“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2011

As a frequent user of 4* Embassy Suite a Niagara Falls Canada, this Embassy Suites also provides a complimentary breakfast and a manager's reception. The rooms are big (2 db rm suite), with 2 steel doors separate the living area and the bedroom. I particularly like the indoor view. The room's condition are OK except the bathroom seems needs to be re-renovate. The air-conditioner was quite noisy with the cover of air-conditioner losely screwed. I lived there for 6 nights and the service of staff are great and helpful. Compare with the Embassy in the Falls this hotel's breakfast was only average. Selections are: cereal, milk, oalmeal, fruits, potatoe strips, congee, sausage, bacan, omelet, pops, fruit drinks, tea and coffee. The pool is quite small compare to the size of the hotel. I had to purchase washing detergent with the ground floor gift shop for $2, while the machine in the laundry room (sold for $1) was broken. There is 2 mid size washer and 2 dryers. The machines were aged with 1 dryer occasionally not working. Despite the necessary of re-modelling, the environment was relaxing and the location was great and quiet. Elevators are fast, the most efficient that I had ever encountered in any hotel. It is very close to the Universal Studio and very close to a lot of restaurants and shops in International Drive. Pretty safe to walk around the street till very late of the night and you could find convenient stores, gift shops around the area. I purchased this hotel through hotwire/ expedia holiday package pricing, with complimentary parking, breakfast and wifi, this was a good deal for a family of 4 with teenage kids.

Room Tip: make sure not choosing the room at the 8th floor close to the laundry room, or every floor close to...

Stayed at this hotel during my recent business trip to United States. This was a very good hotel for business travellers. The hotel provides free internet service and has big spacious work desk in the rooms. Also the hotel provided free parking which was a concern in most of the other hotels which i had stayed in different cites in United States. The hotel is on the International Drive. Another good thing was the breakfast. Had ample variety to choose from. Overall a very pleasant stay and a very good hotel. Will specially recommend this for business travellers.

We arrived dubious after reading some very critical reviews.
On arrival we checked in to the third floor but due to my mums vertigo we needed a lower floor room. The front desk were quick to inform us they had no lower rooms but would do by the next day. This was no problem.
We were moved into a huge corner suite the next day, very big room. The room was not out dated.. It is what you expect in international drive (seeing as you don't spend all day in your room). The beds were so comfortable and made up each day, sheets change every 3rd day unless requested sooner. The sofa bed was also good and very easy to pull out. Flat screen tv in both living areas. Desk with wifi access. Fridge, sink and cupboard in the kitchen area. Bathroom was average size with bath/shower. But all extremely clean! No complaints here!!
We arrived during the managers reception (5.30-7.30) and you can have as many alcoholic drinks as you wish!! Any kind of cocktail too! They also have a popcorn cart and pick and mix too. Very nice. Staff were lovely.
Breakfast was amazing. Complaints about the queues on here previously are valid, however there are signs saying that the later you eat the longer the queues. We ate at 7.30am a few times and had no queue what so ever! Then also 8ish and 9ish these were some what busier but no more than 20 mins. It's clear to see why it's a wait because you have a cooked to order service being provided you can't expect to cater for a hotel that size and serve cooked to order food and not have a queue so I had no problem with this!
The range of food was fab, muffins, cinnamon buns, fresh fruit, porridge, toasts, bagels, potatoes, bacon, sausages, beef hash, French toast, pancakes, eggs (in every way possible), omelettes, cereals and juices.
The hotel offers a shuttle bus service to universal, wet n wild, aquatica and seaworld. Very prompt. They have a desk to book your tickets to use this shuttle and the staff are very knowledgable and can also give you vouchers for restaurants in universal.
There is a car rental desk (we didn't use this).
There is a business centre with 3 computers and printer and fax machine, for over 18s (although not always adhered to) and this is free of charge! Bonus!
The pool backs onto the I4, so is a bit noisy. But never busy (probably why) so the size of the pool is never an issue! Yes it is smaller than others but it is clean and maintained (I saw this being re painted and cleaned on more than one occasion). There are plenty of sun beds and parasols and tables. With shaded areas. We didn't book the hotel for the pool so that's always a bonus, I wouldn't complain about it at all.
The gym (I did not use) but looked great. Has 4/5 machines, weights and free weights, toilets, television, towels and fresh water.
Overall this hotel hits all the right spots. Management are clearly aware of these reviews on here and are doing their best to sort it out. Every member of staff acknowledges you and are always willing to make your day that bit better.
The location of the hotel is 5 mins from nearest I ride trolley and situated next to best western hotel and ramada hotel. Just behind UNO bar and grill.
I will definitely return to this hotel. Not a complaint here!

I stayed her for 1 night with my family as part of our yearly Florida road trip. Location is good and it is close to many restaurants (Uno is a 2 minute walk). We stayed here before and knew rooms would be spacious. They were clean and comfortable - no complaints. Our room faced the I4 but we did not notice any major noise. It is an older establishment and there are a few scuffs here and there - nothing major. They were replacing hallway carpets on our visit. The Managers reception was great - plenty of free drink and snacks. Breakfast was pretty comprehensive also. I found all employees to be very friendly and polite. For the price paid, it was excellent value. We will return again.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper - ask for a room at the front!

The breakfast bar was great. It took a few minutes to get throught the line but the made to order omelettes were good.
The pool was very small as was the hot tub but neither were crowded.
The rooms were decent but the bathroom was very small.
Staff was friendly.
We stayed here to visit Universal Studios. It was just a short car ride away.

I stay in Orlando once a week for business and have found this place to be most accommodating to business travelers. All rooms have a business desk to work at with free internet. This hotel has a happy hour serving complimentary drinks from 5-7pm with a great breakfast in the morning to get day going. Another plus is the free parking as most hotels on I-Drive have parking fees. Very helpful staff. Highly recommend hotel.
