“Very Nice Hotel in a great location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2014

Excellent breakfast, good restaurant and bar, friendly staff, nice room, safe. We'll be back next time in Orlando. Near Disney Downtown and easy accesses to the parks. Lots of restaurants around. Premium Outlet in Vineland is close.

Stayed 4 nights for our first-time visit to Disney World. Shuttle service allowed us to keep the car at the hotel. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, from valet/bellman, registration, restaurant staff. Special mention goes to the restaurant manager, DREVIS for a great welcome, to our waiter SAID, and to ELIA!

My wife and I stayed here for one night following a long flight from the UK before travelling south.
The hotel was very modern, our room was spacious and meticulously maintained.
All of the staff were very focused on ensuring our stay was perfect.
Great location for Disney and lots of restaurant choice.
I recommend this hotel for anyone thinking of staying in this area, we would definitely return.

The hotel was great and is a short walk to DownTown Disney. The hotel shuttle to the Disney Parks worked very well. It took less than 15 minutes to get to Epcot. The room had a great view and, although the weather was cold during our visit, the pool was warm.

Room Tip: We asked for a room facing the pool on a higher floor (6), not in the tower. The rooms with the iron...

We were in two minds about Holiday Inn and were struggling whether to choose another brand hotel that we have used before or go with the Holiday Inn since it was walking distance to Downtown Disney as well as the recent positive reviews that were published here. Well, we did make the right choice by going with the Holiday Inn. It was perfect for our stay in Orlando where we have in fact extended our stay by a day with no issues. The initial room we were given was by the ice and soda machines and as you can imagine, when all is quite, the soda machine would start making noise!! Quick phone call and we were allocated another room, on the same floor away from these machines. We were also told that they do try NOT to book this room out to their clients as they are aware of the inconvenience. If you don't complain though, they are happy to let you sleep in that room :-) The front desk was really friendly, specially Christina with a sense of humor bigger than Orlando. Very friendly, very warm and a huge smiley face. Loved everything about her. Guy at the door were fantastic too and were only too happy to take care of the empty luggage we wanted to leave behind, thanks guys. Overall, everyone at the hotel was fantastic and we will definitely stay at this Holiday Inn when we visit Orlando next.

Room Tip: Any room away from the Ice and Soda machines and I always prefer high floors.

Nice hotel, well kept, neat, clean, great looking pool area (was cold outside so did not use), nice lobby and atrium area for breakfast, this is the first issue, $20 for a buffet breakfast, and they have a suggested tip card with the check! For a buffet, maybe a dollar, but not 20%!

The 2nd issue is the so called bar. For more than $8 for a glass of wine one would expect something a little better than the swill they are trying to pass off as wine. Even the best Pinot Noir is only $20 a bottle in the local liquor store, and this stuff was not even drinkable.

Plus the again so called bar tender on duty this night, did not belong in a nice hotel like this.
King bed nice, view of pool OK, and very clean great maid service.

Will I be back, don’t know! Two adults having fun with Mickey, no kids with us, probably a better place for families with kids!

Green Features: Need a great deal of help! I am, in the energy business and this place could easily save 30% plus on their utilities!

We went for 8 days and it was my little princess's first time at Disney and I have to say this hotel was a perfect location for our family vacation. Specially for the kindness of all the staff. We were glad to find out how close Downtown Disney was, also having the theme park buses stoping right in front of our hotel was very convinient. The only thing that we regret is that we were given a room on the 14th floor with a lot of noise from near highway and having made our reservation with plenty on time ahead we really expected better. Food was great.
