The Orlando is a great place to stay and is in a great location on 3rd. Like most entry level luxury hotels they suffer from lack of maintenance quickly, due to the sheer number of visitors and lack luster management oversight. The entrance is small, but nice enough, then you walk into the elevator after getting your room key and.....yuck the fabric panels are stained and dirty!! Unacceptable not to have the fabric clean and presentable. Rooms are hit and miss, as some are much nicer then others in the same room category like their standard king. I have stayed here more then five times and have had to ask for another room several of them due to ranging room maintenance problems like stains on the carpet and street facing location issues which some suffer from intrusive outside noise. Overall the rooms are well designed, functional and most bathrooms are well done even with the small space afforded to them. You'll be more personally satisfied with your stay for business or pleasure if you can snag a promotional rate. The Churchill is always hopping with people and food is good if you don't want to venture out.
So what's the deal with the pool?? It's a plunge pool and not really functional for most people unless you want to just get your feet wet with a drink, so stay at the SLS if you really want to have a pool party. They would have received more bang for their investment if they put a large hot tub there instead, just saying.
