If your visit to the area includes little ones of the child or pet variety, Aloft Orlando International Drive is the place for you.

For kids, the hotel has a pool to burn up the day’s energy and an on-site pantry, Re:Fuel by Aloft, to keep snacks stocked and bellies full.
Located at 5730 Central Florida Parkway in Orlando, you’ll find that this hotel is convenient to many of the area’s must-see locales.
