The Florida Hotel & Conference Center, BW Premier Collection
Ranked #12 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 18, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the upper floors. The view is better.

Me and my associates really enjoyed the friendly, efficient service, the clean comfortable accommodations, and your convenient location. Everything from fine dining, swimming, spa, business center, great bar to an attached mall for shopping .

We ate at Marcelo's and next day at Crickets Bar. Apparently both use the same kitchen and chef. The food came out quickly. Quality excellent. The staff were attentive and accommodating with our diet restrictions. One entre was the ground salmon burger. We were apprehensive of fillers and processed taste. Well we were wrong, it was fresh and clean, natural ingredients no processed tasted. Overall the food was good and fair value.

The executive chef John Witney happened to ask us our opinion on their new menu. He was genuinely concerned that all went well and open to suggestions. He did not need suggestions, the food was fresh and clean. Thank you John!

The atmosphere was very pleasant and relaxing. If you are in the hectic, busy, crowded Florida Mall, stop by Marcelo's or Cricket's Bar in the attached Florida Hotel for a relaxing world away from the mall.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 evenings and then an additional weekend. The service here was outstanding, hotel was awesome. Both visits were great. The hotel staff could not of been more helpful. From the gentlemen that opened the front door, the front desk and the staff cleaning the hotel, we had absolutely no complaints.
Both stays were so positive that we would recommend this hotel for sure. The location is so easy to get to and had everything to offer in the immediate area. Nothing to complain about at this hotel. Actually planning another trip to Orlando and before I book my flights, I am checking hotel availability!!!

This is a really nice hotel, it is very large and easy access to The Florida Mall. Our room was very large and the beds were lovely and comfortable. The only thing we didn't like in the room was the paper thin walls, and hearing our next door people shouting and swearing in the early hours of the morning.
The staff are pleasant and helpful, the breakfast area is really busy and the food yummy.
Overall a very nice 2 night stay

Check-in smooth and straight forward with nice friendly, welcoming staff.

Decent sized rooms well decorated and clean, which include, free wifi, safe, fridge, tea/coffee making facilities. Only gripe was our view was the roof on a lower level.

Good size pool with towels provided

No issues with sleeping, as we didn't experience any noise from other guests

Hotel is in a mall so good selection of places to eat and shop right on your doorstep. Starbucks and a restaurant are in the lobby.

As long as you have a car, the hotel is well placed for all of Orlando's theme parks and attractions.
