- Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy
- Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy
- Use data to better understand and make decisions about energy use
- Measure the results
- Review how well the policy works, and
- Continually improve energy management.

Nice clean rooms, plenty of towels, etc. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was okay and evening free snack wasn't dinner, consisted of free wine/beer and cheese, salad and chips/pretzels. Pool area clean and kept nice. My only complaint is some of the guests were very pushy and rude at the breakfast/snack area, not waiting their turn, jumping in front of you, and using their fingers to get food. Lacking manners. We were glad to be on the 5th floor. First floor seemed very noisy because you had to walk through entire first floor hallway to get to hotel lobby. Single elevator on each end of building. Would stay again .

Returned from dinner on our first night at Homewood Suites to find our hotel room door propped open, and a hotel employee in our room going through our suitcases. He assured us that there was a mix-up and he would credit our Hilton Hhonors account with 30,000 points. Apparently, there was a mix-up and they "accidentally" rented our room to another family while we were out at dinner. They had no record of renting the room to us, despite the fact that we prepaid the reservation and they gave us keys during check-in. The next morning, when we returned from breakfast, our keys had been inactivated. So after another trip to the front desk, the keys were reactivated. I really wanted to believe these "mix-ups" would be the end of it, however, we discovered the kitchen area was infested with ants. Also, the bathroom was very dated, and the tub had not been cleaned very well prior to our arrival. We're still waiting for the 30,000 Hhonors points to be credited to our account. Unfortunately, we will NOT be visiting Homewood Suites again anytime soon! This was a very disappointing experience.

Retro designed hotel well accented with color and tastefully done. These suites follow suit with just enough of the design to create a welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are well maintained right to the corners. Kitchens are stocked with pans and kitchenware, dishwasher and full sized refridgerator. The staff was extremely accomodating and the breakfast buffet included was continuously rotated and hot. Cold foods and fruits etc. as well. I gave this 5 stars because the 5 star hotels miss some of the above.

Really nice place. Clean. Friendly helpful staff. The breakfast was really good. Didn't get a chance to have dinner there. Only thing I didn't like was the shuttle schedule to the park. They had one bus that way to many stops. It took over a half hour to get to the park. Easier to take a cab. And the return shuttle times were only at 810 pm which sucked because we missed dinner each night and the parks didn't close until 10. I don't want to have to leave early for no reason.

This Homewood Suites provided kind service and had little to no filth. Also, they had an enjoyable breakfast with bacon and Mickey waffles. Overall, it's a nice and cheap place to stay in the Orlando area.

We started with a large group. The staff were all very accommodating. Eddie at the front desk was especially helpful. He even drew a map to show me how to get to the nearest gas station. The kitchens in the rooms have everything, silverware, dishes, pots and pans. They even provide dishsoap and detergent for the dishwasher.

I stayed here for 19 days and it was like home away from home. The room was extremely clean! The staff was fantastic! I needed to extend my stay in a period when rates had increased. The manager gave it to be for the price I had been paying. Excellent customer service. Can’t beat free breakfast and lite dinner/happy hour. Excellent location for those going to Universal and close to everything on International Drive. Will definitely stay for my next business trip! Thanks Homewood!

This hotel had great service! The staff were so kind and polite! The rooms were beautiful and spotless, the pool was amazing and clean! This was an amazing resort, the breakfast was also very good! Nothing to complain about, the best resort I have ever stayed in! This resort deserves more than a 5 star rating, and we will definitely be staying here again!

Very good hotel, a little noise from the pool area quickly taken care of by staff. Staff were excellent through and through. Rooms are large and well appointed although older in decoration and construction. Laundry facilities were good too. Breakfast was simple but good. Very pleased with stay overall, will return.

Good location for Universal Studios. Shuttle was kind of meh, I'd suggest driving ($20 a day in the ramp). It worked for one of the days where we stayed all day. You could walk, but you're walking a lot already in the park. Breakfast was good. Didn't get to the dinner thing. Room was nice, bed was great at the end of the day.

Very cheap for how close it was to Universal Studios. There were 3 rooms with kitchen, and 3 beds(including the sofa-bed), with a bathroom and shower. The breakfast is well above average for an hotel, and dinner was even served for Thanksgiving day. There is also a collection of films you can borrow to watch during your stay. Very comfortable. My only gripe was that the TV kept changing brightness without any way to change it in settings.

If anyone is looking for a great deal on hotels you can check it out on HotelRaven. com Booked a hotel on there and they had the cheapest rates around... Hotel is nice. Beds are too soft. Breakfast is included. It's a hot breakfast. Not horrible but not great. Certainly good enough. It's VERY close to Universal. You could walk but it would be a bit of a hike. It's a little over a mile away the way you'd have to walk--you have to cross over I-4. Overall a decent place to stay.

If anyone is looking for a great deal on hotels you can check it out on HotelRaven. com Booked a room on there and they had the cheapest rates around... The room was much nicer than we expected. The bed was in a separate room than the living area. There was a stove and microwave. The hotel also had a fire pit. If we were staying longer, we would have utilized that area. The hotel also had a bus to take people to Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure. Breakfast was much better than I would expect from a hotel. All in all, this was a great stay

Our family of 4 stayed there for 3 nights, and it was perfect for our Universal visit. Large 1BR suites were modern, very clean, and bright. Kitchen was well-appointed. Great to have sink outside shower/toilet space. Housekeeping and front desk staff were excellent, eager to help and knowledgeable. The complimentary breakfast was perfect for our needs. To Universal, it's a 3 minute drive (take Uber for $5) - faster than all other transport methods (and probably on-property hotels). Highly recommended!

Not terribly priced given that you are close to the parks and an extended stay is always the way to go if you have a family that you've brought. Rooms are recently remodeled or the building is new. Either way the whole family loved it even though we didn't spend much time there.

Rooms were clean and well serviced. All the necessaries for a self catering stay. Breakfast was not bad. Staff were super hospitable. Gym wasn't great, treadmills are to hard for my 75kg self. Plenty of parking and a pool. Close enough to the attractions and many great food options on international boulevard, just a few kms down the road.

It was AMAZING! It was my first time in Orlando, and the young lady at the front desk was so kind and generous. When I arrived into my suite, I was STUNNED by the cleanliness and the presentation. It blew me away. My view was right across the road from Universal Studios. I loved my time there, and I plan on coming back this year.

First off, I have never given a review. In this case I feel it necessary. I was blown away by the courteousness of the staff and how accommodating they are. it's so nice to see a smiling, friendly face every time you turn the corner. You can tell they all support and love each other. I'm thinking that might be what sets them apart. I didn't mind one bit that the hotel was under construction. Our room was amazing especially for family lots of privacy two separate rooms nice kitchenette. They have awesome hot breakfast with several different choices every morning. They are right around the corner of universal and shuttle there several times a day. Our first visit to Orlando could not have been better. Thank you so much Homewood suites Amy from Georgia
