A 10-minute drive from the Disney World parks, the Waldorf Astoria Orlando feels worlds away. Set inside the 70-acre Bonnet Creek nature preserve, guests can hit the links at the 18-hole golf course, designed by renowned golf course architect Rees Jones. After a day at the House of Mouse, sit poolside at one of the hotel’s two heated pools, one with a sloped entry for little ones. There’s a daily scavenger hunt for kids and child-friendly favorites available at the poolside grill.
Heartier appetites can visit the hotel’s steakhouse, Bull & Bear, or California-influenced Italian restaurant La Scala. Finish off the evening with a sweet treat or an espresso at Muse coffee bar. Parking charges are high, as is the daily resort fee, though the fee covers a lot, including welcome drinks, internet access, and equipment rentals at the golf club.
Rooms are elegantly appointed with linens and furnishings in creams, tans and dark brown woods, and all have Blu-ray DVD/MP3 players. The marble bathrooms have separate glass-enclosed showers and large soaking tubs. Some guests say the rooms are looking just slightly dated, but most agree that the hotel overall is one of the most upscale in Orlando.
