Solid getaway spot

This hotel was definitely nice and had a solid vacation. Very easy to get too and from the airport and we loved having a mall to go shopping and kill sometime at without having to get a taxi. The staff was very nice and was more than accommodating. I'd highly recommend this hotel to a friend

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Having the mall attached is awesome. Sometimes it's nice to get out of the hotel but not have to drive or get a taxi. The mall made that possible.

Great honeymoon spot

We had a very nice time at this hotel. The location from all the theme parks is fantastic. Makes it even better being attached to the mall. Lots of options for food, shopping, and entertainment. The in-house bar is fantastic with great prices, friendly staff, and good food and drinks. I would stay here again 10 times over.

Good Conference Venue

I went to the hotel for a conference and stayed for 2 nights. The room was comfortable and clean. The location of the sessions worked out great because all of the choices were on the same floor of the hotel. That made it easy to be on time for everything. There were also many choices for meals.

New Year's getaway

The hotel is connected to The Florida Mall in Orlando, and 15 minutes from Orlando International Airport. If you like to walk at the mall this is the perfect hotel to stay.

Undisclosed $15.00 charge PER DAY!!

While signing in, I was asked to initial that there was a $15.00 PER DAY charge above the room rate for a bottle of water, internet and workout facility. They said that I was told this when I made my reservation. I was not. Then I was told that it should have been sent to me in an e-mail. It was not. I got on-line and found another hotel. Be careful that the published rate does not include the $15.00 per day charge.

Family getaway.

This hotel was very accomodating, our flight arrived about 4 hours before the check in time. I called to see if it was possible to do an early check in. The front desk was pleasant and did not have a problem with that. My family and I was able to check in shower and visit some friends. It was a great experience. Room service was prompt and pleasant with our orders. I will definitely return to this hotel. My 12 year old was impressed. I told my adult son he has to visit this hotel.
