I-Drive hotels?

Looking for an I-Drive hotel for the last leg of our August '21 hol, walking distance to Icon Park (15/20 mins or so?)...
Was looking at Wyndham Resort, but gets some really dodgy reviews on TA, and Courtyard by Marriott International Drive/Convention Centre is showing as no rooms, and we've done Rosen at Pointe before...
Any suggestions folks?

Stayed there a couple of years ago and would recommend it as well.

Another for the Homewood suites or behind that is the Springhill suites which is a bit cheaper but the rooms were large . Stayed at both and they were both excellent and great location

We really loved our stay at Sonesta Suites. Really lovely staff, spacious rooms and breakfast included.

We stayed at the Wyndham in 2017. We loved our 5 nights there. Good location, nice pool area and rooms. Slightly odd layout but would stay there again. Trip Advisor is always harsh. Pics in my 2017 trip report in my signature below.

Homewood i found was better so if cheaper itís a bargain . There is a few springhills on I drive so might be a different one . I also stayed at one further down I drive which was very nice but much more expensive . Advantage at Homewood is that you can get a separate bedroom. Stayed in about 6 Different places along I drive , never had a bad one . 😃

So, thanks for all the suggestions all, greatly received 🙂

Couldn't see Homewood on Hotels.com (which was on TopCashback at a nifty 11%), Sonesta didn't have the layout we wanted (2 queens... Though as Tyke gets older, 2 bedroom suites will be the order of the day for future trips methinks).

In the end, plumped for Autograph's Castle hotel - by no means the cheapest, but a solid 9/10 on their ratings (and hey, Rosen Inn at Pointe is looking stupidly expensive at the mo)... Also, 11% cashback not to be sniffed at.
