This CI & S is in a great location in Orlando. We ended up staying there because a member of our group we were meeting prefers these hotels. The price seemed high for other CI & S's, but for Orlando seemed about average. This hotel is much larger than most other CI & S's, and like the other reviews mentioned, there are a ton of families, the parking is crowded, and breakfast is a circus.
However, we have stayed in a few different places in Orlando, and this was better than several. Although the breakfast was chaotic, kudos to the hotel staff who does a great job of keeping up with it! Like the other reviews, I suggest getting to breakfast by 7:30 or wait until after 9. If you can avoid it, do not go to breakfast between 8 and 8:30, everyone is trying to get their family breakfast before heading to a park. There were many options for a free breakfast, eggs, biscuits and gravy, waffle makers, fruit, cereal and oatmeal with many toppings. Our room was clean, and for the volume of people there, very quiet. Our other party's room was in a loud hall, but even there, things quieted down by 10 PM.
Location- you can see Wet and Wild, Universal- both parks are within 5 minutes, there is a huge outlet mall within 10 minutes. Pirate mini golf within 5 minutes. Great restaurants. And the Disney parks are within 20 minutes.
