U.S. News Review

Located in the southeast corner of Walt Disney World, the Waldorf Astoria Orlando feels like a brighter version of its New York counterpart. You'll find similar design elements (like the infamous clock in the hotel lobby), and notable dining establishments like Peacock Alley, Oscar's Brasserie and the Bull & Bear Steakhouse are reproduced here. But this Waldorf Astoria property is decidedly Floridian, with citrus and sky blue hues accenting the decor and on-site facilities that make the most of the warm weather and sunshine. The big draw here is the 18-hole, Rees Jones-designed championship golf course, perfectly accompanied by the natural wetland backdrop. And the cabana-lined infinity pool is a great place to catch a tan. Meanwhile, guest rooms here come with 42-inch flat-screen LCD TVs, Egypitan cotton linens and the Italian marble bathrooms have separate soaking tubs. But for many guests, the highlight of a stay at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando is the customer service; visitors are blown away by the friendly, helpful staff. If you're a Hilton HHonors rewards club member, you can use or earn points here.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure

“This 2009 resort is located within the gates of Walt Disney World, but thanks to the 482-acre nature preserve that surrounds it, it feels far removed.”

Concierge.com

“The 498 guest rooms are formal and modern, with dark woods, plush Egyptian linens, and Italian marble bathrooms.”
Award: Concierge.com Editors' Pick

Frommer's

“Between the Rees Jones-designed par 72 golf course, the formally arranged adults-only swimming pool, the high-end Bull & Bear steakhouse, and the sink-deeper-into-slumber beds, this is the best choice of all the Bonnet Creek properties.”

Fodor's

“Rooms are decorated with understated elegance, using black-and-white highlights against rich beige-and-gold neutrals.”
Award: Fodor's Choice

Oyster.com

“Everything is top notch: The staff is extremely gracious, there's a beautiful 18-hole golf course just steps from the front door (one of the hotel's main draws), and the breakfast buffet at Oscar's is not to be missed — to name just a few impressive details.”
