“OK for an Embassy Suites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

I'd really give this 3 1/2 stars if I could. My room was fine. The lobby was fine. I have been in nicer Embassy Suites. I think this one needs a bit of freshening up. I fear that it is understaffed. When I checked in there was one person working the front desk with about 6 guests waiting. The breakfast area was kept clean but the food was not replaced often enough. At the busy 7am start (they actually serve a bit earlier) the eggs were all gone and were not replaced in the 15 minutes I was there. Eggs are a bit of a staple. I didn't think I had time to wait in the custom order station. I saw one chef working that station and one poor lady scrambling to do everything else - bus the tables, refill the coffee, bring out clean plates, etc. Parking is plentiful and free. If you are going to the convention center, note that there is an Embassy Suites a bit closer. This one on Jamaica Court is a bit further north but good for easy access to I-4 on Sand Lake Rd.

Just had 3 nites here Sept 16 to 19th. Cannot fault the hotel at all. Great suite comfy beds, ample bathroom space, especially if like me your wife loves getting ready. Theres an extra sink area for your male grooming. Fantastic buffet breakfast included, which has all the favourites. And, a wonderful gentleman making made to order omelettes. And, if all this isn't good enuff, there is a managers special reception from 5.30-7.30 with free drinks. Phewww, if all this isn't good enuff for ya, then feel free to stay somewhere else. A MASSIVE THANX TO ALL THE STAFF for making my holiday get off to a fab start. Murray & Michelle. Scotland.

Let me start off by saying that I almost exclusively stay at Hilton hotels, for business and pleasure, having said that, this property has recently gone through a renovation, and they did it right, the rooms are still ok, classic Hilton set up. Two rooms, never had a bad one, have stayed here multiple times over the years. Cooked to order breakfast is outstanding, chef is a great guy, always singing or telling stories. Staff are efficient and courteous. I arrived this Monday, very early, and had a need to get to my room, the front desk checked me in at 11:00am, no hassle. Parking is ample and free. Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, and a good happy hour if your inclined. Great popcorn!!. All in all a good safe place for both business or pleasure, did I mention that it's smack dab in the middle of I-drive, not the sleazy side but the side with all the good restaurants and bars.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor, they main atrium can be a tad bit loud.

We have stayed at this property many times in the past and brought several friends and family with us for our most recent visit. We love the staff and all they have to offer. Keep up the good work! See you guys again in November for the Florida Classic....go Rattlers!

The hotel was fine but the mattresses were extremely uncomfortable. We had 2 rooms with 2 people per room. We each had our own bed and none of us were happy the next morning. Didn't report the problem since 4 beds had been bad. We moved to a different hotel. Service personnel were very good to us.

Safe and phone didn't work in my room. Staff offered to store my personal belongings in a safety deposit box in office, which didn't fit my purse. I had to keep it in my rental car when I visited Orlando instead. Also, no one ever came up to fix my room phone. (I did like the variety of the buffet breakfast, but that's not enough to make me stay there again).

My husband and I visited Orlando for the first time and wasn't sure in what area we wanted to stay. Embassy Suites was a great choice. Centrally located, great restaurants within walking distance. Extremely satisfied. Great service. Excellent breakfast. Comfortable bed. Would definitely stay here on my next trip to Orlando.
