Photo Tour of A Queen Bed Room at the Holiday Inn Orlando, Disney Springs Resort Area



By Dave Shute

The Holiday Inn Orlando in the Disney Springs Resort Area has several room types in two buildings–a fourteen story main tower and an adjacent six story building. Rooms with a king bed and rooms with two queens are available, most with balconies.  When booking, you can select your beds, choose balcony or not, and also choose your view.

This photo tour is of a tower two queen room.

The entry has the bath on one side, and a closet on the other

The bath features a single sink, and no internal divisions, making it not in the least family-friendly. Note the under-sink storage, which you may need to use, as these rooms are short on storage.

The tub-shower combo is a bit more family friendly than shower-only options you’ll find in some other hotel rooms.

Here’s the toiletries offered.

There’s a bit more storage in a cubby in the wall between the bath and the main living space.

On the other side of the entry, you’ll find a closet with an iron and ironing board on one side…

…and on the other, clothes hanging space.

The clothes hanging space is smaller than you might guess, as the rod is perpendicular to how you’d expect to find it.

There’s a safe above the rod. Somehow I forgot to measure it, but my book is 6 inches by 9 inches.

Deeper in the room, you’ll find the beds and an ottoman on one side.

The bed side from the back of the room…

…and a closer view of one of the beds.

Between the beds you’ll find this bedside table with a drawer and an open cubby below.

The drawer is large enough for your important books.

Beyond the beds is this small ottoman.

The other side of the room has a bench, a unit that combines storage and appliances, with the TV above, and a desk.

Here’s the TV side from the back.

The bench, along with the ottoman on the other side of the room, provides some seating options beyond the desk chair.

My dresser was topped by a 54 inch TV above–according to the hotel’s website, some rooms have 49 inch TVs.

The three small-ish drawers are not enough for the four people these rooms will sleep, and are comparable to the storage you’ll find in un-refurbed Disney value resort rooms.

Next to these you’ll find the mini-fridge with interestingly, a microwave above–a rare amenity elsewhere.

Finally on this side you’ll find this desk, with a Keurig coffee service on it.

At the end of most rooms is a balcony, accessed by a set of curiously-offset windows.

The balcony is narrow.

Many views are of I-4, but you can also book pool, Disney Springs, and “Fireworks” views–the fireworks are quite distant.

Overall this is a somewhat ugly room, but, other than the bath, it is adequately-appointed.  At around 345 square feet, its overall size is in the lower end of the Disney deluxe resort range.  At around ~235 square feet, the size of the living area is smaller than that of all Disney moderate resorts and smaller than all Disney deluxe resorts except for the Wilderness and Animal Kingdom Lodges.

The amenities of this Disney Springs Resort Area Holiday Inn room make it adequate for couples and probably also adequate for three person families. Four person families may be challenged by the lack of storage and the bath design.
