A friend and I stayed here on a trip to visit Universal Studios. We loved this hotel and staff! The rooms are equipped with everything you would need for a trip. Breakfast has a ton of options and there is a reception in the evening. There is a grocery store across the street for anything you would need during your stay. Universal Studios is a short Lyft ride away.
The only part I was not a fan of was the timeshare pitch that we were given after checking in.
I stayed at this hotel for a week during a conference in Orlando. The price was reasonable, and the room was pretty big, with bedroom and living room and mini-kitchen. Breakfast buffet was included.
As a business traveller, I would prefer a more modern hotel with a gym. However, as a family with young children, this hotel could be a good choice.
