“Central Hotel for Orlando Vacation”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

We just returned from a 5 night stay and had a great time. We arrived around 930pm so check in was a breeze. We were in building 5 facing the parking area, the room was larger than a standard hotel room with 2 double beds. I will say with the size of the room it would have been nice if they could have had a small table with a few chairs, we ate in the room several nights and that would have made it quite a bit easier, but again not a huge deal. The room itself was clean and the beds comfortable. I will agree that the safe is not in the best location.

The room location was great, we were only a few doors from the parking area which was convenient and we were very close to the family pool area and mini golf. The pools were great, plenty of loungers available and the hot tub was HOT and was perfect relief to sore feet after a day at the parks. During the day at the family pool they did have wait staff for drinks etc.

For us the best part of the hotel was the location. We did single day passes to Sea World, Legoland, Universal and Magic Kingdom. We walked to/from Sea World which took maybe 10 minutes tops. Definitely make sure you stop by the business center/concierge to get the Quick Queue passes---that was AWESOME! Front of the line access for the top 7 or 8 attractions at the park. But getting to/from Disney and Universal was a 10-15 minute drive so this really is a central location.

After reading some of the previous reviews, I was a little shocked at all of the negative posts and am glad we really didn't encounter any real issues including parking and using the gate, I am really shocked about the issues with that, just tap your room key card to get in and out, wasn't difficult. I too hate hidden fees and do feel the parking fee of $15 per night is ridiculous but in trying to find a hotel for this trip it is either you pay a parking fee or a resort fee so some how you will be paying the extra no matter where you stay. I agree with everyone and think they should just add it in to the nightly rate and eliminate it all together. In regards to some of the complaints about exterior/outside entry, similar to extra fees, it is hard to avoid this in Orlando. We have stayed previously at the Sheraton Vistana Villages and at 2 Disney Resorts and all have exterior access to your rooms. So I wasn't shocked and it wasn't an issue.

Overall we had a fun, comfortable, enjoyable stay. I would recommend this hotel to others and would return again.

We do offer multiple room types throughout our resort, and our team is always available to assist with any questions or concerns you may have.

The grounds are both serene and breathtaking. I felt like I was visiting a tropical paradise The cleanest and most refreshing pools I have ever encountered. The rooms were spotless and the colors were soothing. I love the deli. The flat bread meals were affordable and fed my whole family for around $10.00! Sea World is your backyard. This hotel offers great deals on park packages. The experience of a lifetime. Stay at the Doubletree By Hilton Orlando At Seaworld on your next vacation!

This hotel is good for families, but it is old and not all the rooms are the same. I requested an upgrade for this stay and was granted it. However, compared to the room I stayed in previously at the same hotel, this one was a downgrade. It was larger and in a slightly better location on the property, but it had no refridgerator or microwave and the room was not modern or fresh. Service was good and people were pleasant.

When staying at the Doubletree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld, our guests have a variety of choices when it comes to room type and location. Our Deluxe accommodations include a refrigerator and microwave, otherwise they can be requested, based upon availability. In addition, we are currently remodeling our resort rooms with new tile entryway and new carpet. Our team is available to help with any questions you may have and we regret we did not provide you with complete satisfaction during your stay. I am glad you found the service and staff to be pleasant. It is our hope to welcome you back the next time you are in the area. Thank you.

Hotel reasonably priced. Staff courteous & helpful. Restaurant food good albeit pricey. Instead of remodeling rooms which are old and tired looking, they tried to freshen it up by throwing on new bed linens. At sink there was no towel rack. Safe in closet awkwardly placed so that you have to contort yourself and squat to access, upon standing up watch out...OUCH, I hit my head on clothes bar. Surely the hotel was aware that our tv was broken from the guests who occupied the room prior to our stay, NOT! Had to call twice for hotel repairman to come out. Thirty minutes later he diagnosed the problem (unrepairable) and quickly returned with a replacement. Could they find a better way for cars to exit the property because sometimes there was a line of cars waiting to exit being held up by people who were trying to put cash in the machine? One night someone crashed through the gate arm, probably out of frustration. I would choose not to stay at this hotel again.

While we are happy you found our team to be helpful and friendly and you were able to enjoy your dining experience, we regret we did not meet your expectations on every level. I thank you for bringing your concerns to my attention and I will work with the staff members further address these issues. We are in the process of replacing entryway tile and carpet in our resort guest rooms. I am sorry about the issue with your TV, but very happy our staff member was able to replace your TV quickly. I regret any inconvenience you may have experienced with exiting the parking area. Sometimes delays may happen due to volume, but usually that is not an issue. Thank you again for being our guest.

A few of my colleagues and I stayed here for A business Convention at The Orlando Convention Center, they offered shuttles that took less than 5 minutes to get to and from the convention center. Very clean, and Modern, beautiful landscaping that surrounded the hotel with games in the courtyard area. There were several great restaurants throughout the hotel, along with a coffee shop/Deli.
