Quick trip to Disney

Attending the wedding of a former student was a truly honorable event and I had to be sure to get from Maine to Orlando, rest up for a night and get to the wedding on time. Arriving at the hotel at 1AM, after a harrowing set of delays with the airlines, the front desk young lady was just as helpful as could be. She was ready to check me in and get me settled. Without asking,she knew how tired and frustrated I was. The bellman went out of his way to get my bags off my shoulders and get them set up in my room while I managed to get food from the restaurant just a few feet away from the entry desk. How convenient. The room was very clean, very quiet and most comfortable. The room had a refrigerator and microwave and was pleasant in its decor. The wake up call was right on time and even the room coffee was top notch. This is the place I'll choose on my next trip to Orlando. It's a top choice in my book! Tom

Everything you'll need.

Located in a convenient area with services necessary for vacation travelers. Excellent security, ample everything. Including an Applebys restaurant which are always good and til 2 AM. A major step up from the Holidays of yesteryear.

Great Place To Stay

Great hotel in great location. If a person was going to Orlando for the amusement parks, I don't think there would have been a better place. The entry from I4 is a little tricky until you've done it, but otherwise it is easy to get to. I gave it four stars for location because I ended up spending most of my time in downtown Orlando, and it is a little far from there. The room, staff, and amenities were top shelf. Would definitely stay there again. Could not beat the value.

Good Family Oriented Place

The facility pays a lot of attention to serving the theme park crowd with kids. The pool is dominated by kids and adults take refuge in the jacuzzi. The rooms are large, comfortable and came with a fridge and micro. The only disappointment was the Applebees located in the lobby. Really mediocre food but then, that's Applebees. For choice in food, you really have to drive, not far but you have to drive.

Good location. Great service

I'm in Orlando for the Disney College Program. The hotel staff was very welcoming and patient during my stay at the Holiday Inn. I recommend this place as the 'Official Stay' for incoming Disney College Program participants.
