“Fantastic Hotel For Florida Trip”
Reviewed October 4, 2010

Me and my partner have just arrived back from orlando and we can honestly say this hotel was excellent.

we spent two weeks at the doubletree from the 18th september to the 2nd october, we were given a double room which overlooked the back car park and although this doesnt sound great it was fantastic as it was very quiet at night and in the morning and because the pool near our building was open till midnight there was still music playing till the pool closed which in my opinion would have been very annoying.

the rooms were spotless and the beds made everyday, very polite maids who always said good morning with a smile which was nice as ive been to some hotels where the maids look as if they want to chuck themselfs off the side of the building and are extremely rude.

2 great pools to choose from the pool with the waterfall was beautiful to sit at during the day and the other pool was good for sitting out late at night and have a little aftersun dip.The jacuzzi was extremely hot though so i'd take note haha as me and my partner sat right in and got the biggest shock of our lives at how hot the water was lol.getting sunbeds at the pool was not a problem either and they provide towels so no need to carry your own down to the pool

We ate out on international drive everynight of the holiday but on our last couple of nights we decided to eat in at the bamboo grille which was absolutely emmence better than any of the restauraunts that we ate out at, just wish we had went more times cause the food was delicious and reasonably priced, the buffet breakfast was good aswell and although it is 15 dollars each which seems expensive for 2 people at breakfast the choice was very good.

the reason i say the breakfast seems expensive is because me and my partner could eat breakfast across the road at the village inn for under 20 dollars but both are lovely.

the i ride bus stops are located right outside the hotel which are great for getting to international drive, the malls etc and good for coming back home.

the only thing i will say is that the i ride was ridiculous at night for about 7 nights we waited upto 30 mins- 45mins on one trolley coming and by that time there is a massive queue at the stop and the bus is packed so unless your right at the front then sometimes they dont let you on this was so bad it actually made us eat in the bamboo grille in the final week as we were sick of it

the more i think of it was a blessing in disguise so not too bad :)

my advice for getting onto international drive at night if you find yourself in this situation is get the LYXN 42 BUS, the bus stop is to the left of the i ride stop, its 2 dollars for a single ride and not alot of people ride it so you'll be in the middle of i-drive in about 5 minutes as opposed to the the half hour bus journey we endured only going about 6-7 stops.Well worth it if you can't be bothered waiting in the humid night air.

along with the i trolleys the LOVEBUGS are an absolute nightmare they are 2 little flies which are stuck together which crawl and fly around they are a nightmare and it actually made us go up to our room early one evening as their was so many of them they are not dangerous or dont bite just extremely irritating when you are trying to catch the rays so i'd suggest a good bug squatter lol

the hotel does shuttles to both disney and universal and they pick up at the hotel at reasonable times and there is very few stops which is good but since your the first on the bus going to disney that makes you the last to get off and they pick up from 4 other hotels but it was nice to catch a nap on way back to hotel.

on that final note i would recommend this hotel to anyone who was planning a trip to orlando as it made our holiday so much better having the comforts of the doubletree.

just remember to enjoy your warm cookie on arrival the bad thing is they only give you one per person lol haha

Thanks for the great review and sharing a helpful tip on the buses available. You mentioned only 2 of the 3 pools we have, so we hope you were able to enjoy all of them! Fortunately the Lovebugs come out in Florida twice a year, April/May and August/September for about 3-5 weeks depending on the climate. You’re right they don’t bite or sting, just a bit annoying! The solution we see to getting another delicious, warm Doubletree cookie is to visit with us again soon – we would welcome the opportunity to have you and your partner back at Doubletree Resort Orlando!

we stayed at the doubltree for 14 days, came back yesterday 3rd october, what a fantastic place, lovely rooms, the grounds of the hotel are lovely, the pool nearest to our room was quiet and a pleasure to sit there reading or just relaxing, maxi's deli was great for coffee in the morning and we had a lovely meal in the bamboo grille restaurant, close to all the attractions, especially sea world and aqautica whuch we walked to, cant wait to go back again, missing it already

There are 2 doubletrees in Orlando so dont get confused. This hotel was beautiful. I stayed with my husband and would def go back again! We didnt stay in the tower section of the hotel, but in the outside rooms. They really were amazing. Shops nearby, seaworld and aquatica are walking distance.......its also right on the i4 so you can get everywhere really quickly. Best location i have stayed in Orlando!

Stayed here years ago when it was a Sheraton. Much improved since it is now under the Hilton umbrella. The renovation did not cut corners. Everything was freshly painted and rooms looked new. The landscaping is great condition. The dining options included reasonably priced options that some resorts in Orlando ignore. A Subway was right across the street if you wanted something on a budget. The pools were always pleasant and had group activities during our holiday weekend stay.

Only negative was the parking fee. I don't remember one during the Sheraton days. I understand this type of fee in a downtown area, but this hotel is in a pretty isolated area off I-Drive.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here during the first 2 weeks of September and had the best holiday ever staying at the Doubletree. The hotel location to SeaWorld and Aquatica were fantastic only a short 5-10 minute walk away, free shuttles were also provided to Universal, Busch Gardens and Disney which made it hassle free for the both of us. On our first day we managed to purchase I-Ride tickets at only $17 for the 2 weeks which allowed us to take the I-Ride at anytime we wanted which made it easy for us to enjoy the whole of International Drive without paying out for taxi's everytime. The hotel staff were more than helpful and were able to assist with any questions or queries we had throughout our stay, the rooms were cleaned and beds were made everyday. Every room came with a coffee machine (which I used everyday) and this was re-stocked every morning so we never ran out. We only managed to get by the pool for one day due to all of our days being full with parks, shopping etc however pool area was very pretty and clean which made it a well needed relaxing day off for the both of us. Overall I would have to say this is the best hotel I have ever stayed in and I will definitely be coming back again in the near future :)

We had a great stay, the hotel was lovely with large rooms, which were clean and comfortable, the staff were very very helpful (particularly when our safe died with everything in it! It was sorted within 15 minutes) and the location was perfect, within walking distance to Sea World and Aquatica and had I-Ride Trolley Bus stop (for International Drive) and bus stop for Disney parks just outside the hotel. Also within walking distance to supermarket and a couple of restaurants. We ate in the hotel restaurant one night and the food was very good, if a little expensive. Defintely the best hotel we've stayed at in Orlando and we will return!!
