Like that I could walk to convention center and the price was reasonable compared to hotels there were closer.
Food was good but menu somewhat limited, had several restaurants within walking distance, which was also helpful and CVS is right next door.
Our family recently celebrated four birthdays at this Hilton Garden Inn. The staff could not have been more accommodating by assigning rooms in very close proximity.
The property itself is beautiful and very well-maintained. Afternoon or evening cookies were a delight.
The first reason I did not give this property an excellent rating is simple. Their bed was as hard as a concrete slab. The pillows were too soft. In other words I did not have a Goldilocks moment with the room. Otherwise the room was fine. But missing a nights sleep made the following day more difficult. Secondly, breakfast was very expensive.
The shuttle to Sea World and Aquatica is extremely handy and saved us parking fees.
I would suggest if you’re planning a trip to any attractions in the Orlando area, give strong consideration to this property, but bring your own pillow.
