“Convention center, great location”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

A very nice SpringHill property located within walking distance of the Orlando Convention Center. This property is about 7 miles from Disney World. Breakfast and breakfast room was fresh and clean. No surprises on the menu. Our room had a very tight space between the bed and the closet. I suspect the other rooms are not that way. The elevators were in front of our room.... we never heard them run.. a big plus.

Room Tip: The even number rooms have a slightly better view.

This was a visit to the Orlando and central Florida area and not necessarily to Disney. We did spend one day at Epcot. All of the hotels around here have the free shuttle to Disney parks - a definitely plus! The staff at this hotel were especially helpful and gave advice and information to us on the shuttle, restaurants, etc. The rooms are clean and very spacious. There's a very nice breakfast each morning. We stayed here 3 nights at the beginning of our trip and came back for another night before flying out of Orlando. We will definitely return to this hotel on our next trip.

My spouse and I had a very nice stay at this hotel while in Orlando for the Princess Half Marathon to cheer on family and friends. We took a shuttle from the airport to the hotel. It was $20 total. We were the only pick up and had the shuttle to ourselves and dropped off at our hotel. This hotel is close to the Convention Center and Sea World. It is a 15 minute drive to Disney. We were meeting another couple with a car. Before the end of our stay, we needed to rent a car. They were very informative on where we could rent a car within walking distance of the hotel. The staff here goes above and beyond and were very friendly and extremely helpful. We had more questions than we normally do. They stored our bags until check in as we arrived early in the morning. Many restaurants are close by (Subway, TGIFridays, Bahama Breeze, Johnny Rockets, Maggiano's, and many more). The hotel furnished a list of many restaurants within walking distance with a map. Most are sit down not fast food restaurants. Most fast food chains are on Sand Lake Road. The two queen bed room was very nice and clean and well maintained. Parking was free. The room had a mini fridge and microwave, a sitting area with TV and a second TV in the sleeping area. The hot breakfast included scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, yogurt, apples, bananas, muffins, bagels, etc. There was a TV in the breakfast area. In the evening, there were cookies at the front desk. We did not use the pool or exercise room. We had a senior room rate. We would not hesitate to stay at this property again. We were treated very well.

This was our first time staying at a Springhill Suites and it definitely won't be our last. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, along with the decor and good breakfast made this a fantastic stay.
Pros-
-The breakfast was actually really good. The highlight was make-your-own Belgian waffles. There were also eggs and sausage(not so great), English muffins, bagels, cereal, milk, juice, yogurt and fruit.
-Coffee (not Starbucks but pretty good) all day in the lobby
-Decor was very modern and nice
-Staff extremely (almost over the top) friendly and helpful
We had an issue with the AC not working so great they first night. On our way out to lunch I mentioned it to the receptionist. We got back an hour later, the AC had a whole new control board on it and it was COLD! 20 minutes later the receptionist called to make sure everything was satisfactory.
-Room was nice and spacious. 2 TVs though we didn't even turn them on. Dual head shower, though shower was a little small. Bed was very comfortable, including like 6 feather pillows.

Cons: not many
-parking not ideal. Not much parking near entrances
-ceiling fan in living room wobbly and loud
-plenty of seating in dining area and Internet bar but would have loved to have had a few more lounging type couches/chairs downstairs


Overall, this is one of the best experiences that we've had at a hotel. We're in our early thirties and this time we were traveling without our kids. But this hotel would be fantastic with kids as well. Not super convenient to Disney but it wasn't horrible either. Definitely eat at Giordanos which is the best Chicago style pizza you can get. It's at the corner of Sand Lake rd and Universal Blvd.

The hotel was very clean and the locations is excellent. My most important issue with hotels is the service and assistance of the staff and I can assure you that in this facility they went above the call of duty on both occasions that I required thier help. This was for business and had nothing to do with the hotel itself. I cannot say enough about all.

I am a local and was staying here for a wedding nearby. The service at the front desk was great! Everyone was kind and welcoming from check in to grabbing some snacks after the wedding at 2am. The room was good size with a fridge and microwave and the whole property seemed to be very clean. Parking was ample when we were there. All in all, we had no issues. It's not a luxury property but it's also not something to turn your nose up at. Just a good place to stay!

We stayed here on our recent weekend to Sea World. The rooms were spacious for our family of 3 adults and 1 child. Couple of things that could be improved -- spot clean the carpets as dark spots are disturbing and a bathroom fan would be great. The hotel staff were great! Wish the same could be said for the guests. Why is it every time we go to Orlando, the hotel is full of people wit no manners? Breakfast was miserable because of this . . . stealing the waffle you cooked, sneezing on the utensils, dropping service utensils on the floor, etc. Not sure how to fix that but just an observation.
