“Glad we stayed here - new is awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Booked and was a little more per night than other place we had a reservation - chose here and glad we did. The drive into Disney was negligible - say 7 miles or so. Parking lot is big. Be prepared to do some walking outside at night as is a long narrow lot - and they lock the convention center doors. Rooms were nice and clean - bed comfortable and fresh. No nicks or dings in the walls or furniture yet.
Desk and breakfast staff were fast, efficient and friendly - even on Christmas day.
I wish the glasses at breakfast weren't so small - but that is my only gripe. Room was away from the elevator - quite and clean. Will stay again for sure and give highest reccomendation.

We just stayed at this brand new hotel (3 months old) over the Christmas holiday. It was a top-notch experience.
The evening manager's reception and the morning breakfast made our holiday enjoyable as the hotel staff was accommodating and professional. The lobby and rooms are new and clean and surrounding area has plenty of options for dining.
Our master suite on the tenth floor was plenty of space for our family with microwave and small refrigerator for meal leftovers.
Exercise equipment was also the best quality.
We were lucky to take advantage of a grand opening room rate during our stay but would gladly pay regular rates for this great hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room on the west side to see the Disney fireworks in the distance.

Ken K,

Thank you for your recent stay with us. It seems like you were able to take advantage of many of our amenities. While there are several dining options in the area, we also have an in-house restaurant, Kyngs Grille which has a fantastic selection. Thanks again and we hope to see you soon!

This hotel just opened in September of this year. We stay at the Embassy Suites often as we have 2 adults and 2 children. The suite was spacious and everything was nice and new. The staff was very pleasant. The beds were comfortable!!!

We go to Orlando for weekend trips 2/3 times a year and usually stay at different Hilton Properties.
When I made our reservations months ago seen this was going to be a brand new property.
What drew me in was the nightly managers reception and cooked to order breakfast. They were both excellent and staff we encountered were friendly and professional.
The interior atrium looks beautiful with the waterfalls in the lobby and comfortable seating. The entire hotel looks warm and inviting.
The room was clean and spotless and tastefully appointed. The couch was very comfortable and clean. The bed was very nice and we had a view out towards the lake.
Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: We asked for a higher floor and were accomodated.

A bit away from the attractions but very clean and new. Breakfast area is well laid out and they have two grills going for the cook to order breakfast so the line goes very fast.

Managers reception is also nice with a variety of things- veggies and snack type food... not just the popcorn that some locations have.

We had one issue with the room that was so minor I wasn't going to mention, but housekeeping noticed and called. It was fixed within minutes! Great job!

We have a larger group joining us tomorrow so I will review again after a longer stay!

Traffic is really backed up today going up to the mall- just heavy volume given it is Christmas, but you can go around the traffic by going up the 192 to the I4- some hotels in the area don't really have an optional route to avoid traffic... so this is a nice thing to note!

Also several places to eat within walking distance from the hotel and excellent food in the hotel too!

Room Tip: Higher room to get a view of the Disney fireworks! It is in the distance, but you can enjoy it from...

As a guest who also works in the industry, I stayed here last week with my family on vacation and this property far exceeded our expectations. Breakfast and happy hour were just wonderful. All the staff, the most friendliest and helpful group of people you will meet. Absolutely clean, new property that is in a great location near shopping, restaurants and not far from Disney.

Our view was out on a grassy/swampy field and it was just nice to wake up to such a calming view!
We had a wonderful stay here!
