Because holidays in Kissimmee usually revolve around Orlando's theme parks the resort's hotels revolve around making your visits as convenient as possible. For that reason, they're typically within a short driving distance from the area's top draws. On top of this, free theme park transportation is pretty standard. And the hotels themselves aren't anything to forget about – some feature arcades and Olympic-sized swimming pools, luxury decor and mini golf courses.
At Celebration Suites, guests are treated to motel-style quarters that are focused around two swimming pools. The hotel is just beside the shops and restaurants of Kissimmee's popular Old Town quarters, but is privy to its own array of on-site sports like mini golf, basketball and a playground. And on top of this, you'll have access to a free shuttle service to nearby theme parks, including the Walt Disney World Resort.
The accommodation here is all suites, all the time. That means you'll get extra space for a lie in, plus a kitchenette and dining area. They even have terraces or balconies, too.
The Ramada Gateway and Inn offers no-fuss rooms that are just what they sound like – a gateway to Kissimmee's theme parks, which are only a 10-minute drive away. On-site are two swimming pools whose terraces are stacked with sunbeds, as well as an outdoor gazebo for a little shade from the sun.
If you want to avoid dining at the parks, the hotel offers a grill restaurant and pizzeria, plus a sports bar. As for keeping active, there's a basketball court and fitness centre, not to mention a mini golf course.
Regal Oaks doesn't provide your average holiday accommodation. It's more like a home-away-from-home, because you'll stay in actual homes instead of a hotel. Providing that little extra dash of comfort for your holiday, you'll have a neighbourhood to come home to, instead of a high rise.
Here, you'll have access to your own private two or four-bedroom town house, equipped with modern decor and flatscreen TVs, plus, they're located within walking distance from the retro main street of Old Town. As if that weren't enough, each town house even features its own hot tub out on the patio.
Serious luxury is found at the Paradise Palms Resort, where each of the five and six-bedroom townhouses comes with its own private pools. And that's not even counting the resort's communal pool, which is also surrounded by a games room, grill restaurant and cinema, as well as ample amounts of thatched umbrellas and sunbeds.
Each of the townhouses comes ready with full kitchen facilities, and some even feature their own games rooms. The decor is modern, to say the least, steeped in soothing tones and plush furniture, as well as that classic manicured lawn from your favourite American films.
