Cleanliness of the hotel could have been better. Breakfast could be better too
The breakfast was minimal, they had a few options every day, although the flavor of what they had was ok, we would have wanted more variety of food choices.
Rooms had a musty odor. Furniture looks new but rooms are badly in need of renovation. Smells like motel 6
Right in the middle of everything
The location was perfect. I was there for a trade show at the Convention Center, so was in very close proximity to that and a number of restaurants. Given that it is right on International Drive, practically every type of cuisine that you'd ever want is represented nearby. I'm unsure if all of the rooms are the same, but I had a one-bedroom suite overlooking the pool. I liked the fact that the bedrooms were in the interior so you don't really hear any activity happening outside at the pool or the hot tub. The hotel pretty much had everything: pool, workout facility, bar, continental breakfast, small sundry store - and if you need anything else, there's a Walgreen's within a 5 minute walk. The room was very clean on arrival, and bed made up on a daily basis. Also two flat-screen TVs are nice: one in the living area, and one in the bedroom.
Nothing that I didn't like - but the room was fairly straightforward. It's not plush by any means, but has everything you need. Only thing that was a minor inconvenience was that the nightstand has outlets built-in, but then it wasn't plugged into the wall outlet, and upon trying couldn't get it to plug in. Unsure why.
+Excellent location on the Internation Drive, close to the new Orlando Eye and Aquarium +Very good service from the receptionist, who called us to let us know our room was ready +Free parking +Great shuttle service to Univversal +On-site concierge for ticket booking
-Slow elevators, in need of replacement (but management knows, which is why they are currently replacing them, one at the time) -Gaming room with arcade was smallish and offers no value -Gym is way too small -We needed to rent a car, management made us work with a company located miles from the hotel, when there is one next door (but probably not affiliated with them)
Clean, Friendly good location on I Drive
