I love this place. I know the beds aren't the new soft Marriott beds but the staff here is great and if you have a long stay away from home it's a great spot to unpack your big ass bag and get comfy.
The Pool and hot tub are kept nice and clean and I even swim in the winter. The workout room is usually empty, I always seem to have it all to myself in the morning. Breakfast is included and during the week they have a social hour with enough food to count as dinner. They bar-b-que burgers, chili, deli sandwiches etc. They even have wine and some nice fresh hot cookies for your sweet tooth.
If you prefer to cook for yourself you'll find everything you need in your fully equipped kitchen. They'll shop for whatever you want or you can stop at the grocery store about a mile down the road.
The neighborhood is filled with chain restaurants but you can find some local places up on Alafaya.
Also there's great access to the downtown areas of Orlando as well as the airport.

Everything was right here and it made me feel better while on the road. The morning breakfast was home cooked and not just stale muffins and biscuits like some other places. On Wednesday night the hotel put out an informal dinner for a "social hour". There's a lounge off of the dining room with another television and two terminals for browsing the web or checking e-mail.
The room was really clean and well kept. Quiet...no odors and not off a road or by a hospital. There's a kitchenette there if you want to cook instead of going out. Everyone did such a good job.

i love marriott! i've stayed in this hotel before on past trips to orlando, and i was reminded why i came back.
no, it's not super close to the parks, but a hop on the highway gets you there in no time. this hotel is so clean! the check-in staff was very friendly and the general manager, ms. ramirez, went out of her way to make us feel at home. also, free breakfast is offered and there's lots to choose from-- coffee, juice, bagels, waffles, eggs, sausage, cottage cheese, fruits & biscuits.
there are also lots of places to eat nearby....from chipotle to ihop to azteca mexican cuisine...
aside from the little boy that suggested i eat poison, it was a perfect stay!
oh! and the best part of it all- the beds! i don't know what brand they use, but marriott has THE best beds and pillows. i slept so soundly and woke up so rested. i wish i slept like this at home!

First, let me caution you about jumping to conclusions from a single experience, but here it is -- the hotel rooms that my wife and her relatives had were uniformly dirty. Two of the rooms had to be switched for other rooms due to soiled linen and, in one case, a used bandage on top of the sheets. The other had blood on the pillow case and sheets (just a couple of spots - not a Godfather story).
The hotel manager didn't seem too concerned. He said we were even because we didn't clean up the breakfast area after we ate dinner there. Even?? If your housekeeping department is doing a poor job, you need to be at least a little worried.
To be fair, there was little else wrong with the hotel, but sanitary rooms are kind of fundamental, hence the single star.

I love Marriott hotels! If there's one where I'm traveling to I'll stay there. Marriott never let's me down.
I've been to this Marriott a ton of times - & the difference between this Marriott than any other I've been to is it makes me feel so welcomed.
Free Breakfast & let me tell you the breakfast rocks!!!! It's different & delicious! The front desk is very helpful with directions, activities to do, where to eat, checking in and out. Never a bad moment! The General Manager Janisse is always improving the staff & accommodations. Cannot get better than her & JP!!

I stayed 2 nites here. The front desk ladies were very accommodating and pleasant. The suite was fabulous ... Everything was top shelf. The hotel was clean and updated. Breakfast was included and there were many options. Being a vegetarian .. Sometimes it's an all meat choices. Everything was very well presented and prepared. Top shelf from the front desk to the housekeeping!!

The hotel was fine. Our rooms were clean.
This review is based on my staff experience only, which was quite shocking.
We are traveling for a wedding and had an issue with a credit card. My father very generously offered to pay for our 4 night stay so I asked the front desk person what we had to do to pay with a card over the phone or via the Internet, whatever is easier.
He told me to email a picture of the front and back of the card along with ID to a GMAIL email address. Yes, this is a Mariott branded hotel...and this guy wants me to send credit card details to a Gmail address. No, I think not.
I call the 800 number and of course the person tells me this is against their policy, blah blah blah. Well duh. I don't want to get the guy in trouble, I just want to pay my bill. I make it clear that it's probably the manager that's directed this employee to do this and asked about other options. The person on the phone tells me the only way would be to fax a copy of the card to the front desk clerk. Honestly, after I was asked to submit my card to a Gmail address I don't want to even fax it anywhere. Hello scary.
This is my only option so I get the fax form filled out and have it sent to the front desk. This is where the shit hits the fan.
I get a call telling me that the paperwork I had faxed "wouldn't work". I immediately go down to the front desk and Raheem tells me that "Since I got Mariott involved this paper won't work". My father had put MY name on the form, instead of the name of the reservation (my long term girlfriend). He doesn't say "since the paper is filled out wrong this won't work". He says "since you got Mariott involved this won't work". He then proceeds to tell me that "now they will be watched by Mariott for PCI Compliance." I said well maybe you should be watched be watched since you're asking for cards at a GMAIL ADDRESS! I ask for the paper so I can put the right name. Nope, he won't give it to me..when an hour before hand he told me *I* could fill out the paperwork. I asked to add my name to the reservation since I was obviously staying there. He would not help me.
Raheem wanted to punish me for asking corporate Mariott a question, which was way out of line in his book. I had to have a new paper faxed in because he had to have a little power trip. Now I'm afraid to even leave the hotel, who knows what might happen.

So I've had the pleasure of staying at this location a few times & the service is outstanding! Customer service is always on point & with excellent service no matter the time for both check-in & check-out! With this app you also get to enjoy a free bottle water or soda....thanks!
The hotel has been modernized & looks fabulous! Rooms are Clean, spacious & include small kitchen, small living, comfy lush beds, & nice bathrooms w/ huge vanity area for grooming ;) Everything is kept in pristine condition, which I actually have found to be true of all Marriott hotels, I've stayed in.
This particular hotel includes meals w/ your stay which I absolutely love!!! I mostly stay on weekends so I enjoy their breakfast but if u stay during the week you enjoy breakfast & dinner. Most hotels charge extra for this luxury or only offer dessert options for breakfast. This one offers a variety of hot foods like, eggs, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal etc. Again staff in this area as well are very nice, friendly & ensuring food is stocked, kept clean, & available to meet ur needs.
To summarize everything is perfect from check-in, the price, service, sleep, breakfast, to check-out, in one word~Fabulous!!! General manager Janisse Ramirez & staff at this location make your stay 5 stars!
