We really appreciated Beverly, the inn keeper She was attentive to detail, makes an awesome breakfast and is a very interesting person to get to know Our room was spotless and we had everything we needed for an enjoyable weekend

The front porch overlooks the lake and we enjoyed our morning coffee here while we waited for breakfast The house has beautiful wood everywhere and feels very inviting Our daughter lives in Winter Park and we were only 16 minutes away from a lot of hustle and bustle but due to the surrounding acreage and it’s wildlife designation we felt like we were in the forest We highly recommend staying here and plan to go back Thank you Beverly

Elizabeth Tosh

We loved Thurston House! Beautiful, well kept historic home that was very comfortable Beverly is a wonderful accommodating host and the breakfast was fantastic The house is very charming, clean and comfortable

Close to lots of good food and convenient for area attractions as well We’ll be returning A very special place that is a wonderful option compared to chain hotels in the area

Marilda Nunes

We loved our staying in this beautiful and historic property, every corner has attention to details We need more days here to enjoy every room of the house The little delicious cookies at reception to classical music for breakfast is such nice touch

Beverly you are a wonderful caretaker and you keep this place with so much care and love Breakfast was amazing, next level, something not to be missed We will be back and we will recommend to stay here to anyone we know Thank you Bervely!

Hotel is very nice, the staff, valet, all the way down to security are unmatched!! The room had a contemporary feel and very comfortable The view from the room was amazing as well Absolutely loved the sky bar!! Food and drinks were amazing!!

it was just overall a very pleasant stay! I didn’t want to leave!! Although valet parking was a lot, it was great to just be able to walk downstairs and my car already waiting on me Really loved this place!!

Berta B

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the restaurant/bar located at the AC hotel’s rooftop The cocktails were tasty (great presentation), food was delicious & the property was elegant/stylish The cocktail lounge had a relaxed yet chic ambiance – upscale yet comfortable

We sat indoors during this visit and had a great time, the service/staff was pleasant and accommodating Outdoor bar, seating & lounge areas also available with an absolutely breathtaking view I 100% recommend & will definitely be back

Nathan Cohen

The accommodations are extremely nice Rooms are quite nice However, the service does not match the property

The best thing this property has going for itself is the AC SkyBar (food and drinks were very good) Brian was a great bartender I unfortunately experienced situations with the charges to my credit card for incidentals, no availability for room service and as a ambassador elite , on my last night of stay, the air went out and the thermostat along with some of the lighting in my suite on the top floor did not work I was told that there was no engineering staff available to assist and I will get a call the following morning at 10 AM No call was ever received To my understanding, this property is just over a year old I would think that the services here would be better as one of the Premier downtown properties and not to mention it’s Marriott My hopes are about the services here will improve as this property has the potential to be an amazing experience

To begin, this is a lovely, functional hotel for either a short or long-term stay It’s truly a hidden gem at a reasonable price point I love the functional wall in the Home2 Suites

The kitchen is fully equipped, including 3/4 fridge with large freezer, dishwasher, garbage disposal and microwave, as well as plates, bowls, glasses and cutlery At this Home2 Suites, the rooms seem to maximize storage in unexpected, creative ways In the queen suite there are 2 desk surfaces, a rolling dining table, nesting side tables and nearly endless storageWhat makes this hotel truly special, in my experience, is the staff The young lady working the front last night went out of her way for us twice, quickly and with a smile I wish I had gotten her name! This morning, at 3:40am, my mom was getting ready to grab her early flight, and I asked the young lady working if there was a way to get something for her to eat Again, I was facing someone who was attentive, friendly, thoughtful and happy She ran around the back grabbing fruit and water I figure anybody in the service industry who is able to maintain that kind of attitude at 3:40 in the morning is destined for sainthood Her name was Genesis Both women embodied a level of customer service that should be the goal of every person in customer service, and you cannot maintain that without having a good employer Truly, it makes this hotel special

Jekerri Tucker

This hotel is AMAZING!!! Me & my Husband went to stay here on our honeymoon because we just recently married This hotel welcomed us with opened arms They even gave us a small gift as well

They greeted us every morning & breakfast was fantastic!!! The hotel was always cleaned when we came in from adventuring They are also were very helpful when we didn’t know how to work the shades in the room We will definitely be staying here again when we come back to Orlando If you want a nice breakfast, clean rooms, and a welcoming staff I would definitely recommend this place! Thanks you guys for a wonderful stay, until next time

