DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton at the Entrance to Universal Orlando
- What's Included
The hotel was close to Universal Studios...but a long wangly walk it is the closest to Universal parks but walk is a good 15 minutes! so we went when the free shuttle ran... basically 7a to 11am then return 430p to midnight about hourly... first day we had to take a taxi for $8 oneway because it was 1pm and shuttle wasn't going... had to get a ticket at tour desk to get on shuttle 24 hours in advance or subject to space. Pool was huge and so was the hot tub and it was a nice area! The food was good priced... the starbucks was expensive more than at Universal! The room was nice the beds were comfortable the bathroom was big. there was only one garbage in the bathroom and so we left garbage on desk. room was big!! I'd recommend this hotel...
I recently had a conference in Orlando. Staying at the Double Tree near Universal was overall a great experience. The grounds were neat and clean. I arrived at 11AM and Cathy at the front desk could not have been more courteous and professional. Even though I was early she was able to provide me my room so I could settle in before heading to the conference. I stayed for 3 nights and would definitely stay again. The one thing that could use improvement is the hotel entry. On more than one occasion I got caught behind cars stopped at the entrance (even though it was a 2 lane road). I think that the procedures need to be improved. Other than that inconvenience, I absolutely would recommend this hotel.
We enjoyed the close proximity to Universal. Construction was going on at this time which was understandable for minimal noise. For the most part we were outside of the hotel and it was a great place to rest our heads.
Hotel as expected. Comfortable beds. They were great about cleaning our room when we wanted-friendly staff. Friendly staff in the breakfast buffet area...we enjoyed chatting with Phun. In the restaurant/lounge, we shared stories and had a few laughs with Kathy and bartender Paul. BTW, Paul makes amazing chocolate martinis‼ Nice pool area; drinks a bit spendy for the small size. It was quick and easy to Uber over to Universal CityWalk and Disney Springs too. I would stay there again if heading to Orlando and the price was right😊
What a great place to stay. From the greetings at the front door , help with luggage and parking. Then pleasant greetings at the front desk filled with greeters and front desk clerks to help with check in. Help with luggage to room. The employees dress was nice clean ,all good attitudes. The rooms were clean ,very much like home,very comfortable beds. Very near to Universal Studios and Holy Land. We enjoyed our stay.
