The hotel was awesome. The staff was very friendly and helpful. As always, the warm chocolate chip cookies were amazing. The location was very convenient. The hotel shuttle took us to the theme parks and picked us up hassle free.

Can't go wrong with this hotel and staff. The rooms are great, the amenities are great, the lobby and atmosphere is exceptional and the price could not be touched anywhere else. I will stay here every time I'm in Orlando.

We stayed at DoubleTree for 2 nights during our visit to Universal Studios. I have to say it was such a great hotel and well above my expectations. As it wasn't a Resort Hotel, and because we got it at such a good price, I expected it to just be a normal little hotel/motel and probably pretty run down, but I was so surprised when we arrived.

We stayed at DoubleTree for 2 nights during our visit to Universal Studios. I have to say it was such a great hotel and well above my expectations. As it wasn't a Resort Hotel, and because we got it at such a good price, I expected it to just be a normal little hotel/motel and probably pretty run down, but I was so surprised when we arrived. It was amazing! The foyer smelt so clean (just what you need after a long day of travel) and it was nice and open. Our room was an average hotel type room, we didn't expect too much but it was lovely, clean and slightly bigger than expected. The amenities and service were nothing short of fantastic. The pool, games room, laundry, jacuzzi and entertainment area was just what we needed. It was walking distance (about 20 mins) to Universal Studios too. I would highly recommend, especially for those needing somewhere nice to stay before an d after their days at Universal. Read less

My epilepsy tablets went missing from room a few days into holiday.That wasn't the main problem.The problem was the management.They were terrible.They weren't interested.Just said we cant find them and that was that.I could have had an epileptic fit at anytime.They just said that there was a medical center a few miles away and that was that.So I had to get there and back(don't drive)and pay for the medication myself.And don't even bother trying to talk to the general manager.They wont let you.The director of security told me I should have locked my tablets in the safe.Thats the advice I got.Thats great advice if iam having an epileptic fit and foaming at the mouth.They have a sign at reception that says.If you have a problem we will sort it.The biggest load of b******t I have ever read.

Stayed here as a points redemption (27,000 point for each night). I am a silver member. I didn't get my free cookie or complimentary water that is normally included with my tier membership (I assume this is not applicable on redemption nights).

Stayed here as a points redemption (27,000 point for each night). I am a silver member. I didn't get my free cookie or complimentary water that is normally included with my tier membership (I assume this is not applicable on redemption nights). This is a great hotel if visiting Universal Studios. Its a short walk (5-10 minutes) to the park entrance and by using the valet entrance you save a significant amount of time going through security. The room was very nice and spacious (I had a corner room) and had a great view of the parks. I decided that $20 was too expensive for their buffet breakfast so frequented the local Golden Coral for $9 which is only a couple of minutes walk away. The in-house Avis car hire was especially convenient as I only needed a car for one day and returned this to the airport. Read less
