I just returned back from Orlando this morning, 11 Dec 2013. I was travelling with a friend and we had an evening flight departure yesterday, but had to check out of the Metropolitan Express by 11 am. We decided to go out for the day and return back to the hotel later in the afternoon. When we asked if there was anyplace we could leave our luggage within the hotel for a few hours, the receptionist replied "there is no where in the hotel we could leave them". He then suggested we take our bags to The International Palm Resort Hotel, to leave the bags with them in their left luggage room. Rather strange to say the least. Never in all my travels, did I find a hotel who did not have a room to leave bags in for a few hours. I felt this really let the Metropolitan Express down. Also thought this would be a basic facility for all hotels.
