“Very accommodating and enjoyed our long visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

My daughter was getting married and this hotel was chosen to host out of town guests. We actually stayed for 8 days and enjoyed our stay. The staff was very accomodating especially Craig who helped us with the reservations. I appreciated having the refrigerator and microwave in the room. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were kept very clean. They have an exceptional breakfast with an omelet station and delicious "granola cookies" were left out in the evening at the front desk. We were able to lounge in their lobby and visit with the out of town guests. It had two nice open areas separated by a fireplace and had a flat screen television. The pool was inviting along with the spa. I was impressed with the workout facility and the variety of equipment. Even the floor was covered with a low impact flooring to bounce around on. I did note that the maid spent some time in there cleaning the equipment. The parking was plentiful out front so did not have to drive around to the side of hotel which was convenient.

Room Tip: If you are a non smoker, ask for a room on a different wing of the smoking rooms. At first they put...

I am very particular when it comes to a hotel's bed as I have 10 rods in my back. We chose a Hilton for the comfort mattress that you can self adjust. It did not disappoint! We stayed on the first floor in a huge room that housed a king sized bed, flat screen tv, microwave, mini fridge and a large bathroom. The fitness center had plenty of options with state of the art machines, free weights, an attached bathroom, towels and an ice cold water machine. It rained most of our trip so we didn't use the pool but it looked lovely.

The hotel is a 30 minute drive to any of the parks and has free parking. The staff went out of their way to make you feel welcome. We will always stay in this hotel anytime we visit Orlando!!!!!!!!

We booked a room for one night during the UCF summer session student move in. The room was spacious and clean. There was a microwave, small refrigerator and coffee maker that we did not even use since we were there just a short time. The air conditioner was quiet and we did not hear any noise from the outside or from the other guests which was quite surprising since it was a busy weekend on the UCF campus and the hotel was quite full of people. We will definately stay again when visiting UCF.

Overall Outstanding without Exception!!! Craig Leysen and his staff were more than willing to help me with any questions or concerns that I had. The receptionists were able to help me with any questions I had about the local area. The dining room staff were outstanding in their service, cleanliness, and service. I could not have asked for a better hotel to stay in!!

The staff was helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. The room was spotless and well appointed, and the furnishings were like new. The bathroom was clean and well maintained. The meeting room was clean and well supplied at every point.

Over the past two years, while traveling, I have stayed at Hilton properties. This property is by far the best Hilton property I have stayed at. From the friendly reception at check in to the extra clean rooms, everything was perfect. The morning breakfast crew were super friendly greeting all customers with a gleeful good morning. They never rested, seeing to our every need. The Housekeeping crew were just as pleasant and greeted me every time I encountered them. The night time bar tender assisted me in the lobby while I was having difficulty with the television, without being asked for assistance. The cook prepared an outstanding meal for our banquet. So much food all delicious. Mr. Leysen coordinated our event and was an outstanding well organized host. I highly recommend this hotel when staying in the Orlando area.

Staff and Management were superlative. Everything was better than other hotels in the area. The room was excellent and housekeeping was invisible. We'd leave the room for a 1/2 hour and when we came back the room had been cleaned and replenished with clean items.
