Great holiday for Florida theme park enthusiasts.
We had a fantastic stay at the Doubletree, it's in the perfect location for all of the theme parks, with easy access to all from walking, local transport and shuttle buses.

Fantastic holiday at Disney World,Orlando
First time we had been to Orlando,and we couldn't have picked a better hotel I don't think.Only thing I didn't like was the smell of the water in the room....it has a musty smell :-( but I found out when I went to an Italian restaurant & asked for tap water,it smelled exactly the same,so it must be what the local water's like!Apart from that,it was in a nice quiet location,free transport to all parks & the fresh made cookies are just to die for!Would deinitely stay there again :-)

Florida with friends
Hotel was in fantastic location and had excellent rooms. Thomas cook flight was good but pricy for premium economy that didnt look much larger than the economy. Hotel was on international drive with a walk way to sea world/discovery cove and in close proximity to universal orlando. International drive had excellent transportation with the I ride outisde the door. Prob only draw back I could find was a little pricy to ge to downtown disney if you wanted to go out on a night for a dirnk $90 dollars return but international drive was buzzing so accomodated for it you alos have universals city walk within walking distance. Overall good holiday and would recommend.

We had an absolutely fantastic time in Florida, staying at the Doubletree in Orlando! There were 4 of us, my husband and myself, our son and his girlfriend (20 somethings). A super hotel with excellent friendly staff who really wanted you to enjoy the holiday. Loved the free daily newspaper that was left on the door handle every morning - a nice touch. Lovely room with king (enormous) bed that was cleaned to perfection every day with clean towels and pristine bedding. Huge widescreen TV and the most efficient air con system we've ever come across, and we travel all over the world! The 3 pools were excellent and supplied endless free towels. Eating at the hotel wasn't cheap but the food was good and the $20 breakfast was good value on our last day. We had free (intermediate size) car hire included in the booking but on picking up our car there was no way we could get 4 medium cases in the boot - we ended up having to pay $260 to upgrade to a larger car, just to acommodate our cases - not happy, but we had no choice! Having the car was a Godsend and we drove to the theme parks easily - all within easy driving distance. The hotel had a lovely, chilled, relaxed atmosphere, the staff were great and we didn't want to come home!
