Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 1, 2014

This is an older Courtyard Marriott but kept up very well and looks brand new on the inside. The rooms are very clean and seems to overall have an excellent housekeeping staff. It is right off of International Drive near the Orlando convention center and convenient to everything. This is a good property.

Stayed here for a 2 week holiday in late February. From check in the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. As we were a family with two rooms booked they arranged for us to have adjoining rooms without us putting in a request. They were always welcoming when we got back from a day out and were very helpful with any requests or needs. The Hotel is in a really good location on international drive, all of the parks were only a short drive away. There was a small supermarket over the road which was handy and there are numerous good restaurants and diners near the hotel. Would definitely go back here on another holiday and would recommend as a good place to stay

We stayed here recently for a two week family holiday. The hotel is well located for both visiting the parks and for local restaurants - we particularly liked Bahama Breeze and the Millers Ale House Restaurant which are both just along International Drive.

We were allocated adjoining rooms which were clean and comfortable, and well serviced by our housekeeper. We especially appreciated the fresh brew coffee filter machines. Our rooms overlooked the parking lot, and we had no trouble with traffic noise. The free wifi was both fast and stable.

What set the stay apart, however, was the outstandingly friendly and helpful reception team. Every time we returned to the hotel we were greeted with a genuine welcome and interest in where we had been that day, how we had enjoyed it, and our plans for the rest of our stay. No advice or help was too much trouble. Work patterns meant we inevitably got to know some better than others, but it would be unfair to single out individuals for praise, as the whole team was excellent.

We will definitely be returning here again on our next trip and would recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced and centrally located base in Orlando.

I stayed here for a two week holiday in late February. From the outset the hotel staff were excellent, welcoming us and making sure any requests and needs were dealt with.
There were quieter a few long trips involved in our stay, and the room was a comfortable haven when we returned.
The location of the hotel is ideal, very close to several excellent eateries, all walking distance.
The main thing that made the stay so pleasant was the staff, nothing was ever too much trouble.
To conclude, if your after a well run hotel in a good location at a reasonable price in Orlando, look no further.

We appreciate your business and you taking the time to post a review. You are right when you say that we are ideally located just of International Drive but still within walking distance to many dining locations. We are also conveniently located where the I Ride Trolley can shuttle you to other areas of International Drive like the Premium Outlet malls. We are also very fortunate to have a truly engaged staff that likes to take care of the guests.
thank you again and hope to see you next time you visit Orlando.

I stayed here last week on a holiday to Orlando with my husband and teenage son, and found the hotel to be an ideal location for visiting all the parks. There were some great places to eat nearby, particularly The Brickhouse just a short walk away which was recommended to us by Jake on reception who was very helpful and friendly; he even helped us arrange for some baguettes to be delivered to the hotel for us one evening when we arrived back to the hotel late and starving and the hotel restaurant was closed.

The rooms were large, clean and spacious with two double beds, and coffee making facilities. It would have been nice to have had a few biscuits in the room to snack on when we got back late but there is a small shop in the hotel where we could buy some snacks and drinks. We had a room on the ground floor with a patio door facing the pool which was ideal for my son and his friend who was staying in the next room as they often went for a swim in the early evening. They thought the pool was fantastic as it was open until 11pm and was always warm. There was also a small gym which they enjoyed using. The free internet was an added bonus!

Overall I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

We appreciate your review and comments and hope that your visit was a relaxing experience.
Your comments about our swimming pool being private and comforting for your son to enjoy are correct and we pride ourselves with providing a relaxing experience. This year we will be replacing our pool furniture which will give it an upgrade. Complimentary Wifi everywhere in the hotel including the pool and the Courtyard area is also something most of our guests appreciate. We hope to see you again when you visit Orlando next.

We stayed here on a trip to Florida with our children last week. We asked for adjoining rooms which we got and worked perfectly. The hotel room was clean and had everything we needed, and the hotel facilities were very good.

