We stayed in this hotel end April begining of May.I am quite fussy about cleanliness so I was quite concerned as I could not find any previous reviews.

The hotel was spotless! Our room was on the 5th floor-not a great veiw-car park and fields(apparently if you ask for a pool view room you have a good chance of seeing the nighttime fireworks from Disney. A really convenient area on palm parkway-closeby to the local shopping centre that had shops and restaraunts/takeawys. They were all within walking distance so most evenings we left the car at the hotel and went up the street to a restaurant for dinner and drinks.

We loved the alehouse at the top of the road and also chilli's - at the top of the road-over the road on the left.

Hotel Happy hour was Mon-Thurs-the gentleman was very friendly and a few nites we drank quite a bit longer and he left us some jugs of beer.

Breakfast was very repetative but if your like me, I tend to eat the same things anyway-so most days we had a bagel or toast and a piece of fruit. There was muffins, sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs and cereal etc.

The hotel did have quite a few very large groups of teenagers there on school trips-they were no problem whatso ever.

As a couple we found the hotel ideal-peaceful and relaxing and very friendly.

The pool was lovely-not very big- but warm and the sun shone all day. They have towels for your use by the pool but they are very small!

Staff were so friendly and helpful- I only have one real grumble.I got stuck in the lift the second day! We had gone to get supplies-water etc. On way up to room in lift it stopped between floors. There are no signs in lift of what to do. I pressed emergency button but noting. There is a cupboard in lift-found phone called for help. Eventullay they got us out but we had to climb out as the lift was stuck between floors-Very scarey as I was scared it would drop whilst I was getting out!(the lift certificate was out of date)They didn't apologise or check I was ok-so the second week I mentioned it to the virgin rep and the next day I had a letter of apology and flowers.

Rooms were ample-lounge/diner/kitchen-microwave, large fridgefreezer,hob etc. bedroom with two double beds.

Despite the lift problem I would definately go back-we met other people who were staying nearby who had really bad accomadation that we very nearly chose-so I am so glad we found the hawthorne suites.

This hotel is located on Palm Palkway which is 10 minutes from the Disney resorts and parks and is close to Junc 68 on the I4. It is a good base to use for the parks but beware the offer of free shuttle as it only goes 3 times a day and also only returns 3 times a day as well it also only stops @ Epcot so you then have to use the monorail or disney buses to get to the other parks. We ended up driving every day as it was more flexible even though you then had to pay $12 for the parks except the Water ones. Checking in was quick and the staff helpful. There is no bar but there are free drinks (soft, beer and wine but you pay for spirits) Mon - Thurs 5.30 to 7.30pm. Our room was on the 3rd floor and was spaciuos if a little dated (especially the kitchenette). The room was serviced every day with clean towels and bed linen every other day. Any issues we had were sorted quickly. The breakfast was Ok but repetitive,cereals, toast, a type of sausage and burger and if you don't like scrambled eggs then there is little choice. Don't be late as the food is cleared bang on time. The pool area is clean and gets the sun all day,the pool was warm and not too busy, the jacuzzi spa is also warm. We used the BBQ's twice as an alternative to going out or eating in the room. The hotel is located on Palm Parkway and is surrounded by other hotels in a nice quiet area, the nearest supermarket id called Winn Dixie and it was very good for all manner of foods etc, there is also a Walmart approx 5 mins back towards Orlando. Don't use the supermarkets which are toward the I4 as they are very expensive. we used the laundry twice and it cost $1.75 to wash and another $1.75 for the tumble dryer and both are quick approx 45 mins.Be careful of the kids using the Nintendo via the TV as they are chargeable and do not need a password to be used. Restautants to use are The Alehouse, The Green Orchid and a good bar is Johnnies Hideaway. If we were to return to this area we would seriously consider returning to this hotel.

Fair sized suites with kitchen area TV & Games console, Seperate bedroom with T.V is really handy. Good choice for Breakfast, Towels provided around pool area. Shuttles to from parks for none drivers, Walking distance to Seaworld! The only bad thing about this hotel is the lack of bar...although there is a shop onsite!

Great overall!!
