DoubleTree by Hilton at the Entrance to Universal Orlando Review

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 right at the Universal Orlando entrance and not far from the Convention Center. It's so close to Universal that some of the tower rooms offer a view of the Hogwarts castle and roller coasters. The lobby, restaurants, and fitness center had a 2012 makeover, and rooms offer 32-inch flat-screen TVs, work desks, and duvet-style linens. A heated pool makes winter visits more fun, as do the warm chocolate-chip cookies offered in the lobby. Don't worry about noisy conventioneers—the meeting and convention facilities are isolated from the guest towers.
