“Very positive experience at this new hotel”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We have stayed at other Embassy Suites Hotels and this particular hotel is spacious, well lit, new (and modern) and very clean. The desk staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was better than some of the other older Embassy Suites that we have stayed at which are more dated. It is conveniently located within a 5 to 10 min drive from the Disney World park entrance gates. We recommend this hotel to other families and travellers.

We stayed at this hotel from 4/28-5/3/13 after a one night stay at a WDW resort that was less satisfactory. This Embassy Suites is the best! Great service with courteous and helpful staff from check-in to check-out. Breakfast was really filling and the manager's reception was surprisingly good (too bad we didn't get to do it every day). We were accommodated at the Presidential suite which was spacious, very comfortable and super clean. Loved the location. We were here for a Disney vacation and we were not too far to drive back and take a breather/ afternoon nap before heading out again. We are going to see Mickey again in December and I have already made reservations at this hotel for 6 nights. Looking forward to it! nilrad67

First time staying off the disney resorts. Brand new hotel, 10 floors, rooms were nice, and spacious. We had the double with pull out couch. Even the pull out couch was comfortable to sleep on.

Breakfast in the morning cant be beat, food was good for the most part and was a good way to start the day. Didnt try the hotel restaurant, as there were numerous restaurant options nearby (99, applebees, smokey bones,olive garden)

A walmart is nearby, which allowed us to grab food/snacks/ milk etc etc to stock up in the room for the kids as there are a mini fridge and microwave in the room.

All of the disney attractions are nearby about 10-15 min drive. however, you will need to park at disney for 14 bucks and there are long lines in the morning. The hotel does have a shuttle (3rd party), in which for 4 bucks per person,rountrip, will pick u up and drop u off at the hotel. The only downside, are the times. For us, the earliest time for holllywood studios was at 840. ( got there by 9). We'd prefer to get there earlier. The other downside, if your using a park hopper, they will only pick you up at the same spot they dropped you off at arranged times, again earlier the i hoped (640 and 840 was available).

If going to disney, and the prices were reasonable, i would prefer to stay at disney, as it was easier to get around, via monorail and get a quick start in the morning, or take a quick break in the day with kids.

however, i definitley would not hestate to stay at this hotel again.

Stayed for two nights during our trip to Disney. Wonderful hotel, with everything appearing to be in pristine condition. Our room was impeccable with comfortable beds and good living space. The complimentary breakfast buffet was sumptuous, with an excellent variety of choices. Would definitely recommend to others, and stay here again.

Hotel was very clean and very quiet. Mattress on the king bed was great. Stayed in a two room, king bed suite which had 3 sinks: one in the bathroom, one in the wetbar and a separate sink area in the bedroom. The living room area offeredhad a double sofa bed, a side chair, refrigerator, microwave and a desk/table with a swivel office chair and two additional chairs. Their was a large screen TV in the living area and a large screen TV in the bedroom. The suite also offered two closets and an in suite safe. I didn't go down to the free breakfast, but my traveling companion raved about the selections and the food. I guess my only complaint was that there was no free WIFI in the suite (Wifi was an additional 9 dollars and some change pre day - we did use the free WIFI provided in the main lobby a couple of times. Embassy offered either paid valet parking or free self parking. It was an easy drive to DISNEY parks and Celebration. The hotel is near to restaurants (as well as having an inhouse restaurant) and close to a grocery store. A very enjoyable 3 night stay with a price well below anything DISNEY offers. Staff was very nice. We were on the 6th floor and although the hotel seemed full, never had much of a wait for an elevator. The hotel charges extra for rooms facing DISNEY fireworks and although we'd asked for one, none were available. We got a room on the North side. Turns out we would have never been at the hotel to see fireworks anyway. Other than sometimes hearing water running while I was in the bathroom, never heard any noise from outside the building or from other rooms or the hallways.

Did not use the exercise room or outdoor pool so can't comment on those offerings. Also did not go to the evening cocktail hour offered by the hotel.

As people that live n Tampa , & are annual pass holders at Disney , we come to this area a lot. Many of the hotels are used & abused hard. They all get remodeled eventually but by that point you don't want to go back. I have stayed at every Embassy Suite in the area. This by far is the best. It's close to all the parks but yet away from hotel row. There's shopping for simple supplies (walmart) to outlet stores within a mile. If your from up north there's a new WaWa there too! The rooms are nice & new . Breakfast is cook to order & very good! Also has a night time manager reception. This hotel was a breath of fresh air for us. Rates are comparable or lower the other embassy suites & this by far is the best one in Orlando. We will more then likely stay here all the time now. Can't say nothing bad at all.

Thank you so much for your review. It is always great to hear that we exceed the high standards of a guest who is accustomed to the Embassy Suites Brand. We hope you continue to keep coming back to our hotel when you return using your Disney annual pass.

P.S. We love the nearby WaWa too!
