Embassy Suites Hotel Orlando Airport

... been at the park since it opened and my only wish was that this part had lasted longer. Next we met Maui who allowed us to give her hand signals and showed us all the clever tricks she could do, this included dancing, singing, jumping, kissing and even karate chopping!! The Dolphins were so happy and it was a lovely once in a lifetime experience. (Kirsty - unless of course you're me and keep coming back!).
The remainder of the day was spent ...
... with priority access. We were the first to board the plane and the flight was smooth and uneventful except for one moment where the pilot banked a steer so sharply that my wife thought we were going down and she woke me up in a fright.
We landed in Orlando early, got our bags and hit a small snafu when Emerald Aisle only had a mid-size vehicle that wouldn't fit all of our bags and ourselves. $100 later we drove off in a ...
So I have been in Florida for a few days now with Suzie and we are having so much fun! On our first day we went to Universal studios and it was a great day! We went to Harry Potter world first as that's what we were most excited for and it was probably better than we expected. They had a Hogwarts castle and inside there was a tour around the castle and a simulator ride which was incredibly good (it actually felt so real!!). They ...
... doing it twice as Duncan enjoyed it so much (the second time two people n our boat managed to get off barely wet at all - I dont know how they managd as we were wet through as were all the other people I had seen coming off it!)
As we walkd through the park to go home, It was 3.45pm and the Jammin Jungle Parade was about to start so we stopped to watch it (this is ...

We also went on the small roller coaster (Flight of the Hippogriff) that was over very fast and was quite uneventful. Of course we then needed some Butter Beer and stood in line to taste some of the famous drink. It was very delicious...a mixture of ginger ale and white chocolate ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Hotel Orlando Airport
Great place to stay before you leave
I stayed here the night before my flight back home. I checked in really early which was very nice of them to do because I was one of the lucky ones who went to the 12 hr race at Daytona the night before and hadn't gotten much sleep.. Rooms were amazing, noticed they were having work done on the roof which tied off half of the huge lobby but no big deal.. great place to sleep, beds were comfy, rooms were huge, and very close to the airport. Highly recommended.
Another great Embassy Suite
This Embassy Suite is located just a few miles from the airport. It was very clean and well maintained. The outdoor pool was larger than at most Embassy Suites. They offered the same great cooked to order breakfast that keeps our family coming back. It is also located near several restaurants.
We stayed at this Embassy Suites Hotel at the airport on sunday evening, April 3, 2005. We were very pleased. The rooms were clean and having the living room separate from the bedroom was a big plus. Also had two tv sets. With two teenagers you can just imagine. It was the next best thing to having your own home. The staff could not have been nicer, especially Steve , the shuttle driver to and from the airport. He went out of his way to help us out. Would defintely stay here again. I thought the price was not bad for what you received. Check the Embassy Suites Hotel website and get the internet rate. Great deal!
A superb hotel and staff
This is a fantastic hotel with a wonderful staff. We stayed here for three nights 11th -14th August. We were there the night of the hurricane. The power went out during the hurricane but as soon as the worst had passed they were able to switch to emergency generators. We had no full power all night but they managed to provide an excellent cold buffet breakfast for a full hotel. Full power was restored next morning. The staff continued to smile throughout. We were very impressed with this hotel. The staff have a terrific team spirit. The rooms are great, the manager's evening reception is a must and the food is very good.
Me and my wife stayed here one night on august the 2nd - 2004. Its a great hotel, Very nice and clean. Large nice rooms. very nice breakfast. perfect for those passing by. But a little to far away from Orlando's themeparks. Choose another hotel if you are here for the themeparks. Choose this hotel for everything else. We would not hesitate to stay here again the next year when we come back again.

This is a great place to stay at while in Orlando
The hotel was very nice. They serve a full hot cook
to order breakfast every morning. The pools were
clean and the rooms were very clean. There are some beautiful pine trees outside this hotel.
Awesome Place to Stay
I went as a college freshman to Orlando in 2002 and stayed here with a group of 5. The hotel was GORGEOUS and the best part may have been the HUGE breakfast buffet every morning. The lobby was a lucious, green tropical paradise.
The suites in this hotel were a great value. For the same price as a group of friends staying at a WDW propety, we got a hotel room that was more than double the size along with that free breakfast. The transportation to-and-from DisneyWorld runs constantly and we had very little trouble.
You will love this hotel!
Okay hotel, but...
It looks like the management is inefficient. At breakfast, they were constantly out of teaspoons, out of forks, out of bananas, out of yogurt. If you want scrambled eggs or bacon, "the attendant has to serve you", but the attendant cannot cope when the hotel is crowded.
There were long lines for coffee, eggs, even to get a tray...very tiring experience.Otherwise, it was really quiet in a hotel that is so close to the airport and the people who work there are nice and are trying hard to please and this is a plus.
I stayed here in November 2003. This is a great choice for business travel. The food service, housekeeping, and amenities are first rate, and the location is very convenient to the airport and dining. The complimentary cooked to order breakfast and evening reception make this hotel an extremely good value for the money.
Great hotel. Found out that they offer upgrade for less than $12 which includes fax, local phone, and wireless internet. Good service and food. Value good as well. Highly recommend
