Homewood Suites Orlando-International Drive/Convention Center
Ranked #34 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 3, 2013

I stay at Homewood Suites properties on a frequent basis because I appreciate the comfortable beds, the in-room coffee makers, the free WiFi and the manager's breakfast and evening dinner receptions. This property on International Drive in Orlando didn't disappoint. The hotel is centrally located for SeaWorld and Universal Studios. Cab rides were about $15 one way to each attraction. There are an abundance of restaurants/bars within easy walking distance of the hotel. The pool / hot tub area are clean, but the building footprint blocks much of the sun except for a few hours during the center of the day. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay and I highly recommend.

Good Morning brendakaynv,

I appreciate you taking time to review my Homewood Suites and share your experience about why this is a great brand for travelers looking to maintain a "home like" lifetsyle.

When coupled with our fantastic Orlando location it makes for a great choice.

We just got back from a quick weekend trip to Disney and spent 3 nights at this Homewood Suites. We like Homewood Suites because they include a hot breakfast, have a light "dinner" Sun-Thurs and have "suites" instead of one big room. This Homewood Suites is located right on International Drive and is very close to many restaurant choices. It is also very easy access to I-4 to get to any of the theme parks. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were there over a weekend, and even though it was crowded, the breakfast was well staffed and employees were constantly wiping tables and making sure everything was well stocked. The selections were usually some kind of eggs (scrambled), sausage, and hash browns on the hot side. They also have an assortment of toast and bagels (they were out one morning and went in the back to get one for my daughter no problem), cereals, doughnuts, yogurt and whole fruit. For drinks there were decaf and cafe coffee, lemonade, fruit punch, orange juice and one other I can't remember. They also have a waffle station - Belgium or Mickey Ones. The manager was floating around also one morning, asking guests how things were going and cleaning up plates himself.

Now onto the downside, the rooms are pretty dated and felt small. The bathroom has a plastic surround (not tile) and it was yellowing and had some moldy caulk. I felt it was clean, but definitely old. The room has a living area with a small table, couch (pull out), chair and a small kitchenette. They do provide a coffee maker and we received a complimentary pack of milano cookies and 2 bottles of water upon arrival. The couch had stains on it, but the floor looked reasonably clean. The beds were comfortable and the water in the shower was hot, but the curtain was too short and had a hard time staying in the tub, hence we had water all over the floor. We always stay at Hilton Properties, since we're Honors members, so we've tried a pretty wide selection of Hilton owned properties around Orlando. As another reviewer mentioned, the elevators are small and can take awhile to get to you. The building felt big and we had to walk quite a ways to our room.

My final take is - good location, friendly staff, nice breakfast, but rooms felt small and dated. I personally prefer the Homewood closer to Universal or the new Embassy Suites that recently opened. We probably won't come back to this particular property.

This hotel is in an excellent location on International Drive. The lobby area and pool are nice.... The free breakfast and light dinner are a great bonus, but rooms are really in need of an update. Our room smelled a bit musty and the bathroom did not seem as clean as it could, but that could have been due to age of fixtures.

Room Tip: Lower floors are best - the elevators are painfully slow and small!

Great location, near a lot of restaurants and fun. The hotel offered nightly dinner (full dinner, not appetizers) and a nice welcome amenity. This could be because of my status, not sure. Lobby was nice, coffee available 24 hours. Free Breakfast. The room was great, loved the kitchen since I'm on a restricted diet and brought my own food. Very clean. Friendly staff. The pool looked nice, but I didn't have time to enjoy it. Would definitely return!
