A family-friendly taste of the tropics in Orlando by major theme parks

A sports bar, pool bar, and full-service restaurant is available on site. Rooms come with Wi-Fi access, mini refrigerator, microwave oven. Additional services include 24-hour business center, parking and shuttle service to parks.

Rooms

Azure blue comforters and jade-colored walls and accents create a tropical feel in these comfortable accommodations at the International Palms Resort, which are available as standard rooms or suites. Beached-themed prints play up the casual style. Guests find the basics covered, including Wi-Fi access, work desk and sofa bed. A coffeemaker, mini-refrigerator and microwave invite in-room dining. Suites have the added luxuries of a dining table and separate living area.

Features

Families take advantage of the free-form resort-style pool surrounded by palm trees and lapping waterfalls at the International Palms Resort. The Pool Hut Bar serves light fare and drinks, while the Coral Key Bar and Grill gets the party started with nightly karaoke and live entertainment. Several fun activities are offered on site, such as movie night by the pool, create-your-own-ice-cream-sundaes, and handling alligators at Alligator Academy.

Apart from this hotel, holidaymakers can also unwind at the sister property, the oceanfront International Palms Resort Cocoa Beach located only 45 minutes away. It's the closest beach to Orlando! Vacationers enjoy the true Florida resort setting with choices of oceanfront suites, lofts, ocean view, poolside Cabana's and much more.

Great location

I traveled to Orlando January 1, 1212 for 6 days with my boyfriend. Our vacation was mediocre. There were hotel fees at the end of our stay and it just seemed that everywhere we went it was costly. So, I would suggest if you are planning a trip to Orlando to include additional fees/random extras that will cost you a lot more than you expect. However, the hotel was nice in terms of cleanliness and staff friendliness, though they really try to sell on buying tickets for the parks.

Convenient but ordinary

Calling this a "Resort" is a bit of a stretch. Nice outdoor pool-- great location for Universal and Seaworld. Overall ok... but could have been a touch cleaner.

For Business

This was a fine hotel for my business trip and it had all you needed for your stay. For vacation I would not enjoy it simple because in a resort ,you want everything the hotel has to offer close and contained . Walking from building to building to get to and from meals, bar, pool etc. was not to my liking. Overall price was fare due to the forth night free offer.

As Expected

Was in a "newly remodeled" tower room. Found the room spacious with new carpet and fresh coat of paint. Found sheets to be fresh, and beds to be okay. As others have mentioned, the bathrooms were not fully updated with the rest of the room, leaky faucet handles and cracked tiles. Not that big of deal really, considering the bargain pricing. Was there for a recent conference and found all wait staff and cleaning staff to be timely and effective. Would not suggest eating at the hotel restaurant as I found it disappointing. Only one staff member ran the entire restaurant, he was trying his best but obviously needed help. However between the lack of staff and poor quality food, I did not return.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Do not eat at the hotel, you will be disappointed. In this location you really have no excuse as there are at least a dozen other places to eat within a 5-10 minute walk.
