    Historical Traveler Reviews SpringHill Suites Orlando Convention Center

    Very good Hotel to stay

    from

    i was staied in this hotel with my family, the room is very good, the pool is very good and very clean, the staff is friendly everithing is good, i hope stay in this hotel again soon.

    Sorry about my english but i try...

    10 out of 10

    from

    After three weeks at the Springhill Suites I can only say very positive things about it.

    The rooms were big enough for the four of us so much so that we never felt like we were in each others way.

    The staff were very friendly and also helped with any problems that we had (i.e moved my parents to a suite two doors away without any fuss), not that we had any problems really.

    The rooms were cleaned and towels freshed up every day.

    The pool was of a decent size and was never that busy. (pool towels provided)

    The location of the hotel was for me ideal, 5 min walk from Int Drive, 10 min

    drive to Universal, 15/30 min drive to Disney depending on traffic on Int 4.

    (I would recomend that anybody going to the area to hire a car, very easy to drive in the US, I believe that the shuttle busses could be a little better but this would apply to most Hotels anyway)

    Gym looked basic but who goes on HOLIDAY to get fit ( Stepper, Treadmill, EX Bike)

    The breakfast area could get busy at times but there was more than enough choice to keep the six of us intrested for the 3 weeks( Sausage, Egg, Cerials Breads, Cakes, Waffles (make your own) ,Porrige, Spreads, Tea, Coffe, Juice, Milk, Bananas, Apples, Cookies) Im sure ive missed something off.

    All in All I would go back to Springhill Suites without any hesitation. Hope this proves usefull and accurate to anybody thimnking of going to this Hotel.

    Wonderful location and room!

    from

    The suite was wonderful, with 2 queen beds, full-size sofabed, and kitchenette. My parents stayed with us the day before and after their cruise, so the extra space was very accommodating (and the people at the front desk placed us close to the elevators since my parents are older). The kitchenette with its small refrigerator was perfect to keep our drinks and leftovers cold; we appreciated the ability to take a snack break and to eat leftovers from Dan Marino's Tavern. During the week, we were able to take shuttles to Universal Studios, Sea World, and Wet n' Wild by going to the hotel next door and saved on parking fees. Breakfast had enough variations (egg patties to make a egg sandwich, bagels, and make your own waffles) to get everyone off to a great start. The kids enjoyed the pool and the bubble fountain for playtime. Finally, the hotel was 1/2 block away from busy International Drive by being on Universal Drive. Our driving around the area was a lot less hectic, and the evenings were very quiet. Perfect beginnings and endings to very busy days!

    Great Hotel!

    from

    We would highly recommend staying at the Springhill Suites. The hotel is set back off International Drive meaning that it has a quiet location but still within easy reach of I Drive ie 5 minutes walk.

    The rooms were very clean and well maintained, extremely spacious for myself and my husband. The fridge was wonderful for coming home in the evening after a day at the park or shopping to have a cool drink. Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is sufficient to set you up for your busy day ahead. The power shower is fantastic - I want one at home now!

    On the downside, the hotel only has 25 safe deposit boxes for 167 rooms. We had to wait 3-4 days before a safe became available. It was not ideal as we had to hide our travellers cheques and passports in our room and keep our fingers crossed! The other drawback is that the hotel only runs a courtesy bus to DisneyWorld. You have to make your own travel arrangements to Universal. The shuttle bus to Disney leaves the hotel 3 times per day and collects you at 3 separate times from the Disney Park. They are relatively old buses which could do with an upgrade in the air conditioning and unfortunately, the bus collects people from other hotels. The Springhill Suites are one of the last on the list and it was always difficult to get a seat. Normally, this meant a long stand on a very hot bus for about 40 mins to 1 hour! We decided to stay for the fireworks at Disney on 4 July and were told by the bus driver that there were no spaces left on the return bus at 10pm so we had to pay $30 for a taxi.

    However, these drawbacks did not reduce our opinion of the hotel. Having stayed at other hotels in Florida, these Suites were far superior and we would recommend you to pay them a visit.

    We highly reccomend it!

    from

    The Springhill Suites Orlando Convention Center is one of the best hotels we have stayed in. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The suites were awesome! Each suite included two tv's, a kitchenette, and office space.

    The free breakfast was incredible and very delicious as well. We highly reccomend the Sprinhill Suites for it's extrodinary value,cleanliness, and service!

    Good Choice

    from

    Stayed here for business at the convention center. A nice property that was well-maintained. Beds could have been more comfortable. Not the most spacious suites- but tidy and well-equipped. Very good breakfast. Front desk staff were ambivalent and did not inform us when packages arrived and were not helpful with directions or travel arrangements. Personally, we will chose the neighbouring Homewood Suites for the next visit because of the better rooms, afternoon snacks and cheeful front desk staff.

    Very Nice hotel

    from

    Stayed here from Apr 19 - 27, 2005.

    Pros:

    The SHOWER! It has dual heads and the water pressure was great. The water temperature remained even throughout so it was really nice after a long day at the park.

    The Front desk was very nice.

    Our rooms were cleaned promptly every day.

    4 each of bath towels, hand towels, face towels every day, so it was enough for family of 4.

    Free hot breakfast. We had waffles, eggs, sausages, danish, muffins. Kids had Frosted flakes and fruit loops. There were other food items like bagels, bread, and other pastries. Plenty of beverages like milk, orange juice, coffee, etc.

    The cereals were great. They came in individual servings, so we got extras every day and brought them into the park with us. The kids used them as a snack whenever they got hungry and we're in a line and unable to buy food.

    Rooms were clean, no smell like in HI sunspree.

    Coin operated Laundry Facilities. If you need quarters, go to Front desk and manager has rolls of them for you to exchange.

    Plenty of parking. We usually park at the back where you can enter using your room key.

    2 TVs.

    Bathroom sink is outside, so someone can take a shower while the other can brush his teeth. There is also a separate kitchen sink outside with the mini-fridge and the microwave.

    Close to Walmart, 10 minutes away, where we bought our supplies.

    $79 a night, very reasonable for us.

    Will definitely stay here again.

    Cons: (minor things)

    No kitchen table. There is a desk and a chair which Dad used. The rest of us sat on the floor, used the couch cushion for seats and used the coffee table to put our food on, which was okay for us.

    There is only 1 washer/dryer per floor and it's only on certain floors, like 4th and 6th. This was okay for us.

    Unlike in embassy suites, there is no separate bedroom with door, but the room is big enough, so that we were able to watch TV in the living area while the kids were sleeping in the bedroom area.

    Plenty of lighting in the living area but lacking some light in the bedroom area.

    The breakfast is the same every day, so you need to plan and pace yourself so you don't get sick of it.

    Great place to stay

    from

    We stayed here just before the Christmas Holidays. Everything was great, including clean rooms, tasty and ample breakfast, nice staff and most of all affordable price.

    Excellent hotel

The other girl and both babies had their photos done and still this little girl was screaming, so Cinderella got up from her photo area, walked down the red carpet past us, up to the girl and crouched down beside her and started to talk to her, within seconds the tears had gone and a huge smile appeared as she walked hand in hand with Cinderella back to the photo area to have ...
