I stay here at least twice a year on business. It's located close to the Orange County Convention Center (close enough that you could walk there in about 10-15 minutes), and it's reasonably priced, clean, and comfortable. In my experiences so far, the staff has always been friendly and accommodating. Also, they offer a continental breakfast, but I usually make the 10 minute drive over to Whole Foods or Einstein Bagels. No reason, just my preference. It's generally quiet, so you can rest at night, which is always a plus. The elevators are slow, as noted in another review, and parking can sometimes be a hassle depending on what's going on in the area convention-wise. It's in a good location with easy access from both the 528 and I-4, and is very close to all the major attractions (Disney, Universal, Sea World, Wet-N-Wild, Outlet Malls, etc.). Despite all this, it wouldn't be my first choice to stay in on a vacation. While it's nice enough and I have nothing bad to say about it (I do continue to stay here year after year), it is a Springhill, and if you've stayed in one, you've pretty much stayed in them all. Let's face it, it's Orlando, and if you're going to the major theme parks, it's totally worthwhile to stay in one of the resort's themed hotels, unless, of course, you're only there for one night.

Springhill Suites Orlando Convention Center had buffet breakfast included in the cost every morning including a waffle station, swimming pool was very clean and the hotel was very clean. Beds were very comfortable. Close to all major attractions.

I am glad you enjoyed your visit to the hotel and all of the benefits and amenities that we have to offer. With our free breakfast, free wireless high speed internet access and free transportation to the Walt Disney Resort area we offer a value you can't pass up. Oh, and did I mention that our suites are 25% larger than a standard guestroom? The Springhill Suites is a short drive to all attractions and there are many restaurants within walking distance. Thanks again for your feedback!

This was our 1st family trip to Disney and we did it on the spur of the moment for spring break. Being that we did little planning we hit the jackpot! The moment we checked in until the day we checked out was perfect! The room was very spacious and comfortable. It gave everyone room to hang out after long Disney days. The hotel had a Disney booth on site which was great for us as first timers we were able to get information calmly and unrushed. The breakfast buffet was also a handy way to start the day right without wasting time with an extra stop. The only issue here was that the waffle station was very popular and therefore always quite a wait. Perhaps they should give thought to one more machine. We enjoyed the pool a few of the days which was nice. The hot tub actually was removed for a kiddie shower pool though. You were able to use the hotel next door's hot tub but that was a bit inconvenient. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much and would gladly come back again.

Thank you for taking a moment and share your excellent review of our hotel. I am glad you had the opportunity to use most of the facilities at the hotel and made time to relax and hang out with friends and family.

Stayed here 4/16/12 to 4/21/12, Hotel and rooms are nice. Breakfast was good. The elevators were horribly slow. I was on the top floor and it was never a quick trip. I wasted so much of my time waiting and riding the slow elevators. New sofas were also delivered during my stay and I found them to be very uncomfortable. Overall, very quiet area and convenient to International drive.

Thank you for your feedback about the slowness of the elevators, it is a concern that we are currently addressing. Please accept my apology for the time wasted while waiting for the elevator when transiting to and from your room.

Good location on Universal Blvd - runs parallel to International Drive but doesn't have the traffic so it is very quiet. The hotel seems newer, is decorated for a sense of calm and has easy to clean surfaces. The location is great for access to shopping, parks, sightseeing and getting to the airport quickly. There's a small fitness center, pool, coin laundry and gift shop jam packed with things to buy at a heft price.

This place was so busy but it didn't seem to be log jammed until we got to the elevator. We waited and waited, the crowd grew, when the elevator arrived, there were too many people so we waited and waited, and the crowd grew...you get the idea.

The room was light, nicely decorated and felt spacious. The room has a desk and chair, sink,mini frig, microwave, a long sofa bed, and TV in the main room. The bed room is separated by a short wall and has a bed, night stands, small dresser with another TV. A sink with mirris is an a small space off the bedroom. The bathroom with toilet and tub/shower is in a room with a door.

Because we were in Orlando to see the sights, I got ready to put on my new shoes and socks. I walked to and from the bathroom, lifted my foot to put on a shoe and noticed that the sock bottom was filthy! Since the socks were brand new, I grabbed a cloth and swiped it along the carpet - filthy. What a shock! Looks are so deceiving!

We went to breakfast the next morning - coffee, egg like product, ham slices,various breads, juices, all at one area; waffles at another area. It's a basic element in a tourist town but it isn't a sustainable meal so look for real food less than a mile away.

Air quality was fine, the unit operates from a set of controls right on the unit itself. It rained while I was there so the air in the room seemed to become very humid and stale. There weren't other odors in the room or public areas.

Thank you for your feedback as we strive to provide excellent service to every guest, every time. Our suites are 25% larger than a standard guestroom and are cosidered studio suites throughout the Springhill Suites brand. Residence Inn, our sister hotel next door, has one and two bedroom suites with a separate bedroom to allow more privacy as needed. Thank you for the comment about the water pressure and we are looking into the issue.
