they did refill but didn't bother to refill the cream. While I felt like the package price we received was fair, I would rather spend more and stay somewhere I can relax.
