Holiday Inn & Suites Across from Universal Orlando
- What's Included
Lovely place but I'm here at 5.20am awake again since 4am because they have piped music going and there's a speaker right outside our room (113). We have said it at the front desk but I think they thought we were mad. Being a light sleeper it's not fun waking most mornings before 5am when on a busy holiday as I'm wrecked by 1pm
Great location: about 10 minutes of not very fast walk to Universal Studios! Free parking, fast free wi-fi, comfortable rooms.There were no breakfast but there is a Friday`s in the adjucent building so there were no problem.
Great location to Universal Studios Theme park. Great pool. Good shuttle system, though the ride from the park a little long as this property is the last stop. Room was large and comfortable for a family of 5. Good value considering the location. Get your shuttle reservations early each day or the day before. Popular times fill up fast, though the walk to the City Walk is only about 15-20 minutes with good sidewalks and crossings to get there. Staff are very helpful if there are any questions about stuff in the area.
Walking distance from universal studio, they also have free shuttle to the universal. Free wifi/internet, free parking, and most important, no resort fee!! This is probably the only one hotel that has such good location but no resort fee.It will be better if they offer free hot breakfast.
Based on my title, you would think my review rating would be lower, however, this hotel is centrally located. Nevertheless, it is important to note that the hotel was old and had no restaurant in the hotel, except Friday's which was absolutely horrendous for breakfast. They sold us when we checked in a "breakfast buffet" that included drinks (coffee, tea or juice) and tip for $13. The "buffet," if you can call it that, was absolutely horrible. I'm not usually very picky, but it was so bad, I asked for a refund in my second day's buffet. I will say the rooms were spacious, but the bathroom was dated and for 2 people, it only had 1 sink. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were good, not great, but good. The hotel was not ready for a group like ours. We waited almost an hour to be checked in. There was only 1 person in the front counter checking the group in. After some of us started complaining because of the lack of front-desk personnel, hotel staff came out with chips and water to calm us down. It was appreciated, but it doesn't take away from not having enough staff to take care of us. Finally another 2 hotel staff members came to help with the check in. Based on our conversation throughout the conference, I didn't find anyone that was part of the conference that was happy with the hotel accommodations. However, I do want to be fair and point out the great service received from Karen at the front desk. She was very good and extremely helpful. When I checked out, she was able to provide the refund that although I had returned the breakfast voucher the day before, it had not been entered in the system. I also forgot my pillow in the room and she arranged for the security to take me back to the room and pick it up from the bed. I also observed her handle a check in as I waited for her, and she was OUTSTANDING!It's unfortunate, because my stay at a Holiday Inn & Suites in San Antonio, TX was so different than my stay here. However, if you want to be able to cross the street and walk to Universal, this is the place for you. Just know that it's an older hotel and I strongly recommend not to buy the breakfast voucher and just have breakfast elsewhere. I think McDonalds, Burger King or Starbucks would have been so much better quality. So based on this statement just imagine how bad it was!
