We had an amazing time. Hotel centrally located in the heart of all the activities we wanted. ( universal studios, International drive and Wald Disney World. Needed more variety in the cafeteria. Friendly and knowledgeable staff . Early check out but we had the use of the facilities our bags were ...
The hotel is brand new and the rooms that we stayed in were beautiful… two bedrooms with a living room and kitchen that were lovely. I would ask Orbitz to specify that, besides the $20 resort fee, there is a $20 self parking fee. It’s in the garage connected to the building where you are staying ...
For the price i cant complain much. We reserved a 2 bed and 1 sofa room. Arrived to 2 beds. Not very comfy. Location is perfect, right in the middle of so many restaurants and things to do. I felt safe. Hotel staff helpful and very friendly. I would stay at this hotel again. Pool is nice, lots if ...
Everything was good, nice service!!... the elevator didn’t work good, and I thought the breakfast was included but actually it was a buffet for 10$ each person...very clean and confortable...
Great hotel close to everything and universal studios is literally steps away. Staff is very kind and helpful in assisting or answering any questions you may have. Would definitely stay here again
They hotel was nice and clean and our room was nice also . The only downside was that the made us pay for breakfast so bad to go out for that as it was to expensive there. Had to pay for parking every time we went out two days until I asked about parking then they gave me a pass. Other than that ...
Great pools and breakfast at the Gatorville cafe. "Happy hour" price on draft beer is the same as it is during non happy hour times. Beware of the upgrades. When booking through Orbitz the room says it has a garden view and comes with a pull out couch. When you check in you find out the room has ...
My arrival to the hotel was going to be way past my check-in time. I called and they made the reservation desk aware of my late arrival. They even upgraded my room.
Stayed here because we got to Orlando a day early and our Disney resort didn’t have a room. Next time we go we will be staying here the whole time instead! Bigger rooms and free breakfast!
I absolutely LOVED my stay at the point. I surprised my boyfriend with a week get away to Orlando and This no doubt about it was the best choice we made about our stay. Room service was ON POINT! the bar at the pool was fun and the bar tender is so friendly she could easily fool you into thinking you've known her for years. The customer service Rep who checked us in WAS PHENOMENAL. I forgot her name but she was the African Amercian woman with really short hair and glasses. I swear i REALLLYYY enjoyed my stay and WILL be staying again with my entire family next time.
This is an excellent resort hotel, but a little isolated if you dont have a car. The outside area is beautiful and the lake and the walk around it is a nice touch. The nearby hotels are nice if you want to go there and use their facilities. There could have been more (or different) restaurant options on site with higher quality food. The hotel needs to be more strict about people literally taking up sunchairs at the pools all day without hardly using them. It was very hard to find a spot to lay down at the pool and enjoy the nice FL weather. All in all we would give it a 4.5 out of 5.
The beating heart of Florida, Orlando attracts visitors from all corners of the world and is only a few hours' drive from the state's other major cities including Tampa, Jacksonville, Miami and Naples. Home to more than a dozen spectacular amusement parks and hundreds of smaller attractions, it also boasts upscale shopping and delicious dining. A combination of world-class resorts and affordable accommodations has helped establish Orlando as a magnet for families in search of a good-time vacation.
Ask anyone what their favorite things about Orlando are and they’ll likely point out its two major draws: Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. Beyond these theme park giants, Orlando actually has a whole host of individual amusement parks for guests of all ages, especially adults with the hearts of big kids.
What started out as a single amusement park in 1971 proved so popular, it grew into four: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. Your favorite movie characters, both old and new, wander around the parks, so be sure to get a picture with the likes of Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.
Riding some of the world's most famous roller coasters can be tiring, so after a long day of seeking thrills, head to Downtown Disney to eat at Fulton's Crab House and catch a movie at the 24-screen AMC theater. Don't forget to stop in The Lego Store, the single largest shop dedicated to anything and everything Lego.
Both Walt Disney World and Universal Studios are appropriate for families and kids of all ages, but if Walt Disney World is better suited for younger children, Universal Studios might appeal more to young adults. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter stirred much excitement in 2010, and now you can even take a walk down Diagon Alley.
Just outside Universal Studios and Islands of Adventures sits CityWalk, which offers visitors movie-themed shopping and dining opportunities such as Bubba Gump Shrimp.
If it’s been your lifelong dream to swim with dolphins, make it come true at SeaWorld's Discovery Cove. You'll also be able to interact with a huge variety of other animals including whales, exotic birds and fish. Think of SeaWorld as the world's best petting zoo.
Of course, your stay wouldn't be complete without going on SeaWorld's water slides and roller coasters. With a unique blend of entertainment and education, families can spend a whole day here and never get bored.
Legoland is a must for Lego collectors of all ages. The park is decorated with custom sculptures, and guests can experiment with millions of different Lego bricks at the Lego Factory. A large botanical garden takes advantage of Orlando's tropical climate.
Each amusement park offers themed accommodations in Florida, but there are plenty more Orlando hotels to suit every budget and taste. The Holiday Inn Express & Suites offers low rates for spacious and comfortable lodgings, with a free shuttle bus taking you to nearby attractions. For a luxurious stay, the JW Marriot Orlando Grand Lakes treats you to an on-site golf course and eleven restaurants.
Thanks to its tropical climate, Orlando is home to exotic plants and wildlife not found anywhere else. Bromeliads, palm trees and bougainvillea vines keep the city colorful throughout the year, and mild winters allow the amusement parks to remain open during all seasons.
Millions of families flock to Orlando during the summer, and a significant number head to the city around Christmas. If you want to beat the lines at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, plan your vacation from September to November, or from February to April, when the weather is mild.
