“Great Hotel, Very Friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

The hotel itself is very nice, the reception area is fresh and clean and all the staff where very friendly and happy to help.
we stayed in block 8 which was a decent room needed a little freshen up, we had a problem when using the shower that the water would spill around the curtain and flood the floor around the toilet every time, but again not a huge problem as we received new towels etc each day.
The rooms are very quiet and you can get a decent night sleep. The only time I would wake up is when somebody walked in front of our room with suitcases, it did sound like a plane taking off.

The pool areas where great for a bit of relaxation clean and peaceful. The last 2 days of our holiday we sat at the main pool but the pool bar was shut and there was awful noise from the construction work behind the pool. The first day we where given free BBQ and Drinks to compensate at a different pool which was nice of the hotel. We did prefer the main pool and wish that we had known about the work intended to take place when we arrived so we could of rearranged our day visits. The work was only taking place that weekend so nobody going here should worry about it.

Tho hotel is in a great location, and the I-trolley bus stops right outside which was $12 for a 7 day ticket and takes you all the way up International Drive upto the Premium Outlets, Universal, Wet N Wild and Sea World was a 5 minute walk from the back gate. The free shuttle bus to Disney also stops at this hotel.

I would return to this hotel and hope that next time we can try out a nicer refurbished room in the tower. Thanks for a great Stay.

Booked through a blind Priceline bid. Parking fee of $15.00 added upon arrival.
Room was in a building on property similar to a motel. Located by the service area, horns from trucks, moving carts, and noise all night.
Off to the lounge - ordered an Absolute and cranberry - $14.59 per drink.
I've stayed at countless Orlando hotels - this was by far the worst.

Stayed at this property 8 years ago when it was a Sheraton and it was a DUMP! When I found out it was now a Hilton property I decided to try it again, I'm glad I did! The staff was very good and the rooms in the tower were very nice and clean. I do think the beds need to be replaced but they were usable. As always got a nice cookie on arrival and felt welcome! Get the breakfast package for 2 if you can its an excellent deal and the buffet was one of the best I've ever seen!

Room Tip: Spend the extra 10 bucks to get a "Fresh Room" will likely get you in the tower

We stayed here for 4 days the week before Christmas and then after a trip to Key West we came back and stayed here again.The first 4 days we stayed in a tower room which was very nice and apart from some minor problems with the key to the room not working and being charged for water we hadn't had, the stay wasn't too bad.I did feel that the hotel lacked any atmosphere there were hardly any promotions to encourage you to stay and drink or eat in the hotel.Breakfast was expensive so after the first day we ate across the road at the village Inn where we were welcomed, and with an excellent breakfast menu at reasonable pricess we were spoilt for choice.I also thought the bar prices in the hotel were expensive.
When we returned from Key West we were put in a resort room on the first floor.The room itself was ok but the beds were very small not big enough for two,which surprised me coming from the uk.The location of the room wasn't great and if I were to stay again I would go for a tower room.I did think the gardens were nice and well presented as was the pool area.The location on I drive was a bit further out from the centre than we would of liked but excellent for Sea world as you can walk to it.I think that there are better hotels on I drive for the money so wouldn't stay there again

Room Tip: go for a tower room

Me and my husband got married in Florida 2010 and loved the hotel and it's layout, fab customer service and decided to go back last year in May 2012 with our 4 year old little girl.

Well as i remember the rooms were fab in 2010 and they were just exactly the same 2012, spotless!!!! Greeted at reception with a warm cookie and a helpful member of staff.

The newspaper on the door every morning was a lovely added touch our stay.

We were alittle disheartened when the kids club they had in 2010 was no longer in use, with no reason as to why. wasn't too bad as we had plenty of day outs planned but....when we didn't my little girl wanted to use the swimming pool.

The last weekend of our stay they had a gay event! which i wouldn't minded if we had been told upon our arrival that this was going to be happening. Two of the swimming pools at certain times were blocked off due to the event and with having a 4 year old little girl who loves to swim it was so upsetting for her not to be able to swim when the events around the pool were on. I just wish were told by a member of staff on our arrival. As it put us on a bit of a downer on the last few days when our little girl wanted to swim.

But will gilve them the benefit of the doubt and would love to return as it's a beautiful, clean, friendly hotel :)
