Stayed here for 2 nights in early January with the husband and we really loved the place! Sure it's a bit kitchy and corny, but so is EVERYTHING in Orlando. The check-in was great, the staff was super helpful and friendly and even gave us an extra $10 drink voucher. The rooms were very nice, I just think the bathroom could have been bigger considering how much extra space was in the room. And the place did remind me a bit of a traditional Bavarian Castle-trust me, we live in Bavaria. We are Marriott rewards so we did get Breakfast the next morning and all the food was really great. I'm a sucker for homemade smoothies. And then-even though it was January we took a dip in their lovely circular pool and hot tub. The sun was out and we enjoyed lying on the cabanas. Was a great place and I would highly recommend and would go back again!
Tips for nearby-
-It was really easy to get to Universal Studios, straight north for 3 km!
-Don't eat at the 300 chains on International Drive. Head a little bit north and west and check out Stefano's Grill-it's family owned with great food and a nice wine list!
