This is a great hotel for something unique when staying near Universal Orlando which is just a short cab ride away. The common areas are very interesting. The tip for this property is that while the address is on International Drive, the hotel actually faces Universal Blvd (the street that run parallel to International Drive). If you are a Marriott...

In Orlando for a business trip - stayed at the Castle. The hotel was beautiful with all the old charm of a castle with the new brilliance of modern shimmer. The artwork on the walls is amazing and the view of Orlando from the rooftop of the hotel allows a great view of the city to include Disney’s nightly fireworks... More

As you enter The Castle, you can't fail to be impressed by the opulent surroundings of theReception and bar area.However, we felt that this was not the case for the bedrooms. Our room, 821 was classed as a suite. It was a large room with large furniture and a bed that was way past it's sell by date. I had... More

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Castle - I am thrilled they are part of the Marriott Autograph Collection now!! The only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars is the ridiculous parking prices. I get paying for valet parking, but $15/night plus tax to park in an open lot (not even gated) seems a little unnecessary. On to... More

If you have been to Orlando, there are hundreds of hotel choices...some good, some mediocre and some bad. The Castle Hotel is definitely on the good side and it's unique decor make it a #1 pick on my Orlando list. Marriott's inclusion of Autograph hotels is a welcome change from the mundane box of a hotel. This hotel is worth... More

I was looking for a pet friendly Marriott property near I Drive in Orlando and found a great rate at this property. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed everything about this property. The staff is super friendly and very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.

It has the decor of what you expect from an Autograph Collection hotel. Very easy location to get to, with plenty of parking, although they do charge you for parking, that is the one drawback. Great pool and the rooms were very comfortable.
