“Great location if you’re driving to parks and Respectable Rooms at Good Price”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

If you want to stay off Disney property to save some money, the Doubletree is a good option. If you’re going to stay off property, you have to be careful about where you go. Many of the hotels on International Drive are in somewhat sketchy areas. When you get there, you’ll see what I mean.

But the Doubletree backs into SeaWorld at the south end of the International Drive strip, so has a better location. The hotel also attracts business events, which brings in a positive element.

Our room in an outside building (not the tower) wasn’t particularly fancy, but seemed reasonable for the price. It was clean. Water pressure was good and we never had any issue with hot water. You do have to pay extra for parking at $14 per day.

The hotel’s amenities are fine, although not up to the standards of the truly first-class hotels. But the pools are decent and there are other activities such as miniature golf for the kids.

Front desk and other service folks were good and plentiful to get you checked in and out or help with services. Here, again, their focus on business meetings definitely helps.

Location is great. It’s a straight shot from the airport on the tollway. SeaWorld is literally around the corner. And if you turn two quick rights out of the hotel, in just a couple blocks, you turn on to Central Florida Parkway, which merges right on to I-4 to get you down to Disney in a flash. Coming home, you just pop off at the Sea World exit.

Also, there’s a small strip mall across the street from the hotel, so snacks, liquor and a couple fast food and sit down restaurants are right there.

I was in between a family trip at Disney and a work conference at the Orlando Convention Center. I needed accomodations for 1 night and didn't want to pay a lot. I saw a special rate at the Doubletree and decided to scoop it up. After my one night, I wished I had discovered this location and stayed there for my entire 9 days in Orlando. The rooms have been upgraded and provide a Polynesian feel. It's next to Sea World and has multiple pools plus a miniature golf course, pool table, and man sized chess set on the premises. Therefore, it's a great location with great offerings for families. The Convention Center is close and there are a plethora of restaurants within walking distance. If staying multiple days, i highly recommend purchasing the multiple day trolley pass. It will take you anywhere along the miles of International Drive for the length of your stay.

Room Tip: Choose a non-tower room if you want to be closer to pools. Warning: the Adjoining Room Doors are n...

The rooms were good, pretty typical of most hotel rooms, but very clean and extremely quiet. I could not get over how amazing and friendly the staff was. Everyone from housekeeping to bellman to front desk was very helpful and went above and beyond to provide great service. They all seem to be very hard workers. Everyone had such a wonderful attitude - I asked the manager what he was putting in their coffee in the break room!

You also can't beat the on-demand warm chocolate chip cookies at the front desk! My family loved them!

Room Tip: The tower rooms do seem a little nicer, but rooms in the two-story buildings have been upgraded and...

Our recent stay at the Doubletree (Sea World) was everything we expected w had hoped it would be. With 3 different pools to choose from we had our choice of family up beat to quiet and relaxing! The hotel seemed to accommodate guest by placing you in a building with other guest of the same type of parties. With just my husband and I bidding this visit we were located in an outer building with other quiet guest, vs the building with families! I think thats pretty awesome seeing that our visit was with out our own children. Though we didn't play putt putt golf, table tennis, or pool we did check out what the hotel offered. All were very nice and well kept. The hotel staff was very nice for the most part. The only issue we experienced was parking. All guest areas had gated parking and though we were given a parking key our never once worked. We would always call for assistance to open the gate, generally the staff had no problem opening the gate for us. At check out I expressed my frustration to the staff and they were more them happy to remove the paying fees from our bill. In addition we arrived home and my husband realized he left his wallet in the hotel room we called immediately and the Guest Relations Manger handle the issue right away. We can't wait to return to the hotel for a family weekend or another romantic couples weekend!

Good place to stay. Booked my stay on Priceline.com. Didn't get the choice of type of room. Only real problem was that you have to pay for parking at $14/day. We had a jerk park across five stalls with his truck and trailer...not too bad during the week, but on the weekend spaces were at a premium. overall Good stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for non-smoking room.

How do you know you're at a resort location? When the prices they charge for basic services would make a Saudi prince blink.
No better (but no worse) than many of the business hotels I have stayed in before, as far as cleanliness, availability of amenities, etc. BUT THE PRICES FOR BASICS? Incredible! $10 a day for internet? Over $3.00 for a soft drink? Clearly, they cater to the tourists. But, if you bring your family to this location, you need to be mindful that their main goal is to make sure you don't go home with a single dollar in your pocket.

Room Tip: The garden view rooms are better than average. If you want a view, ask for the tower. But if you a...
