Excellent stay, very nice hotel

We stayed in a Junior Executive Suite (2 x Queen beds, view over the pool), which is right at the top of the hotel. There is a lounge with free buffet breakfast, free WIFI (it costs elsewhere in the hotel, except the lobby - which is a shame - I personally believe all hotels should offer all guests free WIFI) and free snacks and free beer/soft drinks in the evening on 5 nights which is just the ticket when you get back to the hotel. They don't do this on Friday or Saturday nights. The lounge is only accessible to those staying on the top floor though. Rooms were very clean, hotel was very quiet everywhere, there are four lifts (all worked), there's a private pool outside and a gym which stay open 'til quite late. Inside there's a shop, bar and a restaurant. A light meal for a family of four in the bar will knock you back around $80. We didn't try the restaurant. On the road outside there is an I-Ride trolley bus stop, which goes to Seaworld, and on the parallel street (International Drive, about 10 mins walk away) is another I-Ride route which has a wider range of destinations, plus that's where most of the Lynx buses stop. It's also got a plethora of bars, grills, restaurants, shops, whatever you need, you'll find it. All the buses are $2 per trip. We took a day at Florida Mall via the Lynx bus #42. If you're going to Universal there's a free shuttle from outside the hotel - be warned, due to the route it takes (Crowne Plaza is the first stop), it will take about 30 minutes to get to Universal. You can also use this to get to SeaWorld too, by changing at Universal, but to us that seemed a very long-winded way given there's an I-RIDE x bus stop heading straight to SeaWorld less than 10 mins walk away from the hotel. We spent a day at Wet & Wild, but walked there - it's about a 25 minute walk from the hotel. We didn't go to Disney, so no idea how you'd get there - that said, it's a long way away from this hotel. All in all, a very nice stay, lost only 1 mark because WIFI isn't free everywhere.

The best thing about my stay was...

Ease of access to the theme parks, free breakfast and snacks at the hotel.

Hotel is excellent location to all the local attractions. Deff will stay there next year!!
