Just spent 5 nights here in Orlando. I had already been to Disney and Universal and needed a place that was near shopping but also not too far from the airport (international). This hotel filled the bill completely. With it's own entrance into Florida Mall, it was ideal for that. The room was clean and comfortable. I was on the top floor so the view was pleasant (the roof of the mall was right underneath but you can look over that). Especially nice at night. A couple of small complaints: one was the sound of running water, every 10 minutes, that sounded like a toilet flushing next door. Except there was no one next door. Still don't know where that came from. The other is the Wifi. It totally sucks. I connected at 5 bars and within about 15 minutes was down to one and couldn't use Skype for more than 10 minutes at a time. Each time, I had to disconnect and reconnect to get the service back. That was a nuisance. That and someone hacked into my "room" wireless and used my system to look at porn. I've written directly to the hotel about that. That was just unacceptable.
But, the hotel itself was awesome. The service terrific, the pool area was beautiful. Anything you need, you just ask and it is provided. Their customer service was excellent. Crickets Bar downstairs offers a happy hour with 2 for 1 drinks and appetisers. The appetisers were not terrific and starting at $16 each, not really two for one. You can do better elsewhere.
