“Nice and clean.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Stayed for a couple of nights and found what I was looking for.

The room was comfortable and clean, wifi internet was free and location was really good.

The only downside was some noise from the elevator near my room (813).

Used only Carlson Club miles to pay for the stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We were staying in Fort Pierce and just went up to Orlando for the weekend. I had booked the room via Travelzoo a couple of months in advance and it was really cheap! We decided almost on arrival to stay another night and although we couldn't get the Travelzoo rate the hotel staff did do their best for us! We were worried when we realised that the hotel is just off of the Interstate 4 but the sound proofing/double glazing is very effective and we didn't notice it! The sleep number bed was huge and very comfortable. The jacuzzi in the room was lovely, although you can hear the jacuzzi in the room above but you should be so relaxed by then that you don't notice it! We wanted to eat in our room but were disappointed to find that there is a 25% charge on top of the menu price for room service, however, we simply ordered what we wanted from the dining room and went down and picked it up ourselves saving the 25% charge! There are lots of bars, restaurants and shops within walking distance (for the energetic) or a short drive (for the less energetic). The reception staff were superb and extremely helpful! I loved the added touch of an ice machine close to the lift on our floor (3rd floor) and the coffee machine in the room (great coffee by the way!), along with a fridge and a microwave made it even better! I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Well done Radisson Group!

This Radisson hotel is located right outside one of Disney's entrance gates. Traffic can be a bit crazy at times, but you can't beat the location. The rooms were a decent size and were always clean upon our return. The sleep number bed was a nice added touch. The nightly rate we got from Travel Zoo made it a steal. A bonus is that there are many restaurant choices that are within walking distance.

We just arrived home from our FL vacation. We began our trip in Daytona Beach and finished with 3 days at Disney and stayed at the Radisson Lake Buena Vista from the 24th through the 27th. We've stayed on grounds and off grounds and this hotel is by far our favorite of all. It is immaculate, housekeeping does an excellent job, extremely comfortable beds, rooms are good sized and no resort fees. We stayed in the two bedroom king suite on the 4th floor and I loved, loved, loved the king suite room. I cannot say enough about the cleanliness, the rich feel of the hotel and the comfort of the rooms. We also had a mini fridge and microwave as well as a roomy cabinet area and were able to have cereal, fruit, etc for breakfast before leaving for the parks. We kept our fridge stocked full of water and soda for our late afternoon break, it worked perfect. Normally upon return home from vacation nothing feels as good as your own bed but I just turned to my husband and said "I wish we could be sleeping in the king suite bedroom at the Radisson!" It really was that nice, we will definitely be back. :)

My daughter and I stayed at the Radisson March 14-18 for our first trip to Disney. We chose the Radisson for our hotel because of the price, ratings, location, and the fact that they do not charge resort fees!! We booked and paid online through the Radisson website and all that was owed when we checked in was a refundable $25. As a single, working mom and full time student, budget was very important to me and I was ecstatic to receive no surprise charges. The location of the Radisson couldn't have been more perfect. It was right outside of Disney gates and made getting to and from the resort super easy. Yes, there was a lot of traffic but that is completely expected and normal, not something to judge the actual hotel on. We live in Florida so we had our own car and didn't use the hotel shuttles. Although they were offered, I can't rate that aspect of it. Karla checked us in and was super friendly and helpful. I have a pretty generic name but she remembered speaking to me two days prior which was nice. I had requested an upper floor room based on other reviews and she was more than happy to accomodate me. The room was on the 8th floor and super clean and quiet. An added bonus, which my daughter loved, if you get a room facing the Disney resort, you can see part of the fireworks at 10 every night!! The housekeeping did a fantastic job and my daughter was so tickled at the towels our housekeeper, Elizabeth, folded into animals for her. Every day she would leave a note thanking Elizabeth and each night when we returned, she would have an animal shaped towel on her bed. Our housekeeping was excellent. We ate breakfast at Waffle House but the hotel does offer breakfast buffet. I only has room service once and although it was pricey, it was no pricier than any other hotel that you would order room service from. The food was prompt and delicious. The sleep number bed is a big draw for some people. I didn't care about it either way but my 9 year old loved it. The morning we were leaving, my daughter called the front desk and asked if she could keep the room key as a souvenir (it was fantasyland themed) and the receptionist said of course. Our stay could not have been more perfect. We WILL be returning to this hotel for each return trip.

This is a great hotel with great staff! We stayed here for 6 nights and thought the room was very nice and central to all theme parks. Since the rate we got for this room from expedia was only about $103/night we weren't sure what kind of hotel we would be getting but the reviews were great and we figured we will be out of the room the whole day at the theme parks anyhow so as long as it was ok it would be fine. But the room, hotel and staff were beyond our expectations and I recommend this hotel to anyone who is going for DIsneyWorld/Universal. The rooms were all fairly new, clean, and front staff was very nice and we even had dinner at the restaurant within the hotel and the food was good. There was also a shuttles provided to and from the theme parks, and Universal, as well as the outlets, so very very convient. We had a problem with the shuttle service on our first day which was no fault of the hotel's but the front desk was very helpful and called the shuttle service and dealt with it right away. So overall, great hotel and definitely deserves more than the 3 star rating given, and for the price paid!

The hotel is located in an ideal location if you are doing a "Disney" style vacation. It's located just outside the entrance of Downtown Disney and walking distance to many shops. The staff is friendly and the rooms very clean. I suggest not getting a room with a jacuzzi as it is actually in the main room taking up a lot of space. It's also a good way to ensure a really humid stay if you arent a fan of cold air conditioning. The decor is a bit outdated but the beds are comfortable and sleep adjustable. if you request a room facing toward Downtown Disney you may be able to see the nightly fireworks. Be aware that the hotel is at the intersection of two main roads i4 and Apopka Vineland which are two very busy roads, rush hour traffic and weekend traffic are a guaurentee.

Room Tip: Request a high floor corner room.

Dear ‘AlexPaz33’: Hi there ‘Alex’…thank you for taking the time to share a review! We are happy you were able to reserve one of our romantic Jacuzzi Suites as there are a limited number in the hotel! From your review, it sounds like you may have had some challenges with the AC unit in your room? We certainly understand the importance of staying cool here in Orlando- please know that our Maintenance Team is always happy to help assist our guests with the operation of the AC units. Additionally, you certainly made an excellent point about the traffic- it is inevitable, as it always busy here in the Disney area, so being prepared for potential traffic, is a great tip for anyone planning on staying in the Disney area! Once again, we thank you for your review and of course for staying with us! We invite you to return anytime and when you do, we will make sure your room is at the ideal temperature for you! Best wishes to you and many thanks!

With our warmest regards,
Radisson Hotel LBV Team
