“fantastic hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

The Radisson lake Buena visa hotel, Orlando, is a conveniently situated hotel, near to all the theme parks. There is a Free shuttle to Disney parks. Downtown Disney is only a short pleasant walk away. So if you miss the last shuttle back to the hotel, hop on a Disney bus to downtown and walk back from there. But what really makes this hotel special is the quality and friendliness of all the staff, including the general manager. Everyone of them were so helpful. I cannot praise them or thank them enough for making our first visit to Florida so enjoyable. Top tip,The free chocolate cookies are very nice.
Although there are many restaurants within 5 minutes walk, the hotel restaurant offers good food at reasonable prices, not that expensive, as a previous reviewer had stated.

Room Tip: I believe the rooms on the 8th floor are the better ones, also you could ask for a room with a view...

Hello,we are staying at the Radisson right now and are very, very happy. The room is really great - and the sleep number beds were very comfortable. They have HBO as well. Great location near everything. We have a rental car and are able to get everywhere quickly. I would stay here again. I will say I was not impressed by the look of the buffet breakfast... but there is a McDonalds right next door that worked well.

Arrived at this hotel after a long flight, from outside it appeared tired, the location not great. Check in was easy, room looked ok decor again a bit tired. Retired after an evening out but was disturbed to find that the room was beside the elevator which was quite unpleasant being repeatedly woken by guests during the night. I did not see the point in trying to get a room change at 3.00 am. On check out I pointed out that I was dissatisfied with my room and the noise problem I recieved the expected expression of sympathy. Unfortunately I do not recall the room number but I imagine that similar complaints will have been recieved in the past about these rooms. The hotel was not particularly busy during our short stay so i feel sure better rooms were available. I have stayed in Radisson Hotels on many occasions and this is the first time I have been diappointed. I would give this hotel a miss but would recommend the nearby Sheraton which was cheerful and modern.

Room Tip: Keep well away from rooms near the elevators.

We stayed at the Radisson after checking out of another hotel as it was so bad. This experience couldn't have been more different. The front desk staff were friendly and chatty, the room was clean and comfortable and the location was brilliant, close to restaurants and Downtown Disney.

We had a problem with the toilet but this was sorted out by maintenance straight away. One morning there was a power cut in the area but the duty manager was in reception speaking to guests and explaining what was going on.

The Liquid Bar and Grill serves excellent food and there are various other restaurants in walking distance. We ate at Perkins and Uno while we were there and would recommend both of them.

We're hoping to go back to Orlando next year and will definitely be staying at the Radisson.

For the past three years my family of 5 stayed here. The rooms are large and the pull out sleeper sofa is comfortable. This location is close to downtown disney and the outlet mall. The staff here are friendly and appreciate return visitors. My chidlren especially love the chocolate chip cookies that are set out every day for guests. The pool has a cute little bar with a bartender who makes the best drinks. After visiting the parks the small pool area was a welcome treat. The only drawback for me was the traffic around the hotel but that would not stop me from returnign to this locationi.

I stayed in one of the Family Suites (2 queens, 1 king, 1 bath, fridge, microwave) and the room was perfectly clean. Maid service was invisible, the room was very clean. Our room was on the highway side of the hotel so we had minor freeway noise but it was far less than we've heard in other Orlando hotels. I passed this location up for years because most of the hotels right outside Disney's main gates are run down and filthy, despite being brand names. This hotel could have been anywhere - modern, well maintained, an absolute value. Walk to Waffle House or eat on site for breakfast. There is also a short walk to a grocer or other eateries.

The hotel shuttle has poor hours, a few times in the morning and a few times at night, but we walked across the street and were allowed to board another hotel's more frequent shuttle. Better to have a car for transport at will to or from WDW, but the downside of car travel is this hotel's difficult placement. Entering WDW property is extremely simple but approaching the hotel from the park is a problem. The hotel has only one entrance. This requires you to overshoot the hotel, go under I4 and UTurn. The stretch of road this two minute drive uses can be so congested that one return to the hotel took 20 minutes.

Offsetting the travel issue was a warm and responsive staff. We never had to wait for check in, check out, meal seating or requests. Well staffed and well trained, we would definitely use this hotel again.
