Waldorf Astoria Orlando Review
While it doesn't duplicate the famed Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, this Waldorf echoes the original with imagination and flair, from the iconic clock in the center of the circular lobby to tiny, black-and-white accent tiles on guest room floors. Rooms are decorated with understated elegance, using black-and-white highlights against rich beige-and-gold neutrals. Beds and linens are plush, and 42-inch LCD TVs have Blu-ray disc players. If you want a massage, you can relax at the Waldorf Astoria Spa. If golf is your thing, you can play the vast Rees Jones–designed course, which fills the view from the lobby, bar, or balcony rooms. The hotel connects to and shares a convention hall and meeting space with the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek.
There used to be only one Waldorf. This, the second one, opened in Orlando on the 78th anniversary of the New York titan. A world-class name means world-class service and amenities (how about having a butler?) and a world-class spa. In this case it's the Spa by Guerlain, with decor that recalls an Art Deco boudoir. Here a gracious valet pours tea for you, your slippers are sized to fit you, and your spa treatment is customized to meet your needs.
