“Excellent staff, location and value in Orlando”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

We stayed at The Point for 9 nights in late May/early June 2014 and were very happy with our experience for a number of reasons:
Location - other than Disney which is a drive for everyone unless you stay in their resort, everywhere is easy to get to from The Point, plus you can make use of their shuttle service for the majority of the attractions, including Disney. Wet n' Wild is just over the road so no need there!
Value - we thought this was one of the best value hotels we have ever stayed at. Obviously there is a lot of competition in Orlando but the quality, cleanliness and security of this hotel are all excellent. Resort fees are very common now but with the pool towels and shuttle service we felt like we got something back this time!
Staff - last but in our case certainly not least, we found the staff to not only be really friendly (expected) but also helpful in terms of offering to assist us with making any arrangements or sharing local knowledge.
We had a minor issue with our room when we arrived and were quite surprised by how quickly and effectively Jeff Swirsky (General Manager) dealt with it. We spoke to him as we were finishing breakfast and a couple of minutes after returning to our room he called to explain what the course of action would be. Plus, he then followed up the day after to ensure that we were happy with the outcome.
For us, this was very important and we wish more hotels cared about their guests as much!
Thank you Jeff and team for a great holiday.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to offer a good outlook, either onto the pool or out to view some of the theme parks...

Just returned from a 21 night stay in a Grand 1 bedroom suite. Fantastic facilities, wish I could have taken the bed home - it was about 7 ft wide and very comfy. Bathroom also wonderful, with a double shower cubicle and a separate Jacuzzi bath, marble top vanity unit with loads of storage space, more towels than we could use and nice toiletries. Toilet in separate room too. Kitchen very well equipped with every gadget you could think of, plus soap powder, washing up liquid, kitchen roll and even a pot scourer supplied and replaced when used. Very comfy leather settee and a large tv in both lounge and bedroom. Dining table and chairs too if you wanted to eat in. Had a small balcony which was great to watch the nightly fireworks at Universal Studios. We had breakfast included which didn't change much on a daily basis but was good. Jeff, the general manager, greeted guests every morning and dropped by the pool in the afternoon to chat and check everything was satisfactory. A very nice touch!!

Room Tip: We opted for a high floor, away from the lift with a view of the firework, but you could also choose...

Nice enough but does not warrant the price paid. The apt was acceptable but the bed wasn't very comfy and the curtains had a gap all round so it didn't get dark and we didn't get much sleep but was conveniently situated

Room Tip: Curtains don't keep out the very bright street lights that are on all night

I wish they offered returning local guests complimentary nights after stay for future return because we love this hotel. The hotel side drinks were in small plastic cups and not glass as advertised but overall our stay was amazing. Such clean rooms and friendly staff. Please give us a free night .. :) please please.

Manager, Jeff Swirsky is a professional hotelier and his devotion to his guests shows. His staff also thinks the world of his caring for them. From the time of our arrival to departure we could see the caring of the staff for their guests.
The accommodations are terrific and perfect for a couple or family. The one bed room suites really are suites, not just one long divided room. Large well appointed bathrooms with large showers and Jacuzzi bathtubs. The kitchens are full size and well stocked for what ever cooking you may want to do.
Wi-fi is easy to connect and free. Well lighted parking area.
Location is great and easily accessible but not surrounded by busy, busy, traffic. There is room for the kids to run and throw baseballs and footballs. The workout facility has good equipment and is clean.
Safety is a priority with me and I would not hesitate to let my kids enjoy the pool area on their own.. Give it a try. You will return.

Room Tip: All the studios and suites are good locations. Elevator service is good. I prefer higher floors.

We stayed in a Grand Suite, there is lots of room to spread out with a spacious bathroom & kitchen.
Breakfast was very good along with the lovely staff who worked there. In fact we found all the staff at The Point friendly and helpful. Great location with Wet n Wild across the road and a courtesy van to the shuttle parks and return. The pool area was perfect to relax after a day out.
