Nice hotel and close to Universal entrance with assistance provided for purchasing tickets to the parks and getting there on the shuttle bus. Room was booked for 2 Queen Beds but was actually 2 Double Beds.

Nice hotel, great location for Universal Studios

We had a lovely few nights at the Doubletree. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is superb, walking distance to Universal and City Walk for dining. The only small negative was the loud air conditioner. That said I think it may be a general problem as other hotels seem to have the same problem. We would definitely stay again.
