The rooms were very comfortable. Had to turn the ice maker on and wait for ice, so the first few hours we were without ice. Surprised that the fire place in the lobby was not light as it was a very cold few days. Would have been nice to sit by the fire and relax. Do not go to this... More

Had a small business meeting recently and utilized the Hawthorn for sleeping rooms and meeting space. The staff and employees were great to work with. They handled every request we had quickly and with a smile. Everyone from the front desk to maintenance was very friendly.

What a good time we had at this hotel! The room and all other facilities offered were enough to please me and my whole family, during our 9-day vacation at Orlando. I agree with most comments I have read on this site, especially the notes regarding the excellent location and the outstanding treatment provided by Hawthorn Suites' staff personnel. I... More

The breakfast was adequate to start each morning. The manager's reception was okay, nothing great. The service from the front desk, to maintenance to housekeeping were all pleasant and helpful. We encountered two minor problems within the first day and they were fixed and taken care of promptly. The separate living/kitchen area from the bedroom was very nice. Sometimes my... More

The hotel's location is excellent as it is close to Disney and Universal. In Orlando, we have stayed at the Contemporary, Marriott Residence Inn and Sheraton Safari, and I would rank this hotel third in this group. Positives: price, clean, heated pool, hot tub, separate bedroom from sitting room and kitchen area, friendly staff, immediate attentention to needs including a... More

We liked the location so close to Disney and used it as a base. We found the rooms clean and quiet and the staff very friendly and welcoming.

Located in a safe clean neighborhood only minutes away from Disney! We stayed here for 3 nights, and found the Hawthorn Suites to be everything that we had read about on Trip Advisor. Suite was nice and spacious, with a separate bedroom. Very clean and comfortable, no complaints about housekeeping. Breakfast was your typical affair, but those with a sweet... More

This is a quiet remote hotel in the heart of Lake Buena Vista, situated almost perfectly between Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. This is a big problem if you don't have a car. Maybe I should blame myself for not doing enough research before we went, however this hotel was advertised as running 'regular shuttle buses' to all of... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff is very friendly . It is within walking distance to a good choice of restaurants for those who don't have a car and there is a concierge selling park tickets. The fitting room is small and have just equipment for aerobic exercises but it's ok for the basics. The free wi-fi... More

We totally enjoyed our stay at this great value, friendly hotel. It is within walking distance to a good choice of restaurants. We didn't have a car but the hotel arranged a very reliable taxi service. The shuttle bus was very old and not always on time - but free. The Busch Gardens shuttle was very good. You can buy... More
