“Okay but needs work”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We chose this property for a quick getaway largely because of its location. Located on lake Eola in downtown Orlando it allowed us to park the car and walk to where ever we wanted. It's a nice hotel, but badly in need of some basic maintenance and attention to detail. We had a king room with a balcony so the view was great but the space itself showed a good bit of wear. Walls were scuffed in places. The bathroom double pocket doors were of the wrong size and the track was not long enough. As a result, if you tried to close them completely they came off the track. Rather than repair the problem correctly, they simply screwed a piece of wood into the space where the track didn't meet, to stop the doors. The room comes with a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker, but they only had an oultet for two plugs so that in order to make coffee we had to dig around behind the refrigerator, unplug it and plug in the coffee maker. On top of this there were no cups for coffee. Lids, but no cups. Next trip to the area we'll find another place to stay.

Beware of "Queen Deluxe" rooms! The bed was a double, nothing in this room would be close to being considered "Queen" or "Deluxe". The bathroom was tiny, the sink was as small as an airplane bathroom sink.We will never stay here again. We found this to be a real shame since this is such a great part of town! They were at full capacity, couldn't upgrade if we wanted to. They must justify the rates by proximity to night life and by providing massage and spa services because there was nothing nice I could say about the room or interior of this hotel. Water damage in stair wells, mold on the walls, old carpet in need of replacing. Oh! The pillows! Forget it, just bring your own.

This is a great property across from Lake Eola. Felt safe and secure, someone is always at the desk to let you in. Walking distance to everything in Downtown Orlando. Our room had a nice balcony, the room was well appointed, and the staff is nice and friendly, Daniella helped me with information on where to go and restaurants the delivered food!!

The location was why we chose this boutique hotel - close to the wedding festivities we were attending. What we found was a lovely boutique hotel, very well appointed and quiet. Pleasant staff and a beautiful view of Lake Eola just across the street. The price was very reasonable. I would certainly stay here again.

I've lived in Orlando most of my life and always wanted to try this hotel out. Once was enough for me. The air conditioner, which was not central, was leaking so the floor was soaked and the room was extremely humid. When I went to bed, I put some towels on the floor and turned the air off. The next morning, the towels were soaked (see picture) and my sinuses were completely closed up. The room was also very small. The bathroom could only fit 1 person at a time, and the sink reminded me of a sink on an airplane it was so tiny. It touts the jacuzzi, but it wasn't on and the cover was on it. The sign said it takes hours to heat up, also, so that was a bust.
Great location, but I'll never stay here again. I paid $100 for it so I expected much better quality.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor and we do apologize for the a/c issue. We would have been happy to move you to another room to make your stay more accommodating. Our queen rooms are our least expensive and the most efficient. We do have larger rooms that would have been more accommodating, but the rate is a bit higher. Our jacuzzi is always covered to keep debris out and only takes awhile to heat up if it had recently been refilled, there is signage that notes these things.

The location of this hotel, in the heart of downtown Orlando was the main reason for booking this hotel, but the price was pretty reasonable too. This hotel is right on top of Panera's, but we wouldn't have known if we had come straight to the main entrance. Due to the crises there are a lot of homeless people in downtown Orlando and they also hang around the Panera's below the hotel. The rooms are modern and modest and had all we needed. There is a Jacuzzi, which looked nice, but we did not try it, we also did not book any treatments in the day spa although they looked really appealing. In the lobby of the hotel there is a coffee machine with nice coffees which can be used at all hours. The staff was really nice!

Room Tip: We booked a "balcony room overlooking the courtyard" and we really enjoyed the view on the...

Had a very nice long weekend here and enjoyed the perfect location. Nice walk to local restaurants, (don't miss Dexter's in Thornton Park) and Lake Eola Park. Hotel has perfect skyline view and is remarkably quiet for a downtown spot. Perfect distance for day trip to Cocoa Beach and easy access to everything Orlando. Staff is excellent, very accommodating and helpful. Didn't have time for the spa, but looked at the marvelous menu and wished we did. Very reminiscent of boutique hotels that we have stayed at in Europe. Thank you EO!

Room Tip: King Balcony was great!
