It's a pretty hotel, very nice staff, but you have to pay $17 to park and $20 to self-park in an uncovered, regular parking lot. We decided to self-park because we knew we'd be going right back out. When we got back I was in the bathroom and noticed something down the side of the bathtub that looked like chunks... More

We stayed one night for a Church convention. The hotel has large, clean rooms, good beds, etc. It is very close to downtown Orlando so it is a great choice for people with business downtown. It is also near the new Sunrail system, but check this out as it doesn't run on weekend or late night. We had room service... More

I did two nights here to hit the outlet mall before heading over to Tampa to catch a cruise. Due to the weather up North, I came a day early so added a night to my reservation. Normally, in other hotels I would have to update my key card on the second day (something to do with reservation numbers I... More

This is one of the noisiest hotels I've ever stayed in, and that includes Mexico! It sits on top of Interstate 4, so if you like that and are deaf, give it a try. Close to downtown. Room keys were iffy as well.

This was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Everything was great. The staff, the rooms. I only wish that the balcony was a true balcony where you could open the window/door and sit outside. But even without that, we were more than satisfied. Great hotel!

This Hotel is recommended if you are moving around the Orlando area, besides the Disney and Universal Studios Theme Parks, they have a small pool and the parking is free right next to the hotel. I have been twice in this hotel and in different years so I could have noticed the difference, they, for example, added a little gate... More

This hotel is considered to be in downtown Orlando, but I guess downtown Orlando is not like other downtowns in the sense that it is not clustered along with other major businesses (like typical "Financial Districts"). As I have said in my other reviews of other hotels in other cities, I usually go walking around after I check in, usually... More

Not bad area if you are looking to spend some time downtown as a single man looking for FUN in downtown Orlando. I had a bad experience right from the start, Dirty Bed some love stains on bed the fridge and the fridge smelled like a cadaver, rotten food residuals inside of it. On top of that I have to... More

Guess we are pretty solid sleepers. Heard a little bit in the morning, but not enough to wake us up. We took others advice and requested a high floor room. Forgot to ask for higher number rooms though, and ended up looking right out on the construction site. But again, was not a big deal.
