Following a transatlantic cruise, we headed to Orlando for a 3 night stay at the Holiday Inn. We chose this hotel due to its' close proximity to the Disney attractions, Downtown Disney and of course the high traveller ratings. Upon arrival we were allocated a room on the 9th floor overlooking Downtown Disney. We had a great view of the Disney and Epcot firework displays each evening, which was great.
The hotel itself is nicely located in the Buena Vista area. The room was extremely large and comfortable and the balcony with picture window a pleasant surprise. The Kingsize bed was very comfortable, with a choice of pillows; housekeeping did a nice job keeping everything clean. There is a coffee-maker, fridge and microwave which is very handy.
I was surprise at how quiet the room was - the hotel was full. The large central atrium was very different. Other hotel facilities included a gift shop, small general store, bar and restaurant, conference rooms etc. The pool area, (although we did not use) looked attractive and had nice private seating areas.
The hotel staff were extremely pleasant and helpful; we purchased attraction tickets quickly and without fuss or pressure. We did not use the shuttle bus on this occasion, but felt this would be very helpful for those without transport.
We used the Valet parking with ease ($16:00 per day) which we found to be a great service. Ernie at Valet was especially knowlegeable and friendly.
Overall, we could not fault this short stay and would highly recommend the Holiday Inn for the central location, cleaniness and high level of staff and service.
