Spent two weeks here with our family (2 adults/2 children). We wanted a suite-hotel (with a separate bedroom) as our youngest child was only 12 months old at the time and we knew she'd be going to bed long before we were! We also wanted somewhere fairly spacious and the Hawthorne Suites did not disappoint.
It's a nice complex and excellent value for money. Staff were extremely friendly and approachable. The room was a great size with a kitchen/ diner, separate lounge area and bedroom (with two queen size beds). Kitchen was well equipped (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, hob and plenty of plates, cups, glasses, utensils etc). Room was cleaned well (every day if you want or you can opt to have it done less than this is you don't want staff traipsing in your room on a regular basis).
The outside pool area and hot tub was pleasant. There are landscaped gardens and basketball courts. It's not a huge garden area (and the pool could get fairly crowded some evenings) but it was enough for my children and a good place for them to cool off in after a hot day at Disney World.
Breakfast was free (as was parking) and there was a fairly good variety of hot and cold food. The breakfast area could get crowded but they had an extra 'over flow' room they opened up on some days so there was always enough seating to be found.
Hotel was close - only a mile or so away - to Disney. There were shuttle buses that came to the hotel (as long as you were prepared to go at set times) although we had a car with us so didn't take these.
Overall a really pleasant stay and we would stay there again.
