“Fine hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2006

I can't believe the reviews stating that this hotel is sub-standard. The hotel is clean, the rooms are clean, and the experience is above average. All personnel encountered were friendly and more than helpful. Plus, for those attending conventions at the Orange County Convention Center, this hotel is one of the closest.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2006

Just got back after another two weeks holiday, stayed July 2005. The hotel was just as good as the first time, friendly staff and excellent facilities. We used the Deli shop for snacks, sandwiches, pizzas and breakfast as well as trying the Cafe Gaugin for breakfast. The breakfast buffet was more expensive than your standard Ponderosa/Golden Corral prices but the quality of the food was in a class of its own. The eggs and sausages actually tasted like ones you get at home.

The pool area was for the majority of the time quiet, you could get a lounger at any time of the day. The hotel is mainly used for conference guests which was ideal for us, we prefer a quieter hotel. There are two jacuzzis which were very relaxing to sit in after a busy day at the parks.

There is a supermarket next door to the hotel which was handy to buy things like toothpaste, drinks, cookies, etc. Though drinks and cookies could be bought from the Deli if you wanted. There is a Denny's and a MacDonald's close by too.

There is a big multi storey car park which is just about 5 minutes walk to the lifts. There was no problem parking.

The rooms were clean and comfortable. Standard two bed room with tv and internet access (which you paid extra for). The rooms were quiet and you felt safe. The beds were comfortable.

Sea World is only about 5 minutes away, whilst Universal and Disney were about 15 minutes away. The hotel is situated at the South end of IDrive which is, in my opinion, the nicer end of IDrive.

Excellent hotel and I would recommend it.

This hotel has gone downhill in a short amount of time. We stayed here of July in 2005 and were very impressed with the cleanliness of both the rooms and facilities. However, after having just returned from a conference in June 2006, we won't be staying there again. Bathroom light fixtures were broken. Hallway floors will littered with garbage. Carpets in the rooms were filthy. The beds have ever been hard and uncomfortable to sleep on. Overall, it was an unpleasant experience that was undeserved for what we paid.

Adjacent to the Orange County Convention Center, this facility caters to the convention crowd and does not extend itself for its guests. Club level amenities are below average and are dated by today's standards. The building looks worn in spots. My room was sparsely furnished and housekeeping service was only average (On one day, dirty glasses were left in room, wastebaskets were not emptied). Wireless internet access is limited to hot spots within the building and is not hotel-wide. There is a fee for access to the exercise facility unless you stay on the club level. Pool area is OK, but not exceptional. Everglades restaurant is nice, market/deli area is convenient. If you have business at the Convention Center, I recommend you look elsewhere on International Drive, particularly if you have access to you own transportation.

It's true that this hotel is overpriced, but I thought it was a satisfactory hotel. Its location adjacent to the Orlando Convention center is great, and it has a very nice pool area and a very good (and quite inexpensive) buffet restaurant (Cafe Gaugin) along with a 24 hour Deli. The public spaces are impressive. The rooms are nothing special, but were perfectly adequate and clean. The internet service (ethernet in room, wireless in the lobby) was $10 a day and logged me out each time after a few minutes of inactivity. This was annoying, but a minor quibble. The parking garage in the back is a good walk, but was easy to deal with. I'd definitely stay again for a conference, but only at a discounted rate. The Red Roof Inn immediately adjacent to this hotel is probably a much better deal.

Super convention hotel and place I would even stay with the kids! The pool deck was great! The only one very minor detail -- the doors could be rigged to close a lot more slowly and quietly than the bang they let loose currently. Also, there could be "sweeps" on the bottom of the doors -- I could see plenty of hall light -- I don't know if it's a code thing in FL. Overall, it was a great stay !
