Absolutely the best hotel we booked in Florida. We reserved a one-bedroom suite. When we got into the suite, we were surprised at the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We went back to the reception to double check. The guy told us we got an upgrade and each of us would have our own bathrooms. He was so funny and very nice. Actually the staff are really friendly. We didn't cook in the suite so no problems with cleaning or ants? We used one bathroom and one bedroom only. Best location to eat and walk around the area at night. Most of the restaurants were full but we tried to come early so no issues there. The suite was really clean and we were glad to have stayed here for 4 nights. Thanks a lot.

Hotel's Favorite
Couldn't quite believe our suite here, it was a sumptuous size, full of comfort and was more akin to a small apartment, than a hotel room, and with a kitchenette to boot! Such luxury ensured our stay, that started with a friendly and efficient check-in process, indeed the staff whilst low-key were both at all times, and enlivened by great swimming facilities, was very comfortable from start to finish. Our only minor quibble is, that whilst the breakfast was good, tasty and came in bountiful amounts, there wasn't a lot of variety in the foodstuffs offered, which meant after 7 breakfasts they all became a little samey and so-so. Being on International Drive it goes without saying it is centrally positioned, and there is a frequent bus service to the main features at Disney and Universal (and back again) morning, noon and n ight. All in all a fabulous place to stay!

We have just returned from a two week stay at Sonesta. The suite was lovely -spacious and clean. The kitchen area had tea and coffee supplies and the bathroom had dispensers on the wall for showering. The location of the Sonesta on idrive is brilliant with an itrolly stop right outside and a lynx stop just across the road. There is also availability for transport and return from the parks at the itrolly stop, these can be booked on the Fabulous Bus website the day before. Restaurants are located all around the hotel and a Walgreens is within walking distance. The pool and jacuzzi are a great way to relax and wind down after a day at the parks. The reception staff were the jewel in the crown for our stay, they were SOOO nice and helpful for anything we needed, have to give a big shout out to Gerald. Thank you all we had a fantastic stay at Sonesta

This is our 4th visit to Orlando and 1st time at Sonesta Hotel. We’ve stayed for 2 weeks and loved the hotel. The rooms are lovely, clean and spacious, with lots of facilities if you wanted to have some food in your room. The staff are always helpful and greet you with a smile on their faces. Special thanks to Vanessa on the front desk for being so helpful and never without a smile, you can really tell she loves her job! Housekeeping comes after you’ve been there 1 week and you have to request towels at the front desk since COVID which is no problem at all. The pool is great, plenty of beds with towels you can grab. The only thing we thought that would make it better would be a bar / somewhere to grab drinks rather than going into the shop in reception as it can get a little pricey. Towards the end of our stay, there was a tournament going on at the convention centre so a lot of people staying at the hotel which made it very rowdy, especially when we wanted to relax and have some peace and quiet. Regardless of that, we have had an amazing 2 weeks and the location is perfect especially if you love going to the restaurants and it’s across the road from Icon Park.

Great hotel in the middle of International Drive. There are so many amenities and restaurants within walking distance. We couldn’t hear any of the noise from outside in our rooms. The apartment was clean and spacious. The beds in the bedrooms were really comfortable but the sofa bed was horrible as you can feel the springs. Would be helpful if they provided more dishwasher soap for such a long stay. The staff working were so friendly and knowledgeable throughout. A free shuttle to the parks is provided. The pool was lovely and relaxing, always clean and open until 10 which is brilliant. Would definitely stay here again if we come back!

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It was very clean and spacious. I like that the bathrooms are handicap accessible. It’s like having a apartment with a kitchen, living room and bedrooms with tvs in every space. This hotel is perfect for families and solo travel. I had time in the hot tub and pool until 10:00. It’s located by everything restaurants shops and entertainment.

