Stayed here twice during our tour of Florida. Hotel is in a great location for Universal being only a 5 minute drive. We stayed in one of their "pure" rooms as I suffer from dust allergies than can make me feel like I've caught a cold but I had no problems here. I had no problem getting a good nights sleep once I got used to the air conditioner kicking in ( like a 747 taking off)!
Wasn't given a code for the wifi ( being an IHG Platinum member wifi is free) but when I queried it I was told to log in and charge it to the room but the charge wouldn't appear on my bill ( which it didn't), however this was on my third day so should have been explained at check in.
As per other reviews the rooms are in need of refurbishing but they were clean and comfortable.
Also as a Platinum member we should have been given access to the Executive Lounge but as we had a busy schedule I didn't bother querying the front desk.
Overall I would recommend this hotel for a stay in Orlando but like some other Platinum reviewers, the staff should recognise our Brand Loyalty a bit more.
