Why We Like It

If your plans include visiting Universal Orlando, SeaWorld, or checking out The Wheel at Icon Park, Madame Tussaud’s or SeaLife Aquarium, or shopping at the various malls and outlets in the Universal area, including the Premium Outlets International Drive, we highly recommend the Embassy Suites by Hilton Orlando International Drive Convention Center. A MouseSavers Preferred Hotel, this recently renovated 1-bedroom suite hotel offers extra room, FREE cooked-to-order hot and cold breakfast, and an FREE evening reception with complimentary beverages including beer and wine.

The hotel provides comfortable 1-bedroom suites situated around a chic contemporary atrium, and is conveniently located in the heart of International Drive near the Orlando Convention Center. That makes it extremely convenient to both Universal Orlando and SeaWorld (7-9 minutes drive to either, or use the hotel’s shuttle service) and easy walking distance to lots of other dining, shopping, and entertainment destinations.

If you do want to visit Walt Disney World while staying here, it’s only a 15-20 minute drive on I-4 to the Disney parks, or the hotel offers shuttle service to Universal Orlando and Walt Disney World. Although this is a convention hotel, it’s very family-friendly and offers many of the amenities and leisure services that you would find at a family resort hotel.

If allergies are an issue for anyone in your family, the hotel has 12 hypoallergenic PURE suites available with improved air quality.

FREE Breakfast and Dining Options

Guests receive an extensive FREE cooked-to-order hot and cold breakfast* each morning, with omelets, breakfast potatoes, eggs and bacon or lighter choices like fruit, oatmeal and pastries. If you are in a hurry to get to the parks, you can also enjoy a bagel and coffee to go.

There is a nightly reception* in the atrium lobby where you will find FREE beverages, including beer, wine, select liquors and sodas, and light snacks. Adults and kids are welcome.

Bar Meets Grill*, the hotel’s new on-site restaurant, has a casual, pleasant atmosphere and serves lunch and dinner from 11:00 am – 11:00 pm, and provides room-service dining as well. The Florida-inspired menu features seafood and American cuisine.

There are numerous other dining options nearby; restaurants within a block of the hotel include Yard House, Red Robin, a brand new Shake Shack, BJ’s Restaurant, Chuy’s Mexican and a Del Frisco’s Steak House. It’s an easy walk to Bahama Breeze, Capital Grille, Maggiano’s and even a Friendly’s ice cream parlor; and a short drive or cab ride takes you to the excellent “restaurant row” on Sand Lake road, where you can find many of Orlando locals’ favorite restaurants like Ocean Prime, MoonFish, and perennial MouseSavers favorite Seasons 52.

Transportation

If you prefer not to drive, scheduled shuttles are available to the Walt Disney World theme parks and Universal Orlando for a fee. Shuttles to Walt Disney World are available for $14 roundtrip per person; Universal Orlando shuttle service is $6 roundtrip per person. Advance reservations are required. The shuttles are perfectly adequate to get you to and from the parks, but there are just a few scheduled trips each morning and a few in the evening. If you want more flexibility or like to take a break in the middle of the day, we recommend renting a car.

If you’d like to explore the extensive shopping, dining and entertainment venues along International Drive, you may want to try out the I-RIDE Trolley. This convenient bus service operates from 8:00 am to 10:30 pm daily and runs throughout the International Drive Resort Area. Trolleys run every 20-30 minutes, and you can hop on and hop off anywhere along the routes. This is an inexpensive way to get to SeaWorld, or the Orlando Premium Outlets, and saves you the hassle of parking, although you may want to plan on extra travel time – it makes many stops along the way.

Self-parking is $15.
