When it comes to accommodation, the standard and variety of Orlando hotels in 2016 is simply staggering.
At the last count, there were around 400 hotels in Orlando. These include opulent palaces of luxury, five-star golf hotels, four-star hotels and two- and three-star Orlando resorts that cater for travellers on a budget.
If the focus of your holiday is theme parks, look for an Orlando family hotel in one of the resorts, such as Universal or Disney. All offer a wide range of accommodation. Disney, for example, has everything from the Holiday Inn to the Four Seasons.
The advantages of staying at resort hotels include free transport to and from the airport, plus free or queue-busting early entry to the theme parks of Orlando.
Orlando resort hotels don’t just vary in terms of room size or price either, you even get to take your pick of different themes.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, for example, has an African safari theme, complete with live animals, while Loews Portofino Bay Resort at Universal channels the Italian seaside.
Of course, resorts aren’t your only option. You might save money by bedding down in one of the cheap hotels in Orlando that are situated near or on International Drive. Plus, you’ll still be close to all of the theme parks as well as all the nightlife, restaurants and shops of I-Drive.
Hotels away from the International Drive area are often cheaper. They’re less likely to offer shuttle services, but if you’re hiring a car, it’s an extra you might not need.
Hotels in Downtown Orlando or North Orlando will put you smack bang in the city’s cultural hub, close to the main museums and nightlife options. You can find out more about the after-dark dancing and drinking possibilities on our Orlando nightlife page.
Houses and villas are in plentiful supply in Orlando too, and are perfect for families and large groups. They feature washing and cooking facilities, and, in some cases, a swimming pool.
For a taste of adventure, you can’t beat the great outdoors.
Campgrounds and RV resorts near Orlando provide easy access to activities such as hiking, fishing, boating, mountain biking and horse riding.
The Great Outdoors in Titusville and Tropical Palms in Kissimmee are among those on offer, and Walt Disney World has even set up its own with Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground for those who need their American-frontier fantasy fix.
