Lets talk about the pool...

Pros: Bed was comfy
Cons: Pool size and heat it a little maybe a Jacuzzi too
Location: Hibachi and the outlet perfect
Everything was perfect except the tiny freezing pool, yes the pool was very important to me. Otherwise location was perfect for food and shopping.

Good Location - Disappointing Interior and Staff

Pros: Location - Room Size
Cons: Front Desk Staff - need to be friendly and greet you. Most of the time we only got a hello because we said it first.
Location: Close to Disney and Universal and lots of places to eat and International Drive.
Hotel was in an excellent location but the rest was just disappointing. The hotel was under renovation - the entire floor above us was currently being renovated and it appeared that the lobby had been half way renovated. Needless to say - there was noise during the day - thankfully we were gone for the majority of the time the noise occurred - so the hotel at least got that right. No where were we prepared for staying at hotel undergoing renovation. I wouldn't even have considered staying here. The lobby area outside the elevators and the elevators had drywall dust and the smell of sawed lumber was very pervasive throughout the hotel - not a good thing when you are allergic to both things. Our room was dated and very disappointing to say the least. The tub did not drain well. The plus to the room - the size - liked the large bath and separate sitting area with an additional tv with fridge and micro. Should also mention that the vent fan didn't work in the bath and we had issues with finding an acceptable temp for the outdated ac units that seemed to work ok at best. The breakfast was marginal - had better at less expensive hotels. For the brand name - I expected much much better. And the staff - honestly this was one of the most disappointing aspects of our stay - the remodel crew and cleaning crew were friendlier than the frost desk crews. And the remodel crews were the friendliest of all - great people - and they don't work for the hotel!

Pros: The comfortable bed
Cons: The breakfast buffet should have the coffee bar in there, instead of the guest having to walk to the reception area to get coffee.
Very nice hotel. Travelling for business purposes. Big room with king bed and a separate kitchenette and leaving room area. Very comfortable bed and pillows, bathroom is ample and clean, very well lit parking area unlike some other hotels, and a good breakfast buffet.

Nice hotel close to Universal Studios.

Pros: Liked the convenience to Universal.
Cons: The breakfast was not very appetizing.
Location: Close to many attractions for adults and families with great shopping.
Although the hotel was under some major renovations it did not interfere with a pleasant stay. It was very convenient to Universal, shopping and food.

Mediocre hotel

Pros: Room size was good.
Room was decent size and appeared clean when we first arrived. Later we pulled down the bedspread and found that the sheets and pillow cases had not been changed. The sheets were dirty and wrinkled from the previous guests and there were stains on two of the pillows. I called the front desk and they sent up two people who changed the bedding and apologized. Makes me wonder how many other rooms in the hotel also had "used" sheets on the beds.

Very nice place close to Universal

Pros: Close to Universal, clean, nice, breakfast, comfortable beds, quiet.
Cons: As nothing is really needed, I would like a better pool area (though it is not necessary).
Location: Universal Studios 1 mile, restaurants less than 1 mile (some in same parking lot), I-drive just over a mile.
As I read other comments concerning breakfast, I don't understand why people expect breakfast. Usually a nicer hotel does not have a free breakfast. This one does. Is it the best? No. Is it better than most? Yes. Hot foods, cold foods, many juices, decent coffee, among other things put this way above the average. Now to get past those who think I good hotel has a free breakfast (you need to stay in a nice hotel once in a while as the lower grade the hotel, the better chance for breakfast). The beds were nice and comfortable. The room was spacious. (If you want a bigger bathroom as this one was basically the same as all others, stay at home.) It came with a microwave and a fridge which is usually left for cheaper hotels. This hotel is a solid 3-star hotel or more with amenities one would expect from a cheaper, trying to please you because their hotel sucks, hotel. This place is nice, clean, close to Universal, near restaurants, accommodating, and more than one should expect. I see people complaining about it but they are wrong. Either they expect a 5-star hotel to act like a 1-star and give breakfast, no resort fees, and no parking fee or they have never actually been in a 5-star which has no breakfast, has resort fees, and charges for parking. This hotel is a 3 to 3 1/2 with much more added but no useless fees and a decent breakfast. I will stay there again.
