FROG FAMILY REVIEW
Sonesta ES Suites Orlando International Drive*

What we love

  • Spacious apartment-style suites come fully equipped, including full kitchens with a refrigerator, microwave, stove-top, dishwasher, pots, pans, silverware and plates.
  • The outdoor pool and hot tub provide a refreshing place to lounge and splash.
  • The on-site breakfast eatery, The Morning Pour, is a great place to fuel up before a busy day of fun.
  • This hotel is pet friendly, so you can bring your furry family members along for the adventure.
  • Guests can utilize on-site self-laundry facilities for unexpected messes or to pack lighter.
  • Parking is included in the Daily Amenities Fee.
  • International Drive is bustling with a variety of restaurants, attractions, bars, and shopping – all within walking distance or a short shuttle ride away.
  • Universal Orlando Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld Orlando Resort, Discovery Cove, and other Orlando attractions are just minutes away from your lily pad.

Keep in Mind

  • The hotel charges a daily amenities fee (to be collected at check-in).
  • The on-site restaurant only serves breakfast, but there are several dining options available at ICON Park across the street.
  • While bringing furry family members is encouraged, there is an additional fee associated.
  • Shuttle reservations should be made 48 hours in advance to secure a spot; check with the front desk for availability.
  • Bookings made with Undercover Tourist will not be eligible for Sonesta's Travel Pass Rewards points.
  • While smoking is prohibited in the hotel, there is a designated outdoor smoking area available.

Frog Family Tips

  • Utilize the hotel’s shuttle service to hit the parks – shuttles run at scheduled times to both Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando Resort and are included in the Daily Amenities Fee.
  • A hop across the street is toadally worth it – take a ride on The Wheel at ICON Park for a birdseye view of Orlando from 400 feet in the air.
  • Wrap the day up in the hotel pond: there’s a heated pool to soak tired frog legs.
  • Practice your at-home chef dreams in the full kitchen with plenty of room to stock up on your frog family’s favorite meals and snacks (many local grocery stores offer delivery).

Best For

  • Larger frog families (including pets!) that want some space to sprawl out in-between hops to Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort and Orlando attractions.
