I lived in Orlando for 20 years and never knew this hotel existed. It is quiet, the rooms are beautiful and it is still near everything you need to get to. It is easy in/easy out in terms of parking, room access, etc. Because it is located within a residential community, you can take a nice walk around the area without lots of tourists. I didn't have a chance to check out the fitness center, but it looked nice. The only reasons I didn't give it 5 stars were that the woman at the front desk was not particularly welcoming (a bit like we weren't supposed to be there...), and the food prices were pretty extreme even for Orlando. It is also important to note that there is a dress code for the dining rooms, so keep that in mind if you are planning a trip.
