I stayed at this hotel primarily for the indoor pool. It was best place I could find with an indoor because my daughter wanted to swim and we were traveling in January and an outdoor pools would not work. The indoor pool and jacuzzi were great and if this is what you are looking for I recomment this hotel. We... More

I get more comments on that indoor pool! It's great and pretty rare in FL! I remember as a kid staying at hotels that advertised "indoor pools” but really they were just indoor/outdoor pools with a plastic carwash like separation device ...just not the same as a separate indoor pool. Your assessment is correct about our clientele in January; other... More

We chose this hotel for two reasons - its location and it was an all suite hotel and wanted the extra space this allowed. We were not disappointed on either level. Initial impressions were that the hotel was a little dated and was not quite as 'luxurious' as we had hoped. That said, we did find it comfortable and clean.... More

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review our hotel! Truth be told, the hotel is an older generation of Embassy Suite. Although we were recently renovated we don’t have the modern style that has increased in popularity. But with age come beauty and hotels just aren’t built with 8 story atriums and palm trees larger than most... More

This hotel is in a great location. All the good restaurants are on the same street. Two outlet malls are within 10 miles. The staff at this hotel are so friendly. Everyone that works at this hotel goes out of their way to be so nice. Someone is doing a great job at hiring! Very happy with this hotel.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel! You're correct, there’s no reason to skip shopping with the Orlando Premium Outlets North (formally Prime Outlets) and South; both within 3 miles on International Drive and on the I Ride Trolley route. There’s also no shortage of restaurant within walking distance to fit any budget. I won’t... More

I rarely write reviews but felt compelled to write this one as soon as we returned from our trip. I am a Hilton Honors member and stay in Hilton hotels regularly. I booked this hotel using points and am extremely disappointed in the cleanliness of the room. This hotel needs to be updated significantly and should not be compared to... More

I'd like to start by apologizing for your negative experience. I think it evident by the other posts on this forum that this is not our typical standard of service. We will address these issues with our Housekeeping Department with the goal that this does not happen again. We have earned the high rankings with Hilton Honors by consistently exceeding... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our property! It looks like you hit some of the main point for convention goers.

Stay for four nights while attending conference at the Orlando Convention Center. Very nice hotel, staff was very friendly and attentive.

I've stayed at this hotel several times, and I have never had a room that didn't smell musty. Maybe it is the chiller air conditioning system that they use that doesn't dehumidify enough (essential in Florida!). This time, I was in two rooms (I was moved from the first one because it had a strange mechanical noise nearby) and both... More

The room was okay, noisy from the interstate. The staff was okay. The extras that Embassy offers were not okay. It was if Embassy can charge a lot, but offer little in its amenities such as their evening offerings. Can not compare to the Drury chain which costs less money.
