Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Orlando Lake Buena Vista
Ranked #80 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 31, 2014

We keep returning to Hawthorn Lake Buena Vista and the reason is very simple: it sums up everything we need in a hotel and more!
1. Location: The best possible in Orlando for park-goers or shoppers alike. (believe us, we have been visiting Orlando twice a year for 2 decades now!). Located on a calm street but at the same time near restaurants (Olive Garden, Macaronni Grill, Red Lobster, Burger King and much more), the Disney entrance, Sea World, Orlando Premium Outlets Vineland, Downtown Disney and supermarkets including a Walmart Supercenter;
2. Rooms: Once again, the best! And...in a couple of months a renovated best! :) The rooms are really big, the bedroom is separated from the living room and the kitchen giving the family lots of privacy. The kitchen, fully equipped, is definitely a plus! Yes, the plumbing is a bit loud and the furniture, the carpets and the TV are a bit dated although super clean BUT...they are actually renovating all the rooms as we speak! Our last stay was at the beginning of May and the renovation was well underway!!!;
3. The employees: At the risk of being redundant...the best! Bernard at front desk, Alfredo at maintenance, Wilma and Brenda at housekeeping make a pretty incredible team!;
4. The perks: Free Wi-Fi and free breakfast that save us a lot of time in the morning! Plenty of parking spaces.
The overall feeling of the hotel is one of a home away from home as I said in my other reviews.
You can't go wrong staying here...especially now with renovated rooms!

Room Tip: Even rooms are quieter.

On a recent visit to our favorite Orlando theme parks we wanted to find somewhere close that was still affordable for a local family. We had recently stayed in a nearby location (across the street) and had a terrible experience, but noticed the Hawthorn Suites sign as we left and decided we would give them a try. We were thrilled on all accounts! The suite was clean and spacious, the front desk staff was very professional and a pleasure to encounter. The hotel was located in a very convenient location to access all the Disney parks (and even offered complimentary shuttle services) and the delicious breakfast each morning was included! We loved our visit at the Lake Buena Vista Hawthorn Suites and will return again soon!

Great service the staff are all friendly. The rooms are
Cleaned every day. The rooms are getting updated as i write this. The breakfast has a great choice and is rotated on a daily basis. You are only 10-15 minutes from all the main parks about 25 dollars in a taxi.
There is a free shuttle from the hotel to disney. I believe their is a shuttle to seaworld and universal i think it is
10 dollars.

You can walk out of the hotel to many shops and food places on 10 minutes max.

The pool is great clean and the jacuzzi is great for after a day at the parks.There is also a basketball area.

They have a games room with some arcade Machines and air hockey and pool you can get the tokens from the main desk.

All in all a great hotel great staff at a great location. I have been to palm parkway before and stayed at a diffrent hotel but i will be returning to hear.

Thanks to all the staff

Kids loved it

Cheers

Great customer service from all employees. Location is perfect for Disney Parks visits. Rooms are dated but it's well maintained and clean. Whole property is really outstanding. Free Breakfast is a big plus and free wifi is a bonus.

Despite me and my partner being competent drivers, we opted for use of the Shuttles and Transfers through Virgin (Virgin were very good in our opinion - great flight, food and selection of movies...)

At the end of Palm Parkway there's a Olive Garden, Burger King, Denny's and a Steak House. This is about a 15 minute walk - continuing on past these, there's also a large "shopping" place with all sorts of restaurants including the obligatory McDonalds. We went to Uno 3 times - great service and very good food. We also make the journey to Downtown Disney on foot twice - it takes about 40 minutes each way. One tactic we used was to walk down Uno for dinner across from the entrance to the WDW as a stop-gap, and walked on to DTD from there. We found the walk fine (we are both 24 though - could be a bit difficult for those slightly older).

The hotel rooms were, as everyone has stated, a tad dated but the beds were extremely comfortable. The update should rectify these issues, and we saw carpet fitters in the hotel commencing with this. The breakfast was to be expected - a tad bland on occasions, but fine to get you going for the day.

The shuttle from the hotel was fine. It drops you off at Epcot, leaving at 8.30, 11.10 or 12.30. It returns from Epcot at 18:00, 20:00 or 22:30, and you choose the return time upon entry to the bus. Epcot was fine to get to all parks and we never had issues with Disney Transport. We got to Seaworld fine as well (via an odd private transfer they sent). Universal is an absolute nightmare, however, and I'd avoid using the shuttle to head there. Its the same bus as the Disney Drop-off, which proceeds on toward Universal whilst picking up further hotels (it took 1 and a half hours!!).

We used a taxi on a couple of occasions. The hotel use the same company as the shuttles. They charged us 12 dollars each way to Downtown Disney and the Vineland Avenue Premium outlets. They couldn't understand our pick-up location from the mall (who doesn't know Ralph Lauren???!!) so we grabbed another taxi and that cost us 9 dollars 60 cents (so it was cheaper!).

All in all, we had a great 2 weeks in a great location. It was peaceful, close to all that we needed and extremely easy to get around without a car.

Great place to stay, being updated so will be even better. Free breakfast always something to eat to please most people. Clean rooms well equipped for a bit of self catering if required. Close to main attractions, you don't even have to use I4 motorway for parks or shopping. Use the facilities and local shops ie Walmart to stock up on coke fruit etc. The friendly staff are a pleasure to talk to and very helpful. The free wifi is a boon for contact home, and online check in from computer/printer in lobby.
Want a good local restaurant you can't go wrong with all you can eat Golden Coral, I have been many times and am quite fussy what I eat but it never disappoints. Not posh but wholesome.
Anyway of all the Orlando hotels I've stayed in & it's a few the Hawthorns would be my first choice.

Good value, friendly and extremely helpful staff. Proximity to Disney a major plus. Suggest driving to the parks as opposed to taking the shuttle. A little dated but updates appear to be taking place. Definitely worth a future stay.