Angel Felix

I have been staying in Marriotts all my life and this was my first experience staying at a HiltonLet me tell you, IT WAS AWESOME!!!This place has everything you normally would have at Home like a fridge, microwave, etcThe best part for me was the nice clean BED! I’ve never slept so good! I couldn’t wake up in the morning

I don’t know if it was the comforters or the mattress, but I got a well needed rest

(I really appreciate the stairwell being dust and stain free) If you like to walk, the location is not far from the Amway Center (about 25 minutes) If you are in the area for medical attention the location is perfect for one of Orlando Medical’s facility

Xavier Medina

This Inn was very cozy and clean The entrance is kind of tucked away if you’re coming from Lake Eola next door We were greeted with smiles and the lobby smelled so clean

Coffee and infused water available right there Our room was a single queen with a balcony Room was a little small, but none the less comfortable Bed is nice and soft Bathroom was clean and the walk in shower was spacious Balcony is shared, separated by white curtains The view outside wasn’t amazing, but for just sitting outside enjoying the weather it’s nice My only complaint was that our TV wasn’t workingThere is an open balcony in the main hallway in the 2nd floor with comfy chairs Nice area to just catch some sun and relax At night they have soft lights around the areaOverall it’s a nice stay and would recommend itAlso sits above a bar!

Garret Stewart

Probably one of my favorite hotels I’ve ever stayed in Super clean Staff was really friendly

We had the King balcony room it was very spacious and the bathroom was to die for 😍 The bathtub was HUGE! Also in a great location right next to a beautiful park and in walking distance to a ton of good food Next time I’m in Orlando I’ll definitely be staying here

Erika Villaruel

YouTube Inspired -Chaotic Calm

My dauthers and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here It was by far, one of our best hotel experiences in Orlando From check-in, to surprising my girls with the delicious breakfast in the morning

Our room was so nice, and the beds delightfully comfortable Located so close to downtown, it gave us a taste of downtown living 10/10 would recommend, and we will definitely come back again

Desiree Neal

Old property with renovations and soft touches of contemporary decor It’s downtown inner city so with that being said comes homelessness and stranglers… doesn’t bother me but might bother you Location is immediately off I-4 for a bit of convenience

Valet or self parking($18) and has a shuttle service that takes you 3mi of the property Staff interaction was pleasant and informative My stay came with breakfast I was supposed to have a dbl Queen however the 3rd party sent it to the hotel as king room The front desk employee was able to make a reasonable adjustment and get me a room with a pull out sofa, Thanks front desk! The room was fresh but did have smudges on the wall, sofa cushions were worn and slouchy, the packaged cups placed with the ice bin had holes in the plastic and were torn 🤔 which made me question safety/cleanliness/sanitary but I’m just go pray about it and drink the alcohol hoping that kills whatever may have got in the cup

Cinda Clark

Room was nice but

negatives were coffee machine was broken, shower water temp was either scalding hot or cold no in-between, the lighting was terrible no light near door where only full length mirror is One of the lamps had an light bulb out that I pulled out so room service would know The mini fridge worked but the exterior so hot that i left cabinet door it was housed in open to try to cool it off Kept the drinks cold though The restaurant is NOT open for lunch even though advertised it is Positives was beds comfortable, rooms was clean and was cold

As the owner of Corner House Photography, I can attest to the incredible work that goes into the creation of our couples’ vision for their big day The Alfond Inn truly takes their ideas and turns it into a realityOn your wedding day, you can expect to be in a gorgeous suite – many of our brides have incredible balcony views as well

Formal portraits can be completed both inside and outside, with the staff being incredibly accommodating in letting us roam the property for that ‘perfect backdrop’Most of our couples opt for an outdoor ceremony on the lawn, and I just love the architectural backdrop of the building behind that can be seen in our photos Reception space is just to die for – with gorgeous lighting, tablescapes, and a killer dance floorCorner House Photography truly cannot recommend this venue enough!

