This hotel used to be an Omni hotel, so the facilities are fine - but dated. It is a large hotel, and you must enter through a large convention space if you self-park. The pool is large, but it is flanked on one side by a chain link fence with construction dumpsters on the other side. (That sounds worse than it is, but landscaping is poor. I'm certain the dumpsters are temporary because they were redoing the convention space.) The coffee pot is strange (not a Keurig), and I remember that I wasn't impressed with the small flat panel TV.
Interestingly, a friend was staying at the Rosen property (Rosen Plaza) at the other end of the convention center. (Rosen properties flank either side of the convention center.) The Rosen Plaza is cheaper, but the rooms looked nearly identical. The Rosen Plaza also had a better location because it was easier to walk to Pointe Orlando and its shops and restaurants.
This hotel is fine if you are at an event at the convention center or if you don't plan to spend much time on the property. I spent the day in Disney, so my time at a hotel was less important. If I planned on spending time at a pool, I would go with a more resort-oriented property or the Peabody across the street. I had stayed at the Peabody years and years ago, and I wasn't impressed with it. However, I learned on this trip that the Peabody had been updated since my last stay. Had I known that, I would have booked it instead. In fact, I would recommend the Peabody over the Rosen if you are willing to spend a bit more but like the location of the Rosen on International drive.
Staff were friendly and nice. I would normally go to the exercise center, but I didn't make it on this trip. So, I don't know what it was like.
I would recommend paying a bit more and staying somewhere more interesting. This hotel, though, was fine for the price.
