First things first. When they say the "entrance of Universal" what they mean is a 20 minute walk including a good jog across an 8 lane Boulevard because the sky bridge is closed.

First things first. When they say the "entrance of Universal" what they mean is a 20 minute walk including a good jog across an 8 lane Boulevard because the sky bridge is closed. It's not a super hard walk but if I had kids with us I would have been upset. The accommodations of this hotel are nice. The lobby and common areas were really nice. Our room was comfortable and reasonably clean. We were not able to have a king room though, and the reason we were given was Corona rated. TIP: bring your own drinks or have them instacarted. The hotel gift shop is highway robbery. The restaurant/bar is high priced also. Everything in this hotel is super expensive so bring your own stuff. There is a universal shuttle available but you have to sign up the previous day by 3:45. It's well worth it when you dont have to make that 20 minute walk back. If all else fails, an uber from universal to the hotel was around 7-10 bucks. We would stay again, but definitely would have instacarted some beverages our first day. Read less

Nice location and it was very clean but $20 parking per day for a huge empty lot quite ridiculous. Won’t be back because of the parking. Everywhere else is free and there is 6 hotels in walking discltance from yall

We are Lifetime Hilton Diamond status so we’ve stayed many different Hilton Hotels and this was one of the worst. No one wearing masks or hand sanitizer anywhere. Got a supposed upgraded room and it was dirty, smelled like smoke, bathroom was dirty and so were towels. It was Father’s Day when we checked in and there was a party going on at pool,… Read more
We are Lifetime Hilton Diamond status so we’ve stayed many different Hilton Hotels and this was one of the worst. No one wearing masks or hand sanitizer anywhere. Got a supposed upgraded room and it was dirty, smelled like smoke, bathroom was dirty and so were towels. It was Father’s Day when we checked in and there was a party going on at pool, smell of marijuana and trash all over ground. Only one little store open then ice cream shop was open at 8pm?? Never saw one person that worked here after we checked in. There seemed to be people wandering around not sure if they were even staying at hotel and never saw any security. Read less

Having a couple of days work in Orlsnfo required a hotel for a couple of nights. I was worried with the virus problems... but the Doubletree did everything humanly possible to keep us safe and to make us feel welcome and comfortable! Rooms were allowed to stabilize for a day and very few people were allowed. What impressed me the most is how each staff member showed us how grateful they were that we trusted them and stayed with them... they made us feel like family! Thank You ...😉 Read less

I stayed here with my family for a week and I normally don’t write reviews but absolutely wanted to this time! Our stay was great but one of the staff members named Ann Marie in security absolutely went above and beyond for me and my family! Her amazing positive energy and her dedication to make our stay great is definitely worth being rewarded! She always made sure me and my family was taken care of the best way possible she deserves recognition for her hard work I am the type of person to make a complaint when something is wrong but I am also the type of person to reward a good deed when someone does great! She is absolutely a wonderful person who is great with customer service and great with children I don’t know if anyone will see this or if it will even benefit her but I hope so she did a wonderful job and is absolutely making the doubletree by Hilton a great and wonderful place to stay and a great environment to be in! Love her positive attitude,manners,hardwork,dedication and her kind and warm heart to make us feel comfortable and our time enjoyable! Props to her! Please keep her around she’s doing great things for you guys! -Thanks The OBanion Family! Read less
