“Nice hotel - good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2011

Needed 2-day lodging before embarking on Disney Cruise. Chose this hotel because of the good reviews, good location and inexpensive advertised rates. Hotel is approx. halfway between MCO and Universal Studios, our 1st destination. Rate was advertised at $119 per night. After numerous additional taxes, the nightly rate ended up being approx. $165 per night. Not knowing the allowable Florida tax rates surprised us. You will need to request additional pillows and blankets if you intend on using the sofa-sleeper.

I traveled to Florida to go the the Daytona 500. My stay at the hotel was very clean, comfortable and I would recommend this hotel. The food and bar was also excellent.

After staying in other hotels on a business trip, it was a refreshing relief to get to this one. It was very clean. Everything was good. The staff is friendly and helpful. Conveniently located next to great shopping at the mall. Short trip from the airport.

I've been staying at The Florida [Mall] Hotel on a fairly regular basis for the past seven years and I always enjoy my visit.

The hotel is conveniently located just 15-20 minutes from McCoy Airport and next to the expansive Florida Mall - a veritable mecca for shoppers with absolute everything available under one roof (including one of the best in-mall Food Courts you'll find anywhere!)

The hotel itself is regularly renovated - in my seven years there I seem to remember atleast two major renovation projects taking place incluing an almost complete re-model of the reception area which is now spacious and welcoming. The rooms, too, have been renovated and are modern without compromising on comfort and convenience.

Additionally, they rooms here are some of the biggest standard rooms I've ever experienced anywhere in the world..... They're huge.

The hotel has a nice out-door pool, in-house Starbucks and convenience store (handy, but with the mall connected I must admit to seldom using it). The hotel's bar, Cricketts, has an extended happy hour offering 2-for-1 drinks and nibbles (great bar-snack menu available!! I suggest you try the quesadillas).

The staff here are also superb. Very helpful and, one the one occasion I've had a problem, very keen to rectify things.

If I was staying in Orlando for more than a few days, I'd be tempted to stay nearer the parks or towards International Drive; but for a few nights in the city this hotel is an absolute must!

Particularly good if you have a car, with masses of free parking available.

The only strange thing about this hotel would be the location of the gym.... It's just off the lobby and is open-plan, to an extent..... Little strange.

We booked this hotel because it was the #1 rated hotel on trip advisor. We paid a little over $200 a night. Aside from being attached to a nice mall - this hotel is a 2 star hotel. The bathroom amenities were sparse- no lotion, no shower cap or qtips. The towels were old and itchy. The toilet handle was broken and we had to lift the lid and fix it to get the water to fill right. The shower had such low water pressure! There is nothing special about this hotel- it should not be rated # 1, not even top 20. We were very disappointed.

Nice to have the mall attached. Night was quiet - room comfortable and staff friendly.
