**SETG Top Choice
The Sheraton Broadway Resort Villas are a luxury home away from home. Ranging in size from a little under 500 square feet to over 1500 square feet, these villas offer full-size kitchens (some even with island countertops), large dining tables, a living room, and multiple bedrooms. Each villa has a washer and dryer in the room, too!
Amenities include free WiFi, a hot tub, a and a restaurant and bar with poolside dining. The gym is here is above average too and comes with cardio equipment, free weights, and exercise balls and mats.
The best part, though, are the amenities for the family. There are two beautiful outdoor pools and one indoor pool here, with a lazy river going and a splash area for the little kids.
They also have tennis courts, a walking path around a little pond great for a morning or even stroll, a volleyball court, basketball, and much more. You could just about have a great vacation here without even leaving the property.
This my TOP choice for places to stay in the area. Why? Because despite the size of each villa, the outstanding amenities for you and your family, and its close proximity to the convention center a night here costs about the same as many hotels in the area. I was honestly expecting much more when checking prices here.
Unfortunately, pets are not allowed at Sheraton Broadway Resort Villas.
