As a former resident of Orlando for 25 years, I am aware that the hotels in the attraction areas are generally filled to the brim with the ubiquitous tourists. I attended a convention nearby, but chose to not stay at the host hotel. Since I had a satisfactory stay at this same property a month ago, I decided to stay again. The front desk staff is courteous, friendly and efficient. Both times, I received an upgrade to a suite, which helped with the noise of children (and partying adults) playing and talking loudly in the hallway (and as a business traveler of many years, I always find myself wondering if these casual travelers slam their doors at home, too!). I opted this time to order room service from the adjoining restaurant (TGI Fridays) and received my meal very quickly. It was very good. Upon checkout, I met Ms. Brenda Liz, who was just delightful, as was the gentleman who checked me in! I have never encountered anything but good old fashioned hospitality at this h. I won't hotel. I won't hesitate to stay again in the future!
