Great hotel.Comment of G. Ernesto , United States the 2016-08-08
"Luxury Resort Hotel"
Had the great opportunity to stay 3 nights at Waldorf Astoria in Orlando for a recent work conference. The resort is outstanding. While many other properties are good in the area, the WA really stands out for the quality and attention to detail. Another reviewer commented on the "solid feel" of the hotel, I agree and felt the same way. The rooms are really well appointed and extremely clean and comfortable. The sheets and towels were really soft and fluffy like you get at home. The food at the restaurants is top notch. All of our meals were outstanding for the freshness, uniqueness and taste. Truly great dinning experience. The Bull & Bear Steakhouse was my favourite The pool is very nice and great to relax and have fun. Overall I could not have been more pleased with my stay and highly recommend.
"Ticket desk at lobby"
SO the hotel is VERY NICE, most employees are great...but DO NOT BUY TICKETS AT THEIR TICKET BOOTH..it's a "3rd party" and they just ripped us off...I could have easily got the same ticket 700 cheaper at the park...bought a 3 day hopper ticket, and 2 day universal ticket for the 6 of us..lady charged me 4100...2 hours later I'm at the park...I could have got it for 3300...you call that a "convenience" fee'''...who wouldn't stand in line for 15 minutes for 700''...I stood in their line 15 minutes behind someone else...RIPOFF!! I'M upset at WALDORF for telling me to go to them...I thought it was a reputable place..but they operate as a "broker"..if you get ripped off like me..dont say I didn't warn you..!!
My family and I visited the WA for the third time, and split our Orlando stay between two Hilton properties. We had a wonderful vacation to Orlando, but strongly regret not staying at the Waldorf the entire time. As usual, the suite we reserved was magnificent. We enjoyed the in room espresso as well as the drink vouchers for being Hilton Diamond members. We were impressed w/ the craft beer and wine options available as "house" drinks. The pools are amazing, and the access to the Hilton Bonnet Creek next door is simply unparalleled. My husband an I have repeatedly commented that the trip to Orlando is worth the travel just to stay here, regardless of visiting Disney. Of course, during our stay we did visit a WDW park each day. The WA is extremely convenient. Its been my consistent opinion that I would rather drive to the parks myself than take the resort transportation, as it isn't as frequent as the transportation that we have grown accustomed to at the WDW owned properties. Service, amenities, luxury...this place still has it all!
"Very Solid Hotel Choice in Orlando"
Having stayed in multiple hotels in Orlando for conferences and family Disney stays, I'm very happy to put the Orlando Waldorf at the top of the list. Especially considering most of the Orlando properties are pretty standard and nothing to call home about. While Wilderness Lodge is still our favorite Disney park property. The Waldorf is by far my new favorite business destination in Orlando. I would also consider it for family Disney stays as they have their own Waldorf only motor coach/shuttle going to the parks every 30 minutes. A very nice perk. The Waldorf property is well kept up, very nice and has a golf course on property with a nature preserve area joining the property. They also have a very nice and spacious workout area and really good pool area. It feels very secluded from all the Disney traffic but is still very close to everything if needed. My recent conference was at the Marriott World which was a quick five minutes away. The entire staff was (valet, front desk, restaurant/bar, room service) fantastic, courteous, and very helpful. Even the evening turndown crew was exceptional and addressed any extra requests immediately. The onsite food offerings were also very good. Make sure to order the Waldorf salad which is always a great go to at any Waldorf property. Their jr suites w/balconies, pool, golf course and Disney fireworks view were also spacious and highly recommended. While it's usually laughable to see "resort" fees added, this one was valid and know you will see it on your bill. All in all, a very refreshing business stay at a property with a very attentive staff. Will definitely look to book the Waldorf for future business stays in Orlando. I would also give it serious consideration for family Disney stays as the accommodations are fantastic and would allow for a very toned down stay after busy days at the parks.
"My favorite hotel in Orlando"
The rooms, the service, the food, the pool, the ambiance, the welcomes, the everything. Orlando is littered with middle level hotels making the Waldorf stand out even more. It's sophisticated and super cool. If you want your stay in Orlando to be memorable this is you pick. We loved it.
