A reminder there's more to Disney World than theme park rides and cartoon characters, this is like the nightlife quarter of any big city – only with that special, family-friendly Disney glow. Areas like the Marketplace and West Side offer blues bars, live shows, cinemas, and bars. And there's great food too, whether you fancy hearty Deep South grub or the full fine dining experience.
One of Florida's most popular attractions, SeaWorld Orlando is most famous for the spectacular acrobatics performed by killer whales. You can also see stingrays, dolphins and a host of other beautiful sea creatures up close, catch one of the extravagant live shows, or hop on one of the thrilling rollercoasters. The Orange County Convention Center, one of the biggest in the country, is just a short stroll away.
International Drive is the buzzing tourist strip of Orlando – along it you'll find attractions like the Wet 'n Wild water park, SeaWorld Orlando and, most famously, Universal Orlando. This is your chance to take the starring role in blockbuster movies, thanks to fully immersive 3D rides and film-themed rollercoasters. Afterwards, grab great food or go dancing in the CityWalk entertainment complex, with its array of bars and clubs.
One of the most spectacular resorts in all the United States, Walt Disney World brings out everyone's inner child. Take a walk down picturesque Main Street USA towards the Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom, or explore the scientific wonders of futuristic Epcot, known for the iconic, golf ball-like Spaceship Earth. Enjoy wildlife in the Animal Kingdom and thrilling waterslides in Typhoon Lagoon – it's an adventure from beginning to end.
"Nice hotel, thin walls."
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Oct 22, 2012
The hotel rooms, front desk staff and housekeeping were excellent! Note that the hotel is right up against the motorway and that becomes noticeable once morning traffic starts. One serious drawback is that the walls are thin and we were woken in the early morning hours on more that one occasion by loud neighbors and crying babies. The staff were very understanding and moved us the next day.

The hotel accomodation is good however there were some maintenance issues ie. toilet was blocked and the curtain rod was broken. All in all the stay was good, staff is friendly and helpful and it is ideally positioned for the airport.
