We were in room 519 and it was nice and clean. It was a good location, close to laundry service and elevator but not too close where it would be loud. Brakfast and dinner were plentiful. Elevator was slow but was expecting that from reviews on Trip Advisor. Very friendly hotel staff. About 20 min walk from Pointe Plaza (shopping, movie theater and restaurants). On the back side of International drive. Idrive has lots of shopping and restaurants.

First I have to say thanks to the wonderful and friendly staff of Residence Inn Orlando Convention Center. They are the definition of "customer service", we enjoyed that everyday we received a personal letter from the housekeeping with a nice message on it. The hotel is very nice and very clean. The one-bedroom suite that we had has plenty of space. A lot of storage space, top quality kitchen with a huge fridge, spacious bathroom and as usual the most comfortable bed in the world. The hotel offers a lot extras such as free high speed WIFI, free breakfast, manager's reception, work out area, laundry etc. The location is also perfect, surrounded by beautiful gardens and other hotels but still quiet and peaceful. The famous International Drive is located just behind the hotel and other well known malls and parks are a few minutes away (by car).

I recently stayed here for an impromptu trip to Disney. I booked the hotel on Hotwire and didn’t know where I was staying until after I committed, but it turned out ok. I got a good rate and we enjoyed our stay.

The Good:

The included breakfast was decent. Hot food and some cold items as you’d expect. Not elaborate but certainly a decent meal before you head out for the day.

During the week they have a manager’s reception in the evening. Free beer, wine and some food items. They had Italian the night we were there. It was fine, decent not great but hey it was included. The beer and wine were cheap but fine.

The room was comfortable. It had a full kitchen, and separate bedroom from living room. The bathroom and closet were functional. There were TVs in both the living room and bedroom, but we don’t watch much TV when traveling and we actually didn’t even turn it on the whole time we were there.

The staff was friendly and helpful.

The location was very convenient to food and shopping. We walked to restaurants on each night of our stay which was nice, we could drink and not worry about having to find a ride home.

The Not So Good:

There was a stain on the couch of our room. It wasn’t that big of a deal but my eyes were drawn to it every time I was in that room and it made me not want to sit on the couch.

There are no ice machines on the floors. Each room has an icemaker in the freezer, but ours was turned off which we didn’t realize until we needed ice. Housekeeping advised us to take a bowl down to the front desk and get some ice from the kitchen, which we did. Kind of inconvenient.

It was difficult to sleep in. Each morning there was yard type work going on outside that was very noisy. Most people probably don't sleep in at a place like this but its something to keep in mind (and we were on the 3rd floor).

All in all though it was a good experience and I can recommend this hotel if you find a good rate.

Room Tip: You might ask which rooms are the most far away from any outside work.

For a family meeting we took two suites that could be joined together. We were 7 adults and we had a lot of space. The kitchen is really well equipped and the fridge is huge for a hotel room.
The hotel was almost full with families with kids (mid November 2012) which was obvious at the long queues for breakfast. In the afternoons the hotel was quieter. I can recommend this hotel when travelling with children or in a big group.

My associate and I stayed at this hotel for three days while attending a conference at the convention center. Throughout the entire stay, the front desk staff and cleaning crew were always responsive and friendly. The rooms were very clean, well-furnished, and provided good work space for us to work while not at the convention center. There were a lot of families on vacation staying there over the weekend and they all seemed to be enjoying their stay.
