The hotel has initiated an annoying

The hotel has initiated an annoying elevator key system where your room key must be entered in order to access your floor. Seems ok till you have a convention full of people enter the elevator at the same time reaching over each other to put in their card, which doesn't work half the time. It is a bogus security move as anyone can ride along and get off on any floor someone else enters without a key of their own.

Excellent hotel; we had 1 night

Excellent hotel; we had 1 night in Orlando before leaving on a cruise and this hotel is close to the airport. It was a very nice room and we would definitely stay here again to take in the Orlando attractions or to head out on another cruise. The hotel quality and price makes the distance from Sea World and Disneyworld a non-issue for us. We rent a car and don't mind driving so it was a bargain compared to the hotels closer to the attractions. Again, we were very impressed with how nice this hotel is and the Florida Mall is right beside it for those who like high-end shopping.
