"Clean hotel with purposeful amenities just a 5 min walk from Disney Springs!"
The staff at the Hilton Lake Buena Vista Hotel is a large, beautiful property. The rooms are exceptionally clean and the staff is friendly. On-site amenities include: an Avis rental desk; a well-equipped Business Center; FedEx; a 24-hour market; two gift shops (including a Disney store); several restaurants; two DVD kiosks; an arcade; and a gym - all on the first floor of the hotel! The two outside pools are clean and beautiful, and they are flanked by large hammocks which hang from palm trees. Disney Springs is a just a 5-minute walk across a beautiful footbridge. Like all tourists locations, simple things, like having dinner, can be very expensive, and taxi drivers seem prone to take advantage of tourists. Still, the experience of staying at the HLBV is wonderful. If you are going to Orlando -- with your family or for business -- it's a great choice.
"Clean and Friendly "
My husband and I, along with our two young sons stayed at the Hilton in April. It was for a typical Disney family trip. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. We really enjoyed the Easter brunch buffet which included amazing dessert options and the children were able to meet some of the characters. They had complimentary bus services to the Disney parks, although they only run every 30 minutes. The restaurant downstairs had special that children ate free with an adult entree purchase which was super economical for us. I didn't give them five stars, because the rooms were pretty small and the pools were just ok, nothing special. My favorite part of this hotel was the short walk and easy access to Disney Springs from the hotel, all you have to do is walk the bridge.
One of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. Reasonably priced , friendly staff , conveniently located walking distance to Disney Springs and a short drive to local restaurants. Rooms are super clean, and quiet, beds are comfortable.
Stayed at this property for two nights using Hilton Honors points. Overall, this was a nice hotel. Some areas of the property appeared dated like the pool area. Poolside chairs looked old and worn and the tiles were a little chipped. But, I can imagine that it's pretty costly and demanding to overhaul a large pool area like this Hilton had. Rooms were basic, but clean. Staff was very friendly. Good choice for a hotel near Disney if you want to stay off property. Hopefully, they spruce up some areas of the property soon, though.
A HUGE THANK YOU to the restaurant staff! FABULOUS pool-side entertainment, and outstanding meals. I'm a traveler with food allergies and the management & chef went out of their way to make sure I was safe!! (Pool-side Caribbean Buffet was OUT OF THIS WORLD!) This hotel is within walking distance to Disney Springs, offers shuttles to all the theme parks and literally offered all that you would find on a Disney Resort Property at a fraction of the cost. I will without a doubt return here.
