Taxi to the hotel cost $60 (incl tip & toll). Thought I wouldn't need a hire car (but you do) as the hotel advertises shuttles to the theme parks and alot of reviews on here highlight the location. But these shuttles only leave once per day (between 8-10) and return once (5 ish). Plus there is no shuttle to Seaworld. Also the public transport in Orlando is awful.
Arriving at the hotel for 10 days I was disappointed to see the hotel is right next to a MOTORWAY. The reviews on here say highway. But this is a 4 lane motorway with cars & trucks doing 70 mph. I had to be moved the next day to a room facing away from the motorway to help with the noise.
The Hotel itself is a good 3 & a half star. The rooms are spacious with really comfy beds. The hotel staff are really nice and the maid service is very good. The TV was good with lots of channels and the business centre was free with scanning and printing services. Also its right next to a place called the Crossroads which is full of really good restaurants like buffalo wild wings, Uno, red lobster, steak & seafood, TGI's around 9 or 10 altogether.
Downsides were the lifts & air con were noisy, the restaurant was average and the bar was not very inviting. There is a small fitness centre and we did not try the pool.
To summarise if you can get it cheap as we did ($75 a night), dont mind a bit of noise and would like something very close to some great restaurants then this is ideal.
