"Mary" the receiving nurse/surgical coordinator took me to the prep area where Billy would join me for photo ops (ha) and meet with Surgeon (Dr Travis Van Dyke) and Anesthesiologist (Dr. Feiner) before going into surgery.
They confirmed what we had discussed about having an "anterior approach" which "is trickier but has much better recovery time and more practical post ...
... now as it was 8.30pm (12.30am UK time)
It was about 9.30pm when we pulled into the road where we were staying - and then we had a merry game where we drove up and down, and up and down looking for number 625. Matt got out and was using the light on hi phone to try and spot house numbers and then got a neighbour to help. Eventually they found it (obviously - it was next door to 617!!)
...only to find Matt ...
... been in the 12+ years since that tragic day and for once I didn't get felt up (bit disappointed with this really)!
Starving hungry we found a place to eat breakfast (Garfunkel's). If we had bothered to do our research and found the Red Lion we could have saved ourselves a whole pound each on the price of the traditional breakfast. Wowwwweee! Apart from feeling it was overpriced the food was nice enough and everything is overpriced at airports.
... YUM!! The girls then had their hearts set on going in to buy a wand, so we went through Ollivanders, a shop where a wizard explains how to go about selecting a wand that's right for you. The girls then took some time to decide which wand was for them.. Rachel decided on Snape's wand and Sophie got Hermione's wand. They were both tickled pink with their choices!
After a spot of lunch and a further look around at the other ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Hotel Orlando - North Altamonte Springs
Because of the managers reception, and complimentary breakfast, Embassy Suites are always a good bet.
Hilton should invest in this Hotel .
Renovations going on and rude construction workers with attitudes. I was put as far away from Atrium as possible in the next building adjoining. I am a Hilton Diamond member. Very dissappointed with no USA today delivery.
Room would not get below 70 degrees. I'll stay down the road at the Homewood Suites at the next exit down for my trip next week.
I'd give this a 4 'bubble' review except that we ran into a few problems that one should not encounter in one visit in a 4 star establishment. The front dest staff was courteous and accommodating. Our first room was very clean and comfortable except that the a/c didn't cool and the room was 'muggy/musty', after all as native Floridians we are accustomed to cooling issues in this hot, humid summer weather. We gave the unit 4 hours to cool to comfortable temperature and the maintenance man did all he could do, but the room never lost the muggy/warm feeling. They were able to move us to a comparable room but with a better view where the a/c did cool appropriately. However, this room was not without it's own set of problems - although not 'serious', were still annoying for the price paid and being our 2nd room. The a/c unit, which is housed in the bathroom, leaked on anyone in the toilet/basin area of the bathroom. The water which leaked was a slightly rusty color which if it had gotten on our clothing would have discolored it. (We did not use this room once we dressed for the day.) There were also a couple of housekeeping issues - cigarette ashes on the floor of the bedroom (in front of the night stand) in our non-smoking room (fortunately there was no cigarette smell). The other minor issue was an empty plastic soda bottle on the balcony. Neither problem was a health issue, but still a housekeeping oversight which should be avoided. We stay in many very nice hotels and overall this Embassy Suites is a nice, older property. Just a little more attention to room housekeeping and maintenance needs to be given. It may be nearing time for an update in the rooms. Commons locations were very nice and breakfast was pleasant as well. The 'egg' man at breakfast was entertaining and friendly.
I have an idea for the next season of the TV show the "Simple Life". In this season Paris would actually go an stay at one of the properties owned by the Hitlon chain such as the Embassy Suites Altamonte Springs. Let's see how she deals with 1) An aging overpriced ($114 AAA rate) hotel that needs a tear down the walls remodel. The room was updated in the past few years with new furniture but the bathroom was sorely in need of updating. Also, the room has a very musty smell that was masked by that spray used by housekeeping staffs. 2) The breakfast was horrible. There was a kids soccer tournament staying there and it was overrun by kids - the line was long, food was awful and not worth the 20 minute wait in line. Cook was really working it though - However they should have had more than one on a holiday weekend. My wife actually vomited after eating bacon from the breakfast bar. 3) Pool area was infested with wild kids and looked like a pack of wolves had gone through there. Also, it was so humid in the pool area it was impossible to sit in the area. 4) There was no hot water (lukewarm only) during the morning hours. Either don't sleep in or be prepared to shower in the evening if the hotel is full.
