Booked this hotel for a weekend trip. I originally picked the hotel because we were going to Aquatica and there is a free shuttle. To me, there was no point in booking a hotel where I would have to pay for parking and a resort fee and then having to turn around to pay Aquatica to park.

Booked this hotel for a weekend trip. I originally picked the hotel because we were going to Aquatica and there is a free shuttle. To me, there was no point in booking a hotel where I would have to pay for parking and a resort fee and then having to turn around to pay Aquatica to park. We arrived at 9:00 am and to our surprise the room was ready! The room was very clean and spacious. My only complaint is this hotel does not have a glass shower but the tub is a garden tub so you will not feel cramped. We also had a late dinner at the bar. The food was surprisingly very good and not overpriced. We would stay here again because of the location, customer service, shuttle, and cleanliness. Read less

This hotel could definitely use some updating and the exterior of the building needs to be pressured washed. Driving up to this hotel for the first time, the impression looks run down because the exterior needs to be cleaned. Inside the hotel, it is huge and impressive. The interior atrium has restaurants and there is a Starbucks and an ice cream shop. The room is very big and the bed, linens and pillows were very nice. We ordered room service and it appeared in a flash. It was wonderful! The salmon Caesar salad was excellent and the tomato basil soup was really delicious. The customer service with room service, check in and at the restaurant was top notch. I ordered the chicken wings and they were the best I have had !! Recommend those and the chicken sandwich. Overall we were happy with our stay - just wish the property and rooms were updated. Read less

There were a 100 people at the pool on Monday at 11am. You think they might want to accommodate them but nope. If this was just a business hotel I get it. But we are in Orlando!!! Expected much more.

Stayed here for a wedding. It is an easy drive from the airport and centrally located. The room was in need of updating and the noise in the hall at night was bad. One night at midnight I could hear vacuuming in the hall outside our door. Very annoying.

I had not tried the restaurant but was told my colleagues that it was quite good. I’d certainly stay here again. Read less
