“Great place and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2008

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here, and we obviously like it.

The location is great. From Palm Parkway, you can get to Disney sites and places like Sea World, etc. without having to negotiate the International Drive mess. Also an easy on/off to I-4. The staff is superb about giving directions.

The hotel also is a short drive to a small restaurant area, where you can eat at a crab shack, pizza place, Japanese restaurant, Hooters, etc. There's also a small grocery there.

Our rooms were clean and comfortable, with the advantage of a separate bedroom, so one person can read or watch TV in the main room while the other sleeps in the bedroom. Or you can both watch TV in different rooms.

The breakfast isn't fabulous, but it is certainly OK. I'd eat either yogurt or oatmeal while my husband stuck to eggs and bacon or sausage. They also have cereal, fruit, bread for toast, etc. Plenty to fill up on. We didn't do the Happy Hour stuff, so I can't report on that.

Next time we're in Orlando, we'll definitely stay here again. Friendly, helpful staff, nice room, good location. A real winner.

After researching the reviews, we found the Hawthorn Suites to meet and exceed our expectations. The best part was how clean the rooms were! I've never stayed in a hotel as clean as this one. My pet peeve is hair in the bathrooms! Every day there did not appear to be any left, after the thorough cleaning job. I commend the housekeeping staff and made sure I let them know. The downside, which isn't really a big deal to us, was the kind of boring breakfast. Pretty much the same everyday. And the front desk always seemed to be understaffed. They got our reservation wrong even after confirming the week prior. But all was taken care of as soon as we arrived by the manager. Other than that things were great! Can't beat Palm Pkwy. local, it's the best out of the way place. We've stayed in this area some years prior. We will definitely be back!

Just returned from Hawthorn Suites in Lake Buena Vista. Would highly recommend for value and quality of accomodation. Free breakfast and happy hour a great bonus. Beds to die for!! Would probably not stay here without a car, although Theme Park Shuttles advertised they are not very frequent. Great staff, nothing too much trouble. We stayed at the back of the building and never heard any noise at all, great after a really busy day at the Theme Parks. Only slight complaint rooms were not serviced until 4pm some days, however this would not stop me recommending or returning to this comfortable and clean establishment.

Our family of four stayed one night after flying in to Orlando airport. It was easy to find, easy to park and a quick check in.
It was very clean, nice set up with two rooms and a double bathroom door for access into the bedroom or out to the kitchen/living room. Shower/tub was separate so someone could be in the shower and someone could still use the vanity area. Beds were very comfortable and we had no complaints.

Breakfast was pretty average and if I wanted to pick I would tell you there was cream cheese but no bagels? No bagels, I thought all hotels had bagels for breakfast. Like I said, it was average.
We didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel, just one night on our way to the resort we had booked for the week. Very nice and would stay there again, problem free!

My family and I (6 of us in total, 4 adults, 2 children) enjoyed two wonderful weeks at this fantastic hotel. The staff were extremely helpful when we suffered a problem with our booking, due to a mistake by the travel agent, but they provided us with an extra room until we could contact the travel agent the following day to sort it out.

The night manager, Michael Quick, who happened to be on duty the night we checked in and helped us resolve the problem with our room, was an absolute diamond. I don't think our stay would have been as enjoyable if it wasn't for his wit, charm, superb service and total dedication to his job - he was an absolute star and we looked forward to seeing his smiling face after a long day trawling around the parks!

The accommodation was second to none. The two-bedroomed suite we had booked was huge, which completely surprised my sister, who had stayed at a Disney Hotel last year and was not expecting the room to be so big after her experience. We were very impressed with the two king-sized beds in one room, one queen-sized bed in the other, two bathrooms and a kitchen, dining area and sitting area - luxury!

The breakfast was a little bit dissappointing in terms of the hot food but there was always an alternative, cereal, toast, muffins or bagels, so we couldn't complain and always left with full bellies.

The kids thoroughly enjoyed the swimming pool and basket ball court where they could chill out at the end of the day.

All in all, our stay at the Hawthorn Suites was absolutely wonderful and we would certainly return there without hesitation. A big thank you to all the staff for making our staff so enjoyable.

me and my family went to stay at the hawthorn suites in janurary this year,it was a very nice and clean place.The only things we could fault with it was,in the brochure it says that you get a free full american breakfast everyday.
If you call boiled eggs and bacon a full breakfast then I'm mistaken,then on one day we only had scrambled eggs,sorry but thats not what i call a FULL american breakfast.
The other was the transport to the parks,we were one of the first to get picked up and the last to get dropped off,this hotel is only 10 mins away from universal but it took us an hour with all the pick ups.The outdoor pool was freezing to swim in.there is no cocktail party mon to thurs only beer and wine,no bar and no smoking

Five of us stayed at Hawthorn Suites in Jan. Great location and excellent choice for a family who wants some space. Kitchen area was fairly large for a hotel room. There was a kitchen table that would hold 4 comfortably. Kitchen was equiped with a lot of kitchen items which was surprising for a hotel room and not a condo. Dressing area with sink separate from toilet/shower. This area could also be closed off from the sleeping areas too. Hotel was quiet except for the palm leaves beating against the windows on a windy night. Room was very clean and beds were comfortable. Breakfast was ok for a buffet but you can't beat it for the price. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Always plenty of parking spaces available. Weather was too cool for the pool so I can't comment on those facilities.
