Aging accommodations

Stay was good. Room and facility is showing age, so not luxurious, but clean, roomy and decent. Unfortunately the hotel filled up while we were there so they were out of peanut butter for 3-4 days, breakfast lines were exceptionally long,, and the manager closed the omelet & meat line promptly on the minute even though some had gathered other food for the family so as to gather it before closing and then come back to wait in line. This happened more than once, and was a bit unfriendly.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Universal studios - don't take the shuttle, drive over to get there when the park opens or you'll stand in lines all day long. Also, buy tickets at the hotel. The savings will more than cover the cost of parking at Universal.

Best Hotel in Orlando

This is the best hotel in Orlando for visiting Indian people. Indian restaurants within walking distance and free breakfast and free shuttle to the attractions, it does not get any better.

thuggish staff

The rooms were big, but not that clean. The breakfast was barely passable as food and the staff could care less about your comfort. I tried to use a bell hop cart to move my luggage when I was accosted by the Bell bop (who by the way stands around and does not do anything to help the guests). This thug bell hop grabbed a cart out of my hands and only said "I need this." He never apologized and the front desk staff just stood by and never said a word. When I went to complain to the manager, I was told that there wasn't one until the afternoon. This hotel is poorly run by employees who don't care about the guests. Stay somewhere else where hospitality actually means something.

Pleasant surprise

We went here for a anniversary getaway and the staff was fantastic, especially Braxley at the front desk. She made sure our room location was great and that we felt welcome! Everyone else we met were also very friendly and very accommodating. The manager's reception and fresh made breakfast were a great surprise and the location on IDrive is perfect for the parks or convention center. We will return :).

Family get away

We were a little disappointed that WIFI was not included in the amenities. We paid half the price of this hotel some where else and it was included. Such a little thing to charge for in this day. Also a little inconvenient when we were trying to check in for our flight the next day. The rest of our stay was wonderful. Good breakfast and reception. They were also very kind and let us check out later.

Lots of dining within a very short drive or walk if you are brave. It was very congested in Orlando d/t road construction and people. We managed to find our way around.

Putting on the "Ritz" at Embassy Suites...

The location is convenient and the hotel very nice. The most noteworthy feature is the quality and generous quantity of the complimentary food and beverage provided each morning and evening in the lobby atrium area. It's a great value for families!

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.

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.
