Had I not gotten a group rate for a family function, I would not have booked this hotel based strictly on price. That said, it was warm and inviting and the staff at registration could not have been more helpful. Our king bed room was spotless.
I took off points because there were virtually no drawers for clothing: one tiny one in each of the bedsides and 3 @ 14" x 12" x 5" drawers under the TV. Controlling room temperature was very tricky and I'm not sure I ever figued it out. There was a mini fridge and safe in the room along with an ironing board/iron. They were, at least, generous with hangers. Nice shower and VERY comfy bedding.
Ate breakfast in their restaurant. Very pricey. I got the breakfast buffet for a reduced price if $10 due to the group rate; normally $17.50, that included a served plate of ham, pancakes, waffles and/or omelet at no additional charge. As friendly as the server was (called me 'ma'am' more that I care to count), we had to reminder her to serve our drinks.
The comp breakfast at the Embassy Suites in Orlando put this one to shame.
The location is within The Domain shopping center. For my needs it was @ 20 minutes from every place I needed to be.