Tommy Johnson

Stayed there mid-week July 6-8 All around nice place to stay in Winter Park Very fitting

Only issue was they had a A/C issue in the bar restaurant, but were addressingEveryone was friendly but what stood out to go from a 4 to a 5 was their valets They were friendly, prompt, and when I brought my elderly mother to stay in a my room for some of the day, they were quick to assist with putting her wheelchair in the car, and patient as we moved here in and out of the entrance Just little things like that make big differences

Anita Gil

Oh goodness! We had several issues!1) We requested a play pen for our daughter when we checked in at 3pm We brought it up to not only the valet gentleman but also the front desk womanBy 5 we had not received it yet so we requested again

Still Nothing but the same response: “ok, we will work on it for you Then after our event concluded we asked for an update only to find out that there were no more available-even though we requested it 10hrs earlier2) Food was decent but not worth the price that was requested3) Air in our room was poor and not cooling efficiently4) Our fridge was not cooling the way it should be I am a nursing mother and had breast milk in the fridge It was just at the required temperature The employee just unplugged it in and out Did not even offer us a new fridge5!! Our smoke alarm went off 4 times for zero reason! And the employee arrived 3hrs after the fact to check it!

This is an older Double tree that is in need of a renovation The spa rooms have had the bathrooms updated some what with a shower with a nice sliding glass door and shower head, but the rooms are a little on the small side and the beds are very soft They have a nice air purifier in the spa rooms as well

But found the room to be very warm, even though the temp was set to 70 degsThe bar area is easy to get to and the restaurant is not bad The workout room is very nice for a hotel and they have a large pool out back but the pool for some reason is not the invitingWould I stay here again, yes, but I would prefer the Hampton Inn and suites if you are a Hilton member as it is near by and rooms are a little nicer and the pool is a lot more inviting as well

Michael Krieger

I stay with Hilton Property hotels often This hotel was convenient for business needs and had many food options available nearby Breakfast seemed expensive, my room only had 2 clothes hangers, no mini fridge, and no water bottles offered at check-in (I have member status)

Overall a nice stay and they were gracious enough to extend checkout time by 1 HR so that I could work in my room up until the time that I needed to go to the airport

Emily Hathcock

When I first arrived I had high hopes for this hotel I checked reviews, it was in a good location ( close to the school and plenty to eat and shop around the area) and the lobby was very nice However, for the price, the room had no microwave or a mini fridge

It had an old small coffee maker only A little disappointed as I had some small snacks I would have liked to have refrigerated The A/C was loud and the room had a musty smell I could live with that – but the shower wall had long black hair all over it and in the morning I woke up to a roach scurrying across the room ! The blow dryer was encrusted with fingerprints and someone’s hair product I couldn’t even use it The roach and dirty bathroom is what really made this stay ruined – also didn’t offer continental breakfast, and without a way to store your own food in the room it seemed a little much

If I were the owner of the Hilton brand, I would yank my name off this building I stayed 2 nights at 269/per night When I arrived, the valet situation was a cluster

It appeared to be a one-way drive PACKED with parked cars, I didn’t know what to do I had a lot of bags to unload and there was no luggage cart The valet explained that they were all taken and suggested that I stop the elevator on every floor to look for a cart that someone had ditched I made two trips to fourteenth floor to get everything inChecking in, I was the only guest at the front desk, and the tall man would not even acknowledge me He seemed super stressed out The lady offered to help me instead Turns out the tall guy is the manager Now this is all making senseOnce I got in the room, I realized the toilet was clogged, and the bed-side light was flickering like an insane asylum I called the front desk to ask for a room with a working toilet and lights, but they did nothing about it The young man who works late acted like he was so aggravated that I called the front desk to ask for a wake up call He was also rude when I asked if it was too late to get food from restaurantI called down to the valet at 615am to pull up my car and when I got down there, they had ignored my request, which me late for a work event I was away for 17 hours, and since I didn’t have time to hassle with room request, I decided to ignore the issues My room was untouched, nobody serviced it, cleaned it, no coffee Which forced me to buy a $5 black coffee downstairs at Starbucks because there was no other optionThe manager at the front desk should have been my first indication that this place is a circus Between the sloppy valet, unkempt rooms, and RUDE men working the front desk, This place needs new management

Kenny Tudor

The room weren’t great The air conditioner ran constantly you couldn’t adjust the temperature so we had to turn it off so we didn’t freeze to death The room had a musty smell to it

There is a place to eat in the lobby but I wouldn’t call it a restaurant it was overpriced The location was convenient they don’t tell you on the booking sites you have to pay additional for parking

Sophia Vedell

This was one of the worse hotels I’ve ever stayed in in my whole entire life Parking was horrible one way in pretty much one way out Got in my room filthy had a washcloth that someone had used had lipstick or blood I don’t know which one went and talked to the housekeeper she said she didn’t speak English so she really couldn’t help me

Really foul smell carpet was dirty really need to be renovated Horrible experience never again!! Valet worker smell completely like he just came out of the room and was smoking weed !!

