... that the ride goes up and down a few times and not just once. It was more times than I thought. I could hear everybody screaming on this one. The first drop you would think would be the worst but it's almost like everybody was anticipating it so it wasn't that bad but I think the next ones were scarier because you didn't know when it was happening or you didn't know how high you'd go to how much you'd drop again. We all walked out of the ride a bit shocked but Larry, again ...
... We went on some more rides and I am definitely at the conclusion that my bold pressure can not handle roller coasters.... It's only taken me 12 to figure that out.... A huge day of walking, applying sunscreen and drinking lots of water and then a nice big ...
... us almost 10 minutes to get through, we parked up and then had the mammoth walk to get to the park. It was heaving on the walk in, but, fortunately for us about 90% of people were heading for IOA. So we hit the park and decided just to head off and start doing rides and work our way round in an anti clockwise direction. First things first though, we bumped into Mr Squarepants and his friends who were doing a bit of a show, then posing for some photos, ...
... a scenic highway from Orlando to the beach and took many beautiful pictures of palm trees and the ocean! Then we wanted to spend some family time together because it was 2 days before Christmas! It was time to go to the only Christmas theme park in Tampa. Busch Gardens Christmas Town! With over a million lights, it was a nice experience.. until trouble started. ...
We really fancied going to the cinema, and after having a look around online found that we could go to an early showing of a new film called 'Prisoners' at the cinema at universal for the bargain price of $6.50! We got a large drink to share, and it was enormous! The film was a kidnap/ thriller sort of film with Hugh Jackman, and we both ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Orlando Airport
April 19 2005. We stayed here one night on the way to Vero beach. Great pool,great pool bar! Room was very nice. Food was great. We payed $70 on Priceline.com. Sorry we couldn't stay longer.
Do not waste your time or money staying at this hotel! We booked our room several days in advance as we were picking up a guest at the airport and returning to the Orlando area later in the week. We reserved a non smoking double room and our credit card was charged. When we returned to the hotel on the evening of the reservation, all the non smoking rooms were gone. It was 11:00 pm, too late to start looking as we had a 7:00 am flight the next morning. The front desk had no apology and could have cared less. Our room reeked of smoke and the "elite status" membership got us a view of the roof. The phone had no cover switch plate and we were trying, in vain, to reach the front desk for a wake up call. There are lots of other choices for better hotels in the immediate area and we will never return to the Marriott. They have lost our business.
Unhappy in Vail, Colorado
My 14 year old son and I stayed at this Marriott on March 26th before going back home on March 27th. It was conveniently located near the airport and the room was large and clean. The bathroom was spacious and the pool area was great. You could not hear the planes taking off and landing, but it was easy to hear other guests in the next room having a conversation. Other than being a little noisy, it was a nice hotel.
We stayed on 12/26 after flying in from OK. The room was very nice and the facilities were lovely. The kids and my husband checked out the hot tub and pool (half inside, half out and heated as it was COLD for Florida) and I used the exercise room the next morning and it was great. The shuttle service from the airport was excellent and we had no issues checking in. We had used Priceline and our room rate was $57 including tax. I would definitely stay there again.
There is a Denny's, Bennigans, Tony Roma's and Chilis within walking distance and a very nice pond with a path around it right in front of the hotel.
We booked this hotel after flying into Orlando International and were very disappointed. They only had a King size bed available for four people! Our reservation was for four, but they obviously screwed up the reservation. It was New Years Eve and the pool, restaurant, and bar areas were closed for a private parties! Needless to say, we left and checked into Holiday Inn Select next door. What a difference! They had double beds available and all the amentites were open to hotel guests.
Nice hotel but NOISY
Stayed for one night prior to departure to airport. The room was great - good size, nicely decorated, comfortable beds with nice linens. Food from room service was well above average and competitively priced. Room was well insulated from outside noise, but the room to room sound insulation was appalling. We were woken by a family returning late evening and we could fully hear all their conversation, then again by a child crying - so loud it sounded like it was in our own room. Such a shame because the quality of the room and food was really very good. Would not stay again.
Is it discrimination?
I loved this hotel from outside and was excited to find out how the room was. I hoped it be as good as the airport marriot i stayed at in Toronto.
My dissappointment was to find out that they din't have any non-smoking room reserved for me. The receptionist was defensive enough to say that priceline only tells them to reserve 'a room'.
Not having any other option at 12:30 AM, I just accepted the room and spent most of the night adjusting with the smell.
I don't understand this, did anybody else have similar experience?
Had a nice stay.
All and all, we had a wonderfull stay at the Mariott Orlando Airport.
We used Priceline and paid $40 per night for a three night stay.
Staff was pleasant, room was clean, and pool area is great!
I would stay there again if returning to Orlando.
Big problem working in lobby
The hotel itself is not bad, but when you have to deal with "david" the concierge from hell, Watchout!!!
I requested a taxi to the downtown area, David calls a buddy who has a van who charges $15 more. Nice commision for David?
I refused the van, and again requested a taxi, David leaves to make a call, when he comes back he tells me its going to be a long time and has no idea how long its going to take for the taxi. This is when I return inside the hotel to get Phone# of taxi co., they have no record of the call. David calls another friend.
I request a taxi from Yellow taxi co. when another friend of David shows up in a taxi. I here David yelling out to me, in a very agressive manner, to take his budddy Taxi. " NO WAY"
Finally my taxi arrives and the driver informs me of David's reputation, while David is still acting in unrational manner. Mariott needs to retrain this worker in Public Relations.
Never Again Will I stay in this Hotel!!!
We spent one night here recently before a cruise. We found the hotel to be beautiful and clean and the staff was very accomodating. We were able to get a great deal from Priceline and wereexcited about how nice this hotel was for the rate.
