“Clean, quiet and close to attractions/amenities. Exceeded exceptions!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

We stayed here for 12 nights in first 2 weeks of October 2012. Floridays is close to all the attractions but still in a quiet and more "classier" area of International Drive. Publix, Premium Outlets and a 7Eleven are literally a stones throw away. Staff were very friendly and helpful especially Wayne on reception who checked us in quickly and efficiently. I had requested beforehand for a high floor which was honoured and we were placed in building F on the 5th floor. View from room was lovely and overlooked the small lake and quiet pool area. The room itself was very clean and was more than ideal for our needs. My son had a massive double bedroom to himself with TV and closet. Kitchen includes huge fridge freezer, microwave, cooker, kettle, coffee maker, waste disposal unit, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer PLUS every utensil you can think of! There is a large dining area with a dining table to sit 6 and a large lounge area with flat screen LCD tv. The master bedroom is again big with a huge bed! Unsure of the size but it fitted 4 pillows across lengthways so that gives you an idea! The big bonus for me was the free wi-fi which was pretty speedy plus the two bathrooms. One smaller next to the double bedroom and the en-suite bathroom which connects to the master suite. It included a jacuzzi and walk in shower plus a closet (which includes the safe) and plenty of cupboard space. Balcony was of a good size and included two chairs and glass topped table and an overhead fan. Rooms were attended to daily, beds made, trash emptied and fresh towels left - the house keepers were pleasant and friendly. We had a main room clean on the Saturday of our stay where sheets were replaced and a full clean of the suite was done.

Normally I sleep badly in hotels due to the noise levels but our building quiet and far away from the road. I slept like a log every night! You could occasionally hear people above you but in hotels you cannot eliminate all noise and it certainly did not stop me from sleeping. There is currently construction going on to the west side of the complex but again this did not present a noise problem to us during our stay.

We enjoyed the pool, bar and cafe areas especially the quiet pool which we had to ourselves every time we visited it. Like the main pool it has a small spa area which is great to use after a long day in the parks. The main pool always seemed 'busy' but not to the point that it was unpleasant to use and sit by. It did seem a lot busier in the evenings though.

We only had two small issues during our stay. One day we were left no clean towels and had to call down for them but they were sent up within 30 minutes, also our Jacuzzi stopped working! These issues were addressed promptly although the Jacuzzi never did get fixed right :(

All in all we loved our stay at Floridays and would certainly stay here again! Its a great size for families and is close to all the attractions and amenities.

Room Tip: Buildings E&F are quieter as they are situated toward the rear of the complex. If you wanna be n...

Recommended to all loved the stay here. Family rooms were amazing! Wish I had stayed here longer. The pool was a little cool but other than that it was so nice. Transportation to shops and theme parks were readily available for a cheap price and theme parks were free to get to. All our questions were answered with knowledge and the staff knew a lot about the area. The next time we come to Orlando we will definitely stay here again.

Front desk staff is courteous and friendly. The bedrooms for the 3-bedroom suites are average size, but the bathrooms are large. The living room area is also spacious. The kitchens have got pretty much everything you need. We were 6.5 in total (6 adults, one child). They had a crib and a high chair in the room for us upon arrival, which was a nice touch. One night they had only given us 4 towels, but they were quick to give us a few more. These little errors can happen, it's how you respond. They responded quickly and it didn't really slow us down. My only complaint is that the shower pressure was absurdly low. The pool area looked great, though we didn't use it. The little cafe by the check-in doesn't have many options for breakfast, but they do have starbucks drip coffee which is surprisingly better than the quality at normal starbucks.

Dear Michael V -- Thanks for the review, and good to hear that our staff did a good job, rooms were excellent and that the coffee was even better than Starbucks. I apologize for any mix-up on the towels, but I'm happy to hear that we responded quickly. I hope to see you back some time in the near future.

This is our 5th visit to Floridays and we still have no complaints. Our overall experience was excellent, but the rates sometimes seem a little high. I am hoping that in the future they will offer a discount for being a Florida Resident and/or a AAA discount. The location to all the theme parks is excellent, as we even took a trip to Legoland in Winter Haven and it didn't seem far away at all. We always feel very safe here. We traveled with my two grandchildren and the fact that they had their own bedroom and television was great. There were 5 of us and our two bedroom suite has all the amenities anyone could ask for. We can't wait to return to Floridays, as it always feels like home.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet and large. It really doesn't matter which building you are in, as they a...

Perfectly located. Located in the middle of the Disney and Universal parks, less than five minute drive to Seaworld, Discovery cove and Aquatica. Ideal Transport just outside the Floridays drive ways.

The suites themselves are first class, everything you need for a perfect stay in Florida. Floridays actually is perfect for families with children, as we found with three kids in our Party. There is more than enough to keep them occupied on any days that you decide to rest from the parks, including a great pool area and Arcade Games Room.

Really would recommend this place highly.

Also, when you do book your stay at Floridays, there are three things you must do:

- The 16oz Prime Rib in the Outback Steakhouse, which is less than 5 minute walk from Foridays.
- Seven and 7 drink at the pool bar for a relaxing evening (7up and Seagram 7 whisky, extremely refreshing)
- Keke's Breakfast, which is a 10 minute drive at the Mall of Millenia, but the breakfasts are amazing.

Dear Tom L -- Thanks for the review and great tips for those planning their visits here. You're right, the pool and game room are great ways for the kids to stay occupied on non-theme park days. I'm sure others will appreciate those dining and drink tips. I can't wait to see you back with us on your next Central Florida visit.

OK hotel with good location on the quiet end of International drive. We had a 3 bedroom suite, here there was plenty of room and all the facilities. Somewhat worn and old-fashioned.

Good wireless network with good speed and good coverage both in the room and by the pool.

The hotel / resort consists of several buildings, some of which are located far away from the reception and pool. No control of access into the area or into the individual buildings, it felt somewhat unsecure. Also something dirty in public hallways in the buildings.

Dear Oddie99 -- Thank you for the review. We are just completing a "soft-goods" renovation, and, perhaps, some of those items you felt looked a bit worn will be totally replaced, before the end of the year, and by the time of your next visit. I'm concerned that you felt some of the public areas were dirty. I'll pass that along to our Housekeeping Department, and make sure they keep their focus on these areas. I look forward to your next visit, so you can see our new renovation.
