“Great hotel, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Excellent choice if travelling without a car. Within walking distance of Downtown Disney and local restaurants about 10 min walk. Check out The Orlando Ale House on 535-reasonable prices in pub atmosphere.Hotel staff very helpful and rooms clean. Disney parks free transportation run every half hour (apart from the waterparks which run 8.15 and 9.15am only.

Room Tip: Upper floors in the Tower facing the pool will give you views of the firework displays

We stayed here for ten nights, 2 adults and our two children age 4 and 5 and could not fault this hotel. the staff are friendly and its location is excellent for the parks, downtown disney the water parks and shopping at the premium outlets and nearby places to eat. the family room with disney view on floor 8 was great for the fireworks at Epcot and the magic kingdom and comfortable with great beds and a high standard of housekeeping. the gym and pool area were good and our kids loved the warm jacuzzi especially after a long day at the parks even in the torrential nightly downpours. we did not eat here due to having a car, there are better and cheaper options elsewhere especially for breakfast (panera bread is fabulous) and we used the resort buses to get to the parks. for the price we paid we would definitely recommend staying here and we will be back on our next disney stay.

Holiday Inn Downtown is perfect for those who want to stay close to all attractions. It is 10 min. walk to Downtown attractions. There are shuttle buses which stop in front of the hotel to visit the Disney Parks. Upper floors had a higher rate but rooms are virtually the same. The rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable.

Lobby is bright and contemporary.There is a bar at the lobby with a convenience food corner attached to it. It sells sandwiches coffee chips etc to take out.

Staff is very helpful, warm and welcoming. Hotel serves buffet breakfast which include scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits yogurt some fresh fruit, cereals and pastriesThere is a live omelet and waffle stations but long lines discourages one from eating freshly cooked eggs every morning. Overall all value is very good for the amount they charge. If you get tired of the buffet breakfast there are several food outlets near by including Mc Donalds, Dany's etc..

Their swimming pool area is OK. It is nice to have the option.

We were very happy with hotel as what we needed in this vacation was convenience, good location, good value and a clean comfortable guest room. Hotel delivered all. If we do not wish to stay in resort, I would definitely come back to stay here next time we visit Disney

We stayed for three days, 2 adults and 2 teens. We had asked for adjoining rooms, booking weeks in advance, but when we arrived they didn't have them. The second room was not too far from the first. This is our only complaint though. The staff are truly excellent in this Hotel. We were offered water bottles on arrival and our room was cleaned perfectly every day with any requests for extra towels, toiletries etc. fulfilled the next day. The valet parking guys were superb, friendly and helpful. The breakfast here is excellent. Really more than we expected in this kind of hotel. Again great service at our table, freshly cooked omelettes and a well stocked buffet table. I noticed they occasionally have a lady making balloon animals for the children which is a lovely touch. The bus connections to the Disney parks and downtown Disney are superb.
We didn't use it, but there seemed to be a lovely pool and for a busy active hotel, it was quiet at night. The rooms are big and airy - not great views where we were, but to be fair, we weren't there for the view.
An excellent hotel, who should be immensely proud of their staff, especially for a Disney visit be it long or short.

MaryHelena2013,

Thank you for taking time to post a wonderful review of our hotel! I am sorry that we were not able to grant you the requested connecting rooms, but glad the rooms were near one another.

Thank you for being an IHG Rewards Member, it is our pleasure to give out bottles of waters to our loyalty members! Our housekeeping staff here is wonderful and always happy to handle any extra requests for our guests. Our valet parking team here is great! They are always willing to help guests at any time with questions or suggestions on where to go while in this area. I am glad to hear you had a wonderful experience during breakfast at our Palm Breeze Restaurant. Glad you enjoyed watching the balloon lady making animals for the children. We offer the transportation to and from the Disney Theme Parks every 30 minutes and then in the evening we have the Downtown Disney Shuttle as well. We do offer Pool View and Downtown Disney View rooms at our hotel.

We hope to see you back soon! Hopefully next time you will have some time to enjoy our zero entry pool!

Thank you!

We stayed in this hotel for 10 days while enjoying the attractions of Orlando. The staff were always helpful and happy to help. We did not have our own car so the location was perfect, a 10 minute walk to Downtown Disney, 15 minute walk to the supermarket and complimentary buses to and from the Disney parks often. Although there was no complimentary transport to other parks such as Universal a reasonably priced taxi service was always available, and they were always very friendly and helpful. For the price we could not ask for much more, and would recommend this hotel to friends. Will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Orlando.

Just returned home to the UK after a 2 week stay at this hotel. The staff were pleasant and friendly and nothing was too much trouble, (particularly Ernie and Albert the car valet guys) and the hotel itself was clean and well maintained.

Our room was visited everyday by the cleaner and beds were made, towels replaced etc and the AC was great considering the humidity!
The location for Downtown Disney was fantastic, a short 10 min walk and you were there, so we couldn't fault this. Shuttle buses to all the Disney parks stopped outside the Hotel and were every half hour so this was great too.
The only downside to staying at this hotel is the parking charges. I stayed for two weeks and had to pay to park my hire car which was not cheap. $112 in total.
By all means the hotel should charge visitors to park, particularly those that wish to use Downtown Disney, but they should not charge residents. This is the only reason I would not stay here again.

Stayed for 3 nights from 28th June, this hotel has many plus points. The location is good for downtown Disney but also for getting onto I4. The hotel is very clean and is at the high end facilities wise for a holiday inn. We dined on our first night and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. Bar is nice with area for taking drinks poolside. Plenty of self operated laundry facilities onsite. Staff were very good and will certainly return here.

Room Tip: Overlooking pool was nice and peaceful, some overlook interstate
