“Great Location/conference center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Enjoyed the entire experience! Ran outside in the Morning and evening. Morning had less traffice and easier to run the road around the hotel and mall. The gym is very well equipped with everything you could need for cardio along with a nice pool. Great food at the conference and complementary breakfast. The personnel that I had encountered were very friendly and helpful throughout my stay. Would stay again if I had the opportunity!

We stayed here on our last night before flying home, as it is convenient for the
airport and adjacent to the mall, for last minute shopping. We had booked a Superior King, which was on the top floor: this was just as well as the mall roof dominates the view at the back of the hotel. The decor is smart, but it probably helps if you like green, as it is not so much an accent
colour as a full-on look. The room, 1155, was small but well equipped with a fridge,
coffee maker, sofa, large desk and comfy bed. The bathroom was also small but had a bath and
shower and a fair amount of storage space.
We ate in Crickets bar: the food was plentiful and quite good, and it was very good value with the happy hour - two appetisers, a burger, two beers and two glasses of wine for $44 inc tip!
The Gym is excellent: large, natural light, lots of equipment, good Koss headsets and at the right temperature.
Reception happily extended our checkout from 11:00 to 15:00, but we were not given any of the vouchers for beverages or breakfast that we should have been given on checking in. They had to credit breakfast after we were charged, and then they charged us again, although this was credited again after I e-mailed them when I got home!

My stay at the hotel was great! All staff members were professional and always with a smile. Crickets was a great eat and great drinks. Bar staff was amazing. Pool was always clean and stocked with towels! Bellman always smiled, helped, and answered questions when asked.

I recently spent a week at this hotel with my Family. The service was exceptional and the staff was the friendliest around. The Manager Mr Wolling, could not have been more attentive to ensure a positive experience for every guest!
I highly recommend The Florida Hotel as the experience and value was the best in the area!

great place to lay your head in a great comfortable room after a hard day of meetings, or shopping at the Florida Mall. Plenty of places to eat at the mall or in walking distance (if you like to walk) or stay in at hotel and enjoy great food. Great fitness room, great pool and hot tub.

I recently spent a week at this facility on business. The service was outstanding. The personal room accomodations were clean and had easy access to Wi Fi network. During my time here, I had experienced a variety of room settings and events. Each event was well prepared by the hotel staff. Any extras needed were immediately provided.

This hotel was amazing I would have given this place a 5 but the $18 fee they charge for the 2 nestle waters parking and a paper you won't even get. The staff is excellent very knowledgeable and friendly. Only downside it was further away from seaworld than I liked but nothing to really complain about. I will return to this hotel and I will also recommend