Ty Reed

I’m not sure if it was because I spent the day at Disney, or if it was because I wasn’t feeling great

but by the time I got to this room, wowprobably one of the most comfortable beds I’ve slept in Even the next day, my son and I were blown away at how good the sheets felt and how neither of us wanted to get out of these beds Front desk was very friendly when I showed up I booked two rooms and they got my other rooms guests booked and into their rooms hours before I showed up even though I forgot to call ahead and say I wouldn’t be with them checking in Made the process easy Breakfast was standard hotel breakfastnothing to write home about, but good enough to start a road trip on Rooms decor was really nice here I don’t have anything negative to say about that The room I picked was just a standard with two queens, but was on the small side with a pretty poor excuse for a window So based on thatthe price was a little steep But not being familiar with the area probably on par with others Only thing that dropped me from 5 stars was cost and size of room for that cost There are plenty of places to eat right around the corner too

Adam Sechrest

This is a great hotel We were able to rent a suite room for the price of single rooms at other nearby hotels The room was clean and relatively modern

It had a separate living/kitchen area, and a separate bedroom with 2 queen beds The staff was friendly, the bathroom clean, the water hot The continental breakfast was great There are vending machines on each floor Overall, we were pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel was Would recommend

Chris Bruening

The room is fine and clean, but certain rooms share a door with another room and there is absolutely NO soundproofing between those rooms You can literally see through the large gap at the bottom (photo attached) I asked the front desk to switch rooms because I could clearly hear every word spoken by my room neighbors (they were speaking at a normal volume and weren’t even yelling), and I was told that every single room in this hotel has a door with another room

I know this can’t be true and it is confirmed by the other attached photo, so I’m unsure why I was told this Only four rooms per floor have a connecting door to another room Unfortunately, I was moved to one of the only other rooms with an adjoining door! Fortunately, I don’t think anyone is currently staying in the connecting room, so I’m hoping that holds true for the rest of my trip I currently have a towel shoved under the gaping door hole as a precaution anyway

Make sure to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any resort This site will compare hundreds of booking websites and usually will have prices a lot cheaper compared to others! Thank me later! This place is one of the most well known in this area

I’ve been staying here for a very long time If you decide to stay here you definitely won’t be let downI was extremely satisfied with the hotel the rooms and the service It is located very close to the airport and they do have shuttle service to and from the airport The pool area has a gray bar as well as the lobby, very quiet and peaceful A lake in the back is also a nice addition I would definitely stay here again

K Tempest Bradford

I used to love this hotel! I looked forward to staying there every year for a conference But now it’s certainly not what it used to be and they’re still charging high pricesThere’s no room service

It’s a pandemic If you don’t have the staff to do both restaurants and room service, do room service!The room decor is awfulThe showers are awful There’s only one tiny metal shelf to put things on and if you try to do so the things will slip right off because it’s poorly designed The water is sporadic, you can’t get the temperature you want, and the floors are slipperyMy friend ordered gluten free pizza and then had a medical event because they either didn’t clean before making hers and it was cross contaminated or they used regular flourThey’ve taken away all breakfast options except for their expensive buffet Even the coffee shop in there doesn’t have pastries, sandwiches, etc They barely had enough coffeeI understand that the pandemic has forced major changes on hotels, but it doesn’t feel like this Marriott is making decisions based on what will keep most people safe They charge Marriott prices for a Raddison experience and that’s not okay

Madison Obryan

Very disappointed in the staff member Monica – the assistant manager at the front desk She advised us at 6:30 am when we checked breakfast was included and that it would open in 30 minutes even going into detail how they would make us omelettes in front of us I only needed the room due to a flight delay for 6 hours

I paid nearly $200 for a room The room was nice When we went to breakfast we were turned away and when speaking with the front desk we were told we had to wait until she was out of a meeting and when she approached us she became very defensive and stating she didn’t state this which both of us heard clear as day and repeatedly talked about This was our first Marriott and this wasn’t a good impression We were then told we could be taken to a restaurant near by and when we said yes they advice us the shuttle wasn’t even available and it was at the airport We chose to opt out to avoid missing the shuttle to return to the airport I didn’t appreciate the staffs tone or the misinformation I will not return to this location because of this first impression

Modern rooms and comfortable beds! The room was very clean and had a really great shower I can tell housekeeping really keeps the place clean The bed was comfortable and the sheets were soft

Self parking was $15 per night and the garage was very convenient Only drawback was the checkout process, I got 4 emails from 9-10am about checking out of my room Checkout is at 11am so I understand the need to check out in a timely manner but the incessant emails about checking out before 11 were a little pushy The employees were really friendly though!

