We stayed at the Embassy Suites for 14 nights in October. The customer service from this hotel is first class nothing is too much trouble.
It's worth asking for a room facing I-drive as these are quieter, you still get some noise from the bars across the road but after a day at the parks will soon be fast asleep.
Rooms are very large if a little dated but this is not a problem as most hotels in Orlando are well used. Beds are comfortable and plenty of pillows. 2 TV's in the room though not much on American TV even if you had the time.
Breakfast is excellent with any combination of omelette you could think of along with eggs any way, sausage, bacon, waffles, fried potatoes and toast and a whole host of cold options. The guys serving the hot food are great. All served from 6.30am-9.30am in the week and 7am-10am weekends.
Managers free drinks and snacks from 5.30-7.30pm with lots of cocktails, beers and soft drinks all served by the excellent Lennex who is a star.
The location of the hotel is great just across the road from the Pointe, which has lots of places to eat and shop, and is well away from the tacky part of International Drive.
All the staff on the front desk were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble, and bellboys always on hand outside for taxi's etc.
Plenty of shuttles to the parks as follows
Disney: Going to Epcot 8.10am, 10.40am
Return 5.15pm, 8.30pm, 9.45pm.
Universal: Going 8.30am, 10.30am
Return 7.15pm, 9.15pm
SeaWorld is a 1 day I-ride pass from front desk.
The outdoor pool is nice, we didn't use the inside one and the gym looked fine if you had time.
In conclusion this is a great hotel for a family holiday with large rooms to spread out in, and will save you $$$ and time with their excellent breakfast which will set you up for the day.
