The hotel was picked by the travel agent as part of our package holiday. After checking the website we were expecting something acceptable, a bit tired maybe but we're sure it would be OK for our stay. However on arriving we found that the pictures shown on the internet were way out of date. The hote, is modern, luxurious, clean... More

We are Universal/Island of Adventure annual pass holders and was looking for clean and reasonable place to stay close to the parks. This hotel hit the mark! The remodel was done beautifully and the staff was friendly. They offer shuttle services to and from the parks but do not offer continental breakfast. They do have restaurants on site and others...

We called front desk to get our carpets cleaned or vacuumed as there were a bunch of bugs on the floor. They never came to clean it so we ended up picking... More

Spent one night here while in Orlando. Great rooms, very neat and clean. Overall we were very happy with our stay and will certainly make use of this hotel again. There is some civil works activity underway around the hotel but nothing serious to distract from one's stay.
