Located in the most appealing slice of downtown Orlando, Embassy sits 2 blocks from Lake Eola Park and Church Street. Typical Embassy floor plans and amenities are provided in all 167 rooms. Expect plain business décor, separate living and sleeping quarters, microwaves and refrigerators. And, of course, Embassy provides a yummy and free hot breakfast buffet.
Similar to Westin's limited workout facility, Embassy's exercise room supplies a few high-end cardio pieces, and that's it. If you only have 20 or 30 minutes to sweat on an elliptical, it will do. Otherwise, plan on running a few times around Lake Eola or driving 5 minutes to the YMCA (first visit is free).
Lap swimmers can go to the Y, but if your priority is the swim, you'll be happier at the outdoor Lake Highland Aquatic Center (smaller crowd and better pool, but, closed weekends).
