"Good Quality Close to Disney Parks"
I stayed here on business while attending a conference at the Swan and Dolphin Hotel. This is up to the usual standard of a Waldorf with smart reception area and friendly staff. I had a room on 8th floor which was large and well furnished but not the best view. I'm title that the golf course view is the best. Very nice pool area and a golf course on site add to the amenities and also an excellent gym (just need a few more mats to warm down - one is not enough) There is a shuttle to the parks and it is about 10 minutes to Disney Springs so allows you to have some tranquility away from the parks. On the first night I had a wrap and a beer at the bar which was very good and one morning I had breakfast at Oscars which is good but at $43 rather expensive. Good business hotel and nice for a vacation if you want to be away from the parks Slough if I had young kids with me I'd want to have more Disney!
"Last minute trip - Great"
We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando on a last minute extension from a Disney cruise. The room was spacious and bathroom beautiful - tiled shower and separate soaking tub. Service was excellent. We were able to quickly send out our cruise laundry for wash and fold by the pound. Transportation to Disney was easy - either provided by shuttle or low cost and plentiful mears cabs. We ate by the pool twice and enjoyed our meals. The breakfast buffet was also lovely - I would be sure to select a rate that includes breakfast. We enjoyed our stay so much, we are planning a return trip for a long weekend.
"Came for business, coming back for leisure!"
The hotel itself is grand and wonderful. Right at the entrance you are given high-end service. Perfect hotel to stay in during a busy trip for a conference. I came here a month ago with my son for my husband's work trip and I'd have to say that it was one of the best trips I've gone on simply because of the Waldorf. The establishment is clean and staffed with the finest people who provide exceptional customer service. Day to day after returning back to the hotel, it was as if I was returning to my home. All of the staff made sure to become well acquainted with me and my family and knew us all by name. This alone shows how they truly care about their guests. At the front, Sammy was one of the valet and was always there to help us into or out of our car. He was very friendly with my son and is one of the few people my son was not scared of by the end of our trip. Neftali, I believe is one of the doormen, and you will never catch him without a smile on his face. His enthusiasm for what he does is infectious and he is the perfect to be at the front to greet you at the start or end of your day. Even after most of their shift has passed and they've been on their feet for hours, you will still catch these 2 men running to your car or to the door when you're approaching, just so they can greet you and open the door (which really is quite heavy!) Amir, at the front desk was the most helpful to me. He ensured all my needs for my room were met and even took care of my concern when I had thought someone entered my room. It was actually just "turn down service" and he was very calm while I was frantically yelling in the lobby for security. Coming from NYC, I'm used to employees being short-tempered, so seeing Amir handle the situation was commendable. I would 100% recommend everyone to stay at this fine establishment and see this world-class service for themselves. I am recognizing these 3 individuals simply because their dedication and love for what they do shows in the service they provide and when you're staying at the Waldorf, you should expect nothing but the best service. I was actually speaking to my husband now so we can return on our own during the summer. Cant wait to see Nef, Amir, and Sammy again!
"beautiful property; friendly staff"
this hotel adjoins the hilton and shares facilities. my hubby and i stayed in a room on the seventh floor w two queen beds. the view overlooked the pool and the fireworks from various disney properties each night. the pools are clean and warm and the hot tub is hot. however, unfortunately, none of the pools were reserved for adults. there should be one pool available for adults to lap swim. oftentimes, i had to swim between jumping children and large floats. food is costly, but there is a refrigerator in the room and a microwave available if you bring your own.
"Quick Pit Stop in Orlando"
Flew in to Orlando from the Keys and stayed over one night before getting back on the road. Our Suite was exceptional. We grabbed some apps and cocktails at the Bar in the Steakhouse which was also excellant. Had a great Golf course view from our balcony. I would definately come back here and stay to play a round of golf or 2.
