“Superior hotel on International Drive Orlando”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

Most convenient location in Orlando, so close to parks, airport, with well equiped units. 2bed 2bath unit with full kitchen, free WiFi and numerous tvs. Pool facilities great for small children and games room for those a little older. Convenient poolside cafe and onsite catering facilities. Have been before and will return

Room Tip: Choose a unit in blocks A & B which are beside the main pool area

This has been our second time at the Floridays this year. We did not hesitate to reserve again as we travel with three children and the hotel is very convenient with two bed rooms and two bathrooms as well as a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer. Even a high chair for the dining table as well as a pack´n´play was delivered. Last time we had a room in the very last building so this time I requested a room close to the pool and we got a pool view room in building B which was very conveniently located next to the pool as well as main facilities.

The hotel provides every amenity possible to make your stay comfortable. The accommodations are modern and close to everything. A fantastic Publix supermarket as well as a Wallgreens and the Premium outlet are all within walking distance. Also it is only a 5 minutes drive to Downtown Disney. In the evenings they had life music at the bar by the pool and people were having drinks or coffee and listening to the songs, which was neat.

Probably the only thing that I disliked was the housekeeping as our maid only made the beds but never cleaned anything else.

In general I would highly recommend this resort and I will definitely stay there again on my next Orlando visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the main pool. I found building B to be the perfect location

Great location, in the middle of everything. However, we were in the first building facing the bus stop and pool. So it was very noisy at all hours. The beds were slightly uncomfortable.The rooms are nice and big and for a great price. However the showers don't have anything to hold your items except a small soap dish, and the master bedroom design is a little awkward, and extremely hot, would never cool off. Also, the beds in the extra rooms are twins that can be put together as a king, and the brackets on the bottom stick out in prime toe stubbing position. The food was good, the kids loved the chicken tenders, wanted them every day. This was our second visit and the first time was in a building furthur back. I would recommend asking for a building towards the back, unless you like noise.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in one of the back buildings.

Fear not, Floridays deserves all the 5-star ratings it gets.

It is located smack-dab in between Disney and Universal, about a 15-minute drive from each. The rooms are immaculate, well-appointed, and BIG. A 3-bedroom suite w/a full kitchen and porch cost $135/night (be prepared, they sock you with a $12/day "resort fee" as well as all of those nasty hotel taxes so, the real price ends up being nearly $31/day more than you think it will be.)

The hotel has a nice, big pool with some water-sprinkler things the children like as well as a surprisingly good, poolside cafe. The rooms are seriously luxirious, they have shampoos, soaps, dish sponge, TIDE, and dishwasher soap waiting for you when you get there. The beds are very comfortable and all the appliances work well. My only suggestion would be to ask for extra towels. For some reason, the 6 of us kept having to make due with 4 towels and I never remembered to call and ask for more until people were dripping wet.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the parking lot are quieter. Ask for a building next to the pool, if that's you...

Very nice, spacious condos, in excellent condition, very close to Disney World Resort, and not far from the airport. Walmart is a 10 minute drive South, and there's a Whole Foods market about 15 minutes drive North (other side of I-4). Staff were friendly, it was great having Starbucks coffee on site, and the pool is perfect for the family (our kids are aged four and six). The bar serves Sam Adams and Blue Moon on tap, among others.

Room Tip: The layout of the Floridays resort is a little odd - there are six blocks (A-F), try and get into bl...

We were able to get an affordable three bedroom suite with a full kitchen. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and a lot of space. This was important to us as there were six of us including "kids" ages 20, 16, 14 and 10. The location is central to Disney and Universal along with many of Orlando's restaurants. Go Floridays.

We (2 adults + 2 kids 10 and 12) just came from 10 days (9 nights) in Orlando. The hotel location is not as convenient as the ones inside the theme parks BUT it was way cheaper, and much much better than the Disney ones we have gone previously : the condo is huge with 2 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, ... and very well equiped with even dishwasher, washing and drying machines,... They tell you they only give you a starter kit for the different washers, so we bought the necessary at the store one block from the hotel. But at the end, they provided the replacement each time we used them. The service was supposed to be basic (beds and change towels) but it was absolutely perfect : we are used to stay in hotels from 3 to 5 stars and this one reached the 4/5 star service with no doubt. Don't know if that will be the same in busy season, but we had nothing to complain about here.
I said the location is not as convenient but it's not bad at all : 7 minutes from Seaworld, 20 minutes from Universal (didn't go to Disney but seems the same) with our car : that was probably less than waiting for the bus and the long ride you have from most Disney's hotels to the parks. Only difference, you pay for the parking and it's expensive (15 to 20 usd per park and per day). But it was so flexible... Kids enjoyed the very well maintainded swimming pool (the big, we didn't try the small one).
Restaurants and stores very close (5 minutes walking).
Didn't try the food at hotel but prices shown were very reasonable.

For our next stay in Orlando, we will definitely go back to this resort