Stayed for two weeks in May/June booked as a package through TUI, lovely welcoming friendly helpful staff, special mention to Tyler and I think Franscesca? Who works during the night who were especially helpful and kind. Rooms are spacious and clean, we had a two bed apartment, beds SO comfortable and bed linen and towels lovely and soft. Shower fabulous and provided hairdryer, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel, can get clean towels from reception whenever you want and also get free bags of ice from the freezer in the little shop next to reception. Great to have a fridge and crockery/cutlery shame there’s only a hob and no oven and we think it would be a good idea to include a few dishwasher tablets. Fantastic location really central to everything, great WiFi. We hired a car from Sixt on site dead handy rather than get from the airport see Henry he is super helpful a great guy! Didn’t use the shuttles we prefer the freedom of a car so can’t comment on those. Pool was lovely lots sun beds not the comfiest but adequate we only used the pool once it was nice and warm for children plus there’s a jacuzzi. The gym was very sparse and the cross trainer didn’t work, didn’t appear to be plugged in? Son said it could do with a few dumbbells he was disappointed couldn’t get in a decent workout. Husband used launderette said it was easy and handy and only cost few dollars. Lovely breakfast cafe area we didn’t use heard it was expensive but can’t comment. Overall, can’t fault the place it’s quiet, great air conditioning comfy big beds we slept really well plus safe and semi walk in wardrobe we’d go back in a heartbeat LOVED it well done everyone

My family and I stayed at the Sonesta ES Suites on I Drive for 7 nights from 25th May 2022 for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We had a delightful stay at the hotel which was central to most of not all attractions. The hotel was clean and the staff were very very friendly. We stayed in room 117 and after a few teething problems on the first day (three in one day but mainly our fault I have say) the staff were accommodating and came to our aid quickly (I had a call out chart jokingly left behind the reception area). Vanessa (shift manager I believe) was an absolute blast and was brilliant! She made our stay for sure and I couldn’t speak highly enough of her! The pool area was nice and clean as was the jacuzzi. The only gripe I had is that our suite was right next to/ attached to a side gate to and from the car park and was used both day and night. When used and not shut quietly it shook the room (literally)! Maybe the hotel could put a sign on the gate or lock it after a certain time so as to not disturb people within suite 117 in the future. Just a minor thing after an excellent stay! Thanks for the memories! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you!

We stayed here for 2 weeks in May (11 May - 25 May). The hotel is perfectly situated on International Drive, directly opposite Icon Park and with a great choice of really nice restaurants all within walking distance. It is also about 2 minutes from I-4, and about 5 minutes drive from Walmart, which was really useful. The pool area is clean. Our kids (aged 8, 5 and 2) loved playing by the pool at the end of a long day in the parks. The hot tub was lovely too. The pool gets sun most of the day (from about 9 - 5 when we were there), which was lovely on our rest day. The staff are all amazing. Roxanne on reception was fantastic - every hotel needs a Roxanne! The rooms were comfortable and spacious, if slightly dated in their decor. But to be honest, for a family of 5 who spent very little time in the room it was perfect. Our room had air con, a kitchen with plenty of plates, cups, glasses, etc, a big fridge, tv in each room. Like I said, perfect for us. The hotel also has a laundry room, with a wash costing $2.50 and dry costing $2.50. This was really useful, and saved us having to do suitcases full of washing when we got home 😃 In all, a fantastic hotel. I would most definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends if they ere ever visiting Orlando.

Stayed as a couple over the last couple of weeks in May 2022. Positives Great location, apartment spotlessly clean with large fridge, microwave, hob and all cooking utensils. Room safe was good. Pool area was clean with pool towels provided. Negatives Cleaning only once per week unless you want to pay $30 + tax each time in addition to your $17 per night 'resort fee'. Alternatively, you can put your own rubbish out, make your own bed and sweep the floors yourself - not my idea of a holiday. Clean towels, and anything else you needed was available from reception. However, considering that in additon to the cost of staying you are paying an extra $17 per night 'resort fee' you might think they could provide toilet rolls without having to ring down to reception to ask for one. We also thought the pool was quite small, was very busy when people came back from the parks and it was difficult to get a sunbed when the hotel was busy.
