TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Pros: Great location for Seaworld Parks. You can walk (10 minutes to the gate) to Seaworld. It is only a 5 minute drive to Discovery Cove and Aquatica. Convenient to i-4 (only a 20 minute drive... Read more to Downtown Disney). Free shuttles to various attractions but, be aware it needs to be set up thru office in lobby and there are limited time frames. That office also provides QuickQueue passes (Fastpass) for Seaworld. Worth the wait to pick that up. Hotel staff seemed pleasant but, somewhat aloof compared to other hotels we've stayed at. Cons: I hate to pay parking fees. It was $17/day for self and $22 for valet. I guess if you are flying into Orlando this wouldn't affect you but, I just find it irritating. I read mixed reviews on the restaurants so we skipped the Bamboo Grill. We did eat at the casual deli the first night we arrived. That worked out fine- the flatbread was enough for my husband & I to share. There was no mini-fridge or microwave in the room. Other Doubletree hotels we frequent do offer that so I would have liked to have that. We stayed in the tower- which was noisy the first night (there was some type of Baptist convention & the people next door were extremely noisy) but, after that first night it was fine. If they had not checked out we probably would have requested to change rooms. The rooms seem to need updating. The beds were comfortable enough but, the decor just seemed dated. Obviously several coats of paint have been applied. Bathroom grout was dirty from years of staining. Only 3 bath towels were left one day for our family of four. Gave more of an overall "Holiday Inn" level of cleanliness as opposed to the Hilton's normal quality. So overall, if you are looking for convenience, this hotel is great. I think I would try a different hotel next time though just to find a more updated and clean decor. 3 pools to choose from but, none of them had a wow factor that is frequently found at other hotels in the Orlando area.

Great location with close proximity to the convention center, parks, shopping, and restaurants. Service was great! Rooms were nice, spacious & very clean. Tower is an upgrade and very quiet, but no... Read more balconies & farther from pools. Nice for couples, yet very kid friendly for families. Ask for fresh, warm cookies at the front desk every day. They are amazing! Read less
The service was great, everyone seemed really nice. The Security was on top of things and very kind. I will say that the food could us a bit of work, I will say the F&B was a bit expensive. The... Read more lobby convention facilities and grounds where awesome!!!! My room was..ok, the stuff that had been re-done was great the counter tops, the fridge and sink and bathroom in general was really nice. Part of the wooden molding in my room fell off the wall in the middle of the night (imagine a 2x4 5 feet long falling 6 feet smashing on the counter and then on the steel trash can and floor.) It truly sounded like someone was taking an axe to the front door. I mentioned it the next day to some one that had a floor several rooms away and on a different floor and they said "wow, that was in your room!! It scared the crap out of me". I also looked today and saw some charges that I am a little fuzzy about (not the parking, but tow separate charges for 60+ dollars and the room was supposed to be $89 maybe some crazy taxes i don't know, I called and they said they didn't see the charges. I guess What i am saying is for 89 or 129 it was well worth the stay for a convention like that. Read less
Let me tell you we got a Groupon deal and it was great. Would I be happy if I paid full price, not so much. The room reminded me of an old Holiday Inn with a bathroom so small you had to stand in the... Read more shower to close the door. It had the old clunker of an AC under the window even though they built a case to hide it. I have to say I never felt clean here. Nothing specific but found myself wearing shoes in the room all the time. We did some eating and drinking and that was all ok. Pricey but it is a hotel. The staff was one of the best part. Genuine and friendly. Not sure if every guest gets it but front of the line passes were included for Seaworld and they are great. Read less
