I was looking for a good hotel close to Busch Gardens and Embassy Suites was better than expected. The room was larger than I thought it would be and quite comfortable. The staff was excellent from the manager coming over to check on us at the Happy Hour to the front desk manager going to get us a luggage cart.... More

Warm smiles, friendly attitudes, and helpful are a few ways to describe this staff. I had a neutral opinion about this brand and this specific location; however, after staying at this hotel, I would recommend this property to any and all travelers in the area! Great experience that exceeded my expectations.

Nancy Garcia-Elba was so very helpful. we were here for a conference with the cobb center and the moffett cancer center. We wanted breakfast eggs made to order. Two of the cooks would not cracked eggs to make an egg white omelet and disagreed with us until Nancy came to help. Thanks to her!

Staff were friendly and rooms were maintained in proper order. Gym is small but it has all basic fitness equipment that I needed. Breakfast was a bit basic and it was very crowded at 8. Internet worked fast except when many guests tried to log on around 6pm to 9pm.

I would rate this hotel as a solid 4.5. My family stayed at this hotel for 3 nights just before Christmas. Our purpose for staying here was to visit Busch Gardens. The full breakfast and shuttle to BG were great. The size of the room was very adequate for our family of 5. The room itself could use some updating,... More

We enjoyed our week long stay. The shuttle service was awesome. They drove us wherever we wanted to go within a 4-mile radius. We used them 2-3 times a day and they were always polite and helpful. Especially Paul. Great guy!

The hotel has a free shuttle service within a 3 mile radius. It was excellent. We took the shuttle to and from Busch Gardens. The evening reception is lovely. We met very nice fellow travelers as we sipped complimentary wine and snacks.

We loved this place. It is very beautiful. After our stay at this location, we decided to stay at the one in downtown Orlando and was so disappointed that it wasn't the same.

A/C is quite noisy but slept with the window open so no need to use. the traffic is low since it's on the campus. Shuttle is very handy and responsive. took us to our meeting site each... More
