Holiday Inn Orlando SW Celebration

Kissimmee, Orlando

Virgin rating

The hotel

This welcoming, modern resort is popular with families thanks to its close proximity to Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando® and other popular theme parks. The standard rooms are comfortable, with plenty of space to get ready for a busy day of thrills! If you're not heading out to the rides, have some fun by the pool, enjoy a cocktail from the friendly pool bar, of even hang out in the games room! Dining out in the evening is a doddle, as there are numerous bars and restaurants just a short walk away, meaning you can leave the car behind and share a bottle of wine moments from your 'home away from home'.

First, the bad. The bathroom sink faucet was unbelievably small! The water extended into the sink ONE inch! That's it! Ridiculously hard to wash hands, brush teeth, anything?! Next the good. The breakfast was great! More like a restaurant than a hotel. Service staff were hardworking and polite. Front desk was kind. Elevators were quick (necessary… Read more
First, the bad. The bathroom sink faucet was unbelievably small! The water extended into the sink ONE inch! That's it! Ridiculously hard to wash hands, brush teeth, anything?! Next the good. The breakfast was great! More like a restaurant than a hotel. Service staff were hardworking and polite. Front desk was kind. Elevators were quick (necessary with such a tall busy place). Pools are nice, although the hot tub is hard to sit in, not sure why but something about the grittiness and angle made it feel like just sitting up straight was a challenge. The beds were fairly comfy although pillows are the "flatten to thin" feather kind. The carpets were the only slightly icky things but I think that's fairly normal for a busy hotel that doesn't carpet clean every week. The little gift shop was a lifesaver for some needed supplies later at night and the woman working there is an absolute GEM. All in all, five stars. :) ...but someone PLEASE change those faucets!!??

It’s an okay place to stay, close to Disney world. The lobby smells horrible each day like cat piss unfortunately. Once we got up to our room hallway smelled of fresh marijuana, but the room wasn’t smelly, was okay. Refrigerator worked more like a cooler and the tv was broken however, if you’re just trying to find a place to crash when you have an all day park it’s fine. Parking is simple and the a/c was nice and cold which is what matters. The beds were alright but decent for a budget hotel Read less

The staff is the best part of this property. Patient, friendly and great attitudes at all times. Breakfast buffet was great. Rooms were clean and could use some tlc (paint/updating). Right across the street from Old Town Kissimmee, good place to hang out-very chill and also has rides and Flippers pizza-amazing!
