DoubleTree by Hilton at the Entrance to Universal Orlando Rooms

Deluxe Room
Standard Room


The Doubletree Hotel at the Entrance to Universal Orlando hotel may be across from the entrance to Universal Orlando, but it stands on its own when it comes to style. Instead of theme park kitsch, expect classy rooms with lake or park views and high-end amenities like plush-top beds and flat-screen TVs. Chef-driven restaurants like Carnivale and Pompanos Restaurant attract foodies while keeping room for familiar chains like Starbucks and Krispy Kreme. An arcade and heated pool heighten its appeal.



Even with a packed itinerary, guests at the Doubletree Hotel at the Entrance to Universal Orlando hotel always make room in their schedule for Starbucks (on-site) and the other restaurants for breakfast, lunch a dinner. For true local flavor, try Floribean-inspired dishes at Rio-themed Carnivale (think raw bar and succulent grilled dishes). And the Pizza Hut and Krispy Kreme in the Palm Court Deli cannot be denied.




Floor-to-ceiling windows showcase one of the hotel's best attributes: proximity to Universal Orlando. Rooms leave theme park kitsch to the theme parks, however, favoring grown-up furniture, bold contemporary prints in neutral tones of blue of beige, and sleek work desks and media cabinets. Guests unwind in luxury. Rooms boast Sweet Dreams plush-top king or queen beds, a 32-inch flat-screen TV and Neutrogena bath products. Doubletree Hotel at the Entrance to Universal Orlando hotel guests also access Wi-Fi for a fee.

Business Trip

Would recommend Fri 9 Oct 2015
The staff at the hotel were wonderful. So helpful and very pleasant. The room was clean and comfortable. The restaurants, gift shop, etc. made things very easy not having to run out for food or misc items needed. The bellhop would have a taxi pulled up with in just a moment of speaking with him. This hotel is very good and the price is very reasonable for everything they have to offer. I would recommend to anyone whether their stay is for business or pleasure.

universal studios hollywood

Would recommend Wed 23 Sep 2015
the location was great but they didn't have continuous transportation to the park and back. after walking all day we had to take a taxi back to the hotel which was only 5 dollars but the divers weren't all to happy to hear we were going across the street. we also took a taxi to universal to avoid climbing up the hill to get to it. the last tram they offered left the hotel at 10:45am. The hotel was great very clean and staff was amazing. however my girlfriends purse was mysteriously lost from our hotel room on night and ended up at lost and found. we didn't want to question how it got there but we were 100 sure we left it in our room. but over all it was great loved the hotel and would definitely stay again if they offered more transportation.

convenient location for Universal Studios

Would not recommend Tue 8 Sep 2015
The best thing about this Hotel was the location to Universal Studios. It is right across the street and you can walk to the parks. Also, the staff at the front desk were very friendly. That being said, the rest was not good. Thr bed was horribly uncomfortable with overly starched sheets and a down comforter that was so flat it could have passed for a sheet itself. The breakfast buffet was AWFUL! you pay $50 for mediocre food that makes you feel a little sick after, and while the waitress was nice, we did NOT appreciate the automatic addition on 16 gratuity to the check for a party of only 2. The topper on the cake of lackluster Hotels stays was the AC vent in our room. It was leaking water all over the carpet leaving a giant wet spot. It was also cracked open a bit so my husband looked inside and he was pretty sure the filter had not been changed in MONTHS. THERE is a Holiday Inn across the street where we will be staying at next time.

2 nights Universal Orlando Trip

Would recommend Sun 9 Aug 2015
The hotel is a 15 minute walk from Universal Orlando. The property is kinda dated but ok. Property ground is huge with 3 restaurants in house. If you are looking for other places to eat Burger king, Golden corral, Walgreens and a bar is close, a 5 minute walk.
