Boost your energy levels with a bite at the poolside cafe, where burgers, pizza, salads and wraps are served, then join a game of beach volleyball in the hotel's sandy beach zone.

dont let the price fool you

Had a wonderful stay over the 4th of July weekend.The property is nice and clean,the pool is wonderful, and the rooms were perfect.Judging by the price online we weren't expecting anything great but after the stay we were extremely pleased.All of the staff was extremely friendly as well .Its definitely worth more than they charged.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Don't bother with city walk or any other IDrive attraction.Take the 6 mile ride and go to downtown Orlando.Church street station is a much better option

Will stay again!

Location was great! Great restaurants and shopping all around. Just a few minutes from universal theme park. Hotel room was very clean and air conditioner was super cold :) love the huge pool area!! the staff was very friendly and even surprised my husband with a gift basket of snacks for his birthday!! Liked the shuttle service to universal, however they don't tell you until you are there that it only runs in the morning a few times and then only brings back a few times. The last shuttle leaves a little before lunch to take you, so if you wanted to enjoy the hotel pool before you hit the theme parks you would miss out on the shuttle (we didn't really get to enjoy the pool and bar because of this). Besides that we loved it and will be back again!!

The I Trolley is very helpful for getting around International Drive. A 14 day pass costs just $18 and you can use it as much as you like, and brings you to Universal Studios, Sea World, Aquatica and Wet and Wild. Excellent value.

comfortable stay

The room was beautiful, the only thing i thought they shouldve done was renovate the bathroom also. Other than that the beds were comfortable, the rooms so private, didnt even know i had neighbors.

Convenient Location, Nice Place to Stay

Check in was quick and easy; the front desk staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and a pleasure to deal with. The room itself was clean though it's worth noting that it wasn't carpeted. They have some sort of laminate flooring which, to me, made me feel weird walking around barefoot. The bed was comfortable and the temperature controls worked well. There was a dehumidifier in the bathroom which was set to turn on when the bathroom reached a certain level of temperature/humidity. This happened pretty frequently because just turning the lights on there increased the temperature very quickly. Though it was nice to have that regulated, it turned on a few times in the middle of the night which woke me up. All in all, the hotel met my needs and was convenient to the Convention Center and a plethora of dining and entertainment options.
