Orlando Marriott Lake Mary Reviews
An unexpected stay Oct 21, 2011
Back in 2005 we had had our two weeks in Orlando and were sad to be leaving. We packed our bags, said goodbye to Mickey Mouse and headed to Sanford International airport. We returned the hire car and made our way to departures for the long journey home.
But what's this? An apologetic representative of the airline with the news that there was a problem with the aircraft and we would have to stay in Orlando one more night. A hotel provided, with meals and an allowance. Woo hoo!!
The hotel they had chosen for us was the Marriott Hotel in Lake Mary, a couple of miles from the airport. The area including the hotel and a shopping complex seemed to have been recently developed and everything was fresh and new.
The hotel was very nice, we had 2 rooms on the 8th floor and they were clean, comfortable and spacious (and free!). The food was excellent (and free!) and the bar was well stocked (and free!). I have marked the hotel with a 3 for value because we didn't pay for any part of our stay so it's difficult to make a genuine assessment of the prices. I have stayed in other Marriott Hotels and they generally present good value for money.
Anyway, we spent some time on foot exploring the shops around Lake Mary, had a memorable ice cream and admired the custom bike built for the Corona Cigar shop in the mall. We also had a memorable run for cover when a Florida storm rolled in!
The location was perfect for us requiring a stop-over close to the airport and I would recommend this hotel for anyone needing the same.
All in all it was a very nice, if unexpected, experience but sadly the next day the fault had been fixed and we really did have to leave.
