“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

All the staff at the Embassy Suites works very hard together to make your stay perfect. I appreciate that and I would return anytime to this hotel. The hotel is always clean and is in a great location. Near Sea World, Discovery Cove and all the Disney Parks are just a few miles away. They have a nice out door pool and patio area. The breakfast offered is a full one with every breakfast item available to enjoy. I like how the open Atrium is with the tropical feel of the waterfall. The concierge desk is staffed and offers knowledgeable information about the area. Kids would love this hotel. My room was always made when I returned. If I needed anything such as decaffeinated coffee for my room the front desk provided it right away. It’s nice to stay somewhere where everyone has a smile on their face. Point Orlando is across the street, just a few blocks away. This has numerous restaurants and shopping and movie theater.

Such a lovely hotel. We had a wonderful 9 days here. Great location and really good facilities. We really enjoyed the breakfast and the free drinks reception every evening. Super friendly staff, we loved Mr Lee and Charles. Rooms are a little dated but very clean and comfortable. We will be back. Thank you Embassy Suites!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks as part of our 30th anniversary celebrations. We were really pleased with our choice of hotel and we found all members of the staff team from the manager to the housekeeping staff to be friendly and efficient. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble.
Lovely indoor and outside pool.
The breakfasts were of good quality and the free happy hours were brilliant!!
Rich on the concierge desk was very helpful with ideas of where we could visit as we are not interested in Disney.
The hotel is in a good location with easy walking distance to a wide variety of restaurants or the bus stops right outside.
Would definitely recommend.

Good location as the area is really being nicely developed, good selection of restaurants in walking distance. Very nice outdoor and indoor pools which are open very late so plenty of time for a dip in the late evening.
Complimentary breakfast was excellent and the chefs could not do enough to ensure you enjoyed the experience. Similarly, the staff on the two hour Managers Special in the evening were fantastic, The young man ( I believe was a student), who worked only on weekends was absolutely tremendous.
Down side was that the rooms ere very 'tired' and in need of a little refurb. However, the linen, bed and bath, was immaculate. Great business centre with full facilities - good bonus

Room Tip: The hotel backs on to the I4 so there is a lot of traffic noise right through the night, perhaps the...

Really enjoyed my stay in this hotel but the only thing that was a bit of a disappointment was the slight damp smell in the room when we first checked in. The hotel could be done with some home imporvements and upgrading but other than that it's a great hotel - the staff were friendly and helpful, it's a great location with plenty of bars and restaurants near by. It's close to Sea world, Aquatica and the Universal parks but about 1.5hrs from Busch Gardens. It's a bit of a drive away from the Disney parks.
The Hotel has an outdoor pool and also an indoor pool with a jaquzzi and sauna.
They offered a nice buffet breakfast with a lovely omelette station where you got to have your omelettes cooked to order fresh.
Every evening the hotel put on a 'Manager's Bar' between half 5 and half 7 which offers the residents complimentary drinks and snacks.
The rooms are a good size, comfortable and were cleaned daily - as I previously mentioned the only let down was the damp smell and there was a minor leak in the bathroom but once reported to reception it was rectified promptly.

What a breath of fresh air after departing from the other location! Beautiful courtyard, friendly people & felt very safe. A couple little glitches however, room service, ordered the wilted spinach salad with salmon, what was delivered you ask? Spinach dip & chips =) not the same! The staff happily corrected the problem & delivered the salad with salmon & it was perfect. Loved it! The other issue, lack of hot water. I talked with several people there who were experiencing the same issue. The front desk said they would get engineering to check on the problem but it was not fixed during my stay. While the room seemed a little out dated & the a/c was lacking a bit, the room was nice. Enjoyable stay & nice safe area.

This hotel is convenient to Sea World and Universal Studios, and there are many restaurants close by. It is a bit of a drive to Walt Disney World so if you are planning a Disney vacation, you may want to consider a hotel closer to the parks. The room was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the free breakfast in the morning with made to order omelets. One of the elevators was out of service when we were there, and the other three elevators were very slow. The room set up was a little unusual since the living room area had windows opening to the atrium area/hallway. If you plan to use the pullout couch, you may want to get dressed/undressed in a different room as the curtains did not close all the way. Overall a nice place to stay for the price and location.
