Accommodation and Hotels in Orlando, Florida

Choosing and Booking Hotels in the Orlando Area

Orlando Florida has the second highest number of hotel bedrooms of any American city after Las Vegas. Traditionally these had been budget Orlando hotels with few deluxe Orlando hotels outside of Disney. In recent years as Orlando has grown into a major business convention center, better hotels are being built offering holiday makers more choice.

The majority of hotels and motels are spread along either the 192 or International Drive, with some of the better ones around the convention center at the eastern end of International Drive.

When looking at hotels consider not only their distance from the Disney attractions but also the traffic. Where International Drive crosses the I4 and 482 (West Sand Lake Road) there can be some significant traffic jams

Some hotels offer airport and Theme Park shuttle bus services and there is a trolley bus service that runs the length of International Drive.

You will see signs and adverts for hotels and for motels. In general terms a hotel will have a reception with stairs and lifts leading to rooms set off internal corridors. With a Motel the bedroom door will lead directly outside or onto an open corridor, reception will be in a separate area.

Prices vary but as an indication, British Airways list 52 hotels in the Orlando area on their website with the majority costing less than £1000 for a family of 3 for two weeks in August 2012. The cheapest costs £271 including Disney transfers and and continental breakfast.
