Unfortunately this hotel bounced - while the TV in the lobby mesmerized the guests and the paid breakfast was probably good - a few problems lurked. Mathew came thru at 1pm when the entire city was booked solid - tight squeeze at 217$ for what he called a king but smirkingly gave us an added pull out coach. Thanks Mat!

Unfortunately this hotel bounced - while the TV in the lobby mesmerized the guests and the paid breakfast was probably good - a few problems lurked. Mathew came thru at 1pm when the entire city was booked solid - tight squeeze at 217$ for what he called a king but smirkingly gave us an added pull out coach. Thanks Mat! The room had water and some snacks but the phone did not work. Cell phone call to front desk indicated the snacks and water were free. Next morning no manager on duty but Kalifornin at the front desk cut 10,000 points for IHG rewards. The carpet did not look that great and don’t expect much shampoo and conditioner. The shower had little pressure. I the best advantage was the shuttle but no trek to Disney. Check out at 11 but extension granted to noon with a knock from housekeeping. She was polite. Read less

Hotel has been nicely upgraded since I stayed here last, nice open space in the lobby and bar area. Great customer service and nice rooms. Free shuttle to the airport every 30 minutes. Recommend if your traveling in/out of MCO and you need an airport hotel.

Worst example an airport hotel that seems to believe they will have few repeat customers and can provide truly appalling service. The shuttle is not a fixed schedule and is not run by the hotel. I waited at airport for 75 minutes. Spoke to hotel during this time and they were rude and generally unhelpful. Spoke to someone that represented themself… Read more
Worst example an airport hotel that seems to believe they will have few repeat customers and can provide truly appalling service. The shuttle is not a fixed schedule and is not run by the hotel. I waited at airport for 75 minutes. Spoke to hotel during this time and they were rude and generally unhelpful. Spoke to someone that represented themself as a manager next morning and the person literally just shrugged and said I should stay elsewhere next time if 75 minutes of my time is that important. So to anyone reading this review: do you value 75 minutes of your own time? If you do, stay somewhere else. Read less

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights prior to relocating cross country. Our check in and experience with the DAY TIME front desk staff was very pleasant. I was greeted for being a Spire Elite member. However, our interactions with the staff after 10 PM and the breakfast staff was beyond disappointing. After checking in we relocated to our house to clear everything out before our house sold. We had a full car load of stuff (7 suitcases, stuff to mail out, various other items). I asked the front desk lady if there was a bell cart. Her response was “if there’s not one over here or by the back door, you need to go ride the elevator to each floor to find one” ... needless to say, we couldn’t find one on the first floor so we just made 15 trips to carry everything. During our two trips to breakfast, the gentlemen greeting you at check in was very nice. The servers on the other hand are no where to be found. They don’t come over to get your drink order, and after you finally get someone to take your order, they forget to bring your order and can be seen behind the Buffett area playing on their phone. For a “full service” hotel, this hotel is far from it. Read less

Nice and clean room, with all you need ( except maybe the microwave for those who maybe need it). If we knew about this hotel earlier, we probably stayed longer. Anyhow, we definitely coming back. One little remark: I cut open my foot by a piece of iron wire from the carpet (probably by vacuuming) I left a warning in the room and told the lady at the Frontdesk. She was very friendly and professional. She directly send a message to the Maintenance, so they can fix it before the next guests arriving. Read less
