Hi all, has anyone ever stayed at the Embassy Suites?

We're thinking of staying there on our next visit across the pond so would love to hear any reviews.

Thanks

There's actually two on International Drive probably no more than a mile apart.I've stayed at the Jamaican ct location and I don't have any
negatives about it.The other location on I Drive is just a bit south closer to the convention center.

Thanks both for your replies. We've had a little get together & we have decided to book to stay at the Embassy Suite's by the Convention Centre. We're not going until May 2012 so plenty of time to get excited :)

We've stayed at an Embassy in Fort Lauderdale for a couple of night's before a cruise & enjoyed it, fingers crossed that the Orlando one live's up to our memories!

I have stayed at the Embassy Suites Lake Buena Vista and loved it. The bfst is great and we always pick up chips and dips, cheese etc for the manager's reception each night. It is nice to sit and enjoy a few "free" drinks while the kids swim and just eat junk food for dinner.
the Lake Buena Vista Embassy Suites is just down the street from DTD, not walking distance but only 5 minutes to DTD via car. They do have a bus to the parks, not sure if the others near International Drive do.

We stayed at the convention center one last month. It was fine. Pool is extremely small, breakfast was good, everyone was friendly.

We stayed at this one for our Feb 2011 Universal trip. We only stayed for two nights before switching to a the Royal Pacific Resort but we loved it more then the RPR! The breakfast is awesome as well as the manger's reception. Free drinks, chips, popcorn made my husband's night. We also ate dinner at the hotel and had lunch there the next day. Food was pretty good. The pool is an indoor/outdoor with the outdoor being a little bigger. Hot tub was nice too. We had a room on the Sixth floor which was so cool. We liked being able to visit DTD for a few hours. I was able to shop and DH took the kids on a bus ride to one of the Monorail resorts so they could ride the monorail.

I've also stayed at both and liked each of them fine. Of course, the breakfast is great (how can you lose with made to order omelets and a hot breakfast bar with french toast, etc? :)

Unless it has changed since I was there, the Convention Center location has two pools - one indoor and one out. The Jamaican Court location has one pool that is both indoor and outdoor (a swim through).

Embassy Suites breakfasts are GREAT (as mentioned before), but 6 people may be crowded. You might want to look at the Staybridge Suites on I Drive (or in Lake Buena Vista). They have large 2BR/2BA suites at good rates (check the thread on this board with the Friends and Family rate for really good prices). They do have a hot breakfast, but, of course it doesn't compare with ES!

The Homewood Suites http://homewoodsuites1.hilton.com/en_US/hw/hotel/MCOVSHW-Homewood-Suites-by-Hilton-Lake-Buena-Vista-Orlando-Florida/index.do are right down the road too and they also have two bedroom suites with a pullout sofa in the livingroom area. They are part of the Hilton Group which Embassy Suites is part of. They too have the breakfasts but the manager's reception is only Monday through Thursday, I think.

Do any of the Embassy Suites in Orlando charge a resort fee or/and parking fees?

The one we stayed at here http://www.embassysuiteslbv.com/accommodations.htm Had free parking and no resort fee. Just the taxes.

I've stayed at 2 out of the 3, and none of them did. I doubt seriously that the other one does either.
