“Just what we needed and expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Stayed here for 4 nights Thurs-Monday with a 2 year old and a 4 year old. Checked in at about 2:30pm and it was very smooth. Got room 802 which is on the highway side and you can also see the roller coasters from Universal. The highway noise could be bothersome to some, but it didn’t bother us. Room as clean and everything was working just fine. What I liked the most and great with small kids is the room layout. There is a sitting room with the pull out couch that also has the fridge, microwave, and sink, then a door that goes into a little hallway that has another sink. Then a door into the bathroom and a door into the bedroom. This was great because we could put our kids down early and we didn’t have to open up their room to get into the bathroom. We also put the ottoman in front the sink in the hallway so the kids could wash their hands whenever. Bed was conformable and pull out couch was fine for little ones but probably not for adults. Pretty normal cable TV lineup. Housekeeping was great as we always asked for extra towels and we always had 5-6 when we got back for the day. Pool was nice but did not seem to be heated so it was too cold during our stay. The hot tub was probably only about 88 degrees which ends up being the pool since its not really a hot tub at that temperature. The breakfast was very good tasting and adequate. I have stayed at numerous Embassy Suites and this one was below average compared to others. The food was good, but the layout was strange and there was not enough large tables. The only thing that changed each day was the pancakes or french toast alternated. Also at 7am they had no hot food or toast/bagels out or even yogurt. Everything you had to stand in line for. Later they would have an “express line” for some of the basic stuff but it was still crowded at 7am. Also everyday was the same fruit and the same selection of muffins or cinnamon rolls. Again the food was good and fine, but just not as efficient as other Embassy Suites.
Hotel was always very clean. Location is good. Close to I4 and walking distance to several restaurants and a Walgreens. (groceries and beer.) I would stay here again, but might check out the pricing comparison to other Embassy Suites that’s about a mile away,

This hotel is beautiful, clean, and has some of the friendliest staff that I've ever encountered in a hotel. They all had smiles on their faces and were happy to assist with anything. There is no restaurant in the hotel, which is fine because there are plenty of food options just within walking distance, though the in-suite dining service provides quite good food. It's a bit on the pricey side, but I've enjoyed my experiences there and will likely return.

I stayed with my family for two separate weeks in March. This is a great hotel! My only complaint is that the room carpets need to be cleaned. I stayed in two different rooms and both hand dirty carpets. The staff all over the hotel is friendly and their level of service is exemplary. Breakfast buffet and the Happy hour were excellent. Amine who cleared tables at Happy Hour and delivered food to rooms should be Employee of the Month. What a great, happy, hard working person. Room serVice food was also decent. We will stay here again.

A Great experience! I arrived on a Thursday and checked out on Saturday. Everyday the room was cleaned and a wonderful breakfast was waiting with excellent staff. The elevators were nice and you were able to look out as you ride up and down. Our group had no outside interferance. And our area ran very smoothly. As a matter of fact our area was cleaned daily and the head table along with the other tables in our room were changed daily. It was a very safe and clean experience. Yolanda

From check in to check out everything was great. Fernando checked us in and he was very pleasant. Later that evening I set up the sofa bed for my daughter to find myself playing musical chairs with the ottoman and chair trying to find a place for them in order to have enough room to open the sofa bed. I wish there would've been just a bit more room to get around once the sofa bed was opened. Also with the sofa bed open you can't open the fridge which is a bit of a pain.

Room service was great. Had my order up within the quoted time. The server was very friendly but I didn't catch his name.

Hotel is a good solid 20 minutes from Magic Kingdom's entrance which when you take into account the time you spend waiting for Disney buses and travel time when you're staying in Disney you realize this Embassy is definitely a viable option.

This Embassy Suites deserves 2 thumbs up. Every staff member we crossed was cheerful and offered salutations.

See you all soon!

This hotel is in an excellent location but lacks spark. It hasn't been renovated in quite some time by the looks of things. We found rusty bathroom fixtures, lumpy beds, popcorn ceilings, and a shower curtain with mildew. The a/c wasn't very efficient which was problematic as it became hot and stuffy at night.

The hotel staff was extremely friendly and attempted to fix the problems in our room (noisy toilet). We were provides coupons to various local restaurants, which was extremely useful. The breakfast and happy hour was nice each day.

There's a lot of competition amongst hotels in the area. I know there are numerous other hotels, including another Embassy Suites that's more modern.

The indoor and outdoor pool are connected and all it does is allow the leaves and debris to flow from the outside in. Everything else was good as expected. The interior of the hotel was beautiful and clean. The continental breakfast was delicious with many options to choose from.
