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.

We visited the Waldorf Astoria in Orlando with our two children. The hotel looks and feels very clean, crisp, modern, and the decor is beautiful. The restaurants are very nice, and clean with plenty of choice. The location is very central to Disney, with Downtown Disney a 5 minute drive. The pools were great for chilling after a few days in the parks, and the shuttle bus is a nice touch (although it could run more often). The only thing that let down our stay was the workmen who were constantly working on the floor beneath us. When we asked to be moved there was not the availability to do so. Other than this a fantastic place, and I would recommend. Read less

The hotel is just amazing and in a perfect location. The minute we approached the hotel from the roadway we felt the luxury feeling popping up. It has an amazing landscape with a golf course in the backside. The lobby was just perfect with the most friendly staff. The rooms are huge with a perfect view. The bed is toooo comfortable and the bathroom is spacious with so neat and clean tiles and accessories. We found everything we needed in the room and toilet with all types of toiletries. The food is so good and the service was just perfect. The hotel is too close to all parks. I will definitely stay there again and I do recommend it to everybody. Read less
