We had a pretty good time on our little weekend getaway. It was the exact location we were looking for, right next to Lake Eola Park. We were able to walk to all the downtown bars and restaurants.
We really liked the hot-tub. It was very small, maybe 3-4 person tub, but since it' such a small hotel (17 rooms) we were lucky to be the only ones using it at the time.
This is NOT a place for kids or families, or big people either. The rooms are incredibily small. The bathroom is a tight fit! It's similar in size to a cruise ship cabin. We got the queen size bed, but it seemed really small- smaller than our queen size bed at home. Next time we go, we are going to opt for one of their larger King size rooms.
It is right next door to Panera Bread. Wildside restaurant / bar was about 2 blocks away. Even Publix was only a few blocks away.
There is no nighttime security or staff. This could be a problem for people checking in late, although they will work something out to send you the key. I did feel safe in the hotel.
They had 2 people giving massages and spa treatments during business hours. We didn't get one, but it looked like it would of been nice.
If you haven't been to Downtown Orlando before, be prepared as to what to expect. The 2 times I've been there, they had quite a problem with homeless people, and this last time some of the homeless people were very agressive and vulgar in trying to get donations. That said, it's a great walkable city, and if you go with a group and some guys and some mace, you should be fine.
There are so very nice upscale bars and restaurants in the area.
