The Hilton Bonnet Creek is a lovely hotel situated in the Bonnet creek resort and is part of the Hilton/Waldorf Astoria complex. We went with as three adults and three children and stayed in two adjoining queen size rooms. The rooms were big enough for our use and both had bathrooms with bath and shower facilities. Each bedroom also had tea and coffee making facilities free for use and replenished each day. The hotel leave you two bottles of water, but beware, they charge you $5 each for these. It’s much cheaper to pop down to Wal-Mart and buy your own supply. The room also has a fridge, radio alarm clock and flat screen television. Although we didn’t have much time to watch the television, what was on offer you either had to pay for or there were free view channels, but these were pretty dire, so we didn’t watch much telly, but then we didn’t go on holiday to watch telly. The rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and bed sheets changed every three or four days. The staff at the hotel were all very helpful and welcoming, especially the reception and concierge teams. If you travel with Virgin, you get free use of the Concierge room on the 16th floor, which has a free pool table, three computers, (although only 1 worked during our stay), a WII and a television that showed different channels to that in your room. There is free Wi-Fi in the concierge room and also in the hotel reception. If you want Wi-Fi in your room you have to pay for it. There is a games room with video games and a pool table on the ground floor of the hotel next to a Disney shop. The main restaurant is the Harvest Bistro, which we used every day for Breakfast as we got complimentary breakfast for everyone because we booked with Virgin. There is a wonderful breakfast buffet, with Cereal, freshly made omelettes, bacon, sausage, tomatoes, breakfast potatoes, or fruit salad, yoghurt etc, or waffles and pancakes or a selection of pastries, something for everyone. There is sometimes a wait to be seated for breakfast, but i don’t think we ever waited more than 20 minutes, usually no more than 5 minutes. There is also a very nice Italian restaurant called “La Luce” which was very nice but a bit pricier. However, yet again by booking with Virgin we saved 20% on all food and drinks bought in the hotel, that included the Harvest Bistro, La Luce and the Beech, which is the poolside cafe. The swimming pool is a fantastic lazy river running though two circular pools. The only problem is people reserve their sun beds with towels early in the morning, however pool staff will remove these towels if no-one uses them sun beds after 60 minutes. You are also allowed to use the facilities of the Waldorf Astoria hotel next door. Our children spent a lot of time in the pools; you can rent or buy things like rubber rings here also. In the evenings they show poolside movies on a large inflatable screen which you can watch either on the pool loungers or in the pool or hot tub etc. There a regular free buses to the Disney parks, however you will either have to drive yourself or use a taxi or one of the hotel town cars to get to Universal. (We used the town cars as it is a flat fee and you know what you are paying before you leave, if you use a taxi, then if you get stuck in traffic the bill goes up and you also have to tip the driver) Saying this, we used a town car to take us to universal and it cost $45 for 6 passengers, we got a taxi back and after paying the tip it was about $38. We mainly used town cars as even though they may work out slightly more as they are luxury cars and very comfortable. We had a wonderful stay in the Hilton Bonnet creek and if we ever return to Orlando we would stay there again. I would recommend this hotel.
