Excellent weekend stay

Pros: We liked our large corner room, the lobby area with the bar, restaurant and deli shop, the location and the super helpful staff.
Cons: WIFI could be stronger and more reliable. A refrigerator in the room would have been nice.
Location: The location was perfect for us. We found a very good Japanese restaurant and many others within walking distance from the hotel.
We had a great visit with the purpose of celebrating my nephew's college graduation. The hotel and the staff were excellent. We also appreciated very much having the courtesy shuttle available to do some shopping in the area. All the staff members were extremely helpful and very friendly.

Three day stay

Pros: Friendly staff, location
Cons: Put a nightlight in the room so we don't Ave to leave the bathroom light on.
Location: Unknown. Had family living nearby and that took up our time.
No,problems other than over priced breakfast buffet. Staff was unusually high spirited and helpful. Parking is pricey ..either valet or self park. Our three day stay was good in spite of the fact that our room did not get cleaned on the middle day. No explanation except that housekeeping must have forgot!

A nice hotel near downtown Orlando

Pros: The location and convenience for getting on and off I-4.
Cons: Put refrigerators in the rooms.
Location: We were in town to deliver our granddaughter to start college at Rollins. The hotel is relatively convenient for that.
.We were able to check in quickly. The room was on the ninth floor with an excellent view of downtown Orlando. The room was clean. There was no refrigerator in the room. The TV was large and clear but changing stations with the remote was somewhat clumsy.The temperature was set at 60 degrees. It took some working the thermometer to get the temperature up to 70 degrees. Basically, this hotel struck us a catering to business clientele in town for business events.

Pros: I loved the Hilton Honors reception each evening.
Cons: Displeased with breakfast costs - Fruit loops, muffin, coffee, and a juice cost $18.00. EXCESSIVE!
Location: Easy to find free street parking after 5:00, so you don't have to pay their outrageous parking lot fees.
We stayed here while work was getting done on our house. I've stayed here before and I'll stay here again if the need arises.

This is a 1 star hotel at best!

Pros: The location was close to downtown.
Cons: The area had beer cans and trash throughout the lobby.
This hotel would sell your paid rooms then leave you in the lobby for hours. While they call around then tell you to pay for new rooms while they figure out the error in the system.

I can't believe you have to pay to park in their garage. If I am a guest, I should have complimentary parking. The hallways smelled of sewer. Bathroom had noticable mildew.

Average or above property with a couple of notable shortcomings

Service at the hotel restaurant was friendly but about the slowest I have experienced anywhere in recent years. While the room was okay, there was no hot water in the shower the last morning of my stay. Really disappointing & irritating.
