“Great Place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2007

My family had a 3 night stay here in December b/c my work offers close to member pricing for this hotel. We stayed in a King Studio which comes with a private balcony, mini-fridge, microvave, toaster, forks, plates, cups, etc. It is basically a small condo. Location is great, as it is right next door to the outlet malls and right across the street from Publix, Subway, and an Outback. Free transportation from/to Seaworld and Universal. Also, there is a I-Ride ($1 rides) bus stop right across the street. These run more often than the free transporation and allows you to be flexible with your time. If you want to go to Disney parks we found a trick. Just drive a couple miles down the road to the Hilton WDW resort and park in their parking lot for free. Then catch the MEARS bus that runs every 30 minutes from the Hilton to the Disney parks. There is no checking of room keys, etc. Depending on the traffic this resort is less than 5 minutes from the Hilton WDW. Front desk and concierage were nothing but helpful and friendly. I will definitley stay here again on upcoming disney trips.

Having just returned from my fab stay at HGV Club on International Drive, I wanted to share my thoughts. If coming to Orlando and staying on I-drive you absolutely must stay here!! The only niggle(in my view anyway) was after New Years Eve,until i left on the 4th Jan.07 they were still playing the same Christmas songs.ALL DAY LONG................. Still, a very small niggle at that...... Nothing else could i fault.Spacious apartments spotlessly clean. Surrounded by a beautiful lake.Staff very attentive and pleasant. Two lovely pools one being smaller and quieter.Will definately return,hopefully in the autumn of this year. Can't wait..........................

  • Liked — THE SIZE
  • Disliked — NOTHING AT ALL...........................
  • Tips/Secrets — CAR IS HANDY BUT I-RIDE TROLLEY IS JUST OUTSIDE MAIN ENTRANCE

Everything about the place was awesome. Room was simply beautiful. After reading other reviews I had high expectations, and they were exceeded. Staffing was great, location is very good. About the only thing I could find fault with was that the parking spaces are a little tight, but really that's being incredibly nit picky.

Great to have the publix close by. Very close to International Drive. Beautiful Pool, has activities for kids. Just something for everyone. A must visit.

Timeshare solication was well done...no high pressure tactics and very professional.

I hope I get to stay there again.

  • Liked — Room Whirlpool
  • Disliked — Parking spaces tight, but that's not really a problem
  • Tips/Secrets — Visit publix before you reach hotel and shop first.

We were contacted, and offered a special rate by phone ($110 for two nights) to come stay at this hotel and sit through a time share presentation. Since we live so close we went ahead and did it. We loved the look of the property and the staff was overwhelmingly friendly. The room they gave us had a kitchenette, so we went to get groceries across the street. It was all very convenient. We did not use the on-site shop or concierge desk. We did not use the pool, but it was all spotless. This hotel is super close to Dixie Stampede and a fabulous outlet mall. They had good security from what we could tell. I think that the regular rates at this hotel are great for something of its caliber in a city like Orlando. We have stayed at lower end properties close to the theme parks and at higher end downtown properties, but this is where price, convenience, and luxury meet.

My only complaint was the parking. Both nights we ended up parking near the entrance and our building was three down from the main building which, after walking all day at theme parks, was the last distance we wanted to walk. One night there was a guy in a golf cart passing by and he picked us up and dropped us off at our building.

We are staying there again for New Years's weekend 06-07. This time they sent us a schedule of events like ice cream socials and games, and a list of services at the concierge desk. I am looking forward to staying here again.

As for the timeshare presentation, it was actually decent. They treated us with respect as human beings and with respect for our time.

  • Liked — Resort feel, quiet
  • Disliked — Parking after 8 at night was VERY inconvenient.

Room was fantastic, hotel was beautiful, good security,
on-line room amenities say smoking rooms but there are none, they tell you at the desk its a non-smoking hotel but you can smoke on balcony, asked 3 times before we could get an ashtray
I did not reserve at other hotels because they were no smoking when I saw it on line, would not have reserved at this one if I knew
no menu's were left in the room, could not order lunch from the room, was told no one to deliver to room when we called
We have stayed at many hotels over the years 2 star and up to 4 star + this one had the worst service,

We made a quick trip to Orlando and picked this hotel on-line the night before we arrived. We could not of been happier with the service and beautiful rooms. My son left his gameboy games in the hotel room after we checked out. The housekeeping staff found them and Fed-ex them home to us.....we were very immpressed. Excellent choice.

HGVC is highly recommended for anyone, but especially families. We booked a 7 day stay (Dec. 13-20, 2006) using AAA rate of $130/night for a one bedroom villa. Full kitchen (there is a large grocery store right across street) and washer/dryer was especially useful. We had requested a crib in advance and it was in our room when we arrived at midnight on our first night. I had read about noise at this property, but we stayed on the top floor of building 3 and heard no noise whatsoever. Very very nice and would have expected to pay $200-$300+ for a room of this caliber.

This is a timeshare property, so we did receive a call to sit through the sales pitch, but since we were paying full rental rate we simply declined and HGVC never called or mentioned it again.

Bottom line, can't think of ANY complaints about this property (which is a first for me....). Every time our family travels to Orlando for Disney World, we will stay at HGVC.

  • Liked — 4 star hotel w/washer&dryer and full kitchen for a very good value
  • Disliked — Not enough parking spaces
  • Tips/Secrets — Get a room on top floor for best room view and least noise
