“Great place close to Disney!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

This hotel is in a great location very close to Downtown Disney. It is about 5-10 min from all 4 of the Disney Parks. There are many restaurants close by and some outlets too. Rooms were nice & clean, the staff was very friendly, & the pool was perfect for our children. Definitely a great bargain!!

Room Tip: Our room was 2nd floor next to the laundry & very great!

We stayed here during the Easter/Spring break, so traffic was very busy.
Having stayed in many Orlando hotels over the years this rates as one of the best. The rooms are large (Two Queen beds)very clean and we could not here any.
noise from any other rooms. As our room was at the rear of the building so we did not have any problem with road noise (I4 very close)
The staff were excellent and very helpful. The hotel is very well placed for Downtown Disney (appox 5/10 mins drive) there are plenty of eating places around the hotel, some within walking distance.
Comments have been made regarding getting in and out of this hotel. I found driving down (Towards Tampa) and exiting at 68? the entrance is no more than 100yards from the exit road, very very easy. The entrance could have a larger sign. Coming out of the hotel you have to turn right (Dual carrigeway) drive towards the traffic lights, u turn and back to the I4. If you cannot manage this very simple task you should not be driving. Remember I was there at a very busy period and had NO problems what so ever

Room Tip: Try for a room at the rear to be away from any possible I4 noise

Dear ‘dennisD08’…GREAT REVIEW! Thank you so much for sharing your ease of maneuvering through the area traffic- we trust that this will put many prospective guests to ease! The traffic can be cumbersome at times, as is to be expected when visiting one of the Top Travel Destinations in the entire world, as that may come when being in the very heart of the city with so many attractions/conveniences available at the tips of your toes and fingers! That also means SO many other visitors as well and we are happy to serve as many guests as we can! We are glad that you had no trouble whatsoever, especially during one of our peak seasons- Spring/Easter! Thank you for sharing that! We are very happy that you had an enjoyable stay- and that your room was satisfactory and comfortable! We hope to have you with us again and thank you sharing, along with visiting of course! We wish you the best and hope to see you soon!
Thank you and best wishes,
Angela on behalf of the Radisson LBV Team

Very good standard, comfortable rooms, very good service, well located, close to Disney parks and to the highway. Good to go with family, we will certainly go back. Excellent experiencefor us.
Be carefull only with the disney sale tickets outside the hotel, close to the parking, small house/office, we had a VERY unpleasant situation, would not recommend to buy tickets there ever!
Anyway the hotel was fantastic!

I did a lot of research before picking a hotel, but sometimes you have your hopes crushed. It happens and I hope I can steer you away from making the same mistake I did. First, don't let the high rank on this hotel fool you. YOU DON'T WANT TO STAY HERE!

Here's the list, draw your own conclusions:

1. This is an old Radisson and the walls are barely there, I could here multiple conversations going on at the same time, all night long.
2. We asked for a feather-free room (my son and wife are very allergic) which we din't get so I called for some different pillows and we waited 30 minutes, I called again and still no pillows, they called me back to ask if I got them (there one positive point in the whole stay) but still nothing, an hour later, pillows but we forgot to mention the bedspread which we checked and was feather as well. We just put it in the corner of the room.
3. The street just outside the hotel is a nightmare. We drove to the Uno's (see map for this) which is within walking distance but it looked like it would rain pretty hard so that's why we drove. From the Uno's back to the hotel took 50 minutes (I am not exaggerating this). We had to turn left on to the road which took a few light cycles to do this then wait on the street until we could move past the hotel, down the street to the next possible place to do a u-turn, wait some more and then finally into the parking lot....50 minutes, let that sink in for a moment.
4. Beds are old, small, and worn out.

We were planning to stay there all week but I didn what I have never done before, I made the call down that night and cancelled that rest of our stay and we went to Fairfield Inn & Suites Orlando Near Universal Orlando Resort which is a very good hotel, see my review of that one for more information. I like Radisson's and I had such high hopes but this old relic of a hotel needs to be torn down and turned into a restaurant or something.

Room Tip: You have been warned about staying here, don't do it.

MgmntTeamRadissonLBV, Manager at Radisson Hotel Orlando - Lake Buena Vista, responded to this review, 7 May 2012
Dear ‘gslink’: We are so sorry to hear of your disappointment. To reflect on the items you shared about...Our hotel is actually one of the newest hotels FULLY renovated in all of Orlando, FL-it is only 4 years old to be precise. We apologize that you were inconvenienced by the seemingly inevitable traffic, however, this being such a popular and busy area, as one of the Nations’ top travel destinations- at times, yes, it can be a little overwhelming. However, the fact that we are so close to so many attractions/conveniences, within walking distance, we trust that this is a true benefit to our guests. Not only does it save time, it also saves money. While we wish that we could determine the weather, unfortunately we cannot. We do have large umbrellas that you may use as well! Should you or any of our guests ever have an issue with noise from your neighbors in your area or from other sensitivities, please allow us a chance to resolve the issue for you, even if it means a room move, if preferred. Please do not hesitate to contact the Front Desk as we will work to resolve immediately as we are here to serve you! Regarding your note on the size of our bedding, the minimum size of mattress we have here is a Queen, while many other hotels in the area offer a Full size. We of course also have rooms that feature King beds and are happy to provide that option to our guests if preferred, by simply adjusting the reservation as necessary. In closing, we do appreciate your visit to our hotel and hope that someday you might reconsider staying with us as your satisfaction is important to us!
Thank you and best wishes,
The Radisson LBV Team

Pretty tip top, great hotel within a walk of Disney village. Beds massive and very comfy, staff brilliant and have a very friendly helpful attitude. Manager extremely approachable and on hand. (Nice guy too!) breakfast is a highlight 10 dollar buffet! Amazing value.

A great start to our tour of the states, looking at using this hotel again at the end of our holiday.
