Park Inn by Radisson
By Angie Roberts Harris
My family recently stayed at the Park Inn on Maingate Lane in Orlando, Florida and had an awesome visit! If you are considering Orlando as a vacation destination and looking for a great place to stay, Park Inn offers outstanding amenities.
Location is absolutely the greatest benefit of Park Inn! The resort and conference center is less than 5 miles from the entrance to Disney World, 11 miles from Sea World, and 15 miles from Universal Studios. There is also a variety of restaurants within walking distance such as IHOP, McDonalds, Ponderosa, and Burger King as well as shopping areas. Enjoy a leisurely stroll as the area is flat with sidewalks.
Park Inn provides a scheduled free shuttle service to Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores, Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom, Epcot Center, Sea World, and Universal Studios. We took the shuttle to Epcot Center and were dropped off very close to the entrance.
The window of our room faced the Walt Disney properties. At night, we settled in to an amazing view of dazzling fireworks from several of the parks. The hotel is tucked in behind the street with a clear view. Animal Kingdom is the closest park and the fireworks are beautiful!
Room prices vary, of course, but the rates are reasonable! Our room was clean, had a refrigerator, and included free wireless Internet access. The large garden tub was comforting after a tiring day of walking in the park and the tile floors added a nice touch.
The gift shop is family friendly and stocks common forgotten items, microwaveable food and snacks, Disney and Florida souvenirs, swim suits, flip flops, and toys.
The conference center features 30k square feet of flexible meeting space. Park Inn can accommodate up to 1,300 attendees with a full service sales and catering team on property.
