Noticed the aging of the furnishings but was pleased to learn they will be starting a major renovation starting April 2012. We stayed 5 nights this visit.
The two bedroom suites have lots of space & are nice for families to spread out and rooms are adequate, but show that they are headed into a renovation. Full kitchen and the Winn Dixue grocery store is just beside the hotel across a small street- great to have real meals while travelling.
On check in they explain the green housekeeping policy- basically quick clean- make beds & change towels then on 3rd day vacuum & clean counters. 7th day change sheets- you can call housekeeping at any time if you need something additional. Having stayed in Orlando many times all the hotels seem to be going this way to cut down time per room- at the 5 area hotels we have stayed at all have had issues with getting the room cleaned in the 4-6 hours we are out during the day.
Pool is heated to 83 so nice to go swimming even in winter!! Often Orlando hotels SAY they heat their outdoor pools to 80, but the pool heater just can't keep up with the pool size so the pool is more like mid 70s December to March- their pool honestly is well heated all winter long!!
Staff are freindly and most have been at the hotel a long time- a good sign in this day & age!
I think the towel oragami on our arrival may have been done because we have stayed several times in the past. It was a very nice touch.
I'm looking forward to the renovations being completed & would stay here again.
