Whether you are a tourist or a business person like myself, this is by far the best located family friendly Embassy in Orlando.

We stayed at this property for a convention in October, 2011. The location was great for the convention. I walked to the convention center , it took about 15 minutes. It was a nice walk.

I'm glad you found time to partake in some of the amazing shopping in the area! There are two amazing designer outlets on International Drive, in addition to the Florida and Millenia malls. Some serious trouble to get yourself into with this much retail at your fingertips. I was just getting a early start on some holiday shopping this week... More

Free parking on international drive helps that equation too. The cooks here are better than the nice Hilton on I drive by the way. Bfast was the best! Hotel itself is a pretty good. Staff is very nice. Rooms feel a little dated and beds werent the most comfy but the price was good.

Everyone loves a good deal, but a “fantastic deal” is something else! I'm also a fan of our chefs; you can imagine the willpower one needs to not let the smell of freshly made omelets take a toll on my waistline after all these years. OK, they've had a slight contribution to my waistline. Not sure what you had, but... More

Everything was wonderful except for one grumpy bartender woman at the managers reception.. Made you afraid to go back for another drink! The location is perfect for attending a convention. Plenty of restaurants. Easy to get to convention if you cant walk by trolly and cheap.
