“Fantastic for family vacation”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

This was our second visit to this hotel, last time in 2009 (found on tripadvisor). This time we stayed for 11 days in march 2012. We got a family room with a separate bedrom (for the kids). The location is perfect for an Orlando vacation, right outside Disney World and with a lot of nice restaurants and shopping possibilities nearby. What made us go back to the Radisson Lake Buena Vista was free parking, very good service and very nice rooms. The hotel is very well maintained and still looks brand new. The rooms are spacious and very clean. I have only two negative things to say about this property and that is that I have some issues with getting the sleep number beds to work for me (but finally found a setting that suited me), and that the elevators can be slow sometimes, but these are really minor drawbacks. Oh, and the value for money is great, especcially for stays more than 7 days.

Room Tip: Family rooms are great and can sleep up to 6 people, the rooms seems well insulated, got no noise fr...

this hotel is in a great location for all and is only across the road from the road entrance into Walt Disney!

The hotel do provide a free shuttle service to Disney and to Universal Studios however this is a 'first come first serve' basis and can become very busy and you may need to stand!
The hotel do have a good choice for breakfast at a reasonable price.

For those who would like to eat out, there is a large number of restaurant's across from the hotel just a few minutes walk away including TGI Fridays! where you will get great service

The hotel has got a swimming pool at the side.

When you check into the hotel we were told there was a welcome pack for us however this is just a ploy to get you to buy park tickets from them and the welcome pack is actually just free samples of the likes of deodorant!

The rooms are again of very good size and had 2 large double beds in them as well as a sofa and large tv (this was in the room we had)

If you are driving around it is very easy to get around Orlando from the hotel as well with the i95 just across from the hotel!

I would recommend this hotel to everyone!

We were staying at this hotel again 2 weeks ago, and is the best cost effective option. Near parks, shopping centers near and the best restaurants around. Don't think, just book there....

Room Tip: If you're travel with a family you can book a family suite with 2 rooms.

Another Radisson Lake Buena Vista fan. I don't usually stay offsite, but since I rented a car this time, I'm glad I picked this one. I stayed for one night early in the first week of March 2012 and then for 2 nights a little later in the week.

Did not eat at the breakfast (although it looked good) as I eat gluten-free. I ate snacks and breakfast in my room and a few meals at the nearby Sweet Tomatoes (recommended) restaurant in the nearby CrossRoads shopping center.

ROOM: As to the room, nothing to complain about there. Both rooms that I had were very clean and the white patterned duvets with the white sheets made the room seem sparkly.

Even though I was traveling solo this time, there is plenty of room here for families of 5 - (the small couch in both the rooms that I had appeared to be a small hide-a-bed). I noticed that care has been taken to keep the rooms from quickly looking tired - for example, corners in the room are wrapped with plexi to keep them from chipping and marble tops on desk, dresser and luggage bench make them chip proof. These hotel rooms will look fresh for years to come. The rooms are as shown on the website, so the space in a regular room would be nice for families of 5 - or those with 2 kids of opposite genders and too old to share beds. The proximity to Crossroads shopping center - for light groceries and chain restaurants for eating - plus the fridge and microwave, access to laundry, large closet and easy access to WDW, make this a good budget option for families of 5. (For those that require even more space, 2 room family suites are also available)

GUEST LAUNDRY: I used the new guest laundry on the 2nd floor - 3 washers, 3 dryers. The washers are new front loaders (use very very little detergent) that tell you how much time to go in the cycle - very nice - and better even than Disney has. One flight down from the laundry is the pool, so it's convenient to lie by the pool with your watch waiting for your laundry to finish.

WI-FI: The free wi-fi was non-existent in the first room (used the hotel lobby to send emails) - but was adequate in the 2nd room. This hotel could benefit from installing routers on each floor of the hotel to boost the wi-fi signal.

GETTING AROUND: Didn't find it a pain to use the right then left turn onto Hotel Plaza Blvd route to get anywhere in Walt Disney World. (This is a good route for newbies - as there are signs all the way and GPS can be confusing if you don't have the correct address in it). On the way back to the hotel, take Exit 68 and utilize the left turn lanes to get back to the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel would be quieter. If wi-fi important, get one near the elevator on a...

Dear Miz_Kitty: Thank you so much for your very detailed and helpful review! Of course in that, thank you for the compliments detailed in your review as well! Most of all, thank you for visiting our hotel! We do continue to work on our WIFI, a free service that is heavily used here at the hotel! It seems we must continue to upgrade as the use continues to increase- perhaps because we offer it as a complimentary service to our guests- rare on this side of town! Your comment has been shared with our entire Mgmnt Team!

Of course, we would love to have you back again...and, we do have King Beds available at the hotel too! We even have Jacuzzi Suites with a King Bed should you wish to enjoy a little extra self-pampering :) Please contact the hotel direct and ask for a Manager, here at the hotel the next time you plan to return- it would be our pleasure to assist you personally !

Thank you kindly and we wish you the very best!

We stayed at RLBV for the first time in 2009 and it was our choice again in 2012 for our second Disney trip.

Great value, friendly staff, great quality sleep, lots of space, clean rooms and comfortable "sleep-number" beds. It's located near disney parks and they also have a shuttle for those who choose not to rent a car.

I made some online shopping and the packages were safely kept locked inside the manager's room. I had no problems picking them up and the staff was very helpful.

If we decide to visit Orlando again, RLBV will be our first choice for the third time. Definitely recommend this hotel.
