    If you're looking for that 'something different' factor in central Florida, especially for a nice couple's break in rural Polk County, you should definitely consider the Streamsong Resort.

    We're just back from our first look at the brand new Staybridge Suites by SeaWorld (which are about 5-10mins walk from the park), and were very impressed at how spacious and well-suited this property is for longer stays of 2-3 weeks.



    The standard rooms are amazingly roomy and the 2-bed suites are positively huge. The lead-in price is currently at a bargain $137/night, inclusive of their buffet breakfast, and they are as low as $106/night in September.



    Every room has practically a full kitchen, there is a guest laundry, and there are even barbecue grills for guest use on the excellent outdoor patio terrace.



    We'll be doing a full review for the Telegraph in due course, but we just wanted to flag this up first, as it is so new.

    They look extremely nice and a bargain at that price.

    Definitely, CL. We wouldn't normally be excited by such a (usually) bland chain hotel brand, but there is a lot of nice thought that has gone into this one.
