Firstly the people on the desk were friendly and helpful and the beds were clean, but the hotel is old and in serious need of a revamp. Considering when i booked through our travel agent I specifically requested 4 star hotels for the duration of our multi-location holiday then this was noway near. All I can say is that the American version of 4 star is not the same as that in the UK. The carpets were not clean and look dirty especially in the corridors and the room entrances. The location for universal is fantastic just 5 minutes away, but I would strongly recommend you look elsewhere even if it costs you just a little bit more.

We actually stayed twice during the whole Corona Virus outbreak in Orlando. So mostly everything was partially open or completely shut down. The hotel staff were friendly and very accommodating. Our room was spacious and we were able to move around without running into one another. There was a microwave, refrigerator and a cute little Keurig in the room. We ordered take out from Friday’s connected to the hotel which was an added plus...Will stay again.

They gave us one room, we turned right around and said you have to have something better than that. (See pic) they then moved us to the 10th floor which was a replica, but at least less stains and no rips or doors hanging. The hallways are worn and not vacuumed while we were there. Leaves blown in and dirty dishes by peoples rooms for two days. It just had a worn out unkempt tired feel to the place.

My boyfriend and I traveled to Orlando for a weeks stay. We decided to stay close to Universal for a couple days but off property. This was a great choice! Very close, has shuttle service although we didn’t use it. Has a Friday’s attached. Reserved parking spots for IHG members was a nice perk. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Brianna was great, she checked us in. Room was good, comfy bed, loved the pillows, which I often hate at hotels. I would stay here again. Pricing was also good
