Melia Orlando Suite Hotel at Celebration
- What's Included
We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the amenities and location. Rooms are great size,clean and comfortable. Also has a very good restaurant. A shuttle to the great town of Celebration where hotels visitors can use the fitness center and enjoy the town like a resident.
I stayed at this hotel for one night during the evacuation for Hurricane Matthew. I was left with mostly positive, but still mixed, feelings.First off the bad. This place is marketed as a resort. I say that it is not a resort since most of their advertised amenities, like the golf course and spa, are not actually owned or run by the hotel, nor are they even on hotel property. They're amenities which seem to belong to the community of Celebration, and the hotel happens to share them. Nevertheless, the hotel still charges a "resort fee" for guests staying there. Furthermore, while staying there during the hurricane, when every single thing in Celebration was shut down (including almost all of those amenities and the hotel's pool), they STILL charged the resort fee. It should have been waved that night and I think it's quite tacky that they didn't. They also advertise as pet friendly. They are not pet friendly. They have multiple restrictions on the number and type of pet you can bring, plus they charge a very substantial non-refundable pet fee. During the hurricane they "reduced" the price of the pet fee from something absolutely absurd (I don't remember what it was, but it was higher than even the price I had paid to stay there myself) to "only" $75. Not that it would have mattered for me anyway, because they don't allow cats. Only dogs. So, again, during the hurricane as I'm evacuating and already stressed out, I had to take the additional step of finding shelter for my cat. This would have been fine if I had known about it ahead of time (I just wouldn't have booked here), but I didn't know because I booked on Hotwire where they are listed as being "pet friendly". I assumed the hotel has not updated their listing on Hotwire since their policy changed. So this, along with the lame resort fee (and lame resort itself), left a really bad first impression.On the other hand, the hotel itself is very nice. My room was fantastic! Somehow I lucked out and got on the top floor which has super tall ceilings and that makes the already large hotel room seem even bigger. The decor is modern and tasteful without a lot of tacky "frou-frou" junk all over the place. There was plenty of parking close to the entrance. My room came stocked with lots of good coffee, tea, and little snacks (some sort of tiny little tea cookies which were amazing). The hotel was super clean. I don't think I could have found dust in my room if I tried. As someone that suffers from allergies, I especially appreciate that they don't use carpet on their floor. Carpet traps dust and can get so nasty in hotels with heavy use. The kitchen area was large and well stocked with plates, cooking pans, and flatware. I was only there for one night, but the fridge is full sized and so it would be perfect for vacationing families spending several nights there. Overall, if you asked my what my ideal hotel room would look like, it would probably be very similar to this one. The TV was kinda small in the living room. I guess that's the one knit-picky thing I could say, but I don't really care about TV that much so it doesn't matter to me. I also liked that the hotel is far enough away from the busy road that noise from the street is not a concern.I did not eat at the restaurant while I was there, but I did hit up the coffee bar downstairs in the morning. It was really good and reasonably priced. The breakfast looked good, but I'm not a breakfast person, so I skipped it. The staff were also friendly, helpful, and very quick. Despite being fully booked the night I stayed there, my room was very quiet all night. Wi-fi is "free" (it's actually included in the resort fee, so it's not really free) and you can also download free magazines and newspapers on your laptop or tablet off their media app while at the hotel. Overall, the resort fee and pet policy are lame and they deserve to have a point deducted for that. However, they redeem themselves by offering an excellent hotel experience beyond that. This is probably the best hotel I've stayed at in Orlando. I'm sure you could drop hundreds of dollars for a single night and go stay at the Ritz or Waldorf-Astoria and get a fancier room, but among hotels competing in the same price range, this one is easily the best I've seen in the Orlando area.
We had a great time. The hotel was excellent . The breakfast was great I recommend to purchase the bed and breakfast. They just put pizza on the restaurant's menu the kids loved them. They eat pizza everyday. I will definitely go back to this hotel. Its a great hotel for families.
Wonderful 2 bedroom suite! It was definitely like your own 2 bedroom condo with a kitchen, living room and our corner suite had 2 balconies. Our 2 kids shared a bedroom with 2 beds and my wife and I had the other bedroom with a king bed. It was also great knowing each day someone was tidying up your suite and making your beds. The suites were very clean and well kept. We enjoyed the full breakfast buffet each morning in the nicely decorated restaurant which overlooks the pool area. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful as well. It was so convenient being so close to the Disney parks. We had our own car but it was also nice to know the hotel offered shuttles to and from the parks. I would definitely make it a point to stay at the Melia Orlando Suite Hotel again and highly recommend it.
Spacy rooms but poorly decorated (just not to say there is no decoration at all). Rude staff at front desk and not really willing to help. Breakfast buffet below average and very limited selection. Worn out towels and very basic furniture. Not worth for the money.
