This property has terrible parking due to a tent they have set up in the parking lot for overflow convention activities. With that being said, there was no parking our first night, so valet said they would do it complimentary. When I checked out I had 4 days of valet charges and it took me 3 phone calls and finally a walk to the front desk to get them to remove the charges. Watch your invoice since they're doing this to others unknowingly.

It was nice and close to Universal. I did hope to take the shuttle but the times never lined up to when we were coming and going with the Rock the Universe Pass we had. The room was nice and spacious.

This was my 3rd time staying at this particular double tree in Orlando across from universal entrance and never had a bad experience until now. Me and my family were at the check in counter where there was a young woman. I approached as she greeted me. I then was asked about my reservation. Gave her my name, as I advised her that I had 2 rooms booked on the same res. She then proceeded to tell me that she didn’t see 2 rooms under my name. I clearly showed her my confirmation on my phone from my Expedia app. She then acted like I inconvenienced her with telling her I had 2 reservations. She walked away from behind the desk to then go to some back office. Never did she explain where she was going and how long she was going to be, because after about 5 minutes I got aggravated, especially after not being told what was going on. She never came back. I then approached another person at the desk who was having a conversation with 2 other employees behind the desk. Not a good look. Perception. They could have walked over to help the poor girl out. But no. I had to interrupt their conversation. Again, inconveniencing them. Horrible customer service/ hospitality. Finally one of the guys helped me but then also said the same thing. After about another 5-10 minutes he found my reservation. I then explained to him it’s the same res and I am requesting a side by side walk through room. All in all he stated since I purchased through a 3rd party booking site I should have called the hotel.

The property is nice and price is reasonable. The only dislike is having to pay for parking. This should be included in the stay fee unless you are requesting preferred or valet parking.
