We have stayed here twice, it’s about half way from where we live to Orlando. The rooms are very large

The property is impeccably clean and nicely decorated and the staff was very friendly and helpful. However, it took forever to get hot water to our room on the 6th floor. The first night of our stay we had lukewarm water for our showers, the second night we had freezing water. By the third night the problem was fixed although it still took a ridiculously long time for the water to get hot. We also had a faulty fire alarm go off at 5:30 am the On the third night of our visit. Thankfully it was a false alarm, but startling nonetheless. Good location for attending events at the University.
