Hotel was very clean and well maintained, very close walking distance to universal studio. We utilized the pool area and hot tub many times and both of were clean and relaxing. Would definitely recommend this property! I will be back next time in Orlando.

The first night was quite uncomfortable as the AC did not get cold. I reported it and they had someone come up to check it out. It was cold after that. The room had a strong damp odor. I reported that as well and noticed that it wasn’t so bad when we got back to our room. The bed was NOT comfortable at all and the pillows were filled with down/goose feathers (if I’m not mistaken). They got super flat. My husband and I woke up every day of our stay with back pain. Which is not good while on vacation!! The hotel has great restaurants, Starbucks and a cute ice cream/candy shop. Big courtyard area. Nice pool area. This property is located in the middle of some great shopping areas and restaurants. Universal Studios is directly across the street. Please be aware that Doubletree charges you to park everyday. Which we did NOT know about until we checked in. $26 self parking and $35 for valet A DAY!! Bottoms line is this… it’s a lovely hotel in a great location, but for the price you pay to stay, you shouldn’t be charged extra for daily parking and most importantly the beds and pillows need to be updated to something wayyyy more comfortable!! If you have. A sweet tooth, they give warm cookies upon check in and you can also ask for more upon request.
