Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Orlando - Convention Center
Fantastic hotel !!
I was very impressed by this hotel. The staff were always eager to help and nothing seemed to be any trouble to them. They were very informative re: the surrounding area. It is situated only a 5 minute walk to I-drive. There was a complimentary shuttle to Universal Studios at various times throughout the day from a neighbouring hotel (2 mins walk) There was no complimentary shuttle to disney so we used a shuttle from a neighbouring hotel (around $10 per person return). We had a great time and I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone.
I will never stay at another Hampton Inn for as long as I live. Our stay was nice, but the people behind the counter are not so helpful. This specific hotel charged our account twice, and then would not do much to help clear up the problem. They kept giving us the run around, not returning our phone calls, and even blamed us for the extra charges. They finally acknowledged that it was their error because they charged our account for another rooms fees. They did not offer an apology, but would refund our money. Because of their unduly charges, we are facing many other charges, and they won't even consider helping us to take care of them. It is their fault that we are in the mess we are in, and we deserve our money. At Least an apology!
Warm and welcoming
It is such a pleasure to be welcomed by hotel personnel who seem genuinely pleased you are a guest!
Initially our decision to stay at this hotel was based on its walking-distance proximity to the Orlando Convention Center. However, we and others in our party all agreed that we will stay here on any future trips to the Orlando area, even if we are not attending meetings at the Convention Center.
We were also extremely impressed with the varied breakfast choices tastefully served in the home-like lobby area. And, unlike other hotels, we all were able to access their free high-speed internet service without encountering glitches.
The only reason I did not rate this hotel as "excellent" is due to the difficulty in seeing the sign for the hotel which needs to be displayed more prominently.
A good hotel, but not as good as other Hamptons
Quite a good hotel, but not as good as other Hampton Inns we have been to. Rooms were clean and spacious. No internet and not even a pay-phone available, only the very expensive hotel phone. Nice location, only a few minutes to I-Drive and Convention Center and very quite.
Good hotel stay
I stay for 6 days at this hotel during Christmas week. First day check in I smell mild chlorine in the hallway. The room that I stay in on the 2nd floor is good. The bathroom is good. The elevator is good.
Breakfast is basic. Didnt swim in the pool. This hotel is the nearest to the convention. It run parallel with Int Drive, but its on the other side. For the location and the money and free breakfast, I give it above average.
Not Near the Convention Center!
The hotel is average but is not near the Convention Center! I asked specfically when I was booking my group there and was told by the manager that they are "right across the street". That was a lie as it is a mile!I am told that the Sierra Suites a bloack away is much better.

... masses. All the bays are linked by a lazy river and they supply colourful rings to float around on. We stayed down there till about 4pm. It was really hot and we went in the water many times and stayed in for ages. Went round the lazy river a few times too. they have a soda deal going where you buy a large insulated mug perhaps 2 pints for $12 and you can then refill it endlessly for free. Excellent ...
The park entrance was a 20 minute walk from the parking garage which is no big deal unless when you get to the gate you realize that your wallet and hence your photo ID are back in the car (Jeff!). But, being Jeff, he has a photo of his photo ID (driver's license AND passport) on his phone; but would they be accepted? Yes! In fact, neither of us was asked for an ID. it's a darn good thing we didn't walk all the way back to ...
... Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour, it’s all there! The staff are all completely in character, it really is great fun if you’re a Potter fan!
We looked around the first couple of stores, Rosie purchasing her own Chocolate Frog (even being told to make sure she eats the legs first so it doesn’t hop away!), then I made my way to Ollivanders. Yes, I know I’m 28, but I wanted a wand dammit and so I went through the ...
... buy an interactive wand that they can they go around to different spots following a map and cast spells at certain places which then different things in windows happen. There were people of all ages doing this and it was interesting to see the Potter heads all dressed up top to toe in Harry Potter outfits(yes of course you can buy the robes, scarfs, jumpers basically everything for each 'House’)and casting their spells.
Universal also had a number of the Macy ...
... pass' this ride for many reasons that all seem ridiculous in hind site. The line was an estimated one hour long, so to the back we went. At least it was air conditioned in their labyrinth of zig zagged line formation. One hour later we were choosing our 3D glasses and climbing aboard. What a ride! It really was worth the wait. It was like a bunch of computerised arcade games that you are wizzed to on your little car. We promised Samuel that we would definitely ...
