Good overall hitel

Arrived home today from a ten night stay at Sonesta Suites. We had a two bedroom apartment. We were happy with the standard of the room. All amenities that we needed were available. Rooms and beds were very comfortable; just what was needed after walking around the parks all day. The pool is in the center of the courtyard and is heated. Small however suitable for a quick dip at the end of the day. Breakfast was included, I could only explain this as being like a school canteen. Not a great variety of choice to be honest and I didn't rate this very much. The ladies at reception and guest relations were all very helpful. The hotel is in a perfect location on international drive. Literally opposite the Eye, and not far from both Disney and universal. A shuttle bus is provided a couple of times a day to both parks. A taxi to universal cost about $8-10, and Disney $30+. I rated the hotel 4* however I don't give this rating based on what I would usually expect from a relaxing holiday hotel where I would expect luxury. I give that based on all you need for a Orlando experience as mentioned above, good location, comfortable rooms etc etc this ticks all of those boxes.

Perfect location and apartment

This was the first time we had stayed on I-Drive having always stayed at Disney before.Although we didn't drive the location proved to be ideal as being right opposite the Orlando Eye was ideally situated for easy access to Universal, SeaWorld and Disney as well as numerous shops, bars and restaurants. Disney and Universal were both able to be reached via the free transport laid on at convenient times. Seaworld and Universal also being a short taxi ride away with the I trolley and Lynx buses passing right outside the apartments. Our first impression of the apartments was that it provided everything that you would require. The rooms were very clean and the beds very comfortable. The pull out bed however I would say is not ideal for an Adult sleeping for more than 2 or 3 nights. The Apartments themselves are very spacious and have all the facilities you would require, although no kettle. The Sonesta staff couldn't have been friendlier and any request was not too much trouble. Often if we required something there was a follow up phone call just to check that everything was ok which was a nice touch. The Breakfast we found to be excellent and had more than enough choices to suit. There was a small Laundry which proved to be very handy to freshen your clothes up. The Pool area was fairly small although there was never a problem with sunbeds and there was also a nice hot tub to soak your weary limbs in after a long day at one of the parks.Overall we would have no hesitation on returning to the Sonesta and would recommend it to others that wish to stay on I drive.

Wonderful hotel

On arrive we were greeted by a lovely guy who checked us in and explained things . All of the reception staff were helpful and polite. We were allocated a room on the four floor with a pool view. The room was fabulous, clean spacious modern. Towels were soft and fluffy. Breakfast was a, bonus it included hot items as well as bagels, muffins, cakes and fresh fruit. The pool area was lovely we could always find a bed to relax on when we had a day off the parks. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again when we return

Spacious suites

We Stayed 5 nights here as a family of 5 and had a lovely clean large 2 bedroom suite which had plenty room for all of us. We were on the 5th floor and it was lovely and quiet. Breakfast was a good bonus and we all always found something to eat, there was always cereal, toast, pastries, fruit, yoghurt and a couple of hot items. We only used the shuttle once to Disney and it was so full, not enough room for everyone we decided to get a taxi back. But would definitely recommend and would stay again.
