Based on the reviews, I was a little hesitant, but I had to visit Orlando for an unexpected funeral and didn't want to spend a lot of money. As a Platinum SPG number, I was able to use my points to pay for my stay. It only cost 3,000 points per night!
Upon checking in, the night auditor didn't really greet me or explain the layout of the hotel, but thankfully one of the valets stepped in and made it right. As many have stated, self-parking is $10 per night. I usually had to park a little far from my room, but I usually arrived at the hotel after 11:00 in the evening.
The room was HUGE. There was a separate living room with a table for two, a pullout couch, large flat-screen TV with lots of channels, two unique coffee tables, a pretty dresser/TV stand with a mini-fridge hidden behind its door, a desk with lots of easy to access outlets. On top of the desk was a pretty desk lamp and a coffee maker with Starbucks coffee. Everyday I received two complimentary bottles of water. The living room was also nicely decorated with pretty Florida-themed decor. The living room featured its own separate digital thermostat which could be adjusted in half degree increments.
The sink was well lit, had plenty of room (there were extra towels and room under the vanity) stocked with shampoo, conditioner, body gel, bar soap, and a body pouf, and located outside the restroom so people could brush their teeth while others shower. The restroom was HUGE. The shower featured two shelves which was nice for storage.
The bedroom also featured an additional flat screen TV on top of another dresser. The bed was divine. Super soft king-size bed with lots of soft sheets and down blankets. There was a separate digital thermostat in the bedroom and a balcony with two chairs and a table overlooking the pools!
Outside there was an enclosed twisting, tube slide that spilled out into a 6-foot deep pool. There were two hot tubs and another more shallow pool for younger kids. This pool had a volleyball net, basketball hoops, and fountains to play in. There was a bar by the pool near the beach towel checkout area.
Overall, very nice.
