Monumental Hotel Orlando
Ranked #202 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Reviewed 30 March 2014

The hotel is very beautiful on the outside.
We stayed for 3 nights and had a very nice stay.
Pros: very quiet, if you are craving peace, quiet and relaxation this is the place.
The pool is gorgeous, we had it to ourselves the entire time we were there and the kids had a blast.
The hotel staff was friendly.
Cons:
When you drive up the hotel there is no one to greet you at the front you have to walk a long way to get to the front desk, that makes no sense. It's easier to park in the parking lot and walk thru the pool area to get to the front desk.
The rooms need refurbishing as well as the cabanas at the pool, most of them did not have a covering. With some TLC this hotel could be really nice hotel it's as if the owners have given up and am not sure why.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled with family

After reading several reviews I was relieved to see a beautifully decorated hotel. The hallways were bright with well appointed artwork, the floors glistened, and attention to detail was evident by how each chair was lined up perfectly at the bar area. However, after checking in and unpacking my daughter noticed a few ants in the bathroom. Upon further inspection we saw that the ants were running across the dresser, night table and desk. About 5-10 in each place. The front desk staff told me they would "send someone up." After explaining I did not want to stay in this room but wanted one without ants they told me they did not think one was available. After packing up and staking out at the desk we were eventually placed in another, ant free, room.

The beds were comfortable, and we slept well. I would have expected a bit more, "we are sorry," and a bit less of a feeling that I was expected to stay in the room with ants, and was inconveniencing the front desk staff. I know that in Florida we sometimes have problems with insects, but it is inexcusable that no attempt was made my staff to quickly rectify the situation. I would not stay again.

calm, quiet, furnishing an excelent night of sleep. Close to the outlet premium at Vineland. Few minutes driving from seaworld. Nice staff. The only drawback is the breakfast, a little bit expensive, specially considering that is a buffet five minutes away for 8 bucks.

First this hotel is in a terrible location not near any restaurants or attractions on international drive. Second we did not have hot water for 3 consecutive nights so unable to shower before dinner. Third, there is no bar/restaurant available for lunch/dinner so if you wanted a snack or beer you were on your own. We were only in Orlando for 3 days and hoping for a much better hotel experience.

Wow what a great place to stay! The front desk staff were wonderful, pleasant and worked hard to please their guests! that makes a hotel stay a great experience…
Not too sure what other reviewers were talking about the condition of the hotel. We stayed at Five star Hotels that were worse than this. This hotel is well cared and very clean. Our room was newly updated with a large flat screen TV. The bathroom with new fixtures and carpets as well as the room very clean.
The staff deserves a double star for their great work! We did not find any negatives. We have traveled around the world and not found the quality that we found in this hotel. Well done! Keep up the good work!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevators it is much quieter. Most rooms have a beautiful view.

My experience of Monumental Hotel was excellent. Staff were polite (we didn't see very many, but everyone we saw was very pleasant) and the hotel was relatively quiet - just what you need I think when you've been hustling and bustling all day at parks - you need somewhere you can relax!

We went out of season which may explain why it was so quiet, decor was fine, beds were comfy - it had everything you needed without breaking the bank!

Large free car park which was a bonus and a bus stop right outside where the I-trolley stopped, handy if you're tired of driving! The area of the hotel is very quiet which was a plus for me, but you're literally a 5 minute drive from the main buzz of international drive, with lots of restaurants and easy routes to all the park - perfect!

Stayed at this hotel January 2014 as I was attending a trade show. Very disappointed at the quality of hotel. Hotel had a "run-down" feel to it. Room looked worn and in need of new paint and carpeting. Bathroom same. Worst part, I needed a mechanic to allow for hot water every time I wanted to take a shower. Really pathetic. The only redeeming quality was that the staff was understanding of these problems.
