A very nice choice! A review of Embassy Suites Hotel Orlando - North
We selected this Embassy Suites property versus a bad stay at the Jamaican Court property, and since it had a fully indoor pool. It was too cold for outdoor swimming in January. It is located just off I-4, and was situated next to a lake with public walk around. There was some construction in the area surrounding property, and I would ask for lake view. The lake sits between hotel, and I-4. At first I was nervous since there was a Target job fair being held there, and there were so many people in and around the lobby, and atrium. I checked in , and the front desk manager told me not to worry, they would be leaving by reception time! There were no luggage racks, but he tracked one down, and personally came out to our car, and helped us and escorted us to our room.
Our room was very spacious. The sofa was larger and better quality than at other Embassy Suites in Tampa, and Orlando. The room was much cleaner, and the view of the water was nice. We were on the fifth floor, center, and if you looked down, you saw the rooftop of the entry portion of the building, but hey, it is an urban area. The welcome reception was great. It was in the area that they serve breakfast. The drinks were served in glassware, not plastic cups, and were top quality. They have an excellent restaurant on site, and we ordered room service and would do so again.
Very good. The indoor pool was very nice. We really enjoyed it. They also had a jacuzzi, and so we will stay at this property again, when it is too cold to swim, or when it is so hot in FL, that we want to avoid the whole sunscreen issue with our son! I really liked having two vanity areas. One in the bathroom, and one in the master bedroom. Breakfast was very good! We always get it and return to the room to dine at the in room dining table.
I cannot imagine why anyone would spend the same amount on a standard hotel room, when they can have a suite, welcome reception, with free cocktails, and snacks, free full breakfast, and more with Embassy Suites. But, it does vary between properties. As mentioned above, we had a totally opposite experience at the Jamaican Court (International Drive ) Embassy, so you just never know. This one however is great. We will go back. It is not far from Orlando at all. In my opinion, worth the stay out of the congested International Drive area, but we have yet to try the Convention Center ES....will post that one next time!
