Arrived on the 29th April for a 2 week stay. Room for 2 people consisted of 2 x large double beds, sink area and separate toilet and bath/shower. There is a fridge in the room, a safe, an iron, a desk and chair but no microwave and TV has many channels but no DVD player.
Best location on international drive by far! Short 3-10 minute walk from so many places including: TGI, Hooters, Tony Romas, Olive Garden, Dominos, Subway, Indian restaurants and loads more! 5-10 min walk from Pointe Orlando which is an area with restaurants, bars, ice bar, wonderworks, cinema (including IMAX) and shops such as Tommy Hillfoger, Hollister and Victoria Secret.
Hotel has a shuttle service to universal and disney. However we quite often got a taxi to Universal which is roughly 14-16 dollars including a tip :)
The hotel service was good and even though there was building work going on we didn't experience problem with sleeping due to noise. Swimming pool area was nice with bar and snack/cafe shop and is open until late (11). The maid service is standard and there is a disclaimer to say they do not change sheets and they sweep not wash the floor, which is fine, but the coffee wasn't always replaced daily and sometimes the towels weren't. But not a complaint just a note :)
Reception staff helpful and have allowed us a late check out tomorrow for no charge which is very nice.
Would definitely return here for service, value and location!
