“Super Convenient!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Stayed here for a few nights before a cruise...really liked the convenience of the location. Right next door to the Premium Outlet Mall on Vineland with key card access through 2 different gates. the hotel was clean and the property was well maintained. It was too cool for us to use the pool but the area of the main pool was very nice - the 2ndary pool was undergoing refinishing so it wasnt open. Would stay again here again when we are in Orlando

We have now stayed at the HGV on I drive 5 times and have enjoyed our stay each time. We usually stay in the 2BR suite and enjoy having 2 large bedrooms with enough space in between for all of us to spread out. Publix is conveniently located DIRECTLY across the street so it's very easy to run over and get groceries for the week.

Both pools are wonderful though we prefer the smaller pool away from the crowds.

I personally prefer to skip the pool and soak in the GIANT tub in the master bedroom. It's a great way to relax at the end of a day at the parks.

Room Tip: As a reminder, the studios do NOT have access to a washer/dryer. I forgot that, the one time I booke...

I've stayed at this hotel for a week to visit some Theme Parks. The hotel is strategically located close to a Premium Outlet. It is a perfect place to stay if you want to shop. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. If your are looking for an "appartment-style" hotel, this is the place. You can cook breakfast and do laundry easily. We have picked a 1-bedroom suite. It has a 6-seat table that can be used for meals.

The property is well managed and everything was running perfectly. The staff was kind and helpful.

Room Tip: Building 5 is the closest to the Outlet mall.

Palm trees and two great pools create a relaxing enviroment. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. There is a screened-in balcony for morning coffee or evening reflection. The staff are efficient. The only down side is that the door between adjoining rooms are not sound proof. After staying at similarly priced hotels in the area, I am even more appreciative of the Hilton Grand.

We were visiting the Orlando area mainly for the Theme parks, and wanted a property central to Disney World and Universal Studios - this property was perfect.

We wanted an apartment style property, so we could cook breakfast, do laundry etc. It is a large property with seven buildings that surround a man made lake - which provides a lovely view from your room. It has a small grocery store/Starbucks; internet room (although wifi is complimentary); gym; games room with two pool tables; two pools; and an outdoor basket ball court (just in case you still have energy after a full day at a theme park!). Laundry facilities are within your apartment.

There is a premium outlet mall next to this property (open to 11pm), with a private gate to get there. There is also a large grocery store (Publix) to top up on supplies, which is also open long hours.

Staff on site are friendly, and they run a complimentary shuttle (electric buggy) around the site which we used after a long day on our feet. The resort also has a wide onsite activity program, for both adults and kids, which we did not have time to use.

We did not have a hire car, so tried a variety of options to get to the parks:

1. Lynx bus - although it is very cheap ($16 per person for a 7 day pass), we found that you had to take two buses from this property (Lynx 8 and 50) to get to Disney World transportation centre. Although the bus stop is right outside the property, we found that due to the need to change buses, this was a slow option taking over an hour. It does not go direct to Universal, but would be ideal for Sea World (bus 8 only). we also used the bus to get to iFly which was very easy and direct.

2. Resort shuttle - $9 per person return each day, it departs at three set times in the morning, and returns at set three times at night - which you nominate. Your can book one hour in advance at concierge desk. We used this for Disney World 20 mins travel time (Epcot and Magic Kingdom), and also Universal 30 min travel time. We found this to be ideal for a family of four, as the shuttle goes direct to the theme parks and does not stop at other resorts or hotels.

3. Taxi - we wanted to go to Disney World mid afternoon for the fireworks, and return late. The shuttle times did not suit us and we took a taxi. It was $36 there and $32 return. We left immediately after the magic kingdom fireworks, and it was easy to get a taxi back. Certainly provided us with the flexibility we wanted that day.

Just be aware that the Disney world site is massive, and that the Lynx bus, shuttle and taxi take you to the Disney Transportation centre (TTC), and from there you use internal Disney transport (bus or monorail) to get to the Disney theme parks. This is free but adds another 20 mins to your travel times.

We were pleasantly surprised by the comfortable suites and fine service we received from all staff. The grounds are extremely well maintained. I would pass on eating on premise and eat off site or buy your own groceries. Had lunch at the bar one day. Food was unremarkable.

The Most Magical Place on Earth
Orlando has always been my favorite vacation spot because it’s home to Magic Kingdom, “The Most Magical Place on Earth”. Walking through the many Disney Parks brings out the inner child in me. Last spring break when my family decided to go to Orlando I was thrilled. I was already happy enough being in my favorite city, but once we go to our resort, Hilton Grand Vacations Suites on International Drive, I knew that my experience in Orlando would be even more magical than usual. The hotel is made up of many different, beautiful Tuscan styled buildings. There is also a man-made lake with a bridge crossing it adding to the scenery. I have a big family so we stayed in two connecting rooms. The rooms were so convenient, each room had a large king size bed and between the two rooms there was a spacious kitchen and living room area. In the master bedroom there was a Jacuzzi and was perfect for relaxing after a long day at the Disney Parks. There was also a screened in balcony, which was perfect to soak in the beauty of the resort. The pool was my favorite part of the hotel; I could’ve spent every day of the week at the pool. The pool area was so pretty and the pool itself was very commodious. The pool deck would get crowded, but there was always a lounge chair available. There were tables and chairs set up around the pool deck so when you got hungry you could take a seat and order a meal off a menu with a wide selection of food. Everyday there was a new, fun activity set up by the pool. Some of the activities when I was there consisted of face painting, henna tattoos, and a zumba dance class. Also, every other night a projector screen was set up by the pool and a family movie was played. There was even more entertainment for kids outside the pool area, there was a playground and a basketball court. There was also a conference room with computers and books, a game room, and an ice cream parlor, which made the stay even more convenient. The location of the Hilton Grand Vacation Suites was great. It was located next to an outlet mall and near many restaurants. It was also only about 5-10 minutes away from the Disney parks. This vacation was one of our last spring break vacations as a family. Being in such a great environment I was able to enjoy amazing family time. I realize that even though I’m getting older I will always appreciate my family and all the special times we spend together. The Hilton Grand Vacation Suite may not be labeled as “The Most Magical Place on Earth” but in my book it is.
