“A "Bloody" Good Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW via mobile

Convenient to the convention center, this hotel has the unique charm of the Autograph hotel series. The pool bar (and Nick A) is a major feature while visiting Orlando! Nick makes an AMAZING Bloody Mary and is a terrific bartender. Should not be missed!

spent 4 days on a business trip here. Lovely boutique hotel, very friendly staff. Lots of purple and silver décor. Loved the shady paths around the hotel with lots of beautiful flowers. Excellent location for attending events at the Orange County Convention Center.

Room Tip: saw recommendations to get a room on higher floor but since I am not traveling with family, not impo...

My wife, 6 year old daughter and I chose to stay at the Castle Hotel after a full day at SeaWorld. We were in Orlando to celebrate our daughters 6th birthday. I had mentioned this when reserving the room and it was brought up by the front desk attendant at check in. After a quick dip in the pool, we wandered down International Drive for dinner. Upon returning to our room, we found that the staff had left a birthday card and some (quite delicious) cookies in our room for our daughter's "birthday celebration". Needless to say, we were all quite impressed by the staff during our short stay. All were just as pleasant as could be.

As far as our room goes, it was just as nice as shown in pictures online. Clean and comfortable beds. Cant ask for much more. Not that we watched much TV, but the hotel did have DirecTV as a cable provider.

We thought the location was pretty good as well. Within walking distance (even with a 6 year old) of several restaurants and the new I-Drive360, home of the Orlando Eye. Parking, and driving, can be a little tough on International Drive during the evenings.

At 9 floors and only a couple hundred rooms, its a little on the small side as far as Orlando hotels go, but I would highly recommend it to anyone. Definitely plan on returning the next time I'm in Orlando. Thank you for a great experience!

Room Tip: Top floor, room 923, was a great location.

We picked the Castle as we are Marriott Rewards members. It's a great boutique hotel with lots of personality. Very clean, comfortable beds, nice views, great AC. Easy check in and out with the Marriott App. My only complaint was the $15 fee for self-parking. Just build it into the room rate and give a true cost of what the nightly rate was. Had a great brunch at the Cafe Tu Tu Tango behind the hotel- very good food, prices and artsy atmosphere.

We went to Orlando for the weekend to celebrate my daughters birthday . Cafe Tu Tu Tango recommended the hotel when we called to find a place to stay near the restaurant . We are so glad they did !! It was the perfect place to stay for our weekend getaway . A special thanks to Marissa at the pool bar .. She is a huge asset to your hotel !! We loved spending time with her and enjoyed her GREAT service !! We will be back !!

My wife and I stayed at the Castle Hotel for my sons wedding. Be aware the hotel will charge you $15.00 a day to park. There was no refrigerator in the room as listed on Travelocity. My son didn't check into his room before 2am. The wedding room was given away. Those are the rules but a phone call to the groom would have been nice.

Good Morning,

I would like to thank you for choosing to stay at the Castle Hotel. I do apologize if there was any misinformation posted on the Travelocity webpage. We do guarantee the availability of a refrigerator in only our Executive Suites. We do also have a limited number of refrigerators available upon request that can be brought to our guest’s room.

I do hope that this experience will not prevent you from considering a future stay at the Castle Hotel. If you would like to discuss your concerns with me directly please feel free to contact me.

Thank you,

Everything about our stay here was brilliant except perhaps the overpriced drinks we had by the pool.

Arriving from the airport mid-evening our check in was smooth and the staff very friendly and helpful. We originally booked for 3 nights towards the end of April but after spending an hour or so in the hotel we decided to extend the stay by an extra night. Our room was large, very comfortable and perfectly clean.

The hotel is perfectly located for access to many restaurants and bars and just a very short drive to many major theme parks.

Joe D, the valet/concierge was most helpful with advice about local eateries and bars and the information he gave was absolutely spot on. He even provide most useful information about our forthcoming tour of Florida.

We did not eat in the hotel as we rarely do, so cannot comment about the food.

In this area we think that the Castle provides good value for money. Thanks for a very pleasant stay.
