I was in Orlando FL (not for Disney this time) traveling alone and wanted to be close to the airport so I didn’t have to return the rental car at o’dark:30 in the morning before heading in for my flight.
I had booked a room at the Sheraton Suites Orlando Airport. They had a great room rate for a suite, comparable to the other hotels nearby (you would recognize all the names), and even lower-priced than some.
Since a family member dropped me off, I did not take the shuttle from the airport to the hotel. I had previously traveled for business, so I was already a Marriott rewards member. I am happy that Sheraton is part of the Marriott family.
We arrived (it was late on a Sunday – after 9 pm) to a very modern lobby with many seating areas. I discovered on the way to the hotel that I had lost my phone charger.
There was no big reception desk, but some employees behind a smaller desk greeted us and beckoned me over. They checked me in quickly.
The lobby has a snack bar with a little store. Maybe I can get a new charger! I checked out their wall of items for sale.
Unfortunately for me, they did NOT have a USB-C charger that I could buy there. They did have both apple chargers and USB-mini chargers, however. Since I had no more rental car to go anywhere else, I’d just have to make do.
I asked the check-in ladies about the free airport shuttle for the next morning. They booked me on that, and I went up to my room.
The key to enter into the room was different from what I’m used to. A new magnetic keypad? I love new cool stuff!!
The desk (big and suitable for work) and main seating area as you walk in:
Turning around, I was grateful to see the free bottle of water, and a little fridge in which to cool it (or whatever I needed to keep cool). Yay – since it was just an overnight stay, no hunting down a vending machine or buying water from the lobby store!
Close-ups of the coffee/tea and water/ice bar:
The rest of the room has the usual amenities, including a docking station next to the bed, and plenty of plugs for devices in both rooms.
Here comes my favorite part and what makes this hotel stand out above the others – having a suite with a closed-off bedroom!
SO MANY HOTELS with the word “suites” in the name that I have stayed in lately have rooms that are all one big room with maybe a half-wall divider. This separation of the bedroom from sitting/working space was a huge frill for me.
Even though I didn’t travel with anyone this time, discovering that there are still hotels that have this room separation feature means that I can put this hotel on my short-list of favorites.
I love that if you’re traveling with others and you want to get some work done and they want to go to bed, you can separate yourself and not disturb them.
The bed was VERY comfy and cushy, and I slept well. The pillows looked puffy, but they were foam – not down or feather pillows.
The only bad part about the room was that, had I wanted to sleep in, I might have been disturbed. That room is on the back side of the hotel, and around 5 am, I heard a garbage truck banging around and backing up.
Good thing I had to get up at o’dark:30!
The bathroom is your usual bathroom, nice and clean, and the long sink with towel storage (and plenty of towels!) is very pretty. And the closet has doors.
I was pleased to see that they offer a printing service if you need that.
Tips for your stay there:
- I did not notice a room price that included breakfast when I booked. If you want breakfast, you could either pay for it down at the restaurant or book directly with the hotel and ask for a price on a room with breakfast included.
- If you want to sleep past 5 am, you might want to ask for a room on the front side of the hotel so if it’s garbage day, hearing the truck doesn’t wake you up.
- Try to check in late afternoon or early evening for a 1-night stay if you need the airport shuttle.
- Get your shuttle seat reserved ASAP. I had to take a later shuttle than I wanted because the earlier one was already full when I checked in.
- Get outside to wait for the shuttle ASAP in the morning, or the good seats will already be taken. I watched as a poor pregnant woman shoehorned herself between the end of the middle seat and the van wall to try to get into the back seat. (She could have sat in the front, but I guess she didn’t want to be separated from her family. I wouldn’t have been able to squeeze myself back there, and none of the young, thin men in the good seats had any chivalry or home-training. These are your pickins for mates, my young, single friends (Insert eye-roll here).)
I did not stay long enough to check out their amenities like the workout room and pool. That will have to wait for another trip. I look forward to staying here again if I (or we) go to Orlando and want a hotel near the airport.
