I traveled to Orlando for a convention in late April/early May 2010. The convention hotels were booked up so I got a good deal with Embassy Suites. The rooms were clean and comfortable and quiet. I am a very light sleeper and was a little concerned when I was above the pool but there was no problem since it closes and they are good at enforcing this rule. The bed was extremely comfortable, not too hard or soft, and it's nice to have the living room between you and the hotel hallway because it reduces the noise.
It was nice to be able to grab breakfast on the way to the convention and though it was nothing special it had a good variety (omelettes, bagels, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt). I agree with the previous reviews that it is annoying to have to pay for internet and that would be my one recommendation to the Embassy Suites is just because other hotels do it doesn't make it right.
The location is great. Walking distance to convention center and very wide selection from restaurants in the area with the I-ride trolley stop right outside the hotel.
This is a very pleasant hotel but the thing that makes it stand out was the service. From the moment you walked in I was impressed. From the attentive check in to their helping me w/ my key to get in to the fitness room as well as the manager's reception. I have stayed in all kinds of hotels and have always felt a hotel is a hotel but one w/ good service is what makes it stand out.
