My wife and I stayed at the hotel for two days prior to my son arriving in Orlando. The location is VERY central to Disney and Universal. We traveled to theHard Rock in Tampa wich is 45 min away. Bush Gardens is about the same distance. We upgraded from a regular room to a suite for only 10 more dollars.... More

We recently stayed at the Hawthorn Suites for our 3 week family holiday in July/August. We were impressed with this hotel, which offered everything that we needed as our base for our busy holiday! Our room was clean and the towels were changed daily. There was a safe fitted in the wardrobe, which was big enough for a laptop/tablets and... More

I stayed here with my family for 3 weeks between July and August. The previous reviews describe the rooms and the tired looking but functional kitchen units. I can confirm the carpets have been changed and the decor is generally okay but not execeptional. The rooms do now contain safes. Staff were very friendly and the rooms were cleaned daily... More
