Unfortunately the poor internet and poor shuttle schedule over shadowed a nice hotel.

Excellent location on I-Drive. Close to restaurants. Many decent bargain shops in the area. Front desk Staff was attentive and caring. Maintenance was unbelievably quick on our request for help with the safe (1min.). Morning breakfast staff worked very hard to supply a lot of people and keep area clean. Shuttle to Universal was excellent. Shuttle to Disney would have been great, it just returned too early (6 pm) if you want to stay and see fireworks. We took City Bus, only $2 with 1 transfer at Seaworld. Leaving hotel it's Bus #8 to Seaworld & Bus #50 to Disney. Returning it's opposite. Quite simple.
Walked to Wet n' Wild (5mins).
Pool area was okay, near freeway so a little noisy. Peaceful once you put on your head phones!
1) We had room at front of hotel,very quiet, a/c worked very well. Rooms 234 & 236 right next to stairs. Very convenient, Never took elevator once.
2) Our shuttle driver Sergio was beyond excellent. He did our return trip from Universal as well as our restaurant trips at night and brought us to the airport on departure day! He really catered to us and made sure we were not over-charged. Really nice Fella. Always ask the front desk for Sergio.
Mary (the manager) was excellent to us. A good property and Excellent Staff! They make this IHG Gold member happy!
Thank you Mary, you have a great team!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Club391 Friendly Staff! Great Value!
Friendliest staff. Everyone was very polite and welcoming. It's refreshing to receive great service from the entire staff.
Beds were clean and comfortable. Bathrooms were clean. Good options for breakfast.
The A/C unit blows nearly straight out (powerful right in your face). Some things were a bit dated (dingey). Exercise room (closet) needed some updates/maintenance.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sarahbeth6 Comfortable and great front desk, housekeeping was so-so
The front desk staff was amazing. The housekeeping was not great, they never re-stocked coffee, I lost both of my tv remotes and later found them both under the curtain in my room. The housekeeping must have changed the bed without taking care to move the tv remotes. Never re-stocked the washcloths either.
Everything else was great. Good location, nice room, the fitness equipment needs maintenance though.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Skotty1234 Distracted Drivers / Partial Breakfast
If you choose to have breakfast, don't expect biscuits and gravy at this location.....they don't serve it. Also if you use the shuttle to the convention center, buckle up and expect the drivers to be texting / emailing / using the phone the entire trip. Distracted driving is not prohibited for or is ignored by vehicle operators. Also use caution in the excellent (but slick) showers. Overall good experience and excellent accommodations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by h.hair18 Excellent hotel for the price and location
The hotel is newer, clean and friendly staff. Great location to stay. for convention center. There are plenty of restaurants, etc walking distance to hotel. The trolley and bus system stops right out front.
The rooms were updated and clean.
The complimentary breakfast was perfect to start the day. Plenty of choices and a nice great room to eat in.
I would stay here again and recommend it for anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sudarsan comfortablebed, great location, good service and courteous staff
The location is excellent with close proximity to places of interest. The hotel's free shuttle service is very useful. But evening pick up could be extended and an additional pick up at later timing may be considered.
Conveniently located with number of restaurants nearby of varied choice of food.
Rooms are well kept, clean and neat . Linen and towels are clean and overall room looks neat and refreshing.
Food choice in the free breakfast is decent though choice for vegetarians is limited.
Front desk staff are very friendly and ready to assist and respond to queries.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GregM Great Hotel! Quick resolution of problems.
I travel frequently - 150+ nights a year. Have been a IHG Platinum for almost 20 years - have comparable status at a ciompetitor as well. Additionally, I have stayed at this property perhaps 25 nights in the past year.
With all that said, I understand issues happen. I don't judge a hotel for having an issue, instead I judge by how they handled an issue.
My reviews for this property have consistently beend 5/5 or near 5/5.
It is always clean and it is always quiet!. Both of these are hard to accomplish in a tourist location.
If you stay at a hotel often enought - you have an issue. Mine was with housekeeping - 930 in the morning they knocked on the door - even though I had a do not disturb sign on the door. Brought it immediatly (and quite vocally# to the manager's attention.. Mary took immedate #and satisfactory) action.
The question is always - "would you retunr to this property after having problems) Answer is yes - I have actuallyc hecked back in to this property this week.
Managemnt team and staff at this hotel care about their guests.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Danielle15 Nice place to stay
We stayed at this hotel in November 2013 and six months later we were sure that it was the right place to stay again. Although the hotel is located on a crowded area, it stays away form all the fuss, due to its large parking lot. The rooms are spaceous and very comfortable , with a microwave oven and a small refrigerator . Breakfast is nice and the staff is very friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel to other people.

