A friend invited me to join her on a shopping holiday covering a Thanksgiving and Black Friday so I took her up on her offer.
I have been to Orlando on four prior trips and have stayed in the Downtown Disney Resort area or in a Disney property, whilst this hotel wasn't as luxurious as those it was more than adequate for a non theme park trip hotel, we stayed in one of the two storey blocks very close to the swimming pool and vending machines.
The location on iDrive was perfect as we didn't have a car, within a very small distance was McDonalds, IHOP, Denny's, The Tilted Kilt, Panda Express, Burger King and Walgreens. Also in walking distance but slightly further along was Chilli's and TGI Friday's. Outside the International Drive entrance was a bus stop for both local buses and the iRide trolley, of which I used both, both were reliable and air conditioned (same side of road for destinations South and across the crossing for destinations North of the hotel).
Also within easy distance of the hotel was the Walmart Supercentre on Turkey Lake Road, a round trip with the taxi firm that is bookable from the front desk was $20 and takes 10-15 minutes each way depending on traffic.
As for the room it was lovely, kept clean by the brilliant housekeeping staff who could not do more to help you. One of the best features was the wet bar at the back of the room with an under counter fridge, a microwave, a sink and a large storage area with a door through to the toilet and bath/shower.
The pool was slightly chilly but a welcome chill on the warm (26 degrees C) days of which there were a few :) I'd happily stay here again.
