DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton at the Entrance to Universal Orlando
- What's Included
Stayed here for 5 nights. Great location to Universal, it is an easy 0.8 mile walk and is on a walking trail for most of it. The shuttle they offer is unreliable. The building is old but they have done some renovations but need to do more. The rooms are loud due to this issue.The staff was super friendly and helpful though and you can even buy tickets to everything around downstairs which is nice.The pool and hot tub are nice as well and both huge!The morning buffet is pricey ($22) for what you get and the grill is literally just an okay sandwich shop.Housekeeping did miss our room one day so that was a negative. Overall, I would stay here again for the price.
This hotel is centrally located near the theme parks. It is located between two freeways and there is a little bit of noise from them. The hotel is clean and well laid out. The pool was lovely. Car park available but was costly per day. Staff were helpful and friendly.
We booked two rooms for our family of four. The rooms were a nice size and updated and what you would expect for the money. The facility is nice and clean and the beds were great. We walked to Universal and it was a 10 minute walk. We took a $6 taxi back to the hotel. There are a dozen dining options that you can walk to as well. Millers Draft House was our favorite. We would stay again without hesitation.
This is a really nice, clean, modern hotel, just a short cab ride away from Universal Studios. Great option for a family on a budget that still wants full-service amenities. Staff is friendly and the lobby is impressive.
Nice clean updated property. This is within walking distance of the universal parks entrances, but not for all people...it's probably a little over a mile so keep that in mind. I think they offer shuttles but we did not look into them. We booked a Universal view room and was on one of the hugher hhonors floors which was nice to see all the coasters/rides and a nice view of the LOEWS Portofino Bay resort.Pros: clean room, spacious room. Bathroom was pretty large, plenty of closet & storage space if you're staying for a longer period. There's a walgreens a few steps away if you need anything. Breakfast in Pompano's is pretty good to be honest; worth the package. Omelet/egg bar, fresh fruits, and lots of healthy options. Nice large pool & hot tub, few arcade games for kicks. Hotel, wait & bar staff were all super nice amd helpful.Cons: walls were very thin. We were in a corner room with only 1 other next door but could hear literally everything from our neighbors. If you're a light sleeper, or plan to do a lot of R&R, I would not recommend this property. Also the first morning housekeeping knocked on our door around 11am even tho we had the DND sign on and we weren't leaving for 3 more days so that was pretty annoying, but that happens every once in a while.Overall great for budget and if you aren't going to be at the hotel much. If you can splurge a little more, the Universal resorts are worth it alone for the pools. Or try another Hilton. And whatever you do, avoid the TGI Fridays across the street at all costs.
