I would say this is one of the largest hotels in Orlando - it's huge! It reminded me of the larger hotels in Las Vegas. Checking in was pretty painless although there was always a queue at the desk and a wait. The imposing reception area was smart but clinical. The rooms were excellent and provided everything needed. They were also nice and quiet. Car parking was expensive at $20 per day - this must be one of the very few hotels that charge for parking in Orlando. The hotel was at the end of the International Drive area so a bit out on a limb although there was a bus service close by.
The layout of the pools was great. Although the designated "quiet pool" turned out to be very noisy with a group of people drinking and shouting and spoling the peace and tranquility. Hilton staff continued to serve this group with alcohol even though they were extremely rowdy and were also drinking their own alcohol. They should have been asked to move to the general pool area but they weren't! There were also unacompanied teenage kids using rubber rings in this pool too.
The business centre offers free airline check-in facilities which worked very well.
All in all it's a good hotel but it lacks the warmth and friendliness of other hotels.
