A friend and I stayed at the Hawthorn Suites Lake Buena Vista, Orlando from 23 February through 2 March. What a wonderful find! The suite was immaculate and consisted of a bedroom, living room area, galley kitchen with full refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and two counter burners, and bathroom with tub and toilet separated from the sink area. There were two TVs (no one has to fight over what shows to watch), coffee maker, hair dryer, plates and utensils...everything you need. The staff were incredibly helpful and courteous. A buffet breakfast was available every morning from 7:00 - 9:30 am with hot and cold items. We never got to the pool or the exercise room, but it was there if you wanted it. The laundry room was clean and tidy. The hotel was very convenient to Disney Parks (about 10 minutes away), Universal Parks (15 minutes away) , a HUGE outlet mall (5 minutes) and was within walking distance of many restaurants and several large grocery stores. The price was EXCELLENT and was initially how I found it on the internet. However, the absolute BEST part of staying there was Mary, our housekeeper. Everyday, she made a towel animal for us and incorporated various objects we left in the room - tiaras, stuffed animals, etc. into them! One day it was a Swan; then a Teddy bear, Micky's head, and a sea turtle! We raced into the room after visiting the parks to see what Mary had made for us! We really got a kick out of them! I will DEFINITELY stay there again the next time I am in Orlando!

My husband and I stayed at the Hawthorn Suites Feb 15 - 29. We had previously stayed at the one near International Drive but this one was better all round. It was more relaxing and the breakfast area was more spacious. Our room was exactly the same, we had a suite with 2 queens in the bedroom and a sofa bed in the lounge area. Kitchen had a coffee machine, microwave, 2 hotplates, large fridge (complete with ice maker) and a dishwasher. Maid service was excellent, she even used to load and turn on the dishwasher. In fact all the staff we came in to contact with were excellent. Breakfast was good, we never had a problem with getting a table or with food running out as we had with the other one. Swimming pool was small but adequate with towels supplied, there was also a jacuzzi and a basketball hoop. There was also a barbeque which we saw one family use. Location was ideal, only 10 - 15 min to both Disney parks and Universal. There were some shops and restaurants within walking distance. We would certainly choose to stay here again.

Room Tip: A room on the pool side would be quieter.

This our third stay with the Hawtorn Suites twice in this particular one at LBV and would use again. The hotel is close to Disney , Universal Studios , Wet n Wild, Seaworld etc. The Staff are welcoming and very efficient just cannot fault the place at all. We used the pool and jaccuzzi. Great breakfast which gave us a start to our day and met our taste. We did attend the Managers evening with wine , beer and hotdogs which was very nice. Free safe to put all your valuables in. Plenty of space to park. Will be returning again in the future.I do prefer the location of this one as have stay at the other Hawthorn suite just off International Drive and didnt like it International Drive reminds me of the seafront in Blackpool and is constantly jammed with traffic dont waste your holiday sat in traffic stay in this one at LBV better location all round and even close to WalMart.

The hotel was clean and well maintained with housekeeping each day. We appreciated the extra room of a suite. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. The daily breakfast met our needs and we also enjoyed the manager's reception during the week. Our family used the pool each day during our trip. It was never overcrowded, and we had the opportunity to meet several other families. The hotel was in an excellent location to access Downtown Disney, Seaworld and the major highways for other sightseeing. I am rating this hotel as excellent given the comparison to what we got for the price as we have stayed at a moderate hotel on Disney property in the past. This hotel acutally exceeded our experience on Disney property two years ago. We definitely will visit again.

We stayed in this hotel for one week for a trip to Disneyworld and SeaWorld and we loved the hotel. The location is really good and if you don't have a car you can use the free shuttles from the hotel, they bring you to all the Disney theme parks ( it takes around 30 minutes because the shuttle stops in other hotels to carry more people ) and to Sea World ( that was better because the shuttle was just for us and we reached SeaWorld in about ten minutes without other stops), anyway for us the shuttle were free because we booked through Virgin Holidays but if your agency does not have the free shuttles included you can still use them and pay about 10 dollars per person for a round trip. The staff is nice but nothing special. The room is great, it is a suite so it has all the comforts of home and you can actually cook there so you can save on meals, there is no restaurant on site but you can order food from other restaurants ( we did not do it ) or you can have a walk to some local restaurants, but we did not do it either. There is also a supermarket close to the hotel and some shops that sell Disney merch and other stuff at lowest prices than inside the theme parks. The free breakfast is okay if you are American or British, but we are from Italy and we did not like the items they served so after a couple of mornings we stopped doing breakfast there, anyway they serve coffee, milk, cereals, fruits, and some cooked food. There is a parking outside but we did not have a car so we do not know if it is free or not. The hotel is quiet and you don't hear noises from the cars even if it is quite close to the street, the cleaness is okay, you can buy tickets to some of the major attractions including Disney directly in the hotel. The area is safe and the rooms are quite too, we rarely heard noises from other guests. Overall we liked our stay there, it was also pretty cheap for its location and its quality and we recommend it to people, both families and not, that want to enjoy a Disney holiday in a safe and nice hotel close to all the major theme parks.
ps= they also offer a shuttle to Universal and Universal Islands of Adventures that was quite a long trip, almost a hour, because the shuttle drivers stopped to several other hotels to pick up more people so if you want to reach the parks faster you will need to book a private shuttle or a taxi; for all the theme park's shuttle they don't have much choices regarding the time tables, the one that is better connected is DisneyWorld but for instance they drop you off at Epcot and you need to use the monorail too to go to Magic Kingdom or the free Disney bus to Animal Kingdom. For Seaworld and Universal Studios ( both Universal parks) they don't have a night shuttle and can be a pity for Universal if you want to enjoy the CityWalk at night, then you have to book a taxi or a private shuttle to come back at your hotel.
