“Good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed there for 6 nights with our kid.
The room was very spacious with two king size beds. There are some small things that annoyed us however.
The air in the room was very humid. We had all the tome fight between AC and humidity.
Fridge did not work in the beginning but was fixed after our complain. We have used restaurant in the hotel for breakfast. The buffet has very poor choice of food. We had a room next to the elevator. Hence do the math. It was noisy.

It is 5:32 AM as i'm writing this review. My family checked in at this hotel since Sunday, which means my husband and i haven't had a decent sleep for the past 4 days. I haven't stayed at Radisson before but i know for sure that i will never stay at this hotel chain ever again! The sleep number bed is the most uncomfortable bed i've ever slept on, to top it off the hotel is next to the freeway so there is noise that kept us up plus the AC is loud! The pillows feel hallow and provided no support and it smells old. The bathroom is old and the faucet keeps leaking water. This hotel has seen better days! I hope the owner realize it's time to upgrade the rooms!

Dear ‘Shoafi’:
Hi there and thank you for choosing to stay with us, as well as taking the time to share a review about your personal experience! We are terribly sorry to learn that you did not have a good night’s sleep due to the comfort of your bed. We know a good night’s rest is very important and while the majority of folks love the Sleep Number Beds, they are not ideal for everyone. Often times, we are able to send one of our Specialists to your room to help you identify your ‘perfect’ number, ensuring a wonderful night’s rest. Perhaps, on your next visit, we can assist you in identifying your ‘sleep number’. We do invite you to return anytime, in hopes that we can change your mind about our hotel and the Sleep Number Beds. Your comments regarding the restroom have also been passed along to our Maintenance Team for a swift review and any necessary repair. We appreciate you sharing that with us so that we can remedy any issue, quickly and efficiently! Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us and we hope for another opportunity to exceed your expectations.

Warmest wishes,
The Radisson Hotel Orlando-Lake Buena Vista Team

My husband and I traveled to Orlando for Spring a Break and decided to stay here based on the good reviews. The location is great! It's close to awesome restaurants and near the freeway/Disney/shopping. The rental car office in the hotel was awesome and convenient! We rented a car two days and went to Clearwater Beach for a day trip and Cocoa Beach for a day trip. The room was super clean, maid service was prompt, room service was delicious! We also enjoyed the pool (although it was not heated) and the hot tub! It wasn't overly crowded, either. Great place to stay!

This is a comfortable Hotel with a very friendly staff. They go out of their way to assist you in your needs. The room was large enough for two adults and one child to stay comfortably. We stayed for a week and they kept the room very clean and well supplied. The Hotel is located close to Disney and all other theme parks. The beach is just over one hour away. We felt very comfortable with leaving our room for the day, they provide in room safe for valuable and the parking lot is well lit. Many good eating venues are close as well as the Hotel's restaurant.

Room Tip: Our room faced the interstate and we could not hear any noise.

We visited this hotel in August 2013 on our trip to Orlando.

The hotel is strategically located near most of the theme parks with quite a few eating options around.

The staff was very courteous and on our request had given us an early check-in. The room was decently large and the sleep quality was perfect specially after a tiring day at Universal Studios.

The guy at the counter was very helpful and was able to guide us well.

Would definitely recommend this to fellow travellers.

Room Tip: Try to reach the hotel around 9AM as there are free shuttles going to various theme parks at that ti...

My wife and I stayed here for seven days in March 2014. The hotel itself was fine. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful - the bar staff in particular. Our beds were comfortable with feather pillows even. (I've stayed in 'grander' hotels that had cheap foam filled pillows, which I hate,) Our room had two double beds and a small but well equipped bathroom with an excellent shower. The air conditioning in our room was efficient and quiet, and was easliy adjusted to ensure a comfortable temperature. The room was very clean, as was the hotel throughout.

The outdoor pool is not overlarge, though perfectly adequate, but not heated, and even in the Florida sun it was distinctly cool. I saw more than one person dip their toe in and decide against a swim. The pool area was also very clean and tidy. The hotel provides towels.

We had breakfast and a couple of evening meals in the hotel restaurant and the food was surprisingly good. I say 'surprisingly' because we try to avoid hotel restaurants as they are usually lacking in atmosphere and the food often ranges from poor to indifferent. (I'm thinking of the four star hotel we stayed at in Cyprus last year where the food was pretty dire, (though the pool was heated).

There is a range of restauants adjacent to the hotel and we tried a few of them. We had evening meals in Uno's, TGIF and The Red Lobster, and breakfasted at Perkin's on a couple of occasions. Uno's and TGIF were not great. (I'm being somewhat generous when I say this.) The Red Lobster was better. However, the hotel restaurant was just as good as the RL - though it has to be said it scores low on atmosphere. The staff, however, were very friendly.

Though we would stay at the Lake Buena Vista again, there were a couple of minor irritants,

We wanted to buy tickets for Universal and Sea World through the hotel and Reception directed us to an adjacent desk, which dealt with this. We spoke to an assistant (very welcoming and friendly) for fifteen minutes or so who quoted us substantial discounts and we were on the point of biting his hand off (the parks are not cheap), when he told us that the discounted tickets were ours - providing we attended a 'short presentation lasting about ninety minutes' on some very attractive properties. In other words - time share or some such. We declined - and he declined (politely) to sell us the discounted tickets. I gathered he didn't work for the hotel, he worked for a company that sells time share and the discounted tickets were the carrot to get us to attend the presentation.

We were still able to buy the tickets from the same desk (at full price) from another assistant who wasn't selling time share. If you buy park tickets at the hotel just make sure who you are talking to before wasting your time. Unless of course you are prepared to attend a presentation where you are likely to be subject to some high pressure selling. Incidentally, we have no complaints about the shuttle service to and from the park (Universal).

The hotel does not operate a shuttle service to Sea World, which is well worth a visit, and considerably cheaper than Universal. We had to get there by taxi and asked the hotel to order us a taxi. The 'taxi' duly arrived (a rather plush Lincoln) and I noticed there was no meter. It did the job and cost $18. On the way back we got a taxi at the taxi rank (a 'Silver Cab' I think it was) and it cost $10. It was a proper taxi in that it did have a meter. I can't be certain, but I think the hotel ordered us a private hire 'taxi', which is not what we asked for and cost almost twice as much as the metered cab.

If you ask the hotel to order you a taxi, you might want to make it clear that you want a metered taxi - not a private hire.

As I've indicated, this is a good hotel run to a high standard and we woiuld stay there again. However, the minor niggles i've mentioned (particulalry the time share) take the shine off it a little.

Dear ‘Patch69’:
Thank you for staying with us and for your feedback about your experience! Your review is extremely insightful and we appreciate you taking the time to share with us and other prospective guests! We wish to apologize that the ‘timeshare’ folks seemingly caught you off guard- we will speak to the Management Team there to encourage this information be provided sooner in the conversation! Being that we are in a destination location, timeshare desks are popular and we understand that they are not for everyone. We are pleased to hear your experience was still enjoyable, in spite of that!
Furthermore, we are elated to read that you enjoyed the location, breakfast and hotel in general! Thank you for your input about adding Sea World to our shuttle schedule- our management team will review this suggestion! Of course, we welcome you to return anytime and wish you many happy travels!

Please connect with us on Facebook or Twitter, to stay informed of our upcoming specials!

Best wishes,
