“Stayed here again”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We had a decent two room suite on the 4th floor, facing the north parking lot. A lot of noise from the parking lot in the early morning, but I do think I'm the only one it actually woke. The rooms were clean enough and in good shape, we were comfortable. I still wish they had a two room suite with either one king and two twins or one queen and two twins. As my kids get older the pull out couch becomes a less comfortable option for them.

The lobby renovation is done and it looks marvelous. They also remodeled the breakfast area. There's a little bit of a problem with congestion if they're booked full and you try to get breakfast in the last 30 minutes of the time period they offer it in. It would be nice if they offered slightly longer hours on breakfast, after a long day at the parks the previous day, it's hard to get the kids up to eat by 9:00am. They're tired and want to sleep in a little more. Presumably that's a common problem for many families since they breakfast area is very busy between 8:30 - 9:00am. I'm assuming it's not quite so congested if you get down there earlier.

The location is a quick walk away from International Blvd where you can find plenty of restaurants and stores. We actually walked out the back side of the property and through the adjacent hotel's parking lot to be right on I-Drive. Miller's Ale House is a couple blocks down, Cici's Pizza is practically across the street and there are dozens of other options within a stone's throw. There's a Walgreen's (24 hr if I recall) just a block away. Very convenient.

I'll repeat that this location is more convenient to Universal, but we stay here when we visit Disney too because I typically see better rates here than at the other Residence Inns in the Orlando area. WDW is only a 20 mins or so drive away depending on the traffic on 4, which was fairly heavy, especially in the evening rush hour time period.

Room Tip: avoid odd numbered rooms, all floors that face the north parking lot. Ask for even numbered/interio...

I stayed at this hotel while attending a conference at the Orlando Convention Center, March 17-21, 2013. This hotel is conveniently located near the Orlando Convention Center on a quiet location behind all the action on International Drive. There is open pasture across the street from the hotel where you can see horses. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent and there is always good coffee and lemmonade in the lobby throughout the day. The evening reception is more like dinner. On Italian night they had lasagna, salad, rolls, dessert, wine, beer, fruit, and vegetable lasagna. The bed was very comfortable and the lighting in the room was very good. The shower was great. The only negative is that there is no safe in the room.

Booked a 1-bedroom suite using points. Check-in was a breeze. We arrived at around 1pm, and was told room was not ready. 15 minutes later, I received a call notifying us that our room was ready. Suite was spacious and everything was in order. Its location was perfect: close to International Drive, but not in the traffic mess. The only complaint I have was that the A/C unit was housed in the bedroom and it was very noisy when it's on. All other aspects were good.

Any hotel can provide you with a few great days, the staff at this hotel provided my family with 100 great days. The staff was always friendly and genuinely happy to see us, especially my dogs, walk through the front door. I have always been loyal to the Marriott brand and this hotel personifies the reason that I remain loyal.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Orlando area.

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.
