I stayed recently at the Orlando International Drive Embassy Suites when I got to town the night before I was to check in at my convention hotel. It was adequate, but nothing special.
First, the facility looks fairly old. It’s the atrium design that is so prominent in Embassy Suites. The rooms have large windows that face out onto the walkway, so you have to make sure the drapes are closed if you don’t want passers-by watching you watch TV. The room was clean and had the usual kitchenette. There was flat-screen TVs in the living room and bedroom. There was a charge for internet use, but since I was there for only one night, I went without.
The manager’s reception wasn’t as nice as others I’ve experienced at Embassy Suites. The service at the bar was fine, but the snacks were limited to pretzels, popcorn and pita bread and dip. It might be that it’s because there are so many families there who’d otherwise make a meal of the hors d'oeuvres .
The breakfast was also not as nice as others I’d experienced. To get any hot food, you had to wait in line. It was OK at the early hour I was there, but I suspect as the families come down for a pre-theme park meal, the line could get pretty long.
So, the Embassy Suites worked for the one night I was there, but for a longer business trip stay, I might look elsewhere.
