Charming but lacking

Posted Nov 17, 2014
Pros: Location was amazing. The 1930s elevator was charming, same with most of the decor.
Cons: The personality of the staff was strange. The breakfast was next to inedible.
Location: The restaurants and bars are within seconds of the hotel. We did a bar crawl one evening and sauntered back to the hotel room. It was wonderful.
The walls were incredibly thin, you could hear any and all conversation on the adjoining rooms. The sink was inside the bedroom (maybe all but the deluxe suites it's different). The shower was clean enough but they didn't provide conditioner, just shampoo. Be sure to bring your own toiletries! The breakfast was lacking. The turkey sausage was actually inedible. I had to spit it out. Being downtown, we couldn't sleep in past 7am. Saturday morning there was a road race and they were BLASTING music that woke us up. On Sunday, the city was doing maintenance at 7am and were walking around with loud lawn equipment. Since the windows are original glass panes, they muffle absolutely no noise. We found out that the hotel funds the church that they are a part of. I wish I would have known about that sooner, it made us very uncomforable. I wish that they cared more about the history and preserving the heritage of the building vs the funding of a church. Whether or not that's true, that's the feel that we got. No doubt that wouldn't bother the majority of the patrons. Conversation seemed to always go back to that.

Old hotel with quirky rooms. Great service and breakfast. Snacks and water in the dining room were great. Lots of things to do near by.

Must try

A great job on restoration. Atmosphere definitely fits the time period the hotel was built. We will definitely stay there again. Staff was so accommodating and pleasant.

A great place to stay and unwind

Posted Jul 22, 2014 on Hotels.com
We really enjoyed our stay at the Edgewater. Hospitality was outstanding. Breakfast was wonderful. We loved to walk around the town of Winter Garden, formerly a citrus shipping center, that is undergoing a renaissance of growth and charm. There is a great bike path running through the town and to points beyond along an old railroad thruway. Historical museum is being relocated to a new modern facility and the old railroad museum is a quaint must-see. Winter Garden is an old Florida historical buff's dream.

Going back in time

I was enchanted by all the bygone era memorabilia in this charming hotel. Just walking around thel lobby, halls, our room and the breakfast area was like taking a trip back to my grandma's house. The staff is very helpful and gracious and the included home-cooked breakfast was delicious.

Not bad, but old and small

Needs to combine some rooms to make them bigger. Small beds, AC is shaky at times while the vents don't adjust and pointed directly on my bed. Excellent staff!!!

Nice early 1900 era hotel feel with a bed and breakfast environment. The ground floor contains the five star Chief Table's restrauant and tasting room plus a early era feel ice cream palor. There is also a Thai restrauant on the ground level of the hotel.

We had a great one night stay and wish we could have stayed longer. This is more a bed and breakfast than a hotel. The staff was super friendly and breakfast could be prepared almost any way you would like. The hotel was very clean and my children loved all the "old-fashioned decorations". The Historic area of Winter Garden is a southern gem with so many restaurants and shops all in walking distance.

Nice vintage hotel

Posted Apr 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel managers were wonderful people and the decorations were lovely. Great breakfast. Perfect downtown location. We did not have warm water in the sink, and there was nowhere to hang wet towels. Sheets and the bedroom were clean, but there were very dusty dried flowers on the breakfast table and there was some dust and moldy wood in the bathroom. The biggest inconvenience was having to either call someone to operate the elevator or climbing the stairs to get to our room. There was never anyone at the front desk. Snacks were available free of charge. Room was small for the price.