We selected this Embassy Suites property versus a bad stay at the Jamaican Court property, and since it had a fully indoor pool. It was too cold for outdoor swimming in January. It is located just off I-4, and was situated next to a lake with public walk around. There was some construction in the area surrounding property, and I would ask for lake view. The lake sits between hotel, and I-4. At first I was nervous since there was a Target job fair being held there, and there were so many people in and around the lobby, and atrium. I checked in , and the front desk manager told me not to worry, they would be leaving by reception time! There were no luggage racks, but he tracked one down, and personally came out to our car, and helped us and escorted us to our room.
Good place to stay for business trip. THe hotel is beautiful and has a ton of plant life in the hotel.
We stayed here in April 2005 while visiting friends in Orlando. The hotel is 20-30 minutes from downtown (depending on traffic) and is located just off I-4 in Altamonte Springs. Accomodations were consistent with an average Embassy Suites hotel. Like most hotels in this chain, the majority of rooms face an inner courtyard with attractive tropical landscaping, streams, and a gazebo. Our room was located in the "Palm Building," which was quiet but remote from the rest of the hotel. The beds were brand new and very firm; the bathroom was simply average with a scuffed and dirty floor and some mold visible around the tub. Oddly, we didn't receive a newspaper outside our door (although two of our neighbors did) for either of the two mornings we were there. Breakfast was standard for this chain, plentiful and convenient but not stellar. The hotel is located on a lake that has a pleasant walking path and is adjacent to Altamonte Drive, which has a variety of chain restaurants, grocery stores, bookstores, etc. We would stay here again if we had business in the northern Orlando area but would otherwise choose to stay closer to downtown/the airport/convention center/theme parks since this hotel is less convenient for those areas.
Okay to start the front desk staff wasnt the nicest, but everything else so made up for it. The lobby (courtyard) is beautiful. There was a couple getting married in the gazebo and it was so romantic (we were there on our 10th anniversary) The room was big, the bed was a little soft, but everything was very clean and well maintained. One of the best parts is the complimentary cooked to order breakfast and complimentary cocktails from 5:30 - 7:00 each evening. There is a beautiful right outside with a walkway.... truly breathtaking views. This place was awesome, and we will be going back very soon!
Went down Valentines Day weekend - wanted the Embassy Suites Downtown Orlando, but too $$ ($200+/night); Altamonte gave us a deal - $100/night for the whole weekend. I thought the breakfast was great considering it was included -- omelettes/eggs cooked to order, pancakes, french toast, biscuits, grits, gravy, etc. Room was a little damp smelling, but it's Florida and that's what happens when you don't keep rooms airconditioned all the time. Opened the sliding doors and it was gone in a while. Omaha Steak restaurant is on the first floor - not bad, but a TON of money for what you get (NY strip and a DRY baked potato - $35.) There is a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in the area - go find that instead. I am a big fan of Embassy Suites because of the breakfasts and the room sizes; this one is also in a GREAT location. There is food in all directions from the hotel, I-4 is 2 easy stoplights away, huge mall on the east side of the hotel, Disney is 20-25 minutes away ( but not in rush hour ), Sea World is 15-20 minutes, Downtown is 10-15 (again, not in rush hour). I would like to mention to anyone going to Orlando and renting a car for the first time that #1 Orlando has rush hours based on Disney opening/closing times that CAN BE comparable to the WORST urban traffic you have ever been in and #2, REMEMBER EVERYTHING YOU EVER LEARNED ABOUT DRIVING DEFENSIVELY because the WORST driving in the United States is in Florida and MOSTLY Orlando. I lived there for 4 years and every time I go back it gets worse, so just BE READY.
OK, But Breakfast needs improving
Good Hotel, Helpful staff, and animal friendly. The Breakfast Buffet needs much improvement though.
