Best staff I have seen!

Great, comfortable stay for a family of four. But the highlight was Vanessa and Orlando (staff) going completely out of the way to retrieve an earring that slipped between the cracks of the elevator into an inaccessible basement area. Not only did Vanessa remember to have someone dig it out, she also organized to be shipped over to our home. Brilliant service. Thank you!

Loved staying here

We have stayed on idrive on a number of occasions and have to say this was the best accommodation we have stayed in to date. We were a family of 4 (2x adults and 2 teenagers) so the 2 bedroom apartment was perfect for us - giving us all the space we needed. It was all very clean and comfortable. The decor was modern and in good condition - and the facilities in the kitchen were more than adequate for our needs (however, we did not cook). The whole complex feels very safe, with security doors on the ground level. Staff were all very friendly and accommodating - and the breakfast was fine, with a good selection.We did not have time to use the pool or the hot tub - and if I had to find one fault, the pool was pretty much always in the shade - which in August may be a blessing, but in December - not so much!Friday night we did get a bit of music noise from the bars over in the 360 complex, which was a little annoying - but not massively - and this was the only night we had heard anything.Overall, we will definitely come back - and would have no hesitation in recommending.

Excellent hotel.

Great hotel, great location and service. Stay without problems. I recommend!Functional kitchen. Good option for families. Breakfast satisfactory. The wi-fi works very well. Package service for a fair price.

Very happy ...only a couple of minor glitches

We are a family of 4, with 2 teenage boys. Layout of the 2 bedroom suite is perfect and we all found the beds and pillows very comfortable. The location is fantastic - the Orlando Eye is just across the road and the hotel is surrounded with numerous restaurant options. We think the location is hard to beat! The daily ‘light clean’ offered by the hotel was satisfactory - it was nice to have the beds made and fresh towels left each day. There are 3 wall dispensers in the showers for shampoo, conditioner and body wash. (I prefer bar soap... so used the bar soap that was intended for the basin. We used the whole bar and there were only bits left...and it was still not replaced. We only had another 2 days to go, so I didn’t say anything to the hotel - but I would have expected the cleaner to see that we needed another little bar of soap. The only other minor niggle was the water pressure. The hotel has put in watersaving shower heads - which is commendable... but very frustrating when trying to wash long thick hair! Instead of a regular 10 min shower, it was taking 25 mins to wash my hair!! 🤪 and the hot water in the basin of master bedroom (315) dribbles. There is literally no pressure... so I started washing my face in the boys bathroom. But apart from a little bar of soap and frustrating water pressure ... it’s a fantastic hotel. Breakfast was ‘okay’ - not amazing, but certainly good. (Especially as it’s complimentary). All the team at Sonesta are very friendly and helpful. Checkin and checkout were easy. We would stay here again - the location makes it a no brainer. :-)

Great location, nice rooms, OK breakfast

I stayed here for 2 nights with my wife, daughter and brother in law. Pros: Location: The hotel is 5 minute walking distance from Orlando Eye and very close to many attractions. Cannot beat this location!Rooms: The room has everything you need (including a kitchen). The full-size refrigerator is a little noisy if you're sleeping in the living room and the AC fan directly blows on the sofa-bed. Pools and SPA: The pool was clean and the size was more than average. The hot SPA also looked really nice although we didn't use it. Staff: The staff were very nice and helpful in every aspect. Cons:Room: The room overlooking the pool and had very little day light. I'd choose a room looking at the Eye (they said there was no availability). Sofa bed was also not comfortable. Breakfast: The breakfast was poor compared to some other hotels in the same price range. Pancakes were probably a day old and I could taste the oil in the fries. Wifi: Wifi reception and speed was great in the room as well as in the lobby. Overall, we liked the hotel and we'd like to stay here again (hopefully in a room on the other side of the hotel)
