We had a fantastic stay at the Waldorf. We booked through American Express travel and really appreciated the beautiful upgrade we received for booking through the program and for my wife’s birthday/our babymoon. We felt that the Amex Hotel Collection benefit was great. ||Lourdes at the front desk was incredible, as was Kurt at Oscar’s and everyone we came into contact with. ||The housekeeping team did an incredible job keeping our room spotless. The daily cleaning and nightly turn down services were such a pleasure to come “home” to. They left so many little special touches for us like relaxing music playing when we got back, slippers, bedside water bottle and a nice glass, they brought ice, organized the bathroom vanities, and rolled up our phone chargers neatly for us. They even left me a bookmark for my book. We really felt like they went above and beyond to make us feel pampered. We really liked the gym as well! ||As other reviewers noted, there was construction on what appears to be a new conference center/ballroom. We only heard it a few times and it appears to be wrapping up. It also looks like they are working to remodel the lower floors and that the remodel of the upper floors is complete, and beautifully done. ||Again, we felt truly pampered and hope to come again someday.

This was my second stay at the WA Orlando. Both times have been at the weekend in January, at the end of a work conference in Orlando.||When I got to the hotel to check in (at a really very quiet period in Jan) I was asked if I wished to upgrade. I asked if my Gold status gave me an upgrade and was fobbed off - despite being entitled to one and despite it being low season. Nontheless, Ioffered a suite for a small amount more and I took it. ||My original room was booked as a high floor. I was given a low floor suite with a bad view. Straightaway I tried to connect to the internet. It didn't work. When I pointed this out on the app messaging service I was told to call the tech team to fix it! After 27 minutes on the phone (my foreign phone so effectively I was calling abroad) with no resolution I was cut off from the tech team. This was infuriating as I was wasting my time. ||I complained and was moved to a lovely suite on a complimentary basis where the WiFi worked (this was an acceptable way to deal with the issue, but to tell a guest that it is their responsibility to speak to the tech team is bizarre).||Throughout the stay, the concierge was extremely slow to answer the phone - if they did so at all. All the stranger for the fact that it was quiet during my stay. I had to resort to communication via App. Note to the manager - where were your staff?||Service at the pool was good - although food service was somewhat slow given there was about 3 people there.||No renovated room or the gym appeared to have any scales.||Breakfast buffet at the WA - service was ok and the food itself was nice, but smaller than first glance and somewhat dull. I was bored with it by the second day and woudld suggest they vary dishes even slightly more as it was exactly the same as a year ago. ||I ate at the Italian in the Hilton (okay, but a hotel italian menu rather than any authenticity in it being actually Italian) and the Sushi as a take away (good and predictably very expensive). ||On checkout, when requesting a printed copy of my invoice, none of my gold credits appeared and I had to request they were added on. It is very hard to see that this is in good faith given it formed part of my booking, no upgrade was offered on check in and the credits were omitted on checkout. I will follow this up with a complaint to Hilton.||I have a considerable brand loyalty to Hilton and was looking forward to spending the weekend there for a rest. It felt like a let down. I have let the staff know this so this review doesn't come without fair comment directly to them. If in the same position next year and considering the Ritz Carlton v the Waldorf Astoria, I will be in two minds, even if the RC is slightly pricier. ||The WA looks great, the renovated rooms are nice, service let it down, food was dull. Pool lovely.
