This hotel has the best location in Orlando. Right across the street from the entrance and still has a shuttle service to Universal. The hotel is very nice and the included breakfast is very good. Definitely I would stay at this hotel again.

Stayed a Sunday through Friday and a had great stay. I had a very large room on the second floor with a king size bed. Even though there was only two of us the extra space was very nice. The staff are very friendly and always said hello with a smile when we came in from back to the property.... More

Clean and modern but rather small rooms (think cabin on a ship). Perfect for those visiting Universal Studios. 5 minutes from Millenia Mall and Pointe Orlando, 15 minutes from Amway Arena and 20 minutes from Florida Mall, all 4 very easy to get to. Breakfast buffet was pretty good, eggs, sausage, buscuits, cereal etc.. Check in was easy and there... More

My family stayed for 4 nights. We stayed her to visit Universal Studios. This has to be the quietest hotel. I know the first night that we were there, they were full. We didn't hear anyone in another room, no traffic noise. We didn't hear doors closing or even water being run in another room. The breakfast was outstanding. They... More

I stayed at the hotel for 14 nights with 10 teenagers! The hotel is close to Universal Studios which is a good point, there's also a Walgreens, Orlando Ale house nearby and a Wendy's Restaurant right next door! Breakfast was good, eggs, bacon, muffins, some fruit, pancakes, cinnamon rolls... The front desk people were very kind and willing to help!... More

We got impressed with the quality of service. Everyone was kind and helpful. Breakfast is good, though they'd think a bit more about the environment (too much disposable items should create tons of garbage and it doesn't seem they have a recycling policy). Parking and wifi included!

We were going to Orlando & made package reservations via Orbitz. Got a nice, non-smoking King room with Holiday Inn. The hotel is very close to Universal, but you still need to drive or take the hotel shuttle to the park. Scored a top floor room, possibly because I am an IHG rewards member. Room was big, clean, and dark... More
