Disney's Hollywood Studios!
There were a few things that caught my attention about the property from the beginning. First and foremost, as Diamond Hilton Honors members, our family enjoys free breakfast each morning at the hotel which is another cost saving strategy for our Walt Disney World Resort vacations. Like many other properties in and around the Orlando area, the hotel provides free transportation to the Disney Parks. Busses run on a schedule roughly every 30 minutes and service 4 hotels in the Disney Springs area. Speaking of the Disney Springs area, while we didn't spend time there during our short trip, this location is perfect for exploring the shopping, dining, and entertainment mecca that has blossomed in Disney Springs.
As you may have guessed from the name of the hotel, each room here is a suite. We had a one bedroom suite that was generously sized for our family of four. While I neglected to take pictures of the room itself, I'll do my best to describe it. Upon entering the room, there was a kitchenette and a dining area as well as a sitting area including a sleep sofa, TV, and chair. The bedroom was separated by a pocket door. Behind the door stood another TV and a King bed as well as the bathroom. The separation is fantastic when traveling with little ones as we could stay up after putting them to bed - that's if we had the energy to stay up after a busy day in the parks!
We truly loved our stay at the DoubleTree and there were some things we didn't even get to enjoy - like the pool as our stay was during a rare cold-snap in Orlando. I could see us enjoying another stay here in the future!
