My post/review will mostly be about Ingrid, the cook/omelet/breakfast creator of the hotel restaurant. We went during the Gay Day at Orlando, Disney celebration and although we had been warned that... Read more there would be pool parties at every pool and that you would be able to hear the music, they did not tell us that the it would feel as if the DJ's were in your room. We were by one of the side pools, not even by the main pool, and there was hardly anyone there, but they kept that music going until 2 a.m. It was horrible. I called the front desk and asked them if they could turn off the music because aside from the DJ, there were two people in the pool. Nope! The rooms are nothing special, honestly, but it the hotel is in a good location. Perhaps if I go there when there isn't this type of celebration I may like it more, but I did love their restaurants within the lobby. Read less
We stayed between the 19th July and 6th August in the Tower on the 14th Floor. We cannot fault this hotel it was superb. Fantastic Location in the middle of International Drive. Hotel staff were very... Read more kind and friendly. The concierge was very handy especially when booking theme park tickets through them. It was very clean and tidy and the food was very nice. The beds are very comfortable and the WiFi in the room is very fast. Read less
Overall we had a good comfortable stay at doubletree. We had an issue booking in as one of our rooms were not ready even though we were 2 hours delayed. Some small problems with housekeeping, one bed... Read more not made on one occasion (still took the tip though) and coffee/sugar not always restocked. Prices very high for drinks. Facilities good and very clean/well maintained. Staff all friendly and helpful. Read less
The hotel was average, but not worth the price. The house keeping has issues. They never left the correct amount of towels/wash cloths. The first night the tv stations did not come in and the... Read more second to the last night the telephone quit working. This is how we know the maintenance department is awesome. The tv was fixed in a fair amount of time, but they could not fix the telephone before we left (had to call company to come in). We were able to get a room a night early when we arrived. Was told we had queen beds, but they were smaller than the double beds at any other hotel we ever stayed at. Read less
