Waldorf Astoria Orlando

An upscale oasis in Orlando
Orlando is known for its painstaking re-creations of landmarks from other locales — think Epcot’s small-scale versions of St. Mark’s Square and the Eiffel Tower — and Waldorf Astoria Orlando is every bit as luxurious as the legendary New York hotel it evokes.

You’ll see nods to its sister property in the Four-Star hotel’s prominent clock in the lobby, Peacock Alley lounge just beyond it and the gilded, opulent décor. But Waldorf Astoria Orlando adds Floridian touches, including a warm, family friendly atmosphere and an inviting pool.

While the sumptuous, newly renovated property offers easy access to Disney's Magic Kingdom (just a 15-minute drive), you’ll feel worlds away, thanks to the surrounding nature preserve, a stunning golf course and signature Waldorf Astoria service.

From the luxurious lobby to the restful poolside areas, everything about this gracious resort invites you to relax in style in between visits to the many nearby parks and attractions.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Even upscale resorts near the Disney theme parks can run the gamut from loud to louder. But that’s not the case here; despite its size, the Waldorf Astoria provides common areas that feel relaxed and thoroughly elegant.
  • The Bonnet Creek Resort area (where Waldorf Astoria Orlando is located) is shared by just a few hotels, so you can escape the crippling traffic that plagues other nearby spots.
  • A 70-acre nature preserve adds to the away-from-it-all feeling of this resort area. You might even forget that you’re in bustling Orlando.
  • The 72-par golf course was designed by the renowned Rees Jones, and offers links lovers the chance to view the preserve while challenging themselves.
  • Escape the fray with a visit to the hotel’s spa or the serene pool, where you can rent a cabana outfitted with a drinks-filled refrigerator, a high-definition LCD television and Wi-Fi.
Things to Know
  • Book early during the annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival each fall, when the Orlando resort offers a series of ancillary events for epicureans.
  • Meeting venues keep the resort hopping with conventioneers, so be sure to make restaurant reservations well in advance of your visit.
  • Restaurants and amenities at the resort’s sister property, Signia by Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, are accessible via a short outdoor stroll or through the conference center that joins the two hotels.
  • The quiet pool area will not excite young children, but they’ll love the lazy river pool at the Signia just a short walk away.
  • Waldorf Astoria Orlando is an official Walt Disney World hotel. Mickey Mouse-approved benefits include 30-minute early entry and complimentary shuttle to the four theme parks.

The Rooms
  • Reimagined rooms now have a modern design aesthetic. Marble bath finishings, glass showers and Nespresso coffee machines and tea pots help set the more contemporary tone.

  • A stay in a deluxe suite affords you nearly double the space and, for a premium, can guarantee you a view of the nightly fireworks from the Disney theme parks.
  • At the highest end of the spectrum, the Presidential Suite has a grand foyer, a living room, an office and three walkout balconies, with nearly 3,000 square feet of space in which to lounge post-park.
The Restaurants
  • There’s plenty of decadence to be sampled on the fresh menu at Waldorf Astoria Orlando’s Bull & Bear, from a parmesan-covered Pasta Explosion to a tomahawk steak the whole table can nibble on and an elaborate baked potato topped with caviar, Iberian ham and gold leaf.

  • Grab a hearty breakfast before hitting Orlando’s famous theme parks at Oscar’s Brasserie. An expansive buffet and a contemporary à la carte menu ensure everyone gets a satisfying start to the day.
  • With feather-inspired carpet patterns and art deco nods elsewhere, the new-look Peacock Alley is now an even more luxe and airy space for a pre-game beer or a post-dinner cocktail.

  • La Luce, the signature restaurant at the adjacent Signia by Hilton, pays homage to classic Italy through dishes such as linguini alla Vongole, hot Italian sausage pizza and Sangiovese-braised lamb shank. A feast for the eyes is also available here: enjoy an ever-changing selection of works by local artists throughout the dining rooms.
