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.

... once you get used to how the road signs operate you're fine. We have done about 1500 miles in thre weeks with petrol costing around 70p per litre.
Costs are not too dissimilar to home probably because the exchange rate is not really in our favour at the moment.
We have met and chatted to some fun and interesting people. How about the Canadians who come here as it is minus 25 degrees at home!

... today, we checked previously that we were going nowhere near any of the running routes. When we arrived at the cemetery, it made more sense to drive around since it was a lot bigger than expected. The cemetery is still used today, and it has an eerie feel to it, due to the moss overhanging from the low trees. The cemetery is also on the banks of a river and has some pretty opulent looking headstones and memorials.

After shivering my way through the freezing cold overnight bus I arrived in Orlando, Florida. I had my second couch surfing experience here. A guy the same age as me called Nathanael (Nate). He was kind enough to pick me up from the bus stop on his lunch break and drop me back at his apartment where I took a nap until he finished work! In the evening he introduced me to Sam, his girlfriend and a friend of theirs. We grabbed some Mexican food and had a little wonder around the ...
... the Whitehouse. So of course we all had a few pictures at the desk much to the amusement of the museum guides. I even had the added bonus of getting in for free because I'm military which didn't go down well with the others who had to pay $13! On Tuesday we went to the Stockyards in Fort Worth. This is a little area with cobbled roads made up to be like the Old West. We watched as some cowboys herded their cows down the road and then went to look around the Rodeo Hall of ...
... been walking for hours, he couldn't help his accent, BUT..... the parent could have at least attempted to get him to keep at least a little quiet, but no, she had a full blown convo about the reasons it couldn't be the "real" Indiana Jones" and then had a convo about Egypt with him, FFS he was about 3!! I'm all for encouraging childrens curiosity and all that, but I also believe in encouraging correct behaviour for the situation and this lady was being a ...
