DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton at the Entrance to Universal Orlando
- What's Included
Wonderful place to stay. Nice friendly staff and clean rooms. Would highly recommend it. (Note: Elevators are slow recommend staying on lower floors. AlsoFood and snack costs are marked up. Plenty of local markets to get snacks and food at a better price)
Everyone from housekeeping to bartender to bell hops were efficient and friendly. I stayed in one of the renovated rooms. Very average with almost no improvements in the bathroom. Large Flat screen TV, comfortable bed. Decent room but below what I would expect from a Hilton
construction all over hotel. Elevators full of workers and equipment so the wait was long, causing us to be late. Unbelievable noise starting before 8AM thru out the day, forget it if you want to relax or nap. Ice machine across hall sounds like someone is pounding at your door. Desk clerk rude when asked for a late check out. And to top it off Starbucks opened a bottle of ice tea and poured it in a cup when I ordered, if I wanted a bottle of ice tea I would've got one for less money.
Upon checking in, our room wasn't ready, meanwhile others got rooms after us. The people at the check in desk didn't seem to be working together. We were told that it wouldn't take long so we waited around, which turned into several hours, while we could have been in a park. Location is convenient because you can walk across the street and into Universal without paying for parking. The renovations do not look like much in our room; we stayed in the renovated tower. From the outside, the buildings look very outdated. The restaurant had mediocre food, but the wait staff was very nice.
Hotel staff and facility were excellent. The breakfast was exceptionally fresh with quality selections. The fitness center was equipped well with professional grade equipment. The hotel offered an excellent value for the rate offered.
