It's in an excellent position for all major theme parks & the hotel is only 2.5 miles from Downtown Disney & the complimentary bus services from the hotel are very good, with... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location - 5 minutes drive to Disney parks and waterparks and 15 minutes to Universal. If you don't want to drive there is a free shuttle bus service to the parks and the local buses stop right outside the hotel. We were surprised how spacious the rooms were - separate living and sleeping areas,... More

Quite a large comfortable room on the top floor proved to be nice and quiet and suited our needs nicely. Plenty of items to choose from at breakfast and the complimentary drinks and snacks provided several evenings a week were a bonus. My only criticism would be that the swimming pool is quite small and there are very few sunshades... More

This is our second holiday to the U.S., and we always stay at the Hawthorn. We were excited to see the old gang, and a few of the new ones. Special thanks to Antonio who was an absolute star. Bernard, Mayra, and Michael were an absolute delight. The breakfast was amazing and filling before the parks. The rooms are spacious,... More

We came on a 10 day holiday with Virgin and has been fantastic from entering the hotel on day 1. Great staff and very welcoming. The hotel offers a free breakfast each day which varies each day but gives you a good start to a busy day and two free beers and snacks Monday to Thursday early evening. Great location... More

We came over with Virgin, and this was our first time to America and found everything went smoothly. Room is just what you need, has all the amenities you want in a self-catering hotel - plus you get a free breakfast which has plenty of selection and varies each day! The hotel and room are always clean to a high... More

Natasha, Thank you for your wonderful review. You definitely pointed out many of our highlights. We are sorry to hear that your experience with the taxi service was less than stellar. You are in no way obligated to use any specific service, so next time you can chose someone different. We would love to host you again while in Orlando. More