The only thing that that stops this from being an excellent is that the rooms were not being cleaned until after 4pm on a couple of days. After running around Disney all day after the kids you just need to go back and chill for a while.

I would certainly recommend it for anyone, the location is superb and the parking is easy.

My husband and I have just returned from an 11 night stay at this hotel and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. The hotel itself is set back a little from I Drive which makes it seem so peaceful. Having seen tips from previous guests we emailed in advance to request a quiet room and were on the third floor and although we were towards the rear of the hotel we were allocated a room overlooking the courtyard as opposed to the freeway which runs to the rear of the hotel and is very busy!

The room was spacious and very comfortable we both slept soundly each evening, there was plenty of space in the wardrobe and housekeeping was great the room was always ready when we returned. All the staff with one exception could not have been more helpful and were always there with a cheery welcome whenever we came through the door. The only negative person was on duty in the restaurant area one evening when we returned we were tired and fancied getting a pizza to take back to the room, when we asked this particular young lady just said 'I don't think we have any ' I think on gauging our reaction she reluctantly said 'Do you want me to check?' which seemed an obvious question and she should not have needed to ask! Anyway she was correct but she didn't offer anything else just said no we don't have any when she returned. We quickly solved this by popping over the road to Cici's Pizza for a takeaway. There was a small problem on the evening of the Superbowl when the Fox feed to the bedrooms went down just before it was due to start, my husband always likes to watch in the room. However the hotel had an alternate feed available in the bar and let everyone know when the room feed was fixed so couldn't fault them for that, I believe my husband said they were putting some food on for those watching when he left to come back to the room

This hotel is in an ideal location on I Drive within easy walking distance of lots of restaurants but also on the trolley route for anyone who cannot walk far, one of our favourites was the Brick House Tavern and Tap which was only a couple of stops away but a very easy walk for us, will be reviewing it once I've finished this one!! The hotel gladly agreed that we could keep the room a little later on our final day which was a great help allowing us to play golf at Pirates Cove (very good and well maintained) and enjoy a ribeye special at the Brick. We really enjoyed the Brews & BBQ at SeaWorld (especially Alan Jackson on the evening of our first full day (thank you Willie Nelson for cancelling as I never thought I'd get the chance to see Alan Jackson live being from the UK!) we also got to see the Mardi Gras parade at Universal (and grab a load of beads) and also took in the B Street Springsteen Tribute Band at Hard Rock Orlando who were good (although nowhere as good as the real thing!!)

Weather was on the whole good although the first couple of days whilst very warm were quite grey with early morning fog which we have not come across in the past, the next few days were really hot reaching a high of 85 degrees, although we did notice when it then dropped to mid 60's for a couple of days but it soon warmed up again. We used both the I ride trolley and the Lynx bus system to travel around including to Disney and the Florida Mall and found both very easy indeed. Pointe Orlando was as usual very busy with the Conference crowd and many of the places were often closed for private parties because of this.

As some have said the gym is small with only 3 pieces of equipment which is fine if its just the two of you using it, we did find that we could run outside every day if heading South up I Drive there were no major roads to cross for at least half a mile just the entrance roads to hotels. There is a lot of development happening on the north side of the road at present so will be interested to see just what's there when we return again.

We would be very happy to return to this hotel in the future, although having checked prices on our return we have spotted a couple of possibilities that may work out cheaper so may try one of those to compare but if not would love to return if we could get the right price!!

Room Tip: Ask for a courtyard view if you don't want to overlook the busy road to the rear of the hotel

Thank you for your review and we are glad that your visit from the UK was a great experience. From reading the review we can see that you certainly took advantage of the hotel's central location by visiting SeaWorld, Universal's Citywalk, local restaurants and miniature golf which are within walking distance or a short ride away. We regret the experience in the Bistro and will address the issue. We have hosted many visitors from the UK and South America and feel that our service, product and location is ideal for anyone visting Orlando for the first time or a returning visit.
Sincerely.