I've had the satisfaction of staying at your hotel 3 times in the last 2 months, As long as your hotel keeps up with the magnificent standards you have laid for ALL your staff, I will never consider staying at any other location whenever I visit Orlando. Keep up the good work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FrankJK Good experience, in the heart of everything
This hotel is an excellent location for either business at the convention center or access to any of the Orlando attractions.
Only 20 minutes from the airport and in a locations that offers many restaurants.
Please stay here if you can.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff-Kentucky Run out of hot water in the mornings.
This site seems to have problems with the hot water. I had to get up at 5:00 am to get a hot shower. If I got up any time after 6:30 am the water was only moderately warm. I reported this three times to the front desk staff but they did not get the problem fixed. If you like hot showers I don't think I would recommend staying at this property.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff in NC Clean room and property, but terrible WIFI for business traveler
Booked 2 rooms online for a good price to be near the convention center.
It is a good location for being near the convention center, and as well being on International drive so you can walk to many different restaurants in the evening. It is also a very clean facility (guest room, work out room, breakfast room were all very clean). If you are traveling with a small family and do not care much about wifi capabilities this would be a great place to park for a few days.
From the perspective of a business traveler, it was not worth the savings due to terrible wifi service. It would connect,...then crash 5 minutes later, then reconnect, and be IMPOSSIBLY slow. We called the help line (as that is the only option offered at this HIE,..) and over the course of 4 or 5 calls and about 2 hours of troubleshooting,...nothing,..same problem. Not to say the helpline folks were not courteous, they were certainly willing to help,..but the end result was the same. They called the hotel a few times and had them reboot routers---would help for a few minutes but then back to the same.
Asked other guests at breakfast, and they too had terrible wifi on their floors.
Upon checkout the desk was quite busy, and a conversation soon struck up. Guests (most in town for the same convention) from many floors complained of the same wifi trouble. The lady behind the counter was friendly, but you could tell she had been barraged with the same wifi complaint so often that she was numb to it and unable to offer any sort of apology or promise that it was being resolved.
Only managed to get 10% of my laptop work finished over two days, (eventually went to a coffee shop with wifi down the road) so would advise business travelers to avoid if WIFI is as critical an aspect as it is to me.
Pity, because the all other aspects of the hotel were nice!

However - tea/coffee ingredients were not replenished when the room was serviced on two occasions. Supplies were furnished immediately by Front Desk when asked.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ray25 Good Location and good breakfast selection
The hotel is in a great location and the breakfast selection is above average. However, do not leave any valuables in the room when you check out. The cleaning staff do not believe in Lost and Found. If you leave it, then it is lost. Hotel policy is to hold on to lost and found items for 90 days. I Returned same day to retrieve clothing left in the room and no one knew anything about them or their whereabouts. This is despite the fact that no one checked into the room between the time I left and my return later the same day.

Stayed here for 5 nights in Feb and really enjoyed it. Have stayed in a different hotel on International drive 2 years ago and the Holiday Inn was so much better in every way. Rooms are very comfortable and very well equipped with everything you may need for your stay and the morning breakfast is a nice touch also. Staff were very helpful on check in. We wont even consider a different hotel should we return to Orlando.
