Embassy Suites on International Drive in Orlando

We've just spent a week in Orlando, FL. We've stayed at the Embassy Suites Hotel on International Drive. The location is not bad, close to public transportation and restaurants. You can take a I-RIDE to go south/north along the International Drive and get to SeaWorld/Aquatica easily. The hotel provides free passes for the I-RIDE. There is also a shuttle bus that goes to Disney's Epcot in the morning and picks you up in the evening. This is all free of charge if a little bit inflexible as far as departure/arrival times go. The hotel itself doesn't deserve 3 stars. We've liked the very polite and helpful concierge staff, house keeping staff that did their job well, most of the staff in the breakfast serving area (although some had a bad attitute and were very slow cleaning tables#. There is a breakfast served daily #included in price#, but if you happened to come close to the end of serving hours the staff would close the hot breakfast station right in front of your nose #even if you were already waiting there in a line up) and they would take all food away even when people were still inside trying to grab some toast or milk. Very unpleasant. Our suite smelled terrible - like a damp basement - all our clothes started smelling like it as well. The upholstery on the furniture and the carpet were full of stains, the bathroom was run down, in dire need of renovation. We've even seen some coacroach in the bathroom.We will definitely never stay there again.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

We would definitely rent a car next time - gives you more flexibility to move around and from park to park (although there is a free transportation to Epcot and in between parks). It's also easier if you want to save money on food because there are no grocery stores on the International Dr. close to hotels.

Great room, friendly staff

My husband & I decided to get away from the kids and do some shopping. We chose this hotel because it was close to the outlet malls and had a hot tub. It was a great choice - the room was pleasant and had everything we needed, the bed was very comfortable, and we enjoyed the manager's reception with complimentary drinks (the snacks, described as "light," were exactly as advertised, but it's hard to complain about free booze). The hot tub was great and the pool area was attractive.

The location was great!...steps away from many restaurants, attractions and the Convention Center. The hotel staff was exceptional and very accommodating especially the morning restaurant, late afternoon front desk and the gift shop staff. The only complaint I had was the telephone in our suite wasn't working properly for incoming calls only and 2 out the 4 elevators were out of service at times during our week long stay.

Amazing weekend getaway

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was on the sixth floor and had a beautiful view! The breakfast is definitely something you should try before you head out for the day.
