“I am glad I chose this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2010

This was a great choice that I made while looking to stay for a week. I selected it based on the reviews of other travellers, and I am glad I chose it. The rooms are bigger and nicer than many other hotels where I stayed, including some pricey ones. My kids had enough room to play around in the suite.
We had a suite. the kitchen was sufficiently stocked with cooking pot and pans, cutleries, and dinnerware.
The staff were very friendly. Room service was spotless. Upon checking in I noticed the refigerator was not cooling properly. Once I called the front desk, I had a technician working on it within 15 minutes, and he got it working in another few minutes. We used the laundry room, and the room as well as the appliances were very clean.
The breakfast was really great. There was a different menu every morning, and the food was really good.
I did not use the free shuttle, so can't say anything about it. We did not go to the pool or the fitness center (had enough exercise walking in the Disney parks).
The location is great. The hotel is very close to the disney parks, as well as seaworld. Also, there are plenty of dining places close by. Some are even walkable.

The most fabulous hotel. Well placed - it's only 15 minutes walk from goodness knows how many restaurants. The hotel offers to collect your grocery shopping FREE from the supermarket - just put your list into reception. Spacious room - with large fridge/freezer and ice maker. Dish washer (all detergent supplied by hotel) plenty of towels (for the room and also the pool. Super comfy big beds. Many tv channels. Now the breakfast, bearing in mind THIS IS FREE!!! Different every day - fruit, yoghurt, eggs, sausage, hash browns, pancakes, waffles, toast, bagels, juice, tea, coffee, hot chocolate. This will save you a fortune. Monday thru Thursday FREE wine/beer evening - a nice way to just sit for a moment in the air condtioned lobby and just chat with other guests. Free shuttles to Disney, Sea World & Universal. Pool great and hot tub too. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. We were made to feel so welcome. Thankyou Jason - you are the man!!!!

These suites were ideally located, all major parks, good range of restaurants, supermarkets, shopping outlet and the I4 to further afield destinations (Kennedy, Florida Mall and coast) all within easy driving distance. The suites were well equipped and it was nice to have a bit more extra space than just a hotel bedroom. The kitchen (with full sized fridge) enabled us to make up picnics for days out. There was also free Wifi, free parking, outdoor swimming pool and a laundry room. One small thing missing was a safe in the room which would have been easier than using a safety deposit box.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2010

My family and I stayed in this hotel for two weeks in August. The suites are a really good size with two double beds in the bedroom and a pull out double bed in the living area. The beds were so comfortable probably the best hotel beds I have stayed in. The cleaning staff were excellent at keeping our very messy room (we have two teenagers!) clean and tidy. We felt all areas of the hotel were clean. We found all of the staff to be really helpful and very friendly. If I had to make a criticism it would be that the pool was a bit on the small side, but then who goes to Florida to sit by the hotel pool? The location is good just far enough away from all the madness of I drive, but in easy reach of shops and restaurants, although you may struggle without a car. I would recommend the Olive Garden nearby if you like pasta but there are lots of places to choose from. I would definitely stay at the Hawthorn Suites again and would have no hesitation in recommending this place to a friend.

We too read all the good reviews and were not disappointed. Great location close to everything (we did have our own car though). Quiet area so no worries about noise to keep you awake, even thunderstorms were not heard in room. Room was spacious for our family of three , bathroom set up is great with vanity in seperate area. Having a kitchen was great although we did not cook in our room, stocked up on a few basic groceries and water which we froze to bring to the parks the next day. Breakfest was ok, they should switch up the selection a little more but to get you up and on your way to the parks it was fine. We only used the pool one on our first day (the only day we had extra time!) and yes it was a little warm they should consider cooling it, but for a quick dip it was fine. Twice we came back to the room and needed more towels, a quick call to the front desk and the towels were quickly delivered. Used the laundry facilities too which is great to have, hung up the clothes in the room and they were dry the next morning! Overall we were very pleased with our stay and the price and location were great! Used our Wyndham points too!

We read the reviews and were excited about staying at HS, and were very disappointed with our stay. Here are the reasons:

1. Not as clean as we would like.
2. No full set of dishes/silverware.
3. Some television channels did not work.
4. Water pressure very low.
5. Breakfast not very good.
6. Pool water extremely warm! Not very refreshing after a hot day at the parks...
7. Restaurants not very close - too far to walk with 2 young children with the heat and with the rain!
8. Free shuttle to park at VERY limited times.
9. Hotel staff not very accomodating.

I'm not quite sure why this hotel gets such good reviews. I suppose if you have your own car it would be easier to get around, however...

The Hawthorn Suites in Lake Buena Vista was located in a GREAT area!!! There were restaurants right down the block that you could walk to or places all over the main drag to drive to. The hotel room has a full fride/freezer in it and there was a grocery store located down the road so we stocked up on a few items to keep in the room. The room was spacious and comfy! We were just a hop skip and a jump from the parks which made it super easy to get to where we wanted to go which in our case were the Disney parks! If you want enough space for a group of people for a great price that is located in a great area then there is no question you need to pick this place!
