Hotels in Orlando, Florida

Orlando is the largest inland city in Florida, USA and aptly nicknamed the “Theme Park Capital of the World”.  Because of its location, Florida has a moderate to hot climate and does not experience the cold, snowy conditions that most other states do.  While the coastline isn’t all that far away, if you plan on visiting during the hot summer months, make sure that your hotel in Orlando has swimming pool facilities.  Given the local climate, even the cheaper motels in Orlando, Florida should be able to offer such features. For families self-contained serviced apartments in Orlando are a good option.
