Greeted with a carafe of wine. Enjoyed our beautiful room with a sun porch. Some highway noise, but didn't affect our visit or our sleep. Very classy and wonderful breakfast!

What an amazing place ! My wife and I were in Orlando for a concert at the Amway Center and I thought I would surprise her with something different than the chain hotels we normally stay. After I read some of the reviews, I called the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne. The front desk clerk was extremely helpful and recommended the Attic Room in the Dr. Phillips House. When we arrived, Rafael quickly checked us in, invited us to the complimentary cocktail hour, and then sent us off to our room with a complimentary carafe of wine The room was awesome. It even had a marble shower with a marble double whirlpool tub. The house itself was amazing with beautiful antiques everywhere. The next morning we had a great breakfast which is served in the I.W. Phillips House. Just a great experience. I highly recommend you forgo the chain hotels and give the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne a try. I will never stay anywhere else in Orlando.

We stayed at Dr. Phillips House which was a nicely restored historical building. Loved the furnishings throughout and the paint scheme went beautifully with the architectural design. The room was spacious, nicely done. Breakfast was good but would have preferred to be served restaurant style with menu.

We stayed at the Courtyard to avoid the traffic going to the Orlando airport during rush hour from another town in Florida. The GPS took us to around Lake Lucerne without actually getting us to the B&B. They have a different address for the main office which would have made finding the inn much easier. The room itself was huge and needed some more decoration/furniture to be intimate and the bathroom likewise needed updating. The bed was comfortable, the temperature comfortable and in spite of being close to the crosstown expressway, quiet. Breakfast was modest and serve yourself. There was no staff there to lighten up the morning and guests fended for themselves. Fortunately there weren't many people the morning we stayed and those that were there were very nice making the morning enjoyable.

I was very satisfied with my stay and really enjoyed strolling through the courtyard with my kids. The noise from the wedding was a bit intrusive, but the dance music ended by 940 (front desk did warn me in advance, although they said the end time would be 9). For most people this wouldn't be an issue, so it's not a big deal in the grand scheme. Just keep it in mind if you're looking for something tranquil or if you're traveling with little ones. the location was central and the surrounding neighborhoods are beautiful. My room was a 2-room apt and I really liked having the separate bedrooms -- quite spacious. I'll stay again if I have the opportunity (but might plan better for possible wedding activities!).

We stayed in the Welborn Suites, and the apartment syle room was very clean. We felt very relaxed since it was more like home and we could spread out on the sofa and watch tv or read. We loved staying here! It was right in the middle of the city, but you felt as if you were in your own little world. The courtyard was beautiful, we enjoyed eating breakfast on the porch and took it all in. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the free cocktails hour was a nice touch. We would stay here again!

I stayed for a week at the Courtyards! Wonderful experience and staff. Well prepared and safe also. In the heart of downtown Orlando - but for the traffic noise a joyous place to stay! Near everything. Set-up for wedding on time and well prepared. Excellent breakfast at I W Phillips house. SUPER wedding at Dr. Phillips house. Our room at the Wellborn - awesome; a little old but decor was SUPER. Only concern - I suffer from allergies - one building, the Front Office, Norman Parry house has CATS roaming around. NOT good for me.

Love the garden and cozy twinkle lights It's old and charming. It's very romantic. I prefer the IW because its smaller and more secluded ( away from the overpass) It's absolutely stunning in the evening.

Great place to stay if you want to be left alone. Some fixtures in the Wellborn Jacuzzi Suite did not work. Two lights out in bathroom. There was no coffee pot in the room, but the makings for coffee were there. Hard to find location. The bushes in front of the Normant/office building along the sidewalk really need to be trimmed. We had to wade in about 2" of water during our walk to the 6-7 cocktail hour as the sidewalk was blocked for passage with overgrown bushes. The breakfast coffee was great. The French toast strata and spinach and cheese strata was also tasty and a great addition. It would be a good idea to tell people on the website or at check in that there are cats on the premises. The one on the Victorian couch at cocktail hour kept rubbing up against me and I am allergic to cats. The room cooled nicely, and the music did stop at 10:30 as stated in the brochures. It would be useful to have a phone book in the room for people who need to look up delivery places or restaurants nearby.
