“Great for an overnight with an early morning flight”
Reviewed April 30, 2010

Stayed here one night before an early morning flight the next day. Bid on Priceline and got this hotel for a Friday night at $55+ which is quite reasonable. Lobby is very attractive as was my room. Staff was helpful and pool area looked great. There is also a nice fitness center.The bar offers good value during happy hour. Shuttle service to and from MCO is courteous and efficient. Several moderately priced restaurants are within walking distance.
Advice to those returning a rental car. DO NOT fill your tank at the two gas stations just north of the hotel. They charge over $4 per gallon and are proud of it - the entire Orlando area seems to enjoy bilking tourists. There are more moderately priced gas stations further north - less than $3 per gallon.

From the mouth of a frequent traveler whom has stayed at almost all the top notch hotels near MCO Orlando airport this is by far my favorite. The hotel is newly remodeled, completely beautiful. It has a very modern european atmosphere. It is located about one mile from the airport, free shuttle included. There is an $8 parking charge, which includes a gated parking lot. You need the gate card/hotel key to enter and exit the parking lot which I feel is very appropriate. The staff is extremely friendly and kindly met all my needs. The fitness center is in very good shape and includes weights as well as cardio machines. This hotel is a must stay if your looking for something fancy and comfortable near the Orlando airport. Stay away from the Crowne Plaza and book here!

I was disappointed with the Renaissance Orlando Airport Hotel. When I arrived (12:30 am) there were no porters or valet service at the front door. Self-parking is $8/night. When I checked in, the agent told me to use my room key to open the parking gate, but it didn’t work. Used the intercom and someone opened the gate remotely. Room was large, furnishings looked modern European and in good shape. The room had one very small window. I was wondering if I would be hearing jets coming and going from MCO airport, but the room HVAC was so loud this wasn’t an issue… The tub had considerable mold and the grout wasn’t in good condition. There was also some hair by the sink. There was also a bottle of Aquafina water in the room for $4 and a charge for internet access, which I didn’t use. Upon checkout, the parking charge was not on my folio, although I saw the night attendant key it in. Again, my room key wouldn’t open the gate and the person who answered the intercom said I would be charged $8 for parking; I hope I’m not charged twice. I booked this Hotel through Hotwire for $55; I wish I had selected one of the 3 star hotels instead.

Just like the airlines this hotel tacked on charges for numerous items which I believe should be complimentary; the main one being parking. There were a number of similar hotels in the cul de sac, none of which charged for parking which happened to be $8.00 per night. Then there was a charge for internet- that is if you had your own computer, otherwise they charged by the minute. and of course-no complimentary breakfast which was more than the parking. I found the dreaded mold in the tub and stains on the chair. and one final complaint is that there were no automatic doors which caused awkwardness in bringing in luggage, etc.

We stayed at this hotel on the back end of our Disney tri. We booked in advance and paid in advance. The room was great clearly just renovated. I did not eat in the restaurant but it looked to have a great happy hour. We had a seven am flight the next morning so we had to leave for the airport early. It is nice that they offer shuttle service but it not only services the Renaissance but also the Courtyard we missed the shuttle because it left early for the Courtyard and we had to take a cab. I also advise not to refill your rental car at the gas station nearest the hotel because it has no sign and we didn’t realize the price was four dollars a gallon when every else it was about two. Other than that it is a great hotel with a great location will stay again

Stayed here on a 1 night layover through a Hotwire booking. Excellent stay all around. Very well kept property, good amenities, excellent on-site restaurant, shuttle service was prompt and efficient. Didn't use the pool or gym but both looked very good. Puzzled by some of the less than glowing reviews. We travel extensively and this property was excellent all around. Would stay again even at a higher rate. Blew the doors off the Hyatt Regency (stayed previously) attached to the airport in our opinion. Highly recommended.

Landed in Orlando at 11pm so it was quite late. Had to call for shuttle which took forever to come. Seemed like the guy was getting off for the night and had to call him back. Did they not look at airline schedules? Had to go to TGI Fridays across the street/pond for food and had to walk back in the cold. Our room key did not work 2 my husband had to run down twice and then they switched us rooms. It was almost 1 am and I was tired and sleepy and upset for the run around. Hotel lobby was impressive and the rooms were okay also. Comfortable and clean.
