Fodor's Review

The name is a mouthful, but it's an accurate description for this hotel, which caters to business-trippers and pleasure seekers alike, thanks to a location close to the Universal Orlando entrance and not far from the Convention Center. It's so close to Universal that some of the tower rooms offer a view of the Hogwarts Castle and roller coasters. Rooms offer 32-inch flat-screen TVs, work desks, and airy blue, yellow and white decor with duvet-style linens. A heated pool

makes winter visits more fun, as do the warm chocolate-chip cookies offered in the lobby. Don't worry about noisy conventioneers—the meeting and convention facilities are isolated from the guest towers.

Its a Monet, Nice from the outside, Dirty on the inside

Not bad for the price and location. Still had some flaws though. First, Its not the newest hotel and that makes it feel older then it is. The pool had mildew stains, The fountain outside had green water, and the hotel bar was expensive, except for happy hour where they do put out a nice spread!
