... before lunch, so we got some chips and guacamole from the Mexico pavilion. Then we took a ride on Maelstrom in Norway. Next it was time for lunch at Biergarten in Germany. After lunch, we had a few Fastpasses to use. First up was Soarin'... again. This is also where we started really noticing the lower crowds. Within the next few hours we hit up Living with the Land, The Seas with Nemo, Test Track, Mission Space, and Spaceship Earth. A stop at Club Cool is always nice when needing ...
... feet tall. Unlike other wave pools this only had one giant wave every 90 seconds, instead of continuous small ones. The water rides were all really good, but were rudely interrupted by a heavy storm. To begin with it was kind of fun going around the lazy river in torrential rain! But after a while all rides were closed as a lightening precaution, sending everyone conveniently heading for the gift ...

Of course we weren't about to let this spoil our day and after grabbing some Nachos and enjoying them with our drinks in the sun, it was time for some more fun.
We headed for the water slides which were fun but a bit tame compared to some of the other water parks we would visit later on, we then went in the wave pool where a huge 7ft tsunami wave is launched at you every ...

I started to push the wheelchair towards the door when Min shouted "no I want to listen to this". What, I thought, you want to voluntarily sit in this searing heat and listen to all this Jingoistic, ear bursting claptrap? I reckoned that if we were in England in the boiling heat and a band started playing patriotic songs I don't suppose for a moment that any British people would be clutching their chests and standing ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Orlando International Drive North
Great Until Checkout
My family and have just returned from 2 weeks at the Hilton Garden Inn. All our stay was absolutley fine untill the last day when we had to check out. We knew that we had to vacate our rooms at 11am which was fine what we did not expect that between 11am and our airport check in time 7.30pm the hotel did not have anywhere to store our luggage as the hotel would not let us pay for an additional day or a late check out. Once more the hotel manager told us that there were no complimentery rooms where we could shower and get changed. All he offered us was to get showered in the outside pool area shower and to get changed in the Hotel Lobby public toilets which we was appalled at.
If you are not flying till late avoid this hotel.
My wife and I have just returned from 14 nights at Hilton Garden Inn and found it to be the best hotel we've stayed at in Orlando (and we've stayed in quite a fair few of them) - as others have described it's nearly new (opened early 2004) and,although only a small hotel (which we regard as a good thing!),it's as close to perfect as you can get;check-in staff were unbelievably polite and helpful,hotel is spotlessly clean,pool is ideally proportioned and appointed,room was excellent size and wonderfully supplied with Neutrogena products,small fridge,microwave,coffee-maker,tv with great reception - all in all we couldn't ask for anything else. Please don't believe that the location is less than desirable;there's nothing wrong with American Way whatsoever - there are three new hotels in this road so it can't be that bad!! As for someone stating that it's not close to anything - what? It's about a one minute walk to an I-HOP,one minute the other direction to Denny's diner,two minutes walk to Wet n Wild,three minutes to Walgreens (which sell nearly everything handy and are open 24 hours),one mile to Universal/Citywalk etc etc - how close can you get? Still,we loved it and would go back tomorrow with no qualms whatsoever.
My husband I stayed here while he attended a business conference. While the rooms are not as nice as the homewood Suites next door, they are pleasant. The lobby was very nice, too. The front desk was friendly but not very helpful about things to do in the area, which seemed weird since this was Orlando! The hotel also has fresh baked cookies at the front desk for a few hours in the evening. The hotel has a small "restaurant" in the front of the lobby, too. The prices are a bit steep, so I'd advise eating away from the hotel. The fitness room is small with 6 or 7 machnes. I believe there wer twoels there, too. The room was very clean, with a desk, work chair, microwave, and refrigerator. I was not fond of the air conditioning unit, as we could never keep it from getting too cold or too humid. The furniture was traditional faux cherry and in great condition. We stayed at this hotel for four days and never real problems, but the housekeeper did forget to take our dirty towels with her one time (even though she left fresh towels---go figure!). Overall, it was a great stay!
My husband is a Hilton Honors member and requested a non-smoking room through an online booking. We arrived around 7 pm or so, and checked into our room. We quickly smelled the odor of smoke in our room (as it was apparently a smoking room) and my husband went downstairs to get a non-smoking room, as we had requested in our booking. Apparently there were only two rooms left in the hotel, so we were given a room on the first floor. We had booked a King room, but then to get a non-smoking room, had to take a room with two double beds instead. I do not usually like the first floor. However, for the first floor, it was fairly quiet. We were told the first floor had WIRELESS high speed internet access. (The other floors had high speed internet we were told, but not wireless.) However, no wireless connection signal could be found in our room, so we had to use the wired/cable hook up provided in the room to obtain internet access. The access was fine, but I was confused because we were specifically told the first floor had wireless internet. We have used wireless internet on our laptop in other hotels with no problems, so it appears there was no wireless service available in our room.
Good hotel, not great location
Rooms are spacious and extremely clean (but it is an almost new hotel).
Food in the restaurant was very nice and not too pricey but the location of the restaurant is not great, in the foyer, no privacy. Also there is no bar worth talking about.
Pool area was very good, loads of loungers, cabanas, etc. Also plenty of towels.
Staff were very polite and obliging.
Ideal for Universal and Wet `n` Wild.
One shortcoming is the location of the hotel itself, slightly off the main drag and not well lit at night.
Overall an enjoyable stay but there are better value hotels nearby.
One of the best
The hotel was pleasing to the eye, the lobby, the rooms, the outdoor pool and spa area. The staff went out of their way to provide us with everything we needed. The room was unexpectedly lovely, and very clean and fresh. The pool area and the gardens surrounding were beautiful. Everything was top rate!
We arrived late to the Hilton Garden Inn North. We were given a smoking room when a non smoking was requested. This was corrected but not without some searching by the desk clerk who informed me that this was the room I requested.
Small but nice hotel, less nice location
Good for budget travelers, who want cleanliness above all. Small but nice, very clean hotel (it is new). Service is acceptable. Clerck is friendly. Hotel location is bad, cheap looking area and hotels in the surroundings. Very small pool, I haven't used it. I was there for business in 3/2005, payed $100/night through an intermediary agency, strong suspicion I've been overcharged. DO NOT expect a true "Hilton" quality.
Very very nice
Really clean rooms as well as the rest of the hotel, great work out room, pool area does not have much personality especially at night its lit like a basketball court but good size jacuzzi, very friendly staff. complimentary high speed, laundry on 3floors..I highly recommend it and they will honor there coupon rate thats amazing for a hotel that clean. Soft beds also. There are an amazing amount of terrible hotels in tpa/orlando area so this is a great place if you appreciate CLEAN at a decent price especially if you pay out of your own pocket and do not have the luxury of a corp. act.
My wife and I stayed here from 9th through 14th Oct 2004 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is virtually brand new so everything works and looks good. The staff are also very helpful and friendly, especially those in the breakfast room. The room includes a fridge, coffee maker and microwave (standard for Garden Inns, I expect) and we had no problems getting extra coffee when we ran out one night.
