Waldorf Astoria Orlando

Lake Buena Vista, Orlando

The hotel

Part pit-stop for theme park adrenaline seekers, part luxury hideaway. The Waldorf Astoria has something around every corner to keep you relaxed and entertained. Take a dip in one of the pools, visit the spa and relax in the Jacuzzi, and even have a round of golf on the 18-hole course. Kids are kept busy at the kids’ club, and that’s all before you even think about those famous theme parks. Walt Disney World Resort is a short drive away, and by being a guest here, you get extras thrown in like extra magic hours and free transportation to and from the parks.

I have to be honest—I did not come here with very high expectations. I had a free night certificate to use and decided this was my best option. However, I was thoroughly blown away by the quality of service, the property in general and the many amenities it has to offer. I stayed here for my birthday and they made it very special. As a Diamond member, I was upgraded to a Luxury Suite and had an early check in because the room was already ready. The Luxury Suite is one of the best hotel rooms I have ever stayed in. It has a kitchen/bar, a living room, a beautiful bedroom, balcony and enormous bathroom. The only thing I didn’t like was the size of the tub. It should be way bigger given the size of the bathroom! The weather was excellent so I spent the afternoon by the pool and had lunch/cocktails. Cocktails were well crafted and delicious. Service was slow but still decent. I wish pool staff were a bit more attentive to guests not directly sitting at the restaurant. However, experience here was good. Bull & Bear was full that evening, so we decided to at Luciano at the adjacent Hilton next door. Dinner here was excellent and they made a VERY NICE birthday dessert plate for me. There must have been 4-5 deserts on this beautiful plate. Thank you for this! For breakfast, I had two restaurants to choose from or have in-room dining. I opted for in-room dining and they delivered breakfast to my suite. It was great and there was plenty of food. I will definitely stay here again during a future visit to Orlando! Read less

We stayed at Waldorf for my daughter’s 2nd birthday and it was one of the best hotel experiences we’ve had. Everyone made sure we felt at home, and the property is simply gorgeous. The rooms are spacious and the marble bathrooms are amazing. Thank you for every member of staff for making out trip unforgettable!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a corner suite that was quiet, very clean and comfortable. Every staff member that we encountered from check in to valet to coffee shop workers and restaurant staff was extremely professional, polite and helpful. They were all very nice and seemed genuinely appreciative and happy that we were staying at the resort. We’ve experienced not so great service from other places during this Covid pandemic but I felt the Waldorf Astoria took precautions but yet didn’t allow that to stop them from their five star service and I appreciated that. We appreciated the shuttle service to and from Disney. I’m unable to comment on the golf or spa amenities as I did not partake in those this visit but we did enjoy a nice meal at the Bull & Bear on property. This was a five star stay at a five-star hotel! Read less

I cannot begin to any how amazing this hotel was. We only stayed for one night, and I wish we had stayed longer. The pool was wonderful, the staff was so hospitable for anything we needed. We had breakfast in the morning and I am still craving the breakfast croissant every morning.

The service at the Waldorf is the best I have experienced. Thank you to Mary for helping us with our Disney park transportation and parking. The employees who work at the Waldorf are trained to offer exceptional service! From the valet, front desk, room service, restaurant and cleaning crew.....each was amazing.
