The first time the Waldorf expanded its brand outside of Manhattan it was in Orlando, and while the original’s Upper East Side aesthetic was traded for Florida’s tropical colors, the service standard is noticeably higher than at most other Orlando luxury hotels. The Rees Jones–designed par-72 golf course makes it the golfer’s pick of all the Bonnet Creek properties, and the formally arranged adults-only swimming pool, the high-end Bull & Bear steakhouse, and the sink-deeper-into-slumber beds confirm the adult-leaning pleasures. If the price is similar to the Hilton, book here; for the same money you’ll get perks such as bathrobes, better-aligned views of distant fireworks, much more attentive service, and the same Early Entry privileges at the Disney parks. You may use the lazy river of the Hilton next door. Resort fee warning: $45/night.
