“The hotel may be tired, but the staff is not”
Reviewed 19 November 2011

I had a conference to attend that was being held at the Peabody hotel, but I didn't want to pay Peabody rates, so being a Marriott fan I chose this hotel.

You get what you pay for - a two bedroom suite was considerably less than a single room at the Peabody, but this is a Residence Inn that could do with a little renovation. The refrigerator in the kitchen area looked like someone had been at it with a ball peen hammer.

However, although the room was worn it was very clean. The water was hot and the free Internet access was relatively snappy. You also can't beat the location, within easy walking distance of both the Peabody, the Convention Center and a number of restaurants and activities.

Plus, I have to say a word about the friendly staff. They were amazing. One of the women actually broke out into song at breakfast.

If a no frills place to stay near the convention center is what you are looking for, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel. If you want something a little nicer or closer to the parks, look elsewhere.

Breakfast buffet was great with so many choices and the week night manager's reception was really a full meal with free beer and wine too! I was attending a conference at the convention center so I used conference sponsored buses but could also walk a little far but not bad and there was also the trolley system to get around with. All the little "extras" made it enjoyable and I would stay again.

The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. The chocolate covered strawberries at check in was a nice touch, too!

We really enjoyed the staff hospitality. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet, especially the fresh fruits. We loved the swimming pool. The physical property is badly in need of renovation and is dated. Close to the convention center and local restaurants. Would likely stay at this location in the future.

+: Appreciated the complimentary beverage at check in for being a Marriott Rewards member.
Enjoyed the breakfast buffet but wish it didn't end so early (vacation should be a chance to sleep in!). Very clean; friendly staff.

Delicious fruit infused water in lobby, but it was frequently empty.

-: Not much to do within walking distance.
Need more newspapers available; 50% of the time they ran out by early am. (If you're going to advertise it, follow through with a reasonable quantity.) First room had 2 tiny bugs (dead) on bed, looked like fruit flies; clerk apologized and assigned a new room and said it would be addressed immediately.

Stayed here while attending a conference at the OCCC. Very reasonably priced, wonderful customer service. The room was clean, bed was very comfortable. Staff was outstanding. We were able to walk to restaurants and used the trolley system to venture further. Also free shuttle to disney was great. Breakfast staff were very attentive and food was plentiful. Loved the oatmeal and toppings! I would definitely stay here again.

We picked this hotel as it was part of the Marriot chain and found it to be ideally placed as after a busy day driving we could park up the car and walk to the numerous bars and resturantsiuncluding those at the pointe. The suite was great lots of room for the two of us and all the equipment we needed. The coffee was restocked in the room continually along with the towels. Breakfast was a bonus with lots of simple fayre along with drinks and snacks at happy hour mon-thurs. The staff were also very helpful the only minus was that the fitness room only contained 2 treadmills and a cross trainer.
