I was "unfortunate" to be "stranded" in Orlando on Feb 22, thanks to a winter storm in the midwest.
My travel agent booked me with a last minute reservation at the Renaissance Orlando Airport hotel.
I arrived at the Renaissance to find a party in the lobby - they were celebrating their grand re-opening after a complete end-to-end remodel. The party included free food & drink along with some live entertainment. The party looked like fun, but I wasn't in the mood and headed out for a nice quiet dinner. The party was over when I returned a few hours later. I'm sure a good time was had by all.
The room was very clean and comfortable. The decor was classy and modern. The queen sized bed was soft and very comfortable. The bathroom was large and included a phone next to the toilet. I'm sure some people find that helpful, but I think it's just gross.
The fitness center, like everything else, was freshly remodeled and included several brand spanking new cross country ski machines, treadmills, and bikes. There was also a weightlifting machine. All of the machines included personal LCD television screens.
The free continental breakfast for Marriott Gold members in the 9th floor lounge was nice.
While this location is not quite as convenient to the airport as the Hyatt inside the terminal, it is a close second.
A note of advice for those with rental cars: the nearest gas station is (in)famous for its price gouging - they routinely charge at least $1 more per gallon than two other gas stations just a half mile further down the road.
