Because of the low season (stayed beginning of December), the 1 bedroom suites were very well prices (less than $100 a day), and for what you get, this was a very good deal!
We got a room on the 7th floor, overlooking the swimming pool and Carrier drive. A fully equipped kitchen, witch electric cooking, full size fridge with ice cube maker, dish washer, toaster, coffee maker (you get 2 cups free, additional cups $1, but they refill daily for free).
We loved these features for preparing your own breakfast, we even prepared a diner once.
The room was very clean, you get loads of TV channels and the balcony is a good place to sit at night to rest from a long day of visiting theme parks. The balcony could've used a small table though.
The bed was very comfortable, although the springs are a bit noisy when you get into bed. The thermostat of the air conditioning was in the living room, so it sometimes takes a while to kick in in your bedroom, so it can get a bit warm from time to time, but was very quiet.
Universal City Walk is 25 minutes walking and doable. They do offer shuttle services, but we didn't use them. International drive is just a few minutes walking away.
Staff in the hotel is very friendly and helpfull.
We didn't use the bar at the swimming pool.
If we ever go back to Orlando, than we'll definitely stay again!
