“Very nice hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

Just came back from a four day stay. This was a pleasure trip for four ladies, shopping and a little sight seeing. Hotel was great value for money, clean rooms, great location, very helpful and friendly staff. Large clean pool, nice towels, not a resort style but nicely maintained. Try Crickets bar, we had apps a couple of nights and they were well made, hot and reasonably priced - bar staff alert and pleasant. I travel a lot for business and stay in different classes of hotels and must say that the Florida Hotel & Conference Center exceeded my expectations - a large hotel that felt welcoming and personal - no hesitation to recommend.

Stayed September 2012

We have stayed here on several occasions. This hotel has upgraded some of its security and accommodations. We enjoyed the clean and spacious rooms. The polite and personable personnel throughout the hotel whether in housekeeping or their restaurants. I was there for a convention. We are totally pleased with this hotel and hope to return in the future. Bill

Room Tip: Prefer rooms facing the front, did not like looking over roof top of mall.

We stayed at the hotel 2 nights prior to taking a cruise out of Port Canaveral. Booked it based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were very pleased. Our room was large and extremely clean (very important to us). We lounged by the outdoor pool which was large and had plenty of chairs for guests. Pool area was attractive and clean. At the back of the lobby, the hotel opens into a large mall. Wow! Great shopping, excellent restaurants and plenty of things to do. Highly recommend.

I stayed here for several nights as it was the conference hotel. It was really quite nice, clean, confortable, and the exercise room was well equipped, with a great pool.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet at the hotel restaurant was both reasonably priced, and had great food.

The location is a bit strange as it's attached to the mall and there is really nothing else around it. This is great when you're here on business though.

The Florida Hotel is a fantastic location and close to all amenities such as the airport, theme parks & ofcourse, shopping!!
The hotel & rooms are decorated to a very tasteful, comfortable standard & the rooms are very well equiped. Very comfortable beds, large room and bathroom.
Room service is good quality, fast and has a wide selection and service times.
The hotel staff are particularly friendly and helpful.
The public areas, such as pool, gym, bar & business centre are all great! The bar has a fab drinks selection and offers the most delicious bar food.
The hotel offers sit down meals. However i always favor the buffet breakfast which again for under $20 per person it has a very wide selection of food & again fast efficient service.
I travel to this hotel two to three times a month with work and i always have a fantastic stay.
It caters for everyone, singles, couples, families would be very happy with this hotel. I always recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the lifts and also away from the service cupboards where cleaners etc enter...

This was a one-night pre-cruise stay, reserved through the cruise line. The hotel is approximately 15 minutes from Orlando International Airport and approximately $31.00 in taxi fare. Check-in was quick and easy with a very friendly and helpful staff.

My fourth floor room was located across from a storage closet. At times it was relatively noisy but wasn’t unbearable. The room was clean and spacious with a decent size refrigerator, flat screen TV and a room safe large enough to hold a laptop computer. Electrical outlets and connections for high-speed internet were located on the desk.

The bathroom included a combination tub and shower. Standard bathroom amenities included hand soap, lotion and shampoo. A dispenser was located in the tub/shower that included dispensers for shampoo/conditioner and shower gel.

The hotel is attached to The Florida Mall which is just a few steps from the hotel lobby. Immediately upon entering the mall area is the food court with a large variety of fast-food restaurants. For last minute items there is a drugstore in the mall. The lobby of the hotel includes a Starbucks, bar, and snack store that sells fresh fruit, beer, liquor and other standard items.

The hotel restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dinner was good but not exceptional, however the breakfast buffet on Sunday morning was very good with a nice selection of items and cooked to order omelets. The restaurant staff was very friendly and efficient and added a lot to the dining experience.

The cruise line also offered transportation from the hotel to Port Canaveral cruise port on Sunday morning for an additional fee. We were met promptly at 11:00am in the hotel lobby and transported to the cruise port.
