First and most important, the staff were GREAT! All the reviews ring true. Luis, the manager at the front desk, was very nice and always accommodated every request or question we had. Rooms were always clean. Breakfast was served hot. -- Location, location, location. The hotel is located about 5 mins from Downtown Disney and maybe 10 mins to Walt Disney World main transportation and ticket center. The hotel is also walking distance to many restaurants. Also very close to necessities such Walgreens pharmacy and Publix grocery store. Great that the hotel is off of the main streets, so not as much traffic and noise. The hotel has free parking, so no worries if you rent a car. -- Rooms: big rooms, full kitchen with large fridge, nice bathroom, separate sink and mirror from shower and toilet which is nice, two tvs, nice couch, and free wi-fi. -- Food and beverages: every morning there is hot breakfast buffet which changes daily. Definitely helps keep costs down and is a good start to the day. In the evenings Monday-Thursday the hotel hosts a beverage and snack period which gives each person two alcoholic drinks, with choices of wine or beer as well as popcorn, nachos, or chips. Also on Wednesdays they serve hotdogs and burgers for free!
Only a couple of negatives that I can think of: no in room safe, but you can use a safe deposit box at the front desk if you need one. Second, the bed we had was soft. We are used to a stiff mattress so our sleep took getting used to.
Other than that our experience was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at the Hawthorn Suites. You can't beat the price and great staff at this Orlando gem.