We visited from San Diego this past weekend and was our first time in Orlando We don’t know the area so I am not sure if it’s situated in a good location, but it worked just fine for us since we had to travel to Sanford on Saturday and then the Kennedy Space Center on Sunday, so I guess it was as good as it gotWe arrived at 11pm and were really thirsty, the hotel has complementary water in the room (2 regular size bottles) and extra bottles for $2

00, we needed a little more than just a few bottles Conveniently there are two 7 elevens within 8 minute walk in both directions on Orange (we didn’t have a car) where we got water and snacksLiked:-Staff is very polite-The room is very spacious and very clean, nicely modernized and overall very enjoyable-Same with the bathroom, very nice, clean, and it seems like it just got renovated not long ago-Their coffee espresso machine in the room was a life saver-Nice closet where you find an iron, board, and even an umbrella!- Big mirrorsRoom for improvement:-They use a tablet in-room where you can order complimentary items such as more coffee, towels, etc (But no water) I used it twice, the second time they did not bring the items we requested until we asked the front desk-The bed is comfortable but the pillows were disappointing, enough to make it to this list-One night it got really noisy, the bar was very close to our room and we could hear the laughter and everything going on-I could hear guest in other rooms having conversations at midnight :(There is a parking structure right next to the Hotel and Tavern, but I am not sure how that works We had dinner at the tavern one night and the waiter asked if we needed our parking ticket validated, so I assume it’s free parking for hotel guests and tavern goersOverall we were satisfied, but not enough to recommend it to a friend 🤷🏻‍♂️

We stayed there for a week with about 30 members in our group and breakfast was essentially non existent during the entire stay even though the person behind the desk would say it would be availableThere were no luggage carts to bring luggage and supplies in from the charter bus There was no courtesy water available from the dispenser AR the desk on the last day

My room did have trash left in it on the floor from previous occupancy We husband and I stay at Marriotts and Hiltons but this Marriott is not a consideration at this moment for future stays

Disgusted the whole time,There was hair and makeup on my sheets, the front desk brought me new sheets but was disgusted the rest of the trip There were also these tiny bugs everywhere, night stand, bathroom, desk, and couchAlso the breakfast & coffee were terrible, they had sausage biscuits one morning in the hotplate

They were literally coldIt will not let me upload the video of the big but I took a picture of the video

One of the best hotels I have ever been to! I loved everything about this place The staff were friendly, greeted everyone and held open doors constantly The lobby was clean and very pretty

Our room overlooked the pool area, which was my favorite part Beautiful palm trees surround the pool with plenty of chairs to relax on There are also some couches and chairs outside where you can relax with a drink if you don’t want to be near the pool If I ever come back to Orlando, I would never stay anywhere except The Celeste

Excellent property, despite the confusing brand Two year old hotel easily ranks with Marriott, Sheraton, or Renaissance brands Clean, quiet rooms, outstanding housekeeping and engineering

Friendly, efficient front desk Hannah and Ireland in the Aurora restaurant, and Joel at the bar are outstanding Especially Joel Valets are friendly and attentive, have the hardest jobs as they’re outside all day Stayed here two weeks for business but enjoyed the clean, well-maintained salt-water pool whenever I could I’ll try to reserve here whenever I return to Orlando for work or pleasure

We are enjoying staying here for graduation Pretty hotel Love the light up Space Shuttle wall mural

Weight room and pool are nice The Aurora restaurant was a lifesaver for us last night after checking in Everything was delicious Our waitress was really nice Front desk staff was welcoming The valet staff were really good and nice I felt bad for them with all the action out there in the heat but they were nice and smiling the whole time Our car was up before we came out every time Rooms are nice with very comfortable beds Definitely recommend this hotel!
