For years I drove by this castle hotel on busy International drive. I always saw it as a cheesy cheap hotel, which it kind of was. Marriott has bought the property and turned it into part of their Autograph collection - a funky boutique hotel. Cool artwork & chandeliers only get me so far though, so I was relieved to... More

I think I had the best sleep of my life at this hotel! I wish the shower was a bit more luxurious. Sadly, the showerhead wouldn't adjust. The pool area was an oasis. Great design & furniture. It was a great stay for a short trip.

My husband and I haven't stayed around this area to much. We frequent Orlando but not I drive area. We booked this hotel because we thought it would be cute for our girls to stay in a castle. It did NOT disappoint! We actually LOVE this place! The service was top notch! Breakfast staff was AMAZING! We had a package... More

We are Marriott Reward Club members who needed a place to say in Orlando for one night. We decided to bypass the regular Marriott properties and stay at the Castle Hotel (from Marriott's Autograph Collection). The hotel is definitely interesting. The decor is over the top---pink and purple with bling everywhere. My two little boys were less than thrilled with... More

I was so ready to like this place and admit that it has positives, however, my experience made this review solidly 1 star. I was here for a conference for 1 night paid for by the company sponsoring the conference. The room was already paid for, but, understandably, they asked me for a card to run for incidentals. They ended... More

This hotel was the best hotel I ever stayed in. Great pool outside with an awesome bar area. The closest restaurant called Tu Tu Tango's was one of my favorites! The staff was awesome, friendly and caring. Great location with plenty to do within walking distance. Hoping to come back soon. Me and my 14 year old enjoyed our stay!

I abhor Orlando but this place really helped me out. It was quiet well kept with a friendly staff and strong internet. I was charged for a bottle of Wine I did not use but it was promptly and courteously adjusted.

We booked this hotel through a promotion from travelzoo and thought we'd take a chance. This hotel is located within walking distance to lots of nice restaurants, pirate mini golf, frozen yogurt, mini mart and shopping right on International Boulevard. The hotel was decorated in an interesting way, but that stopped it from being boring! Extremely clean everywhere, really. Staff... More

My husband and I stayed at the Castle Hotel for two nights about two weeks ago. The hotel is in a great location close to everything. It took us less than 15mins to get to City Walk, we were able to walk to have breakfast at Denny's and take a scroll down international drive. The staff was very professional. The... More

Interesting place...the building is a cross between Cinderella's castle, a Tyrolean palace and an airport Marriott. Let's just say the theme is eclectic. Facilities are fine if not superb - nice pool, adequate basic restaurant and bar, clean rooms, good location - 3.5 stars. The service has more than made up for the eclectic feel. Virtually every single person on... More
