Only a 10 or 15 minute walk to Universal City Walk. Very spacious and modern lobby, and nice on premise amenities including a Starbucks, convenience store, restaurant, etc. Very friendly service at the front desk. Don’t forget your chocolate chip and walnut cookie at check-in!

My husband and myself recently stayed in the Doubletree by Hilton with our main purpose being going to both Universal Studios and Island of Adventure. The location of this hotel is absolutely brilliant and is only a 10/15 minute walk to Universal City Walk. The hotel also run a shuttle bus, we preferred to walk as it normally worked out quicker than sitting in traffic etc. We would defiantly recommend this hotel if you are spending a few days over at the parks. The hotel itself is clean and the beds are really comfy. We felt the rooms were a good size and all you really need when you are not going to be in them all day anyways. The staff at this hotel are really great, very attentive and are always willing to help. Overall we would defiantly go back to this hotel and recommend to a friend. Read less

This is a nice property but the room sizes are small and style is old. It worked for our stay in Orlando but not as nice as the hotels we stayed at on the way down. Lobby and restaurants are very nice.

We usually stay at the Best Western next door but the price was comparable this trip so we booked the DoubleTree on this visit to Universal. We had stayed here once before and they have done a great remodel. No complaints whatsoever. Looking forward to the highway pedestrian crossover being complete on our next visit.

We are Diamond members and have stayed at this hotel many times. The hotel is clean and the beds are comfortable. The breakfast buffet is great and we always ask to be seated in Vin's section. He always remembers us and goes above and beyond to make sure that we have everything we need and more. Special thanks to Front Desk Supervisor Brian Lopez… Read more
