DoubleTree by Hilton at the Entrance to Universal Orlando

5780 Major Blvd., Universal Studios Orlando, Florida, 32819, United States

The name is a mouthful, but it's an accurate description for this hotel, which caters to business-trippers and pleasure seekers alike, thanks to a location close to the Universal Orlando entrance and not far from the Convention Center. It's so close to Universal that some of the twin tower rooms offer views of its roller coasters, plus glimpses of Hogwarts. Rooms offer 32-inch flat-screen TVs, work desks, and airy blue, yellow, and white decor with duvet-style linens. A heated pool makes winter visits more fun, as do the just-baked chocolate-chip cookies offered in the lobby. Don't worry about noisy conventioneers—the meeting and convention facilities are isolated from the guest towers.
