SpringHill Suites Orlando Convention Center/International Drive Area

The mattress was so soft we sunk to the middle of bed. Plus the bedroom part of the suite was so small, you felt you were sleeping on top of the LOUD A/C wall unit or in the area for the recessed closet area.
Upon returning to the hotel the next afternoon (after almost 6 hours in Universal Studios) the suite was not serviced. When expressing situation with management, excuses were given...full hotel last night, short on housekeepers, etc.
When trying to take a late afternoon nap, housekeeper kept banging doors on security latch to prevent doors from closing. When asked to stop, she ignored us, turned into room and let door fly against latch again. Call to front desk requesting this to stop immediately did not help.
As a Marriott Friends and Family member, this is not a typical Marriott experience.

stayed at this hotel for 14 nights with my husband and 3 sons couldn't fault it. Excellent rooms very spacious and cleaned to a high standard everyday. Location great, can walk to a large variety of eating places. Hotel situated at the better end of International Drive. Staff excellent especially Vinny at reception.
Pool was ample size for all the time you have to use it, towels provided so no need to take your own. Breakfast offered a great selection to suit all tastes and was a bonus to be included in the cost, breakfast staff very friendly and kept the area spotless. Laundry located on every 2nd floor and was only $1.50 per wash great for families. We are hoping to return next year for our family holiday and would recommend to anyone.

Myself, partner and daughter stayed at this hotel in April 07. This hotel has a good location and it is easy to walk to International Drive. The room was a great size and a suite which is great if you want to chill. We also found the rooms to be very clean and serviced every day by the maid. Breakfast was very busy, sometimes you had to wait for a table as none are allocated for your room, however a good selection of hot and cold food was available to set you up for the day. The pool at the hotel is definitely not for lounging around – to small, and there is no facilities in the hotel for bar drinks or food other than those available at breakfast The shop is well stocked and you can buy treats from their, which is okay during the day, none available in the evening. For those who do not take a car and rely on the bus service from the hotel be prepared as the coach’s are very busy. You can get a cab ordered from reception to take you to Universal and Disney and can easily walk on to I drive for a yellow cab (a lot cheaper). The I Ride does pass the hotel however these are not always on time. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking to stay in a quieter part of Orlando and close to I Drive.

Place is very nicely kept, staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast crew are very attentive, woman walking around cleaning will not let a crumb hit the floor before she's on it.

Excellent just like all the Springhill Suites that I've stayed at. Very clean room and bedding. Staff was very helpful and the location couldn't have been better. Close enough to everything we wanted to do and also to restaurants but was in a quieter area than most of Orlando. We will be back!

Attended a conference in the North/South portion of the Orlando Convention Center and our organization booked us into this hotel. GREAT CHOICE. It is only about a mile away from the N/S convention center and an easy walk if you want to hoof it. Another plus is you can go through the back parking lot and be on International Drive at the Bahama Breeze restaurant which is always good (reasonable drink prices too).

Room 513 was clean and comfy. Tons of towels and 2 TVs (one in bedroom, one in living area). Room is across from the elevators, but you could not hear them from the bedroom as the layout put the bed furthest from the elevators. Lots of pillows. Good blackout curtains. AC worked great. Fridge was cool. Computer hooked into the system effortlessly; RJ-45 cable was already there, no need to use my own.

Breakfast both days we stayed here was nice. We made sausage, egg and cheese muffins and had fruit and yogurt too. Another friend took fruit and yogurt with her for her lunch instead of having to purchase a lunch later. Coffee was not super great, but did its job. The coffee served at the convention center is YUMMYGOOD!

Front desk staff as very good too, making sure my request to be next to a coworker was honored. They even called to make sure the room was alright with me.

All in all, lovely! Definitely hoping we get to stay here next year.

The facility its self is a standard Spring Hill Suites. The hotel is located 1 block off International Drive within walking distance of a ton of nice restaurants. It is close to the Convention Center, Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World. There is a small outdoor "heated" pool, fitness room, game room, and gift shop. The room was very clean (about 25% larger then your standard hotel room). The staff was wonderful. As we walked in the front door we were greated with a great big smile and it got better from there.

When we checked out I left my cell phone charger in the room. I called later in the week and they had found it. They had it behind the front desk and I was able to stop by and pick it up.

The next time we return to the Orlando area I would not hesitate to stay there again.
