Stayed at the hotel in September 2009 whilst on holiday in Orlando, we were visiting Bush Gardens and a Tampa Bay Buccanneers game the next day.
The hotel was convenient for both events and well situated. We checked in at 3pm, and I was really impressed to be greeted as a Priority Club Platinum member and made to feel very welcome. The only downside at check-in was that the Jacuzzi Room we had booked was still occupied. However, the staff were quick to sort this out and offer a suite insead.
The room was fantastic with a huge bed, clean and spaciious bathroom and seperate sitting area. I was amazed to turn the TV to get numerous TV channels with a number of them in HD! In the UK a Holiday Inn Express would give you maybe 8 channels all of which would have appalling picture quality.
The complimentary breakfast was great, and overall would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. We are returning to Florida in 2010 and will hopefully return to the hotel for a weekend in Tampa.
