Reviewed 6 June 2014

Great space and value for a family trip to Orlando. Two bedroom, two bath suite was perfect for family of 4. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Having a kitchen was great, but grocery stores not plentiful.

My family visited Orlando again after many trips. I had never heard of the Sonesta Es Suites before. I can just say that this was the best trip ever. We stayed in a two bedroom suite. The beds were super comfortable. The room was very clean with plenty of room. When I entered the hotel to check in, everything was clean and fresh and newly remodeled. Vanessa is the greatest. I could tell that she really cares about her job and her customer service is premier and the staff is very friendly. I was surprise to see that there was a lot of security personel which made me feel safe. We were there to visit Sea World, which was only a 5 minute drive. We will be visiting Orlando again and I already know where we will be staying. When I returned to work after my trip, I told all my co-workers about how great my stay was and suggested that when they take a trip to Orlando, that they need to stay at the Sonesta Es Suites. I can't say anything bad about my stay. It was great!

I visited Sonesta ES Suites Orlando, FL this past weekend. I was only there for a weekend getaway to help a friend celebrate her 30th birthday. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite that was awesome. The hotel is newly remodeled and the rooms look great. The hotel is along International Drive in a GREAT location. There are nearby restaurants and bars that are in walking distance. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend. Since we only used the hotel for sleeping I can't disucss any of the hotel amenities but I'm thinking breakfast has to be good because the breakfast area was FULL when I passed through for checkout.

We stayed in a 2 room suite, the bedrooms and sitting areas are great. The kitchen is good for a quick snack although probably not good enough to prepare proper meals, not that this really matters when so many of the restaurants and bars on I Drive are within walking distance. The breakfast provided is a self service selection of cereals, toasts, pastries, fruit and American style hot food and is reasonable enough with its main advantage being the speed and convenience it offers when you want an early start to be first in line at the theme parks. The pool area is basic but ok to relax in after a busy day out. The only negative we found was the lack of balconies to the rooms and outside space in general, you can sit on the 2nd floor pool deck in the evening when the pool has closed but this isn't really convenient unless your room is close by.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms near the pool deck are good, avoid ground floors next to the external gates which ar...

Rooms were amazing due to recent renovations. I just hope they stay that way as this will be my go to place in Orlando. Breakfast first morning was OK. Second morning breakfast seemed to be better but crowded so we ended up at a restaurant.

The hotel was very quiet with the amount of people staying. We always found a parking space. There was key access to enter so we felt very safe.

The elevators seemed to skip the renovations,they were slow or appeared to be non functional off and on.

The water in the bathroom toliets seemed to have a strong odor almost like sulfur or sewage.

Overall its was a great stay and will stay again.
