“Really Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

The Hotel was really nice, especially for the amount I paid, and the location was great; it was really close to the parks. There were only a few drawbacks; Housekeeping is not major, they do some linen changing but a two bedroom suite really needs more. The Hotel also does not offer free WIFI, which I thought was odd in this day and age. Otherwise they Hotel was really good, I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the lake, the view was amazing, we even saw some of the Universal fireworks at...

We have visited Orlando many times over the years staying in various accommodation.As for rental properties the Westgate was excellent and far exceeded our expectations.The staff were attentive every request was dealt with efficently and politely.A bonus was the swimming pool in Janaury it was lovely and warm enabling us to use it daily.
This property is centrally situated ideal for various restaurants,Wet & Wild,Universal & International drive.

We really had an incredible time staying at the Westgate Palace. We loved having a full kitchen which enabled us to cook our own food and hang out around the hotel after long days at the parks. The ammenities were great including a basketball court, playground and beautiful sitting area around the lake, perfect to have lunch by. We also really enjoyed being in such a spacious room with 2 large bedrooms and bathrooms. Living area in the middle was definitely a plus. It was also very clean. We also loved the location! Only about 5 minutes from Universal Studios and right around all the attractions on International Drive. Definitely a plus!
I would only recommend them get better comforters and its just a sheet and a quilt.
Overall, its an amazing hotel with friendly employees, spacious rooms and great ammenites. I would definitely go back here again!

We have stayed here in the past and really liked the rooms. However, this time was a different story. The beds are hard - very hard! We were in a king room but the bed was so uncomfortable, we traded rooms with our teen hoping for better beds in the twin beds. Nope - about 3 in the morning, i went to the couch and was able to get a little sleep. At 7 I called the front desk and asked to change rooms. They quickly complied with our request. The beds in the second room were only a little better. However, I was very impressed with the customer service in getting back with us immediately and allowing my husband to check the second room then offering to move our belongings for us. So customer service gets an A+ in my book. I am a little disappointed in paying over 100 per night and sleeping (somewhat) on the couch though. Another negative is they charge for wifi, which most places offer free of charge.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors facing Universal and you will see the theme park and sometimes fireworks

Good experience overall, except for some of the beds, that were a little bit worned out, and the staff is friendly, except for some guy at night at the front desk who is rude and not helpful at all. Other than that the location is good,minutes away from atractions, shops and restaurants.
I would definitely would stay in this hotel again!!!!
