Couldn't quite believe our suite here, it was a sumptuous size, full of comfort and was more akin to a small apartment, than a hotel room, and with a kitchenette to boot! Such luxury ensured our stay, that started with a friendly and efficient check-in process, indeed the staff whilst low-key were both at all times, and enlivened by great swimming facilities, was very comfortable from start to finish. Our only minor quibble is, that whilst the breakfast was good, tasty and came in bountiful amounts, there wasn't a lot of variety in the foodstuffs offered, which meant after 7 breakfasts they all became a little samey and so-so. Being on International Drive it goes without saying it is centrally positioned, and there is a frequent bus service to the main features at Disney and Universal (and back again) morning, noon and n ight. All in all a fabulous place to stay! Read less

I give this hotel 4-stars (really wish I could give 4.5). The customer service was excellent, even from the managers. I was a long-term resident of the hotel due to covid-19 restrictions that prevented me from going back to work. Although, the hotel had to adopt safety and cautious measures, they still made things possible (new sheets, towels, toiletries, etc.). They were at half the capacity of staff and still managed to be friendly, welcoming, patient, and attentive. The staff (front desk, housekeeping, etc.) always checked on me to see if I needed anything and didn’t make me feel weird whenever I kept extending my dates. I initially went to the hotel thinking I’d be there for 2-3wks only to find out that I’d have to keep extending my stay. The hotel gave me the impression of an apartment and was very comfortable. I was able to take online classes, host virtual meetings, cook breakfast/dinner, utilize the gym, and watch television in peace. I really wish I could give 5-stars but the other guests at the hotel really messed that up. I was there for almost two months and guests hosted parties with loud music at odd hours of the night, hung in the parking lot while drinking and playing music, and sat in the stairwells. Unfortunately, I had to call in complaints multiple times on the late night parties at least every other weekend. However, no matter which hotel you go to you’re taking a risk when it comes to the other hotel guests. Other than the guests, the hotel was more than what I expected for a long-term stay. If I’m ever in the same situation, I’ll definitely return to Sonesta for future accommodations. Thanks for making my experience a pleasant one! Read less
