Stayed here years ago for business. Finally decided to try it again for one night. Already knew there were parking fees, which still seem a bit high for the location. Front desk staff was great. Warm cookie, recognized my status and accommodated my room request. Dining room remodeled nicely. Patio area is nice with water features and a cozy… Read more
Stayed here years ago for business. Finally decided to try it again for one night. Already knew there were parking fees, which still seem a bit high for the location. Front desk staff was great. Warm cookie, recognized my status and accommodated my room request. Dining room remodeled nicely. Patio area is nice with water features and a cozy propane firebowl area. Walking distance to several good restaurants, walgreens, and of course the universal theme parks. Will return. Read less

On a recent trip, left toiletry bag, and Melissa of Housekeeping went out of her way to help me. even when the company accidentally sent the wrong items, she expedited my stuff to me and made it easy for me to return other items so another family could get their things as well. She followed up and made it a very pleasant experience. Thank you… Read more

We booked through a 3rd party site like most people. Showed up and provided a card for incidentals. We left the hotel room in perfect condition as we barely spent time in it. And received a surprise 100$ charge, effectively doubling the cost of our stay. Why? Well because it costs 25$ a night to park on property. They dont tell you that you, as… Read more

And received a surprise 100$ charge, effectively doubling the cost of our stay. Why? Well because it costs 25$ a night to park on property. They dont tell you that you, as the only person in the room with a single vehicle, that it costs this much, and slipped an invoice under my door the morning of checkout. 25$ a night to park here while i stay in a room that i already paid for.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Double Tree By Hilton at the Entrance to Universal Orlando. Everyone was nice and made you feel at home. Rooms were clean and in excellent shape. Great location. Supplied the event well.

Everything in Orlando is over-priced; that said, this location offers an economical base for Hilton Honors members. Lots to see and do on “down days” between parks. I stayed here for 30k points a night, which went down to 20k after receiving back promotion points. As a Diamond member, I got a room upgrade with space for the whole family. The… Read more
Everything in Orlando is over-priced; that said, this location offers an economical base for Hilton Honors members. Lots to see and do on “down days” between parks. I stayed here for 30k points a night, which went down to 20k after receiving back promotion points. As a Diamond member, I got a room upgrade with space for the whole family. The breakfast is excellent, and very inexpensive as a Diamond. Kids loved the pool. There is a free shuttle to Universals City Walk - a really cool place to visit that does not require paying admission! Very close to Universal, International Drive, and all Disney parks. Note that there is a charge to self park( just about all hotels will have this). I would definitely consider this Hotel if you want to “feel” like you’re on vacation without opening your wallet quite so much. Read less
