Located on 482 acres of land, Waldorf Astoria Orlando is an exquisite, luxury resort. Several variations of guest rooms and suites are available; a Deluxe Room suits families of four or less as it provides two queen beds (or a king bed) and plenty of space. Guests who stay in a Waldorf Astoria Suite enjoy a kitchenette with a wine refrigerator, breakfast bar and a separate bedroom and living room.
Six restaurants are located onsite; The Clubhouse Grille is perfect for families as it serves traditional American fare. Going out for dinner without the kids? Astoria After Dark provides dinner and activities to children nightly. And while parents enjoy a game of golf or a trip to the hotel’s spa during the day, kids can spend time with Children’s Concierge, which offers activities like arts and crafts, relay games and scavenger hunts. Together, the whole family will enjoy the outdoor pools and private cabanas.

I really wanted to love it here. The lobby and pool areas are very inviting. The room was fine, nothing to write home about. It was a bit tired and probably in need of refurbishment. Service was certainly not up to 5 star. The most helpful employees were the car attendants. Cleaning staff was very good. We have stayed at 2 of their other properties in New York and Las Vegas, and they are far superior. Valet parking is a bit steep , at $37 a night and no self park available. I wouldn't stay here again. I actually preferred, the Hilton which is next door.
We had a great stay at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando. Olivia did a great job for us at check in making sure we had everything we needed for a great stay. Front desk would text every morning to check in and even give weather updates. Breakfast at Oscar's was very good every morning and Jeff did a great job with service there. They have a convenient shuttle to all Disney parks as well. May be returning in a few months and will definitely have Waldorf Astoria at the top of the list for possible places to stay.
