“Your average Courtyard”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

I have been here for some meeting/courses (5 Days), this place is the average, as expected Courtyard, nothing fancy. A bit overpriced, (place next door is about half price), but I have to say, it is clean, quiet and nothing wrong with it. I would like to see the gym better equipped, (1 treadmill, 1 stationary bike and 1 more machine.... that's it !!).
Bar/cafe' is pretty useless, wait time is huge even if you are the only customer, but within 3 min walk you have as many restaurant as you like.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about our hotel. We appreciate your feed back and as always will use it to help improve our service and product. You mentioned the capacity of the exercise room and yes we are adding more exercise equipment now that we have completed the expansion of the existing space. We are also members of the YMCA right next door which our guests can utilize at no charge. I will share your comments about the wait time in the Bistro and we will look at ways how we can expedite the service in that area. We are happy that you liked the location as it is very convenient for the Orange County convention center and within walking distance to many restaurants on International Drive.
We appreciate your business and hope to see you when you visit Orlando next.
Nirmal Hans.

I was at this hotel for the second time recently and was very happy with my stay. All of the staff here are wonderful from the front desk to housekeeping. The hotel and rooms are all very clean and they have made the gym bigger. Hopefully, they will add more equipment soon. As I said in my original review, they do offer guest passes to the Y for another workout option, but I was fine with the treadmill and bike. I did not have time to use the pool, but it looked well maintained. The hotel is also close to lots of restaurants and shopping on I Drive. It is not a huge resort type hotel and that is what I like about it. i will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Away from freeway side.

Great location, super friendly staff and nice room. This isn't a high end Disney hotel, but I believe this hotel provides excellent value for money. Good location for all of the parks and malls. The pool was adequate for our needs, but it's a simple rectangular pool unlike some of the other hotels which cater more for entertaining the kids. Added bonus was no charge for parking. Would definitely return.

Just of International Drive close to Point Orlando but you would never guess this from the hotel that is tucked away on Austrian court and surrounded by well kept gardens.
Quiet and relaxed atmosphere but close to everything you need.
Room are spacious and spotlessly clean,and kept that way by housekeeping.
They were there every day and did a great job.
Met at reception after a long flight with a smile and very friendly welcome. After a quick check in, got to the room, right by the pool on the ground floor and next to the exit onto the North car park.
Easy walking distance to all the local sports bars and grills yet far enough away so you could not be disturbed by them.
Transport, food, markets, restaurants all on the doorstep and easy to reach without the need for a car.
Millers ale house the best of the lot with Denny's over the road a poor last.
I have stayed in better but not many considering what you pay and nothing to beat the staff who went out there way to help.
Free parking was a big plus as well.
No in-room safe but free use of a security box at reception.
Beds outstanding and highly recommended.
Even though we stayed over thanksgiving and Black Friday you could not tell and it never really gave the impression of being full.
Highly recommend this hotel and will stay there when back in town.

Room Tip: The ones facing the pool are the best

I make it a point to stay at the Courtyard Buena Vista Centre, because its walking distance to several restaurants, is quiet, large balconies and the service is very good. I was VERY surprised to find that I almost like this property better! You really don't feel like you are on international drive, you drive about 40 yards off the main street and you are at the property. So..its nice an quiet, just what I want after ending a hectic day working a show. I have to say that the people at this property are REALLY good...especially Darius (spelling?) at the front desk. He remembered my name (which I certainly don't expect, but when they do..its a pleasant surprise) and was helpful with some boxes I had shipped to the hotel. The people working the mini bistro there are also very pleasant. The room was clean and well maintained...only drawback was a very small balcony compared to the other property. Like most courtyards, the courtyard in the middle of the property was very comfortable and was a great place to relax in the evening. Twice while I was there I walked to the "Brickhouse Tavern" which was less than a 10 minute walk and had a casual but good meal. I will definitely put this on my VERY short list (2...lol) of places to stay in Orlando.

Stayed 7 nights over thanksgiving booked through Virgin Holidays we had 2 rooms.
Could not fault this fantastic hotel at all
Rooms spotless, and very well maintained .housekeeping great. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever stayed in Orlando. ( over 20 years) Came with fridge and coffee maker. Well furnished.

Position is just perfect . 2 minute walk to international dr and all the bus stops, Pointe Orlando 8 minutes walk or 2 minutes in car.

Staff also made this stay brilliant , Mitch , Duane , Jake and Louise are the ones we spoke with mostly. We were always welcomed back after a day out which made it feel like home.

Free Internet in all rooms and round pool was fast, plenty of free parking , choice of food and drinks from the bistro and in the small market (shop)

We spend each afternoons sitting round the pool or in the courtyard , it was never busy and the water in the pool was so hot .it was a pleasure to sit in the courtyard as the grounds are so well maintained.

Thank you form making this stay fantastic . We will be back !

We used this hotel whilst staying in Orlando on our way to and from Port Charlotte. Peaceful location but superbly located on International Drive so convenient for all of the amenities of Orlando. Great room, clean and with comfortable beds, just what you need after a transatlantic flight. All of the staff were friendly and polite and could not do enough to help. On our way in we were allocated a room facing Interstate 4 which could have been a problem if we were not so tired! For our outbound trip on Dec 2 we requested an inside room which was fine. The restaurant and bar was fine but I thought pretty pricey so plan to eat out, that being said it was convenient and handy for the odd beer. We will definetly use this hotel on our next trip to Florida
