Waldorf Astoria, Orlando
This 2009 resort is located within the gates of Walt Disney World, but thanks to the 482-acre nature preserve that surrounds it, it feels far removed. Pedestrian paths and jogging trails connect the Waldorf to the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, whose amenities are open to Waldorf guests. What that means? In between amusement park visits, travelers head to one of three pools, a lengthy lazy river, or one of 13 restaurants, including Peacock Alley, Bull & Bear, and Sir Harry’s Lounge (all outposts of the brand’s New York flagship). The Guerlain spa and Rees Jones–designed golf course serve as additional distractions, as do the ample rooms, which are equipped with 42-inch high-definition LCD TVs, Blu-ray players, and ample bathrooms with soaking tubs, separate glass showers, and Salvatore Ferragamo amenities.
