The staff here has made the trip amazing ! Everyone is super helpful and very friendly . The only down side is the toilet is the loudest one I have ever heard!!! Crazy don’t want to use it at night , afraid it will wake everyone up!!
Our stay was for an extended weekend, to enjoy SeaWorld and both Universal Parks across the street. Our visit to Orlando was shortly after both hurricanes had past so initially there were freezer/refrigeration issues, ie. the 1st we attempted to order room service there was no ice cream because their freezers weren’t working. Nothing against the hotel because this was a problem throughout the entire hurricane area. Overall staff and experience was enjoyable. Clean rooms & updated facility. Very convenient location & the park shuttles are a life saver. Food at the hotel is a bit pricey, like any other hotel, but other restaurants are well within walking distance. The hotel gift store is another saving grace because there are items for purchase a little cheaper than the amusement parks. Another great perk is the fresh baked cookies offered upon check in, nice touch.
They have really improved this hotel since my last stay two years ago. Very clean and great staff. Aside from a Universal Hotel this is as close as you can get to Universal Studios. You can walk but it is a 10 to 12 minute hike. Easy the way there but can but difficult after a long day at the park. I suggest walk there and Uber back, only $6 plus tip. Well worth it, there are so many you never have to wait more than 2 minutes to be picked up. All in all this place is a good value and I recommend it for Universal trips.
My husband and I took advantage of the free hotel stay at a Hilton Select Vacation Hotel in Orlando. It is right across the street from Universal Studios and what a fun time we had. Universal bus picks you up and brings you back to your hotel. The hotel staff is top notch here...from the check in staff to the bar staff and restaurant staff..they made us feel like we knew them for a long time. Would recommend this hotel if you are going to Orlando. Free hot cookies at check in and free waters in the room. This is one of our top picks to stay. Thanks Double Tree for making our stay so enjoyable.
The front desk staff was very cordial and polite. Check in was smooth and efficient. The room was clean and well appointed; the housekeepers did a fantastic job. Common areas and elevators need some attention though. Food staff was very professional and attentive to detail. Will definitely be back.
Great location to the theme parks with a nice staff. The grounds were clean and modern. Other food choices were a close walk from the hotel too. The hotel was vibrant and it was nice meeting people from all over the place to add to its charm..
This hotel is well maintained and up to date. The corner room had plenty of room for our family of 5 including a pull out sofa. We did not get a change to use the hotel ammenities but the pool and patio look nice. The biggest advantage is that this hotel is inexpensive and less than a 5 minute walk from the front of Universal. If you are looking for a great hotel and don't need the extras that the Universal resorts provide this should be your first choice.
Great looking hotel. Staff extremely friendly always have a smile for you and try to do their best to help. Perfect location for both business and pleasure. Universal studios are just a 15min walk away and Disney parks a 20min drive. Will definitely come back
Attended a convention at this location and also booked several nights there. All aspects of the stay were great...from the event to the room. No issues at all. Very friendly and efficient staff. Free internet was a nice benefit. Clean facilities and very comfy bed. Spacious room.
Hotel is updated with a friendly staff and well appointed rooms. Everything you’d expect from this brand of hotels. You could walk to universal studios as the parking garage can be seen from the hotel parking lot. It’s also an easy drive to the I drive destinations as well.
