“Very convenient hotel”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Just got back from this decent hotel in Orlando, I have got to say it was a lot better than I was expecting having read the recent reviews, the first room we got given was in A block, room ok apart from the air condition unit was leaking, went straight back to tell them and they quickly changed are room to the fifth floor in D block, much nicer room with modern tv, big fridge and 2 double beds. The only neg I had with the room is that the air con and the fridge made a lot of noise in the night but you do get use to it, towels changed every day and room cleaned most days. Nice heated pool that opened at 7am till 11.30 pm, also they had live alligators just behind the pool, they were in there own pen so nothing to worry about. Pool bar was gud, lounge bar opened at 5.30, which had large screen tv's and the food there was excellent, we ate there several times and very reasonable as well. The hotel provide free transportation to Disney and sea world, but be warned you have to book in advance or you will have to pay $15 each on another shuttle or take a taxi to Disney for $50. We found the hotel to be a perfect location, wet n wild just up the drive and loads of eating places near buy. There is a shop in the hotel but over the road is cheaper by about a $ for most things. Over all we had a great time at the hotel and would defo return, all the staff are very polite and will help you with anything, look forward to going back soon.

This is the 2nd time that we have stayed at the International Palms Hotel. The 1st time we stayed in the tower, but this time we were nearer the hotel itself. The staff especially Javier and Jordan the barman, couldn't do enough for us, which we really apprieciated. Going back in September to the same hotel so that must tell it's own story.

An older hotel, BUT.....I have to say the service was wonderful...from the guest services reps to the barkeep in the pool area as well as housekeeping staff. These folks made our stay wonderful.
Thank you to Hector, Glen, Patrick, Johnny, Mike and Sanya....The pool area was perfect if you did not want to leave the hotel, hot tub and cool pool. They had great breakfasts at the hotel and it was good food. The beds were nice and firm, with good array of pillows. The room was clean. The folks that work here made our stay fun and relaxing. Thanks to all those named above will be back next time we have to be in Orlando.

Room Tip: ask to be upgraded to a king sized bed. They will accommodate if available. Many thanks for the se...

Believe me, I did all my research and had stayed at a few competing hotels prior to our family stay here. By far this property is the best value and vacation experience that we had in the Orlando area! Everything from the staff, the location, room size and cleanliness and the proximity to major attractions will make this our new "go to" hotel when visiting next time. The kids loved the spacious pool deck and they even have an alligator exhibit right there! The food was great and we also enjoyed the Tiki bar poolside. In short, everything we needed was right there. When you can please both the older and younger kids at the same time it' a no brainer! Thanks International Palms for a terrific stay! See you in August when we come back!

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly for the best rate.

So I have an annual pass to Universal/Islands of Adventure and I have chosen to stay at The International Palms Resort 3 times now. Why you ask . . . . BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME! It's clean, super convenient to the park and the staff is way cool! I love that I can walk out the door and be in a theme park like setting at the pool deck, which has an alligator exhibit (what!?), killer cocktails, a big hot tub and yummy food. I never leave the property once we get back from the parks because they have it all there. The rooms are spacious, our room had this unbelievable view, and all the little things you are looking for when you're at a hotel are right at your fingertips. I applaud this hotel - they went to great lengths to make our stay excellent and I doubt I would ever stay anywhere else in that area! Three thumbs up!!! ; ))

Room Tip: The higher floors in the tower have an amazing view and the atrium at the bottom is a great escape t...

We recently stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We got a room on the top floor of the hotel "tower" floor 13.
Positives:The staff was friendly and everything was clean.
The negatives: Furniture needed updating, small corner window, lots of things looked old and broken in the building such as the elevator buttons and signs. The food from the restaurant was very overpriced ($12 for 2 hot dogs and a drink)
A side note, we were awoken at 9am for a fire alarm. Apparently it was a false alarm. The staff handled it well.
Overall not a bad stay if you dont have to pay too much.

Room Tip: Dont get placed in the tower if you have a fear of heights. The walkways 10+ stories up are only as...
