My husband & I stayed here following a cruise & arrived at the hotel on Saturday evening, later than planned due to a problem with our rental car. We were checked in quickly & with no problems whatsoever. I had requested a room on the highest floor with views to rear of the hotel & was initially slightly disappointed to see our room had been allocated on the 5th floor. However, after a long drive from Fort Lauderdale we we tired & as it was only for one night, we didn't mind too much & went straight to our room. What a lovely room! Very spacious & with the most comfortable bed ever! Great shower with good array of toiletries, shampoo, conditioner & shower gel each in large dispensers which is so much better than those fiddly little bottles you get in most hotels. We just caught the last 15 minutes or so of the evening snacks & drinks & were pleasantly surprised to find that, even though the place was packed & there were loads of families with kids there, they still had a good selection of hot food available, including chilli, baked potatoes, mac & cheese & also free soft drinks & up to 3 drinks from the bar for each adult (they present you with a card at checkin which they stamp at the bar each time you have a drink). We each had a couple of glasses of the white Zinfandel wine which was delicious.
We slept very well in our king size bed which was extremely comfortable....and then went down to breakfast which was a lovely surprise. We expected to find coffee, tea, juice & toast & maybe some croissants. However, we were delighted to find a good selection of breakfast cereals, porridge oats, scrambled eggs, potatoes, sausages,, muffins, waffles (make your own) doughnuts, and juices, tea & coffee. The whole place was kept spotlessly clean by two lovely young girls, one of whom was patiently explaining to people how to use the waffle iron...whilst the other was trying to clean one of the waffle irons which someone had abandoned with the waffle still inside! They were extremely pleasant, good natured & efficient.
In fact, that was one of the things we both noticed about this hotel, the staff were all extremely friendly, welcoming & very pleasant. Peter on reception was lovely & is worthy of special mention here....hang onto him Drury as he is a real asset to your hotel. Thank you Peter & thank you Drury Inn & Suites Orlando for a lovely stay......we will definitely be back & will recommend you to friends & family planning to visit Orlando. Friendly, professional & efficient staff who make you feel that you really matter ...& a lovely, fresh, new hotel in a great central location. What's not to like?
