I visited Sonesta ES Suites Orlando, FL this past weekend. I was only there for a weekend getaway to help a friend celebrate her 30th birthday. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite that was awesome. The hotel is newly remodeled and the rooms look great. The hotel is along International Drive in a GREAT location. There are nearby restaurants and bars that are in walking distance. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend. Since we only used the hotel for sleeping I can't disucss any of the hotel amenities but I'm thinking breakfast has to be good because the breakfast area was FULL when I passed through for checkout.

We stayed in a 2 room suite, the bedrooms and sitting areas are great. The kitchen is good for a quick snack although probably not good enough to prepare proper meals, not that this really matters when so many of the restaurants and bars on I Drive are within walking distance. The breakfast provided is a self service selection of cereals, toasts, pastries, fruit and American style hot food and is reasonable enough with its main advantage being the speed and convenience it offers when you want an early start to be first in line at the theme parks. The pool area is basic but ok to relax in after a busy day out. The only negative we found was the lack of balconies to the rooms and outside space in general, you can sit on the 2nd floor pool deck in the evening when the pool has closed but this isn't really convenient unless your room is close by.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms near the pool deck are good, avoid ground floors next to the external gates which ar...

Rooms were amazing due to recent renovations. I just hope they stay that way as this will be my go to place in Orlando. Breakfast first morning was OK. Second morning breakfast seemed to be better but crowded so we ended up at a restaurant.

The hotel was very quiet with the amount of people staying. We always found a parking space. There was key access to enter so we felt very safe.

The elevators seemed to skip the renovations,they were slow or appeared to be non functional off and on.

The water in the bathroom toliets seemed to have a strong odor almost like sulfur or sewage.

Overall its was a great stay and will stay again.
