Staybridge Suites (Now Called Sonesta ES Suites)

We stayed here in 2001 and loved the place. It had large suites with a complete kitchen, living room/dining room with comfy sofas and large TV with DVD/Video player, 2 large bedrooms each with their own bathroom. There is a bar and a reasonable sized breakfast room with breakfast included in the room rate. There is an on site swimming pool as well as a games room, a fitness room and a laundry. Not much has changed in the 11 years since we last stayed though it had just been taken over to become Sonesta ES Suites a matter of weeks before we arrived.We were in a smaller room this time as there were just 2 of us but it was still a good size (though the bathroom was compact). The suites could do with a bit of a makeover as they are a little tired now, but the room we had was still perfectly functional & very clean, the parking is free, the staff were helpful and friendly and we enjoyed our stay.

The best thing about my stay was...

Perfect location on that part of I drive, within walking distance of restaurants, shops,and places to go for a drink.

Fantastic!!! The Hotel could not be any more helpful.

We stayed here for 3 weeks in October. Its was fabulous. Free breakfast was great saved you lots dollars. Free transport buses to Disney, Universal and Seaworld. We did not hire a car but utilised the free transport from hotel to themeparks. We also used iRide bus $17 for 14 day unlimited pass, kids go free, which went up and down Int Drive all day. Also used the Lynx bus $2 a ride with free transfers. I could not rate this hotel any higher only wish I was still there. Rooms are fab and spacious with 3 tvs so no fighting over viewing. 10/10 Will definitely go back.

The best thing about my stay was...

Friendliness and cleanliness of staff and hotel. Home from Home brilliant.

WOULD DEFINETLY RETURN!

A NICE HOTEL WITH ONE/TWO BEDROOM SUITES WITH LIVING AREA/KITCHEN. BREAKFAST WAS GOOD WITH SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. TUES, WED, THURS OFFERS FREE DRINKS (ALCOHOLIC/SOFT DRINKS) & SNACKS (BURGERS, CHEESE & CRACKERS) FOR 2HRS WHICH IS A NICE GESTURE. LAID BACK HOTEL WITH GUESTS OF ALL AGES. HOTEL IN WALKING DISTANCE TO SHOPS/RESTAURANTS (BRICK HOUSE NICE FOR FOOD OR DRINKS & IT ALSO SHOWS BRITISH SPORT. BAHAMA BREEZE ALSO NICE & HAS A CARIBBEAN INFLUENCE). HOTEL COULD DO WITH A SLIGHT REFURB BUT WOULD STILL GO BACK.

Great Location

Recently returned from 10 day holiday with our three young boys. What we enjoyed most was the ideal location with I Ride Stop right outside the door. Staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful, nothing was a problem. Breakfast was very good,plenty of variety . Pool was very safe for young children which meant we relax a little more. Apartment was clean ,beds very comfortable and had all we needed. Would definitely return.

Excellent hotel,reasonable price,great location

This was an excellet hotel to stay in.Great location and facilities. Tue/Wed/Thur they have free drinks and food between around 6pm till 7.30pm. Breakfast in the morning was also OK. Facilities within room/apartment are excellent (cooker/microwave/fridge/freezer/micrwave). Very spacious apartments with kitchen area sepearted from bedroom.To be honest I could not find fault with it. Cafe Tu Tu Tango near by is a lovely spot if you need a change from burgers and fries and Millers further down international drive was also very good.
